|Here is a paragraph like below: Eddie saw the big man turning and went into a mad slide along the floor,whizzing along like some kid in a disco contest, a kid so jived-up he didn't realize he'd left his entire John travolta outfit, underwear included, behind; he went with his wang wagging and his bare knees first heating and then scorching as the friction built up.|
I wonder what is the mean of "he didn't realize he'd left his entire john Travolta outfit, underwear included, behind;he went with his wang wagging and his bare knees first heating and then scorching as the friction built up."
|English translation:I'm sure that Kirill has the answer to this...|
John Travolta outfit-http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0076666/ The outfit/pose has been praised and panned ever since it came out.
underwear included- he's naked
wang wagging- think of a naked man dancing furiously... I don't think you need more imagery, but if you do wang is slang for penis.
bare knees heating...- Again, the imagery is a naked man on the dance floor. He's sliding across the floor. Bare knees/skin builds up much more friction than a polyester outfit.
I haven't read the book, but from the numerous posts about it I feel like I have. I'm pretty sure that Eddie (who's naked) is trying to make his escape from the big man. :-)
