WTF, Joaquin?

Okay, we already know that Joaquin Phoenix has difficulty spelling his own name sometimes, but is he really this retarded?

Bye! Good? Jesus. This is in reference to his announcement that he's quitting acting to focus on music. I sincerely hope he's just gonna be playing music and not writing any lyrics...

And on the topic of actors who are also musicians, here's an instance not of bad grammar, but of poor phrasing...

Seriously? Yuck. I get the pun, but it's gross.

And speaking of gross, remember that really anal discussion a few of us were having in the comments section of this post from a few days ago? I've found out from my lovely little stat-counting service that apparently now people who Google the keywords "anal blogspot" are finding and clicking on this blog because, you know, we talk about all sorts of anal stuff on here, being the anal grammarians that we are... *headdesk* (And yes, I know, saying the word "anal" four--now five!--times in this paragraph is not going to make the "anal blogspot" searchers go away. I know. But it's kinda funny, so of course it had to be said!)

He probably wrote it from his left to his right but from our point of view it's.. the wrong way around!

Well, it's dumb but easy to see how he did it. When you turn your fists around to look at them yourself, it reads Good Bye! He must have written it himself not realizing the mirror image and reverse wording would appear.

OMG - I wish I had a job where I could write creative titles like that! Then again, I wish I had a job where I could write...instead of working in civil servantry.

You would not believe the kind of google searches that lead to my blog - like "slutty redhead next door" - I really have no idea how they end up at my blog ;)

Hi, Lil! :) Yeah, that sounds about right, which leads me to ask this question again...is he really THAT retarded? (This kills me because I loved him in *Walk the Line*, and I really don't want to believe he's this much of an idiot...)

Hi, EG! :) Yeah, definitely easy to see how he did it, but doesn't he have handlers around him to prevent him from making these stupid sorts of mistakes in public? Sigh.

Hi, Erika! :) Well, at my "real" job I can't write creative headlines like this, but here? Anything goes! And I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one whose site gets found by searchers using really...interesting...keywords...

Hahaha - thats awesome. Way to go Neo...He really is 'The One' I guess. And its always good to know you are getting more hits off of the word anal..now you can add 'pap smear'to the list of identifying search kwy words as well haha.

Jeff said...

Wow, I'm proud to have been a part of the "anal blogspot" phenomenon.

Also, happy that I can now travel internationally without embarrassment about being from America.

Haha! Your mother must be SO proud, Jeff! :)
