Jizz Face (I was 30-years old)

by Gavin McInnes

“I had recently moved to New York and was hanging out with a bunch of kids who were later dubbed “Warhol’s Children” by New York Magazine. One of the brightest talents in the group was a documentary photographer named Ryan McGinley who didn’t act gay but was gay. We were all sitting around drinking beer and doing drugs at some pretty girl’s apartment when Ryan came bounding out of the bathroom with cum all over his face. He was so covered he looked like the guy that had spent the past three years in solitary confinement holding it in. I’d never seen a male with jizz on his face before.

Cum, 1999.

He said, “Hey guys, are we going to be going out later or do you just want to hang out here for a while?” The fact that he was being so nonchalant about the kind of thing that would give most of us life nightmares, made me slide forward off the couch like I was on a broken chairlift without a safety bar. As Ryan stood there dripping with blobs, I sat there dying on all fours only occasionally looking up to confirm what I was seeing was real.

He’d smile and give a knowing nod that said, “Yep, it’s cum” and my head would go back to the floor to continue the Cry Laugh. It was like seeing your dad with tits or your mom with a beard. I had no file for it in my brain. Which brings me to why the gag was so successful: If you are going to scare someone by doing something like leaping out from behind a door, don’t say “Boo.” It’s way more confusing to come stampeding towards the person with some serious question about taxes or where you left your socks. Boo is already filed under “S” for “Someone’s trying to scare you.” Random banter has no file and it gives the joke that secondary umph of confusing impact that really draws out, what is essentially shock humor.

UPDATE:
 
I have since learned that it was hand soap not semen on his face and this blow was so crushing I’ve decided to ruin it for you too.”
