At the end of a long day that more often than not involves wrestling with the demons of ignorance and the gremlins of stupidity, your mind is funky with an aftertaste of liberalism so fetid it would gag a barn fly and the last thing you want to ingest is another steaming pile of asshattery. What you need is a palate cleanser of sorts – and what better way to freshen the intellect, the heart and the spirit than with a generous scoop of Sorbet for the Mind.
One of my all-time favorite sitcoms was Frasier. In this episode, Titled “Three Days of the Condo,” Dr. Frasier Crane decides to challenge the incumbent – and utterly tyrannical – condo board president who cited him for installing a door knocker without permission and repeatedly issues citations to Frasier’s dad for using the passenger elevator to take Eddie (his pet Jack Russell Terrier) out for walks.
In this hilarious scene, Frasier makes his election pitch to fellow condo owners thinking that the latest citation involved yet another infraction of the elevator rule. What he didn’t realize is that it involved his father lounging naked in the condo jacuzzi. Hilarity ensues.
