How Did He See Such a Teeny Tiny Thumb?
Did you know Bono put himself in the position to be murdered by a Canadian serial killer recently? Having clearly not seen enough horror movie thrillers, Bono found himself (and a buddy) in the middle of a downpour while taking a walk around town in Vancouver. Instead of just ducking under one of those orange traffic cones, the U2 singer was rescued when he was able to flag down a motorist. The motorist turned out to be Gilbert Brule, center for the NHL’s Edmonton Oilers who was in town for the Stanley Cup finals (as spectator, not player). For disobeying every warning his mom ever gave him about the perils of picking up hitchhikers (though, to be fair, the hitcher wasn’t exactly a “stranger”), Brule was given a pair of tickets to the U2 show in Edmonton by Bono, which required him to ditch plans to check out the Cup battle and fly back home for the concert. He’s lucky he didn’t pick up Cher.

If Hillary Clinton decides to leave her position as Secretary of State so she can compete on the next season of Dancing with the Stars and Barack Obama needs a fill-in, might we suggest Ms. Patti LaBelle? The prototypical diva’s qualifications? She’s a bad-ass and she doesn’t care who you are — mess with her stuff and she’ll order an attack immediately. A student at West Point recently filed a suit against the singer claiming that LaBelle sent her bodyguards to rough him up after she felt he was standing too close to her luggage, according to Rolling Stone. The student is also a football player for Army and claims he missed the rest of the season due to the attack. Besides her clear abilities as an enforcer, what world leader would question anything our new Secretary of State said if she was sporting one of her trademark avant-garde skyscraper hairdos?
