Body parts as well now?

 

One with both in, LIVER POOL south PARK WAY.

PENIStone.   

 

I am both extremely sorry and slightly proud of myself.

PEN is not a body part. Anyway, I think it's already been used.

ARMathwaite and bassaLEG

Seems we have drifted to film sets too now.

As we all know, the Armathwaite is the device that keeps the bedsheet tightly wrapped around the actress, just under her armpits, during bedroom scenes in films.
