1. Welcome to the party, pal

    Is Bruce Willis saying he’d live green or die hard? On David Letterman this week, the fourquel star wore a wind turban and recycled-rubber boxers, joked about “global humidity,” and plugged a new film project, An Unappealing Hunch. Uh, what you talkin’ ’bout, Willis?

  2. Pipe dreams

    Don’t be blue on the Danube; sleep easy in a repurposed concrete drain pipe at dasparkhotel, complete with das beds, das pillows, and das skylight. Waltz in any time May-Oktober and pay what you can. Wunderbar!

  3. This job stinks

    Got a sensitive schnoz and a no-care approach to life’s longevity? Join a crew of “professional noses” in southern China, trained to sniff out the difference between a dump and a chemical plant. They love the smell of toxins in the morning!

  4. Putt ‘er there!

    We’ve gotta give kudos to this electric golf cart and its solar-powered comrade for putting the green in, uh, hitting the green. Look for ’em on a low-speed road near you. Fore!

    Carrot Underwood and Kale Eubanks have been voted 2007’s Sexiest Veggies. Runners-up include Kristen Bell Pepper and Jared Lettuce. But poor Cuke Skywalker got totally dissed.
