The episode of The Sopranos with Ben Kingsley dealt with this bullsh*t pretty hilariously. I'm amazed they haven't toned it down at all.

I think the picture of COC's dead mom would turn her back to lesbianism

@Horror - celebs come to rely on the free stuff. They become to feel it's an entitlement to them.

Seriously... Lohan goes to these Hollywood house and beach parties ALL the time just for the free grab-bags (seriously). It's like a part-time job for her.

Blue Waffle... LOL! Someone is paying to register that domain and run that picture (clearly Loslag after a Friday night paying the rent)... that's hysterical.

Technicolor should use that picture as their new logo!

I'll bet Nicolas Cage is hoping his grab bag just has a check in it for $85K!

What's inside the Super Awesome Dope Gift Baskets that Homowood types crave for?

James Cameron's sh*t, and if they act all confused, JC will jump out and say "Avatar sold $2.5 Billion World Wide Bitch, my sh*ts gotta be worth at least $85K....Avatar What"

Afterwards Nic Cage was seen trying to sell JC's sh*t at the nearest Pawn Shop.

LOL! Does anyone else find it funny that the gift basket comes with chocolate dipped bacon yet also 10 free personal training sessions as well. I guess they'll need those workout sessions to get rid of the fat and cholesterol levals from the chocolate dipped bacon! LMAO!

Chocoate dipped bacon? I love chocolate and bacon, but that sounds pretty nasty!
Ranger writes:
on March 7th, 2010 at 3:25:17 AM

Yeah, that would be like pouring chocolate onto Lohan's 'Blue Waffle' before doing down on it.
