Everyone's Favorite Game (or Maybe Just Mine)

Gadhafi was on his way
to the Grammys, but
had to change his plans.
Thanks to the Egyptians, people in many countries in the middle east have decided that they too can demand freedom.  As it turns out, the leaders of these countries disagree.  These leaders don't feel that everyone needs adequate food, shelter, education or the right not to be shot on the street.  Currently leading the pack, in a bid for craziest M*&%#@  F*&$%# on the planet, is Moammar Gadhafi.  His supporters have spent two days shooting anyone they happen to come across on the streets.  He has vowed to to die a martyr and fight to the "last drop of blood."  Awesome.  I am not 100% sure Moammar understands what it is to be a martyr.  I think there has to be more than like 5 or 6 people who think the cause you died for was just.

As you know, I love to play Not News.  Despite all that is going on in Libya and the rest of the middle east, it was waaayyyy easier to find out what's happening on the Not News front.  It's actually amazing the amount of Not News people can come up with rather than report on real news (Justin Bieber had big headline, Gadhafi had small mention in "other news). 

I don't think a 16 year old boy
who wants to get rid of his
girly hairstyle is really news.

Speaking of Justin, if you have not already heard - he got his haircut in a new style.  You will see the picture I posted has TMZ across the middle.  They seem to be worried that someone will try to scoop this story.  Don't worry that oil prices have skyrocketed - Justin's hair is being "doled out" to various charities to raise money.  I am picturing this hair being used to make "life-like" Justin dolls  (like Stark.Raving.Mad.Mommy's Stabbity Nana doll).  Alarming.

Next Not News story is about the couple, who is not "overly religious," who just realized that the chair they've had for 10 years has a small patch of scratched wood that appears to look like Jesus.  They are considering it a blessing from God.  That's the whole story.  The spot didn't talk.  It didn't heal anyone.  There was a picture and a video of the chair not doing anything.  Where must they live that a reporter could find time to come discuss this with them?

I have included the link of Matt Damon and Emily Blunt being interviewed/playing the Yes/No game.  Apparently Matt has never seen Ben Affleck's penis, but may have held it.  Of course this isn't news, but certainly worth knowing about.  Again, alarming.  I will not include a picture here.

Leading the pack for most snore-y boring piece of Not News is that Gwyneth Paltrow was on the beach in Barbados, in a bikini.  This article had two pictures of Gwyneth looking fit and trim in an appropriate looking bikini.  It said she had been spending time playing with her kids (Apple and Moses - those names are more of a story).  This was a PopEater story.  You are telling me in the world of entertainment, they couldn't come up with anything more interesting?  Isn't our pal Charlie Sheen sneaking out of his at-home-rehab to drink with hookers?  See if you can find anything on that.

Jon apparently says he will look for a
real job, but I don't know what he's going
 to do to be less creepy.

In what promises to be the yuckiest Not News today...I can hardly even say it ...The Gosselins "miss each other."  You can go to the link to read about it.  All I have to say is that if they get back together I may actually puke.  Really??  Really??  WTF?!?!?  Even if you gave each of them 15 minutes and 15 minutes for each of their kids - their time would still be up. 

Keith when he was 23

I just had to add this picture...don't you think Keith Richards looks a lot like Moammar Gadhafi?  Have these two ever been seen together?  Suprisingly, even though Keith does not live in a third world country, he looks a lot more worse for wear than Moammar.  I guess being a dictator is less stressful than touring, doing drugs, and marrying younger women.  Who knew?


  1. What? No Twilight Not News? I care about Twilight almost as much as I do about Bieber. In other not news... John Travolta went out with out his wig! Link below. If you don't already, you should "like" Gawker on FB for tons of news/not news updates.

  2. still working on the posting comments thing

  3. Catching up on my reading ... this one will have me giggling all day.
