Dilly Boy Bar

Posted by – February 19, 2010

Dairy Queen – whose name is funny enough, really, & kind of obscene – sells something they call a Dilly Bar.

A Dilly Bar. It sounds obscene in so many ways, doesn’t it?

But what makes me laugh the hardest is that “dilly boy” is slang (in Polari) for a male prostitute. So theoretically, a bar where male prostitutes hang out should be called a Dilly Boy Bar.

(Okay, so my mind’s in the gutter. And?)

    haha Your mind is following the same path mine always is. It really is pretty funny though, dilly bar.

    Helen, you really need to get back to Brooklyn. Even just for a visit. Wisconsin is getting to you.

    Wow, that whole post sounds like you’ve never been east of NYC in your entire life. Growing up in Oregon, I’m pretty used to DQs and dilly bars. Not that its not funny, I just like poking fun at east coasters…

    What? They don’t have Dairy Queens in NYC? How dreadful.

  5. caprice says:

    Yes, Veronica, there are no Dairy Queens in NYC. Certainly none in Manhattan. Here, a DQ is a Drag Queen.

    We do have an entire borough named Queens.

    (BTW, Amanda, Oregon, etc. is west of NYC, not east–unless you’re going via China.)
