This Is Not The Oscar Mayer Wiener Mobile
I'm not trying to defend Weiner, or say that his predicament is the same as a gay teenager. It's a totally different situation. I'm just saying, watching all that happen these past eleven days, brought me right back to those years in high school, making up stories of girls, and fearing I'd be exposed. I kind of wish everyone could experience being backed into a corner like that. Maybe they'd be a little more understanding about others.
All that said, I just want to know, when did we all become so damn prudish? I was watching all the news channels, and the network news shows, and they all referred to Weiner's wiener photo as lewd. Why is that photo of Weiner in those gray underpants called lewd, and Mark Wahlberg posing for Calvin Klein twenty years ago, called advertising?
