Put that in your pipe and smoke it

Since this is a family-friendly blog, I won't say too much about it; but if you're up for a well-crafted, funny piece of prose let me direct you to the latest missive from one of the best writers out there, Christopher Hitchens.

In the piece, Hitchens deconstructs the history of a form of employment that few males would refuse. And while some may find the subject matter boorish or even inappropriate, it's worth the read just to watch Hitchens on top of his game. It's so clever, intelligent and witty that even the most dubious reader can have fun with it. And I think that is part of the brilliance of Hitchens: No matter what he writes or the relative importance of the subject matter, he's obviously having an awful lot of fun.
