Another Night, Another Video

Mercifully, this one was comparatively short at 20 minutes. It was about harassment other than the sexual variety. Yes, it seems that just about anyone can be a victim of harassment, whether due to race, religion, sex, national origin, age, size, pregnancy... I found out that even I fall into a "protected category," since I'm over 40 and now protected against age discrimination. Goody-goody gumdrops.

Remember those stand-up talk scripts I told you about yesterday? Well, among the illustrations was a "person of mass" carrying a hoe and a watering pitcher. I pointed out that this was probably offensive, since it seemed to indicate that "persons of mass" could not aspire to a career higher than landscaping. Apparently I was just one night ahead of my time. But where is the consistency? Don't we all have the right to never, ever be offended by anyone at any time? Isn't that in the Constitution someplace?

I think it's time for you to get back into your mission impossible stealth mode. Sneak in before the next mandatory video viewing and swap out the tape. Perhaps a Wallace and Grommet feature, or maybe something from your collection of lesbian porn?

Alas, porn on a DVD won't play on a VCR. ;-)
