Now, I’m sure as hell no CNN copy-editor, but it is my deeply held belief that this particular phrase should read: “Britney Spears’ melon out-hypes Elvis Presley’s.” Rather than “Britney Spear’s melon out hypes Elvis Presley’s.” So, you know, not just one major grammatical misstep in seven words, but two. Although I suppose it is possible that someone working at CNN actually thinks her name is Britney Spear. I think the clear lesson here is that bloggers should not be taken seriously.
Anywho, the article linked below that catastrophe is pretty interesting. Late Late Show host Craig Ferguson has opted not to make fun of Britney for at least one night. “For me, comedy should have a certain amount of joy in it,” he said. “It should be about attacking the powerful — the politicians, the Trumps, the blowhards — going after them. We shouldn’t be attacking the vulnerable … Now I’m not saying Britney is alcoholic, I don’t know what she is — alcoholic or not — but she clearly needs help.”
