Penn & Teller Predicted Our Small Talk
DPD listener Lee Kasner, of Tampa, FL writes:
“I heard the small talk segment about the water menu at a fancy restaurant… and was reminded of the “Penn & Teller’s Bulls—t” episode where they open a fancy restaurant with a water menu. So is this another joke or were Penn & Teller just ahead of their time?”
Well, Lee, it’s apparently not a joke. While the Wall Street Journal’s Mary Pilon — who wrote the article that started this storm of controversy — originally left the restaurant in question unnamed, she came clean today and revealed it to be L.A.’s Bazaar.
Anyway, here’s the eerily portentous video Lee’s talking about (NOTE - adult language). The relevant bit’s about five minutes in:
“It’s a natural diuretic.” Genius.
