    Would you be surprised? Honestly?

    I'd be more disturbed at taking my adolescent children to see SOI and sitting through that lovely "Is She Sleeping With Him? Is He Sleeping With Her?" number that Katia and Ilia and two other skaters did a few years ago. They WOULD understand the theme. And no, I don't think it would inspire them to engage in secret partner swapping; I just think it would make them very uncomfortable to watch that with me.
    As I said, they have done inappropriate stuff in the past, and I do think it makes people uncomfortable, for good reason. And it's not too large a stretch of the imagination to think that Johnny would be pushing the boundaries as hard as he could.

    But as I said, it's academic anyway.

    Are you saying that SOI is not family friendly?!

    are you sure you are not an alien?

    In all seriousness (not an easy thing, you know ), I don't believe Johnny would do anything like that. He's never done anything on ice that would lead me to believe something like that. And I think he has plenty of sense that if he were in SOI or back in COI he would know the boundaries of what is appropriate.

    An anonymous source, who wishes to be anonymous, told me that Prancer flew the Flexjet to Nova Scotia to see the total eclipse of the sun...

    Pushing boundaries is one thing; pushing them to the degree of making obscene gestures at an audience is way beyond anything I have reason to think Johnny would do.

    For one thing, I would be if SOI didn't have some sort of contractual limits on what skaters can and can't do during shows; they'd be fools not to. And for another, I think Johnny has respect for his audiences, whoever they may be.

    Now that Prancer has publicly denied the allegation the allegation must be false.
    Who's your source for the nova scotia story?

    The source wishes to remain anonymous. Vain, but anonymous.

    You're so vain. I bet you think this song is about you.

    IMO Johnny is no more family unfriendly than Michelle's ta ta's but what he is, is potentially uncontrollable and unfiltered within the media and within the cast/crew. I think SOI decided that having Johnny on tour wasn't worth the potential Tara. Though of course I have no true idea.

    Michelle's tatas are very family friendly.

    You hit it right on here, and that's what I meant by my "costs for damage control" remark earlier. They may have just decided he is not worth the cost and risk because of his lack of control, filters, and his great enjoyment in shocking people.

    You beat me to it.

    The "gesture" thing was hyperbole. I wouldn't be TOTALLY surprised, but at any rate, that's how it was meant. Just my way of saying what others have said better: that lack of filters and so on could be highly problematic.

    Johnny is a simulacrum.

    We should ask Zizek to write an essay on Johnny for the London Review of Books.
