Kanye West Thinks He's Got a Dangerous Job
The world sort of already views most famous people as undeserving of their absurd riches and not being "one of us," but Kanye West has now taken this to a whole new extreme by claiming that, since he's got such occupational hazards as slipping on stage, his line of work is clearly on par with that of police and military.

"The drop crotch pants are tactical. Why else would I wear them in public?"
His life clearly on the line, West has been called out by actual police officers and military support groups that think he wouldn't be able to last a day in the military. He's been issued challenges to go and enlist himself, so in a way they're telling him to die. But ... but Kanye does get shot at every day! By, umm, cameras, and, uh, the disgusted glares of people with a sense of decency!
Rob Ford Thinks His Loss of Mayoral Power Is Like Saddam Hussein Invading Kuwait
The mayor of Toronto who got caught doing crack is starting to pay the price. His city council recently voted to strip him of nearly all of his mayorly powers and give them to a deputy mayor. As a guy who does crack, naturally Ford got a little spazzy at this news, charging around the room and knocking over another council member.
He's a much more graceful dancer.
But while he was plowing around like a rhino, he spat out some nonsense from his mouth, too. Ford called the stripping of his powers a "coup d'etat" and said that their attack on him was like the invasion of Kuwait. He might want to be careful with that type of analogy in the future, as Kuwait isn't exactly a model of peace and stability right now.
