Tina Fey Scar Detective No Longer Listed at Wikipedia...
Soon after launching this important look at one of society's great mysteries, I was kind enough to stop by Wikipedia and add a link so that others could come and learn about the Tina Fey scar.
A few people found the Detective via this link, but I recently noticed that the once consistent trickle of Wikipedians had ceased. Intrigued, I went back to the Tina Fey page and, to my horror, found this site was no longer listed.
It may have been an oversensitive Tina Fey fan. It may have been Tina herself. It may have been something more...
If Angelina Jolie has a bag of fries and her stomach poofs out a bit while she is out running around town, someone will snap the photo and demand an answer. Is she pregnant? Is she overeating? Did she enjoy the fries? Who made the fries? Is that a vial of the fry guy's blood around her neck? People will demand answers! And, they generally get answers.
Now, on the other hand, if you are a television star and much-heralded member of the entertainment industry and have a pretty noticeable scar down your face you would think that would probably get as much play as some fries from McD's. However, when it comes to Tina's scar, there is a different outlook. Ask "how did she get that?" and you hear dead silence, occasionally punctuated with a cry of "none of your business."
Is it a conspiracy? I don't know. Yet. I am wondering. One of Tina's online fan clubs makes it a Rule Violation to discuss the scar. Despite Gawker's best efforts to produce a good scar tip, they seem to have come up empty handed. A simple link to the Tina Fey Scar Detective is surreptitiously removed from the Wikipedia. It's all a bit strange to me.
I can find pictures of virtually any female celebrity pulling her swimsuit out of her crack while walking down a beach during an otherwise private moment within thirty seconds. I can find out the names and credits of every person Jennifer Aniston has ever bedded. But the scar? Nope.
