Cherry Popped

1998: Hear "Zoot Suit Riot" and convince myself I'm "really into" swing music despite only knowing this song and "Jump Jive an' Wail."

2013: Only just now realize the vulgar implications of the band name Cherry Poppin' Daddies and physically shudder from repulsion.

 How did that slip by me for 15 years? I knew what it meant to pop a cherry, but I guess I never gave a second thought to a swing band being so crass.
