    That’s quite the fall! How much you wanna bet he was completely baked? Accidents like this happen too often as it is, without adding alcohol or drugs to the mix. I think he should be thanking his lucky stars that he didn’t die…otherwise they’d do a toxicology report on him and give the public quite a list of everything he’s been putting in his body.

    Btw, he’s really creepy looking in this pic.

    Tributegirl: Beginning is good, ending is good, the middle (her heaven) is weird. Have you seen The Hangover yet? Now THAT was a pretty good movie…funny as h#ll!

    NO! Not yet! But thanks for the reminder, I think I’ll rent that this weekend.
