    Makes me think of a Hustler commercial I saw last night. Pretty young woman and a mime take their marks to make a commercial. The mime is pulling a rope next to the woman, and a male voice behind the camera asks the woman (to the best of my recollection), “What’s the mime doing?”

    “He’s in a box!” she says.

    The mime stops what he’s doing and looks at her like she’s stupid.

    He repeats the rope-pulling action, and the she’s prompted again to describe what he’s doing.

    “He’s in a BIG box!” she says.

    Now the mime looks at her like she’s a fucking idiot.

    Voiceover says, again to the best of my recollection, “They’re not rocket scientists. And we’re okay with that.”

    Part of the story? Ed, you just created a whole new story.

    There goes his career. I hope.

    “I was just sort of being something.” ? What the heck does that even mean? That makes no sense. Yeah, you were “being something” alright… A misogynist jerk, plain and simple.
