Random, Bizarre News Story Of The Day: Zsa Zsa's Leg

There's a joke here somewhere but I'm going back to bed, so you're on your own. Or "your own you're on."

Zsa Zsa Gabor To Have Leg Amputated

Zsa Zsa Gabor is to have part of her leg amputated.

The 93-year-old actress was taken to hospital yesterday to the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles to undergo surgery as gangrene was setting in to her right limb.

She developed a lesion on the leg that had swollen a while back and caused her to go to the hospital for treatment, but it has not responded. In fact, it has increased in size, and the doctors have wanted to operate for several days,” said her representative John Blanchette.

“They’re going to have to amputate part of her leg. They said if they didn’t, she could lose her life.”

Although she had been warned to go to hospital earlier, Zsa Zsa had been keen to spend the Christmas and New Year period with her husband Prince Frederic von Anhalt.

“Frederic and Zsa Zsa asked if they could spend New Year’s at home, and they shared champagne and caviar,” John added. “The doctors came to the house today, and when they unwrapped the bandages, they saw that the wound had festered and they were afraid of gangrene developing, which would be life-threatening.”

The Hollywood legend has been in and out of hospital since suffering from two blood clots following hip surgery last July and was last admitted in November after her doctor discovered she had developed a “massive blood clot” in her leg.

Zsa Zsa was initially taken to hospital after falling out of bed following the surgery and at one point, a priest was called in to read the star her last rites.

Second Chance Of The Day

Okay, how cool is this?

From Tom Kane:

A YouTube video about a homeless man with an amazing voice goes viral... A few top VO people and LA TV Producers kick in to high gear. Phone calls are made, camera crews are sent, favors are called in...

And IN LESS THAN 48 HOURS, he goes from an unknown homeless man to someone who touched our hearts, and now has a second chance at a productive life.

Happy New Year, indeed.

And here he is on The CBS Morning News (!) this morning:

I've heard of a bell tree but not a ball tree.

I would say it's his haircut, but that's no secret.

I've had those. They're not good.

It's a big bush.

Is that a wine shop or a pharmacy?

I don't think the secret is back there.

"Time to cum clean," Mom said to 14-year-old Larry. "You made this mess in the sink, didn't you?"
