$91.5 milion isn't the only thing about Madonna that's gross.


How can Britney top the 2008 list when it's only 12/2? Lizards, this is your chance to shine: google the hell out of "Liz Kelly."


Tina Fey facial scar: third-grade knife fight. She won.


As Ivana Trump separates from her fourth husband, Liz Taylor looks over her shoulder. And then at the pool boy, just in case she needs a buffer.


Bryan Adams? Obsessed fans? Really? Well, it's nice that he's finally found something other than the CRTC's Canadian content regulations to complain about.

"Lizards, this is your chance to shine: google the hell out of 'Liz Kelly.'"

See, now, you've touched on the heart of the problem. Britney Spears is #1 with people who still think Yahoo is a good search engine. I'm sure Liz Kelly is tops at Google.

Its so nice to see that Naomi Campbell has found her soul-mate

Posted by: sjcpeach | December 2, 2008 9:19 AM | Report abuse

I'm sure the Google suggested searches for Britney are along the lines of

britney
britney spears
britney spears crazy mother
britney spears no underpants
britney spears pregnant sister
britney spears dysfunctional

Whereas my first search for Liz Kelly brought me "The Rosary by Liz Kelly" and the second was some Catholic jazz singer. (Celebritology Liz was third and fourth.) Let's get cracking. Repeat after me: "Liz is Number One..."

Bryan Adams has obsessed fans? Is Mrs. David Letterman and/or John Cusack's stalker loose again? Or is it really Kirsten Dunst?

"Mario Lopez set to host Miss America pageant" -- was Dustin Diamond unavailable?

"Miley Cyrus says she'd love to work with Annie Leibovitz again" -- and Annie Leibovitz says, "no effin' way babe."

"Paris Hilton hunting for label to release her second album" -- I vote for the people who used to put 45s on the back of Honey Comb cereal boxes.

"Former UCLA medical worker pleads guilty to selling celebrity medical records" -- perhaps instead he could sell Paris Hilton's new record.

Britney Spears tops list of 2008 Yahoo Internet searches

What really makes me wonder is, since I did NOT look for Brit online this year, who's been searching for her twice as much as the average?

The Lizards are on a roll this morning!

Whew. Good job.

Enthusiastically yours,

Tip:

If left to dry on a computer monitor, oatmeal and yogurt spit is a deamon to remove. Use a non-static cleaning wipe at once to clean residue.

Re photo at top of Paz Vega, Scarlett Johansson and Eva Mendes:

Looks like each one has had her teeth capped or veneered. My question is this: Since when did looking like one could eat corn-on-the-cob through a picket fence become a standard of beauty? Ick.

Boy George could have saved himself and the authorities a whole lot of trouble by simply taking the precaution of password protection on his computer. Then he could go back to hand cuffing and whipping for fun and recreation, rather than vigilante justice.

The Beckhams gave Katie Holmes a standing ovation at her play and Tom Cruise is building them a replica of the LA Lakers’ Staples Centre basketball court in their garden.

So what do you think he's giving Barbara Walters for naming him the 9th most fascinating person for 2008?

"Paris Hilton hunting for label to release her second album."

Department of Homeland Security reports that the heads of all record labels have been moved to a secure location to prevent the release of this WMD.

A gift pass to the Scientology celebrity facility in Hollywood, with compulsory attendance?

Since people became so obsessed with celebrities that normal teeth, normal levels of body fat and cellulite, and the normal wrinkles of time became unacceptable. Hence we now have picket fence teeth, Callista Flockhart figures and Kenny Rogers faces.

Bryan Adams, perhaps the cops were not the people you should have called about the obsessed fans. Ripley's Believe it or Not springs to mind.

Umm, Boy George, it is still unlawful imprisonment if they are restrained -- even if you don't hurt them.

Yes, Miley go back for my creepy pictures taken by Leibovitz where you look molested and/or have an skeevy relationship with your dad. The first ones were received so well.

"No break-up on the horizon, says Lilo."
And the countdown begins ... Lilo/SamRo's toast.

Tina Fey's hubby sounds like a keeper, although let's hope he's better at composing music than composing sentences.

Kirsten,
This has all been a terrible misunderstanding. Let's talk. You have my number unless you've washed the blood off your bedroom wall already.

That didn't happen to be the Lindbergh baby's blood, did it, yellojkt?

Miley Cyrus, please give Liz a call about your new career: licking the fixtures in a Extended Stay Suites.

No disrespect, but is that Tina Turner or a bottle-blonde Al Sharpton in drag?

Oh, and mad props to Reuters for taking an unflattering photograph of Scarlett Johansson - that takes talent!

I always thought the Lindbergh baby was stolen via a ladder through the bedroom window, thus inspiring a whole economy consisting of little ladder keychains etc.
Perhaps even ladder xmas tree ornaments.

Ya'all want some good news today? No, we have not vaulted Liz Kelly to the top of the google rankings -- yet. Patrick Swayze has released a statement that the tabloid reports of the cancer spreading are untrue. He is still responding well to treatment. So keep that Lizard Love heading his way as he continues the "good fight."

OMG those pix of Tina Turner in the 2008 redux Mad Max costume were hilarious. I love you Tina, but that outfit, along with the Conan the Barbarian dude in the background ... I guffawed. Thank you Liz Kelly for finding this stuff for us. You rock.

Good one possum, but I think it is a ruse to meet hot chicks.

Tina Turner, hope I have gams like you when I get that age but the silver Mad Maxx wig has got to be burned. She looks a little befuddled in that picture also.

TomKat to blend with the Beckhams? So is Scientology also into kink?

When they blend, would the Cruises and the Beckhams become the Bruise-hams?

And would they move the compound to Utah or Arizona?

Oh god they will move the compound to Guyana. Hey everyone! Kool-Aid being served on the verandah!

I'd like inform you that Scarlett Johansson (actress)actually is a clone from original person,who has nothing with acting career.Clone was created illegally using stolen biomaterial.Original Scarlett Galabekian last name is nice, CHRISTIAN young lady.I'll tell more,those clones(it's not only 1)made in GERMANY-world leader manufacturer of humans clones,it's in Ludwigshafen am Rhein,Rhineland-Palatinate,Mr.Helmut Kohl home town.You can't even imaging the scale of the cloning activity.But warning,H.Kohl staff strictly controlling their clones spreading around the world,they're NAZI type disciplined and mind controlled,be careful get close with clones you will be controlled too.Original family didn't authorize any activity with stolen biomaterials,no matter what form it was created in,it's all need to be back to original family control in Cedars-Sinai MedicalCenter in LA.Controlling clones is US military operation.Original Scarlett never was engaged,by the way
