I must have been somewhat delirious yesterday (from lack of sleep, no doubt), but I was inordinately amused listening to the bit on Wait Wait...Don't Tell Me! about this:

"Usher ripped off OMG from The Simpsons?"

Oh, Paula Poundstone (whom I love) cracked me up with her comment that if one night you happen to jot down the the lyrics "Honey got a booty like Pow! Pow! Pow!" (I have no idea how to transcribe that), you have to wonder, "What the hell's the matter with me?"

And, now, I can't stop singing the snippets. Ugh...but at least it makes me giggle.


Oh, geez, and the part about the Jershey Shore star's book made me laugh, too. My reaction was the exact same as the caller's (both times she avers that she has no idea). Sometimes I feel so out of touch, but I really don't want to be in touch with Jersey Shore. I'm not saying it's bad -- I've never seen any part of it -- I'm just saying I have no interest in it. (The years have presented plenty of good, bad and in-between of television programming to keep me idly busy for the rest of my life, so I don't need to be caught up on current tv offerings.)


And, finally (I promise), "butt-dialing" is apparently a term people know. I get the concept, but I've never heard anyone say "butt-dialing" before. Huh.


Overall, funny stuff. I promise it's much funnier when you listen to it rather than reading me ramble on and on about it.
