Grammatically-screwy gossip update!

It's Saturday, you're probably being delightfully lazy...now's a great time to catch up on reading up on celebrity gossip, right? MAGGIE, our lovely GODDESS OF GOSSIP, found a bunch of amusing errors in gossip-related articles...

Pete Wentz and Ashlee Simpson welcomed a baby boy into the world last week. The baby's name, Bronx Mowgli Wentz, is only slightly more fucked up than the writer's spelling of asinine.


Was this some sort of Freudian slip? Did they mean to write 41-year-old actress, or were they trying to insinuate "41? Yer [sic] old, actress!"...?



Finally, there's this one...which doesn't look so bad now that the word month just needs an s
added to it (they apparently tried to fix their mistakes here, but didn't fix them all the way). But when MAGGIE first saw it, apparently the whole structure of this phrase was screwy. And it seems that the first half of the word about was cut off, and to that, MAGGIE asks, What do you think it's like to be "out five a month along"?


Thanks so much to MAGGIE for all of these entertaining pictures!

My favorite thing about "Bronx Wentz"? Try saying it ten times fast!

"Bronx Mowgli Wentz"?

That kid is going to be beaten up every day of school for the rest of his life.

Let this be a lesson, people: don't name your kids based on your left-over Scrabble letters.

That's harder than saying "rubber baby buggy bumpers" ten times fast! :)
