Donald Trump Gets “Lukewarm” Youtube Reception

Donald Trump is no Charlie Sheen when it comes to rallying sheer numbers of folks on the internet.

Sheen’s internet assault garnered him over a million Twitter followers in a single day but Trump is struggling with his planned domination of the web, gaining only meager numbers of viewers.

Trump’s Youtube video series, “From the Desk of Trump” is basically a flop, gaining only a few thousand views per video. Part of Trump’s woes gaining supporters on Youtube may be the fact that he “disables commenting” on his videos. Disabling comments is generally viewed as “cowardly” on the popular video sharing website. Not allowing Youtubers to express themselves by commenting on videos equals a coffin nail when it comes to views.

Trump’s wake up call on Youtube is a social phenomenon which demonstrates that “you can lead a Youtuber to a video, but you can’t make them watch.”

David Ferrer, the Spanish tennis star was totally off his game and losing badly in his quarterfinal match against American Mardy Fish.

Durning one of the last points Ferrer looked in the direction of a baby who was crying in the stand and whacked the ball toward the infant.

The ball did not hit the child but Ferrer did receive a nice round of boos from the audience and equal admonishment from the announcers.

Busted! Women Dissolved Drugs Into Coloring Books for Inmates

Cinderella on drugs

Two women have been caught for dissolving narcotics into a paste and then painting the drugs onto pages of Snow White and Cinderella themed coloring books, that were mailed to a trio of inmates in New Jersey.

This coloring book scandal had been going on for months, until officials at the Cape May County Correctional Center got a tip that the drug Suboxone was being sent into the lockup. Suboxone, which is orange in color, is usually prescribed to treat opiate addiction. (See the orangey substance on the Cinderella picture?)

When a mail room employee at the jail got word that Suboxone was being smuggled in, he then kept on the lookout for any mail with an orange tint. He soon found these suspicious coloring book pages containing an “orangey substance” that looked like “water color paint a child would use on an art project.” The coloring books were deceivingly sweet and innocent with childrens’ notes written on them, like- “To Daddy” and “Love Emma Lee”. The mail room employee then reported his findings, and sure enough, these once sweet and innocent coloring books from ‘inmates children’, all turned out to be sour and tainted, drug-coated deceptions.

Video: Britney Spears’ New ‘Manly’ Voice Raises Questions

When did Britney Spears’ voice become so deep? Every single interview that I’ve seen of Britney since she was 16, her voice has always been very chirpy, cheery, upbeat and just very ‘girly’ in general.

After watching this new MTV trailer (below) promoting Britney’s new album, I am just stunned to hear this ‘new’ voice of Britney’s. It’s not girly and it’s not British- it’s manly.

Another star who has changed her voice, is Paris Hilton. For years, Hilton has always spoken in a very girly tone in interviews, until late 2010, when she released that documentary about herself, and her voice was suddenly manly too! What’s up with that?!

ghettobikinigirl 150x200 Video: Girl in Bikini Attacks Burger King Staff!

This Panama City Beach Burger King on Front Beach Road, was trashed after Kimesia Smith from Montgomery Alabama, came into town not for Spring Break, but just to have a ‘nice’ day at the beach and also grab a burger for lunch.

According to the report, Smith was angry that her order was messed up at the drive-thru, so she parked her car, went inside BK, argued with the management, then threw punches and objects at the management.

Other people at the establishment then start joining in with Smith, and they throw around objects and napkins! The place was trashed, then Smith was arrested.

Kids Busted For Selling Girl Scout Cookies on Front Lawn

Screen shot 2011 03 24 at 7.55.43 PM Kids Busted For Selling Girl Scout Cookies on Front Lawn

HAZELWOOD, Mo.- Citing the home occupancy code, authorities have shut down some kids that were selling Girl Scout Cookies from the lawn in front of their home.

“Based on this complaint, the city of Hazelwood had to take action,” said a city spokesman. Rubbing in the fact that it is against city code to sell products from home.

Turns out some grinch didn’t like the fact the kids were staying out of trouble by being enterprising and turned them into the fuzz.

Then when all seemed lost, a local Reverend swooped in to save the day by buying all the remaining cookies.

Cookie Case Closed.

Charlie Sheen Requests ‘Public Trial’ for Warner Bros. Suit

When Charlie Sheen recently filed papers to sue Warner Bros. for $100 Mil, he also requested to get a ‘public trial’, not a ‘closed-door arbitration’.

Sheen said that the judge who will be overseeing the suit, is ‘tight’ with WB and has done business with them in the past. Sheen wants to make sure no naughty tricks are done behind closed doors to him!

Sheen is a smart cookie for pushing for the public trial! I think he’s right… and he likes the attention too.
