Irony!

I’m re-watching Preaching to the Perverted right now. I must have seen it at least five times — it’s one of my favourite movies — but I just noticed a clever irony. Most of the plot involves the efforts of a British MP to shut down a London fetish club. In one of the first scenes there’s a tabloid newspaper headline that says “When will porno sickos like Tanya Cheex be bound and gagged?”

Well, I though it was funny, anyway. I’m surprised it took me that long to pick up on.
