Today’s Dumbest Statement comes to you via Yahoo! Style:
There’s just so many things wrong with this photo caption that maybe it qualifies for the Dumbest Statements of the Day. Or the month.
There’s the creative use of an apostrophe in Mr. Franco’s name, as if his first name is Jame.
There’s the horrendous claim that Jack Kilmer is Mr. Franco’s offspring. (Here’s a little clue to the writer: a progeny is a descendant or offspring. That’s not the same as a prodigy, which is the word a literate person would use.)
Let’s not overlook the parenthetical statement that implies James Franco is a 19-year-old, who starred in his own film, “Palo Alto.”
Finally we learn that James Franco, the 19-year-old, is a fan of Val Kilmer’s son and Saint Laurent, which strikes me as a bit of a non sequitur. Perhaps both James Franco and Saint Laurent are fans of Mr. Kilmer’s son. Who is also Mr. Franco’s son.
I’m so confused.
