Curiosity Loves Company
"The current chief obsession of my life is Tina Fey's scar. I noticed it the first time I saw her and have been dying to find out what put it there. Unfortunately, my research only tells me that it was a childhood incident that she refuses to discuss."
Then there's some dude on a discussion board related to Tucker Max whose obsession with the scar takes a decidedly prurient tone:
"I wanna lick Tina Fey's scar. A girl with a scar on her face (not acne) has a story to tell. That's hot."
It's nice to know I'm not alone. In terms of interest in the scar, that is. It's not like I want to lick it. Well, under the right... Anyway....
Fey to Shill for Credit Card Company
Remember when it was Karl Malden and his gargantuan nose encouraging us to use American Express products? Now that I think about it, I'm not sure he actually did the credit cards ads, he may have just pitched the travelers' checks. Hmmm....
Anyway, AmEx is apparently planning to upgrade in the spokesperson category. A brief entry at Canada.com reveals that the plastic (that's plastique if you're toting "platinum" status) provider will snag none other than the beautiful, witty and cryptically scarred Tina Fey as a pitch person.
The gossipy column in which the statement appears also spends time talking about Andy Dick's peeing habits and an upcoming Brad Pitt movie. If you're having a celeb-gossip jones, check it out.
Here's the comment pertaining to Tina Fey:
"Watch for Tina Fey in the next series of TV and print ads for American Express."
Short but sweet.
The Tina Fey Scar Detective OWNS Yahoo
Meanwhile, Yahoo has it right. If you decide to search using Yahoo (and apparently there are at least 20 or 30 people who do so), you will get this blog as your #1 result for "Tina Fey Scar".
Hell yeah. "The Detective" owns Yahoo.
Now that I'm under the pressure that can only come from being #1, I better get my caboose on the track, hunting down clues that will finally explain the source of Fey's scar. In between those morsels of important information, I will serve up other Tina Fey news and notes. I don't want you to get bored while I research, after all.

Resource for Online Shoppers
Apparently, I'm not the only person with these concerns, because there's a website out there designed to make the buying/shopping experience easier for folks like me. It's TrustSource.com and it embodies a pretty cool concept.
Let's say you're going bald and you'd like to find a cure for your hair loss. You could buy some Rogaine. You could put your trust in Ron Popeil's hair in a can. Maybe one of those highly-touted solutions like provillus is on your list. How are you going to decide? TrustSource lays out all of the options in front of you with full descriptions, user reviews and other data to help you make a smart buy.
It's the same thing if you're looking for cellulite cream. These folks have busted down the whole industry and re-arranged it into easy-to-interpret pieces. Experiencing hot flashes as part of the menopause experience? No problem. TrustSource will give you some direction in finding the right remedy for you.
Online shopping doesn't have to be the equivalent of throwing darts blindfolded. You can get the information you need to make smart buys--organized intuitively and presented smartly. Why take chances when you can find the right stuff the right way the first time, right?
Old Photos of Tina Fey Create Flashbacks
- Tina Fey was a little on the less-than-monumentally hot side of things.
- Tina Fey was a fashion victim, just like everyone else from that era.
- Tina Fey's claim of a childhood source of the scar is buttressed by the photos. You can see hints of the scar in them.
- Tina Fey definitely does a better job with her hair these days. And she looks a wee bit tanner, too.
Fey Will Hand Over the Hardware
Some teary-eyed Emmy winner will get their trophy from Tina Fey!
According to The Canadian Press, Tina will be a hardware handler along with several other TV notables, including "30 Rock" talent and child-berater Alec Baldwin:
"Alec Baldwin, Tina Fey, Stephen Colbert and Kyra Sedgwick are among the celebrities added to the list of presenters for the 59th Primetime Emmy Awards. Baldwin and Fey star on NBC's "30 Rock," Colbert is host of "The Colbert Report" on Comedy Central, and Sedgwick stars on TNT's "The Closer." Other presenters announced Thursday by executive producer Ken Ehrlich include Marcia Cross, Ellen DeGeneres and Julia Louis-Dreyfus."
Watch Tina Fey in Mean Girls...
That probably doesn't shock you. The movie came out forever ago and it's not like it was only in limited release, a mere cult film that might be incredibly hard to find. So, you can watch Tina in "Mean Girls". As they used to say out on the playground, "no duh".
But wait, you can watch JUST Tina Fey in "Mean Girls". Some enterprising YouTubester went through the flick with a fine-toothed comb and excised all of Tina's screen time from the rest of the movie. It's a Tina Fey-only production.
The film doesn't hold up absent the rest of the cast, but for pure, unadulterated Fey... Well, it's definitely that:
