I usually roll my eyes wen somebody uses the “it’s funny ’cause it’s true” line, because sometimes The Big Lie is a Big Laugh and sometimes the truth us kinda, you know, inconvenient (TM A.Gore). Anyway, if a stopped clock can be correct twice a day (and a clock running backwards twice as often!), then Achewood is capable of occasional flashes of Absolute Truth. And this is one of them.
(Someday I should tell the story of when I met the guy who Bob Woodward said supplied John Belushi most of his drugs and got nothing but a Polaroid picture…)
