As we careen into Day 2 of The Runnin’ Scared Mel Gibson Crossword Puzzle Competition — where you could win whatever Mel Gibson DVD you want — so far, the competition has been stiff! So has the back of Mel Gibson’s hand on his child, apparently!
We’ve received numerous emails asking for tips and the like. Well, here’s the first one: Don’t beat your infant children, especially if your lady is bound to record your insane phone calls. Which is what happened to Mel Gibson. Via Radar Online, who has a direct pipeline to this news:
“You hit me, and you hit her (Lucia) while she was in my hands! Mel, you’re losing your mind. You need medication,” [Gibson’s wife Oksana Grigorieva] tells him on the newly released tape.
And Mel, raging at Oksana, is caught on audio telling her: “I want my child, and no one will believe you.”
Maybe not if there wasn’t audio, which there is.
If there weren’t audio, though? Well, given Mel’s past transgressions, an interested public probably wouldn’t put it past him. And given his current transgressions, if Grigorieva accused Mel Gibson of indulging his goat-rapist whims sometime after he caused the Deepwater Horizon spill, yes, most people would believe her. But that has yet to happen.
You know what else has yet to happen? A winner emerging for our contest! If you need a better tip than “Don’t beat your children,” well, here are a few:
