"Today’s topic is something near and dear to my heart: wrestling finishing moves. I’ve always loved pro wrestling. I know it’s fake, I know it’s white trash, I know it’s sophomoric entertainment; I don’t care. What is so frequently overlooked by the intellectual elite is that once you get past the excessive violence and blatant homoeroticism, the story lines that wrestling follow are for the most part based on classical archetypes. I figure that you’re never going to get the white trashers of this country to read the Odyssey or Oedipus Rex, but you could probably get them to watch derived stories play out in the ring. I admit that the wrestlers probably never know the classic stories that their story lines reference, but I’m still in favor of anything that sneakily gives culture to the unwashed masses.
