Please Just Accept That I Had to Do This

I'm sorry. I couldn't take it anymore.

Why does Ted Casablanca have a job? Why does it involve "writing" things? Wasn't Morse code invented to prevent just such a catastrophe? Why do I ever visit E! Online when, deep down, I know better?

I swear that Jennifer's chin is growing. Every time I see a picture of her it's just a little bit larger. Eventually she'll be equipped to replace Jay Leno.

She's one of those I thought looked better back when she had a few extra pounds on her. Witness.

More fat = fuller face = less chin.

Seriously, Ilyka, next time you need to give us a nipple alert before we go on clicking links you make. Because DAMN.

I think I'm blind.

And I'm not even a breast person!

Hey, I didn't think I had to warn the chick who's been to a sex club about NIPPLES. :P

Though, Jen should be careful. Somebody could put an eye out with one of those things.

Okay, so I consider myself a fairly literate person. So I went over to said column and read said columnist, and I was wondering: Was he using English or some other language to express himself? Because I had to read each sentence at least twice.

WTF happened to gossip rags? Who talks like that? Who WRITES like that?

I think that style is from Will & Grace, Meryl. They tell me its supposed to be funny.

That "style" was predicted (and mocked) by a sketch on a 1993 Saturday Night Live episode, for crying out loud (it's "The Road to Self Improvement," an infomercial by "Don Lapre," who promises to teach you how to "abbrev your words" in order to same time). That ought to be enough to discourage anyone from actually using it in earnest.

"Vacay," in particular, makes me spit nails. I feel dirty and depressed just typing it.

I didn't read the article. I couldn't, but now I'm curious.

But fair warning: the first time I see the "word" galpal I'm out of there.
