Having never been nominated for an Oscar, Scarlett Johansson, in a recent interview with Stuff That Doesn’t Matter magazine, spoke about her plans to take on more challenging roles in order to expand her body of work, and possibly appeal to The Academy.
When asked what role she would now predominately seek out, she said, “An ugly person. Or, maybe just someone who’s slightly less cute than the rest of the characters in the film. Hell, I’d even do a scene where I had to wear an ill-fitting sweatshirt if it meant serious consideration from The Academy.”
But this wouldn’t be Scarlett’s first time attempting to broaden her work. In 2006, she starred in Woody Allen’s comedy “Scoop”, where she played a journalism student investigating a murder with the help of a ghost. Looking back, she recalled, “I really thought I was a shoe-in for an Oscar nomination. I was working with an Oscar winning director, a great cast, ghosts and I even wore glasses to look bookish and disarmingly awkward, yet intelligent and approachable. Sometimes actors just need to make bold artistic choices.”
But in hindsight, it seems the glasses may not have been enough. She continued, “…but I guess there still was that whole red bathing suit scene. Damn I looked good, probably too good. I knew that would come back to haunt me!”
She went on to say that despite this, she’s not one to have regrets, and is looking forward to her future work. When asked if she would consider shaving her head for a role, or if she’d play someone handicapped, she replied, “The script would have to be really solid. Like, there’d have to be at least 7 or 8 tracking shots of my ass.”

This week, in the wake of the Manti Te’o fake girlfriend scandal, local nerd Brian felt he too should finally come clean about his 15 year relationship with a “Niagara-Falls-area” girl.
“It’s just something you say so people don’t think you’re a loser, ya know?,” Brian explained fighting back tears, “but then the lie grows, and before you know it I had created this whole backstory about this pretty girl named Cecily, who had red hair and loved waterfalls. Hell, I even started to believe it a little. Truth be told, I’ve never even been to Niagara Falls. I’ve never even talked to a girl. Like ever.”
But Brian’s admission has been met with little or no reaction from his family and peers, much to Brian’s chagrin. “Yea, nobody even cares. Sure they think I’m a loser, but they thought that anyway. I guess you gotta be a jock for anyone to really give a crap. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m meeting up with some friends. We’re going to this huge party that’s supposed to have some cute girls. I’m gonna try to get over my shyness. Hello new me!”
Unbeknownst to Brian, we followed him home that night and quickly learned that when he said he was “…going to a party with friends and cute girls”, what he really meant was “sitting on his couch watching anime porn with various collectible action figures.”

It was confirmed yesterday that the 7 people who disliked the above “Soldiers Reunited with Family” video were all riding on the same bus to Washington, DC when it veered off the road into a deep polluted lake.
Everyone on the bus, including the driver, who disliked the above video just two weeks ago, has been declared officially “missing” since the accident Wednesday. Police have put off the search, stating that “…they’ll get to it when they get to it”, unless family of the victims, or some other concerned parties, pressure them to start the search sooner. So far no one has come forward.
Investigators acknowledge the coincidental nature of all 7 strangers being on the same bus, but authorities feel it was for the best and that they probably shouldn’t question it.
People who knew the missing bus riders described them with such phrases as “unpleasant to be around” and “quite shitty” adding “forever negative, worthless, attention-starved masturbation machines” and also that “[they] served no real purpose in the grand scheme of human existence, and if anything, took away from it”.
The accident, caught on tape and uploaded to Youtube, has since gone viral and received 3,455 likes, and ZERO dislikes.
