Derranged minds think alike, I guess – I started writing something about the Virginia Department of Health’s fotonovilla on older-man-younger-women relationships[pdf] earlier this morning and got distracted. Now I see Tom has already mentioned it in passing. In fairness to the VADOH, however, it’s named “Thanks Papi” because the protagonist’s dad steps up to the plate when he finds out about his daughter being propositioned by the not-so-young man. He gives him a talking to, then provides some loving advice for his daughter. It closes with her saying to him “It’s going to be hard finding a man who loves me as much as you do.”
Which, I acknowledge, the more obnoxious among us (guilty!) will find snicker-worthy in and of itself. I predict it’ll take no longer than Friday before we see an incest-themed joke retooling of the book, probably from the folks who brought us this gem and making some requisite West Virginia jokes.
