Truth Gone Wilde


Your entertaining tidbit for the day:

The Huffington Post has a humorous little diversion posted today that reveals the real names of some well-known celebrities.

This one just about spit coffee all over my keyboard: Olivia Wilde's real name is Olivia Cockburn.

There are so many possible jokes here that I'm just not even gonna bother -- suffice it to say, the name she was born with is infinitely more appropriate.

I have no idea who this girl is but, jesus does she have great eyes.

As to her given name, I'm pretty sure that rather than a hard "K", the "ck" in her last name is pronounced, "kanye's home all alone this weekend just in case you've got a thing for middle-aged married guys and happen to be reading this Olivia."

Then again, I might be wrong.

Trouble is, she probably pronounces it co-burn. One of those names that looks better than it sounds!

It's pronounced CO-BURN...

As in singer/songwriter Bruce Cockburn, for whom the joke works better, cuz he's gay.

Yes, of course it's pronounced CO-BURN. But Jesus Christ, you just gotta screw up a good joke, don't you.

kanye said...

I'm sticking with my pronunciation.

Jennifer Anniston's last name has "ass kiss" in it. Nice.

That photo you posted with the article has no doubt caused plenty of cock-burn, as well as the release of a tsunami of jism.

It's really amazing how classy this joint has become lately.

Ahh, now that 'Sex is on Fire' song make so much more sense...
