As you may already know, when Shaquille O’Neil isn’t intimidating people in a basketball uniform, he’s doing so in a police uniform. In the offseason, the star of such film as Kazaam is a reserve officer with the Miami Beach Police Department. Details today are emerging about Shaq’s involvement in a botched child pornography sting last month. (Please stop reading for a moment and let that idea absorb.) On September 23, Shaq & Co. raided a man’s house, sending in a “‘paramilitary search-and-seizure team’ that took computers, cameras, DVDs and VHS tapes.” Turns out, an IP address snafu meant that they raided the wrong guy! And while Shaq denied any involvement, the current face of Miami’s Anti-Child Pornography and Child Predator Campaign finally fessed up to being in the man’s house at the time. (Neighbors saw his head sticking out of a chimney.)
Which gave us an idea for a serious hit show: To Catch a Predator with Shaq. It’s the exact same show as the original Dateline show, except instead of Chris “Whitebread” Hanson, you have Shaq coming out from behind the wall and watch the perps reaction. That, or a bumbling half-hour cop comedy featuring Shaq getting into all kinds of pickles, like a Bronson Pinchot for the new millenium.
This week, Pete Doherty’s uncle “confirmed” that his nephew and Kate Moss were expecting a baby together. He told the Sunday Mirror “â€œI have spoken to Pete twice about the baby and he has confirmed that Kate is pregnant.”
The happy couple was spotted celebrating the good news at Moet & Chandon’s annual fashion tribute in London. Pete smoked his cigarettes and Kate took swigs from the bottle, presumably in an attempt to toughen this kid up in the womb and prepare it for a life of heavy partying and bad parenting.
Actually, with all the horrible stuff Kate normally puts into her body (coke, Pete, etc.), maybe Champagne and second hand smoke is a step in the right direction after all.

As you are by now well aware, Borat… etc etc. opens in a little over a week’s time. November 3 cannot come quickly enough. But to satisfy your pre-release urges, check out this hilarious clip of a vintage Borat visiting Cambridge University, a clip never aired in the U.S.
If that’s not enough, you can also read Entertainment Weekly‘s hilarious interview with the man.
How is Kazakh humor different from American humor?
In Kazakhstan we still find very funny actor Robin Williams. Especial his new movie ‘Womanman Doubtfires’.
What you are about to see is the latest music video clip from Early Edison – the hippest, hottest new band of indie rockers to hit the New York/New Jersey scene since The Strokes started singing about their previous evenings of getting wasted back in ’01. Dripping with raw rock power and dangerous amounts of pure sexual energy, the boys from EE know how to rock the house – and wire it up with the convenience of cable on demand. They’ll even let you “hold their remote control”.

So yeah, I’m not doing any work today. I’m going to watch my favorite episode (“The Injury”), the few that I’ve missed, and every one that guest stars Amy Adams. You do the same. Then in a couple of hours lets meet back up over here and talk about how awesome Creed is. See you then.
