I don't talk much about pop culture -- and for good reason. A word here and a word there is about all anybody can take of it. Today, I'm breaking my own rule and talking about ... pop culture. Just because I feel like it. And maybe because I have a few post-moon heebie-jeebies. Britney Spears, as I'm sure you've heard by now, lost custody of her kids to her ex, Kevin Federline. In a nutshell, what we have here is an evolutionary throwback winning something by default from a woman who has descended into trashdom. Nobody wins, least of all the children. I feel for those kids.
Next stop for Britney: Tag-team wrestling with Tanya Harding. Or Roller Derby.
David Letterman hurt Paris Hilton's feelings by asking her about her jail stay instead of her new perfume. Paris finally expressed her displeasure, saying she was sad she had come on the show. Boo-hoo. Letterman then offered to buy her a parakeet to make it up to her. No word on whether she took him up on it.
I propose nominating Paris as our next ambassador to Iran. She'd likely be thrown into a real jail the first day. That might strike a little fear into her fluffy little heart.
Actress Michelle Rodriguez, late of "Lost," is in trouble again for violating her probation arising from a drunken driving conviction. She failed to complete her community service and did not follow a court ordered alcohol education program.
In court last Friday, she submitted a document stating she performed community service on September 25, 2006, but later admitted she was actually in New York that day. Probation violation and lying -- another whopping case of over-inflated sense of entitlement, I'd say.
Why not send the rough and tumble Michelle to Iraq to kick some ass and get this war finished up?
At least none of the aforementioned shot someone in the face and got sent home by a wussed-out jury.
This isn't pop culture, but it's freakin' weird. Remember that last remaining NFH of mine, the upstairs girlfriend of the recently departed downstairs NFH? Come to find out, she wasn't actually finally divorced from her husband and he spent the week after her boyfriend moved out with her. She's now moved back in with the BF, and we're all wondering if the husband moved in with them as well. I don't think I like living in Peyton Place.
Okay, so I'm sick of pop culture and trash stats now. How about we look at some Words Gone Wild instead and let the TWISTED LINGUISTICS jury deal with them?

I defined the first one. The rest, we'll just look at and moan over.
And then we see:
good kama - Well, this one hardly requires definition. Carry on!
degredation - Loss of accreditation because of handing out bogus degrees.
in the mist of things - All wet.
And the current line-up from the "editor" person. I'm not kidding, if this person doesn't stop the "editor" plugging, I'm going to print the name and Web site. This is beyond ridiculous.
