Actually, I do read the titles, and I enjoy them every time because I have a soft spot for alliteration... I just don't understand how you come up with (presumably) 553 differnt ones since, you know, the eligible letters are rather limited.

Titles are fun. A nice addition to the numeration.

Hi Auntie Vera and Conscience:

I do agree that Kobe Bryant from the Lakers is a poor loser and also have a very bad attitude. He gets very upset when a ref gives him a technical foul. He thinks that he is such a big shot. I can not stand him as a basketball player. Kobe always had a dirty mouth and the fine should have been much more. I also wanted to express that the Olive Garden also had a similar incident serving a Tropical Sangria was accidentally served to a child. A message from Dave Pickens- President from Olive Garden article can be found on Facebook- Olive Garden. The only soap opera that I love to watch is The Young And The Restless. Thank You for playing the song Children Will Listen sung by Barbra Streisand. Take Care! From The Good Humor Penquin, Michael Fein.

Why are we so sure the clue meant Mississippi? Couldn't it just as well be Missouri? Wouldn't that fit the "Let's Misbehave"-clue?

I hadn't heard about this Kobe-mishegas until you mentioned it on your show. I totally agree with what you said, and I think the argument that it was "in the heat of the moment" and "the first thing that came to [his] mind" even worse because it is revealing of his actual views. Obviously, when in a moment when he his uncontrolled and without any advisers speaking in his ear about what the reaction and aftermath would be.
I for one am pretty sure that, to follow your analogy which is totally valid IMO, the "N-word" wouldn't cross my mouth in the heat of N-y moment, as an insult. (unless I quote a certain dried fig of course...)
What did my gal Joy say about this on The View?

I am not surprised Whoopie stood up for him - she did the same for M. Vick when he was caught running dog fights from his house. She made some lame excuse about it being part of his "culture". That was just bullshit to me for pretty much the reasons you mentioned in the show. To some, using the N word is "cultural", that in no way makes it acceptable.

On a side-note, I am an avid gaymer, and would just be tickled to hear my Auntie voicing some characters in a game!

Didn't Whoopi also stand up for Mel Gibson? and Charlie Sheen?
