My name is Fanny.


got this off the interwebs. 
Mrs. Duffey wants us to limit it to this kinda stuff, unless you've got a ring on it.

Mrs. Duffey explains "Love in its Physical and Moral Phases."

First of all, she rocks it out and uses the term "Boy-Beaux." This should be the new word for 2012. Then, to add an even more interesting dynamic, she quotes another woman writer of her day, Fanny Fern.
Are you $hitting me? Fanny Fern?
I am totally running down to the courthouse tomorrow and legally changing my name to Fanny Fern. Seriously. You can just call me Fanny from now on.
So, this chapter is basically all about boyfriends and how you should not have sex with them. *snort*

You're about thirty-three years too late, Mrs. D.

  3. Fanny was the original Margaret Mitchell choice for her heroine in Gone with the Wind. I'm not sure if Scarlett was the way to go. Fanny was funner.

  4. Sorry for this long comment, but I read a joke in Reader's Digest years ago that speaks to the Fanny issue.

    Three good friends and their wives decided to go on a vacation together. Unfortunately, just as they were setting out, a semi-trailer hit their van, sending them all to St. Peter at the pearly gates.

    The first man stepped forward and Peter looked in the Big Book and then said, "I'm sorry, I won't be able to let you in. All you thought about during your life was money, money, money! In fact you didn't marry until you found a girl named Penny. Next!"

    So the second man stepped forward. Peter shook his head and said, "I'm sorry I won't be able to let you in. All you thought about during your life was drinking! In fact you didn't marry until you found a girl named Sherry. Next."

    The third man turned to his wife and said, "Come on, Fanny, we may as well leave now."
