Victoria Secret Model replaces Meghan Fox in Transformers. Proof that acting is not required for this role.

I thought Wyclef Jean was a humanitarian.

"Tina Fey tapped to receive Mark Twain humor award." Oh, shut up, guy who asked every single bloody chat on WaPo yesterday it was too soon. If you care so much, write a letter to Mr. Twain.


So, Bono, Mindy McCready, and David Hasselhoff all walk into a hospital...


Yo, Tiger, is that an "oxygen-therapy room" in the David Carradine sense of the word?


"Lindsay Lohan offered role in upcoming Willie Nelson movie." She's a good-hearted woman in a film with a good-timing man.


"Google Pac-Man allegedly sucked up 4.8 million hours of productivity." And another 8 today while I check the math.


"Really? Because the way you fought off Catherine to do my arm, I thought you were game for anything." Michael Douglas rebuts Danny DeVito

Tom Cruise opens up about his relationship with his father, couch jumping.

Liz and Jen, you left out the most snarkable part: It's from Esquire's cover article, "How to Be a Man."


Angry rant: woman goes off on station for broadcasting weather report during "Criminal Minds" finale.

While apparently in this case there was legitimate concern re tornados (no joking matter), who among us hasn't ever gotten royally pi$$ed off at excessive cut-ins for gratuitous and prolonged weather coverage, just because local stations are trying to one-up one another.

Why does he look disturbingly like a mass-murderer? Ick nast.

I can absolutely relate to the "Criminal Minds" lady. Love that show. Who needs to worry about tornadoes or whatever? Give us some twisted sadistic serial killers any day!

What, no mention of Ann Curry's graduation speech error? And I was all ready.

"Tom Cruise opens up about his relationship with his father, couch jumping" -- I didn't realize the two were related. The Mapother househould must've gone through dozens of plastic slipcovers during the 60s and 70s.

"Tina Fey tapped to receive Mark Twain humor award" -- Well, if the short list also contained Dane Cook, Sarah Silverman and Chelsea Handler, then they made the right choice.

"Jackson family fires longtime nanny Grace Rwaramba" -- Infuriating! Unless Jo Frost is on tap to replace her, I am not happy with those Jacksons right now.

"Bono released from hospital after emergency spinal surgery" -- I, I feel a SONG coming on!:

Is he getting better?
Or does he feel much pain?
Will it make it easier on him now?
Or will he need a cane?
You say

One back
One spine
When it's one need
To align
One back
We get to bear it
Hurts you baby if you
Don't care for it

(Where's mdreader01 when you need a good song parody?)

"Google Pac-Man allegedly sucked up 4.8 million hours of productivity"

Pfft, like I need Pac Man to waste time at work. That's what Celebritology, Cracked & I Can Has Cheezburger is for!

TD, nice job on the song. Perhaps you'd like to take a crack (*ahem*) at "Backache, Bloody Backache" as well.

Lose Lost, already - it's over.

Just for you, byoolin:

I can't believe my back today
Oh, I need Demerol, the pain must go away
How long, how long must my body ache?
How long? How long?
'Cause today I can go lie down, today

Tearing ligaments on MRIs
Herniated discs compress my size
No, I won't leave the spinal ward
I'll keep my back down
Keep my back down against a board

Backache, Bloody Backache
Backache, Bloody Backache
Backache, Bloody Backache

Well done, again.

As for your Demerol & MRI requirements, may I suggest you & the rest of the band see our very own Hodie The Roadie.

I might be in danger of losing my celebritology credentials. I don't recognize about 90% of the names in this morning's post.

I do, however, think that hairy guy in the picture needs to button his shirt. Ew. That is just not a good look for a guy.

Sploot!
Wyclef Jean, Family Planner to the Stars.

Okay, so just haven't gotten on the Tina Fey love train. I just feel like the Mark Twain prize people are (a little belatedly) jumping on the Sarah-Palin-mocking/30 Rock bandwagon. She can write funny one-liners but so can most Celebritologists. Show me a body of work and we'll talk (I don't mean that literally. I don't play on that team. Not that there's anything wrong with that.). However, I am NOT the person who posted the question in every chat yesterday; I don't care THAT much!
