Thought for a Saturday Afternoon

Seeing someone try to defend the strange hyper-clothed prudishness of the 5e Player's Handbook on the grounds that it now makes D&D acceptable to play with their young child made me want to introduce an alternative (though faithful) definition of prudish:

Prudish: Taking such offense (real or feigned) at uncovered skin that one utterly loses sight of every other relevant thing.

'Daddy, I know what I want to be now."
'Yes, honey?'
'Can I be a transsexual devil-spawned warlock who made a contractual and romantic pact with Belial to offer him human sacrifices in return for magical powers?'
'Sure, darling, as long as you keep your knees covered.'

C.S. Lewis was right, more than sixty years ago (and how far we've come since then):

It's a bent world.
