I had no idea that anything could repulse John Waters.

And of all things, it's water.

Yehbut John, the Jacuzzi prevents it from being stagnant water.

I get it. Both sides of this one...

A couple years ago my wife and I drove out to MN, and stopped to stay at a hotel in Chicago on the way. The only room they had available for us had a hot tub in it.

Looking at it I told my wife, "You know... sexy hot tub time sounds like a pretty awesome unexpected activity. On the other hand, it's in a HOTEL ROOM. You know how many people have been in that thing? At least thousands of them. A lot of those people have to be horribly nasty, doing nasty things with all their oozy biological fluids - ALL types of their yucky fluids. That doesn't sound very sexy."

Half an hour later we were farking in the hot tub anyway. Sometimes, you just gotta fark and 'aint much going to stop you. Waters might not think hot tubs are a sexy place to do it, but I bet you a shiny nickle he totally gets why we'd agree but still end up farking in one anyway.

Nothing like plunging chlorinated water into your spouse's vag.
Or, semi-treated hotel cesspool water.

On a side note, I doubt either of you have ever had a food handlers permit.

I adore John Waters, but come on.  You had Divine eat dog sh*t for the camera.

You're not kidding. When your wife decides she's ready to go, there's no stopping her, no matter how many of us beg for a break.

That's why we set up a craft services table, people. Use it!

You don't bring John Waters on unless you are ready for him to talk like John Waters.

He had a great appearance in a documentary about Roy Cohn. WWaters had attended some of the gay parties Cohn had frequented. When asked if he had ever done blow with Cohn, Waters responded "I would NEVER put my nostril on the table next to that PIG."

My nephew proposed to his wife when she was taking a bath. Their then 2yr old son gave her the ring and asked if she would marry Daddy.

That's great.  Makes it look like a low-energy pool hall/disco.  I guess they couldn't get the room with the naked writhing jizz-stained scrum going on past the censors.

I'm surprised it aired at all, but those were different times.

A jacuzzi is 90% chlorine anyway. Not going to catch much in there. We're past the 1940s, Mr. Waters.
Then again, it's apparently the 1990s if we're still discussing Ricki Lake.

CSB Time (for real, it's a cool story, or at least I think it is)

Back in the day my boyfriend got me tickets to see John Waters speak for my birthday. A friend met us there. It was held at the college I'd gone to, so before going to our seats I took us to an out of the way bathroom so we could all fuss with our hair. We left the bathroom and literally ran into John Waters. He was using the classroom next to the bathroom as his dressing room. The three of us were stunned speechless for a second. Then we gushed. My boyfriend and our friend were both really cute so John was all about it. He talked to us for a good ten minutes. At the time, he had that running joke about trying to get David Letterman to touch his mustache so without even thinking I said "can I touch your mustache?" and HE LET ME!

p.s. this was in 1990 or so, and I was struck at how much less weasel-like he was in real life vs. on tv.

Except for the location and timing, that is really cool.

John Waters didn't have to kiss Divine afterwards, though.  He has no problem filming people wading in sewage, or any other disgusting act as long as someone else is doing it.

/voyeurs are always so judgemental

This grossed me out for some reason. The 2 year old came in and while mommy was nekkid in the tub gave her a ring and asked her to marry daddy? They couldn't wait until after the bath? I know nudity to a kid isn't that big of a deal but.. eww.

When kids are two you literally take a bath WITH them.

My parents didn't but that was the 70's so times have certainly changed. Or maybe they did and I blacked it out.
