    1. IMHO it depends in large measure on who cuts the cheese. If he does, as long as she isn’t choking or trying to breathe cross-eyed through her top layer of clothing, and provided it hasn’t knocked her cat off the back of the couch it should be okay. If she does, then there is a vast range for assessment. ‘Silent’ is lady like even if it leads gasping or burning eyes because silence … in this context only …is feminine.. as is deniability. Something that goes on for a respectable amount of time and sputters like a Harley exhaust or sounds like it makes its own gravy would be most unfortunate. She would need to be a great kisser of one sort or another. IMHO.

    2. Just need to get a pet daschund that likes to eat people food. Plausible deniability for all.

    3. It’s traditionally nerve-racking, I think, but this is a cool example of an eggcorn.
