The Entertation Index: June 4

June 4, 2009

Cohen, Sacha Baron: Again, his oft-hilarious hi-jinksing will result in legal action. First, after Borat, a bunch of morons tried to sue him for portraying them as assholes. Turns out, they were assholes. Now, however, Cohen may be the asshole, as a stunt at a bingo tournament left a woman in a wheelchair. If true, that would make him an asshole. Correct me if I’m wrong, but don’t most bingo tournaments result with many of the participants being in wheelchairs? Because they’re old? Now I’m the asshole.

Hhh!, Ahhh: Beginning this fall the Scream franchise will be resurrected into a trilogy of movies. Many of the old characters will be retained, notably David and Courteney Cox Arquette. So, awesome. I guess.

Hirsch, Emile: Hirsch will play Hamlet. OK.

Remedy, Stinky Home: The Los Angeles Times is reporting that a cut onion will dull the pain and cause swelling to cease after a bee sting. That way, you can smell like a homeless person rather than experience a modicum of pain.

Suck, Crunches: A new report shows that crunches are not only bad for your back, they’re worthless. I could’ve told you that a long time ago. I’ve never done a crunch or sit-up without some bunghole telling me I was doing it wrong. “My back hurts,” I’d whine. “That’s ’cause you’re putting too much stress on your neck,” they’d condescendingly retort. Oh yeah, well Newsweek disagrees, a-hole.
