Chest Bumps: Definitely Not Presidential Behavior

I mean, let's be honest. At this point, there are few things that Ol' Dubya could do to surprise or disappoint us more. If I saw a picture of President Bush getting a lapdance from a transvestite stripper in a seedy club in Bangkok, honesty, I'd probably just flip over to the Lakers article.

...That being said, here's a little something to make you shake your head (probably not for the last time, mind you). Below is a picture of W chest bumping a new Air Force Academy graduate at the USAF graduation ceremony yesterday in Colorado Springs, CO.

Yep. You can take the boy out of the frathouse. But you can't take the frat out of the boyhouse. I mean, White House. ...I mean. Wait... dammit.

Whatever, Bush is an idiot.

No, Sue... What The Fuck Are YOU Doing?

Last night on the NBC Nightly News in New York, longtime anchor woman Sue Simmons apparently didn't realize her mic was still on right before they cut to commercial...

[Sorry, looks like NBC has gone around and made everyone take down the clip... But basically, Sue Simmons screamed "What the FUCK are you doing?!" while her mic was on during a live broadcast. It was hilarious.]

Just goes to show... Make sure your mic is off before cursing someone out.

Words to live by.

Do You Suppose She Saw This Coming?

I took this picture on the way to work this morning:

One has to wonder if the owner of that sign saw this coming...

Scarlett: Stick to Acting, Please.

Most of us know of Scarlett Johansson as that cute, blonde, big bossomed actor in those movies. If anyone was curious to know if she should stick with that or perhaps branch out into some tangentially related, yet practically speaking completely different career, here is proof positive that she SHOULD NOT. I give you, the first video from Scarlett's new album featuring the short blonde one (yes, she's tiny, people) singing a horrible cover of Tom Wait's "Falling Down":

I mean, I had heard some people talking about how bad she was at singing and read a review here and there about it. But man. This really REALLY blows. It's proof, once again, that just because you can act, doesn't mean you can sing. Or vice versa for that matter. It's like the late, great comedian Mitch Hedberg once said, after describing how people ask him to do acting gigs just because they've seen him on stage at a comedy club:
"That's like working really hard your whole life to be a chef and after you finally achieve it, somebody comes and says, 'Great -- can you farm?'"

Maybe Scarlett should try farming...
