Is this the first (real) screenshot quiz image with the answer in the shot?
Lionel Hutz, aka Miguel Sanchez, aka Dr. Nguyen van Thoc, was paid $8 for his 32 hours of babysitting.

He was glad to get it.

I remember one some months ago in which the word "Orlando" could be read in a painting's signature. I probably wouldn't have gotten it otherwise.

Saw her "perform" yesterday at the V Festival. What a fucking mess. She was half an hour late getting onto the stage, and kept her band waiting for almost 10 minutes before she actually wandered onto the stage. What followed can only be described as a total shambles. Slurring the words, out of time, wandering around the stage picking up stuff, fidgeting and generally making a pigs ear of everything.
Statler: Well, how do you like the film?
Waldorf: I've seen detergents leave a better film than this.

IMDb wrote:Palin Approves Of Fey's Impersonation

Vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin was left stunned by Tina Fey's impersonation of her on Saturday Night Live this weekend - because the politician once went to a party dressed as the comedienne.

Fey opened the show on Saturday dressed as Palin, in a sketch alongside co-star Amy Poehler as Hillary Clinton.

Republican Palin was watching from home - and has since sent her approval.

Her spokesperson Tracey Schmitt says, "She thought it was quite funny, particularly because she once dressed up as Tina Fey for Halloween."

Ouch. Course, he doesn't even do that much. Phoning it in would actually be a step-up for Dellums.

I'm going to see The Feeling on Sunday at the Dome in Doncaster and bought the tickets months ago. They finally arrived today, and I got all excited because usually when tickets are posted out late they are very pretty and something nice to keep. Dear me. My three-year-old niece could have done better than whichever muppet made these. Boring white with just the basic info printed on them. No colour, no pictures, not even a bloody hologram.

A true example of designers phoning it in. Pah!
