The word of the day: originaliness

April 21st, 2008 → 5:12 pm @ // No Comments

Headline on GQ’s May 2008 profile of Robert Downey Jr:

The Man in the Irony Mask

Headline on my profile of Stephen Colbert, which ran in the October 2007 issue of Vanity Fair:

The Man in the Irony Mask

(The GQ story, incidentally, is by Matthew Klam, one of my favorite writers and the author of Sam the Cat, a truly phenomenal collection of short stories. Thankfully, writers have nothing to do with headlines, so I can still rip on GQ for their lame-ass mimicry. Also: the head worked better on the Colbert piece. Suckers.)

    I haven’t read the article and have no intention of doing so, but I’ve never found anything Downey did to be particularly ironic.
