It Reads Funnier When Said With A Twang

As much as I've been tempted to weigh in on the Mel Gibson fracas of the last couple of days, my friends at Donutbuzz have that subject well covered, and nicely articulated. You should give it a read.

So, I'm relegated to keeping it lite.

Owen Wilson's response to Steely Dan's goofy complaint that You, Me and Dupree was a rip-off of their song Cousin Dupree was just plain brilliant. And, as funny as anything Wilson has spoken since his part in Meet The Parents. His statement read, in part:


"I have never heard the song 'Cousin Dupree' and I don't even know who this gentleman, Mr. Steely Dan, is. I hope this helps to clear things up and I can get back to concentrating on my new movie, HEY 19. "

Classic.
