Believe it or not, lately I have been trying really hard to look the other way when it comes to the blog we love to hate: Queerty. At a certain point, you've got to shrug and tell yourself that they're not very smart, they're painfully sophomoric, they are almost completely lacking in self-awareness, and -- most unforgivably -- they are never going to change. To keep harping on it is to give them some sort of validity... as if they even matter.

But then there are days like today when a fellow can't help himself.

From Queerty:
Didn't the evil Carradine family have a similar idea on General Hospital?
Okay, if you're going to try to be cutesy with a pop culture reference, you have an obligation to know what the fuck you're talking about and get it right. Can we get a consensus here?

Because it's just stupid to confuse General Hospital's evil Cassadine Family with the Carradine Family, which -- to the best of my knowledge -- has not yet attempted to build a weather machine.

And then -- sigh -- from the same entry:
Colby College professor James Fleming - surprisingly, no relation to James Bond creator, Ian Fleming - remarks...
It is also quite surprising that Professor James Fleming is not related to Art Fleming, Peggy Fleming, Renee Fleming, and Victor Fleming, and that he doesn't come from Fleming, Saskatchewan. Good call on that one, Queerty!
