from Stephen King's "The Running Man":

Quote
The cop relaxed, his face subtle and Chinese with disappointment.
Quote
Soon they all stood stripped and anonymous, penises dangling between their legs like forgotten warclubs.
Quote
His anus felt hot and embarrassed

Yes, I said yes, I will, Yes.

From James Joyce's Ulysses, when Molly Bloom is asked "will you name the band who released Wind and Wuthering?"

^ Forgot I'd posted that - it seemed funny at the time, sorry.

Best I can come up with at the moment is from the novel 'Fear', the scene a college professor's house.
Quote from:  L Ron Hubbard
Somewhere there was a scurrying sound as though a scholarly rat had been annoyed while gnawing on some learned tome.
Oh, that sort of scurrying.

Wind and Wuthering was a Genesis album.  Or is that the joke?  Sorry.

Yeah, that's the joke. If it was Tales from Topographic Oceans her answer wouldn't have been "unintentionally funny and shit".

I am a hoot.

"She kissed him right there on the service road"

Don't remember if there were any commas

Quote from: Richard Adams
Rowf's rump slid suddenly forward as smoothly as a turd from a healthy anus, and dropped out of sight.

I think it was William Goldman who swore he had seen this sentence in some tacky airport novel:

"His eyes slid down the front of her dress."

Craig Brown has written that he was once planning to parody Jackie Collins in Private Eye, so was reading one of her novels to get some idea of her style, and found it included the sentence "Men flipped over her nipples", at which point he decided she was beyond parody.
