The Fruit Basket

If you are offended by frank, honest discussions of places men can theoretically place their testicles, best not to read any further into this article.

Okay, so, to give someone a "fruit basket" apparently means to place your scrotum on their neck. According to Kevin Smith in today's New York Post, Ben Affleck used to fruit basket him on the set of Jersey Girl.

Smith explains: "I'd be sitting in the director's chair and I'd be watching a playback, and he'd stand behind me. Every once in a while I'd feel something on my neck. I'd be like, 'What the [bleep] was that?' And I'd turn around and he'd have his [scrotum] out and resting on my neck. I was like, 'What the [bleep] is wrong with you, dude?' What if it got out in the press that that's the kind of thing you do?' He's like, 'No one would ever [bleeping] believe you, sir.' "

Do I even need to blog this? That quote is probably enough.

My only concern with this is that Kevin Smith comes into our video store all the time, and so I'll probably have to speak with him (albeit briefly) within the next couple of weeks.

Now, am I going to be able to resist the temptation to bring up his having been fruit basketed? Or will the very thought of Affleck's nuts resting on his shoulder make me so ill, I'll be unable to provide him with any customer service at all? Only time will tell...I'll be sure to blog about it if I make an ass of myself. Or if, you know, he fruit baskets me.

Careful, or he might fruit basket you! And then you'd have to disinfect your entire head.
