John Waters Talks New Book "Carsick" With Craig Ferguson

The famously twisted film director talked about his adventures in hitchiking across the country on The Late Late Show last night.

The very charming Late Late Show host Craig Ferguson chatted with the "King of Bad Taste" John Waters about his hitchhiking adventure from Baltimore to San Francisco, as chronicled in his latest book, Carsick: John Waters Hitchhikes Across America. In this interview, he talked about the types of people who picked him up—a rock band (Here We Go Magic), a real-life coal miner, a police officer, a farmer, and more. Damn, to be a fly on those car walls...

Waters is known best for his cult/trash films like Pink Flamingos, bigger hits like Hairspray and Cry-Baby, and for his signature pencil-thin mustache. He is also responsible for educating the world on some underground fetishes and sexual acts, such as shrimping, coprophagia, and sex with a bloody dead chicken (is there even a term for this?). In another clip with Ferguson, he casually explains the meaning of gerontophilia (the sexual preference for the elderly) and feederism (a sexual fetish that involves feeding and weight gain encouragement). You learn something new everyday.
