I know there’s money in NFL betting, but I’m starting to think gambling on the next celebrity cell phone scandal is where the future is. Brett Favre is the latest yutz to wind up in a dumb yet hilarious scandal involving voicemails (allegedly), and while his messages aren’t nearly as horrifying as Mel Gibson’s nor as widespread as Tiger Woods’, the Vikings quarterback did make the critical error of (allegedly) sending photos of his manhood to his would-be suitor, a former Jets employee named Jenn Sterger. And sadly for Brett, they were not flattering images. The word “Lilliputian” comes to mind.
Anyway, the best part of all this embarrassing silliness is that now everyone — from blogs to newspapers — get to have a field day at Favre’s expense. Deadspin, which broke the story last week, has happily provided a digest of all the silly puns (read: my favorite things EVER) and fussy articles that have emerged in the wake of the Vikings’ loss last night.
