Alanis Morissette Has Humps, Too:

P.S. Scary celebrity tattoos -- as in Rodney Dangerfield scary.

That clinches it. I got major buddy-love for Timberlake. He's grounded and playful at the same time, doesn't put up with celebrity B.S. but also doesn't take himself so seriously that he can't camp it up for an auditorium full of kids. I saw him get slimed at the tail end of the Nick awards and you'd think he was in the backyard with 6000 nieces and nephews. He is officially a Good Guy.

A Rodney Dangerfield tattoo isn't really that odd, but Conan O'Brian? He's not even funny or talented in the least way. Who would go through that torture for him?!

Don't be so harsh - "fattish imbecile" is going a little far.

Wait ... I'm sorry ... Since you were looking in the mirror we all figured you were talking to yourself again.

Tell your Doctor the meds aren't working anymore so he can up the dosage.

Given her weight problem and limited intellectual abilities (umm, fire melts steel every day, that is how they get it soft enough to shape it), she really shouldn't be calling someone else a "fattish imbecile."

Posted by: ep | April 3, 2007 9:09 AM | Report abuse

I have to agree with Bill O. and ep. Rosie has no business calling anyone a fattish imbecile. Does anyone remember her stand up comedy act? It was far from clean. How can SHE be so judgemental? Please ABC, can her!

" Rosie O'Donnell calls Bill O'Reilly a "fattish imbecile"... "

And in other news, a pot has called a kettle black.

My favorite part of the article on KITT:

Most of the buttons don't do anything, Verhoek said. Nor can the car hold a conversation or drive itself.

LOL! Can you imagine someone reading that and thinking, "Darnit! Well, I'm not gonna waste my money then." Awesome the things you have to tell people.

Some of those tattoos are amazing. Not that I'd want Rodney Dangerfield on my leg, but they're still great artwork.

How appropriate that the kid Eddie's denying is born on his birthday?

And that Alanis video? ROFLMAO!!!

Posted by: Bored @ work | April 3, 2007 10:08 AM | Report abuse

For what possible reason would anyone want a Tony Danza tattoo?

Barb: I must disagree. Conan O'Brian is funny through not on the same level as Jon Stewart or David Letterman.

So I read the Fergie article, wondering if she was somehow feeling insecure and wanted to grab some spotlight.

And now I see why. Alanis totally upstaged her! That was !@#$%^&* hilarious!

Rosie calling someone a "fattish imbecile". I mean, this stuff just writes itself. Her standup act was far from funny too.

The Alanis video is...surreal. She's got a razor-sharp sense of humor and I like that.

"The Alanis video is...surreal."

OMFG yes. I found myself backing away from the monitor.

Another adoption for Angelina Jolie? If these kids were cats, we'd call her a hoarder.

Posted by: DC Cubefarm | April 3, 2007 11:05 AM | Report abuse

I enjoyed this year Kid's Choice Awards more than Golden Globes and Oscars combined, and I'm in my thirties. Yes, I watched Nickelodeon sue me.

Posted by: Lisa1 | April 3, 2007 11:16 AM | Report abuse

DC Cubefarm beat me to it. Angelina Jolie definitely qualifies as a collector, if she does it again.

I found it interesting that Angelina feels that Shiloh does not need a sibling who looks like her, but Max and Zahara do.

Posted by: Lisa1 | April 3, 2007 11:27 AM | Report abuse

Lisa1, Angelina notes that Shiloh has Brad and her to look at. It is not a sibling requirement, just a person-like-me issue.

This is totally off-topic, but of critical importance to all the women going thru withdrawal because Liz hasn't posted a gratuitous picture of Gerard Butler in a couple of weeks--he's going to be on the Tonight Show tonite. Whee!

This concludes the public service announcement.

Aslee Simpson & The Cure? My. Head. Hurts.

Can the Pokémon franchise license Angelina Jolie's family for a limited-edition "Pokémon: Angelina Jolie Collection"?

Just think, we could have children of the world printed on each card, and as "Angelina Jolie", your job is to collect them all. Be the first on your block to collect the extremely rare Aleutian child!

All proceeds from "Pokémon: Angelina Jolie Collection" can go towards UNICEF or some other Angelina-sanctioned charity. Everybody wins! :)

Rose McGowan's lover and his wife named their kids Rebel, Rocket, Rogue and Racer? Holy moly ... these people should be locked up for child abuse.

Yep, I agree Angelina's a hoarder. Aren't there laws against adopting too many children too soon? If not, there should be. And I don't like her cavalier attitude towards Shiloh. She just doesn't seem to care about that kid much.

ROFL, Ken!! :-)

Alanis's cover reminds me of Ben Folds' "B!tches Ain't Sh*t" version last year or so.

The Cure/Ashlee Simpson union surely signals something unholy yet to come. Perhaps their album.

"Fattish imbecile" did Rosie peek during her dustup with Trump.

Now that the baby is here, it's only a matter of days before the celebrity Maury show. Eddie Murphy you are.........

I've heard that Usher's lady was married with kids before they got together and now this.

Alanis Morissette is now on my list of funny people. Her version is now my pick for the next American Idol audition. I always avoided that song like the plague, I just knew the words would sicken me and I was right.

Posted by: petal | April 3, 2007 3:04 PM | Report abuse

The Alanis video is great. I had to wait until I got home to watch...damn websense.

As for Rosie, not a fan, but check out Apprarently she has good reason to go after Bill O'Reilly...he's trying to get her fired. Go figure.

Posted by: st. louis | April 3, 2007 7:22 PM | Report abuse

Bill O'Reilly just went up a few notches in my book.
