Dear God, we’re lazy. And summer’s hot. And the subways suck. What else can I complain about? Rent sucks, my AC broke, whatever.
You now have the Menswearhouse Podcast as your beacon of hope and we’re back with a hypothetical sitch.
If you had a blank check to write to one fledgling designer, who would it be?
Who will win? Who will be banished to the menswearhouse dungeons? When will we get a cease and desist letter from Men’s Warehouse?
These answers and more in episode 14, now in iTunes low definition.
Hellz yeah boi, judging by your avatar you have the sunglass segment covered.
Knight’s zeal to play in the game is endearing, and his plea to Jordan gives us maybe the best non-Murray line in the movie: “I may not be tall, but I am slow.” That is a great general road map for a joke: Use the first clause of a sentence to set up viewer expectations for what the second clause will be, and flip those expectations on their head. That model probably reached its pop-culture apex on 30 Rock, which mined it in almost every episode.
It also produced my favorite line from Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, when Jim Carrey tells Courteney Cox to leave him alone so he can investigate the dolphin pool: “If I’m not back in five minutes — [pause for effect] — just wait longer.” Boom.
