I Heart Smegma


If you haven't seen the new Harold and Kumar flick, ingeniously titled Harold and Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay, then you must go out and see it. And if you don't like it, it's because you've still got some sense of decency left in you, or you're a fascist pig. And if you need an I Heart Smegma t-shirt, then look no further than this jewel. From the New York Times:

If you think the last seven years have been one long, dumb, dirty joke — or maybe if, sometimes, you just wish you could believe as much — then “Harold & Kumar Escape From Guantanamo Bay,” written and directed by Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg, just might be the perfect movie for you. That it is, quite unapologetically, far from perfect in every respect almost doesn’t matter. The simple fact that a movie exists with the title “Harold & Kumar Escape From Guantanamo Bay” is cause for hope. Or maybe for alarm. In any case, for a few laughs.
The whole movie is so wrong it's right. Here are some trailers, but I recommend not watching them so as to not spoil the movie. While it could have been more politically insightful, and not relied on such tried-and-true conventions of slapstick comedy, and not glorified weed so thoroughly... the movie still does not disappoint.

Smegma is actually the Greek word for soap. Smegma is COOL! :-)

i don't know about the whole circumcision debate. i think harold and kumar simply meant to point out that smegma is totally sweet.
