Sexual harassment, courtesy of ... John Holmes!
I couldn't possibly make this up.
I just started work for a nonprofit, and one of the people I met today, who works for an affiliate, has the same name as the late porn star.
So naturally he's been the butt of jokes in the office...my boss got a voicemail from her friend, letting her know that her John Holmes blowup doll was ready...
Turns out Mr. Holmes likes looking at asses and looking us up and down in a completely obvious sort of way. So I marched into my executive director's office tonight and said - we were talking about boundaries with constituents - "Speaking of boundaries, if John Holmes ever looks down my shirt again, I'm going to step on his foot - HARD - and pretend it was an accident!"
Which of course made the director apologize and sweat bullets...and it probably wasn't very nice of me because he isn't responsible for this guy and tends towards nervous and awkward anyway...
But still! You have to see the humor in it.
And the likelihood of a penis very unlike the John Holmes original.
