Billy Buttsex Yeah, me too. I totally expected him to suggest suicide as an insomnia inhibitor, because that's like, the only logical direction this could've taken.
fluffy Well, more like knowing Hitchcock's macabre sense of humor. Logic has nothing to do with it.

kingarthur Me loves the black comedy. I also enjoyed Richard Dawkin's anecdote re: Hitchcock:
Hitchcock is driving along one day and spots a young boy talking to a priest. Hitchcock stops the car, rolls his window down and yells to the boy, "Run, little boy! RUN! Fast as you can!"
And then drives away.
