Okay, this is really freakin' weird.
While looking at this blog (which has a whole Flickr story behind it) I came to this, which links to the weirdness. Somebody put a story on his blog about going to see the Maury Povich show. A very short story with no real moral behind it, just a little blooper moment when Maury mistook a man in the audience for a woman. Big whoop. Ha ha.
But then, somehow, his comments were overwhelmed with people asking for Maury's e-mail address because only he could help them, posting heart-breaking stories about their horrible lives and their sick kids, even though the poor guy kept telling them that he had nothing to do with Maury Povich or his show and that he couldn't get in touch with them if he wanted to.
