Shocked! Shocked, I tell you!

Winning! Angus T. Jones, the “Half” in “Two and a Half Men,” says in a video posted on a church’s website that his show is “filth” and he doesn’t want people to watch it. The series, in its 10th season, survived the raucous departure of series star Charlie Sheen, his character killed off by its producers because of Sheen’s “moral turpitude.”

Sheen, hearing his young former co-star’s condemnation of the series, begged to be allowed to come back.

Snowbird! Justin Bieber, teen heart-throb and former Breck Girl, was booed during his halftime performance for Canada’s Grey Cup football championship on Sunday, apparently failing to connect with Canadian football fans.

It’s got to be a tough crowd. Considering that Canadians are still without the National Hockey League, not even Anne Murray was going to make them happy.

Careful of that door: Nearly 1 million U.S. citizens, unhappy with the results of the presidential election, have signed online petitions to the Obama administration to allow their states to secede. One legal scholar says the Constitution already provides an individual the ability to secede by emigration. “They can move to Canada,” he suggests.

The bad news for Americans moving to Canada? They have socialized medicine. The good news? You’re free to boo Justin Bieber there.
