This just made me crack up:
Right after jury selection began last week, one man got up and left, announcing, “I’m on morphine and I’m higher than a kite.”
It just gets better from there..
Bonus goofy news item of the week: Paris Hilton’s Blackberry was hacked. Quoth the source for this bombshell:
“It’s one thing to have people looking at your sex tapes, but having people reading your personal e-mails is a real invasion of privacy.”
I won’t even try to make a joke here. Yours will be just as good as mine. (Come to think of it, go ahead and leave them in the comments. This could be fun.)
Update: Mike Masnick tried posting the following comment but was thwarted by MT Blacklist. So here’s Mike’s comment in its entirety:
How geeky am I? Geeky enough to know that (a) Paris Hilton shills for the T-Mobile Sidekick, and not the Blackberry. In fact, she’s said that “the Sidekick is way better than the Blackberry.” and (b) the reason this source knows is because it was written about everywhere last week, starting with Security Focus and eventually ending up plenty of other places. So… news to MSNBC: it’s not quite celebrity gossip any more.
