Explanation: The brightest comet in decades is unexpectedly now visible. The most optimistic predictions have Comet McNaught (C/2006 P1) shortly becoming one of the brightest comets of the past century. For the next few days, its short tail and bright coma can be spotted with the unaided eye close to the Sun and near the horizon in both evening and morning skies. This dramatic picture of the comet shining through cloudy skies was taken near sunset on January 7 from Bad Mergentheim, Germany.

Christmas Divorce for Dita von Teese and Marilyn Manson - Music News - - Fun & Entertainment

Dita von Teese Files for Manson Divorce

What seemed like a feasible marriage between rocker Marilyn Manson and burlesque dancer Dita von Teese is now ending as Dita has filed for divorce.
Dita von Teese

The two were together as a couple for seven years when they finally married in December 2005. After one single year of marriage, Dita von Teese filed for divorce before Christmas, citing “irreconcilable differences”.

Dita, whose real name is Heather Renee Sweet, is a star in her own right as a model and burlesque dancer. She reportedly split up with Marilyn Manson on Christmas Eve.

The two married on December 3, 2005, at Gurteen Castle in Kilsheelan. Dita famously wore a purple dress custom-made by Vivienne Westwood and a tri-corned hat. It appears the goth rocker had been a fan of hers for a long time before they became a couple.

Hitherby Dragons

Dude, It's Like A Chocolate Buddha

I like alot of “dude” sayings, really. Dude is like, the buddha of the modern age. You know it’s true! dudette
– GoldenH

I can see it.

He’s down at the Dude Ranch, which is where they farm free-range Buddhas—

Because you do not want a factory farm Buddha—

And he’s leaning back with his eyes sort of closed and he’s got fringed pants on and a cowboy hat and he’s tall as your thumb. And he’s strumming on his zither, the way little Buddha dudes do, and he’s saying this:

“I will tell you the noble truth of suffering.
It comes from clinging.
You don’t let things go.”

And the farmers say, “That’ll do, little dude. That’ll do.”

Then the Little Buddha Hook comes along. It catches him up humanely. It dips him in chocolate. It puts him in the box. It ships him to a supermarket.

It can’t ship him to a submarket.

The sea’s in the way!

So it ships him to a supermarket—to a supermarket near you.

And you can go there, if you like, and if you do, you’ll find the dude.

You’ll find him there, the dude, the dude in the Buddha box, the Buddha of the ranch. And you’ll be all like, “Dude! You’re a tiny Buddha coated in dark chocolate!”

And he’ll be all, “Sweet.”

It is ironic that they add preservatives.
