Megan Fox is not Happy About Becoming Irrelevant
Word out of the Megan Fox camp is that the sultry, sort of young star does not like that her Transformers 3 replacement, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, is becoming the new "it girl" of the summer. According to the Sun Times, "a source in Fox's camp whispers, 'Megan talks about Rosie all the time -- bitching about how "that Victoria's Secret slut" is getting so much attention.''' The crew of the film has a slightly differing view. "As for the Transformers team, crew members say they're thrilled Rosie replaced Megan in the new movie. While words like ''diva'' (and worse) were used to describe their experiences with Fox, crew types called Huntington-Whiteley ''a real doll,'' ''a sweetie,'' and ''a joy to work with.''

Canadian Man Calls 9-1-1 in Failed Effort to Get the Winnipeg Jets Back
Contrary to popular belief, hockey-related grievances do not warrant 9-1-1 phone calls in Canada. A Winnipeg man learned this lesson the hard way when he called local authorities (reportedly intoxicated) and demanded something be done to get the Jets - who left nearly 15-years-ago - back in town. The gentleman now faces various charges and must now focus his attention on Blue Bomber-related issues. [Winnipeg Free Press]
Malaysia Emerges as Pro-Soccer, Anti-Devil
An Islamic group in Malaysia has helped ban Manchester United soccer jerseys throughout the country because of the devil in the team's logo. The banishment is a small victory for God but yet another setback for devil sports. Earlier this week, the New Jersey Devils had their contract of Ilya Kovalchuk rejected by the league (possibly for Satanism) and now their soccer bretheren are suffering massive discrimination. If the Angels win the World Series, Satan may have to rethink his free agency plans. [Digital Spy]
Chelsea Clinton Throws Millions on 50-50 Bet
Go ahead and walk up to a roulette table and put everything you have on black. Or, propose to your girlfriend. Either way there's a 50-50 chance things are going to end the way you like. The only difference is, when the former first daughter of the United States plans to do it, she's putting a few more sheckels on the line than the average bride. According to ABC News "While nobody but the Clintons knows the exact price, it's shaping up to be a costly affair: the total price tag could easily reach $2 million." [ABC News]
The 7 Types of High School P.E. Teachers
Those who can't do, teach. And those who can't teach, teach gym. And those who can't teach gym are probably the folks that ended up on this funny list from the carbon blobs over at CollegeHumor. Seriously, from "Retired Army Officer" to "Overbearing Lesbian," pretty much every entry on this one is spot on. Which one did you have? [CollegeHumor]
