The "Over The Moon" Watch: The Nikki Cox & Jay Mohr Edition
Somewhere in Los Angeles today, Nikki Cox felt an intense kicking in her huge lips, she bit down and out came a tiny leg followed by a full grown baby. Don't worry, the medical team at the hospital stuffed a rubber python in there, patched it up and now they're back to looking like two fat skin slugs 69ing each other. Meanwhile, Jay Mohr announced the birth of their new son, Meredith Daniel Mohr, to People and dropped a first-degree Over the Moon violation. It's a first-degree offense, because it was premeditated and Jay knew he was doing wrong.
"We are over the moon, filled with joy and every other cliché new parents use. He's perfect."
Old-timey people from prairie times named their sons Meredith, so Jay and Nikki get a pass on the name even though they're not old-timey people from prairie times. But the Over the Moon is unacceptable, because Jay knew what he was doing and he did it anyway. Couldn't he have used something else instead of the moon? The moon is sick of being used like this! Jay could've said he's over his wife's lips. This would've been a better choice of words for two reasons: a) Jay can physically go over his wife's lips and b) his wife's lips are bigger than the moon.
