Wow, you have balls,” proclaims Dr. Sorenson. “I do,” responds Lee as he barges through the door launching into his new sales pitch, which is ASTONISHING. Essentially, Lee’s pitch to Dr. Sorenson is that as an extremely ugly woman, Lee will NEVER be out on a date and therefore has all the time in the world to devote time to all his asthma medication needs. “I’ll be home tongue kissing my dog,” Lee explains, further solidifying that the best customer service always comes from disgusting, lonely women. Needless to say, Dr. Sorenson is SOLD! Then Gloria Steinem comes out and attacks a cougar with her bare hands. (This did not happen, but it should have.)
-Jake Fogelnest’s recap of “Work It” on Vulture. Because Jake knows that the best way to explain something is to simply show, not tell.
I’m going to go ahead & put on my red bra & tell my boss I have to go home. And I’ll get that approval because I’ll wear a red bra & WORK my feminine ways to get what I want. And I won’t get fired because my boss knows that I’m an ugly woman so I have all the time in the world to do work at every other minute of my life.
Actually, what I’m really going to do is go find a big, deep pit that I can throw the premise of this show & all its anti-woman bullshit in, light it on fire, dance around it while I perform a rain dance to wash away the sadness & throw myself into the pit to die.
