Happy Birthday Divine.
Today marks the birth of Divine, the transvestite actor famous for being a poster child for bad taste cinema. Back when the diva was in high school, he befriended director John Waters, and became Waters’ accomplice in making uber gross and uber taboo cult films of the 70s. Of said films he is best known for his star role in Pink Flamingos, where he stars as Babs Johsnon, the “Filthiest person alive.”
With the tagline “An Exercise in Poor Taste,” Pink Flamingos is known to be one of the sickest films ever made. This movie has it all: chicks with dicks, nazis, cannibalism, murder, chicken loving, egg eating, voyeurism, fellatio, black market adoption rings, fecal feasts, and singing assholes (and I don’t mean that metaphorically).
Truly, I’m at a loss for words on what to post about this film, as there are so many things fucked up about it. ^_^
“Now, Mama, that’s just egg paranoia. I think you’re being very silly. There will always be chickens…….Chickens are plentiful, Mama. The world will never be without chickens.”
