The Phoenix Mayor?

Here’s something none of us ever thought we’d hear. According to The Washington Post, Rob Ford, the embattled and admittedly addicted mayor of Toronto, has a decent chance of being reelected.

Let’s recap. Rob Ford has admitted to abusing drugs and alcohol. He’s been at times completely out of control while in office. He’s checked himself into rehab, emerging just a couple of months ago to pick up his campaign where he left off.

Back in June, 63% of the people in Toronto wanted him to resign. That number has dropped to about 50% - still a lot of people! – but according to the poll numbers, Ford is now just three percentage points away from the front runner.

Statistically, that’s dead even.

Amazing how he seems to be rising out of the ashes of his self-destruction.

Doctor Doom Leaked!

Sci-fi geeks are burning up Twitter and other social media platforms with pictures of the new Doctor Doom from the upcoming reboot of Fantastic Four.
Couple of questions here:
  1. Does the original Fantastic Four merit a do-over? I think not.
  2. Isn’t Doctor Doom a super villain? So why does he look like a cross between Dorothy’s Tin Man and Sir Alec Guinness’s Obi Wan Kenobi?
Take a look – maybe you’ll see something I’m missing.

Peyton Manning: Vicious Taunter?

The National Football League yesterday announced that Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning was being fined $8200 for taunting Houston Texans’ safety DJ Swearinger during a pre-season game.

Swearinger had been flagged for tackling Wes Welker, who ended up getting a concussion on the play.

Manning got in Swearinger’s face mask and dropped an F-bomb.

Boom. $8200. Manning says he won’t appeal the ruling.

He even called it “money well spent” according to one source.

Those aren’t pads on Manning’s shoulders. Those are major-league chips!

Beyonce's Jedi Mind Trick?

Mathew Knowles, father of Beyonce and Solange, the famous feuding siblings, says everything that’s happened with and between his daughters this summer is nothing more than a Jedi mind trick.

During an interview yesterday, PapaBey was asked about the infamous elevator fight, and about the rumors of the possible royal split of Queen Bey and Jay Z.

“Everybody’s talking about it,” he said. And sales for the On The Run Tour went up, plus Solange’s album sales increased by 200%.

All because of the Jedi mind trick.

In case you don’t know your Star Wars lore, PapaBey’s suggesting that his kids have taken over our minds, and fooled us into doing exactly what they want.

“These are not the droids we’re looking for” after all…

Near Water Much?

Both the Pacific and Atlantic coasts of the United States are being pounded by heavy surf caused by tropical storms.

To the east, Hurricane Cristobal. To the west, Tropical Storm Marie.

Both are causing much larger waves than normal, to the delight and peril of surfers and body-boarders.

Check out this video showing a large group of people on the California coast, iPhones and cameras held over their heads to capture the ocean’s fury.

And watch what happens when the ocean catches them with their pants down.

Friends Reunion, Sort Of

A lot of fans of Friends have been pining for a reunion show.

This week, Jimmy Kimmel made that wish come true – well, halfway anyway.

A huge fan of the show, Jimmy wrote some fan fiction, casting himself as Ross, and somehow convincing Jennifer Aniston, Courtney Cox and Lisa Kudrow to perform it with him on an exact replica of the kitchen set.

It’s fun to see the ladies together – too bad the skit wasn’t a bit funnier…

Chelsea Gets a Wet Send-Off

Among Chelsea Handler’s funniest moments on Chelsea Lately were her famous shower scenes with celebrities like Sandra Bullock and Conan O’Brien.

To get in the spirit, the celebrities would get naked and pixelated with Chelsea, in some flat-out hilarious scenes.

In her farewell to the E! Network, Chelsea was joined in the shower by a fully-clothed and shower-capped Ellen DeGeneres.

And honestly, it’s one of the most hilarious five minutes on TV in a long time – and a great way to retire the bit. Unless of course it happens to come up again in Chelsea’s new Netflix show.

Does it border on brilliant? You know what? I’m going to go ahead and say yes it does!

Check it out – but be warned! It might be a little NSFW.

Are They or Aren't They?

86th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals
Social media is exploding this morning with the Brangelina story.

Just about everyone is
reporting that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were secretly married in France over the weekend.

This is not to be confused with the secret wedding they supposedly had last Christmas.

This weekend's news came from a spokesman for the couple, according to most sources.


So, maybe they're married.

Maybe they're not.

And maybe, just maybe, we really don't care anymore...

Full House Coming Back? Have Mercy!

According to Variety and a few other sources, people in LaLaLand are talking about bringing Full House back.

Yes, THAT Full House.

It’s just in talks right now, but John Stamos (you remember, Uncle Jessie?) and the show’s creator, Jeff Franklin, are spearheading the move.
Still a couple of things to work out:
  • Can we get Bob Saget to play Danny Tanner as Bob Saget, one of the dirtiest (and funniest) stand-ups around?
  • Can we get Dave Coulier to play Joey Gladstone as anything but a stand-up comic?
  • And can we get Mary-Kate and Ashley Olson to play Michelle and Michelle’s evil twin?
That’s a show I could wrap my head around…

Here’s 11 minutes worth of clips labelled “Full House Very Funny Moments.” Tell me how long it takes before you’re forced to hit the PAUSE button…

Lingerie League Heats Up

Have you heard about the Lingerie Football League? Women put on shoulder pads, helmets and not much more and play football.

Yeah, it’s like that.

When the final whistle blew in the LFL’s Eastern Conference Championship game between the Atlanta Steam and the Jacksonville Breeze, Atlanta came out on top, 20-12, and headed for the league finals.

But as the teams lined up for the obligatory post-game handshakes, things got a little out of hand.

A Breeze player called a Steam player a punk-butt female dog – well, her actual words were a little more harsh than that, but it’s certainly something you could hear on network TV after 10PM.

But, that was enough for both benches to clear and for everyone to start hurling insults and punches and more. There’s video of the altercation attached to this story in The New York Daily News – click on it, but be warned, it’s not at all safe for work.

For the finals, the league owners are thinking about filling the stadium with Jello or mud and just let the girls fight one another instead of playing football. That ought to help attendance.
