Rick Perry Makes Blow Job/Glory Hole Reference

Apparently thinking the GOP presidential primary needed a sexual element beyond Herman Cain's alleged history, Rick Santorum's googleness and Newt Gingrich's sequential wives, Rick Perry has added his little bit.

Which consisted of referencing glory-hole blow jobs.

In a radio interview with Bill O'Reilly, Perry said of the current Cain firestorm:

"Any time that you rise to the top of the polls, any time that you appear that you are going to be an individual of substance that those on the left are concerned about, you're going to get whacked," Perry told O'Reilly when asked whether the scrutiny of Herman Cain served as a cautionary tale.

"As you said" - he continued to O'Reilly - "it's Herman's turn in the barrel."

Oh, Rick.

The "turn in the barrel" phrase comes from an old joke; here's a typical version:

This logger gets assigned to a remote lumber camp. He works hard and makes friends easily enough, and things are going just fine for a while. There's a bar and darts and TV and all, and plenty of ways for the guys to keep themselves amused in the long northern nights.

However, after some time goes by, there's one thing the guy wants that he can't find in the camp -- sex. He mentions to his best friend there and the friend smiles and says, "You're not the first one who misses that! Come behind Cabin Six on Saturday night and I'll show you something".

The guy shows up, nervous but curious, that Saturday to see his friend standing beside a barrel, zipping up his fly. The friend smiles at him and says, "Okay, just stick your cock in the barrel and you'll be happy. Go ahead, try it." The friend walks away and after some internal debate, the guy unzips, sticks himself in the barrel, and gets the best blow job he's ever had.

Next Saturday, the same thing happens. A steady stream of guys makes their way to behind Cabin Six and the new guy gets into the routine.

A couple of weeks later, the guy gets the courage to thank his friend for the tip. His friend smiles and says, "Isn't it great? You can visit every weekend. Oh, except for three weeks from now."

"Why not?"

"Because that's your turn in the barrel."

Suck away, Herman. Perry's up next.

The way I read the phrase was like from "fish in a barrel". Nothing more slimy and fishy than politicians.

If this was an art film, I could understand you not knowing about it, but this is freaking Brian De Palma. It's a really good movie with a young John Travolta. Check it out, you won't be disappointed.

So you directed an orchestra for the soundtrack of the movie Blow Out? Is that what you're claiming?

Look up Blow Out. Nice use of exclamation points though.

This is WRONG, Richard Connelly! WRONG! WRONG! WRONG! Everyone knows the joke took place on a boat, not in a logging camp.

I thought kids at camp threw a cat into the barrel with a snake and waiting until the noise died down to see who won.

And then from that moment on, any unpleasant task was talked about as your turn in the barrel.

Everyone seems to be defending the JERK.  If they would look at the pictuer that cam with 6this post you would see Perry "practicinghis favorite form, of sex BESIDES screwing everyone.  Looks like he has had a LOT of practice at it.

So is the old Polka Song "Roll out the Barrel" possibly a reference as well...?  :-)

For whatever it's worth, I've "read  some business books dirt bag" and I have never, never, never heard or seen this phrase used except in jokes about oral sex.

Only the Houston Press would relate Perry's comment about Cain's "turn in the barrel" to this sort of joke. Really sick minds at Houston Press,

You are such an a-hole for writing this. Very dis-honest. If you read some business books dirt bag, you would know this also means taking a turn in the middle (barrel) for various people  to take shots and ask tough questions.

(ones) turn in the barrel

noun

a dirty or unpleasant task that one must do since it is part ofone's share of the work, and that others have taken their turn doingbefore them. In the military, it is sometimes referred to doing KP, butin times of combat, might have been used to mean taking on a verydangerous chore such as walking point on recon.

yeah. It's a dirty and unpleasant unpleasant task. it's about getting gang fucked by other men. That's the definition. Period.That said, I can't imagine why Rick would have a problem with this.

"While high"? What exactly was he on? What, you can tell me because you are just assuming he was?

Hey, I can't help it if Dem President Clinton couldn't keep it in his pants and then lied to every American. He shouldn't have done either one of those, don't blame it on us.

Well played...I was wondering that about Fishwrap, myself, but you put it more eloquently than my T. Rex brain could.

Back to the business at hand(job), why is RP sweating being outed so much that he has to give speeches while high? Everyone knows that sex scandals give Repubs street cred (in Repubs' minds only). Yet we've got to spend millions of tax dollars investigating a Demo sex scandal, thank you, Ken Starr. He deserves to be sentenced to Waco.

 You know you could always do a simple web search to end your ignorance. It's not my job to school you.

You believe Guest's comment about there is only one definition? Really?

Winchesteracademy
Winchesteracademy

I don't really understand your point.  You have offered a definition (with no authoritative citation, btw) that explains how the phrase is used, not the origin of the phrase.  Other commenters have offered origins, which you reject out of hand.  You resort to ad hominem attacks. 

Do you expect to win an argument?
