David Letterman skewers Bill O'Reilly:

Quote
It's either that phenomenon, or simply the desire for revenge, that sent Bill O'Reilly back to David Letterman's couch after Letterman told him earlier this year that "I have a feeling that 60% of what you say is crap."

this story has particular emphasis on the ass
Quote
A man suffered internal burns when he tried to launch a rocket from his bottom on Bonfire Night.

Paramedics found the 22-year-old bleeding and with Black Cat Thunderbolt Rocket lodged inside him when they attended the scene in Sunderland.

He suffered a scorched colon and is now recovering in hospital, where his condition is described as stable.

A spokesman for the North East Ambulance Service (NEAS) said the prank could have been fatal.

Douglas McDougal, from the NEAS, said: "We received a call stating there was a male who had a firework in his bottom and it was bleeding.

"He sustained fairly significant injuries in the fact that there's huge damage to that particular area."

There will always be people who take turns of phrase far too literally -- "blow it out your ass," e.g.

"This incident is very concerning but hopefully an isolated one."


Indeed. No telling what would happen, were this kind of thing to catch on.

WTF?

Quote
Michael Richards exploded in anger as he performed at a famous L.A. comedy club last Friday, hurling racial epithets that left the crowd gasping, and TMZ has obtained exclusive videoof the ugly incident.

Richards, who played the wacky Cosmo Kramer on the hit TV show "Seinfeld," appeared onstage at the Laugh Factory in West Hollywood. Kyle Doss, an African-American, told TMZ he and some friends were in the cheap seats and he was playfully heckling Richards when suddenly, the comedian lost it.

The camera started rolling just as Richards began his attack, screaming at one of the men, "Fifty years ago we'd have you upside down with a f***ing fork up your ass."


It continues.

Huh.  Anyone want to try to guess what the feeble, implausible excuse will be?

a)  "Stress"
b)  Substance abuse
c)  Too many twinkies
d)  Actually hates blacks and felt it was time to come clean
e)  "My enemies are out to get me"

"I was out for a few pops with Mel Gibson before the show and, ahhh, you know..."

Edit: I had made Mel Spanish, which is quite ironic.

Only 60% voted that the shithead is a racist, and that included my vote.

I refuse to vote on whether he or Gibson is worse.

There is a French comedian of African descent, Dieudonné, who has passed from attacking Zionism to full-out anti-Jewish rants. He attended the racist Front National party's congress recently, hoping to make points as a good anti-semite, albeit of the wrong skin tone. But at the same time, Martine Le Pen (the daughter of Jean-Marie) was also making overtures to one of the vigilante Jewish groups (either the local chapter of the Jewish Defence League or Betar) because THEY are anti-Arab. Oy.

Anyone who tries to get racists on their side by telling them to persecute some other ethnic, religious or racial group...  :roll: Oy Gewalt.

I can't watch until the tech genius upgrades me. But I got the gist of the problem from the text.

Where does that come from? I mean, it seems to have come out of nowhere. It makes no sense.

Le Pen's daughter, eg, would have a clear political purpose for what she is doing. But Kramer? Why?

It does seem wierd, even just in the 'astonishingly stupid career killing' way.  WTH was he thinking?  

Inexcusable, but where on earth did it come from?  He's a smart guy, very funny.  If he's not wealthy he needs another agent - Seinfeld was a mega-hit.  What the hell happened?
The pleasures of the table are for every man, of every land, and no matter what place in history or society; they can be a part of all his other pleasures, and they last the longest, to console him when he has outlived the rest.

Heh.  Nice picture of Mr Gibson below the article there.  It's from one of those "Stars Without Their Makeup" spreads, isn't it?

I think they Photoshop'd out the laser beams coming from his eyes, as well as the now-incinerated matzoh ball.

Racism is always pretty irrational, but this seemed why beyond that to me. My only guess right now is actually:

b) Substance abuse
