Lawrence Paros. The Erotic Tongue (1984): 'Nobody really knows where the hole came from, though Captain Grose, the roguish eighteenth- century lexicographer, had his own ideas about it . His version opens with an angel who had been employed in forming women, forgetting to cut off their parts-of-generation . Enter Lucifer who took it upon himself to set matters right. Taking a somewhat direct approach to the problem, he placed himself in a sawpit with a scythe fixed to a stick in his hand and directed the women to straddle the pit . He then gave each the mark-of-the-beast (c. 1715). The pit being too deep for the length of his instrument , tall women received only a moderate scratch , but little women, because their legs were so short and more within his reach, received a somewhat larger cut . The long and the short of it? They both went home with an everlasting-wound (17th C), known in some quarters as the divine-scar (18th C). The Devil, henceforth, was to be known as Old Nick or Ole Scratch; and the c**t [cunt, as slit (17th-20th C), nick , and gash (both 16th-20thC).'
