HIGHLIGHTS: According to a new survey, BMW drivers are the most likely to have road rage, just ahead of Land Rover drivers. People in blue cars are more likely than people in other color cars to have road rage. And the worst time of the week for road rage is 5:45 P.M. on a Friday.
HIGHLIGHTS: A new list of celebrities and their pre-fame jobs tells us that Sean Connery was a milkman, Kanye West worked at the Gap, Whoopi Goldberg was a phone sex operator and Ellen DeGeneres was an oyster shucker. But they also say Rod Stewart was a grave digger, which isn't true.
HIGHLIGHTS: Yesterday, Taco Bell announced its brand new Doritos Locos Taco flavor. It's called the Fiery Doritos Locos Taco, and it's covered in a spicy red powder with a hint of lime. They go on sale nationwide one week from tomorrow.
HIGHLIGHTS: A woman in California was celebrating her birthday on Sunday, and the waitress accidentally gave her back the WRONG credit card. But instead of returning it, she hit a mall across the street and went on a SHOPPING SPREE. Only she took so long, the card's rightful owner was able to call the credit card company, track her down while she was STILL shopping, and have her arrested.
The World Wide Web of Misinformation says that Warner Brothers is putting MASSIVE pressure on CHRISTIAN BALE to play Batman again, for "Batman vs. Superman".
They've even offered him $50 MILLION. (That sounds pretty insane, but it's a foregone conclusion that this movie is going to be huge. And probably even more so with Bale.)
We've already heard some other possible candidates, including Josh Brolin, Orlando Bloom and Ryan Gosling.
HIGHLIGHTS: TAYLOR SWIFT gave an insightful speech about bullying during her introduction to "Mean" at a recent concert. She said "meanness" is part of the human condition . . . so don't try and change someone who embraces it. She asked the crowd to focus instead on how to react to bullying . . . and to, quote, "Make a mental note that you'll never make someone else feel the way they make you feel."
Have a great day!
