This morning we discussed the fan theory about the movie Titanic that has shaken America (and anyone listening this morning) to their core. The theory, which surfaced originally on Reddit, suggests that Rose could not save Jack at the end of the movie - because he never existed. That's right according to an article in the Daily Mail, the character of Rose dreamt Jack up to deal with the "misery of her life". If you remember, Rose was engaged to be married to Cal, a man she didn't care for and who was the exact opposite of Jack. After 101-year old Rose tells her story, she's told there is no record of Jack Dawson ever being on board. And Rose says, "He exists now only in my memory."

But fellow WITL listener Sandy emailed a question:

"If your theory is correct about the Titanic then who painted the nude picture of Rose????? Wasn't Jack Dawson the one to do that in the movie?? Just curious."

To that I reply - world's most elaborate selfie.
