Glenn Garvin Makes Crude Sexual Joke About Lawyers That Also Involves Killing Them!
I know lawyer jokes are pretty hip.
In fact, they're probably about as cutting-edge as cracking wise about airplane food.
That, plus the traffic in L.A.
Anyway, I was intrigued by Herald Executive Editor Anders Gyllenhaal's column today on the Pulitzers, in which he notes the "depth, precision and good writing that is part of the newspaper tradition."
As an editor, I'm sure Anders is proud of The Garvinator's story today on the new TV season, which includes this shining example of depth, precision, and good writing:
But even jaded lovers of lawyer jokes (Q: How can you tell if a lawyer is well hung? A: You can't get a finger between the rope and his neck!) will be glad to know that there's adequate legal representation available if all the homidical women on Spanish-language TV need to cross over.
Ha ha, oh boy that's a knee-slapper!
Putting aside that the joke is apropos of nothing, what's pathetic is that this lame, inappropriate effort at "humor" is contained in an article that otherwise decries TV's "slouching towards Gomorrah" slide into crude, vulgar, dumbed-down and offensive programming.
(Not that that would ever happen to our hometown newspaper, of course.)
