After two days of debating helium legislation in the House, Republican Hank Johnson of Georgia had enough. He decided the best way to end the pointless debate was to get up and give a sarcastic speech about the merits of helium – and it could not have been more hilarious.
While his spokesman insisted it was all a joke, let’s not forget this is the man who once expressed concern that increased military presence in Guam would cause the island to capsize. Joking or not, I’m just glad somebody is bringing attention to the fact that there are more important things to be dealt with than whether or not comedians should have the right to use helium in their stand up performances. Plus, his puns were spot on.

The Christmas season is upon us, which naturally means people are more trusting and thus susceptible to hilarious pranks. BaratsAndBereta created three holiday pranks to test out on different people in your life: Your kids, your significant other, and your colleagues.
All in all, these pranks will probably result in your child being emancipated, a proposal (or breakup) and a few hours off from work. What are some of your favourite holiday pranks?

I’ve always been afraid of wax museums because the figures inside look so REAL. But hey, if they come in the form of One Direction, I guess I’ll have to make an exception.
In a special for iTV, the boys of 1D took a trip to Madame Tussaud’s in London to surprise some lucky Directioners. How? By pretending to be waxed models, of course!!
While I wasn’t sure how this was going work out, I must admit that the boys (especially Harry) were rather convincing.
It’s a sweet gesture by the boys, who are known to be quite the pranksters. But like the first girl who got the big surprise, I would have screamed just like her if I found out.
LAHWF‘s Andrew Hales latest prank involved going up to random strangers on his university’s campus, covering their eyes and telling them to “guess who.” Even after many of them admitted to not knowing who the hell he was, he kept insisting they met a couple weeks ago.
While many of the ladies were quite positive they still had no idea who he was, some of the guys were all: “Oh yeah, I know you from somewhere, where do you I know you from?”
Considering a few people are starting to recognize him from his other pranks, he’ll have to start pranking a whole new campus soon (he often goes to Brigham Young University and Utah Valley). In the past, Hales has pranked people by by pretending to steal their cell phones and telling corny jokes to complete strangers.

With pal Cameron Diaz offering her beat boxing talents, the duo did a hip hop jig for Chelsea Handler, who just moved her talk show into a new studio.
In the rap, Diaz and Paltrow even poked fun of Handler’s taste in men.
With lyrics like, “You like black guys, white guys, whoever’s around. Your bedroom looks like it’s a lost and found. We kinda like you because you’re blonde like us, but we can’t hang wit’ you in public ’cause you drink too much!”, it’s pretty clear these two ladies know how to have some fun.
But if this is any indication of how musically talented Gwyneth is, I’d like to see how she’d fare in an actual rap battle!
How powerful is Demi Lovato? Well powerful enough to get a major company like Disney to pull an episode of a show and apologize. So what happened? Demi was upset over an eating disorder joke in the Disney show, “Shake It Up,” reports TMZ.
Lovato, who left the Disney show “Sonny With a Chance” to deal with an eating disorder, didn’t like the joke in “Shake It Up” — “I could just eat you up, well if I ate.”
Demi sent out a variety of tweets, one of them saying, ”I find it really funny how a company can lose one of their actress’ from the pressures of an EATING DISORDER and yet still make joke about that very disease…..
Disney responded by saying, ”We hear you & are pulling both episodes as quickly as possible & reevaluating them … It’s NEVER our intention to make light of eating disorders!”
That’s pretty impressive Demi, and way to make Mickey Mouse your bitch.
Britney Spears is searching for a homeless man who wants Britney’s new album. Britney came across a picture of the man holding a sign saying he needs cash to buy her latest CD.
“Need to get new Britney Spears CD. Anything will help. God bless”.
Now Spears has posted the picture of the man on micro-blogging site Twitter and asked fans to try and locate the man, reports contactmusic.
“If anyone can find this gentleman I’ve got a package with my entire catalog (sic) with his name on it… -Britney, ” the 29-year-old posted.
Britney – are you serious? The homeless guy is obviously trying to be funny. Besides, what is he going to play your music on? We don’t think he owns a stereo or an iPod.
50 Cent took to his Twitter to mock the earthquake and tsunami that occurred in Japan on Friday, Perez Hilton reports.
His Twitter contained jokes about those suffering in Japan, and trust me, they aren’t funny. He wrote:
“Its all good Till b*tches see there christian louboutins floating down da street shit gone get crazy.”
“Wave will hit 8am them crazy white boys gonna try to go surfing.”
“Look this is very serious people I had to evacuate all my hoe’s from LA,Hawaii and Japan. I had to do it. Lol”
He must have realized that he was being offensive to those affected, because he later tweeted an apology over the insensitive tweets:
“Nah this is nuts but what can anyone do about it. Let’s pray for anyone who has lost someone.”
“Some of my tweets are ignorant I do it for shock value. Hate it or love it. I’m cool either way 50cent”
I mean, is 50 Cent so desperate for attention that he has to mock death and tragedy in order to get his name out there? 50 has made homophobic tweets before as well, so it doesn’t surprise me that he’s stooped so low once again. Just because your music career isn’t as hot as it used to be doesn’t mean you have to take down everyone with you. An apology really isn’t enough either – made you should think about donating some money to help Japan recover. And not just 50 cents.
It looks like another 30 Rock cast member is in trouble with Sarah Palin!
Semi-crazy person Tracy Morgan is being berated for his comments on the SAG Awards red carpet last night. Morgan, who just days ago called the former Alaska Governor “good masturbation material,” used an aside in his interview with Guliana Rancic to shout “Sarah Palin, you’re the hottest MILF in the world!”
Rancic, taken aback, attempted to steer the conversation in a different direction but Morgan would not follow. “She’s a MILF!” he shouted again.
What? He’s just saying what we’re all thinking!
A statement was hurriedly released apologizing for Morgan’s comments, but we don’t think they needed an apology! As if MILF is the worst thing he could have said. Pfft. Palin, we think you got off easy on that one.
This is kind of strange considering the guy looked pretty serious on “Good Day L.A.,” and later confirmed his intentions during an interview with the Associated Press. However he reaffirms he’s not serious.
Not sure if this was that great of a joke. We are talking about him at least, but we aren’t laughing.
