The Combination of Monday with Movies is What the Id is About
Monday Movies was hashing out the fine point of this debate in the in-laws’ hot tub Saturday night, and got pressed on whether there was a civil way to savage the stupid. While it remains our contention that the most vital abuse is not aimed at the dim but at the cruel, we did point out that “Groucho managed to run circles around Margaret Dumont without resorting to accusing her of an actual mental disability.”
In that spirit, and in deference to certain other well-known Weblogian tendencies, Slavoj Žižek explains the Marx Brothers:
You probably didn’t need Žižek to tell you that Harpo=id, but it never hurts to hear Groucho remark on Margaret Dumont’s square footage. Clearly, Monday Movies once again caught no flick this week and is trying to distract from that sorry state of affairs with this weird gossip-columnist affectation. How about you? Did you see anything?
