A last slap at Bawney Fwank

It appears self-styled equality champ and former
gay whorehouse
proprietor Barney Frank can no longer catch a break in #ThisTown. Sigh.

Not only has the documentary team that followed the Massachusetts Democrat around during his final year in Congress struggled to make ends meet on Indiegogo, now the art house theater where the trio had originally planned to stage the D.C. premiere of “Compared to What: The Improbable Journey of Barney Frank” is staggering toward a fast-approaching final bow.

Filmmaker Sheila Canavan told HOH plans to share the up-close-and-personal look at the former lawmaker with District cinephiles have been shelved pending the conclusion of the ongoing fundraising push.

She and partner Michael Chandler have raised roughly a third of the funds (around $30,000, at press time) they feel is necessary to fine-tune the silver-screen treatment of Frank’s everyday existence. [Roll Call cont]

I suspect this will be the last time Bawney, the man most responsible for the 2008 bank collapse, will grace this page.  No, not even for his obit. For those interesetd, his newly released autobiography, “Frank: A Life in Politics from the Great Society to Same-Sex Marriage” is for sale. Hurry, while they last.

What are you trying to say? That investors in the Bawney Fwank film are, um, taking it in the arse?

I wanted to market a brand of hot dogs called Barney Franks. I figured they would be popular in San Francisco if no where else.

Hmmm…that reminds us of Andrew "Dice" Clay's remark about San Francisco banning public smoking:
"You can smoke the baloney pony, but you can't light up a fuckin' Marlboro!"

Let's go for the trifecta: somebody chime in with an Anthony Wiener joke!
