Laughs »The Steely Dan vs Owen Wilson Controversy

steely danI had read tidbits about the “beef” between Owen Wilson and Steely Dan about the use of the “Dupree” character from their song “Cousin Dupree” for the Wilson “summer stinkbomb” movie You, Me, and Dupree in the gossip columns, but from reading those, you'd think the whole thing was genuine – but Jim persuaded me to go to the Steely Dan website and read their actual letter to Luke Wilson (“you seem pretty cool, even though you are playing some pretty bogus parts in bad movies all the time”) about how pissed they are at his little brother Owen.

Jim said it was blog-worthy funny, but as he is a Steely Dan fan for real, I thought he may be exaggerating. He was not. Steely Dan is awesome and this letter–possibly written while high– is extremely funny. Just read these post scripts:

p.s. Tell Owen to bring his bongos if he wants to sit in.

p.p.s. We're now seeing that according to Wikipedia Owen is older than you are. But you seem a lot more mature somehow… don't you?

Owen Wilson's reaction is pretty funny too. I'd also like to point out that this stupendous drawing came from this Japanese website that features punching animated fists and even more strange art.
