Did You Just Hear Something?

Fortuitous Friday to you all, my little gingersnaps! You know what today is, right? It's iPad3 Delivery Day!!! I've already alerted the kids' Kung Fu sensei that there is a possibility they will miss their classes today depending on when the delivery guy makes an appearance. Cause there's NO WAY I'm leaving the house until he delivers our new iPads. #priorities

In the news, a 3 week old baby bunny in Germany, born without ears, was making his press conference debut when lo and behold, the cameraman stepped back and accidentally crushed him to death. I'm sure the little bun-bun didn't hear that coming. Reason #572 why I'm going to Hell. I make light of accidental bunny deaths when I myself am an avid bunny enthusiast, owner and sometime breeder. You know, I had a one eared bunny once. I named him Uno. No one stepped on him and crushed him to death. Possibly because he still had one ear.

Rare Baby Bunny Killed by Cameraman at Moment of Fame

"The future looked so bright for tiny Til, a baby rabbit born without ears three weeks ago," Der Spiegel reports. For little Til was born in the east German town of Limbach-Oberfrohna, and Germans are a people known for their love of adorable mutants and pathetic baby animals. Like an earless, 8-year-old Lindsay Lohan from the family Leporidae, Til was destined for stardom.

But then tragedy struck. The microtic-anotic cottontail was crushed to death by a cameraman at her very first press conference.

Limbach-Oberfrohna zoo director Uwe Dempewolf confessed to Der Spiegel,

We are all shocked. During the filming, the cameraman took a step back and trod on the bunny. He was immediately dead, he didn't suffer. It was a direct hit. No one could have foreseen this. Everyone here is upset. The cameraman was distraught.

And so the ruthless paparazzi extinguish another life. Farewell, Til. You lived your life like a candle in the east German wind; which is to say, not for very long.

In other news, the daughter of Whitney Houston is now dating the not-quite-legally adopted son of Whitney Houston. About 10 years ago (when Bobbi Kristina and this dude were ages 9, and 12) Whitney brought him into their home as her adopted son. She called him her son. Bobbi and Nick called each other brother and sister. So now that people are shouting "incest" Bobbi is quick to point out that she is NOT committing incest because they are not biologically related. Apparently it doesn't matter that they were RAISED as brother and sister.

Oh Lord... no one share this story with my 6 & 7 year old son & daughter, who are also not biologically related, who regularly insist that one day they will marry. They also play the "Mom & Dad" game with their two pretend children Mazi & Wadi. This is normal, right? Please tell me this is normal.

 Bobbi Kristina is not fazed
Whitney Houston's daughter Bobbi Kristina isn't fazed by her granny's accusations she's committing incest by hooking up with her "adopted" brother -- telling friends, she's gonna do what she wants ... no matter what.

Sources close to BK tell TMZ, the 19-year-old finally 'fessed up to her close buddies ... she and 22-year-old Nick Gordon are dating -- ten years after Whitney unofficially adopted the boy because he was having problems at home.

TMZ broke the story ... Bobbi's grandma Cissy Houston saw the video we posted -- showing Bobbi and Nick holding hands and kissing on a lunch run in Atlanta this week -- and told a close friend, "What [Bobbi and Nick] are doing is incestuous."

But Bobbi couldn't care less -- telling friends ... she doesn't give a damn about what Cissy thinks about her controversial relationship ... and because Nick's not her blood brother, she definitely doesn't consider it incest.

As one source put it -- Bobbi "can't please everyone, so she is going to please herself by doing what she wants to do for once."

As for the maybe engagement ring Bobbi was wearing -- we're told she's been mum on what it means ... but cryptically told friends, she and Nick ARE planning a trip to Vegas in the near future.

Hey, Johnny Depp is in a Tim Burton movie with Helena Bonham Carter and is wearing white face paint! Wait, where have I heard this before? Do you think Tim just thinks of movies to make where he can pair these two? Does Johnny Depp have "must wear white face paint and work with Helena Bonham Carter" in his contract?

Check out the trailer below. I can't really make heads or tails of it. Though I'm digging the Barry White music. What do you think?

Johnny Depp: New 'Dark Shadows' Pic!

Johnny Depp: New 'Dark Shadows' Pic!

Check out this new pic of Johnny Depp as vampire Barnabas Collins in the upcoming movie Dark Shadows!

Here’s the official synopsis for the Tim Burton-directed film: In the year 1752, Joshua and Naomi Collins, with young son Barnabas, set sail from Liverpool, England to start a new life in America. But even an ocean was not enough to escape the mysterious curse that has plagued their family. Two decades pass and Barnabas (Depp) has the world at his feet – or at least the town of Collinsport, Maine.

The master of Collinwood Manor, Barnabas is rich, powerful and an inveterate playboy … until he makes the grave mistake of breaking the heart of Angelique Bouchard (Eva Green). A witch, in every sense of the word, Angelique dooms him to a fate worse than death: turning him into a vampire, and then burying him alive. Two centuries later, Barnabas is inadvertently freed from his tomb and emerges into the very changed world of 1972. He returns to Collinwood Manor to find that his once-grand estate has fallen into ruin.

The film also co-stars Michelle Pfeiffer, Helena Bonham Carter, Jonny Lee Miller, Chloe Moretz, Gulliver McGrath, Jackie Earle Haley, and Bella Heathcote.

Humans can be poisoned by chocolate just like dogs!

Ever wonder why we can eat so much chocolate but dogs can’t? Chocolate poisoning, or theobromine poisoning, is an adverse reaction to the alkaloid theobromine found in chocolate, tea, and even cola. Cacao beans contain around 1.2% theobromine by weight.

It can be safely consumed by humans, however, if we were to eat enough we have an extremely likely chance of being poisoned While dogs are the most common victims of chocolate poisoning, reports of the elderly being sent to the emergency room for eating too much chocolate because their digestive system can’t handle the theobromine anymore are relatively common! Symptoms include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, seizures, internal bleeding, heart attacks and eventually death!
