Megan Fox is Engaged Again

Megan Fox is getting married, but she doesn’t have the ring to prove it because she lost it. While vacationing Hawaii Fox’s longtime boyfriend Brian Austin Green asked the sexpot actress for her hand in marriage. This is the second time he has proposed to the actress. According to sources who witnessed the engagement, Fox was so excited she dropped and lost the 2-carat diamond engagement ring in the sand. A source told Us Weekly magazine, “I saw her jumping up and down. Later, I saw a half dozen staff sifting through the sand.” The search was unsuccessful and the two are set to go ring shopping once again. [Us Magazine]

Miley Cyrus has fired back at Perez Hilton for posting an extremely racy photo of the 17-year-old getting out of a car. During an interview with radio cheeseball Ryan Seacrest to promote her upcoming album Can't Be Tamed, Miley stated: "That's like, some idiot being an idiot -- that's not me, you know what I'm saying?” Perez Hilton has since downplayed the controversy in a video post on his website, saying, "Do you think Miley is that stupid to be out in public without panties? Do you think I am stupid enough to post a photo of Miley if she is not wearing any underwear down there?" Yes, we do, Perez. [WWTDD]

Switzerland Neutrally Kicks the Crap out of Spain

After being told to leave their adorable little knives at home, the Swiss soccer team grabbed some chocolate and traveled to South Africa to take on the mighty Spanish team in what most critics assumed would be a horrible World Cup blowout. Oddly enough, the critics were wrong. The mighty (but not too mighty) Swiss pulled the biggest upset of the young tournament by defeating Spain 1-0 in the most exciting 1-0 game in recent memory. Finally, the path has been set for a North Korea-Switzerland World Cup final. [Soccer Net]

Student Throws Puppy at Hell's Angels, Escapes On Bulldozer

You can't make this stuff up, folks! A 26-year-old student observing a Hell's Angels rally in Germany dropped his pants, then threw a puppy at the bikers. He then attempted to escape to Munich on a stolen bulldozer. His plan didn't work. Because he chose a bulldozer to escape in, his getaway wasn't exactly fast, and it caused a three-mile backup. When the puppy-thrower determined he'd made a bad choice, he hopped off and fled to his home on foot, where police apprehended him. [Telegraph]

iPhone 4 Delayed Until July 14th

The iPhone 4 pre-order disaster continues, now with a new delay after AT&T suspended all sales for the device. The iPhone 4 arrival was delayed to July 2 for many pre-orders already. Now there's a new date: July 14. Yesterday, many customers were promised iPhone 4 units for launch date. Later, those customers received letters saying that the date was being pushed back for them, presumably following the realization that they couldn't cope up with orders. Now we are receiving reports on Apple Store iPhone 4 June 24 pick-up orders being canceled via email. Looks like a pretty popular device - good thing AT&T's network is up to the job, right?
