The "Classic" Had it Coming



So, the first time that I saw the above sketch, I was nonplussed for the first portion of it, not understanding what, purportedly, what the point of this thing was until, suddenly the penny dropped.

It's D.H. Lawrence to the life--stilted, artificial dialogue, prurience masquerading as poetry, deliciously humorless and without nuance, writing lines no human being could say aloud without cracking up.

As witness the actors, who go up one after the other.

Really, Ferrell's beard should have tipped me off right away.
