Tummy trouble

Tummy trouble

Teen heartthrob Justin Bieber became sick to his stomach and vomited twice during a show Saturday in a Phoenix, Ariz., suburb.

Ironically, the parents forced to accompany their squealing ‘tween girls to the sold-out show felt like tossing their cookies, too.

C’mon get happy: Seattle radio deejay and onetime teen heartthrob Danny Bonaduce says what seemed like a friendly kiss from a female fan turned into something else entirely when the woman bit his cheek.

Now that his upset stomach has cleared up, Justin Bieber can make himself ill all over again by thinking about what’s in store for him 35 years down the road.

I believe Miracle Whip would be more appropriate: The assumption that everyone eats dinner in front of the TV inspired some menus based on some currently popular shows. Sample menu item: opposum on white bread with mayonnaise for the trailer-trash reality show, “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.”

If you can’t lay your hands on some ‘possum meat (just keep an eye on the roadside), you can replicate the experience with a dose of syrup of ipecac.
