I’m Not Sure I’m Reading This Right... In Fact, I Must Be Reading it Wrong, Right? Because if I’m Reading it Right, The Ramifications Are Frightening

Okay, I just read this on Gawker and because of the wording and the weird Hillary Clinton parallel I’m a little confused, well that and the fact that this can’t possibly be true, right? Ben just heard me saying Oh-my-god and he said What is it and I said I think Amy Fisher and Joey Buttafuoco are hanging out again and he said Who are Amy Fisher and Joey Buttafuoco (god bless that someone, anyone, my husband missed that chapter of embarrassment for all mankind) and I said she’s the Long Island Lolita who was sixteen and dating this gross older man who was married with a family and also he was pimping her out and then she went and shot his wife in the face but she lived and Drew Barrymore played Amy in the tv movie and Amy Fisher went to jail but then got married and had kids and learned something and wrote a book and Joey stayed married for a long time but finally got divorced and then so did Amy Fisher and it seems like now they’re canoodling and there might be a reality show about it and Ben said, Oh. I’m sorry.

Did I get that wrong? Someone, please, tell me I got it wrong. Because if I didn’t, forget Britney and Paris and Lindsay and the environment, I know now for sure that the world is at end.

Wrong.

joey got married after Mary Jo, got arrested, had a failed soft core porn career, felt irrelevant, went on daytime talk shows to apologize, then dragged his family through it all again by hangnig with Amy.

Also, Amy was 15 hence his jail time. Statutory.

I have a comic book about the Buttafuoco/Fisher dealy. It's in an easy-to-read He Said/She Said format. Ben can have it if he wants.

It's probably worth noting I bought it at a flea market in New Jersey.
