Paragraph of the Day

Chris Rose:

Being a first-time author and going on Oprah but being told you can't mention your book is pretty much akin to having Charlize Theron walk up real close to you, take off all her clothes, look you in the eye -- lean so close you can feel her warm breath -- and whisper in your ear: You may not touch me.

Actually, that doesn't sound too bad.

If he's smart, and he's on Oprah, he will make sure people will easily google his name and his book. In other words, mentioning his book would be best, but being on Oprah is more like saying that he will have to take one extra step to make it with Theron rather than merely be tempted by her.

Knock on wood, but I'm really glad that anon isn't commenting on this one.

Or Jonathan Franzen. Or did he finally make nice with her?

I would substitute Giselle Bundchen for Theron, but otherwise that's pretty good.

Damnit, now I have an image stuck in my head of Dr. Phil walking up real close, taking off all his clothes and looking me in the eye . . .

Yeah - but what has Charlize got but being a great actress with a perfect butt?

Oh - I get it.
