Here's the trailer for De-Lovely: "De-Lovely is an original musical portrait of American composer Cole Porter, filled with his unforgettable songs. In the film, Porter is looking back on his life as if it was one of his spectacular stage shows, with the people and events of his life becoming the actors and action onstage. Through elaborate production numbers and legendary hits like 'Anything Goes,' 'It's De-Lovely,' and 'Night and Day,' Porter's elegant, excessive past comes to light - including his deeply complicated relationship with his wife and muse, Linda Lee Porter." Stars Ashley Judd and Kevin Kline.

Russia's version of the 10 funniest media jokes on April Fools day. Oh, that Stalin. He just loved a genocidal April Fool's prank. Who can forget April 1, 1941 when he told people he was just kidding about flooding seventy towns and villages, then flooded them anyway. "No, I really wasn't kidding, komrades. April Fool!"

The Molvania Tourists Rarely Get to See. Intrepid travelers with no corner of the globe left to conquer could try an adventure holiday in Eastern Europe's hidden jewel -- Molvania. A new guide to 'the land untouched by modern dentistry,' published in Britain on Thursday, lists some of Molvania's highlights, including its nuclear reactor with genuine 1950s-era cracks, and a magnificent zoo with 1,000 animals, all crammed in one cage. Eating out in Molvania -- spiritual home of the polka and whooping cough -- is cheap, but you may have to pay extra for a waiter with a mustache, the guide advises.

They are the tiniest and most tragic victims of the civil war in the former Yugoslavia: Innocent babies born addicted to human blood. Known as the Vampire Babies of the Balkans, an estimated 13,000 such tykes lead dismal existences in orphanages in Bosnia and Herzegovina or are shuttled from one foster home to another.
  • I don't understand why they don't look for foster homes in Romania with nice vampire couples.

Sen. Jim Bunning's re-election campaign apologized Wednesday for what it said was 'a joke' the veteran lawmaker made about his likely opponent this fall, Democrat Daniel Mongiardo, at a Republican dinner last month in Florence. Democrats charged last week that Bunning had told the crowd at the Republican Party's 4th District Lincoln/Reagan Day Dinner that Mongiardo looked like Saddam Hussein's sons 'before they were dead.' Democrats pointed out that of the two sons, Mongiardo only looks like Uday, and he looks much more like him after death.

Bush Speaks, Boy Yawns, Letterman And CNN Get Things Confused. Remember the story Letterman vs The White House? Turns out that the White House said nothing at all. CNN just plain misreported the story. "According to this," he said during the show, referring to an index card in his grasp, "CNN has just phoned and ... the anchorwoman misspoke. They never got a comment from the White House. It was a CNN mistake."

You thought his show was finished. You've been punk'd. Fool me twice: Ashton Kutcher to return to MTV with new 'Punk'd'. Or maybe it is an April Fool's Gag. A punking about a show that does punking on the National Punking Day. I feel like one of Mudd's Robots.

The ever wacky FCC has taken the first step toward investigating Oprah Winfrey after receiving 'more than a few complaints' about her show. Yeah. Forget about terrorism. I won't really feel safe until those steel bars close behind Oprah. With both Oprah and Tommy Chong locked away, our streets will be safe for children once again.

Prince William, the son of the heir to the British throne, is said to be irritated at the publication of photos of him with a fellow student reported to be his first girlfriend. No problem. He can have complete privacy if he changes jobs with me. I'll take the royal life, and the fookin' photographers can snap away.
