I just heard about this tonight on The Colbert Report. I thought it was a joke so I Googled "Megatron airport."
The story is true. I don't know whether to laugh or cry.
Dangerous New Global Terrorist Group Identified
New group targeted by Western governments as Al Qaeda fades into the background
Monday, June 2, 2008
A dangerous new terrorist group has been identified by the governments of the Western world who fear it already has operatives all over the globe and is an imminent threat to security.
The new group has been identified as the "T-shirt wearing terrorists".
I jest of course, the government has not identified a new axis of evil that will keep you scrubbing at your soiled underwear for another few years. However, federal officials, police and security guards the world over continue to harass and arrest innocent people going about their daily business for wearing what are deemed to be "offensive" or "threatening" t-shirts.
The latest case was reported in the British press today.
An airline passenger has claimed that a security guard threatened to arrest him because he was wearing a T-shirt showing a cartoon robot with a gun.
Brad Jayakody, 30, from London, said he was stopped from passing through security at Heathrow's Terminal 5 after his Transformers T-shirt was deemed 'offensive.'
Mr Jayakody said the first guard started joking with him about the Transformers character depicted on his French Connection T-shirt.
'"Then he explains that since Megatron is holding a gun, I'm not allowed to fly,' he said.
Another potential terrorist was apprehended when a lawyer was arrested and charged with trespassing at a public mall in the state of New York after refusing to take off a T-shirt he had just purchased at the mall bearing the words "Give Peace A Chance".

James McAvoy (#45)

Adam Levine (#81) - puh-LEEZE!
Shia LaBeouf (#79) - who took this picture? That's just nasty, that.

I must admit, I don't know who half these

I don't know why THIS fine gent wasn't on the list:
Yes, that's Billy "fcukin' " Idol. Still a badass at 52. And still sex on legs. Aged to a fine vintage like good wine. Yum.

[Did I not post this already?? Apparently I forgot to. It's old now, but the videos are still hilarious]
If you haven't seen the Tom Cruise video, you HAVE to watch it because it's so bizarre you'll think these parodies are exaggerating. Scarily enough they are not.
My Stitch n' Bitch friends brought these to my attention.

He should have laid off the ganja.
Although, who knows. It doesn't really look like pot smoke in the infamous picture (which I won't post here but you can see it here.
I liked Jason - what a great smile. In fact, I'm going to grab my review of American Idol from the Habesha Child blog and post it here, it was that
clever long and I'm that lazy:
David Cook? Needs a bath and a shave. Plus I DO NOT find him original. AT ALL. Waste of space. He needs to shut up.
David Archuleta? He’s a mere puppy. He sings like he still needs to hit puberty. Plus, I could not listen to a whole CD of him breathing his way through one ballad after another. Waste of space. *yawn*
Syesha? Good voice but not great. I find her the least offensive of the bunch. Plus, I LOVED that orange dress she wore Tuesday night. LOVE. IT.
Jason? He was very nice to look at - beautiful, infectious smile. I think he was happy to go, though. He had a nice but not very powerful voice. Not enough range, I’m afraid. He should talk to Whoopie’s stylist about trimming the dreds.
Overall, this season of AI is a snorefest. After the departures of Michael Johns and then Brooke White, I just couldn’t be arsed to watch.
The finale will be about as thrilling as the one where Taylor Hicks won.SOUL PATROL!! my bleedin' foot!

Sheesh, I must be the world's biggest sap.
I just saw Amy Winehouse performing on the Grammys (live via satellite from London) and at the end of the performance I was bawling like a baby.
She not only sounded great, but she looked great (I read she went to the dentist yesterday and had a crown fitted so she's lost that gap-toothed crack addict look). Other than being painfully thin, she looked healthy and made some great, playful eye contact with the camera.
It was at the end when she said thanks and that she was honored to be able to perform, that I started crying. I just wish her all the best and I hope she can successfully overcome her drug problems. I think she is an extremely talented young woman.
p.s. Tina Turner can STILL ROCK IT!! She looks a bit like my mom 10-15 years ago (if she was into the rock and roll).
p.p.s. I LOVE Andy Williams. How great to see him tonight!

The perfect Valentine's chocolate. Or maybe not.
I honestly don't understand this product. Why is it here? Who's idea was it? I know that chocolate can be as addictive as crack, but this is just silly.
Can you imagine biting into one of these bad boys?
Not I. And I love chocolate.
...........It's Belgian chocolate you say?
