Who's jerking who off?

I had some beef jerky today. Now, to most people that sentence is the very essence of the double-entendre. And quite right too. It's magical. It's very difficult to tell someone you had some beef jerky without them thinking you've been indecent. It's so difficult to separate the product from the masturbation euphemism one has to assume this is a gift from Kinki the God of Smut.

Or perhaps the two meanings are not quite so independent from each other? Obviously solo indecency referred to as jerking is self explanatory, but from my research I gather that the word jerky is derived from "Charqui" meaning dried meat, which seems a little tenuous to me. Is it be possible the original manufacturers of beef jerky for the masses call it jerky because of their fairly warped sense of humour? I hope so.

I love the idea that when this product first hit the market in the USofA, the perverse maker or makers of the product would hang around in stores sniggering away as old women, so pure and Bibley they wouldn't give their fire a poke, would wonder in and ask the guy behind the counter for a load of his beef jerky.

Wherever you are today fellas, I salute you.
