    Because he’s going to … avoid getting her pregnant?

    Or is he going to do what Jerry’s friend did to Elaine on the date?

    This may not have been a CIDU for Bill, but it sure is for me. I see no humor. not even the “oy veh” variety, unless trying to fabricate a new type of term for “casting couch” is supposed to be funny.

    P.S. It seems like 85% of the “humor” in that Seinfield clip @1 is simply that the actors have to dance around a word that the censors won’t let them say on TV. Let the lady say “dick” just once, and the entire skit would evaporate.

    P.P.S. I remember a single line in Blazing Saddles (spoken by Cleavon Little) that was more funny than that entire clip: “Pardon me while I whip this out.

    Does he call it the pull out couch cause he doesn’t wanna stain the cushions when he sleeps with it?

    Pulling it out has more than one meaning. Maybe he can’t be good good, but he’s always careful.

    If that’s the explanation, this cartoon may be in the running for Super Geezer Reference of the Year.

    “This is my bed. This is my bed here in the basement of my parent’s house. Do I have to spell ‘loser’ for you?”

    What do you call pull-outers, or out-pullers? Fathers.

    Ooten, what does that have to do with geezers? Do kids today never pull it out?

    Speaking of geezers (like me), I remember an anti-war graffito from the early 1970’s:

    “Nixon, pull out like your father should have.”

    Boise Ed (#8), I wouldn’t know what kids today do. I bow to the no doubt superior knowledge of Terry (#7) but I would have thought that “being careful” in the sense in which that expression was used 50 years ago and more had been made obsolete by more modern and effective measures.

    @ Boise Ed (8) - “Clink!” (the penny just dropped.) If you had made that comment sooner, I would have gotten the joke before I posted @2. (But then I would have been railing against disgusting rather than nonsensical humor. At least the woman in the cartoon agrees with me.)

    The counterpoint to #7:
