Beware the Stoner Rabbits!

An agent for the Drug Enforcement Administration appeared before Utah's Senate last week to speak against a proposed bill that would legalize marijuana.

Specifically, he's afraid that allowing marijuana to be grown in the state would hurt the environment.

Why? Because rabbits and other wildlife could cultivate a taste for marijuana.

In fact, he said he witnessed such behavior, in a rabbit who'd developed a taste for the herb and lost his natural instinct to run.

Good to know the government's out there protecting us from stoner rabbits...

Listen to Agent Fairbanks' testimony here. Some of it is flat-out hilarious.

Feel Like Living Like the Walking Dead?

If you're a fan of The Walking Dead and you've got $680,000, then Grantville, Georgia could be just the spot for you.

Not the whole town - just the downtown.

And the downtown is famous for its use as a set in The Walking Dead.

The town's economy used to depend on textiles. That industry went away years ago.

These days, the industry is tourism, as in Walking Dead tourists.

The nine buildings up for sale are commercial properties, so if you've got a flair for developing - and don't mind a bunch of zombies walking around from time to time - get on eBay and make your bid!

Now This is Scary

Like skydiving isn't scary enough.

Christopher Jones was at 12,000 feet, just out of his plane, when he was paralyzed by a seizure.

His instructor realized he was in trouble and flew over to him, managing to pull the emergency chute.

Jones woke up at 3,000 feet and was able to control his landing.

So far, the video of his plunge and rescue has had over 5 million hits. Amazing.

I don't think you'd ever catch me jumping out of a plane, but if you did, and this happened, you'd probably never catch me in an elevator again.

They Cut Meryl Streep?

Meryl Streep plays The Witch in Into the Woods, a movie that started its life as a Broadway musical written by the legendary Stephen Sondheim.

Sondheim wrote a new song for the film - "She'll Be Back" - to be sung by Meryl's character.

And she sang it, and it was in the movie, and then it wasn't.

Director Rob Marshall says that it was for the good of the movie - that the movie was stronger without it.

But not to worry.

These days, nothing really gets thrown away, and the word is that the song will be included in the bonus features when the film gets its DVD release.

Here's a little taste.

Stolen and "Maliciously Altered"

By now, you've probably seen the picture of Cindy Crawford that was all over the internet a week or so ago.

It showed Cindy in a bra and panties, wearing a hat and some sort of stole.

The story that went with the photo was that it showed Cindy in all her unretouched glory - a celebration of a woman embracing her real body.

Turns out the photo was actually stolen and "maliciously altered," according to Cindy's attorneys.

They are threatening to sue everyone who posted the picture if they don't take it down and apologize.

For the record, Cindy's husband posted this picture to Instagram to show what she really looks like.

She got flowers and I got her. Happy Valentines Day @cindycrawford

A photo posted by Rande Gerber (@randegerber) on

And if you don't believe the picture, listen to what Christie Brinkley had to say about Cindy in an interview with Access Hollywood last week...

Dude! What's That White Stuff on the Ground?

Folks in Huntington Beach and other coastal communities in southern California had a little weather surprise yesterday.

Pea-sized hail fell on the area, and for a while, coated the beaches and grassy areas with white stuff.

A rare occasion, to be sure. It didn't stick around long - as you'll see from the video, it melted pretty quickly - which is certain to upset folks in the Northeast, who've been dealing with record amounts of unmeltedness this season.

And as you'll see from the video, at least one enterprising Californian figured out a way to surf on it.

Hail's up, dude!

Kelly Osbourne quits Fashion Police

Kelly Osbourne quit "Fashion Police" and E! is considering replacing her with Khloe Kardashian or NeNe Leakes, according to Us Weekly.

Oh. Well, I guess I'll rip up my application, then.

Osbourne supposedly quit over Giulianna Rancic's comments on the show about Oakland's Zendaya showing up to the Oscars with dreadlocks. Osbourne actually threatened to quit, Rancic apologized profusely, and Osbourne quit anyway.

Why do I think there's more to this story?

"They did the Zendaya segment three times," an insider reportedly told Us Weekly. "Three different takes. On the first two takes, Kelly said 'Guys, we can't say this. Zendaya is a friend of the show.'"

An E! rep denied that. "There was only one take of Giuliana's comments. Kelly did let the group know Zendaya is a friend of hers."

Either way, the joke was kept in, Zendaya got mad, Osbourne got mad, Rancic apologized, and Osbourne quit.

Don't Believe It? Just Watch!

"Uptown Funk" is one of the hottest tunes in the country.

It's one of those songs that gets your blood pumping and toes tapping.

Until now.

Thanks to Alex Bove and the Dancing Grandpas, "Uptown Funk" got slowed down - well, a little bit.

It's called "Oldtown Cover," and everyone in the video is at least 65 years old...

So some of the moves are way slower than the Bruno Mars version. Naturally.
