Toilets, Porn & Childhood Trauma: It Must Be Friday

Posted By on Fri, Apr 28, 2006 at 2:44 PM

It's Friday and you need some mindless entertainment. Fear not, for Pith has come to the rescue:

Well, Bush's approval ratings are in the crapper. Speaking of the crapper, there is a ghost haunting an English toilet.

Thanks to technology, we now have a whole new way to scar our children for life.

And in case you didn't see what we wrote in the paper, the Nashville band a The Pink Spiders are about to hit it big; their "Little Razorblade" video debuted on MTV's TRL this week. If you're on a Mac, this link is best for the video. If you're on a PC, MTV has the video for you. You can also vote for the video on the show. Of course, if the Pink Spiders do make it on the countdown, it's not like their video will really get played anyway since TRL plays less than half of each song.

And this, this is wonderful. Simply wonderful. A new television reality show invites porn stars to test their serious acting abilities in London's theater district, raising the question: Debbie can do Dallas, but can she take on Chekhov's "The Cherry Orchard"? This is maybe the best theatrical idea since the decision to turn T.S. Eliot's poems into a musical starring furries.

I have actually seen Debbie Does Dallas, and if I remember correctly, the film's title is misleading. She doesn't do Dallas at all; she does the men in her hometown in hopes of raising enough money to send her cheerleading squad to Dallas for a competition. I forget where she's from, but the proper title should probably be something like Debbie Does DuPage. Very disappointing.
