So I was talking about Eliot Spitzer to my mother, and since he is not a Steeler, Pirate, or Penguin, she had no clue who he was and had no idea there was a scandal. Apparently it was not covered on ESPN or ESPN2.
At any rate, I told her he was the Governor of NY and he had been caught up in a prostitution ring, and she asked how he was involved. I told her he was a john and that these were high-priced hookers charging $1,000-5,000 and hour. What follows is her verbatim response:
He was obviously paying too much. What can you possibly do for $5,000 an hour? Surgery. Life-saving surgery performed on me is worth $5,000 an hour.
So now you all know where I got my common sense. Consider this an open thread.
