How Tiger Woods' "actions" have affected his golf game: then, he was 18 or 19 women over par in the marriage, now, he's 18 or 19 over par on the links. Seems like a pretty direct relationship.


Results of Mel Gibson investigation: yep, pretty much everything after "Mad Max" was crap.


Timbaland denies being suicidal over the watch... but is getting close to homicidal every time a friend says, "Yo, Timba, what time is it?"


So someone complained about the Cake Boss' frosting?

Hurry up, Jean-Luc. We learned our lesson and are not going to spend all night waiting for Godard.


"Want to be in Justin Bieber's 3-D movie?" Depends: does the word "snuff" appear anywhere in its synopsis?

'parently Tiger is looking for more "action."

Miley is single again. Can it be any accident that this is right next to news on how Lilo is loose?

It is so cool, and not surprising, that Jean-Luc Godard is MIA.

If John McCain and Lady Gaga can be a couple, I don't see why the Pope and Susan Boyle can't...oh, wait, the vow thing.

The idea of a Unisex "the View" makes my brain hurt. Who would be the lead host, Carson Kressley?

Re the honorary Oscars, don't forget film legend Eli Wallach. He's the real reason "6 Degrees of Kevin Bacon" is so successful, because Bacon was in a film with him. So the game could just as plausibly have been titled "5 Degrees of Eli Wallach." BTW, he and Anne Jackson have been married to one another almost 62½ years, which must be approaching some kind of record for two major actors:

"The View" creators plan unisex spinoff.

Starring Julia Sweeney's character Pat?

So Tiger hasn't mentioned if he'll be taking up with any of his harem again now that he's single, eh? Or has all the polish worn off them now?

Interesting insight into Dame Helen Mirren from the "My Goodness" column in yesterday's "Slate" (I wonder if she buys her bikinis this way, too!):
http://www.slate.com/id/2264932


When on vacation, Dame Helen Mirren (who almost always looked fatigued and rumpled as Detective Chief Inspector Jane Tennison on Prime Suspect) often buys her holiday [vacation, in British English ] clothes from charity shops. She picks up outfits from thrift stores when she reaches her destination.

The Academy Award-winning actress told the Toronto Sun, "I love a good charity shop, especially when I'm traveling. When I'm going to cold places, I take nothing—just underwear. On my way from the airport I ask the driver to take me to a good charity shop, and I buy boots, socks, trousers, sweaters, hats and scarves—usually for 30 pounds."

The actress doesn't keep those boots and scarves. "On the way back to the airport, I have it all in a big bag and drop it off at another charity shop."

Emmy snub? How about Katey Sagal this season in Sons of Anarchy? That omission was more egregious than the entire list combined!

"Miley Cyrus and her ... co-star ... have split up" -- I didn't even know they were dating. How Liz Taylor of her.

"Remy Gonzalez, co-star of TLC's 'Cake Boss,' has been arrested on sexual assault charges." -- Does TLC stand for Tabloid Loser Channel? First the Gosselins, now Remy. Will Remy be on "Dancing with the Stars" next season, then?

"Francis Ford Coppola will receive an honorary Oscar" -- It's about time someone recognized the brilliance of "The Godfather: Part III" and gave that man a statuette. His directing of his daughter (what's her name? Sofia?) was masterful.

"The original Kermit the Frog takes up residence at the Smithsonian Natural Museum of American History" -- Getting slime all over Archie Bunker's Chair too.

"Did 'Mad Men' go too far with Sally Draper's ma_____on scene?" -- I didn't realize "Mad Men" was a reference to the writing and production staff. Gross.

"Susan Boyle will sing for Pope Benedict XVI during UK tour" -- Whose tour, hers or his? For a second I thought you meant her. I could just see His Holiness, sitting in the front row wearing his miter and carrying a homemade sign saying (in German), "I Dreamed a Dream I'd See You Sing Live Someday!" ignoring the cries of "down in front" from behind him.

"The original Kermit the Frog takes up residence at the Smithsonian Natural Museum of American History"

Heck, td, I'm more worried about Kermy winding up in Julia Child's cuisses de grenouille, not to mention what Julia could do to Miss Piggy (Owe, the porcinity!).


BTW, we got us a real BKD over at the late afternoon post, "Bristol Palin joins cast of 'Dancing With the Stars'":

From the Post's Ed O'Keefe, Wanda Sykes "worked for the National Security Agency as a procurement specialist":

Minds out of the gutter, folks.
