I have a theory. It might be bunnies.

And now, a directory of photographs of Marilyn Monroe. (I didn't find any terribly NSFW, but YMMV, FWIW, LSMFT.)

Most modern starlets don't do much for me. They're pretty enough, but seem inhuman, somehow. Maybe it's the collagen and Botox. Maybe it's the photoshoppery. Marilyn, though...

There's

something

about

Marilyn.

Left radical is one of the radical forms of 'dog', right radical is a Non-General Use character meaning 'insert/squeeze between'. 'Dog' is actually a miscopying of a radical that meant 'hill'. This character originally referred to narrow fields squeezed between hills. It now means 'narrow' in a broader sense. Henshall suggests taking the right radical as 'man' (夫) and 'out of' (八), and as a mnemonic: 'Man tries to get away from dog in narrow lane.'
