I don’t think that word means what you think it means.

The 1950’s.

I’m sitting here wondering how a decade in which TV married couples could only be seen on screen in twin beds, the mildest of what was considered to be coarse language was mercilessly censored, anything verbally or visually suggestive of sex was strictly verboten right down to the required covering of Barbara Eden’s navel in “I dream of Jeannie”, somehow let slip that the most popular show on television featured a young male character named Beaver Cleaver?

Not much to do today. Maybe I’ll go for a drive.

  1. Most beavers are wild critters. She’s managed to keep him there without biting anyone. That’s one calm beaver.

  2. The faux calm doesn’t fool me. It is a mystery but a known fact that boys can be in the company of beavers for years with no ill consequence, until one day the beaver bites him without provocation and from that point forward is not only bitten again and again, but is actively seeking the biting.
    I’ve seen a few beavers and this looks like a particularly nasty tempered one. I’d advise keeping a distance.

  3. The only beaver worth biting you is the one that is snuggly tucked away.
