I've hesitated to post this, but I would just like to point out, deep down near the
end of the for-what-it's-worth column, that the movie "Charlie's Angels" has Tom
Green in the character of "Chad." In two scenes in the movie, he quizzes Drew Barrymore's
character about her mysterious (secret agent) behavior when she leaves suddenly.

He questions her with something like, "Was it The Chad? It was The Chad, wasn't it?"

I'm not claiming anything, just noting that his curious third-person usage of his
own name in a popular movie comes coincidentally during our chad days of November. The
French do that, with the article+name (La Whoever), though I can't think of any
examples right now.
