It was almost a theme day...

... here on the blog, what with those last two posts about or partly about coined verbs. If I could revise titles -- you know there are blog rules, don't you? -- I would retitle that first post "Boy Georging."

Your Honor, I think you can see the importance of not Boy Georging my client.

Speaking of language, did you notice the way the Boy George article ended:
Later the exhausted star, who was supervised by a uniformed guard, paused for a fag break.

He said: “I am now going to go and have sex with the guard.”
He had a "fag break" and then he had sex with the guard. The British... they're an endless source of amusement, aren't they?

Hey, quit bogarting that cigarette.

Althousing the theme.

Why is Boy George still a celebrity? My God, if the guy from Flock of Seagulls got community service would that be a story? Shouldn't you have to have a hit within the last quarter decade to still justify poparatizi coverage? No, being the subject of a Behind the Music doesn't count.

The British press is obviously sexing up another story.

And is it common for gay men to have a "fag break" before sex? My smoking days are over (and I've always worked the other side of the street, so to speak) but I seem to remember the order was reversed.

Boy George - what a class act.

Given the Boy's recurrent troubles, maybe he should have been Martha Stewarted.

I don't think being "Ken Layed" is gonna work though as a descriptor. Except, you know, for Boy George.

If he was brave enough to rise above the sheep-like passivity of Hollywood and criticize the Iraq War, he would no doubt be "Dixie Chicked."

Years ago Whitney Huston burbled that she had more number one records than the Beatles. Boy George stood up for truth and justice, calling her an "ignorant cow".

For this I will always wish him well.
