Eraserhead 2: The Geithnering

Following a suggestion from his old friend Keith, Fosco offers for your consideration: Jack Nance in David Lynch's Eraserhead and Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner.

Spooky, huh? I'd make a joke about something from the plot of Eraserhead, but

  1. I have little confidence that many of my readers have seen it.
  2. I don't really remember much about it myself.
To the best of my recollection, I think there was some dancing involved. And some horrible worm creatures. Actually, the film is probably not too much different from recent meetings at the Treasury.

Stanley Kubrick would hold private screenings of Eraserhead for his friends at his English estate.

@Jeremy: Oh, I had forgotten about the lady behind the radiator!

@Prof. Batty: To be a fly on that wall...
