Gutenberg!, Poking Musicals in the Eye, Opens in NYC
The sound you hear on East 59th Street may be howls of laughter from show fans who appreciate the comic musical's skewering of musical theatre conventions — to say nothing of spoofing lame-brained tunesmiths who haven't a clue what a good musical is.

It is a sad day for the celebrity nudity community. Desperado has mended his last fence.
In our cloistered world, there was nobody more gregarious, generous, and fun-loving than John "Desperado" Moritz of "Desperado's Megalinks" (desperado.graphicsnxs.com). He was perhaps our best ambassador to the outside world. He was only 59.

Turistas, as reviewed by the only true genius of film criticism, The Filthy Critic
There are a hell of a lot of things that Turistas could use more of: original ideas, characters who aren't assholes and coherence. Most of all, though, it could use more tits. Good fucking God, how do you make such a generic exploitation slasher movie on a party beach in Brazil without at least letting us wash down the dogshit with a healthy load of boobs? You do get to see a couple sets of boobs, briefly, in the beginning, and one more set stiffly sitting on the chest of a dead girl toward the end. To me, dead girl nipples don't count, though, even if she's really just acting dead. Watching this movie is like going to a Hooter's and getting a male waiter.

Sports oddities: Texans win with negative passing yardage.
The Texans had a pathetic 124 yards of total offense. They lost two fumbles. They converted 2 out 12 third downs. And they won! Man, the Raiders have to be feelin' mighty good about their day.

Proposed Michigan law makes it illegal to break-up with a pregnant chick
The proposal actually makes it a crime for a man to 'change or attempt to change an existing housing or cohabitation arrangement' with a pregnant significant other, to 'file or attempt to file for a divorce' from his pregnant wife or to 'withdraw or attempt to withdraw financial support' from a woman whom he has been supporting -- if it is determined that the man is doing these things to try to pressure the woman to terminate her pregnancy.The proposal actually makes it a crime for a man to 'change or attempt to change an existing housing or cohabitation arrangement' with a pregnant significant other, to 'file or attempt to file for a divorce' from his pregnant wife or to 'withdraw or attempt to withdraw financial support' from a woman whom he has been supporting -- if it is determined that the man is doing these things to try to pressure the woman to terminate her pregnancy.The proposal actually makes it a crime for a man to 'change or attempt to change an existing housing or cohabitation arrangement' with a pregnant significant other, to 'file or attempt to file for a divorce' from his pregnant wife or to 'withdraw or attempt to withdraw financial support' from a woman whom he has been supporting -- if it is determined that the man is doing these things to try to pressure the woman to terminate her pregnancy.

If you will read that paragraph closely, you'll see that the conditions apply even if the cohabitating male is not the father of the baby!!

Uncyclopedia's list of weapons that don't exist, but should
Oscar Wilde himself once said that the only thing worse than being talked about is being killed by a non-existent weapon.
