One of these things is not like the others,
One of these things just doesn’t belong,
Can you tell which thing is not like the others
By the time I finish my song?
Did you guess which thing was not like the others?
Did you guess which thing just doesn’t belong?
If you guessed that BOTH ARE COMPLETE CRAP,
Then you’re absolutely…right!

OK, Let’s start with the news (from TMZ) that Lindsey Lohan is “In Discussions” for a major role (Not Lois) in the upcoming Superman movie.  Maybe she’ll play Bizarro Supergirl.  Look at the pictures below …

See what I am talking about?  She could totally carry that one through, drunk or not.  This rumor makes as much sense as pushing the elevator button multiple times.  Once it lights up the damn thing is on the way . . . STOP PUSHING THE DAMN BUTTON.

Now let’s move on to the rumor about the city of Detroit putting up a statue of Robocop.  Detroit’s mayor, Dave Bing, had solicited ideas on the Internet for ways to help the revive the city’s image. When the concept of a statue of RoboCop—the hero of Paul Verhoeven’s 1987 sci-fi satire, a police officer brutally gunned down and resurrected as the city’s golem-like protector—was floated via Twitter, Bing shot it down.

“There are not any plans to erect a statue to RoboCop,” Bing wrote on Twitter. “Thank you for your suggestion.”

Mayor Bing is going with the much better suggestion to offer incentives to draw Police officers back into the city, including offering renovated homes in the city for as little as $1,000 down to Detroit officers who now live in the suburbs and elsewhere.  Now that is a great idea.  If the city of Detroit spent money to put up a statue of RoboCop, I would be right there with everyone else that would want to drag any city officials involved into the street and beat the snot out of them while quoting RoboCop movie lines.

You love RoboCop that much, start a fund and put the damn thing up without using any local government funds, better yet, raise those funds to aid a local food kitchen feeding those that need it.
