Ever wondered what it’s like to work in a porn shop?

Well now you need wonder no more. A friend told me about this (no, seriously… my Feedster feed on improvisation turned it up). Is it for real? Yes, apart from anything else, it’s too funny and detailed to be fiction, surely. Thrill to the cast of characters (Mr Buddy, Mr Pig, Mr Creepy) and the reasons for excessive use of the hand sanitizer. Learn about Porn Trance:

This is the odd, timeless zone that people go into when studying the boxes. Lone porn renters go into it immediately and resent being pulled out. Group renters never intend to go into the Porn Trance. They start out laughing together, pointing at the boxes and reading particularly ludicrous copy out loud. They are far too hip to really be interes… and then they see an orifice that really strikes them and one by one they get sucked in and the porn section is quiet again.

I don’t have the guts to reproduce any more in my blog – so grab a macintosh and read it for yourself. Or listen to this NPR Real Audio show with a reading by Ali Davis, the author of this journal – her bit starts a 31’30”.
