I told you so

No need to watch all of this clip - just the first few seconds:

Is it just me, or is this a somewhat bizarre way to announce your paternity of a child to the world?

"I hate to be the one to tell you this, but... I told you so!".

To me, that response is more suited to a smarmy 11-year-old, who's just successfully outsmarted his ignorant classmates by proving that the upcoming Transformers movie is not a new concept, but is in fact based on an old TV cartoon.

And the fact that his statement was greeted with cheers and whoops, you'd think he'd just won a gold medal, or an Oscar, or successfully developed a cure for chronic hiccuping. But no, they're celebrating the fact that it was this man - and not the line-up of fakers - who managed to get his sperm into Anna Nicole's egg all those months ago: "Yeah, man! You go! You knocked up Anna Nicole! Rock on!"

He is not a returning astronaut, or popular talk show host. He's just some dude who accidentally became the father to the world's most famous baby-with-a-now-dead-Playboy-bunny-Mum. I know nothing about Larry Birkhead, but for the baby's sake, I hope he realises fatherhood lasts longer than 15 minutes.
