hookers

Postby HOOTIE » Fri Feb 20, 2004 5:47 am

Was watching a show on the Civil War, and the untold stories of the flow of women. I didn't know the word hooker originated there? There was a Union general named John Hooker. He had his troops frequent the blocks of houses of ill repute. The press picked up on it, and called it Hookerville. Hence, hookers. :-D

Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

and check this .... when the union army kicked all the "Hookers" out of Tennesee, they put them on paddle boat and no one would take them, so they eventually all came back.

Anybody want to guess what the name of the boat was?



Idahoe ....... (say it slowly) :-D

There will come a day when Barry Bonds leaves baseball, and everything about the game will be the better for it.

I don't care about where the name came from, I care where the girl has been. :-o :-b

Note: For all the law-officers watching, I have never ordered a "sex worker" to my home.

They come to the hotel.
