Aaron Sorkin visits the Dental Hygienist

Aaron SorkinYou can always count on McSweeney's to bring the verbose, witty goods.

In the past few weeks, we've had "Johnny Knoxville's Letters to His Brother" and "Ten Reasons Why You, Audrey Tautou, Gamine French Star of Amelie, Should Date Me, Teddy Wayne." Yesterday brought a real gem, however, in the form of "Aaron Sorkin Visits a Dental Hygienist."

Giving Ken Levine's "If Aaron Sorkin wrote a show about baseball..." post a run for its money, author Jack Pendarvis unpacks the Sorkin banter tactics with an extended Poulenc reference. A sample exchange:

Jackbutt the Movie

by Michael Canfield, posted Oct 3rd 2006 11:37AM
KnoxvilleA movie theater owner in Iowa got squeamish, or had complaints or something, and changed the name of Jackass Number Two to "Jackbutt Two" on the marquee. An alert passerby snapped a photo which her cousin posted on Flickr where you can check it out.

If anything, "Jackbutt" sounds much nastier -- downright skanky even. I don't know why they didn't go with "Jackposterior" or "Jackrearend" -- too many letters maybe. There will probably never be a movie of the CBS sitcom The Class, which is fortunate, because what could they call it at this theater? "The Cl-butt" just makes no sense at all.

Steve-O God what is he doing on the red carpet?

by Bob Sassone, posted Sep 22nd 2006 1:21PM

Jackass 2I never watched Jackass when it was on television (is it still on?), so I had no interest in seeing it when it hit the big screen a few years ago. Now Jackass 2 is out, and the boys hit the red carpet the other night for the premiere. And Steve-O decided to turn the red carpet a little yellow while he was there.

Click this link to see Steve-O urinating on the red carpet. That's right, actually urinating. Reuters had the story, but they took down the pic that went with it. Luckily, Gawker has it. (Note: NSFW or anyplace else.)

The Daily Show: September 20, 2006

Jon Stewart"Thai Fighters": Over in Bangkok, Thailand, tanks traveled on their little treads to the prime minister's home and overthrew the government. It was an unexciting, bloodless coup. C'mon, Thailand! Where's the pizazz?! Asian Coup Correspondent and the newest of the new guys, Rob Riggle, used the expertise from his military background (which is real) to help explain the situation. What, is Riggle too good for a suit and a tie? Get the correspondent look together, man. And although he has the reporter-inflection down pretty good, Riggle still seems a little unsure of what he's doing. I think we'll have to wait a few weeks before we see Riggle really settle down into a character and give it his all.

SNL: Jack Black/Neil Young

by Jonathan Toomey, posted Dec 19th 2005 6:56PM

Jack BlackWell this was a pleasant surprise. After the past few mediocre episodes (save for the handful of great sketches in last week's Baldwin explosion), I wasn't expecting much from this. Sure, Jack Black is great and all, but lately I've just come to expect to be disappointed from SNL. Fortunately, the writers put together a nice set of laughs (and a couple extra guests) which is a good thing since this is the last episode we're getting until Scarlett Johansson hosts on January 14th.
