pretzel logic

Owen Wilson kind of rules.

In response to accusations that You, Me and Dupree, Wilson's new movie about a houseguest who overstays his welcome (hello wackiness!) was inspired by "Cousin Dupree", a Steely Dan song about, um, a houseguest who overstays his welcome (hello jazz-rock!), Wilson had the following to say:

"I have never heard the song 'Cousin Dupree' and I don't even know who this gentleman, Mr. Steely Dan, is. I hope this helps to clear things up and I can get back to concentrating on my new movie, 'Hey 19.'" (credit)
