Today has been painfully slow, even for a Friday. Thankfully, we can always return to a subject that never fails to give a rise to our traffic: Oona O’Connell, the fabulously glamorous young lawyer who has graced the pages of Playboy.
Remember the ATL tipster who first informed us of Oona O’Connell? As you may recall, Ms. O’Connell was pretty pissed:
Oona O’Connell is my given name. It was the name my parents chose for me and I found it very hurtful to hear it described by your ignorant ‘tipster’ as coming from a ‘porn-name generator’.
From the original “ignorant tipster”:
Thanks for the continuing Oona coverage. Nice work.
I have to say I’m humbled… When that first-year told me about Oona and I looked up her pics, I was thinking that she was some moron who — like other naked law students covered in ATLs pages — took off her clothes because she couldn’t do anything else. So I sent her info in to you for posting and made fun of her.
Now, after reading your correspondence, she seems pretty cool, and pretty well adjusted. I feel kind of bad that I prejudged her. Send that along to her if you’d like.
Sorry to sound like an afterschool special. But you know what? Perhaps ATL taught me a lesson today. Good on you. “The more you know.”
Rest assured, however, I will quickly forget this lesson and will send you more targets for public ridicule.
Isn’t that sweet? Here at ATL, we love a happy ending. Yay!
