Jerry's Velvet Slippers

My friend Chicken sends in this nice long interview with Jerry Lewis from GQ magazine. Included: a Martin Scorsese quotation about the French loving Jerry Lewis, and you know how I usually feel about that, but from him I'll take it. Say whatever you want, Martin Scorsese! Besides, he's using it to make a larger point about... oh, who cares? He's Martin Scorsese! Jerry is interviewed wearing "red velvet slippers embroidered with those iconic faces of Comedy and Tragedy." As we have seen, Jerry loves his velvet slippers. Like previous interviewers, Amy Wallace (who I believe wrote yesterday's New York Times article about the wah-wah pedal!) also notes how organized Jerry's candy dish is.
