Week in Review: Leaked-Memo Edition!

The attached is inspired by that embarrassing internal MGM memo about the online buzz around the new Valkyrie trailer:

Favorable Tone Dominates Tina Fey Buzz — Currently, reactions to Tina Fey's second performance as the Republican vice-presidential candidate are significantly favorable (approximately 80 %) within Entertainment, Fan-Boy, Video Sharing, Social Networks, Social Bookmarks, and Fan communities. A French newspaper deemed her performance "convincing," and ran a photograph of the "increasingly adorable" actress in place of the "actual" Sarah Palin. Enthusiasts in the publishing world are willing to pay "staggering" sums of money for a book written by Fey, though she's too busy to "write a proposal" or "take a meeting."

Additional Assets Also Garner Rave Reviews — In addition, speculation on the theme song for a "long-awaited" sequel starring a "possibly insane" vodka salesman, "groovy" jam-band reunions, "the best" One Crazy Night movies of all time, and "pants-wetting" early footage of the Watchmen movie has been generating largely positive user reactions.

Lack of Swedish Accents Still an Issue — While several American authors are "extremely" wealthy, the top member of the Swedish Academy award jury has deemed America writers too "ignorant" and "insular" to win the Nobel Prize.

Vulture Coverage Widely Spread — We also had some "awesome" posts about "girl-kissing" Katy Perry's new doll, the "miserable" new front man of Journey, the "thrilling" return of Harvey Scissorhands, and the "oddball" things your comic collection truly needs.
