I mentioned that I was seeing John Waters’s Christmas Show in Austin on Saturday, but I never followed up because I got sick the day after, and have been sprawled on my couch having a “Dexter” marathon ever since. John was as delightfully perverse (and blasphemous) as I’d hoped he would be. The Q&A session afterwards gave us gems such as, “Can I kiss your tiny little moustache?” and “Are you attracted to Latinos?” (The answers were, “No. I don’t let any stranger touch me in a non-sexual manner,” and “Sure. I’m equal opportunity,” respectively.)
But one of my favorite moments was when he talked about abortion protesters:
“I hate driving by abortion clinics and seeing dirty old men standing around outside. I feel like yelling at them, ‘Impregnators!’”
I love that man.
