If not informative, they’re good for a laugh or two

OrangeTV/Making Flippy Floppy is making a name for himself with his candid reviews of local restaurants, nightclubs and music. So it wasn’t surprising that he’d review the first batch of PG13-rated e-mails between Prosecutor Bill Douglas and former employee Marina Kalani. At Huckleberries Online, OTV listed his personal faves recently: 1. Bill dressing up as “Puff Daddy Combs” for a party. 2. Marina’s proposed Christian music CD. 3. Bill turning his “boomer bass” up to 30 and “thumps with Sean Paul?” (Wow, Reggaeton? Who knew the guy was so up on the musical trends.) 4. Bill Douglas wears a “John Kerry coat.” 5. Marina: “Thinking about you.” Bill: “Me here, ditto.” (Ditto? What a romantic guy.) 6. Bill wants Marina to wear a “blue sequined gown” for the drug court brochure photo shoot. (Isn’t that overdressing a little?) 7. Bill refers to his PC as his “pewter.” 8. Marina needs a drug fix so bad she’d “settle for cold medicine.” 9. Marina’s mad when Bill offers to give her a laptop, and she doesn’t even get to sleep with him for it. 10. Bill: “Nerds Control the World.” 11. Marina possibly gets paid $300 just to sing the Hawaiian wedding song. 12. Marina quotes Bill some really cheesy Heart lyrics, and then breaks down, typing “When? When? When? When? When? When? When? When? When? When? When? When? When? When? When? When?” (and so forth like an insane person). Six hundred e-mails to go.
