I went to see Pineapple Express. Why is the condition of being stoned so timelessly funny? It is the awkwardness of disconnected incompetence - 'It's almost a shame to smoke it. It's like killing a unicorn... with, like, a bomb' - which, after a moment's reflection, reveals itself as more true than the grace of connected competence. The City boys should have used dope rather than cocaine.
