Mr. High Brow

I was at this open mic last night when one of the comics asked if anyone in the audience knew what "the stranger" is.

I said, "Yeah, it's a book by Albert Camus, dealing with existentialism."
The comic responded, "What? No! Huh? Think lower-brow."

Turns out it has to do with making your hand fall asleep and then masturbating, making it feel like someone else is doing it.

So, I was close.

Rock On,

Well. You learn something new every day.

The low-brow, that is.

hey nanny goats in panties,

truth be told, i did know the "other" definition, but since I recently re-read Camus's definition, that's what came to my mind first.

happy to educate!

rock on,

My guess would have been the Billy Joel album.

That seems like way too much trouble - especially since I am well acquainted and I doubt that the alleged stranger could do a better job.

I can't speak for you though.

hey caitlin,

hadn't even thought of that, but yeah, i'm with ya (now that you mentioned it)

hey david,

in this day and age, i dont like sex with strangers.

You never saw "Boiler Room"? Lil James Caan tells people how he does the stranger all the time and explains it to his buddies.

I hope the comic didn't use that joke onstage, unless he has a Boiler Room writing credit.
