Casting agents for the upcoming Lord of the Rings TV show are in desperate need of extras to play orcs! They are looking for toothless, heavily-wrinkled and hairy people to apply. The ad reads they’d like to see natural red hair, white hair, or lots and lots of freckles. They’re also looking for stocky mean-looking bikers in all shapes and sizes.
The Sun claims Londoner Amanda Johns recently shaved the word ELF into the back of her 16 year-old son’s head. She blamed the shaving on her Elf on the Shelf. Amanda’s son was sleeping when he was shaved. Amanda tells the newspaper, “It was completely worth it to see Tegan’s face light up in the morning.” (Tegan, if I were you, from now on. I’d sleep with one eye open.)
Fox News says an intoxicated man on an S7 Airlines flight was recently taped to a seat by fellow passengers. The man had been acting aggressively towards flight attendants and attempted to storm the cockpit. The passengers subdued the man by wrapping packing tape around him and attaching him to a seat. It took a little while to make it happen, as they couldn’t get the wrapping tape roll started. (You know how that is.)
