The Pelican Joke

God, Rufus Wainwright loves himself. ‘I know I’m wonderful, I really am’, as he was telling an interviewer recently. Personally I think he looks like Nick Cave rearranged by Will Young, but we’ll let that pass. His heroic self-love will provide a much-needed opportunity for me to get ‘the pelican joke’ off my chest. ‘If The Flintstones has taught us anything’, as Homer Simpson said, ‘it’s that pelicans can be used as cement mixers.’ Wait, that’s not it. If Rufus Wainwright was an equally self-loving pelican what would he have in common with my gas supplier? They could both go and shove their bills up their arses.
