I recently heard from another website that Danny Thomas of the 'Make Room for Daddy' fame would hire prostitutes and make them defecate on glass tables while he watched underneath (yeah, I know). I was wondering, not only if this is true, but has anyone even heard this before or is one of Hollywood's secrets?

It was really Jackie Gleason and when they did it he would say "Hominahominahomiahomina".

You mean Danny would call Jackie and not a prostitute?

I recall a fictional character in some work of "literature" (mainstream, yes) doing that; (un)fortunately, I don't recall the title, but it's not a recent book. And the character wasn't Danny Thomas!

If I remember correctly it was Portnoy's Complaint. However, I haven't read it since I was 13 so my memory might be playing tricks on me.

For what it's worth, I know there was mention of this practice in Gabrielle Lavallée's book, "L'Alliance de la Brebis" (I'm not sure what the English title is). Roch Thériault, the leader of the cult, forced one of the female members to do this. (the book did recall actual events, though that doesn't automatically mean this really happened.)

I've heard this rumor, but associated with 1970s vocal jazz ensemble The Manhattan Transfer.

The other side of the subject- Noddy Holler (or however it's spelt) from the 70's band Slade said in an interview recently that he was on of the people that defeaceted on the sheet of glass above clients wanting that sort of thing. He said it paid the rent.

You bring to mind one of my favorite lines in a novel. In "The Choirboys" one cop is passed out under a glass coffee table. A female cop, wearing only a short bathrobe, sits on the table. The drunk cop wakes up and starts licking the bottom of the the table top. A third cop refers to the incident as "trying to eat pressed ham through the wrapper".

Theres a letter in a viz issue I have from a few years ago that goes like this.

quote:


Dear Letterbocks,

The other day my wife called me an 'animal'. I'd like to know what kind of animal would be able to lie under a glass table and masturbate while her sister shits on top of it.

Uhmm, ugh... well this is a not-so-uncommon fetish for quite a few Japanese men, except that there is no glass table involved. [Big Grin]
