Mel Gibson disgraced himself last year with all those foul rants, which didn't exactly endear him to the moviegoing public.

Social and economic turmoil? Don't ask. At least we had Lady Gaga to tell us what to do.
1) Mel Gibson. Mel's onslaught of hate was horrific, though it actually did his career credibility some good when it got him bumped from The Hangover II. 2) Carl Paladino. He's still pulling his foot out of his ass over those gay remarks--but not that quickly.
The trailer for Mel Gibson's comeback film The Beaver, in which he's a disturbed man who lets a beaver hand puppet speak for him, is a masterpiece of unintentional guffaws for those with really cheap and obvious minds.

Let's get a jump on all the year-end pieces that will surely be heading this way (from myself, for example) and crown the biggest douche of the year so far. Was it mouthy Mel Gibson for spewing even more hatred than critics leveled at Air America?
Beleaguered douche Mel Gibson was going to get a career break via a cameo role in The Hangover II, which certainly made sense because that particular franchise is about emotionally stunted men misbehaving in horrendous ways. But as you may have heard, the cast and crew revolted (or were revo ... More >>

I clearly resemble an owl. Enough people have said that, so I simply have to embrace the comparison and make it into a positive thing, kvelling over all the wisdom and potato-chips-inspiring that owls exude. So what about you?

In the good old days, we used to gossip about actors, singers, and athletes--people who actually did something.

As each new tape emerges of Mel Gibson's vicious ranting and unruly behavior, it seems like the only hope Mel has of a career is to package them all as a boxed set. Still, I'd say he could have a future despite it all, mainly because:

Actually, we're not even sure Mel Gibson is human. In this rant upon poor Oksana Grigorieva that Radar Online has obtained "exclusively," he's oddly robotic, repetitive, and pretty much completely psychotic-sounding.
