I wrote something about “kinky-pinky: which referenced Robert Maplethorpe’s nearly obscene erotic and homoerotic photographs but also that something about Palo Alto police and someone describing a suspect as “hinky” which means suspicious.
I bought Webster’s 11th edition just this year 2020 to replace or as a companion to my Webster’s 9th, and indeed, eight months later, looked up “Hinky”.
It entered the language in 1956, from a language called “argot” not ot be confused with the French word “argot’. It was a secret language but now cops are repeating this to the press and eventually here to Plastic Alto.
Ok.Okey dokey.Okily dokily.
Someone had read my article called “Hinky-Pinky” which popped up on my stats page.
I had about 75 page views today. Maybe the hinky-pinky reader was looking for Pinky Kushner, the mother of Rachel Kushner and the friend of the late Alden Van Buskirk.
I didn’t realize until I watched the tape again, 9 years later that Pinky Kushner has a son named Alden.
