This reminds me--I just heard a line in a song referencing ashes and
the hauling thereof. Does anyone have a more or less reliable story
on how we get from "have/get one's ashes hauled" to the sexual
reference, or vice versa? I googled my way to some suggestions and
assertions, but none seemed especially convincing. (I confess I
don't have my HDAS on me; maybe the answer lurks therein.)
