Dream: Tim Gunn Drops the N-Bomb

(In my dream) Tim Gunn referred to two separate folks with the N word. Not in a hostile manner, just as if n*gg*r were just another perfectly acceptable word for referring to someone. The whole world was upset. In my mind I worked to conjure a sufficiently witty rejoinder around the F word. Really, Tim, you should know better!

So, we were all of us walking down a mosaic-tiled road, as if towards the city of Oz, where we expected to learn from an all-knowing wise man why it was that Tim Gunn had become a racist potty-mouth. The mosaic-tiled road began to break up in to sand dunes, finally coming to an end. I looked around the desert and saw mushroom clouds blooming behind us in a regular pattern like a planted forest. The Earth was being carpet-bombed with nuclear weapons and I briefly wondered to myself if that was possible and practical: why would you carpet-bomb a desert?

I knew the end of everything was at hand, so as the bombs drew near I wrapped my arms around my lover and smothered her fall to the ground. As the heat arrived and I woke from my dream I wasn’t sure if I was holding my sweetheart or a large sack of cat food. I think my brain was trying to plan ahead, because I often feed the cats after I wake up.

Anyway, Tim Gunn, if you ever read this, please don’t ever start to use the N word, especially if Sarah Palin gets elected president.

    I was amused — yet somewhat distressed — last night when I heard Tim use the term “old fart” to describe himself [I had DVRd an episode of “Project Runway” and was catching up]. To begin with, the term is SO not applicable to this man — he’s about as hip as any over-50 person I know — but to hear him stoop to such a “common” term nearly ruined my image of him as the Perfect Gentleman. So I’m glad to know that his dropping the “n-bomb was only a dream.

  • Frogprof, thank you for your comment. It caused me to laugh out loud! :)
