The least Stephanie Lucero could have done last night, while busting wide open this swingers joint in McKinney, was toss off an obligatory Swingtown reference. C'mon, CBS' hit series about swinging in the '70s airs tonight at 9:03. (Sounds interesting: "Laurie and Doug interrupt her parents' 'after party' with Brad and Sylvia.") Because, look, Stephanie, it's all about synergy. And thinking outside the Kleenex box sitting next to a bare white mattress and ... say, what in the hell is that blue thing at 2:02 into the video posted after the jump? Is that a bong? Um, I don't think so. --Robert Wilonsky
