"Hanes drops Charlie Sheen ads..."

and signs Tiger Woods, because if anyone is a good spokesman for making you want to change your underwear...

"David Hasselhoff leaving "America's Got Talent"..."

Actually, I think this one speaks for itself.

"Gary Coleman hospitalized after "slight" seizure."

Doctors recommend resting at least two weeks before Coleman is fit to resume wrestling the taco.

Heidi Klum launching a maternity wear line - at least she's got plenty of experience!

Khloe Kardashian ready to have kids. G-d spare us, please!

What's a Taylor Lautner and why is he paid so much money?

Natalie, be glad you have the luxury of choice.

I'm beginning to think Tiger Woods has joined Joaquin Phoenix, wherever he is.

Roman, that's not how our justice system works. We don't generally recognize home detention in luxe Swiss chalets as time served, either. Quit whining, man up and face the music, you creep.

Funny, Charlie Sheen has been dropping Hanes for years.

Natalie Portman's statements brightens my hopes for casting her in the unrated sequel to 'Closer' that I am writing. Trust me, it's a very un-Jewish role.

Hanes drops Charlie Sheen ads.

I hear that underwear Umar is still available.


Polaroid hires Lady Gaga as creative director.

Earth to Lady Gaga: Polaroid doesn't make Polaroids any more because digital cameras rendered them obsolete.


Sylvester Stallone broke his neck filming fight scene.

Sly's 63 now, so maybe he should start acting his age.

Hanes drops Charlies Sheen - not because of the Christmas Day incident but because the ads were stupid.

Polaroid - before you commit to Lady Gaga, see the Hanes ads with Charlie Sheen.

Yeah, Roman, that sentenced in absentia worked so well last time. The state of California is not THAT stupid (well, I don't think so anyway).

Can the state take the dogs rather than any of those choices? Please appoint a guardian ad litem for them.

Is it true that Hanes hired the "Chicken Of The Sea" guy to fire Sheen? "Sorry, Charlie."


"David Hasselhoff leaving 'America's Got Talent.'" And yet, America's still got exactly as much talent as it had before...


"Katherine Heigl returns to 'Grey's Anatomy.'" Okay, well maybe not *exactly* as much.


"Miley Cyrus says public focuses on negativity." Put another way, having long ago figured out that sex sells, now she knows what runs a close second.


"Natalie Portman says she doesn't like playing Jewish roles." I'm sure I speak for many of us when I say we'd like to see more of her Gentiles, then.


Gary Coleman's a little under the weather right now. Seems he had a little seizure, but he'll be okay after a little rest. He'll be back to work in a little while.

You were expecting George Clooney, maybe?

Hanes drops Charlie Sheen, but he was the perfect spokesman for wife beaters.


David Hasselhoff leaving "America's Got Talent"... Apparently he couldn't live up to the title of the show.


Gary Coleman hospitalized after "slight" seizure. Doctors said it was just a tiny blockage and he should experience little difficulty as rehab will likely be short.

Nosy:

I'll just be happy if he'd start acting.


So, I'm a complete bundle of nerves and I need to be distracted for the next 11 hours or so. Hook'em!

Carm down, Dorkus. It's not as though the game's being preempted for the State of the Union message.

I still don't know what a "kardashian" is or why it has a TV show.

Or why its interest in spawning is of interest to anyone.

What kind of award would Mariah Carey with for acting, the "Thank you for staying off the screen" award?

Yeah Nosy, I'm trying to be calm. I'm even doing some work to distract myself. But it's probably a losing battle, wouldn't you agree ep?

Plus, the fact that we are about to be colder than Antarctica isn't helping things.

jaybub,
it's important because we all need to prepare ourselves. kardashian spawning is one of the signs of the apocalypse.

ot, but did anyone else ever notice how closely spelling-related the words apocalypse and calypso are? hmmmm.

Posted by: dablues1 | January 7, 2010 11:06 AM | Report abuse

dablues, "calypso" in the sense of the Siren) and apocalypse have the same Greek root; "calypso" the Caribbean music has a different etymology. Oh, the fun of online dictionaries (sure beats working).

Posted by: Nosy_Parker | January 7, 2010 11:25 AM | Report abuse

And yet I've always had a sneaking suspicion that the apocalypse will have a soundtrack full of calypso music.

Roman Polanski asks to be sentenced in absentia...
- First he asks for assylum in Swizterland and now sentencing in Absentia... how many places do we have to send this guy?

Casey Johnson died in "rat infested" home...
- Perhaps those were her pets. They probably ate better than her dogs did.

Shout out and lots of good energy to Artie Lange and his mom. Let's hope Artie gets the help he desparately needs.

I wonder if Hanes will let Gilbert Arenas have a shot at the spokesman role.

"Hanes drops Charlie Sheen ads"

Absolutely NO justification/tolerance of domestic violence, but at least some good came out of it.

Malcolm says Coleman was in town to meet with producers of his latest film about removing a brief scene of frontal nudity that Coleman says was unauthorized.

Producers say there is only a little nudity. Coleman says "Wha'tch you talkin about, Willis!"

I have always suspected that Kate had retractable hair. She very much used to resemble an old doll I had that allowed you to make her hair grow longer by pulling it. When you take scissors to it, it looks just like Kate's old do.

Looking forward to seeing Lady Gaga's next outfit made from old Polaroid pics.

Yes Miley, that is a sad fact of life you recently realized.

Sas, I'm wondering if, in the wake of l'affaire Arenas, the Wizards will restore their old team name.

Posted by: Nosy_Parker | January 7, 2010 1:18 PM | Report abuse

Dorkus, dealing with crazy clients is a great distractor. I may not make it much longer though.

Can we PLEASE retire the term "wife beater" for a certain form of undershirt? It just turns domestic violence into a fashion statement.

Given their role models, it's not surprising the Kartrashians want to produce even more offspring to add to one of the world's most dysfunctional families. I think the matriarch may have surpassed Octomom at this point, the only difference being she didn't have all of the offspring at once.

That is a gene pool that *really* needs some chlorine.

Posted by: Californian11 | January 7, 2010 1:43 PM | Report abuse

hodie, you seem to have inside knowledge on what happens when you cut a doll's hair. just sayin.

Nosy & sas, be interesting to see what the Wizards can do without their "big guns."

Posted by: reddragon1 | January 7, 2010 1:43 PM | Report abuse

OMG, just read the cast of Sly's movie includes: Stone Cold Steve Austin, 45, Arnold Schwarzenegger, 62, Bruce Willis, 54, Dolph Lundgren, 52, Mickey Rourke, 57, Jet Li, 46, as well as relative youngster Jason Statham, 37

How many orthopods & ambulances were on set while making this testosterone-fest for the midlife crisis crowd???

ep, I am with you on the t-shirt thing. Sleeveless T shirts might be a "fashion statement" on someone like the waifish, underage-looking, uber-British Emma Watson, but on the Neaderthals who usually sport them, not so much.

reddragon, not sure what you're implying...? Apparently there is a euphemism I didn't know about.

LOL Cali, I was thinking the same thing. But that is the point of "The Expendables"--they're all past their sell-by date so their respective governments don't care if they survive.

Having said that, I can't believe Jet Li is 46. Big Statham fan here. So I'll check it out. It sounds like it will be exactly like the actioners these guys were in back in the day, which will be weirdly nostalgic!

Given the Wizards' record over the past 20+ years, they don't deserve their old name. Some possible substitutes include:

Blanks
Rubber Bullets
Air Pistols
Popguns
Nerf Pellets
Loozers
Slackers
No-Dee
Dribblers
Bricks
Foul Shots
