Hi. Hello. I’ve just discovered that there are people in the world who are competitive pizza tossers. And they compete in the World Pizza Games, which are like the Olympics for pizza performers. And there are categories like Fastest Dough, Longest Spin, Fastest Box Folding and Dough Freestyle Acrobatics. This is Kzuya Akogi who won the Gold Medal in Dough Freestyle Acrobatics at the 2012 World Pizza Games. His “tossing” is blowing my mind. I need to learn how to do Pizza Dough Freestyle Acrobatics immediately. I wonder if the training schedule is rigorous. I have so much to learn. I think I should start by getting a huge bag of flour.

Do we even need to debate this? Obviously, this supermarket in Australia is haunted. There’s no way that fruit roll-up could have just fallen off that shelf on its own. Not a chance! I’m hoping this means you can still eat food in the afterlife, which would be great news. I have a feeling that if my soul got trapped on Earth, I would be doing pretty much the same thing. Only, I would skip the fruit roll-ups and go right for the ice cream aisle. Ben & Jerry’s Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough. All those calories and none of the consequences? It’s a no-brainer. [Newslite]
Breaking Mel Gibson news! While dining at Madeo restaurant in West Hollywood this week, Mel was informed by his waiter that they only served breadsticks on the weekends. So Mel allegedly took matters into his own hands and bribed the waiter to run down the block and buy him $100 worth of breadsticks. Why? Our guess is as good as yours. “He just loves breadsticks!” a witness theorized. We’re not totally satisfied with that explanation, so we’ve come up with a few of our own. After the jump some ideas about what Mel might be doing with all that bread. [In Touch]

Take note: just in case you are planning to see “The Hunger Games” this weekend — I think most people are, right? — legendary sex advice columnist Dr. Ruth (yes, she’s still alive and kicking!) took to Twitter to issue a warning! She says that the flick’s violent nature makes it a bit of a boner killer. The good doctor recommends that you and your date bone before the movie. We thank her for the advice.
Last night, “an unidentified woman” flour-bombed Kim Kardashian at a red carpet event in Hollywood. Paramedics were called to the scene as a precaution, but the only things injured were her hair, clothing and makeup. Kim refused treatment and instead made a joke: “I said to my makeup artist, I wanted more powder and that’s a whole lot of translucent powder right there.” Bada-boom! Hotel security detained the feisty flour-bomber, but released her after Kim declined to press charges. She’s so magnanimous, that one. We’re glad she wasn’t harmed. Kim isn’t the only celeb who has survived a public “bombing” (I’m talking, of course, about bombs made out of non-hazardous materials). Click through to see some more celebrities who got bombed.
