One Simple Question

After a good, long run, we have decided to close our forums in an effort to refocus attention to other sections of the site. Fortunately for you all, we're living in a time where discussion of a favorite topic now has a lot of homes. So we encourage you all to bring your ravenous love for discussion to Chuck's official Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram. And, as always, you can still post comments on all News updates. Thank you for your loyalty and passion over the years. These changes will happen June 1.

Okay, I'm not dumb, and I may be a newbie but I'm not going to bother everyone with "what's his real name" or "why do they fight" questions. I understand the deep symbolism in the book as well as the religious aspects the notion of spiritual freedom and the urge to be in touch with your primal urges, so this has nothing to do with any of that. Mine is a simple use of launguage used in both the movie and the book. When "Jack" meets Bob and is describing him he says "people with this much honesty make me go a big rubbery one, if you know what I mean."

Well I don't. I have no idea what a big rubbery one is. My initial interpretation of a big rubbery one made me think of a semi (which is a semi-erect penis) which probably isn't correct. I suppose that it could mean that Jack sort of felt pitty on him and there was a bond, but I'm not sure since Jack distances himself from everyone except Tyler.

Anybody have any insight?
