Odd News Roundup

So, in a quick search of odd news and crap like that, we find the following bizarre items:

Wendy's Finger Lady sentenced to 9 years in prison:
Ayala, 39, who had been a Las Vegas resident, had initially claimed that she discovered the finger after buying the bowl of chili last March. She hired a lawyer and complained publicly about the experience, attracting wide attention to the seemingly bizarre incident.

A judge in Santa Clara Superior Court sentenced Anna Ayala and her husband, Jaime Plascencia, to nine years imprisonment for their role in the Wendy’s scam, which caused a sharp fall in sales at the third-largest U.S. burger chain.

>>>: Me thinks she will have more than a finger to worry about in prison. Just a feeling.

Skating with the Stars - More head trauma than actual entertainment
The celebrities have been reasonably well chosen — it’s a good mix of the formerly famous like Jenner, the formerly infamous like Bridges, and the famous-only-in-Los-Angeles like Barberie. (She is probably the only person still listing “Good Morning, Miami” on her CV.) In other words, they’ve done a good job finding people who are unimportant enough that they’re willing to fall down, but famous enough that it’s fun to watch them fall down.

>>>: and to think that FOX cancelled the smartest show on TV, Arrested Development, in favor of this crap. Talk about marketing to the lowest common denominator. They must be counting on the fact that the people who are watching this steaming pile of mindlessness are still watching 1982 televisions, the ones where you would actually have to get OUT of the barcalounger to change the channel. Heaven forbid that we should actually be allowed to watch a situation comedy WITHOUT A LAUGH TRACK. My goodness, we might not know when to laugh!!

Capt. Kirk sells kidney stones to casino
Actor William Shatner has sold his kidney stone for $25,000, with the money going to a housing charity, it was announced Tuesday.
Shatner reached agreement Monday to sell the stone to GoldenPalace.com.

>>>: Must...sell...kidney...stone...no...other...choice.

Drew Barrymore: Fashion Misguided
I have no idea who dressed this unfortunate individual for the Golden Globes on Monday night, but holy crap. She obviously never saw Kermit singing "it's not easy being green". She needs new representation, or a mirror. Somebody please give her a role that will make her more than $30.00 so she can finally purchase some underware. My award for her: Worst Supported Actress.

Heath Ledger speaks his mind
Heath Ledger has lashed out at the U.S. theaters that banned “Brokeback Mountain” as “immature” and “hilarious.” The Aussie actor made the comments after learning that two theaters in the heavily Mormon state of Utah have refused to show his flick — which some have dubbed The Gay Cowboy movie. “Personally, I don’t think the movie is [controversial] but I think maybe the Mormons in Utah do. I think it’s hilarious and very immature of a society,” Ledger said, reports the Australian paper The Herald Sun.

>>>: he's right.

Well, I guess that's all for now - but I'm sure there will be more later. I'm a busy boy today.
