It happens to us all.
We see something so far out our normal expectations that we have to stop and convince ourselves we actually saw what we thought we saw.
You know what I'm talking about.
The first time you saw Brett Favre in a Minnesota Vikings uniform.
Randy Travis mugshot.
The Tampa Bay Rays in the World Series.
Clint Eastwood last night at the RNC.
I'll give you a minute to try to digest what you just watched.
That right there is a full on WTF moment kids.
I was sitting in the theater with the family waiting for Paranorman
to start when that rolled up on me. I'm still not sure what I saw.
I'm also not sure what the actors were told before they signed on to be seen in Oogust.

The only upside I've been able to find in their existence is they gave me a reason to make this week's selection.
Please say hello to Jaime Pressley
The affection our group and our readers have for the late My Name is Earl
is well documented. Nadine Velasquez was a two-time cheesecake of the year. Somehow we never featured Earl's ex-wife and mother of everyone's kids but his. Today we correct that oversight.
In addition to her turn as the hapless Joy Turner, Ms. Pressley has appeared in such other Geek-approve fare as Tomcats, Ringmaster, Joe Dirt, Not Another Teen Movie, DOA: Dead or Alive
and I Love You, Man
She's still Joy to us so we'll try to forgive her her Oogieloves, but it won't be easy.
