CI #85 -- Talking too much

How do you know when you talk too much?

Consider the following exchange, which actually took place while watching the trailer for "Get Him To the Greek" a.k.a. "Let's try to Duplicate the Excitement of The Hangover":

Katie: What's that guy's name again?

Greg: Huh?! Well, it's currently Diddy, I think. I think Sean Combs works as well...

Katie: Umm...

Greg: But if you're really asking, it was Puff Daddy first. He changed it like 43 times. Both "Puffy" and "Puff" I think were completely acceptable and maybe even interchangeable -- don't know if they still are -- but I think that would be more like if you knew him personally...

Katie: Uhh...

Greg: like Mase or something. But that was back when he was actually rapping. Around the time he stopped, I think he went to "P. Diddy," which apparently was too long and got shortened to "Diddy." By the way, he's always a great Letterman guest -- it's hilarious when Dave introduces him. So I think to be safe, just go with "Sean" or "Diddy."

Katie: No. The British guy.

Greg: Oh. Russell Brand. ... Sorry.
