Several media outlets have identified the doctor who was performing the biopsy that may have led to JOAN RIVERS’ death . . . and even though we’ve been referring to him as a HE, he’s actually a SHE.

A lot of YouTube celebrities start making hundreds of thousands of dollars by the time they’re 18 or 19.  But here’s an even MORE extreme example of how you can hit it big super early being a YouTuber.

Did Joan Rivers’ Doctor Take a Selfie While She Was Under Anesthesia? 

We’ve already heard that JOAN RIVERS’ doctor may have performed an unauthorized biopsy . . . one that ultimately killed her.  But here’s something we DIDN’T know.

According to CNN, before he did the operation, he TOOK A SELFIE with her while she was under the gas.

Dr. Lawrence Cohen performed the endoscopy.  But when he was done, an ear, nose and throat doctor Joan had brought with her decided that he wanted to do a biopsy.

Not only was Joan’s doctor not licensed to perform a biopsy at the clinic, but Joan never signed a consent form to have one in the first place.

The fallout continues.


Rihanna Wasn’t Happy That CBS Dropped Her Song from “Thursday Night Football”

RIHANNA is NOT happy with CBS for dropping her song from “Thursday Night Football” . . . apparently because she’s a high-profile victim of domestic abuse, and the NFL is in the middle of the RAY RICE scandal.

Rihanna didn’t say anything at the time, but when she heard that the producers wanted to bring it back tomorrow night, she FLIPPED OUT.

She Tweeted, quote, “CBS, you pulled my song last week.  Now you want to slide it back in this Thursday?  No.  Y’all are sad for penalizing me for this . . . the audacity.”

CBS claims that they’ve decided to go in a “different direction,” but Rihanna’s label, Roc Nation, issued a statement saying that they’re the ones who broke it off.


Quick note:  Despite the controversy surrounding the NFL right now, we are obsessed with it on TV.  “Sunday Night Football” was the most-watched show of the week.  The Bears-49ers game attracted 22.2 million viewers.  It was closely followed in the ratings by the Ravens-Steelers “Thursday Night Football” game, which had 20.8 million.

The grounds include a lagoon-style swimming pool with a grotto connected by an underwater swimming tunnel, which sounds pretty sweet.

This is straight out of a movie.  Literally.

They started talking on Twitter, and tracked down a THIRD woman he was dating.

Charlie was on vacation in Germany the entire time, and the women decided that would be a great time to get revenge.  So when he got through customs and walked out of the airport, all THREE of his girlfriends were there waiting for him.

Apparently he was shocked, so he ran to the parking lot where his grandma was waiting to pick him up.


Frisbee-9W2A Wanted Fugitive Is Arrested When Cops Spot Him Playing in an Ultimate Frisbee Tournament

This is just about the most “Oregon” way you could possibly get arrested.

31-year-old Jahson Marryshow of Eugene, Oregon robbed a bank in 2010 . . . then stole a car to get away from the cops trying to arrest him.  He’s been a wanted fugitive ever since.

And he was finally caught on Sunday when the cops found him doing what people in Oregon do . . . he was playing in an ULTIMATE FRISBEE tournament.

And when they spotted him at the Ultimate Frisbee tournament, they figured it was a great time to arrest him since he probably wasn’t armed.

He’s in jail now.

A Leopard Is Terrorizing People Who Stumble Home Drunk in Northeast India

Here’s a travel advisory in case you have a trip scheduled to northeast India this week.  You probably don’t and that’s good!

Apparently, there’s a LEOPARD on the prowl and terrorizing people there.  The leopard has already attacked THIRTEEN people as they were walking home from bars and restaurants.

Forest rangers say it’s clear he’s got a taste for humans and people who’ve had too much to drink and are stumbling are easier targets.

They believe he used to eat DOGS . . . but there are fewer wild dogs around now, so the leopard has transitioned to humans.

They’ve gone out hunting for him three times but haven’t been able to catch him.


too smartA Drug Dealer Tells a Customer He’s “Too Smart” to Get Caught . . . and the Customer Is an Undercover Cop

There’s nothing as perfect as a Stupid Criminal who THINKS he’s a genius criminal . . . and that’s EXACTLY what we’ve got here.

45-year-old Adalberto Ramiro-diaz of Port St. Lucie, Florida has been running a pretty massive drug dealing operation out of his house.

At one point recently, a customer was over at his house looking at his massive stash of drugs and guns, and asked him how he’d never been caught.  And Adalberto told him he was TOO SMART to get caught.

But the customer he told that to was . . . an undercover cop.

Stupid Criminals!!!!

The cops arrested him last week on a ton of drug and weapons charges.  They also found a fake FBI badge in his house during their search.


A Vet Performed a Life-Saving Operation on a Goldfish

We do a LOT for our pets.  But do FISH count?

Last week, a couple in Melbourne, Australia noticed their pet goldfish George was having trouble breathing.

Now, George is ten years old.  So you’d THINK their first instinct would be to make sure the TOILET was working properly . . . because that’s probably where most people would send him.

Instead, they took him to the VET.  He saw that George had a massive TUMOR on one of his gills.  And I mean it was about the size of a grape.  For a three-ounce goldfish, that’s pretty big.

And he told George’s owners that it would be risky . . . but for $200, he could try to perform a potentially life-saving operation and REMOVE the tumor.  And they went for it.

We’re happy to report that the 45-minute surgery was a complete success.

George is now back home in his tank recovering.

A Cat Jumped From the 17th Floor and Survived

On Sunday, Joel Isfeld of Vancouver noticed his eight-month-old cat, Cleo, had gotten out onto his balcony.  Before he could grab her, Cleo JUMPED.  Unfortunately, Joel lives on the 17TH FLOOR of his apartment building.  Obviously Joel assumed the worst, but when he ran downstairs he couldn’t find her body.

Then around 10:00 P.M. the next night, Joel got a call from the security guard, who told him someone had found Cleo . . . ALIVE.  She was hiding in a courtyard on the ninth floor, which is weird, because the courtyard isn’t even below Joel’s apartment.

Meaning Cleo fell at least EIGHT STORIES, and survived.  Or she fell farther than that, and somehow climbed back up, then made it to the courtyard.  Whatever happened, the only injury she had was a scratch on her face.

Woman Surprised To Find A Dead Body In Her Trunk

A California woman says she has no idea how a dead body wound up in the trunk of her Lexus.

The Riverside woman says she’d thought the car smelled funny as she left work, but she stopped at Wal-Mart thinking nothing of it.

When she opened the trunk to put her shopping bags inside, she made the gruesome discovery.

“She was freaking out,” one witness says. “They had to put her in a squad car and take her home.”

Witnesses say the woman recognized the man as a neighbor. Police initially considered the woman a person of interest and questioned her, but now say she isn’t a suspect.

The tiny borough of 650 residents bought a fire truck but hasn’t been able to scrape enough money to pay for it.

So the fire chief and the City Council president dreamed up the idea of selling advertising space on the fire truck. So far, no one has signed on.

Paris Hilton Apparently Shelled Out $13,000 for a Dog That Could Fit in the Palm of Her Hand   

PARIS HILTON just “ordered” a tiny, white Pomeranian puppy named Mr. Amazing.  The puppy is four-and-a-half months old and stands just over an inch tall.

He appears to be the length of a pair of sunglasses . . . and is only expected to weigh TWO POUNDS at the most when he’s fully-grown.

It’s unclear how much Paris paid, but the business that sells these dogs says it’s worth $13,000.

Sadly, the name Mr. Amazing might not stick.  Paris posted some photos of the puppy on Instagram, and asked her followers what she should name him.

The medical director of the facility where Joan Rivers went into cardiac arrest during a routine procedure has been fired!

A spokeswoman for Yorkville Endoscopy did not elaborate on the circumstances of his departure, however, TMZ reports that the board fired him in the wake of Rivers’ death.

It was during that biopsy that Rivers stopped breathing.  The state health department has said it’s investigating “the whole matter.”


Thanks to Kanye West, Two People in Wheelchairs at His Concert Were Booed 

Thanks to KANYE WEST, two people in wheelchairs got BOOED during his show Friday night in Sydney, Australia.  It was actually a misunderstanding, but it was the kind only Kanye could cause.

You see, Kanye decided that he wasn’t going to continue the show until everyone in the arena STOOD UP.  And when he saw two people still not standing, he refused to go on.

Of course, those two people were in wheelchairs and COULDN’T stand up.  But Kanye had to make SURE they were disabled and not just refusing his demand.

The whole process took several very awkward minutes, during which the crowd started booing and chanting “Stand up!”  When Kanye was convinced the people really were handicapped, he went on with the show.

A Woman’s Luggage Got Damaged, So the Airport Gave Her a Replacement Bag . . . Filled with Plastic Explosives

A woman landed at the airport in Sydney, Australia on Tuesday, and found out her luggage had been damaged.

So to help her get where she was going, the airport gave her an unclaimed suitcase as a replacement bag . . . filled with PLASTIC EXPLOSIVES.

A month earlier, airport police had used the suitcase to train bomb-sniffing dogs.  But the cop in charge forgot to take out the explosives.

The woman eventually found them, but not until she got to the city of Newcastle, about 95 miles north of Sydney.  At that point, she took the bag straight to her local police department, which had to be EVACUATED.

In the end, it turned out the plastic explosives weren’t actually armed.  So no one was in any real danger.
