Slogans Can Hurt

Ellen Degeneres is all over the Red Bull class action lawsuit.

You'll recall that the makers of the energy drink settled their case recently, offering a $13 million payout to consumers who may have been duped into believing that Red Bull gives you wings.

On yesterday's Ellen, viewers got to meet a man who believes most slogans, and is suing everyone from Nike to Exxon to Ellen herself.

Check it out.

Your Name is Neil Diamond...

Neil Diamond's kicking off a new concernt tour, and he's started on the talk show circuit.

He popped into The Tonight Show to chat with Jimmy Fallon about his legendary career - he's a member of both the Songwriters Hall of Fame and the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, you know.

But the conversation turned to his name. "Neil Diamond" is his real name, but early on in the business, he thought about changing it.

Listen to the conversation for the full story.

Then play it again, but mute the video, and tell me if this guy isn't looking a little bit like Sean Connery these days.

Breaking Bad Action

A mom in Florida has started a petition to get the Toys 'R' Us chain to take Breaking Bad action figures off their shelves.

The mom doesn't like the message that the figures send, saying that kids mimic what their action figures do.

The Walter White doll, for instance, comes complete with bags of cash and methamphetamine.

The mom admits that she liked the series – even found it riveting – but she wants the figures out of Toys 'R' Us

Bryan Cranston, who played Walter in the series, had an interesting take on the whole thing, with a fun tweet yesterday.

Who Thought This Was a Good Idea?

There's a company that sells giant stuffed plush versions of various microbial organisms - among them, the Ebola virus, which they call "the T. Rex of microbes."

And guess what?

With so much talk about Ebola these days - and by "talk," I mean "panic" - the entire stock of Ebola toys has sold out.

That includes the small Ebola doll ($9.95), the gigantic Ebola doll ($29.95) and the Ebola Petri Dish ($14.95).

Yup, that's exactly what we want our kids playing with these days, isn't it?

The video below was made about three years ago - but check it out anyway.

Kooking with Kardashian?

Kris Jenner - aka Mama Kardashian - showed up on The Today Show yesterday, hawking her new kookbook.

Because when you think of kuisine, your mind instantly goes to "Kardashian," am I right?

In her defense, she says she's been feeding her khildren since she had Kourtney when Kris was just 22. "They give you a baby, you've gotta feed it."

If that doesn't get her some sort of Mom of the Year award - well, it will just be a travesty.

Man on a Leash?

Jada Pinkett Smith showed up to audition for the role of Fish Mooney on Fox's Gotham with a man on a leash.

Her character is a shady club owner in Gotham who has relationships with a lot of underworld characters – and maybe a less than honorable relationship with some of Gotham's finest as well.

Last weekend, she told folks at the PaleyFest that she wanted to show the producers that she understood her character. So instead of talking about Fish Mooney, she decided to show them.

She showed up in a short wig and a long flowing gown with a shirtless man on a leash.

She says she went "method." The dude on the leash went "canine," I guess.

She also has a strong presence on Twitter, keeping in touch with her fans by tweeting.

Something's Amiss in the Sullivan Theater

Bill Mendez, a long-time cue card guy on The Late Show with David Letterman, lost his job recently.

According to the reports, he got into an argument with one of the show's writers over the cue cards. The fight allegedly ended with Mendez grabbing the writer by the front of his shirt and pinning him to a nearby wll.

So that's it - the cue card man has been fired.

If you've got cue card experience and don't mind a short-term position, be sure to send in your application.

Letterman is retiring in April.

Maybe it would be better to apply with Stephen Colbert...

She Ain't Heavy, She Also Ain't My Brother

The head of the Russian Tennis Federation has been fined $25,000 for referring to Venus and Serena Williams as "the Williams brothers."

He's also been suspended for a year after his comments on a talk show on Russian TV.

Funny how the world works.

This guy's got to pay a hefty fine and lose his job for a bit for saying that same things that earn guys like Jimmy Fallon, Conan O'Brien and Jon Stewart millions.

It's Not Shoplifting - It's Scoring an Endorsement!


Last week, Joseph Randle, a running back for the Dallas Cowboys, was arrested for shoplifting at Dallas-area mall.

He allegedly walked off with underwear and cologne. He's facing legal action, and the NFL hit him with a fine of $29,500.

Not to worry. A marketing company in Los Angeles just signed Randel to a contract to help them market underwear.

The company - MeUndies - will pay Sticky Fingers at least enough to cover the fine from the league.

I guess there will be a separate cologne deal to cover the court costs.

Yeah, this is a great example for kids everywhere.
