Go away Jesse James. When we say "Keep Austin Weird" we don't mean "add skanks."

How did the doctors miss the hole in the heart the FIRST time he was in the hospital?

How do you post bond BEFORE you get arrested?

Lindsey's dad is not competent enough to organize a theft of her passport. He can barely get into a decent twitter war.

I would be glad to retouch Jennifer Anniston because that would require pre-touching her.

Playboy's Unabashed Dictionary defines "a warning stroke" as "the last thing your left hand does before your 'Busty Cops 3' brain hemorrhage starts."

LiLo thinks her dad arranged to have her passport stolen? He's Michael Lohan, fer cryin' out loud, not Ernst Stavro Blofeld.

I think we see the words "Justin Bieber" waaaaay too often these days. On the other hand, we see the word "brained" far too seldom, so I think JeLi have struck a very nice balance here.

"Did Jennifer Aniston ask to be retouched in her latest movie?" No, Bret only imagined that was her in "Busty Cops 3." Probably the stroke talkin'.

"Parents Television Council objects to name of Twitter TV adaptation '$#*! My Dad Says'." Then they're really not going to like the name of my new web series, "Go F*** Yourselves With A Stick, Parents Television Council."

Sean Hayes to Paul Reubens: "I'm a bona-fide star of stage and screen."
Reubens: "I know you are, but what am I?"
Hayes: "Do you really want me to answer that?"

Memo to the Parents' Television Council: There's a sale on humor implants at Wal-Mart this week, I suggest you stock up.

Bret Michaels, if p@rn causes brain hemorrhage, you've just explained the decline of Western Civilization. And man, is the Parents' Television Council pissed!, because they thought they had the answer to that problem.

Lindsey, your desperation is showing. While I appreciate that you were wearing panties this time, I still don't like it. Get help!

George Lopez (seemingly) learns that, as with plastic surgery and vasectomies, it's never wise to go with the low bid on a paid-escort project.

ep, Brett Michaels first stroke was due to a brain hemorrhage and would have nothing to do with the "hole in the heart" otherwise known a a patent foramen ovale. Hemorrhages are due to things like aneurysms, high blood pressure etc. Doctors would not have had reason to look for the heart condition at that time. However, now he has had what sounds like a TIA (what they call a warning stroke). This is a different kind of stroke, an ischemic stroke, where blood is blocked to the brain by a clot or whatever. This can be caused by clots passing through the heart defect and going to the brain circulation. That's why it was looked for and found this time before he has a serious and more permanent Ischemic stroke. This guy has nine lives!

Liz, my De-Bieberizer is not working....

So Byoolin's a lefty. The things we learn here!

While my mind is below the belt, let me say that I'm relived -- so to speak -- that the story on Pee Wee Herman read that he's coming to, not on, Broadway.

Suge Knight accused of assault? When did he become a DIY thug? He used to contract out that stuff.

Valeri Bertinelli announces her engagement in AARP. I wonder if the swag bags at the wedding will contain erectile dysfunction and bladder control med samples.

LiLo says Dad stole her passport. Poor Lindsay, if only she had a dog to blame it on.

Since Tim Winter of the Parents Television Council is so upset about the use of naughty language on television, perhaps he wold be mollified if writers, producers, and actors used correct language instead of vulgar slang.

"Feces, My Dad Said!"

Reviewers could jump on the correct language bandwagon. For example, Tom Shales could write, "'Feces, My Dad Said!' felates Equus africanus asinus."

That's what Naomi Campbell gets for torturing people with telephones. She's also found out that blood diamonds are not a girl's best friend.

Sales of Busty Cops 3 just went through the roof.

Good for you Shiloh for being a "tough, tousled tomboy". Probably the only way to survive in that family, plus it makes a nice counterpart to the eternally annoying Brangelina.

I suggest either "Danecook My Dad Says" or "Celinedion Mon Père Dit."

"Pee-Wee Herman is coming to Broadway" -- But first, he has to stop by San Antonio to check the basement of the Alamo for his lost bike.

"Naomi Campbell may be subpoenaed by war crimes court" -- What the Hague is this about? Is braining someone with a cellphone that serious an offense? And I thought hands-free-cell-use-while-driving laws were strict.

"Simon Cowell opens up to Oprah about his depression" -- While depression is no laughing matter, something tells me that Oprah countered Simon about how she was even MORE depressed. In fact, she's probably trying right now to change the name of Zoloft to Zoprah.

"Penelope Cruz raises $333,000 for Haiti relief" -- Paging reddragon1! Seems the lovely Oscar winner is also a philanthropist. Either that or it's part of her long-term strategy to further distance any mentions of "Penelope Cruz" and "Vanilla Sky" in the same sentence. (Which,er, I guess I'm not helping, am I?)

It's about allegations that Naomi received a huge "blood diamond" from Liberian's brutal then-leader Charles Taylor. Nasty business.

I do wonder, though, if the future Mr. Naomi Campbell has registered yet for wedding gifts at Helmets-R-Us.

td, Naomi Campbell has been accused of accepting a blood diamond from some corrupt African dictator. Forget which one.

I was unaware that the Comments section to Celebritology is the hot new place to try out one's new stand-up shticks. Who knew?

This may well replace Lost Central as my "go-to" place once all of the hoopla ends after Sunday's show and Jimmy Kimmel's post-game wrap-up. I figure that'll be mid-week sometime.

Oops! We must have posted simultaneously, Nosy. :-)

Welcome to Lizard Island, pfallsgirl! Party at the tikibar to welcome new member.

Speaking of parties, did anyone go to the LOST cocktail hour last night?

Posted by: hodie2 | May 21, 2010 12:04 PM | Report abuse

td, you beat me to it on the Danecook My Dad Says!

Naomi Campbell has been denying this for weeks--obviously she just wants to keep the diamond. Her husband to be should be reminded that diamonds are extremely hard substances and he should duck accordingly.

I am baffled by Lilo's "logic"--if her Dad wants her here in LA, and in court, why on earth would he arrange to have her passport stolen before she can return? And does he even know where France is?

Welcome pfallsgirl! Anyone have the link to the lizard island unabashed dictionary for her?

Lizard Island Dictionary, July 18, 2008 4:57 PM:

Woods, Tiger
