It wasn't what came after the word "suck" that made a difference: it was
the elided predecessor that made sense to these kids. THEIR context was
the word "cocksucker" and its derivatives.

Maybe; maybe sometimes--but how does one KNOW this? Is there any evidence
other than anecdotal assumption and projection (usually not from the users
themselves, but from their shocked and horrified teachers and parents)? I
grant you that when a high school student in 1965 read Shakespeare's "Where
the bee sucks there suck I" he or she may have associated "sucks" with
fellatio--or nursing--or childish all-day-sucker activity. But what CONCRETE
evidence is there that fellatio is primary?

PS: My spell-checker just asked me if I would like to add "cocksucker" and
"fellatio" to the dictionary. AOL is sooo prudish!
