Just in case you're on of the people who HASN'T seen it yet, here's what happened when a news station in Bakerfield, CA tried to interview legendary singer (and sleeper) Harry Belafonte via satellite! This is hilarious!!
Do you believe ANY of this? A guy who worked behind the scenes with Guy Fieri is now spilling some pretty vicious stories about him. Can you believe ANY of this? Or do you think this guy is just bitter?
Not everything on the 'Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives' set was happy and greasy. David Page, the ousted creator of the hit Food Network series, is speaking out and slamming host Guy Fieri's behavior.
In a new report, Page is claiming Fieri displayed some very bad behavior from sexism to homophobia. "Anytime any woman mentioned 'cream,' Guy went into a sexual riff," Page told City Pages. "When cutting the show, you had to tell the editors to watch Guy's eye line, because it's always on breasts."
It didn't stop there.
Fieri reportedly needed "advance warning" when working with homosexuals. Page said he once got a phone call from the host after he walked out of a restaurant.
"Guy had decided that the two men running the restaurant were life partners," Page said. "He said, 'You can't send me to talk to gay people without warning! Those people weird me out!'" City Pages reports from then on show researchers had to note indications of homosexuality during the location screening process.
The two reportedly continued to clash on set, especially when it came to money.
Fieri authored several successful 'Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives' books and reportedly promised to "split" the proceeds with Page Productions. The company got nothing. Page said Fieri approached him asking to use some of the show's research material for the second book. However, the production company wasn't going to be paid. A source close to the show said Page's company was never going to be paid since the network owns the rights to the series and that Page and Fieri negotiating payment from the book would've never happened.
"They were demanding tremendous research from my people, and pictures, but they didn't want to pay for them," Page said. "Guy said to me: 'You know, it's true: Jews are cheap.'"
Page sued Food Network earlier in 2011, saying the network breached a contract. The network then filed a countersuit, saying Page violated his contract and mistreated his staff. Page was removed from the show after Season 11.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the disputes were settled in August 2011. Page's comments come in the wake of the settlement.
"Anyone who knows Guy knows he's not the type of person who would say either of these horrible things," a spokesman for Fieri told AOL TV. "He doesn't think that way, he doesn't speak that way. It's just not who he is."
1. Creed has sold more records in the U.S. than Jimi Hendrix
2. Led Zeppelin, REM, and Depeche Mode have NEVER had a number one single. Rihanna has had TEN.
3. Ke$ha's "Tik Tok" sold more copies than any single the Beatles EVER released.
4. Celine Dion's "Falling Into You" sold more copies than any album by Nirvana, Bruce Springsteen, or Queen.
5. 20 million people bought Billy Ray Cyrus's album "Some Gave All." That's more than any album Bob Marley ever released.
Humans are weird creatures, especially when frightened. But if there's ONE THING we all have in common, it's our determination to defend ourselved. This is very evident when you see this group of photos, all taken from a haunted theme park. Can you spot the ONE THING that we all do, by habit, when we're REALLY scared?
Look, we all KNOW you drink Gatorade. And we all know it ISN'T to have the energy to "outlast your opponent" and "win the big game"... Nope. Finally, here's a commercial for the REAL reason people drink Gatorade.
Have you seen the movie "Moneyball" yet?Â Basically it's about trying to put together a winning team with less money than any other major league team. But what if the story was the opposite...what if you DID have a ton of money to spend. In other words...what if YOU were the Yankees?

NEW YORKâEvery year, toy makers and sellers hope there will be a runaway hit toy to help spur excitement around the holidays and boost sales. Toys R Us is betting that 15 toys ranging from a flying, inflatable remote-control fish to tiny collectible monsters will be big hits this season.
Making the right picks early is crucial for toy sellers so they have the right mixture of toys at the right prices to lure shoppers. The holiday season can account for about 40 percent of a toy seller's annual profit. In 2010, U.S. toy sales rose 2 percent to $21.87 billion, according to the NPD Group.
Karen Dodge, senior vice president and chief merchandising officer of Toys R Us in the U.S. said "there's lots of really interesting and different and unique toys on the list."

Let's face it. Sometimes, even in GREAT movies, there's a line that TOTALLY ruins the scene. Sometimes the people in the movie even KNOW it's a crappy line, ie: "I carried a watermelon..?" Here's a list of the 20 worst lines in movie history. Some of them you'll remember very well...
Here are 18 famous TV characters that were ORIGINALLY played by someone TOTALLY DIFFERENT than the actors who made them famous!1. Cousin Larry from Perfect Strangers. Would you believe comedian Louie Anderson was in the pilot as Balkiâs cousin? Yep. But after reviewing the (unaired) episode, executives decided that Louie just didnât have the right chemistry with Bronson Pinchot, whom the series was basically built around. Louie got the axe and Mark Linn-Baker stepped in.
2.Â Danny Tanner from Full House. Although show producers always had Bob Saget in mind, the widower and single dad was first played by an actor named John Posey because Saget was contractually obligated to a morning show on CBS. Posey was ousted when Saget got fired from The Morning Project, freeing him up for the family-friendly sitcom.
3. Carol Seaver from Growing Pains. The original Carol Seaver was an actress named Elizabeth Ward. After her character didnât seem to resonate with test audiences, producers called back Tracey Gold, who was on vacation with her family. She didnât want to go back, feeling they had seen her audition and didnât like her and nothing had changed. She was eventually convinced to give it another try.
4. Meg Griffin from Family Guy. The eternally picked-on Meg was voiced by Party of Five and Mean Girls actress Lacey Chabert for the first season. Feeling her voice just wasnât quite right, Seth MacFarlane and co. asked Mila Kunis to try out after seeing her on That 70s Show.
5. Officer Tom Hanson from 21 Jump Street. An actor named Jeff Yagher was originally cast as Officer Tom Hanson in the pilot. Who? This guy. Fox didnât care for his performance in the pilot episode and sought to recast the role, maybe with Josh Brolin. Creator Patrick Hasburgh decided to first try Johnny Depp one more time â he had already turned down the part once â and was thrilled when Depp finally accepted.
6. Eddie Haskell from Leave it to Beaver. Before he was renamed Eddie Haskell, the sycophant character was called Frankie and was played by Harry Shearer, whose parents pulled him from the show so he could have a normal childhood.
7. Jim Walsh from Beverly Hills 90210. Can you picture Ferris Buellerâs dad as Brenda and Brandonâs dad? It almost happened. Lyman Ward was the original Jim Walsh, but he was deemed not quite right for the show after shooting scenes for the first episode. Enter James Eckhouse.
8.Â D.J. Conner from Roseanne. The youngest Conner was originally played by an actor named Sal Barone, who appeared in the pilot. Michael Fishman took his place and played D.J. for the duration of the show.
9. Half the cast of Gilliganâs Island. If the producers had gone with the cast from a pilot episode, the classic sitcom would have been an entirely different show indeed. The unaired pilot included a high school teacher, not a professor, and he was played by actor John Gabriel, who eventually went on to play Seneca Beaulac in Ryanâs Hope. Instead of Mary Ann the farm girl and Ginger the movie star, the girls were a pair of secretaries named Ginger and Bunny, neither of them played by Tina Louise or Dawn Wells. And the theme song was completely different.
10. Alice Kramden from The Honeymooners. Pert Kelton played Alice Kramden for the first seven episodes of The Honeymooners and was supposedly replaced when her husband was blacklisted during the McCarthy era. The role, of course, was taken over by Audrey Meadows.
11. Mister Ed from Mister Ed. The horse in the pilot was a chestnut gelding, replaced after the pilot by a crossbred gelding named Bamboo Harvester . I just blew your mind, didnât I?
12. Chrissy Snow from Threeâs Company. Two actresses played the Chrissy character before Suzanne Somers. First there was Susanne Zenor, who was in the original pilot (when Chrissy was named Samantha). The script was entirely rewritten after that pilot and, as a result, Zenor was replaced with Susan Lanier. But Lanier didnât do the trick either â critics were pretty harsh on her performance in the second pilot, and Somers was hired instead.
13. Face from The A-Team. In the pilot, Face was portrayed by Tim Dunigan. After reviewing his tape, producers decided that Dunigan just looked too young to be a Vietnam Vet and replaced him with Dirk Benedict.
14. Gloria Stivic from All in the Family. Like Threeâs Company, All in the Family went through a couple of actresses before finally sticking with Sally Struthers to play Gloria Stivic. First, Kelly Jean Peters played the daughter of Archie and Edith Justice in a pilot called Justice For All. Then actress Candice Azzara was cast when the show was titled Those Were the Days. For the third incarnation, the Justices became the Bunkers and Sally Struthers had secured the role.
15. Roz Doyle from Frasier. A pre-Friends Lisa Kudrow was originally cast as Roz, but she was replaced after just a couple of days of rehearsals. âI knew it wasnât working. I could feel it all slipping away, and I was panicking, which only made things worse,â she later said.
16. Jenna Maroney from 30 Rock. Tina Fey originally cast her good friend Rachel Dratch in Jane Krakowskiâs role, but ultimately decided that Dratch was better suited to âplaying a range of different characters.â
17. Eddie Munster from The Munsters. When the show was pitched to the good folks at CBS, the role of Eddie was played by Nate âHappyâ Derman. Studio execs didnât like that he portrayed Eddie as a spoiled brat, so Derman was canned and Butch Patrick was brought in.
18. Rudy Huxtable from The Cosby Show. Well, Rudy wasnât exactly recast, but I felt like we had to share this nugget of information: Jaleel White was considered for the role of Rudy when the part was written for a boy. Ultimately, the producers just didnât love any of the male auditions and opened it up for females as well. They ended up falling for Keshia Knight Pulliam.
A forensic consultant who has worked for years with the FBI developed a computer image of what he thinks Jay-Z and Beyonce's kid will look like. See for yourself. He believes the kid will have Jay's features, but Beyonce's eyes.Â Take a look at this picture and tell us what YOU think?
Keep in mind, this is only if it's a boy. Which we don't know...yet.

If you like film, I think you're really about to enjoy this. Phillips Cinema held one of the coolest contests I've ever heard of. They challenged ANYONE to make a film using only TWO RULES. 1. The film has to be 3 minutes long. 2. Each film has to use the same 6 lines of dialogue. It's amazing the different directions each filmmaker chose. To give you some idea of how different they turned out, check out the top 2 prize winners:
First Prize: The Porcelain Unicorn

Back in the day Yo! MTV Raps was the SHOW y'all. Check out some great clips from old school MTV that they call the most ICONIC performances EVER!! Some are also from the Unplugged and VMA Awards shows. Check out the list, and tell me which is YOUR favorite (or did they leave it out?)
1. The Teams
The Boston Bruins have won the cup 5 times, but the last time was in the early 70's.Â The Canucks (yes, that's they're REAL team name) have NEVER won a cup. So you may see a first-time champion this year! How exciting is that?
2. The fans are NUTS
These are the Vancouver "Green Men" and they will be there EVERY HOME GAME, to haunt whatever player ends up in the penalty box. They are creative, hilarious, and if you REALLY want to see them in action, go to YouTube and type in "vancouver green men" for a good laugh.
As for Boston fans, they're pretty much known for 2 things, wild parties in the seats (see above) and rowdiness. There may not be an arena in the league that is harder on an opposing goaltender when he gets scored on. They will chant his name mercilessly. Also, at home games, listen for the trademark "WHOOO" after the public address announcer tells the crowd who scored a goal. If you're from Boston, you LOVE it. If you're not, it's ANNOYING.
3. Yes, this is a national pride thing...sort of.
See, for Canadians, hockey is "their game". Kinda like baseball is "our game". The problem? In the past 2 DECADES only 2 Canadian teams have won it. The rest have been American teams (filled with Canadian, Russian, and Eastern European players). So even though it isn't spoken, this is a battle not just ofÂ 2 teams, from 2 conferences, but 2 countries as well!
By the way, if you REALLY want to watch something special, make sure to check out any game where Vancouver is the home team, and watch how they sing their national anthem (O Canada) it's truly inspiring. We should totally steal the idea.
4. Don't expect to see a lot of fights, unfortunately.
The Stanley Cup playoffs are like the Super Bowl of hockey. So just like you wouldn't expect to see a lineman in a Super Bowl take a stupid penalty by hitting the quarterback while he's already down, or by punching a guy illegally, don't expect to see many players on the ice drop the gloves. It's too important of a game now. Sure you may see some outstanding hits, and you might even see a few players go after each other with some pushing, shoving, or even biting (seriously, it happened in Game 1), but just don't expect the old fashioned stand-off hockey fights you're used to seeing.
5. It's all about that Cup
The Stanley Cup is the hardest trophy in sports to win. You not only have to have a regular season record that is GOOD enough to put you in the playoffs, but then you have 4 rounds of best of seven matches to get through to win the cup! In other words, imagine having to play the World Series four times in a row just to win the trophy. That's why the NHL playoffs is often referred to as "the second season". We are now in the FINALS, which means both Boston and Vancouver have already survived 3 different series with opponents. This one decides it all. And what do you get? Immortality. Your name is forever etched into the Stanley Cup for all time. So no matter what happens to your career after, you'll always have your name on that cup. That's why it's so hard to win.
Ok, so maybe that's a bit of an exaggeration, but ya gotta admit, these are pretty good!
1. Baby Penguin meets Baby Dolphin
2. Shag and Panda
3. This is what a baby owl looks like!
4. Pug wearing slippers...with PUGS on them!
5. Cat in sweater.
6. Polar Bear owned by cone.
7. Dog at the bar.

12. Mama Otter shows off her new kid!
13. This top cat has a permanent top hat!
14. Firefighter gives oxygen to kitten.

This guy was voted "Most Likely to Snap and Slice Someone's Head Off" by his classmates. Congrats!
Do you think this guy was a TIGHT END or a WIDE RECIEVER?
The funniest part of this picture is the studio it was taken at. Can you see it? In the lower right corner? Yep. This was taken at HICKS studio. Yee haw!
The first thing you probably noticed is how SMALL that trophy is...

Say what you will, but that's pretty cheap for a spreadable butt these days.
How do you explain THIS receipt to your wife?Â "Where's this SLUT you ordered!?"
Seriously if you need cat pee that bad, I'm sure I can arrange something that won't involve you going to the liquor store for it.
You know what goes great with Leukemia Cakes? The chemo-muffins.
Look carefully at this video. The dog has brought this statue of a man a stick to play fetch. If you look closely, you can see the stick by the statue's left foot. Watch as the dog keeps waiting for the man to pick up the stick and play catch.Â And the dog gets SO frustrated when the "man" won't pick up that stick!! This is so funny, and so sad at the same time!
A man living in Abbottabad, Pakistan, gave a real-time account about the U.S. raid in which Osama bin Laden died without knowing it. Sohaib Athar, who uses the Twitter name "ReallyVirtual," first complained of helicopters overhead, a "rare event" for the upscale community not far from Islamabad, the country's capital. "Go away helicopter - before I take out my giant swatter :-/," he messaged before the attack began. Within minutes, he posted, "A huge window-shaking bang here in Abbottabad Cantt. I hope its not the start of something nasty :-S." Twitter chatter indicated one helicopter wasn't Pakistani, prompting Athar to post, "Since Taliban [probably] don't have helicopters, and since they're saying it was not 'ours', so must be a complicated situation#abbottabad." Eventually, Athar resent a post from Munzir Naqvi: "I think the helicopter crash in Abbottabad, Pakistan and the President Obama breaking news address are connected." Shortly thereafter, another Twitter user confirmed the news. On Monday, the IT consultant wrote, "Uh oh, now I'm the guy who liveblogged the Osama raid without knowing it."
Sweet, beautiful Pippa. Pippa Middleton is Kate's younger sister, and the HOTTEST chick at the wedding! You might have seen her taking care of big sis' train as they were entering the Church and thought the same thing I did: "WHO'S THE HOTTIE??" Well here's 5 things you didn't know about my new crush, Pippa.
1. Pippa is a nickname.
Her actual first name is Philippa, but she goes by Pippa with her friends. (Still, for all of you who think that she and Prince Harry would make a cute couple, Princess Philippa does have a nice ring to it.)
2. She and her sister have always been close.
Just two years apart, Kate and Pippa have always gotten along well and done things together. In order to be closer to Kate, who was attending the University of St. Andrews, Pippa went to college at the University of Edinburgh. In addition to being the maid of honor at Kateâs wedding, Pippa was reportedly involved in the planning and details.
3. She might be in a relationship.
Since last year, Pippa has been in a relationship with Alex Loudon, a former cricket star who is now studying for a graduate degree in business. Neither of them have confirmed the relationship on the record, though.
4. She works for her familyâs company.
Carole and Michael Middleton made their fortune with a company they founded called Party Pieces. Itâs a mail-order company where people can order supplies and decorations for events. Although Pippa didnât start out working for Party Pieces, when the company kept growing she left her job to come work with her parents.
5. She loves designer clothes.
Pippa is often photographed by British society papers. Like her sister, her dress for the wedding was designed by Alexander McQueen creative director Sarah Burton, and she switched into a seafoam-green gown by Alice Temperley for the reception.
Movie fans! I've found an awesome and fun game where they take 3 random images and put them next to each other, and the entire thing is one big clue to a popular movie! For example, can YOU guess what movie these 3 pictures are trying to describe?
Did you know it was "The Matrix"? If you got THIS one right, see if you can guess all 5o!Â Now BEFORE YOU TRY THIS, remember! You can go to Z104's facebook page to help each other out if you're stuck on one, and maybe another Z listener will help you! Just don't post EVERY ANSWER, ok? Let's keep it SOMEWHAT challenging!
Check out these REAL descriptions of episodes of TV shows on your TV's guide, and see if you can figure out what they were thinking!
Umm...isn't this just a LITTLE bit racist?
So you pretty much asked the question and answered it right there. Nice work.
What are you apologizing about? Ruining the entire plot maybe?
We don't know what this show is, but we DO know what it's NOT. It's NOT porn.
Seriously? Shizzle? Did Snoop HIMSELF write up this description for you guys?
Why do I NOT think this is an episode of Star Trek?Â I don't recall Captain Picard battling Klingons and BEARS.
Forgive me for generalizing, but isn't this EVERY SINGLE EPISODE of the X-Files?
So...don't ask me why...but somebody actually calculated how much it would cost to take that historic cab ride from West Philadelphia all the way to Bel Air, CA.Â Yo homes, to Bel Air!Â But it'll COST ya...

OMG! The really SCARY thing is that these people work in NATIONAL NEWS!! Who let these errors get on TV?? Check out some of the funniest "OOPS" moments from Fox News Channel over the past year...
Umm...perhaps they don't have MAPS in the Fox News studios, so they just GUESS where countries are...
Something sure looks different about the congressWOMAN these days...
Well I don't know if it's the high gas prices or not, but apparently something has already cost Fox News their EDUCTAION...
Oh wow. I'm assuming this is ME as in the abbreviation for Maine. But didn't ANYBODY read this sentence and think, "hmm..maybe we just type out the whole word instead..."?
Could it be a GOOD THING?? COULD IT BE A GOOD THING?? SERIOUSLY??
We're pretty sure this goes back to the days when Charlie Sheen worked as a reporter on Fox News.

What IS this? So...you married a tiny woman, decapitated her, and kept her head as a souvenir?
JESUS IN THE HOUSE, BITCHES!!! WHAT!!
WTF? So Noah Wyle from ER has this lady stuck in his head on his wedding day? And why does this woman look so EVIL?
Hmm...I'm just trying to figure out where they got the material for those dresses...hmm...
Her: "I'm so happy I'm married!"Â Him: "What the F%&*K are YOU smilin about?"
The FBI needs help cracking a code.Â And they're reaching out to the public to help.Â
On June 30th, 1999, a 41-year-old man named Ricky McCormick was found murdered in St. Louis.Â The only clues were two notes, written in some kind of code, that were stuffed into his pockets.
Â The FBI's codebreakers haven't been able to figure them out.Â So after 12 years, they're looking for help.Â An FBI official says, quote, "Maybe someone with a fresh set of eyes [will] come up with a brilliant new idea."
There's no official reward if you do crack the code.Â And, of course, there's a chance it's not even a code and it's just gibberish.Â But if you DO crack it and help them solve the murder, you'll be nationally recognized as a hero.
Â Here's your chance to give back and be a HERO.Â They might even make a movie about you.Â Where you'll be played by JAKE GYLLENHAAL or ANNE HATHAWAY.
Well it's almost PROM season, and I thought I would help by putting up some examples of prom fashion NO-NOs for everyone. Can YOU spot the fashion disasters in THESE pics? I sure hope so!
Umm...what YEAR was this prom?
Pooh. Your whole idea for a theme...was Pooh.
Prom in wonderland. As in I wonder what land you thought this would look good in.
Wow! This guy's got TWO prom dates! Oh wait...
Does this even COUNT as a dress?
This outfit has TWO things going for it...
White suit? Check. Jordan headband? Check. Mean mug for cameras? Check.
After the dance, they cut slices of her dress for everyone to eat!
These are all true stories collected from newspapers around the country in the "Police Blotter" section.Â If you need a good laugh today, check out these DIRTY DOZEN real crime stories!!
You should've seen the chaos when their dog "Fire" ran away.
I would be nervous if Arnold was watching my kids too.
Best quote of the year by far. I LOVE that quote!
Have you ever heard someone refer to having a "mexican food baby"? Well apparently it really happens.
This SOOO reminds of that commercial where they catch the robber by yelling "Redddd Robin!"
Seriously. Make sure your dog is wearing an anti-force field on its head.
I've heard those chicken pot pies just run right through you, but not down the street!
But what they didn't tell you...was that it wasÂ a CANADIAN QUARTER!!!
I can just see the duck now, flapping his wing yelling "I GOT THIS...I GOT THIS! I don't need yo help! Leave me alone man!"
Umm...remind me again. WHERE is the story here?
Quick: CHECK THE LOHAN HOUSEHOLD!
I say arrest him ANYWAY. Nobody needs more bills.
Doesn't anybody PROOF READ anymore? Apparently NOT!Â Check out these REAL, and hilarious actual sports headlines that really ran!
That's gotta be one impressive (and expensive) hooker...
Umm...wow. I really don't know who proof read this and went, "Yep! Looks good to me!"
Yep. That just happened.
I'm pretty sure we all know this. Do you really need to emphasize it?
Now come ON...this HAD to have been on purpose.
Wow. That's usually not how they smell. Especially the ones from Cleveland.
Wow. He SERIOUSLY looks hurt there. Gotta sympathize for the guy...
I'm pretty sure the old guy on Family Guy is pretty excited about this headline.
That's pretty much all he's doing these days...
It happens. Try a yardstick?
Did they HAVE to use THIS headline with THAT picture??
I thought this was absolutely hilarious, although it's a little bit long (5 mins). But check out what this dude does with one of the most recognizable saxophone hooks of all time.Â You will laugh your butt off watching this guy do impromptu performances without being invited.

What do Mr. T, New Kids on the Block, and Urkel all have in common? They've all had their own cereal! Seriously! Do you remember eating "Urkel-O's"? Check out these pictures of over 50 cereals that no longer exist, and see how many YOU can remember!!
Have you seen peoples' facebook pages that have segments of the same picture all across the top of their page?? How cool is that? There are several ways to do it, but the easiest way I have found is through a website I found! Be careful, you're giving out free access to your FB page if you do this, OK? But if you decide ya wanna give it a try, here's the website I used:
Here's a question: what do Scarlett Johanssen, Jessica Alba, Eva Longoria, Jessica Biel, and Lindsay Lohan all have in common? They all appear in this hilarious commercial for the "Hottie Body" workout system!Â Check out the star power Jimmy Kimmel got to help make this fake infomercial even more hilarious!

SELLECK WATERFALL SANDWICH. The name says it all. Finally a website has combined the most awesome 3 things on the planet.

This is the nine-eyed camera that Google uses to take real photos for Google Street View. Since it's driven around the world and it constantly takes pictures of everything it sees, you can imagine that there are some pretty unbelievable moments caught on film. Here are some of the weirdest ones!
Does this horse look pregnant to anyone else?
Proof there are illegal aliens living in America.
Umm...who left a baby at the Gucci store?
Apparently Marty McFly and the Doc made a stop here...
Uh..sir? It's about your house. It's on fire...
Sometimes it just doesn't pay to be a fox.
Men looking into a manhole.
And of course a man looking for a womanhole.
Some neighborhoods look like this...
Some scarier ones look like this...
Then there's YOUR neighborhood, which probably looks like THIS.
Looking at this photo and wondering, "what in the beautiful twisted dark teenage dream is going ON here?" Me too. Here's the story, morning glory:Â
Kanye West is getting an out-of-this-world encounter on his latest collaboration. The rapper has teamed up with Katy Perry to add his touch to her latest single âE.T.â The superstars have already shot a video for the cut from Perryâs Teenage Dream album with director Floria Sigismondi (David Bowie, Marilyn Manson). The pop diva appears as an alien creature alongside Kanye in the first photo from the intergalactic set. The single will be released to radio this week.
You've never heard of Johnny McEntee. Why? Because he's a back-up at the University of Connecticut. In fact, he's the 3RD STRING. However, he just might be the most accurate passer in the history of the sport of football. But don't take MY word for it. Watch this video that will make you ask, "is this possible? is this REAL?" and then please leave a comment. Be warned though: you will honestly not believe what you're about to see.
After you see what's on the menu at THESE restaurants, you'll definitely think twice about wanting to eat there...
Hmm...I'm gonna pass on the chocolate puke. For now, at least.
Ewww...STD burgers? Maybe you should wear protection while you go in and out of this drive thru.
At least they don't serve you the backwash RAW. I mean, at least they BAKE it first.
So wait...I'm not getting the REAL chicken??
So wait...when I order fried rice, the RICE is NOT included? WTF?
Wait...why is my food SWETTY? Did it just finish a long workout or something?
First of all, how are you getting CHEESE out of a TURTLE. Second, what cheap S.O.B. tells their kid, "hey for dessert you're getting a 10 lb bag of ice! enjoy!"
I have no idea WHO this person is but based on this resume I think they deserve a job...quick before they kill somebody!! Check out this hilarious resume put up on Craigslist. WARNING: offensive comments but all are censored out. Leave a comment and tell us what you think!
A local councilman shot to death on New Year's Eve in the Philippines accidentally photographed his killer pointing a gun at him just before pulling the trigger. In the photo above, victim Reynaldo Dagsa's smiling family members are posed against a car; the alleged killer is at left, and an alleged lookout is at right. The photo led to the arrest of two suspects, one of whom was a car thief out on bail, presumed to be looking for revenge against Dagsa.
Ever get the creepy feeling that things aren't what they seem? Well you SHOULD if you see any of THESE signs anywhere...
Umm...yeah. I think I'll stick to Halloween at HOUSES this year...
I love hugs just as much as the next guy...I just don't think I wanna get any down there...
Seriously. If you fall for this one, you honestly DESERVE to have your money stolen.
What do ya think is on the other side of that van?? I don't know, but I'll just bet it's NOT money...
I think this year, I'm gonna get my training from someone who is NOT Jack Nicholson in "The Shining" thanks though.
How much ya wanna bet there IS NO bathroom? Or there IS, but when you get there, it's totally broken.
You know the sad part? He probably really DOESN'T have a meth lab back there. Either way, I'm not goin in...
It's absolutely one of the most bizarre traditions in all of sports. Taylor University's "Silent Night" basketball game. Have you ever heard of it? You've got to check out this video. You won't believe your eyes (or ears!)
First of all, in case you don't know what a "photobomb" is, you've probably done it yourself! It's when you see someone taking a picture that's GOING to turn out nice, so YOU decide to ruin it by jumping in the background and making a stupid face!
Sometimes you make a dumb face, or you give the finger, or you sometimes you just ruin it by accident! And now, here are the 10 Worst Photobombs of All Time!
Thanks a lot, dude in the other car. We weren't exactly sure how you felt about this girl in the photo, but now we know.
What exactly is wrong with the kid in the backseat of THIS car? Brotha needs a happy meal, PRONTO!
Yes, it's true. This woman was photobombed by her own CAT.
Isn't it good to know that the girl from "The Ring" still gets out every once in a while?
Look. It's not YOU. Seriously. It's the bloated, naked guy BEHIND you...
Look, with that stupid thing on your head, chances are this wasn't going to be a good picture ANYWAYS. But homey in the background sealed it.
Dont ya HATE IT when you're taking a picture with the NEW GF, and the OLD GF tries to jump in?
This lady went on a fishing trip, and apparently she reeled in a 200 pound big-mouth idiot.
This photo would be FINE except...wait...who is that...in the background...? GRANDPA?? What are you DOING???
Maybe he's just reacting to that awful hat.
Umm...keep your dog in your OWN yard?
OK, seriously, these vampire movies are getting a little suspicious...
I never trusted that Crocodile Dundee...ESPECIALLY in Los Angeles.
I mean, I'm HAPPY for Nancy and all...but did it REALLY take ALL FOUR of them to DO IT?
See...i THOUGHT so. Looks like Nancy's got a date with Maury Povich coming...
This one just reeks with disappointment, doesn't it?
Snow might be responsible for a crosswalk sign flipping pedestrians the bird in Spokane, WA. City Streets Department workers believe snow packed into the electronic sign appears to be the reason only the middle finger seems upraised when the "Don't Walk" hand appears. City officials want to be clear that it is definitely "unintentional."
Back in August, Engadget produced a mock-up of a prototype PlayStation phone. We all cried "Fake!" mostly because Sony's own employees were denying such a product was in development. Now Engadget is back with actual pictures, and further confirmation that soon the PlayStation and phone will become one. The secret project's code name is "Zeus" (you can check out details in the second link below).
We've now learned to never doubt Engadget's reporting on this subject. There are certain things you just don't lie about, and a PlayStation phone is apparently be one of them.
Wanna win at the new McDonalds Monopoly game! You'd better check out this website FIRST:

Cigar Guy's secret identity has been revealed, and in the end, the truth was right in front of our faces all along.
Cigar Guy is, of course, the mysterious grinning stranger in the corner of that famous Daily Mail Tiger Woods photo from the Ryder Cup last week. Wearing what appeared to be a turban and smoking a cigar the size of a small tree, the absurdly out-of-place Cigar Guy kicked off a worldwide Internet game of Photoshop one-upsmanship. Within moments, Cigar Guy began showing up all throughout history, like here:
But at long last, he's been found! The London Daily Mail did the investigative work, and it turns out that Cigar Guy is actually a mild-mannered, mildly embarrassed young man! (Isn't that always the way with our heroes?) Cigar Guy is Rupesh Shingadia, a 30-year-old investment analyst who -- no kidding -- still lives with his parents in South London.
And as it turned out, the mustache was fake too. Shingadia was a few weeks early for Halloween. But who was the inspiration for his costume? Why, someone that golf fans should have recognized instantly, of course:
That's right, he was dressed as Miguel Angel Jimenez, the smooth, cigar-smoking golf version of The Most Interesting Man In The World.
"I wanted to do something to show my support for the European team, and I thought of Miguel," Shingadia told the Daily Mail. "These days sportsmen have become devoid of character. But Miguel does his own thing and I love the way he walks around the course with a cigar clamped between his teeth."
Beyond that, well ... there's not really all that much to tell about a guy that dressed up as another guy and happened to end up the focus of attention in one of the most celebrated photos of the year, if not the decade. Shingadia said he had no intention of playing to the TV cameras; he was there to watch some golf.
"My friends were keen to get me together with Miguel," he said. "I was quite close to him at the 13th. I like to think there was a flicker of a smile when he looked in my direction. His caddie was certainly laughing."
And a few holes later, with one fateful Woods mis-hit, so was the rest of the planet.
These ladies had to stand cheek to cheek. Would they do that with men?
Now, according to ESPN, the Body Issue "is a celebration and exploration of the athletic form, honoring athletes of diverse shapes, sizes, colors, genders and race."
The question isâ¦ When is a photograph about "athletic form" and when is it about "sexy body"? Because when basketball star Dwight Howard was on a cover last year, the focus of the image was his musculature. Diana Taurasi's biceps are impressive, but her cover shot seems a bit more sensual. And the shot of the water polo team could be an outtake from a sorority hijinks porn movie. Are we conditioned to see the naked female form as sexual, and the nude male form as one a symbol of strength? Or did ESPN use a different approach when photographing male and female athletes? If you're really interested, you can find out more this week, when ESPN2 airs a special about the Body issue.
What do YOU think? Do these photos go TOO FAR? Are they an expression of what athletic bodies should look like? Or is this really just sex selling magazines? Leave a comment, and we'll post it!
Sarah Murdoch, the host of Australia's Next Top Model, effed up royally at the live finale when she announced the wrong winner.

A couple months ago, a Z Morning Zoo listener named Kristen emailed me and asked me to help make one of her dreams a reality. She was getting married, and wanted an unforgettable first dance with her husband. So we met at the Z104 studios on a sunny Saturday morning, and we both sat in a production studio for over an hour coming up with the PERFECT mix.Â After what must have been days and weeks of rehearsals with her fiancee (what a great sport!), here's how it turned out! Congratulations to the happy couple! If they can make it through THIS routine together, marriage should be a piece of cake (hah! get it? wedding cake?)
Did you know there's an online service that will print out FAKE receipts for you? What would you USE a fake receipt for? How about:
Expense reports for work
Covering up an "out of town" lie
Leaving a fake ATM receipt laying around for a money-hungry girl to see?
It's REAL!Â (well actually the site is real, the receipts are NOT)
here's the link: www.salesreceiptstore.com
Arcade Fire have teamed up with the cool dudes at Google to create an interactive video whatnot thing for their latest single 'We Used To Wait'. Basically, you plonk your postcode into a box and the video then uses Google Street Map to personalise what appears before you in various windows by showing pictures of things near where you live.
It's kinda cool, and I didn't even watch it in Google's Chrome browser, as recommended. Take that, Google! It definitely worked in Safari, and Firefox just about managed to hold it all together, as well. As a quick demonstration of the potential of HTML5 coding, it's quite impressive. As a demonstration of how good Arcade Fire's new songs are, though, not so much.

Looking for something to do this coming Valentine's Day, 2001? Well look no more - Carnival Cruise lines is offering a Boyz II Men Carnival Cruise to the Bahamas. That's right: Motown-Philly singers Boyz II Men are hosting a frickin' LOVE cruise Valentine's Day 2011, featuring a live performance, formal prom night and Boyz II Men singles mixer. And the opportunity to renew your wedding vows onboard with Boyz II Men. Because true love often comes accompanied by a cheesesteak and in matching sweater vests! The first hundred passengers to sign up get $50 off. I'm so there.
Here's some hard evidence that fat people are discriminated against: A nail salon charged $5 extra on a customer's bill for a manicure, pedicure and eyebrow arch at a nail salon because she's obese.
Michelle Fonville was paying her bill at Natural Nails in DeKalb County, Georgia (near Atlanta), when she noticed an extra charge. The nail salon owner, Kim Tran, told her it was because she's overweight and she was charging extra in case Fonville caused damage to the salon's chairs she'd been sitting on.
Even if Fonville was too overweight for the salon chairs, you can't just tack an extra charge on someone's bill arbitrarily. (Otherwise we'd all be getting weird charges tacked onto our bills.) This incident sounds more like a case of "we're charging you more to dissuade people like you not from coming back" to me.

News Video is at the Bottom of the Story
I'm not a huge fan of golf, and you might not be either. But no matter what, you will DEFINITELY get a kick out of this video, and I think you'll appreciate how HARD this is to do!
p.s. would I even PUT this video up here if there wasn't a GREAT ending?
The producers of the upcoming horror flick "The Last Exorcism" thought up a pretty creative way to advertise their new film. They put a fake video up on Chat Roulette that LOOKS like a girl about to take her clothes off.Â But alas, things aren't always what they seem....
WATCH AT YOUR OWN DISCRETION. THIS IS SCARY AND HAS FOUL LANGUAGE. NOT EXACTLY SAFE FOR WORK.
Police in New York say the man who robbed a Chase bank branch was armed with a pistol and dressed as "Star Wars" villain Darth Vader. Suffolk County police Detective Sgt. William Lamb said the robber walked into the Setauket branch Thursday dressed in Darth Vader's signature mask and cape.
Lamb said the robber got into a "shoving match" with a customer who initially thought the costumed man was joking. "The customer thought it might have been a joke, and not a serious attempt at a robbery," Lamb said. Police said the intruder pulled out a gun and ordered the man to the floor. Lamb said investigators were trying to determine how much money the holdup man was able to shove into a bag before fleeing.
Remember the 11-year-old Florida girl who became a YouTube star after a video of her dad yelling at her online-haters went viral? Well, she is now under police protection because of death threats. In the video "You dun goofed up," which has been viewed more than 1.7 million times, Jessi Slaughter cried while her father threatened her online enemies with "backtracing" and "cyber police."
As the video went viral (you can see one of the many copies circulating online in the link below), so did Slaughter's real name, address and phone number, which were distributed via 4chan.org and Tumblr. The ensuing barrage of threats and prank phone calls led the local sheriff to launch a criminal investigation of the video and move Jessi to a safe house. She's now back home but under police protection - and a court order that bans her from using the Internet.
Video in QuestionThe actual story. WTF?

The city of Townsville, Australia has turned to the US for sperm donations as Australia faces a critical shortage. And for all you economically-challenged, the Queensland Fertility Group, the largest fertility clinic in Townsville, pays more than $700 a pop (pun intended) for sperm imported from the U.S.
In the past, clinics used to rely on college students who were short on cash to donate sperm but these days not enough north Queensland (Northern Region) men, or even Australian men, are prepared to donate.
Infertility specialist Dr. Ron Chang says the decline is due to recent changes to the law that allows the conceived child to contact the donor (the father) when the child turns 18. âAll the donors stopped coming in because they didnât want a knock on the door in 18 years later,â he said. âI think children should have the right to know their biological parents, but it has a knock-on effect.â
The shortage has also prompted IVF clinics nationwide (in Australia) to get creative about attracting potential donors. New South Walesâ largest clinic, IVF Australia, launched an online advertising campaign with tag lines such as: âYouâve got millions to spare, we only need one.â
Has Making $700 Ever Been Easier Than This?

M.I.A. "Born Free"

The new, top secret iPhone 4G prototype is no longer top secret. Believe it or not, it was left at a bar in Redwood City, CA (just south of San Francisco, in the Bay Area). The techy-folks at Gizmodo.com took it apart and have confirmed that it is, in fact, the new iPhone 4G. And to re-confirm that itâs the real deal, Apple has confirmed that they are indeed, missing a prototype iPhone.
The folks at Gizmodo said that unlike the 3GS currently on the market, the new iPhone has a front-facing video chat camera. It also has an improved back-camera with a larger lens and flash. The screen has an improved display with a higher resolution so that individual pixels are not visible. At the top they found what looked like a secondary microphone for noise cancellation as well as split buttons for volume. All the buttons were metallic.
The iPhone 4G is expected to hit stores worldwide in June, according to the latest blog speculation and will be on the Verizon network. Check out some photos of the new iPhone below.

CHURCH MEMBERS VERY UPSET ABOUT PENIS ON JESUSâ STOMACH
Rev. Philip Seeton of St. Charles Borromeo Catholic Church (in OK) said some members have been leaving because of a 10-foot crucifix that some say appears to depict a penis on Jesusâ stomach. âIâve had people who have vocally said that thatâs what they see there. Iâve had people who have been just as vocal who said thatâs not what theyâre seeing there,â the pastor said. Seriously, if you look at the photo below, itâs absolutely whatâs there.
Anyway, Seeton said there have been a couple people who have left the parish because of it, and there are others who donât like it, but have decided to stay.â He said the sculpture, created by artist Janet Jaime and installed in the church Feb. 21, actually depicts Jesus with his abdomen âshowing distension.â âI think it was painted according to the certain specific rules of iconography and church art,â Seeton said. He said there are no plans to remove or replace the crucifix.
Wanna see it? OK, but make sure you leave a comment on what you think, OK?
HAVE THE POWER YOUâVE ALWAYS WANTED â TURN OFF ANY TV ANYWHERE (INSERT EVIL LAUGH HERE)
According to the U.S. Census Bureau, there are about 250 million television sets in the U.S. and we can guess that the majority of them are turned on a lot of the time. All in all, this is not bad (heck, we enjoy a good movie as much as anyone else) but there are some occasions when you just need to do everyone a favor and turn the TV off. A certain portion of television content is just plain questionable and about as healthy as second-hand smoke.
Enter the TV-B-Gone, a small television remote that hangs on your keychain and turns off virtually any television with the press of button. âNow, what would be the purpose of such a device?â you may be asking yourself. Imagine sports bars or annoying talking head shows that appear on monitors at the airport. Add to that your own creativity and weâre pretty sure youâll come up with some ideas. All you need to do is press the button and keep pointing it at the TV until it turns off (which may take up to 69 seconds). The next 69 seconds will be spent quietly, or not so quietly, enjoying the perplexed expressions of the TV automatons. The TV-B-Gone also has these great features.
â¢ Turns off (and on) virtually any television
â¢ Perfect for carrying on your keychan
â¢ May take up to 69 seconds for the television to turn off (90% of televisions should turn off within 17 seconds)
â¢ Range: 20 to 50 feet (7 to 17 m), depending on the make and model of the TV
â¢ Contains 209 turn-off codes
â¢ Regular Version works on TVs in US, Canada, Mexico, many Asian countries (European version also available!)
â¢ Lithium batteries included (last about 3 months to one year depending on usage)
â¢ Dimensions: 1.92â³ x 2.27â³ x .675â³
â¢ Weight: 26 grams with batteries
Can You Imagine Using This in a Bar?Only $19.99
This woman just came out of her druggy haze after having her wisdom teeth taken out. When the nurse asks if she's OK, she starts rambling about how a unicorn took her away to the land of the blueberries! Look at her face when she sees the camera! Priceless!
KFC INTRODUCES THE âDOUBLE DOWNâ â BACON AND CHEESE BETWEEN FRIED CHICKEN
Quite some time ago (maybe a year or so), we wrote about the âDouble Down,â a mysteriously tempting (and potentially lethal) new food item being tested by KFC. For those coming late to the story, itâs a bacon and cheese sandwiched between two pieces of fried chicken. Anyway, now, many months later, weâll finally be able to get our hands on one.
KFC announced the decision to go live with the Double Down on April1st. Of course we thought they were playing a April Fools gag. But no, they truly are going nationwide with the delicacy on April 12. The sandwich will be available in two forms. The Original Recipe sandwich will set you back about 540 calories, 32g of fat and 1380mg of sodium. The not-as-bad-for-you Grilled Double Down totals 460 calories, 23g of fat and 1430mg of sodium. â Looks like a hot, artery-clogging mess. But everything does tastes better with bacon, doesnât it?
COLLEGE BILLBOARD OFFERING HIGHER EDUCATION CONTAINS SPELLING ERROR
A billboard for a South Florida college contains a huge, and embarrassing, mistake. The billboard for South Florida Career College advertised higher education and a better career for potential students, but also displayed a spelling error.
The billboard was supposed to say, âItâs never too late to start your career.â However, it actually says, âItâs never too late to start you career.â Seems like they forgot to put the letter âRâ in the word âyou.â The billboard was not the only spelling error by an educational institution. Crews misspelled âschoolâ in a crosswalk in front of Goulds Elementary School in Miami, back in June of 2009.
It was unknown who was responsible for the spelling mistake: the school, the designers of the billboard or the person who put up the sign. A local resident pretty much summed it up by saying, âI think itâs not a good career starter if you canât spell it right.â
As Bill Engvall says, "Here's Your Sign..."
STUDENT CREATES ONLINE PETITION TO GET THE WORD âHELLAâ TO BE AN OFFICIAL SCIENTIFIC MEASUREMENT
A University of California student is leading an effort to name the number 10 to the 27th power after popular slang term âhella.â Austin Sendek, a sophomore at UC Davis, said he wants to name the number starting with 1 and ending with 27 zeros after the slang term for âveryâ or âreallyâ now that the number is being used more frequently due to the study of space.
Sendek said his online petition for the cause has gained more than 23,000 signatures and he blogs about his efforts at makehellaofficial.blogspot.com. âItâs another way to honor Northern California colloquialism and turn it into actual science,â the student said.

Did you see THIS?? A guy got in an argument with a gas station owner over the "pay before you pump" policy, so he RAN HIS TRUCK THROUGH THE FRONT WINDOW!Â The details:
Deputies say Roger Mayes intentionally drove his truck into a gas station in Pinson Sunday morning, barely missing the clerk. The gas station's owner says it will cost $100,000 to repair his business.
Deputies say Mayes tried to charge them, before he was subdued with a stun-gun.

OMG have you SEEN this? This kid does a DEAD ON impression of Herb Brooks' pregame speech to the 1980 U.S. Hockey Team before their historic game vs. the Soviets. This kid is 4 years old, plays hockey, and has seen the film "Miracle" with his dad, over 150 times. Someday I hope MY 4 year old son will put on a suit, walk into the living room, and give me a speech like THIS:
I'm gonna warn you, the following was a slip on LIVE tv in New York, by a news anchor. The only thing I can think is that he meant to say, "keep PLUCKING that chicken.." but that's not what came out!

Check out this video of this Dad going OFF on the media. They were there to cover his DAUGHTER'S trial! She faked an abduction, and was being tried for it. But apparently Daddy didn't like all the media attention!
Saw this and thought you might find it very interesting. It's from a 1985 edition of Ebony magazine where they asked a conceptual artist to do some "photo touch-up" work on the biggest celebrities of the day. The idea was this: what will they look like all the way in the year 2000? Remember, this was about 15 years BEFORE that. HERE is what they thought a 40-year old Michael JacksonÂ would look like in the year 2000 (they were just a little off, huh?):
Have you SEEN this?? Unbelievable!!
Last July a minor league baseball brawl turned extremely ugly when pitcher Jose Castillothrew a fastball into the stands, injuring a fan. Castillo says the ball was intended for the opposing team's dugout but some people - including a judge - doesn't seem to care. Castillo, a Cubs prospect, was convicted yesterday of felonious assault. He was acquitted of a second charge of felonious assault with a deadly weapon. Castillo be sentenced Thursday and faces two to eight years in jail.
Right now AMC is hosting a fun little option on their website for the hit show "Mad Men". You can make your own animated character, like the ones you see depicted in the opening credits. You get to choose everything from body shape and hair color, to what kind of suit and drink you'll be holding! Women also can design their own character! The website: www.amctv.com/originals/madmen/madmenyourself/
Here's what I look like as a member of the "Mad Men" show:
WHILE "THE REAL WORLD" films in the District this summer, there are a few safe bets for places to catch MTV's latest batch of dysfunctional twentysomethings: Georgetown restaurants and bars.
Capital Restaurant Concepts has signed a deal with Real World producers Bunim/Murray Production giving the company permission to film in five locations, including a few neighborhood institutions.
The cast will have the option of eating at the saloon-style J. Paul's, the Italian eatery Paolo's Ristorante, the barbecue joint Old Glory, Mediterranean-influenced Neyla and the Third Edition restaurant and nightclub.
Don't expect too much advanced notice about when to catch (or avoid) the camera crews, though. CRC isn't disclosing when the show might be filming.
"It is our policy as a company to maintain the privacy and discretion of celebrities while they patron our establishments," company spokeswoman Elizabeth Scott said.
Will the cast's forays into Georgetown dining give an indication of what this season will have to offer? Will they go for boozy clubbing at Third Edition? Oysters and beers at J. Paul's? The $45 per-person bourbon and cigar four-course dinner at Old Glory?
If you visit D.C. youÂ can try to catch them in the act â or just catch them on cable.
Â» J. Paul's, 3218 M St. NW; 202-333-3450.Â» Neyla, 3206 N St. NW; 202-333-6353.
Â» Old Glory, 3139 M St. NW; 202-337-3406.

Here it is: the newÂ one from Weird Al.Â It's called "Craigslist".Â It's a parody of the songs of The Doors, although no specific song is parodied.Â Still, it's interesting to note that original Doors keyboardist Ray Manzarek is playing the keys on this one for ol Weird Al.Â The video was directed by comedian/singer/director Liam Lynch. Enjoy!
Did you see American Idol judge Kara DioGuardi out-sing bikini girl Katrina Darrell at the American Idol finale? They both sang their own version of Mariah's "Vision of Love". But to make things fair, Kara ALSO did it in a bikini. After feeling awkward, knowing there were only 50 million people watching, she covered up quickly. But we caught it!

Aren't we all superheroes in our minds?
This "create your own hero" website is pretty fun 'n' easy. It guides you through each superheroic body part, and you just have to pick your favorites. At the end, it displays what your customized hero would look like on the cover of a comic book.
The best part of the feature might be the soundtrack: Bonnie Tyler's Holding Out For a Hero plays as you select weapons and disguises.
Here's the one I created:

Here's your chance to score a free sandwich for lunch today.
Quiznos has vowed to give away one million subs. Want one? Just go to www.millionsubs.com, sign up and you'll receive a coupon in your inbox.
So far the sandwich chain has given away more than 24,000 subs. If you want to work the system -- not that I plan to do this -- I think you could probably just use different e-mail addresses and rack up the coupons. (You may not want to overindulge in the "5 Meat Stack," though.)
TodayÂ is National Pancake Day at IHOP. Stop in from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m., and you'll receive one free short stack of buttermilk pancakes. Mmm.
The event is for a good cause, and customers are being asked to donate to Children's Miracle Network. Last year Pancake Day raised more than $875,000 for charity, and IHOP hopes tomorrow's donations will top $1 million.
What can I say about Ms. Danica Patrick? She's gorgeous, she's fiesty, and she's a HELL of a driver. 2 of her photos from this year's SI Swimsuit Issue. I SALUTE you, Ms. Danica. You can drive me ANYWHERE, ANYTIME.
Best performance of the night? Jennifer Hudson, don't ya think? Fighting back the tears while she sang "YOU got me through it..."! Amazing!
Worst performance?Â I love her, but Katy Perry was a little over the top. It DID make me hungry for a fruit salad though.
Lookin GOOD dept.-Gwyneth Paltrow, the "Rap Pack" who performed Swagga Like Us, J-Hud, Taylor Swift, Kate Beckinsale
Lookin BAD dept.-Where do I start?? How about Paula Abdul, Carrie Underwood (nice stems, bad outfit), Estelle (nice space suit), Cyndi Lauper (stop coming. you're no longer relevant), Robert Plant (you won Album of the Year, and you show up in Jeans, a white T, and a black leather jacket? thanks Zuko), Sheryl Crow (are you buddhist now?), MIA (I know you're pregnant, but you don't have to look like a peacock), Juliana Whats-her-face from E! (please stop laying on the tanning lotion. you are orange.)
Unneccesary performances that I don't need to see yet again for the 100th time: Al Green singing "Let's Stay Together", Paul McCartney "I Saw Her Standing There", Neil Diamond singing "Sweet Caroline".
Worst Hair of the night: Tie. Kanye West's Mullet Vs. Cyndi Lauper's um...whatever that was.
The "spit it out" award: Best new artist Adele, who gave her acceptance speech with gum in her mouth.
Duet that shoulda been a solo: Taylor Swift and Miley Cyrus. Next time, just do it yourself Taylor!
Most Bad-Ass moment of the night: when Kid Rock flashed his OWN mugshot on the giant screen during his own performance.
Biggest disappointment: well, let's just say the evidence is still pending, Mr. Brown.
Love this idea. A guy asked his girlfriend to describe the plot of the original Star Wars trilogy. His girlfriend, Amanda, has ONLY see bits and pieces of the movies, but tries her best to tell the story.
REMEMBER: She has never seen a full Star Wars movie, so she's just going on the parts she HAS seen.

Saw this and thought it was hilarious! It's "Prop 8! The Musical!" starring Andy Richter, John C. Reilly (from Stepbrothers), Craig Robinson (the Office), Allison Janney (Juno), Maya Rudolph (SNL), Jack Black (Tropic Thunder), Margaret Cho (the Cho Show), and Neil Patrick Harris (How I Met Your Mother). I thought it was great! Check it out:
I don't often write anything personal on my blog, but I've been instructed to do so more often.Â So let me put down my thought for the day, and here it is:
"If you like it, then you shoulda put a ring on it."
The new female anthem! Beyonce tells it like it IS! Ladies, if he doesn't put a ring on it, then MOVE ON to the next guy!
There's just one problem with that. Many of us guys WANT to put a ring on it. But we need you to be patient. Now, don't get it twisted. If you've been dating Mr. Right for 5 years and he has given NO indication that a ring is going to be "put on it", then you may be right to move on.
But I plead with you ladies, be patient!Â Many guys WANT to put a ring on it, just as bad as you want it!Â But it takes TIME!Â Not only time to get the confidence in your relationship, but the confidence in himself!Â "Putting a ring on it" means becoming a HUSBAND, and hopefully a father as well. Those are two full-time jobs you don't just undertake on a whim!Â Every man needs time to convince HIMSELF that he can do it, and do it WELL.
In addition, it also takes time FINANCIALLY to put a ring on it, ya dig?Â I don't know if you're aware, but "putting a ring on it" often means "putting a dent in it" with the IT being your bank account.
Not that I have a problem doing that, if you're worth it. But at least give me time to work hard and get you something NICE! For example, a guy might have worked say, at a side job or 2 for almost an entire YEAR to get the money to put a ring on it!Â Now YOU, as a woman, see a man who's distracted by his quest for more money. But ask yourself, what is that money FOR, really?
Can you see the BIG picture here?Â Are you figuring it out yet?
Take it from someone who knows. Ladies, you may continue to shout, "if you like it, then you shoulda put a ring on it!"
But on behalf of the guys who work hard every day and TRY, I will reply, "if you like it, then you gotta put some TRUST in it."
Peace, love, and stuff the bus.
Occasionally on the ZMZ you will hear me or Shag refer to "MacGruber". If you don't know who he is, I have posted a couple examples of his work. These are the 2 funniest MacGruber episodes I've ever seen. They're from SNL, and I have to say they're some of the funniest episodes of any show I've ever seen.Â
The videos are posted through HULU, which is a popular video player that NBC uses for all of its shows. You may have to sit through a brief ad first, but wait for it. It's worth it.
You don't want to watch this video.
Seriously, no part of you wants to click "play." I mean, why on earth would you want to watch two geeky guys spoil the endings to 100 movies in less than five minutes? That would be crazy! Bonkers! Bananas!
Just in case you change your mind, though, I'm going to embed the video below. You can hate yourself later. Make sure you look at the grey bars above and below the screen for themes, and titles of the films they're spoiling.
