Avatar Is For Adulterers


Ashley Madison sounds like the name of a cheap plus-size clothing chain, but it is actually a Craigslist Casual Encounters site for married people who apparently have no idea what Craigslist Casual Encounters is.  Avatar sounds like the name of a fake virtual reality game in an episode of Law & Order circa 1999, but it is actually a recent 3-D movie about the lives, loves, and struggles of blue catpeople.
