Na, that sounds more like another neologism by those wacky Acadians. [Razz]

Yes, I heard Kellogg's Corn Flakes was invented for keeping down the urges.

Aside from that...Yes the translations are correct.

You're correct, it is "traductions"; "traduisons "is the verb at the present tense, first person plural. And I agree that the translation is fairly accurate; in fact, it is the French text that contains some spelling mistakes (circonflex accents that shouldn't be there in "embrase", pic #3 and "vomit", pic #11, and an extra s in "nagučre", pic #4) but sloppy spelling is hardly new or rare.

As for there being no mention of blindness, it would be a dead giveaway of a fake of American origin if there were: here, masturbation is supposed to make you deaf.

I've found a mention of this "Livre sans titre" here. Looks real to me.

I don't know Marie. We might suffer terrible things like tender breasts at certain times, along with cramps of the uterus, and may eventually *GASP* bleed from the crotch.

I'm incline to agree this is misconceived or misrepresented. Coughing up blood sounds more like a virus he contaged either bloodborne pathogen, airborne plague, or similar to STD/AIDS.

Masturbation would harm child bearing yes, but to destroy your life umongst the illustration this sounds more like a plague or virus attracted.

Actually, considering the era in which this has supposedly been written, the spelling is pretty accurate. The grammar and syntax definitely feel like something from that era too.

Well. I don't know how to put it. I remember listening to Don and Mike one day on WJFK DC. This kid was to bangs his testicles together for a party and said he would probably lose a bit of his child bearing for a while.

Quote : "But then why did he "stiffen"?"

Actually, a more accurate translation of the penultimate text would be:

"He raves - he struggles (stiffens) against death - yet death is stronger".

Poor boy - he should have known you're supposed to wash your hands before masturbating.

Especially after touching radio-active waste.

The picture is a parody of the famous internet joke picture "Everytime you masturbate, God kills a kitten. Please think of the kittens!" pic.

But men don't bear children...

Do you mean it would mess with his sperm count?

Let's just round out the kitties/masturbation pictures to it's ultimate conclusion, and speak no more on it.

(Edited because I just noticed there's a swear in the picture)
