The Graduate

Thursday, 15 August, Year 5 d.Tr. | Author: Mircea Popescu

The Graduatei is the definitive word on the shy, virginal male product of the meanwhile defunct upper middle class WASP environment.

Believe it or not, at some point in this world "boys" turned into "young men" upon reaching the ripe old age of twenty-one! And precious good it did them, too, as their parents still fundamentally treated them as pets. Believe it or not, at some point somewhere on this Earth twenty-one year old "young men" had never yet put a woman on her knees, let alone kill another man or taken a piss in public (let alone all over the damned public). Believe it or not civilisation is fucking poison, and of the worst kind.

So... Ben is concerned about his future. Ben thinks his parents deserve better than this! Ben suggests maybe they could do something else together ? Ben is curious as to what make the car was in which the woman's daughter got started. Ben figures she lost interest in Art over the years. Ben would like to know why exactly is it that the naked lady expertly TV-sheetwrapped in his bed doth not want him going out with her daughter. Is it because he's not good enough for her, perhaps ? You go straight to hell Mrs. Robinson!!! ii

So in spite of promising to not take her daughter out he does. Because well... his parents insist.


Depicted above, he, the daughter and a stripper. Because that's what you do with adolescent daughters of women you fuck that you've taken out in spite of their mother's hope and prayer : you take them to strip joints. That somehow makes it all okay.

You have got to see this thing. Preferably in company, but if none's available at least bring your memory.

  1. 1967, by Mike Nichols, with a very young Dustin Hoffman, Anne Bancroft, Katharine Ross. []
  2. It's incredible, by the way, just how hurtful the innocent can be. Probably the most dangerous soulslashers the world has to offer. []
