My Quickies (v.4.12.10)


- Where's Charlie?: The NY Daily News did a 'Where Are They Now?' featuring the original cast of the classic film 'Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory'. Something about the guy who played Augustus being an accountant makes perfect sense. (NYDN)

- Defending Tiger: Jim Carrey manages to blame Elin Nordegren for Tiger Wood's affairs since she "had to be a willing participant". And the douchbag of the day is... (E!)

- 'FNL' Fresh Meat: 'Friday Night Lights' continues to be realistic and rotate its high school cast by adding a hipster character who fell into football. Though a hipster in Smalltown Texas might stretch that realistic thing a bit. (EW)

- Fake Prom: At what lengths will the town of Itawamba, Mississippi go to to not allowing lesbian teenager Constance McMillen to bring her girlfriend her high school prom? Staging a fake prom (that including disabled kids) while holding a secret prom for all the 'normal' kids. Like I've always said, sometimes you just have to wait for all the ignorant people to die off before the world can be a better place. (Huffington Post)

- As The Pyramid Turns: CBS is mulling over the idea of replacing their cancelled soap 'As The World Turns' with the classic gameshow, Pyramid. Judging from the poor ratings of 'Let's Make A Deal', they might as well filed this under "Things That Are Obviously Timeslot Fillers'. (EW)

- Hookers Or Us: An Ohio man was arrested after he reported to the police he had $50 stolen from him at a White Castle bathroom... only it turns out to be false complaint when it was discovered the man was unsatisfied what $50 got him from his hooker. (Smoking Gun)

- Facebook Lawsuit: The strange lawsuit of the day goes to a teen in Arkansas who's suing his mother for changing the password to his Facebook account after she slandered him on the online community network. (KTLA)

- Conan and George: TBS certainly got a big boost today signing Conan O'Brien to host a late night show starting November. Somewhere, FOX executives can be heard cursing Ted Turner. (EW)
