In this, her first non acting effort, writer/director Jamie Donahue parodies the 1950's high school educational film. Billy is a boy who has to decide what he will do with his life. His father works at the candy factory as a "fudge packer" (which is modern slang for homosexual anal sex) and "has several men under him". His mother is visited by a short, mannish woman who knows how to please the local housewives. His sister is preparing to be a good wife, and in almost every shot is moving a phallic object to her mouth.

This one is about 3 friends who happen upon a hubcap and find great entertainment value in it. One of the 3 decides it might be fun to rub and rub and furiously rub the hubcap, in hopes that it will grant him a wish. Hmm, there was a bigger theme... but the hubcap is all I can clearly remember. The quipping is solid, with pot shots taken at the boys and their families and freckles and what not. Of note: The narrator in this piece is Vic Perrin who is best known as the control voice in the classic "Outer Limits" TV show. His inclusion made the rubbing a little more horrifying.
