— Who is Mr. Butts?
The one who carries the signifier on top of his head.
The comedy of the law is going to be played out. In a word, Mr. Butts' desire taking the paths traced out by law is demonstrating, once again, that the norm of desire and the law are one and the same.
What was before was, properly speaking, his fault. He is mourning. He was buckling under the weight of his burden. He was exceedingly sinful.
