    Thanks, Manolo. Now “What is Love?” will be in my head ALL DAY.

    I am so sick to death of Tom Cruise! Please make him go away!

    Seriously. At first glance, I thought this was a photo of Al Pacino having some sort of seizure. I agree with Gigi — please, God, make Tom and Katie GO AWAY!!

    I thought I couldn’t dislike Tom any more, until I heard that “silent birth” crap. The ultimate in bullying is telling your wife how she is permitted to behave while undergoing the painful struggle of childbirth.

    The friends of the Manolo are wise indeed. It is beyond time for the Cruise to PLEASE. GO. NOW.

    If she wasn’t a lady, AskMom could suggest that Cruise experience something akin to labor and childbirth before he be allowed to micromanage the process for someone else. AskMom could talk about watermelons and anatomy, but she has grandchildren to cuddle and leaves her suggestion to the imagination of the friends.

    Ann and AskMom-

    I can’t be SURE about this, but I read in an article about silent birth (and Tom Cruise) that the idea is not for the mother to be silent, but rather the doctors and other attendants. Cruise has said in numerous reports that as far as he is concerned, Katie can make all the noise she wants and get all the medication she wants.

    I’m not saying that I love Tom Cruise or anything — I’m sick of all the shtick also, and think Scientology is strange, especially Cruise saying that anti-depressants are bad — but I want to make sure that if we hate him, we hate him for something that’s actually true.

    Cruise, his business is not so risky anymore.

    Is this the after effect of eating the placenta?

    The observers behind the Tom are all, “Isn’t that nice brain-damaged little man cute!”

    Mr. Cruise is fast becoming Michael Jackson without the scary plastic surgery.

    “My brain?” says Mr. Cruise. “It is only this big.”

    Hey, Never teh Bride, I think you misspelled “penis” …

    Please, the Manolo he is the jazz player, and the Cruise riff, it is mellow. Is it my imagination, or does Tom have really small hands? Is that why he developed the death grip, to compensate for tiny hands? And what about his shoe size? Surely the Manolo must know this.

    The Fausta, she remembers the Tom Cruise before he had the plucking of the eyebrows done.

  16. pbird April 26, 2006 at 9:50 am #

    Don’t you guys think he looks just like Speed Racer of early cartoon fame???

  17. Gigi April 26, 2006 at 2:01 pm #

    pbird, you are so astute! If only he’d get in his Mach 5 and drive away forever…

    The picture on the left could well be captioned: “Why Tom Cruise will never work with Jonathan Rhys Meyers again.”
