Twice the Jerry

You know how I have banned everyone in the world from stating the pseudo-fact and supposedly witty, barbed quip that people in France love Jerry Lewis? Today the New York Times ignores my advice again, this time on the opinions page. I won't bother to "link" to it. I will "link" to Manohla Dargis's Jerry reference. She's always good for one! Here it is. So that makes two Jerry references in today's New York Times, though one of them is the kind I don't like - an inert cliché. Plus it always seems to suggest a snickering, hidden insult to both France AND Jerry Lewis, but only succeeds in making me love both of them more.
