Welcome Eric Zorn Reader

For those of you who don’t know, a couple of weeks ago I aped the opening of I Now Pronounce you Chuck and Larry by saying that they lost millions on “Not-A-Fag” seats. The mandatory seat that meatheads have to have in between them to ensure maximum masculinity. Major kudos, or any other cereal bar for that matter to Eric Zorn for picking up this bit and running with it. In comedy our business is that of observance, all we are is what observations hit. So it’s with great joy that Eric found the observation to be worthy enough to post, but doubly so that hundreds of people have responded. It turns out this was a really worthwhile observation.

For those of you who don’t know, a couple of weeks ago I aped the opening of I Now Pronounce you Chuck and Larry by saying that they lost millions on “Not-A-Fag” seats. The mandatory seat that meatheads have to have in between them to ensure maximum masculinity. Major kudos, or any other cereal bar for that matter to Eric Zorn for picking up this bit and running with it. In comedy our business is that of observance, all we are is what observations hit.

…and it’s not mine. My friend of fifteen years, Bart Kias, used to do this bit in college when we’d go see movies, there’s actually a lot more to the bit and as he reminded me recently the bit is actually the “Not A Homo” seat, which is funnier. Chuck And Larry made me laugh because if there’s one thing Sandler’s demo is, it’s “not gay” and I love that that was the marketing on it. It’s absurd. Anyway, I got excited for the perfect place to throw out Bart’s bit, which is now properly credited. Now that I’ve got all you smart Tribune Reader-types here, let me ask you this. Have you ever seen a cute button? They ought to say “Cute as a Koala.” Nothing? Nothing? All yours Bart.
