The proof that we live in an increasingly “genital” world  …

A slip of the tongue by France’s interior minister has become an internet hit after he mistakenly spoke of “genital prints”. Brice Hortefeux meant to say fingerprints – empreintes digitales in French – but instead said empreintes génitales.He was distinguishing them from genetic prints – empreintes génétiques – or DNA records. He made the gaffe during a joint radio and television interview. Mr Hortefeux was discussing on RTL radio and LCI television the types of data police keep for tracking criminals.

Strange Random Genital Quote:

“The function of muscle is to pull and not to push, except in the case of the genitals and the tongue.” – Leonardo da Vinci (Italian draftsman, Painter, Sculptor, Architect and Engineer whose genius epitomized the Renaissance humanist ideal. 1452-1519)

    This is like years ago, somebody wrote (in Spanish) “tantos” (many), but it was published “tontos” (silly).
