Matt, your girlfriend is a moron

As we mentioned last week, Matt Leinart is apparently dating Paris Hilton (and to our friends at HeismanPundit who claim it's just a publicity stunt, we respectfully disagree. Why on earth would a guy whose stock is sliding to begin with knowing solicit more negative press?).

Well, while we never thought of Miss Hilton as a member of Mensa, we didn't know quite how, uh, not Mensa she was. But a prime example was on display at the recent E3 video game expo in Los Angeles. Hilton was on hand to promote her new video game. Arriving late, she apologized for her tardiness then said, "I'm really excited to have my new video game, 'Diamondquest.' Thank you all for coming, and you can download the game."

Nice, sweet and to the point. Only problem was, the name of her new game isn't "Diamondquest," it's "Paris Hilton's Jewel Jam."

Oops. Nice going, Paris. And Matt, if somehow, some way, this is a publicity stunt, you should fire your PR person immediately.

whats your beef with leinert? I am sure he agress paris is an idiot. I also have a feeling that he is not dating her (if he is) for her personality.

where is the drug dealing article on ramonce taylor?

Far be it from me to be a stickler for the Queen's English but shouldn't the shirt read "YOU'RE NOT" instead of "YOUR NOT". If you are going to wear a t-shirt to make a statement at least use correct grammar. Moron Monday indeed.

Uh, T, hence the "Strunk and White" comment under the pic.

As a journalism major currently working in publications, few things send nails-on-blackboard chills up my spine quite like someone botching the "it's/its," "you're/your," or "there/their/they're" discrepancies in a public manner such as this. (Although it did spawn a funny Playboy party joke -- a guy walks into his psychiatrist's office wearing cellophane, and the shrink says, "Well, I can clearly see your nuts.")

I think it's definitely a publicity stunt that he is 'dating' her. I talked to some people who were at his party in Vegas a couple weekends ago and that seems to be the word on the street.

Hollywood PR is a lot different than other PR. The mentality in Hollywood is that any publicity is good publicity. By having Matt 'date' Paris, he is still being talked about.

Blogs are a good example. Leinart is at the Arizona Cardinals now. If it weren't for the fact that he is dating Hilton, no one would be talking about him right now. So in that sense, it's an effective ploy.

Not that I think it's a bright idea.

In addition to the Your-You're mistake on the back, there is an equally glaring mistake on the front: Thats should be That's (as in that is). . . . However, I think we are being unfair. After all, there are two words on both the front and back but only one mistake per side.

Hasn't Matt broken it off with her yet?

I'd still hit that. With the appropriate amount of condoms firmly in place, of course.
