What is cool now?

Maybe I’m too old, but I just don’t get the popularity of Ashton Kutcher. I’ve watched his films. I’ve seen his hit TV shows. And frankly, I’m not that impressed. For instance, on the last episode of Punked, Ashton was proudly sporting an engineer cap. That really got me thinking:

I myself used to wear an engineer cap. When I was nine. I also had a tiny N-Scale train set to go with it. I’d stand at the controls and pretended I was hauling passengers off to far away lands, like Los Angeles, Bakersfield and Ohio. Along the way, I’d announce points of interest, while the ladies sipped tea and nibbled on scones (okay, I made that part up). Yes, it was a beautiful day for a train ride. Until tragedy struck. Suddenly, my mighty locomotive caught the edge of a Styrofoam tunnel and the passengers screamed for their lives! I must’ve dragged that tunnel for five miles (N-Scale) before the train derailed into a forest of fake plastic trees.

So does that make me cool? Or is it just cool to look like a dork and not actually be one? Why is Ashton Kutcher so popular? Is he really that attractive? Or is it just because he’s shtuping Demi Moore? The whole Ashton Kutcher thing. I just don’t get it.

    He should start carrying around the “Dungeon Master’s Guide” wherever he goes.

    Wonder if he would be even cooler?

    Well, he’s no great actor, but he’s kinda hot and looks like he has a big dick. Really.

    Is there really a “big dick” look? I thought there was that ironic thing with skinny nerdy guys being incredibly well-hung. No?

    Skinny, yes. Nerdy, usually not. But with Mr. Kutcher, I think yes.

    I didn’t even get his name for a while. I thought it was “Ashton McKutcheon” for some reason.

    There is so a big dick look. Or more like a vibe. You’d be amazed at how many short, skinny men have enormous– okay maybe you don’t care.

    What disturbs me about Ashton- is all the “sexy” talk. My ex-husband looks exactly like him. Only he’s a latino.

    And yes, it was enormous. But sexy? I don’t know.

    Ashton Kutcher, sexy? Ehhhh…nahh. But then again, I find Tom Petty devastatingly sexy for no apparent reason. Maybe the skinny-nerdy thing? Oooooh, I have known some skinny dorks that are VERY well compensated.

    Annamatic, I think your sex vibe is a little off-center. No offense and stuff.
