Fast FoodWorker's ALSO Become Cops!

Just like his partner Cyrpus Lupo (Jeremy Sisto) the former Burger Shack employee who goes completely postal has made a lateral career change. He has become a cop. Ok he's DETECTIVE Kevin Bernard but it still has it's hand in general copery...Look I say all this in a loving spirit. I LOVE me some Law and Order!

(See the post on his partner who went from high school asshole to cop too!)

Add Miley Cyrus to the list of bong rippas'

Welcome to the Realm of Hollywoods Most Famous Bong Loads on your 18th birthday Miley Cyrus! Actors, singers and Olympic Swimming Multi Gold Medalists alike are card carrying members, along with the majority of most people who can spell the word bong. I find it weird she was taking a rip of saliva though (saliva is like a short term hallucinogenic. Oh yea, it's also legal). It's such a random as drug. It'd be like bringing a bottle of Rumplemintz to a party...

Oh my, Miley.

A video of the pop sensation partying the week of her 18th birthday with a bong has surfaced, but sources tell TMZ that Cyrus was not smoking marijuana.

According to the report, she was smoking a natural herb, salvia, which is legal in California and has hallucinogenic effects.

"I'm having a little bit of a bad trip," Cyrus says into the camera, before asking her "friend", "Is that a Liam look-alike – is that my boyfriend?"

In between bouts of giggles, she asks, "Is that me tripping? Does that look like Liam at all?"

The video, which was shot five days after her birthday, ends in Cyrus saying, "I want more of that s---," after laughing and rambling incomprehensibly.

Highschool Assholes DO Become Cops!

So remember Elton in Clueless? The smooth talking rich asshole who fails to win the heart of Cher? Ugh, I still get super skeeved out when he tries to woo her by singing (badly) a Cranberries song right before he pulls the car over to try and date rape Cher. Well it turns out the movie mirrored real life in at least one way (because nobody had an electronic closet in MY high school). The high school douche bag became a cop, very true to life! Yes, Jeremy Sisto who played Elton in Clueless when he was 21 is now Police Detetive Cyrus Lupo on Law & Order (He's 36 now). He's bigger but still has that gravely deep voice (which incidentally made him perfect for a direct-to-movie Batman installment, "Justice League: The New Frontier").

Your Fear of Mexico Makes You Look Like An Idiot

Take it from a person who has been living here for two months now, honestly it feels more safe here than parts of San Diego I used to hang out in. I've never been mugged or shot at, but in the US my good friend was mugged at gunpoint behind our favorite bar and a friend was shot dead in North Park (San Diego) at a popular bar. Bad things happen ANYWHERE, especially in the good ole USA where the most gun related deaths occur. The American Journal of Public Health conducted a study that concluded "the United States has higher rates of firearm ownership than do other developed nations, and higher rates of homicide. Maybe it's time do the safe thing and move to Mexico? :) Life is good down here....

Tina Fey Jokes on Sarah Palin

Tina Fey’s joke about Sarah Palin and conservative female politicians was edited by PBS during Sunday’s broadcast of the Mark Twain Prize ceremony. While accepting the prestigious comedy award, Fey said, “And, you know, politics aside, the success of Sarah Palin and women like her is good for all women — except, of course, those who will end up, you know, like, paying for their own rape kit ‘n’ stuff. But for everybody else, it’s a win-win. Unless you’re a gay woman who wants to marry your partner of 20 years — whatever. But for most women, the success of conservative women is good for all of us. Unless you believe in evolution. You know what? Actually, I take it back. The whole thing’s a disaster.” The entire unedited video can be viewed below (on PBS’s official web site), and the crucial remarks begin at the 12:30 mark:


No Kisses for You!

During World War II, production of Hershey's Kisses was halted. Not because of a shortage of chocolate, but because the signature aluminum foil packaging was rationed.

(Also, the distinctive paper "plume", is called a Niggly Wiggly. It was used by the company to guarantee that consumers were getting the genuine Hershey product, rather than an imitation.)

Beyonce HEAT Commercial deemed to sexy for TV

This commercial was deemed too hot for daytime TV in Britain. It's definitely sexy but I've seen Victoria Secret Semi-Annual Sale adds that are way more boner inducing than this add by Beyonce for her new perfume Heat. Honestly I just think her body's too damn sexy, I was mesmerized by that commercial. Imagine Gwenyth Paltrow doing that add...chances are it wouldn't be banned from daytime TV because the sex factor wouldn't be there ya know? Go on wich your bad self baby...

Things are not as they seem....

You can never know how tall an actor or actress is by just watching a movie. Paul Rudd is supposedly 5'10 although he looks like he is 5'5 and we all know Sarah Jessica Parker is short but did you know she was 5'2?? Damn camera angles...

It's always hard for me to believe that friggin Top Gun, Mission Impossible, Scary Vanilla Sky Monster is only 5'6!!!

Maybe it's because he came into mainstream stardom when he was about 22 years old with Titanic but he always looks small and young. Turn's out this dude is 6'1?!

Rihanna has the same phenomenon as Leonardo going on. She's got this adorable baby face complete with big gray eyes. Makes me think she's a cuddly 5'2 singing force. But this Barbados native is a tall 5'10!!

Some know that Beyonce has a stage alter ego she calls Sasha Fierce, Sasha owns the stage with the power and might of an person 6'6 or more but Beyonce, long legs and all only measure up to 5'6!!!
