Al Franken: God Spoke

There's a new Stuart Smalley film out, and it's a "documentary" about Franken's book tour for 'Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them'. The word "documentary" is in quotes, because it appears to be about as much of a "doc" as those "documentaries" done of pr0no stars.

And, just as AVN would "review" one of those type of "docs", there's a "review" of Stuart's "documentary" here. It sounds especially appropriate for those who can't get enough boorish, low-class behavior in their own lives:

My favorite segment was that of Franken attending a Newsweek party packed full of republicans, none of whom wanted him there. It's here that his scrappy outsider status is most obvious; he barely gets into the party, first of all, as the bouncer is convinced there's no way he was invited. Once inside, Franken's close to your worst nightmare as a guest, seeking out people like Henry Kissinger and Boyden Gray to mock with the kind of unselfconscious glee that makes him look slightly unhinged. He revels in the discomfort his presence causes, and refuses to be cowed. On the way home he mocks the grudging, blue-blooded accomodation of his hostess, Lally Weymouth.

Rest assured however: no chairs were harmed in the making of the "film".

Dude, spell check! Don't you mean "porno stars"?

Pr0no or is a leet-speak way of saying porn. Like "n1nj@ h@xx0r" (ninja hacker).

Oh...Well, I don't even know what leet-speak means. This computer lingo is still Greek to me.
