Like a Maniacal Jacko in the Box

So I keep singing "We Are The World" in my head, except my version is only the line "There are (pause) people dying" over and over again. Not kidding about this. (Update: It has taken me 4.5 hours to realize that that line is from "Heal the World", from flu-stricken-molester fame.)

A couple of hot button issues I need to get off my chest:

First, a site brought to my attention by Screenhead yesterday, "Jew of the Day", which, as I'm probably the only Jewish blogger out there, I feel forced to bring up and comment on. Jew of the Day, or JOTD, is a good idea in theory: a website that brings up a notable Jew with a little biography every day for your own enlightenment. For example, who knew that I share the same bloodline with Monty Hall from Let's Make a Deal and Paula Abdul from a soon to be determined drug rehabilitation center (I was sure she was Arabic).

But a couple of things came to my attention. For starters, whoever edits this site should pay more attention to who they group together in any given week. For example:

Now maybe it's just me, but don't you think they could've given more than just a three day buffer between Anne Frank, who for many is the face of the Holocaust atrocities, and Lisa Bonet, star of the soft-core pornography "Angel Heart"? I mean, wouldn't Barbara Streisand be a better choice?

Wait, that's Barbra Streisand?.....

I shit you not, they use a picture of a female impersonator for Barbra. Maybe this site is more legitimate than I give it credit for.

Moving on, check out this video of a woman falling off a small ledge while crushing grapes, and injuring herself. I'm normally not into stuff like this, but it's worth a look. (thanks to Jon.) Also, it took me hours to download, but if you're patient, try it out.

Next up on my rant this Tuesday, as always MSN.com brings us the hardhitting news.

HOW MUCH FAT ARE IN STRAWBERRIES. Someone get Morgan Spurlock on this immediately.

Nightmares haven't been living up to your usual suicide-inducing standards? Perhaps this "German clown", PantomimeNEMO, will inspire you.

This character's name is called "The Karnevalist", which reminds me of how the circus near my house used to have a "ride" called "Das Fun Haus", which sounded to me like the kinds of lures Mengele would use on his subjects.

Full circle? Your welcome.

Finally, a major R.I.P. shout-out to Jacques Villeret, beloved French film actor and star of one of the funniest movies ever, The Dinner Game, who passed away suddenly on January 28. If you haven't seen this movie, do this blog a favor, sign up for Blockbuster Online (wink wink) and rent it. Shameless plug, yes, but an honest tribute nonetheless.
