"I can't be with a hooker, because they all grew up watching me. It's very awkward."

Bob Saget, as quoted in today's Times.

Apparently, Mr. Saget succeeds in telling the dirtiest version of The Aristocrats joke, which definitely must count for something.

The whole Bob Saget/Danny Tanner dichotomy is actually pretty interesting. In the end, you gotta commend Bob for just being who he is, even if it is kind of shocking and traumatic.

It makes me think of this quote from Whit Stillman's The Last Days of Disco:

"Do you know that Shakespearean admonition 'To thine one self be true'? It's premised on the idea that 'thine own self' is pretty good, being true to which is commendable. But what if 'thine own self' is not so good? What if it's pretty bad? Would it be better, in that case, not to be true to 'thine own self'?"

I just the Bob Saget episode of "Entourage" last night. He *was* pretty funny.
