This Is Why It Wasn't Called Mr. And Mrs. Merkingtinkin


From a spy:

I just got a call from a 20th Century Fox lackey explaining that they are calling everyone named "Smith" in the New York phone book and offering them free passes to a screening of MR AND MRS SMITH tomorrow night. This is kind of a weird, desperate promotional outreach effort — and I pity the two dozen interns who have doubtless been sent on this Oskar Blum-like quest.

Right now, one of those interns is wondering why he didn't listen to his mom, and continue working at the feed store in the town square. "There's always work in corn," she'd told him. But he just didn't listen.—WL
