The top ten island debauchers were auctioned off: $5.00/head reserve. I am not naming names.

I am not sure of my facts. I don't know if they were auctioned off... or thrown off (the rock).

My philosopical quandary remains unresolved: Does someone have to bauch before they can debauch? Or is debaucher's mission to debauch someone who is already bauched. (as in a bauch exorcist).

And WTF is a bauch to begin with? Like a medieval translation of the word BOTCH? If this be the case, I would need to be "debotched" retrospectively, for decades.

Too much coffee this morning?

OK, I couldn't stand it and had to look this up. Not that the defination has resolved anything. From Merriam Webster online dictionary:

Main Entry: de·bauch·ery
Pronunciation: \di-ˈbȯ-chə-rē, -chrē, -ˈbä-\
Function: noun
Inflected Form(s): plural de·bauch·er·ies
Date: 1642
1 a : extreme indulgence in sensuality b plural : orgies
2 archaic : seduction from virtue or duty


OK... check date. 1642. Back then, people were getting bauched all over the place and were clueless. As in... "WTF just happened to you? You look really bauched up!" All this time I thought the word was a verb.

Let's say, you go to BBI... have a few drinks and then... and when you are getting ready to leave you feel totally bauched out.

Call Bauch Busters and get Rebauched! A few shots of Febreeze ( from a spray can), right in the bauche. Good as new...
If that doesn't do it... I guess see your doctor.

Hoverusa... we need some additional counsel here....

my guess is that Merriams hasn't ever visited our favorite rock and it's probably just as good

my take is that what bauchs on the rock stays on the rock,.....
although, I've heard of some people demanding $$ for the pictures they took of the debauchees,.....

I myself think they were just jealous not to have been involved!

I don't get my share of the rock till Mid Sept! too long!!

Yeah... Merriam doesn't know doodly never having been to BBI. The word was invented on BBI back in 1642 by the natives and fur traders.

Four Beaver pelts = one debauch.

If your'e coming to BBI in September, don't forget your spray cans of Febreeze and pepper spray. Be a boyscout: Be prepaired!

if you know how to search
you will find they fit!

rock!

*darn* I've been had again!
my last debauch cost me 6 good pelts!

worst was I paid in advance,.... and lets say the "quality " was lacking,
so trying to get a pelt back didn't work!

I've learned , only carry as much as you can afford to lose when on the rock!
or carry a large stick!

:)

Whoops.

Be street smart when dealing on beaver-anything.

4 beaver pelts = a bauch.

2 bauches = a febreeze debauch.

2 debauches = a free swim from BBI to Cheboygan.

Since 1642, better factor in inflation. So if you get debauched on BBI, better have a 55 gallon drum of febreeze for wampum. Or a semi load of Beavers.

Life aint simple, is it? And don't forget the state and federal Bauch tax which applies to all bauches, debauches, rebauches and bauched beavers.

To bauch or not to bauch... That is the question!
