“I don’t think it’s really about me … I think it really is sort of like, I’m a pigeon and the Internet is Fabio and it just happened.”
– Okay, so for those of you who are reading this quote like, “WTF is Ryan Gosling talking about? A pigeon? Fabio?” allow me to explain.

They were right. This is what they meant,” Ryan finally said, after he composed himself. “This is why they stopped the calendar. They were like, ‘You know what? They’re going to start doing dishtowels about that knucklehead, and it’s not worth it. It’s not worth recording anything after that.’” [Yahoo]
