Let's Call a Spade a Spade

The NYT today runs a six pager on celubutante news. Five paras from the top comes this gem:
This is how it works in the new world of round-the-clock gossip, where even a B-list celebrity’s tangle with the law can be spun into easy money, feeding the public’s seemingly bottomless appetite for dirt about the famous.
By public, in this realm, the NYT means women and gay men.

OAGs* can be blamed for a lot, but for Pete's sake, please leave us out of this.


I don't necessarily recommend plowing through this miasmatic mess, but should you take that risk, this comes on page four, without a hint of irony:
Mr. Gosselin, an information technology specialist before he and his wife at the time became reality stars with their large brood, met Mr. Lohan in 2009 and lamented that he was struggling to land lucrative interviews, according to depositions shared with The Times on the condition that their source not be disclosed.
OAG := Ordinary Average Guy; not to be confused with AOG.
