"Lying liars" was projection. The NY Times, LA Times, USA Today, and others have been shown to run news articles that were COMPLETELY fabricated. Not a biased presentation of the facts, outright lies created by someone at a desk.

Kristin? Kristin... Kristin... Is this the one that got busted at the high school party when she was 17 for drinking out on the street in a parked car?

She was a writer for Futurama? Can't possibly be ...

Yes it is. Actually got Daddy to do a couple of guest spots where he was lampooned. (As a head in a jar)

Oh, he appeared in non-head in a jar form as well.



That's him in the Duchovny-esque trench coat. You know, Al Gore invented the X-Files...

"Mean Girls" was a big hit. It opened at #1, and according to Box Office Mojo, made over $113 million worldwide, on a production budget of $17 mil and $25 mil for promotion. That doesn't even include the upcoming TV, cable and DVD sales/rental profits. It was also really good, one of the best comedies I've seen in a long time, and I'm a comedy writer myself. Don't know why some people on FR are so down on it, since it's really funny, and it had no political messages whatsoever that I can recall. We should be encouraging that.

Bombed? Huh?

"Mean Girls" pulled in $86 million here and $27 million abroad on a production budget of $17 million. It hasn't come out on video yet, of course, nor has it gone on TV.

I'd take a few "bombs" like that (especially if Lindsay Lohan was in them). I wouldn't be working anymore either, since I'd be filthy rich and retired.

"It's odd just having people you don't know reading the book," she says, laughing. "I'm, like, 'Is that allowed?' "

Yes, dear. If only people you know read the book, it will never be a best-seller.
