Lending DVDs... a play?

I don't know if this is for real, or not, but it made me laugh all the same:

FORT WAYNE, IN
Personal acquaintances of acclaimed playwright and filmmaker Neil LaBute reported Tuesday that they keep their behavior in check when around him. "You get in one stupid argument with your wife in front of the guy, and the next thing you know, you're an emotionally abusive misogynist in theaters nationwide," said Terrence Wydell, one of LaBute's former classmates. "With Neil, it's best to limit the conversation to the weather and current events."

LaBute is reportedly at work on The Act Of Lending, a play about a character named Terrence who borrows DVDs through intimidation and verbal cruelty, with no intention of ever returning them.


HA HA HA HA!

It's an Onion spoof, of course.

It made my day, though. Neil Labute kicks ass.
