Sigh, I am reminded of angels on pins and think I am somehow responsible for it.
Howling with laughter!
1. Take the pins out and let the poor angels go IMMEDIATELY! You are a very bad Craven indeed!
2. Cruel people have been making angels dance on the heads of pins for millenia - you are one of a long line, so puff thyself not up.
3. Letty, I think Craven may be referring to the bonobo (or pigmy chimpanzee) - however, as a digressor I cannot let this go - to seek to ascertain the whole of an animal's reasons for having sex or its experiences while doing so makes training angels to dance (cruelly) on the heads of pins look easy.
4. Adultery, I believe, became a popular, and banned, concept with the ascendency of patriarchal societies - where it became crucial to know whose kid belonged to which daddy. (And the jealousy thing, too, I am sure.)
