After last night’s Lost and South Park double-header, The New York Times’ Dave Itzkoff calls for an end to random Star Wars references on TV. I for one am more than willing to surrender him Family Guy and all reality shows. (Okay, make that triple on the reality shows. Particularly the ones that involve ‘talent.’)
I don’t think that Britney’s people have entirely thought this concept through. So let’s hold a contest of our own: Post your own wild and crazy (well, not too crazy: Keep it PG-13) crossover fan fiction ideas. Any fandom, but it better have Britney.

Of note to the women of Club Jade, one of his lectures will be entitled “From Bjo Trimble to Starwars Chicks: Female Fans of Star Wars and Star Trek.”

There will also be a comparison of male and female fans regarding their fan activities, and a comparison of “Star Wars” fans to Star Trek fans.”
How quickly will this talk end up on the internet?
