Nonstalgia

The AP reports, you shudder:

The Osmonds will reunite this summer for a TV special celebrating a half-century in the entertainment business. Seven Osmond siblings — Alan, Wayne, Merrill, Jay, Donny, Haley Joel, Latoya, Tito, Marie and Jimmy — are scheduled to be onstage Aug. 13-14 at The Orleans Hotel Showroom, publicist Kevin Sasaki said Thursday from Los Angeles.

And you thought it was hard to name the Seven Dwarves. Seriously, you have to assume Branson was booked for the weekend, so that's how they defaulted to Vegas. Either that or Missouri has better lawyers. I also hate to add that this will air on PBS--so now not only will we have to suffer through pledge periods, they will threaten to play this special again and again till you give.

Rare AP tongue in cheek, since LaToya and Tito are Jacksons.

And I thought stuff in green was quoted. 10 siblings! Ha!

Besides LaToya and Tito, Hayley Joel is an Osment.

Hey, LaToya, Tito, and Haley Joel all needed the work.

And I needed the joke.

"Rare AP tongue in cheek"

Sometimes it helps to read the original article, especially if you're prone to leaping to embarrassingly absurd conclusions.

Sorry, anonymous dude. I ain't fact-checking the Osmonds, especially at 2:30 AM. And generally I trust George to be more accurate than the AP. You got me.

Anon 12:55, please watch the tone. It's fast loose and friendly in INOTBB-land.
