Pauly Shore is putting himselfother reporters himself to shame with his coverage of the scandal at the FLDS compound for RipeTV.com. From MSNBC.com:
Shore’s intentions might be good, but he isn’t making a good impression on some of the reporters there. “During an interview, one of the people from YFZ was saying they were going to take a DNA test, and Pauly interrupted, saying, ‘You think you’re gonna pass, buddy?’ He’s not letting anyone ask questions,” said one veteran newsman. Shore’s response: “They are asking dumb questions.”

"It's the kind of book I would love to read if I could move my eyes to see it." -- Joan Rivers on Dr. Michael Salzhauer's My Beautiful Mommy, a children's book about plastic surgery and post-op healing.

"I fear the Internet for so many reasons. The medium is the message, and the medium has invaded our home and taken over our minds. ...Totalitarianism is not far in our future, and the next generation will go down that road happily." --Director Barry Sonnenfeld at the National Association of Broadcasters Show. I smell the premise for a new movie there, Barry.
Latter-Day Jews: They said it
"I want you to understand that we have been put in a compound ... 170 women and children in a building that was 100 feet by 40 feet with two bathrooms. ... We need the public to know that an injustice has been done against us, in the land of the free and the home of the brave. We are being treated like the Jews were when they were escorted to the Nazi camps." -- FLDS member Kathleen, in a highly creepy interview with Anderson Cooper last night.
Of hemorrhoids and Hamas The New York Times's radio station WQXR is taking flack for refusing to run an ad the American Jewish Committee created to raise awareness of the current plight of Israelis. From the New York Post:
In the ad, AJC Executive Director David Harris says: "Imagine you had 15 seconds to find shelter from an incoming missile. Fifteen seconds to locate your children, help an elderly relative, assist a disabled person to find shelter. That's all the residents of Sderot and neighboring Israeli towns have. Day or night, the sirens go on. Fifteen seconds later, the missiles, fired from Hamas-controlled Gaza, hit . . . Their aim is to kill and wound and demoralize . . . This is what Israelis experience daily."
...[AJC spokesman Michael] Geller said [WQXR general manager Tom] Bartunek told the AJC the "general tone" didn't meet WQXR guidelines for "decorum," and the station also bans ads for "hemorrhoid cream or sexual potency pills." CBS Radio had no problem with the same spot, which it aired nationally on newsman Charles Osgood's "The Osgood File."
Geller went on to say that if they're going to be schmucks, he'll just take his shekels elsewhere. I'm paraphrasing, of course.

"Because I know there are kids out there, I want to make sure they all know that driving without braking is not something I recommend, unless you have professional clown training or a comedy background, as I do. It is not something I plan to make a habit of." --Jerry Seinfeld after flipping his car last Saturday in the Hamptons. He was not hurt, and his sense of humor appears to still be intact.
I was hoping at first that it was but a cruel April Fool's joke, but alas, Steve Guttenberg has been voted offDancing with the Stars. Here was his last tango (not, unfortunately, in Paris):
How could anyone shrug off such majesty? Steve, you will be missed. If anyone actually watches this show.
