"America Loves You"

Give Jay Leno a hand.

He recently visited Afghanistan, performing for the troops in a USO show.

He came home wanting to do more. So he and the folks at The Today Show selected an active service member who was also a wounded warrior, and gave him a joy ride to remember.

Check out the video as Jay drove Corporal Ethan Laberge on the back roads around Fort Campbell, Kentucky in a brand-new 2015 Dodge HRT Hellcat - the muscle car of muscle cars.

And at the end of the ride...

You just have to watch it for yourself. And grab a hankie.

A Realistically Proportioned Fashion Doll

There's been a lot of pushback recently against the unrealistic proportions of Barbie dolls.

Except for those women who slave away to look like human Barbies, real women simply don't look like that.

So how would a "realistically proportioned fashion doll" fare in today's toy market?

Toy designer Nikolay Lamm aims to find out, with Lammily, a doll based on the proportions of the average 19-year-old woman.

To add to the realism, Lammily comes with stick-on tattoos, cellulite, stretch marks, scars and more.

Check out the video of a bunch of school kids getting to meet Lammily and compare her to a normal Barbie doll. It's pretty interesting...

One Winner Means Lots of Losers

On Jimmy Kimmel Live the other night, Jimmy got to break the news that Chris Hemsworth is People magazine's Sexiest Man Alive in 2014.

So, he's the winner.

Which means, every other man on the planet is the loser.

Like Jason Bateman, who thought he'd been invited to appear on Kimmel's show because he was going to get the award.

To make him feel better, Jimmy let Jason read his acceptance speech, which he'd prepared in anticipation of winning the award.

(For the record, Jason's an underrated comic actor...)

Spielberg? Or Squirrel?

This one's a commercial just waiting to happen.

Someone left his GoPro camera on the ground near a tree.

A curious squirrel approached and decided he must have the GoPro - or, he mistook it for a shiny nut.

Either way, the squirrel nabbed the camera and scooted up a tree with it.

The footage is pretty amazing, even when the squirrel drops it to the ground.

Could be the rodent version of Stephen Spielberg here...

Even Worse Than Misfit, These Toys Are Bad

A consumer advocacy group called WATCH - World Against Toys Causing Harm - this week issued its list of the Ten Worst Toys of 2014.

The worst, according to WATCH, is the Air Storm Firetek Bow, which can shoot arrows up to 145 feet.

There's also the Catapencil, an actual pencil with a slingshot at the top - surefire classroom fun right there.

A Battle Hammer designed for three-year-olds - the ones who think they're Thor, I guess.

The SWAT Electric Machine Gun was in the middle of the list. Surprising, really, when you consider the manufacturer's warning that it could be mistaken for the real thing by law enforcement personnel.

You can check out the full list in this article in The Daily Mail.

And check out the video of the press conference...

Fearsome Foursome

I just stumbled on this video - it's been floating around cyberspace for a few months - but it's mesmerizing.

The quartet is called Salut Salon - based in Hamburg, Germany, they mix classical music with some comedic stylings.

Playing another's instrument with her own bow, playing the piano upside down, playing their stringed instruments inverted...

They never miss a step or skip a note. Watch it once, and tell me that's enough!

Benzino Reportedly Fired From “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” For Issuing Death Thr

The reality show battle between former best friends Stevie J and Benzino apparently got so bad that VH1 had to fire Zino from Love & Hip Hop Atlanta. At least that is the story Stevie J told TMZ. The music producer claims the network had to let Benzino go because he threatened to harm Stevie, co-star Joseline Hernandez, producers, and staffers.

"He said flat out he was going to kill us," Stevie told the website.

It was announced that Benzino and his fiancee' Althea Eaton were issued pink slips last month. The co-founder of The Source stated at the time he felt the show's production team was merely taking the side of Stevie and Joseline. Benzino doubled down on that speculation with TMZ.

"Stevie J is a habitual liar and VH1 has never given me a reason for being fired," Benzino stated. "They wanted to keep the crackhead whore."

Both couples were involved in huge a melee during the taping of the reunion show earlier this year. The fight was partially sparked because Benzino and Althea made references to Stevie and Joseline being on drugs. Their ongoing feud was a main storyline during season three of the series.

Tyga Boycotts Club Banning Underage GF Kylie Jenner



According to TMZ, Tyga pulled a no-show for a club appearance when the place shot down his demands to get his underage GF Kylie Jenner
into the West Hollywood hot spot.

Sources at Greystone Manor tell TMZ ... Tyga begged and pleaded with promoters to get 17-year-old Kylie admitted -- calling several times throughout the day. We're told he even pushed his arrival time to 1:30 AM while trying to negotiate Kylie's entry.

When the club wouldn't budge -- y'know, because of the law and stuff -- he bailed.

We're told Tyga pulling out of the event pissed off a liquor sponsor in a big way. The club is trying to reschedule, but since the 21-and-over rule isn't changing ... seems pretty hopeless.

They may wanna call him back ... in four years.
