Heard in a dance accompaniment
While at the Brooklyn Museum's celebration of their new facade, I attended a dance performance. The second piece was against a backdop of light projected from an 8mm projector, with sound provided by a series of snippets of sound from movies. I heard the line (from some film noir, no doubt), "A dame with a rod is like a guy with a knitting needle" and thought it was hysterical. Not true these days (there are plenty of guys who knit, and I just read an article in the Times a couple of weeks ago about a Manhattan women's shooting club), but still really a funny sentiment.
