FBLA Editor Upsets Orange County With Husband’s Naughty Bits


Who knew people in the OC were so prissy? FBLA editrix, Mayrav Saar, wrote a column about meeting some of her husband’s college friends and readers went berserk. Okay, so she mentioned in passing that she’d taken a cell-photo of his naughty bits (at his request) to bring along. The rest of the piece recounts her reconnecting with these people, her own college days, and the nature of friendship, all in Saar’s charming, funny style.

Some of the OC Register’s readers (the funny-looking, inbred ones) didn’t find it funny or charming, writing:

I really don’t enjoy reading an article about her husband’s penis and her drunken liberal friends enjoying the picture. Please use a little common sense.

FBLA is forced to agree–what’s the point of reading about his penis without seeing the picture? A photo essay would be even better.
