From the “Funbag” by Drew Magary:
The funhouse scene in Revenge of the Nerds, where Lewis Skolnick tongue-bangs Betty Childs has always bothered me. It’s goddamn rape! Skolnick tricked Childs by wearing Stan Gable’s mask. She thought she was banging her boyfriend Gable! Just because she ended up enjoying it and falling in love with the Tri-Lamb doesn’t mean it’s not rape.
I recently went to an engagement party where, because I am a complete fuckin’ weirdo, I brought this rape scene up and took an impromptu poll about whether it was indeed rape. About 1/3 of the people thought it was rape, 1/3 thought it wasn’t rape, and another 1/3 just gave me odd looks and walked away. Where do you stand? Is Lewis Skolnick a rapist?
It is awfully rapey. In fact, that entire movie is rooted in creepy behavior. The nerds break into a sorority and hide in the shower (CRIME). They plant surveillance cameras in that sorority (CRIME). And they hand out naked images taken from that footage at the Greek Carnival (CRIME!).
It’s a measure of how different things were in the 80′s when that kind of behavior was considered playful and humorous. I watched that movie a million times as a kid—to the point of memorizing pretty much all of the dialogue—and I often found myself hoping that one day I’d have the chance to trick a cheerleader into letting me go down on her, then pass around nude photos of her underneath whipped cream pies (shouldn’t Betty have been mad about that?). IT MADE A MONSTER OUT OF ME.
Christmas Special! Uncertain of whether or not this eclipses the hilarity of the first episode, but regardless (or irregardless, ha) it is enjoyable. Well, let me qualify that statement, if you have lived in Southie for 1+ years then you will find it hilarious, otherwise you might just look at it as being a terrible parody of Bostonians. False. It is awesome. Press play, watch it, and if you don’t like it, go back to Cambridge.
Thanks to SMP for the link.
I forgot who originally posted this on facebook, but since like 20 people threw it up I guess I’ll just give credit to most of my friends. Anyway, another Jimmy Kimmel special, letting kids open a present early, except the present is shitty. Awesome. I can only hope that I am this awesome as a parent later on to torture my kids like this. Here’s to hoping JKL stays on the air long enough for me to have kids and do things like this to them.
Thanks for this Sarah:
And neither do any other cats. Just like the rest of them, this cat doesn’t give a shit. “Want to play with your train set? Get a dog. I’m not moving out the of the way so you can drive your stupid train around. Get out of here.” Man, cats are the worst.
