deep in the night...

so in one of the lines of Gunther's Ding Dong Song, there's a bleeped word, even on the album version. the verse goes something like:

deep in the night, i'm looking for some fun
deep in the night, i'm looking for some love
deep in the night, i'm looking for some fun
deep in the night, i'm looking for some [bleep]

i don't know why i've never asked this question before, but what the fuck fits into that bleep that makes any degree of sense? it's not 'fucking' or 'pussy' because to follow the song's (ahem) complex poetic nature, it has to be one syllable. but it's not 'boobs' because that's not vulgar enough and it's not 'fuck' because that just doesn't make sense.

i suppose it could be that 'c' word that i'm not into, but i'd rather personally believe a different theory, that maybe the bleep is indictive of him wanting to censor what his *actual* desire is, which means that that word would be either 'cock' or 'dick'. the whole scantily-clad women thing in the video is a way to overimmerse you with the idea that he's this hot ladies-man that scores a lot of chicks when in reality he's suppressing his homosexual desires.

that would be pretty fantastic.

yeah, and come to think of it, i'm not exactly sure how that came about, why it triggers my negative reflex.

part of it could be its use as an insult, but that's true of 'pussy' too. i strongly oppose the use of 'pussy' as an insult to mean 'wimp' because i refuse to perpetuate that sort of mentality, but i don't have issues with 'pussy' when it refers to the actual pussy. maybe i just need to get used to 'cunt' in that sense, to use it in a way more literal and sexual as opposed to demeaning and thus take the edge off of that negative reflex.

that won't happen unless i have a partner that's not only comfortable enough with the word but encouraging about it.

(and of course to be clear, by 'not into' i mean the word as opposed to the actual body part, silly girl. ;) )

that feels very after the fact to me since the album version has the bleep too. it lends to my belief that that they didn't really have a word in mind there at all, that it was supposed to imply some sort of bleepable word, but not one that was deliberate. then the music video was made, and it was like, "oh. um..." so they used one of the clips from the other part of the verse.
