We all know the first stop on the comeback train is Self-Referential Humor Town. Newly-single Lindsay Lohan is its latest visitor with an eHarmony profile spoof on Funny or Die. She describes herself as “a workaholic, a shopaholic, and, according to the state of California, an alcoholic,” and reveals that her compatible mate – male or female – doesn’t have family members quick to issue restraining orders. Is this a smart career move or a sign of desperation? Sure, I laughed while watching it. But at this point, has the “poke fun at yourself” way of handling Hollywood hiccups become too calculating and cliché to fuel the comeback train?
