Barbie – The FBI is warning that Video Girl Barbie, which has a video camera embedded in her necklace, could be used by child pornographers to create illegal material. Rather than recall the toys, the FBI is encouraging parents to get their daughters at least one older brother, who will blow Barbie to bits with firecrackers before video can be taken.

Gibson, Mel – In The Beaver, Mel Gibson plays a depressed man who pieces his life back together by communicating through a ventriloquist dummy shaped like a beaver. In short, his comeback movie will no longer be The Hangover 2, sequel to the most successful R-Rated comedy in history, but The Beaver, in which he plays a guy who can only talk to people by putting his hand up a stuffed beaver’s butt.

Kunis, Mila – After generating buzz for her love scenes with Natalie Portman in Black Swan, Kunis says that similar scenes with Justin Timberlake in Friends with Benefits were awkward: “I mean, the truth is, we got to have very uncomfortable scenes for two weeks. There’s like 150 crew men watching and you see each other’s bits and pieces. The whole thing is just wrong!” Since that statement, a hundred million women have written Kunis offering to take her place if reshoots are needed.

Nelson, Willie – The country legend was recently busted for possessing six ounces of marijuana, but the amount was “knocked down” to four ounces. One wonders if the amount was knocked down in “negotiations” with the arresting officer, or perhaps in transit to the evidence room.
