THIS IS THE ONE SUMMER MOVIE SMALL FELLOW DOESN'T WANT YOU TO SEE

Bob Saget is coming out with what sounds like a vicious, R-rated spoof of  one of Fellow's favorite films, "March of the Penguins," this summer. Gilbert Gottfried, Norm Macdonald, and Jon Lovitz, among others, will lend their voice talents, and Samuel L. Jackson will usurp Morgan Freeman's role as narrator, for "Farce of the Penguins," so we can expect a lot of voiceover about penguins "getting busy":

Saget wrote the script. . . that transforms the docu's depiction of penguin survival and mating rituals into the story of one bird's search for love while on a 70-mile trek with hedonistic buddies obsessed with getting laid.

IF YOU LIVED HERE, YOU'D BE RUNNING AWAY FROM HOME NOW

Park Slope has lovely brownstones, gracious sidewalks, splendid parks, and a handful of the nuttiest parents in town, if you're to go by this recent exchange, captured by Gawker.com. In a nutshell: A child's winter hat was found. A parent, "Helene," posted a note to a neighborhood forum that she had found a "boy's hat" ("adorable navy blue or maybe black fleece hat with triangles jutting out ofit of all different colors") and was happy to return it. And then, hilarity ensued, kicked off by "Lisa":

Helene, I’m sorry, I know that you are just trying to be helpful, but what makes this a “boy’s hat”? Did you see the boy himself loose [sic] it? Or does the hat in question possess an unmistakable scent of testosterone?  It’s innocent little comments like this that I find the most hurtful…  What does this comment imply about the girl who chooses to wear just such a hat (or something like it)? Is she doing something wrong? Is there something wrong with her?

- THE WORD IS MESHUGANAH.

- MESHUGANAH. MESHUGANAH. CAN I HAVE A DEFINITION?

Apparently, there's something new to blame the Jews for: Tripping up your kid in the national spelling bee. It seems that during the past few bees, words like Lubavitcher, minyan, and ulpan have sent finalists home crying. The Jewish Week has the schadenfreude.
