Tom Cruise, "Mission: Unwatchable," more like.


Susan Boyle: Scotland's answer to Amy Winehouse.


Is it uncharitable to hope that instead of announcing a divorce, Jon and Kate each grace us with uncannily accurate impressions of R. Budd Dwyer's most famous press conference?


The creepiest thing about Morgan Freeman having an affair with his own step-granddaughter would have to be when she yells, "Oh, grandpa!" during sex.


"Walter Cronkite seriously ill." And that's the way it is.


"What's up London?" - Maybe Britney should check out of hotels that refuse to install maps in her room.

Or maybe the creepiest thing about Morgan Freeman having an affair with his own step-granddaughter is knowing that when most girls reach into their Gramps' pockets, they're looking for candy.


Or maybe the creepiest thing about Morgan Freeman having an affair with his own step-granddaughter is that after most tickle fights, Grandpa doesn't have an erection.

Eww, ick nast. Morgan Freeman has out Woodied Woody Allen.

One more shot at losing Heincer in the jungle. Can the Heigl thing go too?

Ashton Kutcher needs to read tweets, especially the ones on Iran, instead of just sending pictures of Demi's butt.

Mickey got his hair all done up in a messy bun, put on his moob shirt and hangs out with the guys. Or, hangs out his guys.

General thank you to the Lizards. I found a few minutes to read yesterday's comments, which included a mention of "Fabulous Baker Boys." It was the answer to a question at trivia last night, and contributed to our impressive win.

So where should I send the $0.06 I figure you're each entitled to?

SPLOOT! Paging the Lindbergh baby...


Carrie Prejean threatens to sue Miss California organization if she doesn't get an apology.

Or failing that, maybe one from David Letterman, since he's in practice lately.


From the Cronkite article: According to Mediabistro's blog, TVNewser, [CBS] began updating his obituary more than a week ago.

Now THAT's harsh. BTW, did anyone else notice that he was missing from this year's New Year's Day Vienna Philharmonic Concert on PBS for the first time in probably over a quarter century? Not that Julie Andrews didn't do a fine job, but for some of us it's just not New Year's without Uncle Walter.

Carrie Prejean -- your 15 minutes of fame were up hours ago! Go away, now!

Jon & Kate -- not a surprise but really not something you would announce on TV. Don't you have a publicist who could issue a discreet statement?

Geez, PacNW, stop shouting. Get your angry ass on down to Voodoo Doughuts and have a nice relaxing Portland Cream.

None of us here read any other part of WaPo except Elizabeth (DON'T CALL ME LIZ) Kelly's thing here. We're pretty pretty sure she's not a washed up neocon hack, even if her silence on the whole Ensign thing is alarming.

Looks more like a steer to me.


Walter Cronkite seriously ill.

Perhaps Hodie can help us out here, but the article says "gravely ill," which is far more severe than just "seriously" in terms of parlance and prognosis, isn't it, Doc?

ep, I cannot top "out-Woodied" and it has to be the Comment of the Week.

If ScarJo stars in "Bride of Frankenstain" remake I will have to watch. Assume Rourke will play Frank.

Also re Rourke, I predicted his sliminess in yesterday's live chat for all you slackers who didn't read it. Course that wasn't very hard.

Lizard Island Network announces new political Sunday Morning talkshow featuring noted political analyst Carrie Prejean (neo-con hack) and Ashton Kutcher (foreign policy expert). The show is to be called "Twit-Countertwit."

Posted by: reddragon1 | June 19, 2009 11:22 AM | Report abuse

Iran believes Ashton Kutcher should stay out of the United States.

Mickey Rourke is just slouching. What's worse -- that or the view of Glenn Close lying in bed in "Fatal Attaction" with her own pecs sliding apart sideways?

mouse4, congratulations. You may send the full amount of your Baker Boys win via check to me, c/o Elizabeth Kelly, Washington Post. (Now I have to sit down again. Michelle, Michelle, sigh. . . . where were we?)

I don't even have to read the Morgan Freeman story because byoolin's already IckNasted me enough with his commentary.

And I have to say I'm less annoyed with Britney's "What's up, London?" than I usually would be. After blasting Whitney Houston's "I love you, Trinidad!" so much (when she was actually in Tobago), I decided to have pity on celebrities who tour so much they stop knowing where the heck they are after a while.

You're right, Nosy. A grave prognosis usually means dying. I think it's cool he is doing his own obit. We had to write our own in college (many years ago). Guess I should update mine.
I had no idea Walter Cronkite was already 92. I hope he is not suffering.

Looks like Mickey Rourke already got 'em.

In Budd Dwyer's case, the "Sploot!" came after the "BANG!"

Courtney Love does not defy explanation. She simply needs another round of de-tox.

Byoolin writes: "...when most girls reach into their Gramps' pockets, they're looking for candy."

Ahh, Byoo, have you forgotten that classic blues tune "Candy Man," by Mississippi John Hurt?

Don't stand close to the candy man

Courtney Love appears to have had a crow fly into and impale her head, sort of like those witch in a telephone-pole decorations at Halloween.

I just have to say, "Johnny Depp is h-h-h-hawt!" That is on the record folks.

Courtney Love actually looks better in those photos than she has for quite some time and since we can't hear what she is saying, it's all the better. Although the weird dead bird on her head leaves one to wonder...

Re Budd Dwyer - had to look that one up. How sad is that? I learn so much here.

Second that "Peace" to Walter Cronkite and family.
And in a similar vein, Friday love to the Swayze.

What's JLH's advice exactly? Go on vacation with fiancee, claim you love your body when photos hit the tabloids, then lose a boatload of weight and break off yet another engagement?

not exactly. a recent interview w/simon cowell has him explaining that she can perform when she wants, no specific requirement that she shows up. he said that he understands she had some emotional difficulties and is working through them. not quite the same as being a moronic drunk and drug user, one would think.
