“Vagina Monologues” Quip From Mayor Ed Lee Jolts David Chiu's Wedding Guests

A rather ribald story it is!

Whatever job Mayor Ed Lee has lined up after his time in City Hall's Room 200 grinds to a halt, it likely won't involve public speaking.

San Francisco's incredibly lifelike mayor has a tendency to say odd things when the words aren't written down — as some 300 or more guests at Supervisor David Chiu's Friday wedding reception can attest to.

In an event at 1 Ferry Plaza, the mayor left the crowd dumbfounded when he quipped that Chiu, now a married man, “won't have to participate in 'The Vagina Dialogues'” anymore.

This was confusing and awkward on so many levels. First of all, the play Lee is referencing is called The Vagina Monologues.

Lee was making an inside joke here — but only around three people in the entire room got it.

And it wasn't all that funny.

Also: Lee brought up vaginas at a wedding reception.
