Friday Fun Fact!

First, I’d like to thank Miss Pasko for her comment on my about page, and for pointing me to the UK’s Daily Telegraph, where TV personality Graham Norton writes an advice column called “Pillow Talk.”  It looks like fun, and I look forward to reading more!  (Like I had anything to do this weekend anyway….)

But in my brief peek at the column, the most important thing I learned is that, in the UK, advice columnists are familiarly referred to as “agony aunts.”

Wikipedia confirms: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Advice_column

I had no idea.  So, what do you think?  Love it?  Hate it?  And why don’t we have a slang term for advice columnists on this side of the pond?
