Don’t hassle the Hoff

This is the funniest thing I’ve read in a while:

David Hasselhoff refused to work with Gary Busey on ‘Piranha 3DD’
May 30, 2012, 5:59 PM EST

The former “Baywatch” star, who plays himself in the fishy sequel, signed on for the movie only if producers could keep him and Gary Busey apart during filming.

He tells Chelsea Handler on her show “Chelsea Lately,” “I run from him. I made a pact in my contract I wouldn’t have to be in the same room as Gary Busey. He’s really an entertaining person, but he’s a little scary.”

And there was a young star whom Hasselhoff hated working with because he couldn’t pronounce “piranha” correctly.

The TV icon explains, “There’s a little ginger moron in this movie … this little redhead kid, and he kept saying ‘pir-anna,’ and it’s ‘piranha,’ and it was driving me nuts. The good thing at the end of the movie … the piranhas get the kid.”

Simpsons’ Mystery Solved

Springfield

A decades old mystery has finally been solved: where is Springfield, home of the Simspsons?

The admission came in an interview with Smithsonian Magazine that was published online Tuesday.

Groening says he was inspired by the televisions show “Father Knows Best,” which took place in a place called Springfield. Springfield, Ore., is 100 miles south of Groening’s hometown of Portland.

Groening says he has long given fake answers when asked about the Simpsons’ hometown.

So there you have it! Of course that means that lamer Shelbyville is ALSO in Oregon, right?
