‘Whatever lifts your luggage’ has replaced ‘whatever floats your boat’

Thanks to Dan Savage, in homage to George Rekers:

I propose that “whatever floats your boat” be immediately retired in favor of “whatever lifts your luggage.”

Savage deemed it. So it’s done.

Joe.My.God links to the Urban Dictionary entry, which already uses the term in a sentence:

“That gay hooker that renowned homophobe Dr. Rekers hired when he went overseas is not cute at all, but, whatever lifts your luggage.”


On October 27, 2010, Joe was one of five bloggers who interviewed President Obama. Joe is a DC-based political consultant with over twenty-five years of experience at both the state and federal level. Joe has managed political operations and legislative efforts for both candidates and issues-based organizations. For seven years, he was the Director of State Legislation at Handgun Control, Inc. He served as that organization's first Political Director during the 2000 cycle. Joe is a graduate of the University of Maine School of Law. In addition, he has a Masters in Public Administration from Lehigh University and received his B.A. from the University of New Hampshire. Joe also has a fun dog, Petey, a worthy successor to Boomer, who got Joe through eight years of Bush and Cheney. Joe likes to think he is a world class athlete having finished the 2005 Chicago Marathon in the time of 4:10. He has completed six other marathons as well -- and is still determined to break the four hour mark.
