quick takes on some “news” stories.

When I say news, I’m not taking about world news or current affairs. I’m talking about things I find interesting. You know, quirky news.

  • The world’s smallest snake was found in Barbados. Ewwwwwww. It is as wide as a strand of spaghetti and can be up to four inches long. As if I wasn’t afraid of snakes already, now I have to be afraid of snakes that I can’t even see. If I’m ever in Barbados. Oh, and here’s the best. The scientist who discovered it named it Leptotyphlops carlae, after his wife, Carla. Carla is a herpetologist. Hmmm. I’m pretty sure I graduated with a few herpetologists.
  • Jen Moss must be loving life right now. On Saturday, dozens, perhaps hundreds of bike riders rode the streets of St. Louis as naked as they dared. The World Naked Bike Ride (careful if you’re at work, there is nudity on the web site) protests the cost of oil. And let’s face it, it’s an excuse to ride around on your bicycle nakey. According to eyewitnesses, lots of boobs and thongs. Good times. Oh, and to make it even better, the 10 mile ride ended at a bar. GOOD PLANNING!
  • Lindsay Lohan’s leeeeetle seeeeester, Ali Lohan, “accidentally” auditioned for a horror movie directed by a well-known porn director, Peter Davy. HA! Her rep says Ali didn’t know about his past, which includes “Voodoo Lust” and “Dreams in the Forbidden Zone” (RAWR!), and if she did she would not have auditioned. Question: does Ali Lohan book her own auditions? I’m pretty sure her agents aren’t that dumb. And isn’t it strange that she has a reality show right now? My my, that sounds like such a good plot line!

    I am ashamed to admit that I actually saw the episode of the Lohan reality show where Ali auditions for the porn dude. I’m no expert on acting (though I do have a lot of experience with, ahem, “performance studies”), but she was terrible. Truly terrible. But the director apparently didn’t think so, because he made some lady chase after Ali’s car to tell her to come back inside the studio, where the porn director guy was all “You were amazing. Perfect. So much potential. The camera loves you.” I bet he was really thinking “I’m crossing my fingers that your sister’s whore tendencies are genetic.”
