The living will envy the dead.

Only Hollywood thinks this is a good idea:

Mitch Albom and Adam Sandler, working as one: The untitled project is a comedy with emotional elements set in the world of baseball. I’m booking Kevorkian for release day minus one.

(Thanks — of a sort — to Jason T., for pointing this out.)

    I saw something about this yesterday and choked on my coffee. Maybe Adam Sandler will sing in it, making it perfect.

    ewwwww. a match made in … well, you know.

    my 16- and 13-year-old sons can’t understand why i refuse to let adam sandler movies air under my roof, whether i’m in the room or not. it baffles me, as they’re wise beyond their years in so many other areas. i’m hoping it’s just a phase.

    Yay! deb! A true editor! You know when to cut off the hyphens! And when to use them. And when to leave them hanging University of Chicago style. You couldn’t teach this to the current generation. It’s a lost art.

    My current gig requires slashes—e.g., 35 y/o—because it’s largely medical and the nurses and docs who get indocttrinated into this rarefied style never crack a book unless it’s about anatomy and they happen to have a prurient interest in it.

    Actually, Adam Sandler did an admirable job covering “Werewolves” on that tribute album.

    However, I spewed my ‘herbata’ over the monitor, literally, when I read the title. I thank you Nance, and my office mates here in Poland thank you as well. Now to try to figure out the Polish word for ‘Windex’.

    Couldn’t agree more about Sandler. He’s just so creepily offensive. Ashley, it’s simple. In Poland Windex is spelled “Xedniw”. And Alex, I must confess to having had a prurient interest in certain aspects of anatomy from time to time. What’s wrong with that?

    Nance, I’m happy to be of help. If I can motivate someone to say something rude, my life has not been lived in vain.

    Besides, I think it’s a public service to warn people about this upcoming catastrophe. Like a tornado siren or the Emergency Broadcasting System.

    Build your anti-maudlin-fart-joke bunker now! Avoid the rush!
