Sniffly, scratchy Saturday

There’s no Feministing Five interview this week, as I’m rather sick and sound a lot like a country music singer: scratchy, sexy and suddenly super pleased to be living in a small town.

Instead, here’s a link to last week’s interview with Rachel Maddow, in case you missed it, and a here’s a video that I sometimes like to watch when I’m feeling phlegm-y and gross:

This clip, taken from Perez’s favorite movie, has everything you could want on a cold, sniffly Saturday morning. Motorcycles! Scandalized ballerinas! Awkward on-stage sex re-enactment! Twenty-something foutté pirouettes (you do NOT want to try those with a runny nose, believe me. Snot + centrifugal force = disaster)!

Happy Saturday, everyone. Be well!
