From the RSS feed for Reuters blogs, an interesting tidbit that can no longer be found online about the premiere for Jackass Number Two:
Yellow Puddle on the Red Carpet
No, you're not imagining things. This guy is actually stopping to relieve himself on the red carpet, on the way in to the world premiere of his new movie. Because who knows if they have indoor toilets at a theater like that? Better safe than sorry. You think in 30 years he'll be the next Olivier? No, I don't either.
Public urination certainly seems newsworthy to us! So why'd the news organization pull the story? Perhaps it was the NSFW, bone-chilling visual that accompanied the item. If your stomach is strong, we'll happily provide:

For what it's worth, the Times DID deem the movie to bear "some of the most fearless, liberated and cathartic comedy in modern movies." C'mon, Reuters — what's your problem?
