This will be the only time Random Humor will comment on the issue between Phil Robertson of Duck Dynasty and A&E. Although we are a site for random humor, celebrity gossip, and random news, we believe there are bigger issues in the world. This response was from a fellow blogger, American Elephant.

In response to: Paul Walker Dies At 40 In Fiery Car Crash
Here at Random Humor, we don’t get the obsession with people’s wanting to be connected to tragedy or death. Paul Walker passed away Saturday afternoon in a fiery car crash. Before his death, his twitter followers rested at a modest following in the low 700,000’s. By 10:45pm EST, his count went to well over 850,000 followers and are still rising.
We hope people know, that by following him after he passed doesn’t mean you are a fan. The fact that you are looking for a connection to him through his death is kind of… well, weird.
We’ve seen this happen time and time again over the last few years. Someone (especially a celebrity) is hurt or tragically dies, and the followers or friend requests come pouring. And it seems to have something to do with wanting a weird connection to a particular tragedy. Here’s a small piece of advice; Don’t pretend to care once someone passes and don’t jump on the bandwagon when a group of people start to make fools of themselves.
“Paul Walker — best known for his role in “The Fast and the Furious” movies — died Saturday afternoon after a single-car accident and explosion in Southern California … TMZ has learned.
The accident happened in Santa Clarita — north of Los Angeles — and according to multiple sources connected to Paul … the actor was in a Porsche when the driver somehow lost control and slammed into a post or a tree … and then the car burst into flames.
Several of our sources — some who are still at the scene of the accident — tell us Paul and another person in the car were killed. Law enforcement is still on the scene, and we’re told the L.A. County Coroner’s Office is on the way.”

As if summer couldn’t get hot enough, we’ve just learned Beyonce is going to be the new face of H&M’s upcoming collection. Beyonce said:
“I’ve always liked H&M’s focus on fun and affordable fashion. I really loved the concept we collaborated on to explore the different emotions of women represented by the four elements—fire, water, earth and wind. It was a beautiful shoot on a tropical island. It felt more like making a video than a commercial.”
I’ve always been a fan of H&M. Maybe I’ll start shopping more now that she’ll be in the stores!
It looks Daniel Craig will be heading back to work early this term! Rumor has it that work will begin on the 24th Bond film as early as next year.
Actor Ben Whishaw spilled the beans that the 007 crew are going to beginning work on the new film. (You know, the new M16’s Q). But if only it was a rumor … Now the MGM Chief Executive Officer, Gary Barber, has confirmed the news by telling investors they’re hoping to have the next Bond film ready in the next three years!
So what was your reaction to Skyfall? And do you think Craig will continue as 007 after 2016, or better yet, who do you think would make an unbelievable bond in the future?
I know you’re trying to hide yourself, but we totally know that’s you Vanessa! The boyfriend, Austin, was the dead giveaway.
Vanessa Hudgens took a little bit of a break from promoting her new film, Spring Breakers, to eat some good ole’ sushi with boyfriend, Austin Butler. Looking forward to seeing this new film! Are you??
Jimmy Fallon is always rockin’ it with musicians. Especially since we’ve seen his latest week with JT. But this time, he took a break from his History Of Raps (newest history of rap with JT – see below..)to create a nice love song with the wonderful Selena Gomez. I don’t know about you, but I grew up playing Mario Kart, so I found this hilarious… Hopefully you will too! Take a look at the vid above.
History Of Rap Part 4!
Could you imagine; all of your friends talking about who’s taking who to the prom, conversation gets around to you and you say, “I’m thinking about taking Kate Upton!” Of course, their response immediately would be to laugh it off as a great joke. But not for this kid! Jake Davidson, a Los Angeles senior posted a video on YouTube asking Kate to go to prom with him. He says:
“I’m Jewish, 5’9″ on a really good day and I can’t dance at all,” Davidson says, offering the date. “You’re Christian, 5’10” and that Cat Daddyvideo should’ve won an Oscar for Best Short Film. You could say this is destiny.”
Kind of funny, but now that the video has over 100,000 views, it’s starting to get some attention! She even tweeted back saying:
“You can call me Katie if you want! How could I turn down that video! I’ll check my schedule ;)”
Lucky guy! Or do you think she’s just helping him push the publicity a bit? What do you think?!
Holy frickin’ crap! Michael Jackson’s three kids and his mom want over $40 billion from AEG Live for Jackson’s death.
Legal documents claim that the three kids, Prince, Paris and Blanket and Jackson’s mom, Katherine are taking legal action against the entertainment company for its ill-perceived and negligent hiring (as TMZ states it) of Dr. Conrad Murray.
In these documents, the kids claim they want $10 billion for the future earnings Jackson would have made if he was still living. They said they would also like an additional $50 million for various other damages.
AEG Live claims that the $40 billion request is crazy talk (our words) since Jackson’s career was on a downward spiral. It had been going downhill since the alleged child molestation charges as well as his self-imposed exile to the Middle East. They say the damage charges are based on speculation.
Do you think the kids and mom deserve the money? If not, how much should they get?
