Bynes back after just 1 month? Heck, I have had summer colds that go longer than that!

Pigeon Poop? Worst excuse since Jared told his teacher, "My harddrive crashed before I could save my term paper!"

And in accordance with td's wishes, I will not comment on who know whom.

"Amanda Bynes has 'unretired' from acting via Twitter after a month long absence" -- Bynes, Bynes. Kids show way way back in the early 200s maybe? Help me out. Bynes? Not ringing any bells.

"Lindsay Lohan ... has made some friends in prison" -- And they're making a movie together! See, Lindsay goes to jail and meets another convict who looks just like her! And they have the same birthday! Working title, "The Prison Trap."

"Former teen idol Tiffany defends Miley Cyrus" -- Defending her is fine, Tiff. Just don't give her the name of your plastic surgeon.

"Kim Kardashian begs fan not to get plastic surgery to look like her" -- Unless she REALLY wants to win the prize at Halloween for the scariest costume.

"Has Paris Hilton been surgically enhanced?" -- So THAT'S why Oscar Goldman escorted her to that party. I was wondering why she kept tucking her hair behind her ear anytime someone was trying to tell her something from the next room.

"Lindsay Lohan to make post-jail comeback film" -- (See above comment.)

My wishes, Elias?

I think Amanda Bynes will find the acting world she left is vastly different than the one she returns to.


Never before has the phrase "She has made some friends" sounded so ominous.


"Reality star Alexis Neiers released from prison." Very cute, Ms. Hughes - picking one of your friends' names and putting it up here in Celebritology like they're some kind of celebrity.


"Kim Kardashian begs fan not to get plastic surgery to look like her." It totally messes up KK's plans to get surgery to look like her fan.


Pigeon poop? Really? You think the Pistols or The Who or Ozzy or Zep - or even James Effing Taylor, for cryin' out loud - would be stopped by pigeon poop? Time to turn in any doumentation that identifies you as a "rock band".

Can we have a moratorium on Lohan related news until the main newsmaker in that family gets out of jail? Kthnx.

ep, td, what's in a name? That which we call a snark. By any other name it would sting as well.

Kings of Leon re-write hit song lyrics from pigeon point of view:

You know that I could poop on somebody
Some one like you.

Alfred Molina will star in "Law & Order: Los Angeles."

Because even great actors sometimes enjoy a steady paycheck. See: Waterston, Sam; Orbach, Jerry.


Has Paris Hilton been surgically enhanced?

I'm only surprised it didn't happen sooner. But why didn't she get rhinoplasty as well while under anesthesia?


Did mold kill Brittany Murphy and husband?

Alas, if only Doc Hodie were still making house calls on Lizard Island, we could ask how plausible an aggravating factor this might be.


Kate Winslet's rumored rebound guy is a cute model.

Cute isn't inherently bad (she drooled), but for Kate and her children's sake let's hope he's as nice and respectful as he is hawt.


From "In Entertainment" in the lefthand column, the article "Caramoor festival scores with Donizetti rarity" relates a last-minute boffo step-in by an understudy that's the stuff of show biz legend:

Shades of Shirley MacLaine filling in for an ailing Carol Haney in the original "Pajama Game" on Broadway.


Shout-out to the handsomely distinguished Robert David Hall (coroner Dr. Al Robbins on "CSI" mothership), and an ASL greeting to Oscar-winner (and erstwhile DWTS hottie) Marlee Matlin, both in town today for 20th anniversary celebration of the Americans with Disabilities Act. Remember that being able-bodied is at best a temporary condition.

I bet some of those bats Ozzy used to bite off were scared poopless.

Amanda Byrnes is playing Lilo's lawyer? (Sorry ep. I know you wanted to do it.)

I'll back off on Miley now that Tiffany has defended her. Who could argue with that kind of gravitas.

Nosy, I like Paris Hilton's nose. The rest of her is another matter. Nothing plastic surgery can fix, tho.

Where is Jen Chaney. Did she disappear with Mark Ruffalo?

Pigeon Poop would not be that great a name for a rock band.

Kate Winslet: You go girl. Have fun.

Didn't Paris Hilton already have rhinoplasty, resulting in her messed-up wonky left eye?

When a guy makes new friends in prison, he doesn't always know what he looks like.

Elias, your snark observation would depend upon whether the snark truly be a snark. If, as Lewis Carroll notes, the snark is a boojum, everything changes.

Perhaps the Kings of Leon were playing something like this when the pigeons unloaded:

Beware the Jabberwock, my son! The jaws that bite, the claws that catch! Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun the frumious Bandersnatch!
