Woman Jumped For Crappy Karaoke Singing

I have listened to some pretty bad karaoke performances in my lifetime. Some have left me feeling disappointed; others have inspired me to stuff a napkin in my ear to dull the sound, but never have I felt like inflicting bodily harm on the performer.

Joe Francis Assaults A Chick. Again

Joe Francis is the guy we’d most like to vote off planet Earth.
