I’ve pontificated on the ending of The Grapes of Wrath in the past. I’ve even been criticized for calling it “creepy” because art and all that.

If you haven’t read the novel, well, (SPOILER ALERT) it ends with a grown man breastfeeding from a woman he just met. He’s literally about to starve to death. So, yeah, quite an ending.

It’s good to know that I have company in being perplexed at The Grapes of Wrath‘s ending. In fact, comedian Louis CK had a few things to say about it in one of his standup routines. I watched this on HBO last week and couldn’t help but share with you guys.

Fair warning–this short clip is definitely NSFW. That’s “not safe for work” for the less than hip.
