Clever Bon Mots This Week

The NYT is subtle and almost Colbertian: Surge Seen in Number of Homeless Veterans.

My contribution is an homage to Variety: Ro-Ro A No-Go For MSNBC-Oh. OK, I thought it was funny.

DListed pays tribute to Janis: “Oh Lord, won’t you buy Britney a clue, she’s already got a Mercedes-Benz.”

(On that last note, I have a confession: Of all the stupid shit I’ve seen celebrities do over the past few months, Britney Spears’ new car pisses me off more than anything else. I’ve seen people do horrible things – manslaughter, DUI, racism, general idiocy – and the impulse purchase of a $185,000 Mercedes-Benz SL65 is merely frivolous. Still, she can’t even drive very well! It’s such a bad idea! I know that being more bothered by this than by other things – hell, caring at all about any of these celebrity gaffs – is evidence I’ve got my priorities all wrong, but what can I do? I live in tabloid nation.)
