Divorce? Did I miss the renewal of vows? Will Madonna sing "Frozen" at the hearing? Will "Swept Away" be listed as the reason in court papers?

What's wrong with Bud Light? It's not like Mischa was drinking Natty Boh or PBR or Wiedemann's. Sheesh Liz, you're such a beer nob.

Mel Gibson's new BFF Britney Spears should replace him in "Lethal Weapon 5" as "unhinged cop" Martina Riggs. Couldn't be any worse than "Crossroads."

Janet's appearance in DC tonight will be sponsored by Pepto Bismol. Pink ponchos will be provided for anyone in the front row (y'know, just in case).

With all due respect to td, jake and others, and none to Mischa Barton, Bud Light is not "bad" beer. Bud Light is what comes out of a cat after it drinks bad beer.

Dennis O'Leary lacks one of those filters we have in our brains that prevents what we actually think from being said. A form of autism?

hodie, I thought the same thing about Gary Coleman.

I generally enjoy Dennis Leary's comedy, but the autism thing went a little too far. (Although I kind of agree with WDC about the ADD thing)

Yes there was a Lethal Weapon 4, it had Jet Li in it. They still should have stopped after 2.

I like Bud Light, but then again I'm still only a few years out of college so it might just be a nostalgia thing. It's cheap and girls will drink it.

jakeepoo,
Why would say that?? St. Louis has about 20 local brew pubs where you can find locally brewed beer or any other type of beer you want.
I have been all over the world and to every state in the U.S. and even in the middle of New Mexico, Nebraska, Vermont, etc., you can find just about any type of beer you want.
Don't perpetuate the stereotype that the Midwest does not have anything! That was true 30 years ago, but in this modern day of the Internet, satellite TV, cheap (comparatively) air travel, etc., the world is a much smaller place and cities are surprisingly similar.

Posted by: Anonymous | October 15, 2008 9:44 AM | Report abuse

Dennis Leary just wants to sell books so he makes pub by saying s**t like that. Of course, he will soon say he's sorry and really meant the rising tide of autism diagnosii, not autism itself and go on to host a fund raiser with JM. And sell a bunch o' books in the meantime.

For all you scared Gerard Butler fans out there - I watched E! News last night and they used the Gerard Butler/Shanna Moakler pic as an example of how false rumors get started. Apparently, E! News people were at his restaurant too. They said that Shanna and Gerard were old friends, that they sat together and talked closely but did not kiss, and that Shanna came and went with a girlfriend, with whom she spent most of the night dancing with. So, I breathed easier after hearing that!
