It is bad enough that Kneeepads Magazine is the biggest kiss ass in the free world. OK, well they tie with Larry King, but Kneepads is still the biggest in print. Oh, wait. Larry King has a column doesn't he? Well, anyway you get the idea. What Kneepads doesn't usually do is lie. Until now. Maybe they would not call it a lie. Maybe they would use a different term. I will let you decide.
Jeremy Piven was interviewed last night and told Kneepads that he had not had any fish in ten months. This is of course because he is still dealing with the fallout of his “mercury poisoning” and has to pretend he hasn't had any fish at all because eating it would put him on his deathbed.
Kneepads of course printed everything Jeremy said. “I haven't had a piece of fish since the doctor told me to lower my blood mercury level. So, it's been almost 10 months now.” Piven then went into a diatribe about how he really was close to death and how everyone should be concerned about him and that he blah, blah, blah, close to death, blah, blah, text me girls, blah, blah, blah.
If Kneepads would have bothered fact checking before kissing ass they would have seen that in March which was 3 months ago, and not 10, that Piven was spotted eating calamari (which is not technically fish) and also tuna tartare which last I checked is fish, and raw. Oh, and has the highest mercury count. (thanks to libby for checking the archives and not letting Piven or Kneepads get away with it)
