Just when you thought you knew everything about Rachel Maddow, Vanity Fair's George Wayne (pictured at left) comes along to ask the important questions.
GW: Anyway, Miss "Cable Queen," as Vogue calls you, do you suffer from any paraphilia?
GW: Listen to this saucy pedant. Paraphilia is having a rare erotic fetish. Perhaps you may indulge in eproctophilia?
GW: Darling! Eproctophiliacs are those sexually turned on by farts and farting!
RM: That word actually exists?
GW: It is the current rage of Mayfair high society in jolly, kinky London....
GW: By the way, before your Peacock Network makeover, didn't you have a dyke-stache?
RM: A what?
GW: Facial hair over your lip--a dyke-stache.
RM: I never had any facial hair in my life.
GW: Thank you for that clarification, darling. And thank you for such a wonderful meeting!

Wayne, a celebrity journalist known for his probing, personal questions, is perhaps better known in media circles for going MIA in Russia in 2004 following a press junket. Vanity Fair took his name off the magazine's masthead "in a fit of pique" following his disappearance (via Lexis-Nexis).
