Video: Leonard Cohen Cuteness Claim Contested

Leonard Cohen’s Stages Of Man’s Allure To Women

While audiences have enthusiastically applauded Leonard Cohen’s latest addition to his “Tower Of Song” introduction, Six Stages Of Man’s Allure To Women, his fans, especially his female admirers, have protested his assertion that he has passed through the first five stages to arrive at Stage 6: Cute.1

Consequently, the The Leonard Cohen Corrections Agency was called in on the case.

The Leonard Cohen Corrections Agency

The Leonard Cohen Corrections Agency is a privately-funded organization dedicated to the rectification of inaccuracies promulgated by Leonard Cohen, no small task given the Canadian singer-songwriter’s admission that “I don’t want to let the facts get in the way of the truth.”2

An investigation ensued and a verdict rendered.
