deep throat

by lillythehtcat

ive been catching a little flak lately over deep throat.. both my calling wonderlands wonderful source of all things you people need to know.. deep throat.. and my recent abuse of ol deep throat.  now im really surprised that everyone doesnt know the origin of the name..at least in this context..uh heh heh heh.  so heres a brief history lesson for both those to young too remember and..or too lazy to look it up..

After the June 17, 1972 burglary of the Democratic National Committee offices in the Watergate Hotel in Washington D.C., Washington Post reporters Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein began investigating ties between the break-in and the Nixon administration. As part of their research, Woodward and Bernstein used an informant who was able to substantiate information they had already gathered as well as encourage their investigation into different areas.

Though the informant was willing to share information, he did not want to be identified nor even quoted anonymously. In journalism, sensitive information learned in this way is called “deep background” (more restrictive than information offered just “off the record”). The managing editor at The Washington Post, Howard Simons, created the informant’s nickname by modifying the term “deep background” into a play-on-words reference to the popular 1972 pornographic movie Deep Throat.

as for my recent abuse…when dt starts getting in the way of my possible retirement to some far off exotic place like tel aviv and a bevy of pretty coeds ready to feed me cheesy bits..you bet dt is going to catch my wrath…kinda like ol bill catching hillarys wrath for another version of…..hey…did you see the recent picture of the ol gal…

so lets not feel too sorry for wonderlands version of deep throat….could be catchin hell from ol hill instead of loveable ol me.

by the way the parking garage in rossslyn..virginia..where woodward and bernstein met with the first deep throat has been made a national monument…wonder if our garage will be made a monument some day.

from the garage
