Blakely is now suing the studios for breach of contract, misappropriation of likeness, and presumably, permanent association with Whoopi Goldberg. When she isn’t singing in habit, Blakely is busy running the Occupy Harlem protests.
Unlike the 500-year-old Vampire Teen of Texas, Madam GropeyFangs hasn't publicly announced herself as a vampire. (She also wears clothes.) But she probably is one, so Denver police are referring to her as the "vampire bandit" until they spot her and her big beverage (Blood in a Can) and capture her.
"We have no pattern of vampires in the area," Denver Police spokesman Sonny Jackson told News 9. "This is highly unusual, highly bizarre." Nevertheless, visitors to Denver convenience stores—particularly the Barn Store, where Monday night's attack took place, and where the alleged vampire lady frequently lurks—should put on a garlic bulb necklace upon entering. If you encounter her in the aisles you could probably grab a garlic-flavoured snack food and fend her off that way, but this method hasn't been tested and might not work if the garlic flavouring is artificial.
The mayor also said the protesters were trying to create a permanent site in the park, and that it was unfair to others who wanted to enjoy that space as a community. Protestors were given two hours notice before the eviction, and police arrested the 14 people who refused to leave.
Halifax is now the second city to evict Occupiers after London, Ont. removed protesters on Wednesday.
Penn State and Nebraska played a football game yesterday, the first since Paterno was fired, and oddly, only one protester showed up—Penn State alum John Matko, who drove to State College from Pittsburgh carrying signs urging the university to follow Paterno's successor Tom Bradley and to cancel the rest of the football season. "The Kids Are What This Day Is About," read one of his signs. Apparently not everyone agreed:
A beer showered Matko. One man slapped his stomach. Another called him a "p–-."
A burly man wearing a "JoePa" T-shirt strode up, wrestled away the sign urging abused kids be put first from Matko's right hand and slammed it to the ground.
"Not now, man," one student said, shaking his head. "This is about the football players."
Now, in Penn State's defense, last night the university held a candlelight vigil attended by as many twice the number of students who rioted on Wednesday. And today was "Blue Out," a child abuse prevention-centered variation on the university's traditional "White Out" event that raised tens of thousands of dollars. Maybe Penn State can spend some of the money it raised on educating its fans?

Celebrating his birthday in style, Dayna McGregor took his goat surfing for the first time in Grover Beach, California.
“She did pretty well,” McGregor said of Goat-ee. “She got up on a couple waves. Got up? We put her on a couple waves and she was pretty successful.”
McGregor told KSBY News (news!) that he had originally purchased the doe to kill weeds but became attached to the animal, and now the two are inseparable.
