If there's one idea that your Uncle Grambo has never been able to wrap his head around, it's the appeal of short chicks. Take Rachel Bilson, for example. Thanks to her work on "The O.C." and in Zach Braff's latest jawn, she's been stampeding all over The Blogosphere™ of late, heating up in a manner not seen since the explosion of Ginny Goodwin (March`06 stizz). Highly respected aficianados of the female form like Douglas Reinhardt and Egotastic have gone on record as being nine kinds of cuckoo for them cocoa puffs (the latter recently dubbed her "the new Natalie Portman"). What gives?
Listen, don't get me wrong. Your Uncle Grambo isn't denying that Bilson is as cute as the proverbial patoot. But come on now, standing 5'2" (allegedly) not only puts her knee-high to a grasshopper, but renders her SO teenytiny that she's dwarfed by the GOT DAMN shopping carts at Target! To me, that's neither classy nor sexy. That just ain't right. Not to slight any of YOUR personal prefs when it comes to the boudoir, but getting down with a chick so small that even Kerri Strug could post her up certainly wouldn't make me feel manly. Naw, it'd make me feel like a straight-up Chester.
Maybs it's because I was raised during the days where Glamazonian hotties like Cindy Crawford and Elle MacPherson dominated the headlines. Maybs it's the Darwin in me, convinced that bigger equals better when it comes to prolonging the bloodline. All I'm saying is that all y'all out there who are dating or got your eyez on shorties ain't got nuthin' to worry about -- your Uncle Grambo is lookin' elsewhere for his baby mama. Obvs.
You got the fever for the flavor of some PHC-ringles? Once you pop, you just can't stop.

Double down! On newsstands this week, US Weekly confirms that Vincifer Manivaughnston are engaged! According to friends, "Vince almost cries whenever he tells the story of the proposal." You'd cry too if you had resigned the rest of your days to being all Zoned out.
On the other hand, love ain't all bad. Especially when it means that Jigsaw lands himself a girlfriend in "Saw III"!
Eff those Misshapes douchebagelows and their rosé, your Uncle Grambo has already proclaimed this the summer of The Gimlet.
If Dame Judi Stench can win an Oscar with only eight minutes of screentime, I see no bigglesworth with Ellyn Burstyn getting an Emmy nod for 13 seconds of tube time.
And finally, while your Uncle Grambo could not have had a better time in Chicago this past weekend, there's still a part of me that regrets not sticking around Sunday night for Lollapalooza. So in an attempt to live vicariously through the experience of others, I read at least 40 different write-ups of the weekend. For what it's worth, methinks that Web Vomit and Thighs wrote the best recaps and Frank Chromewaves took the best snaps. Thanks fellas.
