Book cracks
Religious scholars have long found theological errors in the fictitious Da Vinci Code book. Now, apparently, some Australian officials have actually found crack there too.

Cold Turkey

Foul play
A Scottish soccer player has opted not to have surgery for a knee injury and instead rely on the good grace of God to heal his wounds. Man, has this guy been hanging out with Mel Gibson?

Jesus. Tonight after Joey.
In the wake of a post-Friends ratings slump, NBC is considering a sitcom starring a "contemporary, cool" Jesus figure who helps an Episcopal minister with his pill popping problems. Sounds like a real gut buster.

Get Thee To A Nunnery
Madonna hit off a London Purim party last week dressed as a nun, with beau Guy Ritchie in-tow playing the Pope. You'd think she'd have dressed up like her "Kabbalic" name-sake, Esther. Oh, but how cliche that'd have been. Oh so more cliche than a nun, obviously.

Ashton Kutcherovich
Despite being a devout follower of Kabbalah, Ashton Kutcher was unable to impose his religious beliefs in his new flick Guess Who. Apparently, his character in the film was originally supposed to be Jewish, but those scenes were later cut out. In fact, rumor has it that the studio spent $100,000 to have Kutcher's Kabbalah red string bracelet removed from every scene. Although he will be dating the very Jewy Amanda Peet in his upcoming romantic comedy.

Directing traffic
Actor Zach Braff is really getting in the directing spirit. First the Scrubs star, who achieved critical acclaim last year with his directorial debut Garden State, directed a recent episode of the medical NBC dramedy. He's also working on a "Goonies style" feature film with his brother. Now comes word the Jewish thespian will be directing the next music video for pop star Gavin DeGraw. So, if he's so busy, how does he have time for girlfriend Mandy Moore?

Strange bedfellows
HBO acquires the comapany that distributed The Passion. Maybe they'll have some synergy. We can just see Larry David and Jesus in a sequel.

Fat is phat
Leonard Nimoy, who created a big stink when he published his 2002 book of nude woman wearing nothing but a tallit and tefillin, wants to publish another book. But this one will contain nude photos of fat women. Nimoy will be focusing his lens on members of a heavyweight burlesque group, "The Fat Bottom Revue," who he says are "interested in fat liberation." And the search for Spock continues...

Fake news, real jail cell
Jon Stewart had to bail his wife, veterinary technician Tracey McShane, out of jail Thursday, after she was arrested in New York for driving with a suspended license. According to the Daily Show host's spokesman, "She wasn't speeding. But the police discovered that she had a suspended license. She didn't even realize it. She paid a ticket last week. But apparently her check hadn't been processed."

I love you, Kabbalah
In what has to be one of the best Kabbalah endorsements ever, Britney Spears has posted her gratitude to the mystical cult on her Web site. "There came a point where not even my family or my advisors had the answers I needed," the newly married singer wrote. "The answers I was looking for were all in my heart. Through Kabbalah, I was able to look within myself, clear all the negative energy and turn my life around." Aw ... it almost wants to make you puke.

Divine inspiration
Prosecutors say that Mel Gibson's stalker was breaking into the actor/director's home because God told him to go pray there. Ah yes ... when you have a religion where anyone can claim divine communication, you end up with freaks like this.

Poor Ari
The autobiography of former White House Press Secretary Ari Fleischer is getting a chilly reception in the Beltway. Maybe that explains why Fleischer is travelling to JCC's across the country to promote the book in front of a more friendly audience.
