Tad Friend on Kevin Smith

I’m sad to say that Tad Friend’s short Talk of the Town piece on Kevin Smith doing stand-up at Carnegie Hall is only online for subscribers. The conceit is fantastic:

We’re going to substitute “Wayne Gretzky,” the hockey great whom Smith reveres, for the intimate body parts that he frequently mentions. When he discusses those body parts’ being involved in certain private activities – when he uses them as a verb – the proxy phrase will be “Walter Gretzky,” Wayne’s father, and, according to Kevin Smith, one of the great human beings.

Wayne and Walter Gretzky combine for 11 appearances in the ensuing four paragraphs. Get yours here.
