So, I'm watching something on the TV the other night where two guys are talking...

"I got to third base with her"

...and it occurred to me that while I know they're on about how far they got with the girl in question, I've no idea what these "bases" represent.

Someone American care to explain?

Not sure if things have changed... but when I was in school...

1st base = swapping spit
2nd base = up the shirt
3rd base = down the pants
Homerun = get to smoke a cig.

Unless they were talking about managing a softball game. Then maybe it was really 3rd Base.

One wonders. Although first base and the infamous homerun are pretty constant no matter where you go, the definitions of second and third base tend to change from place to place and time to time.

Well, basically, because later on in life, very often you directly do a homerun after first base

I thought it was

1 - up the shirt & down the pants
2 - ugly bump
3 - repeat as long as possible
HR - move out of town and never see her again

It's like this around here...

1st base = kissing and making out over the clothes
2nd base = Oral Sex
3rd base = Sex
4th base = She craps on your chest while wearing a gorilla suit.

My sig is 1 pixel too big.

That's a 2 bagger, not to be confused with a double bagger.

After much soul searching, I've decided on my new sig!

As in... ...you expect to be kissed after the home run? When the sleep monster is dragging him down? Hence:

I prefer to steal 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and home on occasion...

In fact, I can guarantee that I've been around the bases more than anybody else around here!
