Actor Jason Bateman has been in the news a lot lately for allegedly getting some unfair celebrity treatment while recently standing in line for the latest Apple iPhone. According to witnesses at the scene, an Apple Store employee escorted Bateman from his position in the early morning line that had formed outside the store in anticipation of the new product, bringing him inside to give him the first new iPhone sold at the location. Though many iPeople have been in an iTizzy ever since the i...Incident, Bateman has defended his actions, as well as further line-cutting behaviors, by stating that he has adopted a new faith that sees cutting in line as a sacrament. Bateman has since been seen moving ahead of others with impunity at his local Jamba Juice, a busy men's restroom at a movie theater and even at his doctor's office. When approached by interviewers about this behavior, Bateman said, "When I adopted this way of life I knew not everyone would understand. That young man at the Apple Store is a sign to me that things are getting better in this country for my people, though. He recognized my needs and acted accordingly. Peace be upon him."
62-foot tall statue of Jesus coming out of the ground in the middle of an otherwise empty stretch of Interstate Highway 75. Or at least you could until Monday June 14th. A recent series of thunderstorms tearing through Ohio claimed the statue with lightning-induced fire late in the night, burning the whole thing to cinders.
After his domestic dispute with wife Brooke Mueller and subsequent stint in rehab, actor Charlie Sheen has made a plea bargain with the state of Colorado to spend up to 30 days in jail for his behavior on Christmas Day 2009. Sheen may only spend half of that time incarcerated if he maintains good behavior, which his lawyer guarantees won't be a problem. Sheen has consistently met the prospect of time in prison with the same lack of emotion as his recently renewed contract on CBS's astoundingly bland sitcom Two and a Half Men. "Two more years on that... that show," said Sheen in a recent press conference, "My only consolation is that the very premise puts a time limit on the series. I mean, when the kid grows up, they wouldn't replace him. Would they? Tell me they won't..." Sheen then trailed off into a series of mumbles and occasional sobs.
