Everybody Stop Saying This Now

As you know, I always give you a "heads up" whenever Jerry Lewis is mentioned in the New York Times. Today is such a day. It's an op-ed piece with an aside about the French: they "think Jerry Lewis is funny." I am not sure why this is a clever remark or why people make it over and over and over again. It reminds me of that part in THE PRODUCERS when the guy says, "Pardon the pun," and Gene Wilder says, "What pun?" and Zero Mostel says, "Shut up, he thinks he's witty."
