Werner Herzog discovers that his old friend John Waters is gay

It took him 35 years

In this clip from a 2007 documentary, Werner Herzog tries to explain his worldview, which is (sort of) that he takes everything at face value. When he sees a chair, it's just a chair. And when he sees a man, it's not a gay man or a straight man--even if that man is as obviously, fantastically gay as his old friend John Waters. In more contemporary news, Herzog did a bunch of awesome voice work on this season's Metalocalypse, which you should be watching. [Hat tip to Chicagoist.]

More Great Job, Internet!
