TOM Cruise yesterday revealed his latest bizarre mission..to eat his new baby's placenta.
Cruise vowed he would tuck in straight after girlfriend Katie Holmes gives birth, saying he thought it would be "very nutritious".
The Mission Impossible star, 43, said: "I'm gonna eat the placenta. I thought that would be good. Very nutritious. I'm gonna eat the cord and the placenta right there." It is the latest in a series of increasingly strange outbursts from Cruise in the run-up to the birth.
The actor, who recently also claimed he has the power to cure drug addicts, has even been carrying out his own medical scans on the fetus after buying himself an ultrasound machine.
Silent birth is one of the rules of the cult of Scientology, which Cruise is devoted to.
The cult - founded by the late sci-fi writer L Ron Hubbard - claims that 75 million years ago aliens came to earth and their spirits now infest our bodies.
Cruise told GQ magazine Hubbard had discovered making a noise had a "negative spiritual effect" on someone giving birth. He insisted that 27-year-old Katie would be allowed to scream, adding cryptically: "It is really about respecting the woman. It's not about her screaming.
"And scientifically it is proven. Now there are medical research papers that say when a woman's giving birth everyone should be quiet."
ok, lets just assume he meant that he wanted to eat some "corn and polenta" and not the cord and placenta. he was misquoted. to assume otherwise would be admitting hes just plain "batshit crazy". ok, i was just joking...hes batshit crazy. there is some really funny stuff in this article not the least of which is the refering to scientology as a cult. sure its a cult but not any more than catholicism or judaism or......well you see where i'm going. thank god this kids parents are wealthier than god because the kid stands no chance at all of being normal. tom is screwed up and he found scientology later in life. imagine what that will do to a kid whos indoctrinated from birth.
the funny thing is this was knocked off of the headlines by the duke lacrosse team raping a hooker.........sorry i meant stripper. under the heading that "any publicity is good publicity" this should be a boon to the duke lacrosse program but i'm guessing they feel otherwise. i see two sides to this (dont i always). first, isnt it funny that the two guys arrested are from the two wealthiest families. they are the richest kids on the team and wouldnt a stripper be able to google that info in a jiffy. usually this is just to get $200 in the champagne room but the payoff here would be much larger. on the other hand is there anyone who thinks some privledged white kids would think twice about raping a black stripper without any consequences. hmmmm..... rich white kids taking advantage of someone of a lesser staion in life....where have i heard this scenerio before? oh yeah, the white house.....right now. so actually if they did rape her they could argue that they only raped one black stripper while our president rapes a nation .....and hes not arrested. a strong case for both sides. it will be interesting to see where the fickle finger of fate finally lands but i'm guessing it wont be on the rich white kids.
its thursday kids, get out and have some fun.
