What is this publication?
Maledicta Monitor was essentially a mini-Maledicta
-- lots of short goodies, but no long articles or glossaries. Nothing from M.M.
was published in the Maledicta journal. The 8 typeset issues contain the equivalent
of about 120 pages of double-spaced 8-1/2" by 11" typewritten pages.
These issues will not be reprinted. Originally $16.00, now only $4.00 for
complete set, plus postage. Such a deal. Get 'em while they last. Postage: USA =
$1.00; Canada = $1.50; all other countries = $3.00. Note: there's no
shipping charge if Maledicta Monitor is mailed with books.
Super-greedy Dutch used-book peddlers, such as Fokas Holthuis / Paulbooks, try to
sell this set for 20 Euro, about $30!

After Becky, 28, soon-to-be-divorced
wife of the Marquess of Blandford, posed for a London society magazine in silk stockings
and lacy underwear, her father-in-law, the Duke of Marlborough, called her a "filthy
little scrubber" (=prostitute). (San Francisco Chronicle, 25 Jan
According to U.S. Ambassador Robert Strauss,

Stanford University neurosurgeon Frances
Conley, who in 1991 resigned in a huff over sexism by fellow physicians (then returned),
is not above sexism herself. When a young resident physician did not pay attention
during surgery, Dr. Conley threatened to "kick the left one" [=his
left testicle]. She defends the occasional use of her castrating threat: "Sometimes
it takes sexism to fight sexism." (SFC, 25 Feb 92: A13)
Expensive Cop Talk
Former Livermore (Calif.) policewoman Sue
Hatcher, 36, in 1990 sued her department for sexual harassment by male colleagues.
One asked her, "Are you a spitter or a swallower?" When she got
out of the patrol car, another asked her, "Can I sniff your car seat now?"
When another policeman grabbed her by the shoulders and shook her, she asked
him what he was doing. "I want to watch your tits bounce." After
7-1/2 years of such cop talk, "virgin queen" Hatcher developed ulcers and
collapsed. She won a $175,000 settlement and a lifetime monthly disability pay of
$1,600. (San Francisco Examiner, 5 Jan 92: A11)

which is the equivalent of "Fuck you!" and the Visayan Bilat ka sa imong
ina! (lit., You're the fuckhole of your mother!) meaning "You're an asshole!"
--- Walter W. sent the worst Italian anti-mother insult I have heard: Se la strada
sarà pavimentata con cazzi, la sua mamma camminerebbe con culo! * (If the street were
paved with pricks, your mother would walk on her ass!) --- "Dad, what's that
thing between mama's legs?" - "That's a vulva." - "Dad, then
what's a cunt?" - "That's the rest of your mother." (Bruce R.)
Italian editor (V.T.) corrected this: Se la strada fosse pavimentata con i cazzi,
tua madre camminerebbe col culo!

Expletived Divorce Lawyers
New York matrimonial lawyer Alvin Ashley

to replace some 28 geographical names such as "Nigger Creek," "Niggerhead
Bluff" and "Dead Nigger Draw" with names honoring historical
local blacks; for example, "Jack Johnson Creek" or "Dorie Miller Bluff."
He's particularly upset that locals still use the decades-old "nigger names,"
even though they have been sanitized years ago to "Negro Creek" and "Negrohead
Bluff." (Milwaukee Journal, 30 Sept 90: J1+10)
