The President at play:
The Twitter-sphere wasn't happy yesterday with a photo posted of PRESIDENT OBAMA's arrival in New York. The problem? The president is seen in the photo, posted by the White House on Instagram, saluting Marines with a cup of coffee in hand.
It was dubbed on Twitter as both the "Starbucks salute" and "latte salute." (Pacelli)
Trash talk and satellite dish:
As we pointed out yesterday, it appears that Tampa, FL, woman who claimed to have had plastic surgery to add a third breast is probably a fake.
TMZ.com says JASMINE TRIDEVIL faked the plastic surgery after they obtained a police report filed by her after her bag was stolen at Tampa International Airport. The report says the bag which was stolen contained "3 breast prosthesis." Case closed.
BRUCE JENNER was busy spending his hard-earned cash on an impulse buy while KRIS JENNER filed for divorce. TMZ.com reports the former Olympian dropped 50-grand on a UTV race car at the Sand Sports Super Show in Orange County, California last Monday. Word is he was "grinning from ear-to-ear" after the purchase and bought it from NASCAR stud ROBBY GORDON. (Lee)
PHARRELL WILLIAMS has a new accessories collection coming out. Fashionista.com says the "Happy" singer is teaming up with Moynat, a French luxury leather goods brand owned by Louis Vuitton's parent company. The collection will include limited edition bags in the shapes of vintage trains, made out of acrylic resin and carved ebony wood. It sounds very cool... and very expensive (Almost $13-K for the resin bag and $41-hundred for the wood)! Smaller items with the train designs will also be sold, including silk scarves and leather pouches. The only bad news: no funky Pharrell hats from the funky hat man. (Bartha)
Taking everything much too seriously:
Warning: Note disgusting content!
A pair of British chefs say they've created a "human flesh" burger in honor of the TV series, 'Walking Dead'.
The cooks call themselves the "Messhead Team" and they promise their meat doesn't contain actual human flesh. The flavor of the burgers was designed based on testimonials from famous cannibals throughout history. It contains pork, veal, chicken livers, and bone marrow. The Walking Dead Burgers will be available to sample at the end of the month at the Terminus Tavern in East London, which hasn't opened its doors yet. (Still)
