Adam Sandler tells David Letterman that he has a transgender housekeeper to have "another penis in the house." Sigh.

I'm fairly sure there's only one dick in that household.

I wouldn't touch that stupid line with a six-inch pole.

Ya know folks, I totally understand that Adam Sandler's unique brand of humor IS an "acquired taste" (so to speak), but his schtick often makes ME laugh out loud, and as a trans-woman with a show business background and an atypically "thick skin", I've gotta admit (even at the risk of drawing a heaping ration of self-righteous reactionary rebuke?), he had me, but then he lost me.

I was okay with the beginning of that bit about the all-female household (giving trans-women legit work is a good thing, right?) right up until the repeated misuse of personal pronouns (?), and then I was REALLY disappointed by the thinly-veiled homophobia illustrated by the Yankees "punchline" (???)about "nice lips".

Actually, in this continuing jobless economy, with homelessness on the rise for MANY, MANY of us, I was far more put off by his smug remark about being "very wealthy" (DUH!). One could only hope he's paying his (fictional) "housekeeper" proportionately, eh?

Oh well, time to resume the suffering here in the relatively trans-friendly tundra of Chicago, where the temps are hovering in the single digits.

Thanks for listening.

perhaps his transgendered housekeeper is ftm, just sayin'


Interesting speculation, but based on my own experience with trans-guys, highly unlikely.

Besides, Adam proved (once again) that his thought-process just isn't that deep.

(BTW: NICE one, Kathy!)
