Desperate Working Mommas
Your one-stop site for fanatical television snarking, questionable political analysis, occasional attempts to address the parenting issues facing working mothers, and halfhearted promises to stop obsessing about the entertainment industry, already! Oh, not to mention the random bitching and moaning. There's always that.

$0.02 ain't what it used to be...

Regarding Watergate, Tom Cruise-style:

For the record, I would have been colossally pissed off, too. I thought he handled himself well, under the circumstances. That was INCREDIBLY rude, crazy TomKat notwithstanding.

"Why would you do that?"
Punk!y Faux Cameraman shrugs.
"Why?! You're a jerk..."

Me? At this point, I would have had to break out some of my mad ninja skillz. Obviously.

Then again, I should probably mention that I do not take practical jokes particularly well. Ask TGIM. He has the scars to prove it. No, literally. Uh-oh. Better not go there...


Stupid Ashton Kutcher for stupidly Punk!ing celebrities, inspiring half-assed British wannabe Punk!ers to, um, er, stupidly attempt to Punk! celebrities... while said celebrities are trying to work...

Aw, forget it. You know what I mean.

(ETA: If you feel as if, gosh darn it all, you need just a tad more information to make a well-informed decision regarding your feelings about Watergate, Tom Cruise-style, feel free to click here. Okay. My work here is done.)

Tom Cruise has become one freaky mofo. But since he is forever Maverick in my book, I am willing to side with him on this one. But I will bet he's lost that loving feeling towards the British press, that's for darn sure.

At least Punk'd gets a friend of the celebrity to be in on the joke... cushions the blow a bit. I'm sure the "reporter" thought it was funny - and that Tom (in his newly euphoric state) could take a joke. However, it was totally uncalled for in the current age of terrorism. It could have been acid or some chemical. I would have freaked out, too.

Good call on the terrorism aspect, Charlotte.

I'm not a big fan of practical jokes -- whether it's "funny business" at the airport, or squirted in the face with a microphone shaped water gun. Neither is funny to me, but that's me.

Oh, and raise your hand if you *really* think the whole TomKat thing will last *forever.* Please.

Tom sure was Pissed. I thought it kinda funny... Just wanted to say thanks for coming by to see my goofy face, you must go though a lot of undies reading blogs. I know I do when I read Kristines and Shauns... '-)

I'm so lost about this, I have no idea what the story is. Can somebody fill in the blanks for me please? ;)

Hey! Bente! Thanks for reminding me that I know WAY too much about the entertainment industry gossip and goings-ons...

Yikes. I need a life, yo?

Ok, I'm all caught up now. I think it would have ticked me off a little too, only cause it would have been kinda embarassing to be the joke. I do, however, think Tom has gone to the dark/weird side lately.

Toooooooom... Powerful you have become, the Dark Side I sense in you...

Okay. Stopping. I'm stopping now. Pinky promise.

(If you only knew the power of the Dark Side!)

I always knew the Dark Side was strong in that one.

If they get married and she has twin boy and girls, I'm gonna freak OUT.

but yeah squirting water in a guy's face? A little silly. don't you think jumping up and down on Oprah's couch looked more like WE were getting punked? What's a water gun gonna do, make him look even STUPIDER? Nah, he took care of that himself!

C'mon Tom, lighten up. I'm SURE you've been squirted in the face with MUCH worse.

Shaun, Shaun, Shaun...
Why you gotta be like that, dude? Why?!
And, ew.

Two things:

1. Tommy handled himself well. Much less scary than when he announced his love for Katie on Oprah.

2. Dude's been such a asshole lately, he deserves to be sprayed down with a frickin'...I dunno, whatever sprays hard. A fireman's hose? You catch my drift, anyhow.
