What is a protective dike? Is that a large woman standing by the river going, (deep voice) "Don't go in there!" (redneck voice) "But Betty!..." (deep voice) "Don't go in there! Stay away from there! Don't go in there!"
I know, you can't say the word "dyke" anymore, you can't even say "lesbian", it's "women in comfortable shoes." Thank you very much!
