Long time ago a Brit told me a joke, which wasn’t particularly refined but it is very much to the point now in the situation with Harvey Weinstein.
The joke is as follows.
Once upon a time there was a princess who one day stopped going to the toilet for unknown reasons. The best doctors in the kingdom were unable to handle such a severe case of constipation.
But there was a lad amongst the servants who knew a certain Private Smith whom everybody treated like shit. So he suggested putting the man underneath some structure with a hole above – and promised to cure the princess.
When the structure was built, the lad asked the princess to squat over the hole and told her: “Shit on Private Smith!”
She did – and was cured.
When Gwyneth Paltrow was 22, Weinstein placed his hands on her and suggested they head to the bedroom for massages, she said. She refused. pic.twitter.com/u2LhfaNumv
