Keeping matters in perspective

Perhaps we should be relieved that we only have to put up Jacqui's S's inanitities. We could have worse:

"In 1158, Holy Roman Emperor Frederick Barbarossa punished prostitutes traveling with the army. When caught in the act, the prostitute was ordered to have her nose cut off in an attempt to make her less attractive. A soldier caught in the act sometimes had a finger cut off or an eye removed."

And plenty more examples of previous regulation good and bad on http://prostitution.procon.org/viewresource.asp?resourceID=000117

Why would you cut off a whore's nose, in order to make her less attractive?

I would have thought that it would have made her more attractive, to the deepthroat aficionados at least.

Maybe the Emperor 'nose' something that we don't. :D

Yes, very holy of him, torturing and disfiguring people because they behave in a way that doesn't fit in with someone else's chosen ethic. Bastard! :D
