Tinkerbell and Dong Resin, Together Again?
August 19, 2004 10:45 AM   Subscribe

Worst. NewsFilter. Ever. "No details are available", but at last count, Google News had over 250 sources for the "Paris Hilton's Missing Dog" non-news story. I'm a dog lover myself, and was once broken-hearted by the loss of a chihuahua, but too few alleged journalists are treating this 'news' with even a small dose of the disrespect it genuinely deserves. Meanwhile one TV show is crowing about getting "the scoop" (but apparently not on their own website, which can't even spell Rumor). But The Daily News and USA Today connected the story to Tinkerbell's upcoming book, ghost-written by MeFi's beleved Dong "Don't Call Me 'D'" Resin, and USAToady gave the book a sidebar story. Which raises the big question: with the book's release about two weeks away, could our own Delightful Dong have been the dognapper? I've seen worse publicity stunts for a book.

In other entertainment news, remember the suitcase full of priceless Beatles memorabilia? Well, a Beatlemania expert says It's Fake. You just can't trust anybody these days.

okay, the "USAToady" was intentionally misspelled, but that should have read "MeFi's beloved Dong"...

Three cheers for the dongmeister on the book. Didn't that start as a few joke posts on his blog?

Definite publicity stunt, and a good one. Go Dong!

Wendell accidentally misspelled his deliberate misspelling, resulting in the correct spelling.

Still awaiting a formal denial from the dongster...

Notice he hasn't updated his blog since before Tinkerbell disappeared and has made only two comments here the past week?

I'm just sayin'...

trout, q: any links to that story?

I mean, you're both trustworthy, but you can't trust the media these days. And let's face it, alien Elvis-dwarves are in the news more often than pampered canine rats who write books.

And I try not to belove any unperpetuated rumons.

In other news, 'A' Level results [effectively the UK's college entrance requirements] have also been devalued.

So - if the 'Best of the Web' seems a little devalued today, you could always blame the politicians. We always do.

"...could our own Delightful Dong have been the dognapper?"

He said she was delicious.

Am I the only one strangely dispirited (but not altogether surprised) that the lost Mal Evans archive is still lost? (The Lost Mal Evans Archive sounds like a good band name, though.) Maybe that fucking Paris Hilton has it stashed away in her Ugg boots.

May dong see all the fame and fortune he deserves.

Because I would give nothing more than to hear Jay Leno say "Dong Resin."

I sincerely hope that Dong had a part in this.

A part! Haw! Oh, mercy.

To quote Bill Maher:

You can't be famous for nothing! Paris Hilton can't be in the papers anymore unless she kills someone, marries J-Lo or O.D.'s. Also, her head is too small and she has only one facial expression. I know that's not a rule but somebody had to say it.
