And, in this case at least, thank God for that
One of the covers of the TIFF 40 Festival Style magazine has Christopher Plummer, 85, in a shirt and woolly sportsjacket, all covered up. On the back cover is the British model- actress Cara Delevingne, 23, entirely naked beneath a black dress thrown open and almost revealing her pubic mound…. You couldn’t find a better symbol of the film industry chasm between men and women.

Yves Saint Laurent makes a good lipstick and I buy it.  Like tampons, lipstick is sold via its attendant gear and the YSL tube is placed to look as though it’s about to be inserted where it shouldn’t be.

Justifying immature, questionable and sometimes downright idiotic behaviour by prefacing it with an idiotic statement doesn’t make it any less immature, questionable or idiotic.
