Finally, a Proper Alanis Morissette Definition of “Ironic”

For years, people speculated on the identity of the person who inspired Alanis Morissette to write “You Outghta Know.”  Was it Matt LeBlanc?  Bob Saget (yes, him)?  Leslie Howe (producer of Alanis’ two pre-Jagged Little Pill albums)?  Ottawa Senators/New Jersey Devils star Mike Peluso?

The answer turned out to be Dave Coulier, an American comedian who played Joey Gladstone on Full House.

Dave has a great sense of humour as evidenced by his autograph on this copy of Jagged Little Pill.  The CD recently sold online for $90.  Cheap, really.
