Queer as folk and Quims

Q (1)


I heard a girl talk about her quim

‘What’s that’? I asked on a whim

‘It’s another word for your fairy

You know, down there…your Mary

Well, that’s what I call mine

It’s an old word from Victorian times’

‘Oh ¬†you mean your vagina’? says I

She looked at me, horrified

‘Me ma doesn’t let me use that word

She said that it’s very rude

Like, you don’t say penis, you say willy’

‘Ah go away’ says I, ‘sure that just silly

And what about your breasts?

Or do you just call them your chest’?

‘No, they’re me bosoms or me boobs’

‘And are you allowed to mention your pubes?’

‘Well, they’re just part of me Mary’ says she

‘Oh are you not allowed say gee?’

I laughed but she didn’t take the joke

It’s true what they say, there’s nowt queer as folk
