"Dry bob" is often associated with George Gordon, Lord Byron, who in Don Juan satirically linked the term to Robert Southey. But in fact "dry bob" existed well before Byron. It refers to "male coition without emission" -- or as Meat Loaf eloquently expressed it it, "all dressed up with nowhere to go."
Isn't the United States presently stuck with a painfully throbbing "dry bob"? Even before the Wall Street crisis there was immense undirected anger on the part of the prols -- perhaps even a genuine revolutionary impulse. The nomination of Sarah Palin brilliantly tapped into this. And now with the Wall Street crisis -- which everyone knows about and nobody understands -- the anger and confusion is much greater. However, there won't be a revolution, there can't be one, and there shouldn't be one. What should there be instead? No one knows. It's very frustrating. Why, it's a big ol' "dry bob."
