Mad Men creator Matt Weiner recently talked to Grantland about a variety of things in an article titled “How Mad Men will end.” He didn’t say anything except, and I’m paraphrasing here, “Blah, blah, blah.” In the paragraph Kottke pulled out, though was this: “It’s 2011. Don Draper would be 84 right now.” I posted it a couple years ago, but this is weird because a commenter on AMC used this interview with Don Draper to make a convincing case that Draper was born in 1924, not 1927. Being born in 1927 would explain Don’s non-participation in World War II, but not sure how to explain away the 36 in 1960 thing.
Ha. Imagine if the previous paragraph was about Twilight instead of Mad Men.
