When life gives you lemons dep't: David Hasselhoff is already off to a strong lead on "Drinking With the Stars," which started minutes after being voted off 'Dancing.'


When life gives you lemons dep't part II: At least Paris Hilton can now be mentioned in the same sentence as Keith Richards and Paul McCartney and actually belong there.


"Wyclef Jean officially ends presidential bid in Haiti so he can promote new album." Was that also finished a couple of months ago?

Hey Paris - if you want to travel overseas and be a criminal you need to be elected first.

If other countries can ban Paris Hilton, why can't we?


How can you do Bill and Ted without Rufus? Also, I'm kind of thinking that the concept of time traveling in a phone booth just doesn't have the same cache it once did, especially if there's no Karen Gillam involved with it.


There's been no extra dimensions to the previous Twilight movies, so why start now.


By the way, watched DWTS last night for the first time ever. I couldn't figure out who the sports stars were, but had no trouble with spotting The Situation and Audrina Patridge. I just went right ahead and threw one of my Man Cards in the trash.

Coffee all over my keyboard at your last comment, dorkus!

"Paris Hilton leaves Japan after being questioned by airport officials who refused to admit her into the country" -- So firm with their rules, Japan. Makes you wonder what they would've done with Roman Polanski.

"Wyclef Jean officially ends presidential bid in Haiti so he can promote new album" -- No fighting, no fighting! Such a decision. President? Album? Album? President? I think King Solomon made the right call on this one.

"Keanu Reeves would like to do a third 'Bill & Ted' movie" -- Sadly, Alex Winter's too busy making Oscar-worthy films to deign to that level again. Snob.

"L.A. County Probation Dept. will reportedly recommend prison time for Lindsay Lohan" -- Um, didn't she just do that? And leave prison early? Knock knock, Justice System. Anyone home?

"Nancy Cartwright, aka Bart Simpson, sued for more than $260,000 by insurance company that claims she owes the cash for work that her ex-fiance, who committed suicide last year, did not finish" -- Don't have a cow, Nancy! You know, when I'm having a bad day, I'm going to remember that things could be worse. Jeez, the guy's dead and she's probably still mourning. Give Bart a break.

Reading "The Beaver" and "Mel Gibson" together gives me unwanted visuals involving Barbara Billingsley and Scottish face paint. Man, and I just ate breakfast.

" Nancy Cartwright, aka Bart Simpson, sued for more than $260,000 by insurance company that claims she owes the cash for work that her ex-fiance, who committed suicide last year, did not finish." Insurance companies are evil!

td, don't shed a tear for Nancy Cartwright, as she's just another $cientology wackadoodle. Doubtless they'll bail her out.


Dorkus, on the one hand, Mr. P had no idea Monday night who Patridge and the Situation were on DWTS. OTOH, he recognized all the returning guys on "Glee," so may have to relinquish at least one of his Man Cards, too.


"Lone Star" may get canceled.

When Mr. P. heard the premise of "Lone Star" on NPR's "All Things Considered" yesterday afternoon, he declared that he had no interest in watching a series about such a deceitful character (who has a wife in one city, a mistress in another). Definitely giving him back that "Glee" Man Card :-)


If "The Beaver" gets released, could Mel Gibson become an Oscar contender for best actor?

Wouldn't bet the rent money on it. Besides, being a drunken bully doesn't earn any Man Cards, despite Gibson's twisted notions of manhood.

In a grudge match vs. the $cientolocult, I'd root for the insurance companies.
