Seems like The View is famous for putting people on their panel with a proclivity for putting their feet in their mouths.

Case in point: Kelly Osbourne.

For some reason, the ladies of The View were discussing The Donald's plan to deport illegal aliens.

And Kelly finds it ridiculous.

So she points out that if Donald gets his wish to remove all the Latinos from the USA, he won't have anyone to clean his toilets.

Which is just slightly more ridiculous.

And when you get called out by Raven Symone - girlfriend, it's time to rethink your life.

"If you kick every Latino out of this country, then who is going to be cleaning your toilet, Donald Trump?"- Kelly Osbourne on "The View" More here:

A police officer in Rochester, Michigan was on patrol on Sunday when he spotted a baby skunk in the street.

The skunk was walking in circles, because its head was stuck in a yogurt container.

Rather than drive by and leave the skunk to its own devices, the cop got out, approached the skunk with a great deal of caution, and managed to pluck the container from the skunk's head.

His reward? You guessed it. The skunk raised its tail and took aim.

It's not clear if the skunk unleashed its awful perfume, but it sure was ready to do just that.

Check out this video the Rochester Police Department posted on Facebook. It shows a baby skunk with a yogurt container on it's head. Watch what happens.

Kevin Bacon is an activist.

He's frequently out front, campaigning for the rights of those who can't campaign for themselves.

Now, he's part of the oppressed group, and he's taking a stand.

A stand for gratuitous male nudity in Hollywood.

When it comes to Freeing The Bacon, Kevin is serious...

Or not. But watch this. It's very funny!

The new season of True Detective on HBO has been taking some shots from critics who find it really difficult to follow.

The dialogue is stilted, and frequently unintelligible.

So as the season trudges to an end, why not put snippets of dialogue out there and see if audience members can tell the difference between True Detective sayings and fortune cookie sayings?

That's the basis of the sketch on Late Night with Seth Myers the other night.

"If you have no idea what that means, welcome to the world of True Detective..." is probably the best line of the bit.

Fox News announced the ten Republican presidential candidates who will appear in its prime-time presidential debate tomorrow night in Cleveland between 9 and 11PM.

Picking ten - they claim it was done scientifically, and we can all believe Fox News, right? - leaves seven candidates to the not-prime-time debate to be held between 5 and 6PM.

Here's the line-up: #1 - Donald Trump; #2 - Jeb Bush; #3 - Scott Walker; #4 - Mike Huckabee; #5 - Ben Carson; #6 - Ted Cruz; #7 - Marco Rubio; #8 - Rand Paul; #9 - Chris Christie; and #10 - John Kasich.

Listen to the Fox News moderators trip over themselves with excitement...

It's hard for me to even write this, but I guess it's official.

After 40 years together, one of show biz's most endearing couples has headed for Splitsville.

Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy made it official yesterday, with both of them releasing the same statement on Twitter.
  Naturally, cynical minds think this is just a publicity stunt to get people to watch The Muppets this fall on ABC.

Cynical show-biz minds, like the one inside the head of Alan Cumming. But Miss Piggy says it's all very real.
  Maybe if we hope, and pray, and threaten to hold our breath until we all turn as blue as Cookie Monster, they'll reconsider...

Let's do it!

A line of intense thunderstorms ripped across the tiny state of Rhode Island yesterday morning.

The cities of Cranston and Warwick, in the middle of the state, were hardest hit when a phenomenon called microbursts ripped up trees and down power lines and caused general chaos.

We've all seen pictures of the aftermath of severe storms, but here's one I've never seen before.

In Cranston, one guy's lawn was torn up.

Whatever the weather was, it tipped over a tree and the tree lifted up the lawn in the front yard, making it look like a grass teepee when it was done.

Have you ever seen anything like it before?

Incredible picture this morning out of Cranston, RI. I don't think I've ever seen this before! Photo by my friend and former WCSH colleague Brian Yocono.

Kim Richards - formerly one of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills - was arrested on Sunday at a Target in Los Angeles.

The charge? Shoplifting.

She allegedly walked out of the store with a shopping cart filled with about 100 different items worth over $600.

Entertainment Tonight has the story. The best quote comes from her ex-husband, who said, "This was a clear misunderstanding."

Sure. We all misunderstand that when we put things in a carriage at Target, we have to pay for them before taking them out of the store.

Happens to me all the time...

Eight Things That Make You Look Unprofessional

Here are eight things that can make you look unprofessional at work . . .

1. Profanity. You might be able to get away with swearing occasionally. But don't use the F-word as filler any time you speak passionately about something.

2. Constantly being late to work or meetings. It shows a lack of respect.

3. Checking out attractive co-workers. If THEY catch you doing it, you'll know. But it's more likely one of your OTHER co-workers will see it, and you'll have no idea.

4. Pretending everything's fine when it's not. Optimism is good, but you need to be realistic.

5. Being flaky. Meaning you say you'll do something, then don't. Or you don't do it on time.

6. Being disorganized. Which could mean everything from a messy desk to not answering emails.

7. Being inarticulate. That includes using the word "like" too much, and filler words like "uh" and "um" all the time.

8. Overpromising. Before you tell a co-worker or client you can do something, make sure you actually CAN do it.

There's a new nutrition drink out there called Soylent 2.0.

It's an all-in-one meal replacement drink that's being touted as the future of nutrition.

Here's a quote from their blog: "Soylent 2.0 is designed from the ground-up to provide the vitamins, minerals, fats, carbohydrates, and protein that the body needs - all in a convenient, ready-to-drink package."

One of the main ingredients is algae, which the inventors say represents a sustainable food source.

They posted this video to their blog - I'm not 100% sure how it's selling Soylent 2.0, except for the package of it at the end...


But here's the question I have: did no one on the marketing team ever hear of a 1973 sci-fi pic starring Charlton Heston called Soylent Green?

It centered around a world where a food product called Soylent Green was in abundance and keeping the world alive.

The only problem... Well, don't let me spoil it for you. Watch Charlton Heston from the end of the film...


So maybe knowing that, the Soylent 2.0 marketing team could go back to the drawing board for a name?

Just sayin'...
