It’s no secret that Law and Order loves borrowing story lines from the real world. Tabloid antics with celebs from Tom Cruise to Michael Jackson have turned into episode gold for the crime drama. The teaser for the next Law and Order: SVU involves a troubled celeb couple that are a liiiittle too similar to Rihanna and Chris Brown – and one of them dies! Riri’s definitely had trouble keeping endorsements since she and CB got back together, but I doubt their love story will take a turn this shocking. Still makes for good TV!
I’m writing this with great hesitation and mild disgust. A couple days ago my sister was telling me about some made for TV documentary about how the “new thing” college students are doing is BUTT CHUGGING.
According to Urban Dictionary, butt chugging is the act of ingesting alcohol through one’s rectum to increase the alcohol’s effect and the speed with which one becomes intoxicated. Used in a sentence: “Hello Jonathan! Would you care to attend my party? We will be Butt Chugging!”
I know. WTF. While I’m pretty much writing this entire post with as much withdrawal as possible, I figure it’s part of my job to bring you what’s happening on campus.
Here are five things you need to know:
1. The so-called “vessel” for butt chugging is either a funnel or a soaked tampon. The latter of those two things is called “slimming.”
2. Alcohol is absorbed through your bloodstream faster through your rectum than through your mouth. Aka, it’s not just for show! There’s apparently a point to it…
3. One benefit: you won’t get the smell of alcohol on your breath. Though personally I merely wonder: “have you heard of gum?”
4. It’s not a new term. Look: Read more…

In the criminal justice system at Greendale, there are two types of people; those who cause trouble and those who try to bring the troublemakers to justice. This is a story of the latter.
The crime scene is Greendale’s biology lab, where a yam (alias Sweet Potato) had been brutally dropped on the floor and stepped on. The case was time-sensitive, as the Greendale study group charged with solving the crime had to prove someone sabotaged their biology project by class on the following day.
The case was a tough one, possibly the toughest of their careers. But with special investigators Troy Barnes and Abed Nadir beating the pavement for hard evidence and district attorney Jeff Winger fighting for the chance to plead the case to the biology class, it should have been an open and shut case. Instead, Sargent Annie Edison and her team uncovered a plot to take down the yams of an entire biology class in the Case of the Smashed Yam.
With that in mind, five things I learned on last night’s episode, “Basic Lupine Urology” are:
1) Starburns is dead. Or maybe he’s not, we’ll have to wait until next episode. But for now, let’s remember him as he was, a conscientious young student who worked hard in school, had a minor kleptomania problem, and whose life was tragically cut short by a freak meth-lab explosion in the trunk of his car. Who’s to say it couldn’t happen to any one of us?
2) Apparently the United States army takes time out of its busy schedule to defend its former soldiers in front of their community college biology classes in cases where yams and honour are involved. I can’t be sure the army defends solely in cases with yams, but I’ve yet to see an instance without one. Read more…
Jesse L. Martin, who has portrayed Det. Greene on “Law and Order” will exit the series this year, Variety reports.
No reason was given for the exit, although the trade magazine says Anthony Anderson, currently on the Fox show K-Ville will replace him.
Insiders say that Martin will shoot one more episode of the NBC drama this season, before Anderson replaces him. It is being assumed Fox will be canceling K-Ville, freeing up Anderson for the role.
Green will be written out of the show, though insiders are not saying how.
Martin is most well-known for portraying Tom Collins in the original Broadway cast of “Rent.”
Law and Order: SVU could be on it’s last legs because NBC is playing hardball with the series’ stars, reports Fox News.
NBC is apparently reluctant to give Mariska Hargitay and Chris Meloni the big raises they’ve been asking for. According to insiders, NBC is acting like it doesn’t care if the series returns or not.
“They’re acting like they want Chris and Mariska out of there,” a source told Fox News. Ongoing negotiations are reportedly going horribly.
Both stars have received Emmy nominations or wins in the past years, but NBC may save money by pulling the plug on the show.
Law & Order: SVU is consistently a ratings success for NBC, easily winning it’s Tuesday night time slot.
“Law and Order” continues its “ripped from the headlines” storylines.
In the season premiere, a star couple with a new baby, whom the movie star mother has had problems keeping her, ahem, hands on her baby in front of photographers, while her husband creates a rap album was reminiscent of Britney Spears, K-Fed and baby Sean Preston.
Reuters is reporting that L&O will air an episode Nov. 3 based on the troubles actor Mel Gibson got himself into this past summer.
Chevy Chase is set to portray the actor who is pulled over for drinking and driving, and then proceeds to go on an anti-Semitic rant.
L&O will change things up by Chase’s character having blood on his shirt which belongs to a Jewish producer of his sitcom.
Mariska Hargitay and her husband Peter Hermann have welcomed their first child together, a baby boy last night in Los Angeles, US Weekly reports.
The baby’s name has not been released, but details of his birth have. He was born at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center and weighed in at 10 pounds, 9 ounces.
Hargitay plays Detective Olivia Benson on Law and Order: SVU, which is where she met Hermann (he played a defense attorney).
The couple have been married for two years and this is the first child for both actors.
