Joker Actors Can’t Pee!

Joker” sequel production bosses are under fire after allegedly denying extras access to the bathroom while on set, among other issues.  Sources told TMZ that extras for “Joker: Folie à Deux” had been forced to work non-stop for two hours sans bathroom or water breaks during production at Warner Bros. Studios in Burbank. Most of these lavatory problems purportedly arose while the background actors were waiting for cameras to be set up — a process that can take up to an hour.  However, extras said they were terrified to ask pee-mission after seeing their colleagues get “berated” for requesting a bathroom break. One extra reportedly had to go “terribly,” only to be forced to plead “their case” to the assistant director as to why it was an emergency.  When they returned with a cup of water, the A.D. reportedly told them: “Why are you drinking more water? So you have to go pee again?”  Meanwhile, another A.D. was overheard scoffing that they’d never “had to go to the bathroom this much.”  “What do they even do in there?” they’d said, according to sources. “Cause they definitely aren’t using them.”  Needless to say, the aggrieved actors couldn’t hold things in for long. The Screen Actors Guild (SAG) has since received an official complaint about break time violations and has reportedly investigated and spoken to production about the alleged potty prohibition, TMZ reported.
********When their eyes turn yellow, it’s time for a break!!!
****Tip: don’t drink coffee!! The caffeine makes you pee!!!

Rihanna’s Interpreter Goes Viral

Rihanna took the field for the Super Bowl LVII halftime show, but another performer standing nearby gained widespread attention as well – sign language interpreter Justina Miles. Fans were wowed by Miles’ energetic interpretation of Rihanna’s lyrics into American Sign language, and she quickly went viral online.  Miles, who is hard of hearing, has gone viral on TikTok for interpreting other popular songs into ASL. Originally from Philadelphia, she was valedictorian at Model Secondary School for the Deaf in Washington D.C. and now studies nursing at Bowie State University, a HBCU in Maryland, according to the National Association of the Deaf.  Miles is no stranger to doing ASL interpretations during live performances and has performed at various concerts. She not only performed during the halftime show at the Super Bowl, but she also performed during “Lift Every Voice and Sing,” also known as the Black National Anthem, performed by Sheryl Lee Ralph during the pregame.
*******We have to back and look: how did she sign “Bitch Better Have My Money???”
****In the last couple of years, we’ve seen some weird-ass sign language interpreters!! Just sayin’!!

Ben and JLo Finally Buy A House

Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck are reportedly in escrow on a giant mansion in the Los Angeles area after trying to find a place to buy for almost two years. According to TMZ, their new home is in the Pacific Palisades, and was listed for $34,500,000. It has 7 bedrooms and 13 bathrooms, comes with an acre of land, is built in a “Hamptons style,” and also has a screening room, a wine cellar, and a health spa. Meanwhile, J.Lo just listed her Bel-Air home for $42,500,000 (she bought it for $28 million back in 2016), so she’s actually going to make money on her and Ben’s move.  Ben and Jen’s new house comes amid tons of headlines about them following a very buzzy appearance at the Grammys, where Ben looked pretty miserable *and* they had a seemingly tense conversation that was caught on camera.
******It’s big enough so that they don’t have to see each other for days if they don’t want to!!
*******Ben’s having a casino installed so he can drink and gamble whenever he wants!!
******If you’re wondering what they payments are on $34.5 million… you can’t afford it!!

Prince Harry May Attend Coronation

The royal family “fully expects” Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to attend King Charles’ coronation, the Mail on Sunday reports—even if some of the family are “spitting feathers” about the revelations and allegations contained in Harry’s memoir Spare.  A friend told the Mail: “Members of the family have told me that both Harry and Meghan will definitely come. They fully expect that. And they should realize that there is only one subject that many members of the royal family will be willing to discuss… and that’s the weather.”  The royals will not trust telling Harry anything more substantial, given he has dished on so many private conversations and incidents. He’s also made clear he has enough material for a second volume. Consequence: a general atmosphere of “loose-ships-sink-ships” if the Montecito couple attend.  A friend told the paper: “Harry revealed details of private conversations, so everyone is on edge. You ask about the Sussexes and everyone immediately changes the subject. They are spitting feathers but not minded to provide any fuel for the fire.”  If Harry and Meghan do show up, as non-working members of the royal family they won’t have any official role in the ceremony, or appear on the Buckingham Palace balcony, the paper says.
*****Harry will be there, making notes on all the injustices and micro-aggressions he’s suffering!!!
*******Our family is screwed up, too.. but nobody wants to know about that!!!
*******Harry and Meghan will be invited to sleep in the royal stables, along with Camilla!!!

Blake Lively Welcomes Baby Number 4

Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds seemingly welcomed their fourth child together prior to Super Bowl LVII.   “Puppy Bowl Sunday 2023 been busy,” the Shallows star, 35, captioned several photos via Instagram on Sunday, February 12. The first snap showed her with no baby bump as she posed with her husband and his mom, Tammy Reynolds.  Lively’s Betty Buzz brand debuted a new commercial during the Puppy Bowl earlier on Sunday.  She revealed that she and Ryan were expecting baby No. 4 at the 10th annual Forbes Power Women’s Summit in September 2022.  A few days after the announcement, a source exclusively shared with Us Weekly that Lively was happy that she finally got to share the news of her pregnancy.  “Blake is relieved the secret is out. She held it in until she couldn’t anymore!” the insider explained.
********That’s what usually happens with babies!!
*******Why did Ryan wants a fourth child?? Hey.. you’re married to Blake Lively!! Why waste it??
*******Her news kinda got buried by Rihanna, though!!

Pete Pans Kim’s Sex Skills-(National Enquirer)

Loose-lipped Pete Davidson has finally got his mojo back as he cavorts with 26-year-old actress Chase Sui Wonders-while trashing Kim Kardashian as a lousy lover and uptight control freak!  The notorious skirt chaser, 29, had a nine-month fling with the bubble-butted mom of four, 42, until he pulled the plug last August. Sources say the not so gentlemanly jokester’s confiding, “Kim was lazy and one-dimensional in the sack-nowhere near his standards-and he wouldn’t touch her again with a ten-foot pole!”



Florida Man Robbery Spree

A Florida man was indicted with six federal robbery charges last week after he was accused of robbing six stores in a single week, according to the U.S. Department of Justice.  A release from the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Florida said a federal grand jury indicted Keshawn Jarmarlin Robinson, 21, of Tallahassee Thursday for six counts of Hobbs Act Robbery, six counts of brandishing a firearm during the commission of a crime of violence, and one count of being a felon in possession of a firearm.  Authorities said Robinson allegedly robbed a Subway, a Dollar General, a tobacco shop, an Advanced Auto Parts store, a Firehouse Subs restaurant, and the Lemon Pepper restaurant. All of these robberies happened in the same week of November, with the final three in about a single day.  According to the release, the stores were all in Tallahassee, and Robinson was accused of using a gun to commit the crimes. The 21-year-old was already a convicted felon and was not permitted to have a gun in the first place.
********See? Gun control works!!!
****Robbing six stores in the same town in the same week?? Poor planning??
*****Only stupid criminals get caught!!!

Missing Dog Rings Doorbell

A dog who went missing from her new Texas home was found two days later after walking 10 miles to her former shelter and ringing the doorbell.  The Animal Rescue League of El Paso said a recently-adopted dog named Bailey went missing from her new home in late January.  Bailey turned up two days later when she found her way back to the Animal Rescue League, about 10 miles from her new home, in the middle of the night.  “I’ll be darn, at 1:42 in the morning she’s ringing the doorbell like, ‘I’m home,'” shelter founder Loretta Hyde told USA Today.  Shelter staff received an alert from the facility’s Ring doorbell and checked the camera to see Bailey waiting to be let inside.  Hyde said staff rushed to the shelter and brought Bailey inside. See the video HERE.

Ballet Dancer Smears Feces On Critic

A German newspaper critic had animal feces smeared on her face by a ballet director in the city of Hannover after he apparently took offense at a review she wrote.  The Hannover state opera house apologized for the incident and said Monday that it was suspending ballet director Marco Goecke with immediate effect.  Reports say a furious Goecke approached its dance critic, Wiebke Huester, during the interval of a premiere at Hannover’s opera house on Saturday and asked what she was doing there. It said that the two didn’t know each other personally.  The newspaper said that Goecke, who apparently felt provoked by a recent review she wrote of a production he staged in the Dutch seat of government, The Hague, threatened to ban her from the ballet and accused her of being responsible for people canceling season tickets in Hannover.  He then pulled out a paper bag with animal feces and smeared her face with the contents before making his way off through a packed theater foyer, the newspaper said. Huester identified the substance as dog feces and said she had filed a criminal complaint, German news reported.
********Smearing dog sh*t on people you don’t like is only allowed on Twitter!!









America’s oddest laws include rules against dressing as nuns, eating frogs and more


Alabama: Don’t dress as a member of the clergy (unless you are one)

A criminal code in Alabama states that no person shall pretend to be a minister of religion or any other member of the clergy (nun, priest, rabbi).   If the law is broken, the person is guilty of a misdemeanor.   The punishment, according to Alabama code Title 13A, is “a fine not exceeding $500.00 or confinement in the county jail for not more than one year, or by both such fine and imprisonment.”

Alaska: Do not operate motorcycles or loud power tools at night

In Fairbanks, Alaska, it’s illegal to operate or use loud instruments between 11 p.m. and 7 a.m., according to the city’s code of ordinances Chapter 46, Article II, Sec. 46-42.   This includes “a pile driver, pneumatic hammer, bulldozer, road grader, loader, power shovel, derrick, backhoe, power saw, manual hammer, motorcycle, snow machine or other instrument, appliance or vehicle which generates loud sounds or noise, after having been informed by another that such operation or use is disturbing the peace and privacy of others,” the city’s code on Offenses Against Public Peace and Order states.

Arizona: You’d better not interfere with a claw machine or ‘crane game’

In Arizona, it is illegal to mess with a crane game, according to Title 13, Chapter 33.  “No person shall alter the game so the claw is unable to grab prizes, display prizes in a way where the claw is unable to grab those prizes, use money as prizes or award prizes in the game which are redeemable for cash or currency,” the law states.  It’s also against the law to misrepresent the value of prizes that a person may win in a crane game. Breaking this law is a class 1 misdemeanor.

Arkansas: Forget about beeping a horn after 9 p.m. at sandwich shops 

In Arkansas, “no person shall sound the horn on a vehicle at any place where cold drinks or sandwiches are served after 9:00 p.m.,” according to Little Rock’s code of ordinances Chapter 18, Sec. 18-54.  In 2020, Reuters also reported on Arkansas Title 1 — which addresses the pronunciation of the state name.   General Provisions Chapter 4 on “State Symbols, Motto, Etc.” states that Arkansas “should be pronounced in three (3) syllables, with the final “s” silent, the “a” in each syllable with the Italian sound, and the accent on the first and last syllables.”  “The pronunciation with the accent on the second syllable with the sound of ‘a’ in ‘man’ and the sounding of the terminal ‘s’ is an innovation to be discouraged,” Reuters said on its FindLaw page.

California: You can’t eat frogs that die in frog-jumping competitions

California’s Fish and Game Code, Article 2, Frog-Jumping Contests (6880-6885), states that any number of live frogs are allowed to be used in frog-jumping contests.  Should one of the poor creatures pass on or be killed during the competition, however, “it must be destroyed as soon as possible, and may not be eaten or otherwise used for any purpose,” the law says.

Colorado: You may not use upholstered furniture outside

In the Centennial State, no person shall keep, use or store upholstered furniture outside unless that furniture is specifically manufactured for outdoor use. This may include upholstered chairs, upholstered couches and mattresses in the front, side or backyard.  If the furniture is temporarily placed in an outside location in the hope of selling it at a yard sale, however, that’s apparently a different story, according to Colorado’s “General Offenses” under Title 5, Chapter 4, 5-4-16.

Connecticut: Don’t sell ‘silly string’ to a minor

In the city of Meriden, Connecticut, no person shall sell or offer silly string “or like products” to a minor unless that minor is accompanied by a parent or legal guardian, Chapter 175, 175-2 states.  If placed for sale, these products must be in a locked case or behind a store counter.  It’s also reportedly illegal to use “silly string” or like products on Halloween in Hollywood, California (Los Angeles, Article 6, Public Hazards SEC. 56.02.).

Delaware: You can’t whisper or use profane language in a place of worship 

Under Rehoboth Beach, Delaware’s Article IV Offenses Against Public Peace and Safety 198-23, no person may disrupt religious worship “by noise, talking or whispering, or by rude or indecent behavior, or by profane language within their place of worship, or within 300 feet of the place of worship,” the law states.  These rules also exist in reference to the disturbance of any lawful assembly and/or gathering of people in a public place.

Florida: Please don’t feed the alligators

Under Florida Code Title XXVIII Chapter 372 under “Wildlife,” the law states that no person shall “intentionally feed, or entice with feed, any wild American alligator.”  This includes American crocodiles, the code states. People who are allowed to feed the reptiles must be licensed and or do so for “educational, scientific, commercial or recreational purposes” and only while the creatures are in protected captivity.  Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission personnel, for example, can feed gators.

Georgia: You can’t have chickens crossing the road

Section 8-1 of Georgia law has rules against “domestic fowl running at large.” “It shall be unlawful for any person owning or controlling chickens, ducks, geese or any other domestic fowl to allow the same to run at large upon the streets or alleys of the city or to be upon the premises of any other person, without the consent of such other person,” the law states.

Hawaii: You can’t post a billboard except in special cases 

The Aloha State forbids outdoor advertising unless under special circumstances (Vol10, Chapter 0436-0474, 445-112).  For example, Hawaii officials apparently will allow billboards only on the property that is actually selling the item or service that’s being advertised.

Idaho: You can’t carry a red or white cane unless you’re fully or partially blind 

Idaho’s Title 18 in Crime and Punishments, in Chapter 58 under Public Health and Safety, states that no persons unless completely blind or partially blind may use a red or white cane.  Only people who are blind may carry a cane in this color, according to the law. In addition, no person who isn’t blind or partially blind is allowed to carry a cane that’s white tipped with red.

Illinois: You cannot dye a baby chick

It is against the law in the Prairie State to sell, offer to sell, trade or display “living baby chicks, ducklings, goslings, or other fowl or rabbits which have been dyed, colored or otherwise treated so as to impart to them an artificial color,” according to Chapter 7-12, Animal care and control.  The law also states that the animals should not be given away as prizes.

Indiana: Don’t even think about catching a fish with your bare hands

Fishing is allowed in the Hoosier State — but the state prohibits people from taking fish from the water using “the hands alone.”  Title 14, Article 22 under Chapter 9 also states that a net, dynamite or explosives may not be used, among other methods.

Iowa: Don’t pass off fake butter as real butter

In reference to imitation butter under Title V, Chapter 192, section 143, the product can only be sold under the name of “oleomargarine.” Imitation butter also cannot be advertised under the words butter, creamery or dairy — among other terms.

Kansas: Don’t use playgrounds if you’re over age 14 

In Wichita, Kansas, no person over the age of 14 — with some exceptions — may use playgrounds that are designed for children, “which deprives or prevents the use of such equipment by children” (Sec. 9.03.430).  This law does not apply to parents and guardians who are participating with their children, by the way.

Kentucky: Do not use reptiles in religious services

In Kentucky under Chapter 208, Section 1, it’s against the law for a person to “display, handle or use” any breed of reptile in connection with religious services.  This law, according to Kentucky Revised Statutes, has been in effect since 1942 — and those who break is will be fined anywhere from $50 to $100.

Louisiana: You may not have reptiles at or near Mardi Gras

Leave your snake at home.  Section 34-21 of the New Orleans Code of Ordinances states that no reptiles are allowed within 200 yards of a Mardi Gras parade and not less than two hours before the published start time of a parade.  The animals also must not be within 200 yards of the end of a parade “for not less than one hour after the actual end of the parade,” the law says.

Maine: You can’t gamble at the airport

In Biddeford, Maine, under Section 14-2, it’s illegal to engage in gambling at the airport. It’s also against the law to be intoxicated “or commit any act constituting a nuisance on the airport.”

Maryland: Forget about ‘stench bombs’

In Baltimore, Maryland, it’s illegal to manufacture, sell or trade a “stench bomb,” which is defined as “any liquid, gaseous, or solid substance or matter of any kind which is intended to be thrown, dropped, poured, deposited, or discharged for the purpose of producing a noxious, nauseating, sickening, irritating, or offensive odor.”  Anyone who violates this law is guilty of a misdemeanor and will be subjected to a fine, according to Article 19, 59-32.

Massachusetts: Be careful how you play the national anthem 

In Massachusetts, whoever sings or plays “The Star-Spangled Banner” on an instrument in any public space “other than as a whole and separate composition or number” will be fined. There are other stipulations to this rule as well (Section 264:9).  The fine must not be more $100.

Michigan: There’s no drunkenness on trains 

Michigan law, Act 68 of 1913 (436.201, Section 1), states that no person shall ride any railway train if inebriated.

Minnesota: You can’t be charged with drunkenness 

In Minnesota, it is noted in Section 340A.902 that no person “may be charged with or convicted of the offense of drunkenness or public drunkenness.”  If you swear in Mississippi, you can be fined up to $100. This law, in Title 97, Chapter 29, also includes public drunkenness.

Missouri: You can’t sell cars on Sundays

Just as in New Jersey and apparently in some other U.S. states, it is illegal to sell a vehicle on Sunday, according to Missouri’s code 578.120.  The law states that “no dealer, distributor or manufacturer” who isn’t licensed “may keep open, operate, or assist in keeping open or operating any established place of business for the purpose of buying, selling, bartering or exchanging, or offering for sale, any motor vehicle, whether new or used, on Sunday.”
