Stephen Colbert has been named Man of the Year by the U. S. Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen, Co, the largest such festival in the United States. It's a pretty big honor for a comedian, and it celebrates the fact that The Colbert Report has achieved a level of success that can not be denied any longer, which is an awesome thing.

TheFeed was originally offered the award, but had to decline when sjohnson and dvinson got into a fist fight over who would be making the acceptance speech, and emorton had to read them the Riot Act. Clearly, we are not ready for those kinds of accolades. Maybe next year.

Uh oh. Is Steven Spielberg an art thief? Well, technically, yes. But maybe he didn't know about it. Seems the famous director bought a $700,000 Norman Rockwell painting called Russian Schoolroom from a reputable art dealer in 1989, but the painting had been stolen in 1973, which makes Spielberg an art thief! How did they find this painting, you ask? His staff ratted him out, presumably because their Christmas bonus sucked.

The FBI, who are reposnsible for investigating?major art crime, have reclaimed the painting for their own, and are holding it until they can decide what to do with it.We think they should put Spielberg in jail. Maybe it'll help him get his edge back. He could remake Scared Straight!

You know how we reported earlier this week that Bobby Brown posted bail and released from jail after three nights of lockup? Well, it turns out that a radio station paid the $19,150 Brown owed in late child-support payments and court fees for the faded pop star

A judge ordered Brown held in the Norfolk County jail in Dedham until he paid after constables arrested the singer while he was watching his daughter's cheerleading competition at a local high school.

Washington D.C. area station Hot 99.5 FM's The Kane Show flipped the bill following on-air discussions and two days of negotiation with Brown's attorney.

"In exchange for the money, he agreed to be an employee of our radio station for one week," where he will discuss what he did wrong and how he could turn his life around, said Kane. "We are going to have a very open and candid conversation."

Wow. Now THAT's gonna be a good week or radio...maybe the only good week of radio in 2007 since the entire industry is pretty much over with...

Prepare for?the greatest news of this or any other day: Cosmologist and theoretical physiscist Stephen Hawking is going for a zero-gravity plane flight, and later into space!

Hawkings, the genius behind A Brief History of Time, is taking the zero-G?plunge (har) in April on a plane operated by Zero Gravity Corporation, a Fort Lauderdale, Fla.-based space tourism and entertainment company at the Kennedy Space Center.

"As someone who has studied gravity and black holes all of my life, I am excited to experience first hand weightlessness and a zero-gravity environment," Hawking said in a statement.

That's not all, though. Hawking is also destined to be one of the first civilians to take a ride into space through Richard Branson's private space company, Virgin Galactic, when it gets off the ground (har) sometime after 2009.

It is with a heavy heart that we must inform you that you won't be seeing Big Pussy on television any time soon. Yes, it's disappointing, because don't we all love Big Pussy, but Big Pussy simply can't handle the physical strain that goes hand-in-hand with being a part of our lives on a weekly basis. The new season of Dancing With the Stars won't be as good without him.

Sopranos star Vincent "Big Pussy" Pastore has opted out of the show after a week of training, because as he puts it, "I didn't realize just how physically demanding it would be for me. Unable to put forth my best effort, I felt it appropriate to step aside and give someone else the opportunity."

It's not like he would have won anyway, not against 'N Sync's Joey Fatone. Now that one-legged broad, Heather Mills he could have beat, but not the guy who made his living as much for his singing and good looks as for his ability to prance about. You can't out-dance a man paid to prance, period. Maybe his as-yet-unnamed replacement will stand a better shot.

Bobby Brown Free!!!

Pop sensation Bobby Brown is finally free after three nights in a Norfolk County jail. He paid $19,000 in late child support and court fees and was released Wednesday night after he was arrested while watching his daughter's cheerleading competition at Attleboro High School.

Brown is scheduled to appear Thursday in Norfolk Probate and Family Court, where he has appeared many time before in his long history of failing to pay support on time.

Brown has apparently been struggling to meet monthly payments to Kim Ward, the mother of two of his teenage children.

"Although this agreement was put in place when he was Bobby Brown the star, this agreement is being enforced when he is not always able to find work," Atlanta attorney Phaedra Parks told The Associated Press. "He hasn't made an album in quite some years."

You may recall that Brown and Whitney Houston are divorcing after 14 years of marriage. They have one daughter...and one helluva?killer reality show legacy...

There's a restaurant called Brulee in Atlantic City, NJ, that has a $1000 brownie on its menu. The brownie is apparently made with Italian hazelnuts and has real edible gold baked right in, but that's not what costs $1000. No, that would be the $250 port in the $750 atomizer that the dessert captain sprays on your tongue after each bite of the brownie. Of course, you get to keep the atomizer.

So, I interviewed my mom, who lives in Atlantic City, to see if she'd ever consider paying that kind of money for a brownie.

TheFeed: Mom, would you seriously ever spend a grand on a brownie?

Mom: If I had a thousand dollars of completely disposable income, I might spend it on the experience.

Sean "Diddy" Combs is reportedly being accused of battery from an incident that occurred at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel last Sunday, the day of the Academy Awards.

Police took a report from real estate agent Gerard Rechnitzer, 27, who accused Puffy of battery at the hotel, located across the street from the Kodak Theatre. He told cops he was punched on the right side of his face by someone who had talked to his girlfriend. The report does not list the rap mogul by name but police ID'd Puff as the suspect.

Does anyone care about this??We thought not...

James Cameron is one adventurous dude. He's piloted a diving bell to see the husk of the Titanic, gone underwater to shoot The Abyss, even reinvented 3D with T2-3D, but nothing is more notable than having found Jesus' grave.

Yes, Mr. Cameron is saying that he's found the coffins of Jesus Christ and his family, including his wife and child. And, yes, I know that you're thinking 'What wife and child?' but there's rampant speculation over the last few years that there was a wife and child, and that the church has been covering it up for years.

As TheFeed's frankmeyer just noted, 'What if it's possible that the director of The Terminator actually found Jesus' grave?' He then went on to compare it to John Carpenter discovering time travel. And that's very funny. In the meantime, there will be more Jesus news as we find it.

Britney 'Gene Kelly's' SUV

TheFeed was nervous, kiddies. Where would our Britney headline come today? Could our bread and butter be leaving us? And then, she went and attacked a car with an umbrella. And there are pics to prove it.

The good news is that the car may well have been K-Fed's SUV. There is no bad news. Apparently, Brit's mom drove her there so that she could do it. Can you imagine that conversation for a second? 'Mom, this is just something I need to do. I will not achieve catharsis unless this car gets, like, fully beaten down with my bumbershoot.'

Did we mention that there were pics? Oh, yes. Now, we're wondering if Britney is bats**t crazy, or if she's brilliant. Like, at any moment, she might reveal the grand plan she's been working on, and everyone will go, 'Ohhh...wow. We never expected that.' Or maybe she's been invaded by pod people. No matter what, this whole thing just keeps getting weirder and weirder.

Biotch. Be. Crazy.

Ruben Studdard, the rubenesque winner of 2003's American Idol has followed in the?gigantic footsteps of?Kool Rock-Ski, former member of the novelty hip-hop group The Fat Boys,?by dropping a lot of weight. Studdard's dropped 100 pounds since he started dieting last summer, so he's taking his message of good health directly to the group that needs it most, the children.

I don't want y'all to get to college and stop working out and forget all the things you have to do to be healthy... I want y'all to continue working out for the rest of your life so you don't have to start all over like Ruben Studdard, trying to get yourself back into shape."

Oh man, so many places one could go with this one. Should there be a fat joke here, or perhaps a joke about Alabama? You decide, dear readers! Post a comment and give us your best fat joke or Alabama joke, Let the quest for hilarity begin!

A Second Shot Of Brandy

Posted February 22, 2007 - By Frank Meyer

Singer/actress Brandy just got slapped with a second wrongful death lawsuit over the December freeway crash she was involved in that left a woman dead.

On Jan. 30, a $50 million lawsuit claimed she was driving recklessly when her sport utility vehicle struck the back of a Honda driven by Awatef Aboudihaj on December 30. The new suit was filed Feb. 8 in Los Angeles Superior Court on behalf of Aboudihaj's parents, who say her two young sons will be forever harmed by the loss of their mother and asks for damages to be determined at the trial.

The city attorney's office is still deciding whether to charge the singer with misdemeanor vehicular manslaughter, which was recommended by California Highway Patrol investigators. I think we can assume that suit is being prepared as you read this...

If charged and convicted, Brandy, 28, faces up to a year in jail and a $1,000 fine. Wow. A year and a grand for killing someone? First, off I doubt she's get that. Second, if that's all it costs to kill, I have a few people I wanna get started with....SJohnson, watch your back...

YahooNews.com: 2nd suit filed in Brandy's fatal crash

Perez Hilton is being sued by Universal City Studios Productions LLLP for allegedly posting a stolen topless photograph of Jennifer Aniston on his site.?
?
They say the picture was "misappropriated and illegally copied" during production or post-production of her 2006 romantic comedy The Break-Up.

The suit seeks an injunction barring further distribution of the picture and requests a court order "directing the U.S. Marshal to seize" the copyrighted material from the gossip blogger. They are demanding a jury trial and monetary damages to be determined by the court.

Whatever.

If you saw the picture, you know the real reason Universal is suing on behalf on Aniston. It's because they don't want her adoring public to see she ain't all that. There, said it!
