Every year I get older, the generational gap turns into more and more of a void. Case in point:

Crisco -- it\'s not just for cookies

If you’re old enough, you remember an era when STDs typically weren’t fatal, when latex barriers weren’t the sine qua non of safer sex, and, thus, when “lube” meant anything slippery and handy.

I just about fell out of my rocking chair and swallowed my choppers when I saw the comment on this post:

“I never knew Crisco could be used a lubrication but I can see that it would be give a nice slippery coat. However, one is told never to use Crisco if you are going to use a condom.”

Somebody got the necessary safety info, but not an ounce of the cultural context that went with it.
