FDA widens peanut butter warning. "All Peter Pan peanut butter bought since May 2006 should be discarded, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration said on Friday in a statement broadening its warning about salmonella-contaminated peanut butter."
Report: Prince Harry to be deployed in Iraq. "The 22-year-old prince, known as Troop Commander Wales by his regiment -- the Blues and Royals -- has trained to command 11 soldiers and four Scimitar tanks. The Defense Ministry has previously confirmed Harry could go to Iraq if his unit was deployed there, but said he might be kept out of situations where his presence would jeopardize his comrades. Harry, who graduated last year from Royal Military Academy Sandhurst, said in a 2005 interview that he was keen to fight for his country. 'There's no way I'm going to put myself through Sandhurst and then sit on my arse back home while my boys are out fighting for their country,' he said." I have a horrible, horrible feeling about how this is going to end.
Britney goes to rehab, checks out a day later; bald Britney Spears sits for new ink at California tattoo parlor. "Angelique Uram, a Spears fan who stood on the tattoo parlor's sidewalk for Friday night's spectacle, was aghast at the singer's new look. 'We could see her in the mirror, and her head is completely shaved,' she told KABC. 'It looks terrible.' "
Smith willed estate to son, now dead. " 'I have intentionally omitted to provide for my spouse and other heirs, including future spouses and children and other descendants now living and those hereafter born or adopted,' Smith said in the will." Well, brilliant.

Early reviews of Equus good; Radcakes receives standing ovation. (Oh dear. Is that Will Kemp, then?) Also: "Roger Berlind, a veteran New York theatre producer, said that if the production with Radcliffe and his fellow leading man, Richard Griffiths, wanted to move to Broadway, he would help raise the finance to present it." Meanwhile, Richard Griffiths on Equus and Uncle Vernon "the shivering idiot." Includes link to new promotional Equus shot of what can only be described as Harry Potter's Lily-White Ass. Reflective lenses may be required for your protection.

Mummy 3 news: The son character is now in his "late teens/early twenties." The weaponry involved "set[s] the story prior to 1947, and after 1938 since it includes the Walther P-38." "Also, Jet Li will be the head Mummy in a group of Mummies that were the Teracotta army." It's in my nature to be snarky and dismissive at this kind of news, but... how much worse could it be than the Scorpion King in the sequel, seriously?
People are putting a little too much thought into the Ralph Fiennes airplane sex story. For some reason, my first reaction was, "She turned him down? Aww, now I just feel sorry for him."
(Or did she?)
There's a Joe Rogan vs. Carlos Mencia feud, and Rogan is losing: "Back on Wednesday, we passed along a video of comedian and Fear Factor [host] Joe Rogan confronting Carlos 'Mind Of' Mencia about the widely held belief that Mencia helps himself to other comics' material (which, to his credit, he at least has to courtesy to transform into something completely unfunny). Since the release of comedy repo man Rogan's whistleblowing exposé, it seems the fight has been pretty lopsided in Mencia's favor, as Rogan blogs that he's been given a time out at the Comedy Store (the site of the confrontation) and lost an agent over the brawl."
