Answers to Demi Moore’s Rhetorical Questions: A Lesson in the Abject Wisdom of the Masses

  • The First Couple of Twitter, Demi Moore (who you may know from the relationship therapy romantic comedy Indecent Proposal, in which she sleeps with a guy for a million Twitter followers) and Ashton Kutcher (who you may know as the actor who sealed his place in the canon of American Thespians with Oscar-winning period drama Dude, Where’s My Car?) recently got a divorce, because Kutcher is a no-good philandering sleazebag lady-seducer, is why. One of the trickier issues of this couple’s divorce, however, is the way Ms. Moore dignified Mr. Kutcher by joining him in digital matrimony…on Twitter…as @MrsKutcher. And if this lady isn’t going to keep John McClane’s last name, why would she keep Kelso’s?

    Not a rhetorical question, to us. But to her, it is. Quoteth @MrsKutcher:

    changing my twitter name isn’t a top priority right now. sorry it bothers so many of u. should I not tweet until I do?does it really matter?

    Funny she should ask (rhetorically). Because a lot of people have a lot of opinions on this. And what are they?

    Funny you should ask. Because we’ve put some of the best ones in a slideshow for you. Rather than throw them in a This, folks, is Twitter wisdom at its finest.

  • Some people find answers to life's most complex, pressing questions and epic difficulties in the most simple of solutions. For that, we envy them. And also would like to know exactly where they procure their sandwiches.

  • Often times, the way in is the way out. Like, a door. Or bringing on your new last name early. Which Demi Moore didn't do prior to being married to Ashton Kutcher. But it's worth bringing into the conversational fold regardless.

  • We're not entirely sure what a 'Coocher' is but surely, somewhere on Urban Dictionary, someone has already minded this issue. We'll move forward with that faith alone.

  • Sometimes, people in Hell don't need to get out so much as a glass of cold water. This would appear to be that.

  • The second of the Four Noble Truths of Buddhism is: "The origin of suffering is attachment." The third is: "The cessation of suffering is attainable." Ms. Moore's latent attachment, it appears to be suggested here, may be central to whatever suffering she may experience right now. Just a theory.

  • Maybe, it's suggested, @MrsKutcher simply needs some social media consulting help.

  • It's not an unpopular theory.
