Who Really Named This Website?

I thought I coined the phrase “better than a baby,” but it turns out the legendary movie director Preston Sturges beat me to it. Of his 11 rules for box office appeal, the last three are:

9. A baby is better than a kitten.

10. A kiss is better than a baby.

11. A pratfall is better than anything.

Not sure how much of a kindred spirit Preston was, given that his #1 rule is “A pretty girl is better than an ugly one.” But I’m happy to see my website’s name has some Hollywood cred.
