Pay attention, people!

The quote for the day (possibly week, month, and, maybe, year) courtesy of Sean Burke:

Which leads us to one possible definition of camp: Camp is the real world made acceptable for people who have neither the wits nor the courage to understand it as it is. Hence, the drama of Moses is reduced to the panting, glossy superficiality of Cecil B. Demille's The Ten Commandments, and Hollywood's notorious treadmill of casting couches becomes Harlow's Carroll Baker as she whines, "Oh, Mama, all they want is my body!"

--"Nice Girls Don't Wear Cha Cha Heels": Camp Lines from Classic Films

Because Sean, like Jarkko, is one of those people who you should listen to. (You don't necessarily have to agree, mind, but you'd damn well better think things through before you disagree)
