Hey, Michael Vick: TheFeed knows that you're feeling down and all after your incident in Miami last week. So, to help you get over it and back to the very serious business of coach-killing, we're going to pass along this story of an even more bone-headed air travel stunt pulled by an Australian ass-clown at Melbourne's airport.

Reports say that Allen Jasson is shocked and chagrined and considering taking legal action against Qantas airlines because the airline would not allow him to board a flight from Melbourne to London while wearing his hip, stylish "George W. Bush # 1 Terrorist" T-shirt.

Even better: the likely descendant of criminals had already been denied the right to board a domestic flight days earlier for wearing the very same shirt.

Jay-Z Goes To The Dogs


Posted January 16, 2007 - By Frank Meyer

According to an investigation by The Humane Society of the United States, the Hunter jacket on Jay-Z's Rocawear.com clothing site allegedly has dog fur in its collar, even though it's advertised as having fake fur.


Yup, they say the $265 item contains real fur from a raccoon dog, a dog indigenous to Asia that The Humane Society claims are skinned alive for the coats. And they ain't happy about it.

Late last year, a similar investigation found that raccoon dog fur was being used in a coat in P. Diddy's Sean John collection.

Ironically, neither Snoop Dog nor DMX's clothing line have been accused of using real dog fur, despite both rapper's love for and allegiance to of canines.

Posted January 11, 2007 - By Frank Meyer

Riverbank Unified School District board members voted unanimously on January 9 to ban clothing bearing the MC's image or brand name at the district's high school, Riverbank High.

Mac Dre's clothing was added to a long list of banned names and labels that the school district prohibits from the dress code.

Paris Hilton: Not Guilty?


Posted January 11, 2007 - By Frank Meyer

It's Paris' world and we all just live in it...

The famed Hilton heiress, who just tied with Britney Spears for the No. 1 spot on Mr. Blackwell's 47th annual "Worst Dressed" list, pleaded innocent to drunk driving on Tuesday after she was arrested in September in Hollywood while getting a late-night hamburger.

Hilton did not attend the brief hearing in Los Angeles Superior Court at which her attorney, Shawn Chapman Holley, entered the not guilty plea. Of course not. She was busy dressing like a deaf, dumb, blind whore...

Tattoo Ain't For Life...Finally


Posted December 27, 2006 - By JLawson

While most of you who have tattoos actually walked into a parlor for a piece of artwork you wanted to?stay with you for the rest of your life, there are probably a couple of you who didn't. Are you really trying to tell me that you meant to get that tattoo of a kitty cat emblazoned on your bicep for all to see? Uh yeah, I wasn't referring to that kind of cat...get your mind out of the gutter!

For those that made that drunken mistake or are haunted by the initials of that one night stand, it may be too late for you, but don't worry, if it happens again you can get rid of it.

If McDonald's has its way, soon many Americans won't be able to fit through the Golden Arches.

Around the country, state goverments are starting to ban trans-fats, the kind of fat found in fast food that is the most harmful to humans. This is a huge change considering that most of the industry's most beloved recipies rely on this type of fat for its pattented flavor. McDonald's is looking for any loophole that might let them get around the bans, while trying to test out trans-fat free recipies.

Why not just modify the recipe to make it safer for human consuption? McDonald's thinks Americans will demand a tasty french fry filled with harmful fat.

I'm waiting for the day when they have to make doorways bigger to accomodate the massive globs of uselessness people will become.?And the day when the term "trans-fat" refers to?airplane travel. ?

Unfortunately the following did not make the list:
*Don't carry a Chicago Cubs mug or else you'll risk getting shot in the neck.
*I'm sorry I say "DROP YOUR WEAPONS!!!" so much.
*Kim took mostly after my wife.
*Zombie George Mason is chained up in my basement.

Posted December 8, 2006 - By Frank Meyer

Hey, does your mom cavort around town without panties? Didn't think so...

But mother Britney Spears likes to do just that and California social services ain't too keen on it. Might not be a good example for the kids, they think.

Oooooh, busted!!!!

Tommy Lee is introducing children's gear to his TL for PL limited edition clothing line.

"I love kids and that would be kind of fun," says Lee. "That's something that we'd have to sit down and play with. I'm a big fan of women's shoes as well, but that's a whole other story."


The collection is inspired by his tattoos and includes jeans, t-shirts, hats, and hoodies. The line helps raise money for one of Lee's favorite charities, People's Liberation.

"I lost count a long time ago of how many I have," Lee says of his tattoos. "They're all beautiful things. I love animals, and so there is everything from koi fish to leopards. There are cherry blossoms. I love flowers. There are dragons. There is fire and water. These are things that I will always love to look at, and hopefully people will love to wear."?

I love cherryblossoms and flowers too...for the record.?

I am going to fly out to England, shoot heroin,?get in a few fist fights, and get busted for possession just to prove that those silly UK cops will indeed arrest my ass and sentence me to prison time, and that Pete Doherty is indeed getting special treatment for whatever bizarre reason.

I mean, do they love celebrities that much over there that you can literally do anything and get arrested a hundred times and still avoid going to the clink? ?Cause that's sure what it seems like when you hear that the Babyshambles frontman and boyfriend of Kate Moss just got off for possession of drugs including heroin and crack cocaine yet again.

The rocker was arrested in April for possession of less than 2 grams each of heroin, cannabis and cocaine, just three hours after he was sentenced to two years of community service for previous drug offenses.
