Stupid things happen all the time in Hollywood. Which one of these really happened?

1 - Birthdays are a special time, even for a Hollywood executive. But if you're gonna celebrate an agent's birthday, you darn sure better do it right. For after everyone gathered and sang and the candles were blown out, this executive just sat there, not partaking in the bounty of cupcakes. Atkins diet? Type-2 diabetes? Nope. They didn't have his favorite cupcake. But the fun didn't stop there. The executive took his assistant aside and told her to get his favorite cupcake so he could be part of his birthday party.

2 - Prom can be a stressful time for any teenager. What do I wear? Where's the after party? Should I wear my retainer? But a teen's life is a little bit easier when you have a Hollywood exec as a parent and that exec has an assistant. For you see, before the "greatest night of her life," the exec's daughter needed a corsage to match her outfit. "So where does the assistant factor in?" you ask. Just where you'd think -- the assistant was charged with finding the aforementioned flower for the big night. No word on whether the girl later got "deflowered."

3- Lunchtime for a Hollywood assistant is more of a myth than anything else. It's usually just enough time pour hot water on Ramen noodles and maybe grab a spoon. So when an actual lunchtime presents itself, assistants will use the entire hour to zone out, relax, maybe even watch a screener. In this case, a Hollywood assistant put on her headphones and watched a movie on her computer. The opening credits had barely finished when an executive (not her boss) walked over and complained the noise through the headphones was much too loud and to turn it down. To add insult to injury, the exec then asked the assistant to get him a bottle of water.


The voters thought...

Birthday Cupcake Fiasco...22%
Flower Me...33%
Lunchtime Cinema Interrupted ... 44%

And the correct answer is....

#2 -- FLOWER ME. It's hard to believe that something so absurd could be so right.
