Brad Pitt has the flu

Superficial / July 13, 2005

bpitt_flu.jpgI don’t know why, but The Associated Press is reporting that Brad Pitt checked himself into a Los Angeles hospital due to “flu-like symptoms”.

“I think he has the flu,” the spokeswoman said.

I wish I was making this up, but this is actually a story that somebody researched and wrote. You know the world is coming to an end when journalists are reporting on whether or not Brad Pitt has the flu. London bombings? Who cares. It’s all about Brad Pitt and his flu. I think it would be great if the AP reported that Angelina Jolie also had the flu, and then implied that her and Brad gave it to each other because they were so busy kissing. They could even have diagrams with drawings of Brad and Angelina and little heart shapes surrounding them. That’s professional journalism, baby.
