Everything about this is horrifying. The wink. The sexism. The classism.

You walk down the street and see Mick Lynch. Bump into someone, it’s Mick Lynch. Feel a bit odd. Jump on a bus. The driver is Mick Lynch. The passengers are all Mick Lynch. You dive off. Hail a cab. The driver is Mick Lynch. You run home. Open the fridge. Mick stares back at you.
