The Superficial: Your source for Canadian political commentary on posts about actor pedophiles.

To be fair to Mayer, do we know for certain how much of GOOP is actually written by Paltrow herself? I wouldn’t fault Mayer for not wanting to hire a big name if it turned out that some assistant was doing all the actual work.

Okay, I just figured out what “NPD” was supposed to be now. Thanks, LS!

I was wondering how long it would take before people started to notice that Sony is based in Japan, which is a stone’s throw from North Korea. (No one knows for certain that that’s the reason behind all this, but it’s a legitimate inquiry.) The fact that you have to cite Pajiba of all places for that insight tells me that it still hasn’t penetrated mass-market opinion yet.

It’s actually a little bit worse for you, because we Americans can talk Democrats and Republicans and the South and Reagan all the livelong day, and you’ll understand us completely. But most Americans can’t get through what you just wrote without looking something up along the way. Like “NPD” or “Maritimes.” (Also, we think Trudeau is the guy who writes “Doonesbury.”)

Oh, who am I kidding. Most Americans would’ve tuned out in the middle of the first sentence. “Another country’s politics? Bo-ring.”

“Why can’t I find Masters of Sex on my HBO????”

(Because it’s on Showtime.)

Just to be clear, which one other than The Sixth Sense qualifies as “good Shyamalan”? Personally, I liked The Village, but I know I’m in the minority on that. Seriously, this guy’s entire reputation is built on one film.

Is “PinkNeck” Deacon Jones under another name? Oh, wait—”working at a charity.” Never mind.

If Paris Hilton is wearing panties, it means she’s smuggling something onto an airplane and doesn’t want it to fall out.
