Seeing as I do not have a ‘ask a question’ feature on my tumblr, I’m going to have to make up some questions to ask.
Q. Why Ham?
A. Why the fuck not?
Q. Ermmm… Ok, well why lesbians?
A. Ever since the phrase “Lesbian Ham” was uttered on the mighty boosh, I have been obsessed with the implications of this - what exactly makes a ham lesbian? I’ll come back to this one later.
Q. What do you use to create your submissions to lesbian ham?
A. Microsoft Paint obviously. You don’t expect me to go out and BUY photo and image editing software, do you? That shit is expensive. You’re getting this crap for free.
Q. Don’t you think this sort of activity promotes a negative stereotype of lesbians?
A. Well - what about a negative stereotype for ham? No. No-one gives a pity fuck for poor old ham, do they. Well, in answer to your question, the answer is no. No I do not. I believe each lesbian needs to be approached on an individual basis. And if that individual just happens to be a stereotype or a generalization, who cares. Generalisations are general. If you see what appears to be a crazy eyed junkie swaying down the street with a blood filled syringe, do you cross the road? Because that is a generalisation. And that generalization could have saved your life. No - I’m not suggesting that all lesbians are crazy eyed junkies swaying down the street with blood filled syringes, but I’m sure most of them are.
Q. Don’t you realize how offensive that statement is?
Part 2 of this interview will be posted shortly after the final episode of the prologue.
