The Problem with Making Homemade Porn by Howie Good

Which would you rather take, the shortest route or the most scenic? My mother wouldn’t drive on highways, ever, a phobia I don’t share but many apparently do. Give me a number, I said in a stern voice. No one could. The zoo wasn’t to blame. My mother would turn over in her grave if I put Velveeta on my enchiladas. A woman just back from a weekend road trip fell naked into bed, and instantly there were a dozen different kinds of monkeys and big wildcats floating like fiery debris all around us.
