Romantics may believe that Rose Street in Edinburgh was named after the wild roses on the slopes above the North Loch (now Waverley Station). But Rose Street is commonly used to describe red-light districts of European towns, and to "pluck a rose" was a common euphemism for picking up a prostitute.
And an infomercial gone bad. LOL. very funny.

Uh...My middle name is Rose. Awkward! ;P
That's funny. All those people thinking how "romantic" rose street is...
Well.. guess it depends on your definition of romance...
That ladder thing cracked me up. Its like trying to sell condoms by making a commercial with all your pregnant customers or something.
I'm starting a house... You want to apply?
All right. What's your name gonna be for the house? ;)
Ummmmmmmmmm... i dunno! Most my nicknames and whatnot revolve around my alter ego "Captain Katilleana Dantes"... *shifty eyes* I'm a pirate captain. :)
:( It's not loading over here.
Glad I'm not the only one. I thought my computer might be dying again and I as gonna cry.
Interesting. *nod* Poor girls. I don't think prostitution is wrong, but it's bad when it's not carefully monitored. Pimps are awful. I find prostitution in history a very fascinating subject.
Yeah, I agree. Women who do the work need to be in control of it. In so many countries, especially ones with profound poverty, it's out of control for the women.
If you do the link to my favorites on that account (luludi2) there are other videos that I found interesting, though admittedly weird in some cases, lol. Still, interesting to me :)
P.S. Those aren't my only interests, lol! I have other accounts there.
lol! Awesome! I've got it bookmarked so I shall do some looking. Permission to borrow some of your youtubes you have posted for the journal? :)
Actually, they aren't mine, but ones I've marked as favorites, but feel free:)
I'd definitely be one of those "romantics." I can, however, honestly claim I am more of a lilac and peony person.
(AKA Not a whore...not that there's anything wrong with being a prostitute...)
