Spicoli Down Under

[Old Human-Interest Stories] OK, I'm apparently the last person on the planet to have seen this. But the upside is that I finally understand the whole "I'll say sorry, but I won't take off my glasses" thing. Corey Worthington has, apparently, used this incident as a springboard to an odd sort of celebrity status.

Brings me back to my own big, illicit, woohoo-the-parents-are-gone teenage party, oh, 20 years back or so. Two of my friends plus two cases of bad, screw-top Wendover "Champagne": a recipe for "totally grounded."

I always thought that was an example of a time my friends and I were really
bad—but, hey, we were perfect angels compared to Australian Party Guy. Too bad YouTube wasn't around in those days--Mom might have let me off easy. (Brandon Burt)


  1. Livin up his 15-minutes of fame. He actually could probably spin this into hosting some MTV show or something.

  2. And I so love that Aussie TV journalist-as-bitchy-mom figure doing the interview! Now THAT'S what's wrong with American TV reporters. They just don't get involved enough to their interview subjects.
