Dumber than your average college student?

A girl across the class upon being chastized for using her stir stick after she had placed it on the desk: 'You're such a germaphobe, just like Howie Mandela!'


Did she mean Howard Hughes, he of the Kleenex boxes and jars of urine?

Did she mean Howie Mandel, of Bobby's World fame? Did he have a predilection for Lysol, and I'm just not current on my washed-up-actors-turned-game-show-hosts' phobias?

Did Nelson Mandela have a brother that none of us knew about?

Is she just D-U-M, and I should go back to sailing my Facebook Pirate?

Yes, Howie Mandel is a germ freak - he allegedly won't shake people's hands and this one time, I saw him on Regis and Kelly and someone grabbed his hand and forced him to shake and he was grossed out and I felt sorry for him cuz that other person was bullying him. I mean, if someone throws a grasshopper at me, I want to die, so...focus September, focus.
I can totally top this.
I was at the hairdresser's and one of the girls was talking about Paris Hilton's Confessions of an Heiress...and she pronounced it hire-ess.
It took me at least 2 seconds to figure out what she really meant.
Then, she told all of us with great glee about how she sabotaged the boyfriend she just split up with - neet in his shampoo bottle, vinegar in the milk, that sort of thing.

I mean, what do you even say to people like that?
