Okay I'm back from church (see below), they said there's nothing they can do. Anyway, Richard Gere recently said that he used the photographs of Joel Peter Witkin to weed out potential girlfriends. Joel's photos feature people naked with body parts missing and stuff. Sick shit, you know like my family portraits.
Richard said, "It clearly was a litmus test about the women who came into my apartment – how they related to this work. If they didn't like it or they threw up, or whatever, they definitely were not going to be someone in my life."
"My wife Carey actually kind of liked it – until we got married, of course, and then she said, 'Get it out of the house.'"
I'm guessing he introduced the gerbil stuff much later. That's always a sign if a woman loves you. If she's ok with shit covered rodents coming out of your ass then she must be in it to win it.
