News Corp president Rupert Murdoch has struck a deal with Saudi Arabian Prince Alwaleed bin Talal that would make him the fourth largest investor in the company, which is also parent company to conservative mouthpiece Fox News.
You might remember Prince Alwaleed from the time he offered $10 million to the city of New York after 9/11 for reconstruction, only to be refused by then-Mayor Rudy Giuliani because the Prince blamed the attacks on the U.S. rather than on the terrorists themselves. Prince Alwaleed has also donated generous sums to the families of Palestinian suicide bombers.
It will be interesting to see if this changes the tune of Fox News coverage on the Middle East.

It’s only yesterday that we reported the disturbing speculation might that disco heroine and gay marriage crusader Lady Gaga might be an evil agent of the Illuminati. And well, well, well! Today we find out that she’s one step closer to world domination, now that she’s got her face on the US Dollar! Well, sort of: artist Craig Gleason has started selling dollar bills emblazoned with the face of the future Empress of the Universe!
If you want one, the bills are $15 a pop. A few more of my favorites after the jump.

[[ OMG, there’s more: JUMP IN to read the rest ]]

!! OMG, Karaoke Can Be Deadly !!

The New York Times brings us a very important report today about the scourge of Karaoke-related murders that are sweeping the Phillipines. Whatever you do, don’t sing Frank Sinatra!

GENERAL SANTOS, the Philippines — After a day of barbering, Rodolfo Gregorio went to his neighborhood karaoke bar still smelling of talcum powder. Putting aside his glass of Red Horse Extra Strong beer, he grasped a microphone with a habituĂ©’s self-assuredness and briefly stilled the room with the Platters’ “My Prayer.”

…But Mr. Gregorio, 63, a witness to countless fistfights and occasional stabbings erupting from disputes over karaoke singing, did not dare choose one beloved classic: Frank Sinatra’s version of “My Way.”

“I used to like ‘My Way,’ but after all the trouble, I stopped singing it,” he said. “You can get killed.”

The authorities do not know exactly how many people have been killed warbling “My Way” in karaoke bars over the years in the Philippines, or how many fatal fights it has fueled. But the news media have recorded at least half a dozen victims in the past decade and includes them in a subcategory of crime dubbed the “My Way Killings.”

While this problem may be currently restricted to the Phillipines, I wouldn’t be surprised if the rest of the world quickly followed. I don’t know about My Way in particular, but I’ve definitely been moved nearly to murder watching a bunch piss drunk frat idiots singing Don’t Stop Believin’. And do not get me started on Sister Christian!
