Famous quotes containing the word paul:
“If men could menstruate ... clearly, menstruation would become an enviable, boast-worthy, masculine event: Men would brag about how long and how much.... Sanitary supplies would be federally funded and free. Of course, some men would still pay for the prestige of such commercial brands as Paul Newman Tampons, Muhammed Alis Rope-a-Dope Pads, John Wayne Maxi Pads, and Joe Namath Jock ShieldsFor Those Light Bachelor Days.”
