Expressway to yrAnus

Phrases taken out of context from a collection of philosophical investigations of Jean-Francois Lyotard's The Differend that I have been proofreading at work:

solar anus

mad anus

haunted by the ring of the anus

anus-matrix

Out of context indeed: Lyotard didn't perfect the solar anus until "The Postmodern Condition" and the anus-matrix was always heavily indebted to Baudrillard.

what will you give me if i find some way to work the term "anus-matrix" into the dissertation chapter i'm supposed to be writing at this very minute?

and "haunted by the ring of the anus" sounds like the weird al version of that big hit song by squeeze.
