Is it OK to call Owen Wilson "the Butterscotch Stallion"?
Today, in addition to a link to a promising trailer for the new Owen Wilson comedy You, Me and Dupree, one of our staffers received this email:

Subject: LAUNCHED: Exclusive trailer for ‘You, Me and Dupree’
It’s Owen Wilson Day at Yahoo! Movies.
Here’s the trailer for ‘You, Me and Dupree,’ starring Kate Hudson, Matt Dillon and the Butterscotch Stallion as the houseguest who wouldn’t leave. ‘You, Me and Dupree’ opens July 14th.
This is, presumably, an official communique from Camp Wilson. So are we to gather that Wilson’s unofficial nickname, the Butterscotch Stallion, is now official? If so, bottles of champagne are being uncorked over at Defamer, which coined the term (to better characterize the alleged bedroom prowess of The Equine One) and worked hard to sow it in every media furrow, even facing court action for their trouble. After all, if one star embraces a blog-minted tag, the rest will surely follow.
In this endeavor, I encourage you to help me with a mass re-christening of celebrities, beginning with George “That Handsome Guy Who Sleeps with a Lot of Women” Clooney. Any other bright ideas?
