-- This is getting testy. Remember girls naming guys from earlier in the week? How about the frat dudes - and other of the kind - naming girls and why they do it. As O'Brien learned from relationship educator Pat Love, women sometimes nickname their not-yet-fully-boyfriends to defer recognizing them as whole humans and thus minimize the despair if these guys disappear without warning. But according to a recently graduated member of a fraternity at Brown University—let's call him Dan—it's not about that for guys.
"We don't do it all the time," Dan explained. "But I think when we do, it's because referring to a girl by name makes her sound like your girlfriend. 'I'm hanging out with Lisa later' makes it sound much more serious than 'I'm hanging out with The Wrestler,'" he told me, adding that "The Wrestler" was a friend's consistent hookup whose last name sounded like "wrestler."
-- The cinematic Wizard of Oz prequel we've been waiting for for nearly 3/4 of a century, is a movie munchkin? Ugh, ugh, ugh. A sadly unimaginative prequel to the 1939 perennial that remains one of the few Old Hollywood films that many modern kids continue to see, this long-in-the-works effects extravaganza feels stillborn from its opening minutes and never springs to life, even with the arrival of the witches and the flying monkeys. Fatally miscast as the con man wizard, James Franco possesses none of the charm and humor necessary to carry Oz the Great and Powerful.
-- Watching porn at Starbucks is not ok. At all. I find it kind of gross that he views porn in a public place, and I don't really want to look at him looking at porn. Plus, there are only a couple of outlets, which means that if I take one of them that there's a high chance that he'll sit next to me when he arrives. I kind of want to approach him and say something like, "Um, could you put your porn away while you're at Starbucks? Thanks." Is that okay?
-- Most cereals are for kids, right? So yes, let's find the scariest clown possible and use him to advertise for cereal!
-- You wanna crack Holocaust jokes? Save them for the proper audience - if there is such a thing. I don't think an AIDS foundation is the appropriate place for such heinous jokes. Sorry Joan. "The last time a German looked this hot was when they were pushing Jews into the ovens," Rivers said of the German-born supermodel on Monday's episode of E!'s Fashion Police.
