On Thursday, two big things happened in the world of entertainment news: 1. J.D. Salinger, one of America’s premiere authors, died at the age of 91. And: 2. It was announced that Jessica Simpson farted in a business meeting, according to UsWeekly.

Now, we don’t want to get all conspiracy theory on you (Oliver Stone, stay away!), but both have the same initials; both are divorced; he wrote a novella called “Nine Stories,” and she released a country album, “Do You Know,” on Sept. 9, 2008! Crazy! Could it be? Could it be that every time Jessica Simpson “passes gas” a notable, elderly personality “passes” on? If so, Andy Rooney had better hope she stays far away from the beans.
