Performance Art in the Film


"Will you help me do the dishes?"

"Help you do the dishes?"

"Well they're your dishes as much as mine."

"But you don't have a cock."

"What's that got to do with it?"

"A cock means you don't wash dishes. You have a cunt. A cunt means you wash dishes."

"I don't see where it says that on my cunt."

"Stupid, your cunt, pussy, gash, hole, or whatever it is, is round like a dish. Therefore, you must wash dishes."
