I actually own the domain shockedshocked.com, and always thought it would be fun to assemble all the items that make me say that every day.
The line, of course, comes from Casblanca. (I watched that with a friend once who had never seen it, and he said he felt like he had because so many of the lines are part of popular culture.)
But I digress.
The ultimate in being shocked. Shocked! came today courtesy of TechCrunch, which reports that the founder of MySpace may not actually be the age he lists on his MySpace page.
How can this be?!?!?! Someone fudging the truth on the Internet?!?!?! Especially about his age!!! Who does he think is, a European Soccer Phenom????
Once again, Colbert has nailed people before he even knows it. The most important thing is not truth, but "truthiness."
