Apparently, Bieber Fever and the existence of Biebans is confusing the police. Last week, law enforcement in a Maryland town received a call from a patron at the Mug and Mallet bar saying that Justin Bieber was at the establishment and being served drinks. With word that the 16-year-old Beebs was boozing, the cops cruised over and began searching the bar for “an underage drinker with a bowl haircut and a tiny frame.” When police located the drinker who matched the description, it turned out to be a 27-year-old woman named Katie. The cops mustn’t keep up with the latest issues of Tiger Beat, because they couldn’t tell Katie wasn’t the singing sensation. She said that the police wouldn’t leave until she took out her ID to prove that she and Bieber are not the same person, or even the same sex. I guess it’s a compliment to be mistaken for someone 11 years younger than you, but this also may be a sign that it is time to change your haircut. Regardless, Katie seemed cool with the misunderstanding. She says she gets mistaken for Bieber all the time. Maybe she could become an impersonator? [TMZ] Keep reading »
You’re backpacking through Europe, snapping photo after photo of historical landmarks and luscious scenery, when suddenly you realize: all of your pictures look the same. You’re sick of standing awkwardly in front of museums. Why don’t you just lie down? Click. The latest travel trend is the Lying Down Game (LDG). Started by Gary Clarkson and Christian Langdon, the game has taken off with travelers all over the world and you can now see tourists having someone take a picture of them lying on the ground almost everywhere. There are even rules to the game: The palms of your hands must be flat against your sides, and the tips of your toes must point toward the ground. You can’t even lie on your back: your face must be down. Weird, right? The point is to add a little humor to your traveling adventures and to confuse onlookers. Imagine someone’s shock when you ask politely, “Excuse me. Can you take a picture for me?” and proceed to lie face down in front of them at a scenic mountain overlook. Just keep your mouth closed — the ground is dirty. [Lying Down Game] Keep reading »
Civil liberties nightmare or a f**king great idea? Police in Queensland, Australia, now have the authority to fine citizens $100 to $300 for committing the “public nuisance” of cussing in public. Queensland’s head of state, Anna Bligh, said to expect a 20 percent rise in public nuisance complaints, based on trial programs in South Brisbane and Townsville. Why are Aussies so concerned about naughty language? They’re not. Apparently, swear words are just a moneymaker. Bligh said that targeting public pottymouths (along with those who pee in public and other acts of disorderly conduct) could generate the government some major bucks. Watch your mouths, Aussies!

Yesterday, while 16-year-old sailor Abby Sunderland and her boat, Wild Eyes, were getting rescued in the Indian Ocean, her father, Laurence Sunderland, told The New York Post he signed a contract for a reality TV show, “Adventures in Sunderland,” about his kids. “The show might be about family, it might be about Abigail’s trip. It’s something that was shopped around,” Sunderland told the Post.
But then Laurence Sunderland announced he had cut ties with Magnetic Entertainment, the California production company behind the show. “There is no show at this time, nor will there be,” Sunderland said, acknowledging the company did some initial filming. “They were assuming Abigail was going to die out there,” he said. “They were relying on her dying, and so we cut the ties.” Keep reading »
I am willing to overlook the actions of the bullfighter in this fascinating video because he’s hot — h.o.t. — but it is pretty amusing when he flees from the bull running towards him. Not much of a bullfighter, eh? Apparently, Christian Hernandez, 22, the matador in question, had been gored in the leg in a bullfight a few months previous. So, when this bull went on a stampede, Hernandez promptly turned tail and ran like a small child running from a neighbor dressed up like a ghost on Halloween. Mexico City officials then arrested Hernandez for not fulfilling the duties of his contract as a bullfighter; he was released after paying a fine. Now, everyone’s calling him a coward. Everyone, you know, who doesn’t have the cojones to get into a bull fighting ring in the first place. In any case, Hernandez has had about enough and says he’s retiring. “There are some things you must be aware of about yourself,” he told reporters. “I didn’t have the ability, I didn’t have the [redacted], this is not my thing.” Bottom line of this story? Hernandez is still hot, and I love that pink and gold outfit. You can’t say this wasn’t a teachable moment. [Telegraph] Keep reading »
