I'm not going to lie. I think this is funny. One, because I've liked Kevin Bacon since Animal House. Two, because he kind of has a tiny point in all the snark here. I mean, women are naked ALL THE TIME in movies and now on TV (seriously), but when do you ever see dudes naked? And three, because the word "weiner" makes me giggle. I can't help it. I have a 12-year old boy living inside me that occasionally laughs at these things.
We've talked about this women-are-naked-more-than-men phenomenon on our radio show before. Mock is convinced that it's because "things dangle" on dudes, and dangly stuff = aesthetically displeasing to viewers. To support her thesis, listeners have called into our show and informed me that dudes' twigs-and-berries just aren't attractive like female parts, and "Daisy, come ON, people just don't want to SEE THAT."
Alright. Point taken.
Whatever the reason – and even if feminists make Bacon some sort of champion of freaking gender equality because of it – this video cracked me up.
"Kevin, you're not even in this movie….why are you here, and why are you naked?"
