Culturally Literate

Tuesday, 24 June 2008

The old saying is true. Birds of a feather really do hang out.

During an inproptu staff meeting, my boss confirmed that once again he would be riding on a float in the annual 4th of July parade.

Seemingly off-topic, I ask my colleagues if they know who Ron Jeremy is.

Boss: “Is he gonna be in the parade too?”

*****************
Background: Earlier this morning, PC mentioned Ron Jeremy’s name and when I returned a blank stare (which is a pretty regular occurance!), PC responded “you must know who Ron Jeremy is. He’s a cultural icon! Ask anyone at work. They’ll know exactly who he is.”
*****************

For the record, 100% of our staff is culturally illiterate.

P.S. This is a G-rated site. So if you too are culturally illiterate, you’ll have to do the Google search yourself ’cause I’m not gonna link this guy.

    You know he’s Jewish too, right? And he used to be a teacher. Don’t ask me why I know all this.

    Last year (or the year before, I don’t remember) there was a bad reality show on MTV or VH1( or some channel like that). Ron Jeremy was one of the cast members along with Vanilla Ice. Anyway, I asked David the same question, “Who is Ron Jeremy?” He explained who he was and what he was famous for – AND described him as a “legend”. Sick.

    LOL…..I don’t blame you for not linking him! I wouldn’t either. I sure didn’t know he used to be a teacher. Of what, I ask? And he doesn’t exactly strike me as legend material either.

    Thanks for the visit and comments. If the heat is bothering you already – then you are just ahead of your time! LOL

    I was watching an HBO special on him a couple of years ago. Even though he’s financially set for life he’s a total miser.

    Um…why is it that we girls are repulsed by this kind of thing and the guys think he’s a “legend?” Even JockBro can only find fault with his charitable heart…
