Joey admits he is sexually attracted to the common housefly.
“I start my day by leaving turds in the toilet. They like my product so I let them feast. I prefer pancakes but they prefer batter. It’s almost the same thing, so I don’t mind making the compromise.
“I watch the clock at work. The few flies who’ve hatched there dance around it. I long for lunch. When I eat alone at the table, crumbs tumble out of my mouth. I love the way they clean my messes.”
Joey’s flies fly all night; they will never really love him.
