Dance, Monkey!: Taylor Newhall

Eats stinky cheese
By SARA FAITH ALTERMAN  |  March 19, 2009


WHAT SHOULD THE NEXT BARBIE BE? Stage Mom Barbie. After all those years of being in the spotlight, you know she's going to force her kid to do it and like it. I guess the follow-up to that would be Xanax Barbie.

NEWS OF THE AIG USING BAILOUT MONEY TO GIVE CURRENT (AND FORMER) EMPLOYEES $165 MILLION IN BONUSES HAS TAXPAYERS OUTRAGED. HOW SHOULD PRESIDENT OBAMA DEAL WITH THIS? That's easy: an old-fashioned spanking. I learned my lesson about taking inappropriate bonuses that way. We could have it on prime-time TV — "America's Top Executive Obama Spankings."

AUSTRIA'S CREEPIEST DAD, JOSEF FRITZL, HAS JUST PLEADED GUILTY TO CHARGES OF KEEPING HIS DAUGHTER LOCKED IN A BASEMENT DUNGEON FOR DECADES AND REPEATEDLY RAPING HER, RESULTING IN — YOU GOT IT — INCEST BABIES. WHO DO YOU HAVE LOCKED IN YOUR BASEMENT? ALSO, DID I OFFEND YOU WITH "INCEST BABIES"? Actually, I am offended. I don't think babies should be engaging in incest; they're much too young. As for my basement, I have the golden-egg-laying goose from Willy Wonka, and I eat golden omelets every day for breakfast. That's why I'm so strong.

WHAT'S THE BEST GADGET ON THE MARKET RIGHT NOW? I don't follow new gadgets. It's a waste of time because there's always going to be something new you have to buy right after it. I'm currently looking into buying a telegraph machine.

WHAT'S THE STINKIEST CHEESE? Not really sure. I'm more worried when the cracker is stinky. But I still usually eat it.

    If only there were some way to watch a con-artist houseboy give his cougar sugar mama a squirming reach-around, charm the pants off a candy-necklace string of countless empty-eyed Hollywood stick figures, lose his heart to an untouchable social chameleon, and, in the process, find himself .

    While New York is grittier, Los Angeles juicier, and Boston is wicked smahter, for some odd reason it is Montreal that, for two weeks every summer, becomes the epicenter of the comedy universe.

    Warm weather is supposed to be accessorized by lackaday, by a breezy sensibility best enjoyed with a frosty tall boy in one hand, the sloppy product of a back-yard barbecue in the other.
