Foreign Affairs

Foreign Affairs is the name of the renowned journal of international relations. Foreign affairs, of course, literally means sexual relations often of an illicit nature carried on away from home. If one were to take the title literally, you might have articles with titles like “Carryings On At the World Economic Forum." Perhaps Foreign Affairs would examine polyamory amongst diplomats addressing the issue of cryptocurrency and Sam Bankman Fried. There has always been a good deal of monkeying around at these summits with power allowing for a certain amount of license and licentiousness. That’s why top guns are called "movers and shakers." Johnson demonstrated this with his beloved "Jumbo" in the men's rooms of congress (sexual and legislative) where he thought nothing of raining on both another lawmaker’s parade and shoes. You may have seen Richard Haass, the venerable editor of Foreign Affairs on Fareed Zakaria’s GPS, but imagine him roaming the corridors of Madame Claude’s famous brothel, a home away from home, for many leaders with Dominique Strauss-Kahn's tastes—and relating the "doings" in capitols with suggestive names Pyongyang and Bang Cock.
