Show and Tell
Middle Eastern Romance
Apparently this 16-year-old girl was flying to Jordan to see some guy she met on MySpace. This guy must have offered her some pretty good candy to get her to fly all the way to the Middle East. The best part of the story is that the girl tricked her parents into letting her get a passport by saying she was going to go on a trip with her friend's parents to Canada. Canada?! How stupid are her parents? I don't think you even need a passport to go there. Talk about being out of touch.
These Guys Are Real Gamers
Next time you guys refer to me as a "gamer" for playing my Xbox, think about this. They're actually setting up a detox clinic in Amsterdam for people addicted to video games. Insert requisite Amsterdam/addiction joke here. But seriously, you can get addicted to video games? Nerds.
Cat Fights on Reality TV
If that last one didn't make you think the world was coming to an end, this one will. Apparently Animal Planet is doing a cat reality TV show where they take ten cats picked from animal shelters all over the country to live in a house. The cats will be voted off until one remains. That one will win an executive-level job with Meow-Mix cat food (executive level job?). I just hope they get a good cross-section of feline society. They obviously need one bulemic/anorexic cat with daddy issues, one cartoonishly gay cat, one angry black cat, one fratty white cat from Georgia, and one cat who is there but never gets shown. I wonder why Fox didn't pick this one up.
Underage Porn in Court
Apparently, in court a judge is going to let the media and public see a video where R. Kelly has sex with an underage girl. Wow. If you're into that sort of thing, head for Chicago.
Dartmouth Frat Under Attack
This one is for Helmet. Apparently that frat at Dartmouth, Alpha Delta, which served as the inspiration for the Deltas in Animal House was raided by police. They apparently carried away ten crates, a computer, and other items. They aren't specifying what was in those crates, but if the rest of the people at Dartmouth are anything like Lord Helmet over here, I bet it's something that R. Kelly can be proud of.
