Yes! It’s time for another round of Jimmy Kimmel’s wonderful ongoing skit featuring celebrities reading mean tweets about themselves.

By happenstance, Hollywood megastars Brad Pitt and Matthew McConaughey perhaps had my all-time favorite bro moment while hanging down in New Orleans over the weekend.

However, my fandom is strictly reserved to watching the episodes every week, and doesn’t extend to the obsessive True Detective detective work being done online by fans and critics attempting to decipher the seemingly infinite number of clues and Easter eggs hidden throughout the show.
