In a moment of petulance I mentioned that I had thought a PDF a Merkin. That was very unkind and I withdraw that comment, and he has my apologies.



RS and I have been trying to get to the root - please excuse the pun - of the Merkin. There are some interesting sites on the web, but we were wondering if anyone had any further knowledge as to when it came into being. Here are a couple of the sites we've visitied:

http://www.merkinworld.com/

http://www.fleurielocks.co.uk/ItemsMerkin.htm

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Merkin

We're not looking for further sites, just some straight forward comments from the forum. :D

What's this "we" stuff? :)

32Bravo is the one obsessed with merkins.

Me? I just like them au naturel.

I'm more than a little disturbed by this Wiki statement in 32Bravo's link:

There are many different ways of wearing a merkin, although most involve placing the merkin on the vulva or the scrotum.
It indicates a certain lack of familiarity with the hirsute aspects of human anatomy.

What we down here in the Antipodes call the map of Tassie (Tasmania http://www.tas.gov.au/tasmaniaonline/about/map.asp - an island full of inbred merkins :D )

ain't focused on scrota.

Well, one of my favourite film characters does go by the name of Merkin Muffley...

This name would be partially redundant down here, as a merkin is a muff, and vice versa.

Or is that the subtle point in your favourite film? :D

That was on on Wednesday night - and I forgot all about Pres Muffley (the name that is) :shock:

Well, as it includes characters like Colonel Bat-Guano and Brigadier-General Jack D. Ripper, I suspect it might just be...

Does anyone know whether Canadian Merkins are made from Beaver, or not?

Never managed to catch it, but there were some interesting characters in Captain Pugwash.

The accusation of being a gentleman is unfounded, but you might otherwise be right. I may have confused merkins with meerkats, which are really ugly pussies. :D

First time I've ever heard of ugly ones!... they always look pretty cute to me!:D

Be they metric, or good old imperial?

You're too bloody quick!

I deleted the post to re-post a bigger picture of the nasty pussies but, not surprisinlgy, you were onto the nasty pussies like a rat up a drainpipe. :D

So here, for the edification of other viewers, is the picture of the meerkats.

P.S. And after viewing the post on using a different image source, it's even bloody worse!

Bugger it.

I'll hotlink it for a clear image of the nasty pussies.

In the sense of letting the ferret out for a run?

Or the ferret getting a bloody nose? :)

Probably Navy lads.

Out of uniform, but otherwise a characteristic pose.

Too used to sunning themselves as they swan around the world. Also other issues related to sailors upon land after doing much the same at sea.

Infantry know not to expose themselves. :D

That's probably the reason for sailors being known as 'Jolly' Jack Tars!
