M. Night Shyamalan's "The Penis"
thePenis.jpg

I don't know why advertisers risk putting up posters in the subway stations here in Manhattan. It's a blank canvas for shenanigans. There will inevitably be the smarty pants with a Sharpie scribbling devil horns and a Hitler mustache on the guy advertising free syphilis tests at the downtown clinic. It's going to happen.

Occasionally vandalism borders on art. Such as this gem that was photographed in the 14th Street station recently. I am sure the kid that did it is a legend among his peers in his New Jersey high school.

For M. Night's "The Penis," I have no interest in learning what the twist ending is at the end of the film.

Quite why I'm laughing so hard at such a juvenile prank, I have no idea.

Yeah, me too. It's sophomoric, lowbrow and cheap.

In short, hilarious.

Oh, I thought it said "The Pennies" and I said, "Finally, what I've been waiting for my entire fanboy life: an M. Night Shyamalan-directed prequel to the Steve Martin remake of "Pennies from Heaven!"

I was imagining a cross between Butch and Sundance: The Early Years and Heaven's Gate, but a musical set in 1932. The twist at the end is that William Katt's career is actually dead.

The Pennies joke was the funniest thing I've read this week.

mwaaa haa haa haa haa!

He said penis.

Hilarious! Now back to my quilting bee, hopefully no one caught me laughing.

"What a twist! ARGH!"

Damn, I'm slow.

Took me a while to recall that M. Night Shyamalan's (get an easier to type name btw!) movies all have that signature 'twist'.

Maybe it's about a world where Amish folk with ESP have detachable penises. But with a twist.

You need to go see it and tell me how it is!

Good to have you on board, E.

well, i thought the poster was pretty apt; M. Night is a dick...

We here in America are getting hard up for good entertainment.

Trailwaze, unfortunately this is the closest Shyamalan is going to come to solving that problem in the near future, according to the reviews I've read.

said Scaramouch on June 6, 2008 11:26 AM.

Hmmm... Our choices would seem to be controlled by people who have too many focus groups and not enough balls. I take great pleasure in voting with my feet.

said Trailwaze on June 6, 2008 11:45 AM.

Compared to Lady in the Water, M. Night's The Penis may seem like The Maltese Falcon.

You can only go up from there. I think.

said Johnny Wright on June 6, 2008 11:56 AM.

Yeah, that one was all wet. :-)

said Trailwaze on June 6, 2008 12:13 PM.

My favorite sophomoric vandalism of advertising in the NYC subways was a sign for "Hardcastle & McCormick". From the mouth of a big photo of Brian Keith was a comic "dialog balloon" that said "I fucked Mr French."

Simple - to the point - hilarious

Those kids with the spray paint ... God love 'em.

said Johnny Wright on June 8, 2008 11:58 AM.

Must not have been the same guys valet. Think about it....Hardcastle & McCormick. What nasty porn fraise could one make with that?

I will leave the forum open to all dirty minds to ponder the greatness.

said Trailwaze on June 8, 2008 9:49 PM.

The movie Brokeback Mountain should have been.
