So I'm over at Bill & Leslie's place, and Leslie and I are watching tv, waiting for Jon and Bill to come back from wherever they are. Beavis & Butthead come on Comedy Central. It's like the South Park movie, but it's B&B in it. They're trapped in some kind of weird "Easy Rider" film, traveling to New Orleans, fighting cops. They see a man get lynched and refer to him as a nigger. Later, they go to England, and sit outside a church on the lawn in the graveyard, and Beavis says, "You know what, dude, I think that nigger was us." (Cut to footage of the lynching as he continues.) "I think society takes guys like you and me and beats us down, because they're afraid that we, in all of our glorified stupidity, represent a threat to their way of life. Man, what did we ever do to them?" Then, just as I realized I was watching B&B crossed with South Park crossed with "Waking Life," I woke up from the dream. And my throat hurt like a bitch, too, because I'd been saying all of Beavis's lines out loud. (Footnote: During the movie, a commercial came on. Four people in orange prison jumpsuits were trapped on a steep stairwell. It was a clip from some movie. The announcer said "Al Pacino leads by example," and the man on top stood up, even though his pants had somehow fallen down around his ankles, and stumbled down the stairs, and the rest followed. Why the fuck I have dreams like this, I don't know.)
