Hate Speech, Or Embracing Diversity?

It's often said about great speakers that they could read the phone book, and their audiences would be rapt. Well, I'm going to try something similar to that here. I'm going to post a page from my local phone book:

The other day, I needed a phone number, flipped the book open to that page -- and I burst out laughing.

How quickly will the (presumably unintended) humor appear to you folks?

Is it that the page covers (EXTREMELY OFFCOLOR CONTENT) "Dyk---Eat"

ExSubNuke:

Or after another 30 seconds of thought... an alternate pronunciation of "Dyk"... that rhymes with "lick".

Of course, he went by "Richie" rather than the more obvious nickname.

LOL.

Though that's probably not an accident. It wouldn't be that hard for someone laying out the page to adjust the sizes enough to change the names on top and bottom.

Stephen:

For a brief moment I thought you were a fan of English soap operas (Eastenders ...?).

*sigh* I suppose it was too much to hope for.
