And so the moment AMC has poured untold thousands of advertising dollars into is here: the long-awaited premier of Season 5 of "Mad Men." As you swish by in your Peggy- or Joan-inspired frock at a premier party or hunker down in your circa 1999 Old Navy sweats to watch at home, we invite you to play a little game with us. It's called "What Would Happen During Season 5 If We Were In Charge."
Jezebel's Doug Barry got the ball rolling today with a list of improbable "Mad Men" Season 5 hookups -- "speculat[ing] wildly about liaison scenarios so remote, so outrageous that nobody except a crazed person strung out on instant coffee and gummy worms could think of them."

Until that occurs, probably none of these predictions will come to pass, but here's hoping.
