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!'




...who?

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?
