Ed O'Neil and his newspaper reading habits are going viral, thanks to George Takei and his Facebook wall.  George posted this image yesterday proving that Ed O'neil has been reading the same newspaper for the past 20 years.  I guess not much has changed in the newspaper prop market between Married With Children and Modern Family.

Hopefully Modern Family will have some fun with this next season and work in a newspaper with a headline that reads "Polk High running back scores 4 touchdowns in one game".  Better yet, I'd love to start seeing random Married With Children references scattered throughout the series by the other Modern Family cast members.  I'm talking about Eric Stonestreet wearing a Polk High #33 football jersey, or Julie Bowen having to deal with a crass shoe salesmen that's given up on life.

The in-episode Married With Children references are probably a stretch, but Ed O'Neil has already caught wind of his virality. »
