Attention! New Traffic Laws!

These may be valid only in California, but I thought they were worth sharing anyway. I don’t know why new traffic laws aren’t advertised more, but they’re not. Probably so the government can make more money on tickets. But that’s just my theory. 1. Unlawful use of the carpool lane – the 1st time is $1068.50 (NOT the $271, currently posted on most highways). The 2nd time is double that at $2137.00. The 3rd time it’s tripled, and the 4th time means your license will be suspended. 2. Incorrect lane change – $380. Don’t cross solid...

R.I.P. Papa Denny Doherty (1940-2007)

The world lost another pioneering singer/songwriter today (1.19) when Denny Doherty, a founding member of The Mamas and The Papas, died after a short undisclosed illness. He passed away at his home in Mississauga, Ontario near Toronto, at the age off 66. The Mamas and The Papas were a Grammy winning folk/rock group off the Hippie Era, known for such classics as “Monday, Monday” and “California Dreamin’”. The band also included the late Mass Cass (Elliot), who died of a heart attack at the age of 32 in 1974, and Michelle and John Phillips, who were married for part...

Lindsay Lohan’s Not A Drunk, She Just Enters Rehab Like One

It was only a matter of time, really. I mean, is anyone actually surprised? In case you haven’t heard, Lindsay Lohan has officially entered rehab. Around 2:30pm yesterday she checked herself into the Wonderland Center* for treatment. I wonder if they have a Mother/Daughter program Lindsay can do with your mom. From what I hear, Dina could use some help too. Although I wish Lindsay Lohan the best, I’m certainly not going to hold my breath until she’s “recovered”. It’s Hollywood. She’s young. She’ll be drinking again. Mark my words,...

Always Remember Martin Luther King, Jr.

Today is Martin Luther King Day. I wish the non-violent revolutionary was still here on Earth. We could really use him right about now. What would he have to say? About the war in Iraq? About sex on TV? About all the race related violence that is sadly still prevalent? …Five score years ago, a great American, in whose symbolic shadow we stand signed the Emancipation Proclamation. This momentous decree came as a great beacon light of hope to millions of Negro slaves who had been seared in the flames of withering injustice. It came as a joyous daybreak to end the long night...

Did You Hear The One About The Electrocuting Moles?

Garden moles have now joined the animal revolution. It is being reported that a 63-year-old man in Zingst, Germany was killed last Thursday after electrocuting himself on a high-voltage cable meant to rid his garden of moles. But I think that’s just the cover story. I think the man, a retired construction foreman, was indeed trying to install the 380-volt cable and metal ground spikes in order to kill the moles, however, I think the moles got wind of his impending actions and made their move first. And what a move it was. According to police spokesman Uwe Werner, there was...

AAA To The Rescue!

In light of the upcoming three-day weekend, I thought I would share with you a wonderful new service from AAA. Thanks to the national automobile club, drivers can now look up the gas stations along their travel route, avoiding, hopefully, being one of the 2.5 million people who run out of gas and need a roadside fill up from AAA. AAA’s free online mapping tool, TripTik, now has the ability to find the nearest and cheapest gas for about 100,000 U.S. locations along your route. Slide your mouse over each location and the prices for all levels of fuel pop up. The pricing information...

The Beckham’s Are Coming! The Beckham’s Are Coming!

It’s British Invasion 2007! Soccer superstar David Beckham has signed a $250 million dollar five-year contract with the Los Angeles Galaxy. His current contract with Real Madrid will expire at the end of June. Before that, he was captain and key member of Manchester United. In a statement released Thursday, Beckham said, “I am proud to have played for two of the biggest clubs in football and I look forward to the new challenge of growing the world’s most popular game in a country that is as passionate about its sport as my own.” The hilarious people over at VH1’s...

The Animal Revolution Continues…

Well, the revolting pigs are at it again. The swine soldiers of the animal revolution have moved from Norfolk, England to Belgrade, Serbia. This time, they burned down a house! Talk about pissed off piggies. The three pigs, obviously angry with man and ready to fight, broke out of their pen and headed towards the house. They strolled into the living room and knocked the TV over, which then burst into flames; the fire quickly spread through out the house. Sadly, unlike the pigs in England, these pigs perished thus becoming martyrs* for their cause. Their farmer master, however,...

What ARE They Wearing? Maternity Edition.

I think pregnant women are beautiful; but not when they wear outfits like these. On the left we have Tori Spelling wearing some sort of potato sack rodeo clown pants. On the right is Brooke Burke, who gave birth to a girl the other day. Something tells me that the shirt she is wearing was not from the maternity department. Attention!! Being pregnant does not give you the go ahead to look trashy and/or just plain stupid. There are plenty of places to find cute maternity clothes. Like ‘A Pea in the Pod’ – not only do they have an awesome name, they’ve got great clothes....

Nappers Unite!

Raise your hand if you agree that naptime is wasted on the young. Keep your hand up if you’re totally jealous of the countries that have siestas. Well now you can add Thailand to that list. In an effort to increase worker productivity and afternoon energy, a municipal office in the Pathumwan district of central Bangkok has created a lunchtime “nap room”; complete with wood paneling, pleasantly scented flowers, soft music, and strict rules banning talking and cell phones. As the clock hits noon, the civil servant employees sit around a conference table with their heads...

Did You Hear The One About The Swine Gang?

I am really starting to see a worrisome trend within the animal kingdom recently. Both wild and domestic animals are defying Mother Nature and exhibiting great angst against the human race. I guess it was just a matter of time. One could argue that the more man evolves and progresses and becomes “smarter”, the more the animal kingdom seeks revenge. There are a whole slew of animals that are now extinct because of the human race. Extinct — as in never ever coming back. Oh sure, there are many species of animal that were defeated in the survival of the fittest game and...

Angelina Jolie Hates Brad Pitt’s Baby

Rebel actress Angelina Jolie, 31, has done and said some pretty far-out things over the years. But I think the statement she made in an interview for February’s issue of Elle U.K. takes the cake. She has graduated from wearing a vile around her neck containing her husband’s blood (actor Billy Bob Thorton for those of you who may have forgotten), to admitting that she doesn’t love her baby with boyfriend Brad Pitt as much as she loves the two kids she adopted on her own. “I think I feel so much more for Madd and Zee because they’re survivors, they came through so much....

John Black Attacked! Drake Hogestyn Fights Back!

Actor Drake Hogestyn, who has played John Black on the NBC soap opera “Day of Our Lives” for over 20 years, was attacked on New Year’s Eve. According to police reports, Carl Raymond Cheney, ran into the actor’s backyard in Malibu while carrying a Bible and screaming, “Where is he? I will cast him out!” and referred to the actor by his character’s name. The actor has obtained a restraining order against the crazed fan, claiming that Cheney “physically tried to exorcise the devil from [him].” Cheney ran into Hogestyn’s yard while the actor was on a ladder...
