Hey, just checking in with a few quick thangs tonight:
- The whole Tom Cruise-Katie Holmes thing has been all over the media the last few weeks as their respective summer blockbusters were about to come out. Methinks he's trying too hard. In fact, if you watch his Oprah appearance or read about some of the other stuff he's been doing lately, it makes you wonder if he isn't completely unhinged. Which makes this graphic all the more timely (thanks to Banterist).
- Funny story out of Russia, where New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft along with other U.S. businessmen was meeting Russian President Vladimir Putin. Turns out Kraft was showing off his latest Super Bowl ring, which is ginormous, and handed it to Putin, who promptly pocketed the bling and took off. Initial reports said Kraft, not wanting to start an international incident, didn't say anything at the time but was working through the State Department to get the ring back. After a full day of press, Krafty issued a statement saying the ring was actually a gift to Putin, who apparently is a huge Pats fan. Hey, what the hell, the team gave out a ton of rings to staff, anyway. What's one more?
- This story from New Hampshire may lead officials to change the state motto to "Live Free or Yuck."
