  • 'But this brunette kid, Molly, is the nuts. What a pair of bubbies! High and pointed - and that ain't no cupform either, brother; that's God.

    I wish to Christ that kraut Bruno would bust a blood vessel some day, bending them horseshoes. Goddamn, that Molly kid's got legs like a racehorse. Maybe I could give her one jump and then blow the show. Jesus, it would be worth it, to get into that.'

  • "The reverend lover with surprise

    Peeps in her bubbies and her eyes,

    And kisses both, and tries--and tries.

    The evening in this hellish play,

    Beside his guineas, thrown away,

    Provoked the priest to that degree,

    He swore, 'The fault is not in me.

    Your damned close-stool so near my nose,

    Your dirty smock, and stinking toes

    Would make a Hercules as tame

    As any beau that you can name.'"
