Um, Gwynnie. We know your boobs are sagging down to your knees 'cuz you had kids and breastfed. It's time to cover up those suckers.

I think we all have moments where we say to ourselves 'if X happens I'm leaving this country... I give up' - usually involving things like presidents invoking secrets acts to protect absurd policies or seeing government dominated by lobbyist agendas like stuffing billion-dollar packet-sniffing projects into stimulus packages or stuffing Justice chock full o' RIAA lawyers... (not to mention some of the things some others have done)...

But if America ever comes to a point where we, as a nation, collectively, turn to Jimmy Fallon and say 'you, sir, are the voice of the people - what say you today' on THAT day America has jumped the shark.

Mandy Moore is hanging up her clothing line? I guess she'll have time now to focus on her first career...anybody remember what that was?


SJP in cloven toed boots? Nah, too easy.

Katherine Heigl, T.R. Knight leaving "Grey's Anatomy"...so now the show will move up to being merely unwatchable as opposed to being a total pile of cr@p.

Mickey Rourke and Courtney Love? Well they certainly won't win any awards for cutest couple.

I'm pretty sure that after the movie 'Taxi' came out, most Americans don't actually believe Jimmy Fallon thinks.

I betcha the new Sports Illustrated swimsuit cover girl has heard her share of "a guy walks into a Bar" jokes.


"Robert Pattison says stalker lost interest in his boring life." Don't worry, Bobby, it's a short slide from there to #1411 on the Forbes's Star Currency survey.


Yesterday the Huffington Post had a link on its front page to the video of Salma. Beside teh big red tab that said "ENTERTAINMENT", the caption read, "WATCH: Salma Hayek breastfeeds African baby". Classy all the way.


Where does the SJP pick place her with regard to Leviticus 11, 1-8? All I got from the following was a headache, that she is probably unclean, but she's obviously not the rock hyrax:

"Now the Lord spoke to Moses and Aaron, saying to them, "Speak to the children of Israel, saying, 'These are the animals which you may eat among all the animals that are on the earth: Among the animals, whatever divides the hoof, having cloven hooves and chewing the cud; that you may eat. Nevertheless these you shall not eat among those that chew the cud or those that have cloven hooves: the camel, because it chews the cud but does not have cloven hooves, is unclean to you; the rock hyrax, because it chews the cud but does not have cloven hooves, is unclean to you; the hare, because it chews the cud but does not have cloven hooves, is unclean to you; and the swine, though it divides the hoof, having cloven hooves, yet does not chew the cud, is unclean to you. Their flesh you shall not eat, and their carcasses you shall not touch. They are unclean to you.'"

Rules, rules, rules, man.


The only good thing about Mickey Rourke and Courtney Love dating is the nickname we can give them: MiCo RoLo.


"Jimmy Fallon, voice of America" - only marginally better than drunks chanting "USA! USA! USA!" at sporting events.

Bar Rafaeli...wonder why they picked her?

Just kiddin', she's beautiful but why do they have to preface it by saying "she looks intelligent"? No one looking at these shots cares if she is smart or not. I'm sure the one question on most guy's mind is "is she easy?".

Hey Sas, maybe Salma will take pity on a hungry little hairy cryptid!

Finally, proof that there are goats in SJP's family tree. I knew it!

Anyone watching AI? (I know...I admit it a very guilty pleasure) But who thinks Nadya and that crazy girl Tatiana are related? And Nadya denied trying to look like Angelina, by the way. She said something to the point of "the lips are mine and I have more important things to think about".

After Hodie and Jezebel's comments I feel compelled to say a word or two in defense of men.

Truthfully, "the one question" is not "is she easy?" The average man is not an idiot. (Actually, the average man *is* an idiot, but that's immaterial for our purposes.)

The average man recognizes that he has about as much of a chance of getting anywhere with the SI cover girl as he does of being elected God and therefore does not bother asking or wondering what the cover girl will or won't do. He just skips ahead to the part where he imagines her doing all of those things and calling him God.

(The average woman, for her part, knocks on the bathroom door and asks the average man if he's going to be in there all night.)

Dunno if they were above average. As Edith Wharton would say "they were different".
The nailing super model (or any other woman) theory depends on the super model/woman going through a difficult time which can result in:

1. Rebound sex
2. Revenge sex
3. Break the monotony sex
4. Boozy/druggie sex
5. Pity sex
6. Denial sex
7. Nervous breakdown sex
8. Rehab sex
9. Recovery sex

Wash, rinse, repeat. Oh, and there's a rumor that on rare occasions super models have sex to make babies. YMMV.

Dorkus, Captain Sully has a very dry wit (not that that's not a good thing). But Jeff Skiles, his co-pilot, seemed more extroverted and hilarious on Letterman last night. I thought that for the entire crew, appearing on the show may have been a form of therapy for them, Letterman handled it so well (and I'm not a major fan of his).

Sometimes it really pays to come late to the party. Once I saw those cloved-toed boots and the caption "Horsing around", I just knew the Lizards would be in rare form.

I'm guessing when that little Sierra Leonian boy grows up, he will have that shot of Salma Hayek's considerable "assets" blown up into a poster and carried with him everywhere. For the rest of his life.

In sharp contrast to Gwyneth Paltrow's alarmingly bony breastplate. Sheesh girl, eat something would you?

Oh god, I was so hoping the Clown Car Vagina's 15 minutes of fame were already over. Yeah, that's what she needs -- more fame and more money she didn't earn, just for being a whack job. Will she use the money from the reality show to implant a dozen more embryos via IVF?

The whole Rihanna/Chris Brown thing is very disturbing. I sure hope she dumps him and gets a restraining order ...

Hi guys,

Just got done having lunch with Salma Hayek. Let me wipe the milk off my mouth before I proceed.

Does Robert Pattison treat his audience as a bunch of stalkers?

Does anyone know whether Treasury will buy up Will Smith as part of the TARP toxic assets buyback?

I didn't know that Mandy Moore ran a consignment shop.

Who's face is Paul Stanley wearing?

Time to call a Code Blue on the careers of Katerine Heigl and T.R. Knight. If I were the Administrator, I'd have posted a DNR on both of them some time ago.

If the DA wants more evidence on Chris Brown, perhaps the DA should find out the name of the bimbo who texted the booty call to Brown's cell phone.

While we're on the subject of Booty Calls, what can we call those boots worn by SJP? Other than Camel Toe, that is? Is SJP trying to prove to us that she is not a horse?

Should I watch American Idol to see Tatiana? Only if Tatiana has nice ta-tas.

Good thing I fixed that toilet so Ms Snatchquatch has her own loo. Now she doesn't have to harangue me and disrupt my supermodel fantasies.

Does anyone know the lyrics to John Mayer's song to Jennifer Aniston? I'm guessing they're along the lines of "I'd rather be bottom to another man, butt you'll do me fine."

If Mickey Rourke and Courtney Love had a kid, they kid would be the future star of "The Hills Have Eyes: Next Generation."

Nadya Suleman wants her own reality series? Fine. I got a storyboard for her. The show is called "Family Services 911." it airs truTV. on It depicts overworked and under resourced family services professionals dealing with overbreeding wackos." Following, "Family Serices 911," truTV airs a reality show starring Nadya Suleman. It's called "Who Wants to Get a Hysterectomy?"

Nosy, I think that the municipality where Octomom lives should sue her to gain control of any money she makes from any publicity. the municipality can use that money to place all 14 kids in homes with more nearly normal parents.

Posted by: sasquatchbigfoot | February 11, 2009 4:06 PM | Report abuse

The octopuplet story just gets worse and worse. Two, perhaps three, of her previous six children have disabilities (at least one is autistic). She's collecting state money for the disabilities children, food stamps, and Kaiser is applying to MediCal (more state money) to defray what will probably top a million dollars in medical bills for the preemie pups, so already "we" are paying for this fiasco. Since the amount of care required for children with disabilities is easily double those without, her previous children were already neglected in my book. Now add eight that need simultaneous feeding and diapering. It makes me angry. What's also sad is that our collective anger at the mother means the children will suffer. We don't want HER to benefit. Perhaps a reality show will be a good thing--once it's revealed she can't possibly take proper care of any of them even with the benefits of reality show, and more of her delusional personality is revealed, the solution to make it right is taking them away from her and giving them to the good homes that will clamor for it.

Sigh. Octomom makes me sad. She's unhinged (and notice my earlier, she wants to be Angelina comment has made it to mainstream media - I do think there is a connection).

Octomom unhinged, children without any father at all, mad scientist enabling unhinged mom, and 14 little children either growing up poor and neglected by overwhelmed, unhinged mom -- or growing up exploited and as circus freaks (or objectified like the Dionne quints), again by unhinged, explotative mom.

I don't think adoption is the answer - nor is having a lot of children the problem - it's the instability of the mom, the lack of adult relationships and the belief that she is doing more than other parents - I think she's meglomanical. Like Angelina.
