Today’s laugh comes to us from the 1967 film Thoroughly Modern Millie. In the following clip we find our country bumpkin (Julie Andrews) plopped into the big city of New York. Faced with the fact that she is in the dreaded state of not being like everybody else *gasp* this opening number depicts to what extremes we will go to fit in. If you only know Julie Andrews as the nun from The Sound of Musicyou may find this clip a little risque. The really funny part comes near the end.
That clip is the Bee’s Knees. Sometimes I think the things that modern men and women do to make themselves to look “normal” is similarly stupid. As an example, I’m absolutely sick of effeminate men. Retrosexual ’til the day I die – word up. Now if only the hair on my head was curly I could transplant it onto my back and really look sexy. You know it! Then I could go to public pools and show of my back of love, clogging up the pools drains and proving my manliness to the world. My wife is drooling as we speak …
Are you Sodom and Gomorrah-able? Have you ever done anything Sodom and Gomorrah-able? Is that just nonsense that rhymes with adorable? Help!
P.S. In case mentioning Thoroughly Modern Millie is hurting my retrosexual cred you got to understand that I was doing push-ups while talking to the Most Interesting Man in the World on my bluetooth when my wife walks in and says I need to see something. I enjoy listening to my wife and trust her when she says I need to see something. She was right.
