Dear Lord, why the hell are stupid nicknames for celebrities becoming so popular? In particular, AOL manifests my disdain thusly:

On a totally different note, we were talking about the Zodiac over here and it turns out I'm the only one who ate at enough Chinese Restaurants to recall how the thing works for me.

At first glance it's just a normal Zodiac calendar. Upon closer inspection, it tells people that they'd be good at some bizarre if not extremely shitty jobs....it's all sort of surreal. Included on the list are career recommendations for: Secret Agent, Beachcomber, hairdresser, matador, etc. Even better is the occassional grammar slip:
I don't know if that first sentence is a subtle joke telling those "Monkey-born"that they're dumb as all hell, but it did make me laugh.
