Apparently everyone on American Idol has lost the ability to second guess themselves, or to recognize how lame they are, if they ever even had that ability in the first place. From MSNBC:

Randy Jackson, a judge on the popular American Idol show, is talking to publishers about writing a book, tentatively called “What’s Up Dawg?” says a source.

Ugh. To make things worse, Simon has a book coming out, too, not-so-cleverly titled "I don't mean to be rude, but...".

I don't mean to be rude, but you guys are lame, dawg.

Holey Moley, my Coworker's Uncle is Famous
My coworker Kris's uncle recently passed away, but he was famous as a comic book writer, and even more so for adding a particularly popular phrase into the American lexicon. From New York Times:

Mr. Woolfolk did not create new characters, but said he coined one of the most famous lines in comics: Captain Marvel's exclamation "Holy Moley!" "He created that so Captain Marvel would have something to say when Captain Marvel was particularly astonished," said Joanna Martine Woolfolk, his third wife. They were divorced in 1999. Mr. Woolfolk and his second wife, Dorothy, who is deceased, had a daughter, the author Donna Woolfolk Cross, best known for her novel "Pope Joan." Ms. Cross, of Syracuse, survives him, along with a stepson, Dr. Donald Woolfolk, of Williamsburg, Va., and four granddaughters.
