Danny DeVito...we have the video and I'll never quite forget the pride he showed at admitting that he and his wife wrecked the Lincoln Bedroom. During the Clinton reign this happened, of course.
We've got some blind items, a heroic rescue of a homeless man from the jaws of an alligator, and goodness, what's going to happen to the Wiggles now?
Finally, yes I do have a scathing opinion of Britney Spears and her crotch shots for attention.

Type in a command in the attached and see what happens ...
Sit, roll over, down, dance, jump, beg
Shake, fetch, play dead etc.
And... it's also cute if you type in a command that's not recognized!
Make sure you type in "Kiss" at the end.
Hope it works for you turn the sound on

GOOGLE-the Dream Job
Wow, everyone should work at a place like Google. Although it doesn't sound all that much different than a Delaware state government office.
Google's HQ, otherwise known as Googleplex, is situated in Mountain view, California in Silicon Valley. Throughout the corridors between the four buildings, there are all sorts of Google memorabilia on display. They even employ guides who specialize in explaining Google's history to people. There are lava lamps everywhere, as well as free coke and candy all over the place. They've also got huge multicolored exercise balls everywhere.
People's workspaces are full of individuality, and the atmosphere is relaxed. There are couches everywhere. People can have a lie down when they need to and take a break.
Google's staff loves sports. The big guns often have meetings at the pool table or in the corridors.
The casual atmosphere in Google HQ can be demonstrated by the fact that staff can bring their pets to work, and the pets are allowed to wander around the office.
Heaps of people have pets at Google HQ.
There's a rule within Google: that there must be food within 100 feet of every employee.
There was once an engineer who felt a bit ripped off about that rule because his nearest food counter was 120 feet away, so he asked for the error to be corrected, tongue in cheek. The relevant department replied: "There's a restaurant right above your desk, and you are definitely less than 100 feet from that one."
This looks more like a toyshop than a workspace!
Rumor has it, a dude who had just joined Google had not been able to find a flat, so he lived at Google HQ for a month. He lived a lot better than Tom Hanks in The Terminal. Meals are provided, couches everywhere, there are showers in the bathrooms, a gym and a swimming machine. There are even pianos in music rooms you could use. Better than the facilities at home! The dude didn't leave Google HQ for a month straight.
It's all fun and games!
Whiteboards at Google HQ are filled with all sorts of great (or not) ideas in all sorts of different languages.
There's free food all over the place, it almost look like a supermarket.
There's also a free laundry room for use for the staff.

Which celebrity divorce is being blamed in some parts on her coke-fueled, 9 a.m. nights out with her L.A. hairdresser?
From: **PopBitch BLIND ITEMS 11/30**
This Hollywood A-list celebrity isn't exactly known for her sanity, but now she's started stalking actors from movies she likes. Russell Crowe has been one of her victims. Smells like she's trying to get under celebrities' skins?
...Good guess. She also had a song called "Celebrity Skin".
Wiggles' Band Member Quits
This Pop Culture tidbit provided just for Kaitlyn Mae. Because goodness the child has all sorts of shirts and clothes items bearing the name "The Wiggles" and in some cases, an actual picture of the band.
Otherwise I would never have heard about this group. Goodness, seems they're losing their YELLOW Wiggle.
Not to worry, there's a backup ready to take over.
Greg Page, who performs as the Yellow Wiggle in the hugely successful Australian preschool band The Wiggles, is leaving the group due to a chronic health condition.
Page suffers from Orthostatic Intolerance, a condition that affects balance, breathing and coordination, the band says in a press release.
“Orthostatic Intolerance”? Never heard of this disease.
Drunken DeVito Honored on "The View"
I know the DeVito flap is history by now. However, I for one am going to continually point out one telling statement this little creep made during his shameful appearance on "The View", video below.
It seems to me that when one is scheduled for an appearance on a major daytime television show that it should be simple self-control to avoid showing up drunk as a skunk. But that's just me.
And I frankly don't care what DeVito thinks about the President because, go with me here, since when am I going to take political lessons from a small man who can't even keep from getting drunk for a TV appearance?
It was DeVito's comments about his time in the Lincoln bedroom that caught my ear. For it's been said that a drunken man's words are a sober man's thoughts.
Indeed Devito and his wife, Rhea, were guests of Bill and Hillary Clinton during their high time in the White House when the first couple were renting out the use of the room for fundraising. Well I understand DeVito's lack of class right there, as the Clintons are just as classless.
Somewhere in his drunken spiel DeVito made the comment that he and his wife "TRASHED" the Lincoln bedroom. The man giggled like the dickens at this proud announcement.
Which of course makes me love the midget even more for trashing a cherished historic room in my taxpayer-paid White House, an act as classless as showing up drunk for a scheduled TV appearance.
DeVito's drinking buddy, George Clooney, had to show up on the "Today" show to defend his drunken, classless friend.
DeVito - who was promoting his new comedy, "Deck the Halls" - slurred his speech and used some bad language when joking about President Bush, among other gaffes, during his appearance on "The View."
What's worse than being homeless and high on crack-cocaine?
Being homeless, high on crack-cocaine and stuck in the jaws of a hungry alligator.
A 45-year-old man was hospitalized after four sheriff's deputies rescued him from the jaws of a nearly 12-foot alligator Wednesday, while he was naked and high on crack cocaine.
Kudos to four Polk County, Florida deputies for rescuing this poor fellow, even though they couldn't use their guns to effect the rescue!
No More Print Edition of TVGuide
Yes the little book that was once displayed proudly on coffee tables across the land...is no more.
TV Guide is now an electronic only "magazine".
We remember it well. Save your old print TV Guides, folks. They could be valuable someday.

Britney's Joke on All of Us
Well hell, we'll even put one of Britney's crotch shots here on this humble Blog, such is my desire to help this desperate child that she not be lost in the celebrity huddle.
So why is Britney flashing her nether regions to all the world? Because, go with me here, she gave her impromptu striptease THREE times in one week. Look at that picture above. A young girl of eight years would know not to climb in a car like that yet Britney, with the cameras flashing, nonchalantly spreads her legs wide and goodness she’s not wearing any underwear!
It’s all about attention, folks. ATTENTION, the money-making machine for the celebrities of our day. And Britney, what with the bad press she’s had for driving with her baby in her arms and her marital problems, desperately needs ATTENTION because without the poor dear might turn into a normal schlub like us idiots out here in la-la land.
So she flashes her vulva all over the place and hey, she gets some ATTENTION.
So how long do us schlubs allow our culture to be devoured by these attention-seeking critters of Hollywood? Because flashing one’s privates USED TO BE a crime of sorts. How is Britney any different than the guy in the trench coat flashing the children in the school yard?
And yet Britney’s ploy for attention is very, very clever. I am sure she consulted with that attention-getter extraordinaire, Paris Hilton. My goodness, what on earth does Paris Hilton have going for her that she gets all that attention? I’d say pretty much nothing and yet Paris Hilton knows how to bring out the cameras.
The old maxim is that even BAD attention is better than NO attention.
Well what the hell can us schlubs do about bogus celebrities flashing their private parts, especially the female bogus celebrities? Should we be amused as our male colleagues ogle the show? Should we smile at this form of public degradation and marvel at how low we can go?
Most important, how about our daughters? Don’t tell me that young females across the fruited plains won’t get it into their heads that exposing their private parts is a neat thing, damn even Britney Spears does it!
Impressionable young females stick their fingers down their throats in order to vomit the life-giving food they’ve just eaten that they may be thin like their celebrity heroines. They copy their clothing styles and hey, I remember a time when male singers NEVER grabbed their crotch while singing and now it’s a matter of routine.
No I’m not espousing that congress pass a law against showing one’s vulva in a public place. The BEST way to rail against these self-important celebrities that so unfortunately impress our vulnerable children is to NOT give them what they’re trying to get: ATTENTION.
So I say, hey Britney, we’re amused at your ploy for attention but know now that even the males who enjoy your little show would never want their daughters or wives to behave like that. For now we’re going to smile with a bit of pity at your desperation and muse on your lack of morals. Goodness, doesn’t Britney have a couple of kids? Kids that may someday see these flashing pictures of their mother and let’s hope that by that time it’s still not okay to run around naked in public.
After our smiles of amusement and dinner table commentary on this new vulva-flashing trend, let us all just ignore Britney. Thus I will commemorate poor, pathetic Britney and sigh with joy that my ordinary everyday schlub kind of life will never force me to debase myself like that.
After this, we’ll never mention Britney again. At least on this Blog written by this humble Blogger, with a granddaughter who I hope to teach some manners on how to act in public.
Even Dogs Look Ugly Before the Makeover
In honor of dogs across the nation who mourn their inability to jaunt merrily around the vaunted dog show rings for want of a pedigree and a long name.
Like your human female owners, know that they too aren't beautiful all of the time.
