Yes, They Pay For This.... 

Let's go ahead and get this one out of the way, and I don't think I have any racier than that. More from that Female Sexuality documentary, which couldn't have been the most sensitive look at the subject. Did anyone see it? Did it ever run on TV? And was there a reason I was supposed to make some of these look like old books?

On a related note, are we as a country ever going to stop doing naughty takes on 1950's culture? And is squaresville kitschiness really still that ripe for exploration? Even This Modern World, which has milked that joke style every week for years seems to be finally getting away from it. Tim Burton may even be tired of it by now (though Ed Wood is his best film). I'm just saying that if you find yourself in any medium about to do parody featuring a guy with a pipe in his mouth saying "gosh" and "swell", consider the road less travelled for a change.

Unless you're making a buck off of it, of course.
