Today's Blind Items - Jackass

If you were at The Mall Of America this weekend in Minneapolis you might have seen this very good looking B- list actor from one of those network initial shows. He was walking through the mall when a woman stopped him and asked our actor for his autograph. No problem. The actor obliged and even took a photo. So, where is the Jackass behavior? Well, the actor asked the woman what she was doing in the mall. What, is this like pick up time? Anyway, she pointed down to her 4 year old twins and said they were about to get in line to see Santa. The actor then bent down to the kids and said, "You should know by now there is no Santa." He then walked away.

Eads, all the way!!!

incognito said...

LOL, classic wacko behaviour

*Miss_P* said...

He's a prick whoever he is

Hello it's me... said...

Chris O'Donnell

Eddie Cibrian.

I dont think George Ead's is B List...most people barely know him

Nikki said...

no idea, but he's a dickhead

nunaurbiz said...

Would a guy with kids say this? I don't have a guess otherwise.

But, hey, at least he wasn't lying :-)

busybee said...

I know he's a jerk for doing that, but it still made me laugh. :-/ I'm a jerk

Mooshki said...

What a dick!

AnnMarie said...

That stinks - and made me laugh. Wouldn't their mother be able to fix it, though? They ARE only 4, the man's a stranger and if Mom says there's a Santa, there's a Santa.

Worst-case scenario: the kids will have an interesting story when asked how they found out about Santa.

looserdude said...

I think it's really weird that we have this custom of lying to children about Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny and Tooth Fairy and all that crazy stuff. It seems like it would make children mistrust their parents when they find out the truth.

liza said...

am sorry but i LOLed :D

pomme said...

jerk!!!

Karmen said...

Ryan - Eads was my first guess, too.

Lauren said...

Looserdude, I understand your sentiments. However, I was lied to about all three mythical creatures, and I turned out fine and I don't mistrust my parents.

Thisisridiculous said...

Lmao! I thought that was funny.

TaterOnTheCouch said...

I hope it's not Chris Meloni from SVU. What about Michael Weatherly from NCIS?

Lisa (not original) said...

Santa is the magic of Christmas. Giving without expecting anything in return other than a cookie or a hug. I would have told the twins that the actor was on the naughty list and didn't get gifts from Santa which is why he doesn't believe.

I still tell mine that, and they are teens. "You wanna chance it and get nothing? Didn't think so, now brew Santa's damn coffee!" XD

sunnyside1213 said...

Doesn't Chris O'Donnell have a bunch of children? Would a father do that to two little kids?

sunnyside1213 said...

Lisa (not original) - so funny.

RocketQueen said...

I know it's terrible, but it made me laugh, too.

Ryan said...

I'm guessing Eads over 9000 times and then doing a barrel roll. And oh... THE GAME.

Pookie said...

hmmm...who'd be in the mid-west right now unless they're shooting or visiting family? boo hiss on him, whoever it is.

Dawn said...

wouldn't this be Johnny Knoxville?

Good-looking Jackass??

Susan said...

Lisa (not original)...that's the same thing I told my kids when their classmates, starting in kindergarten, came in bragging there was no Santa, that Santa doesn't come to their house because they are naughty. I never told my kids either, they are teenagers now, LOL.

Green Wave Gal said...

this made me laugh too...but still not cool. I'm Jewish, so I never believed in Santa. I think my parents told me from the beginning that he wasn't real. Easter Bunny was also a non-issue. The Tooth Fairy...all I remember was my mom giving me a little money when I lost a tooth...maybe because I have an older brother who already knew the truth? :)

I would think it would be someone without kids. Is Eads B-list? I like him but I don't know it he's B-list.

Karmen said...

Eads is one of the leads of a hit show. That definitely counts as B- TV actor.

Lisa (not original) said...

It's fun when they get older and can bargain with Santa to get off the shit list. :) Earn your gifts naughty bitches!

My daughter was reading over my shoulder. That'll teach her nosey self. hehe

Tenisha said...

I have 4 year old twins too...and if that jerk had said that to my kids I would have kicked him or at least stomped on his toe for that. WTF kinda thing is that to say to little kids???

not on my dollar said...

I can't stop laughing at this!


I have relatives who refuse to give credit to Santa for what they buy so they let their children KNOW it's from them.

Erin said...

Darn, I should have gone to MOA to finish my shopping this weekend. Maybe I would have seen this jerk.
Good thing I don't have kids though. I would've encouraged the 4 yr olds to flip him the bird. "Hold that one-filger salute up nice and high, kids! He deserves it."

Lisa (not original) said...

One more story, then I'll shut up:

UPS brought a box here a couple of weeks ago, and my girl signed for it. I told her to hide it in her room and not to let me forget about it. While she was at school, I went in there, got it, wrapped it, and put it under the tree. Last night I was doing final wrapping and told her to get the secret present. She knows it's hers, because she snoops and is freaking because she can't find it anywhere. lmao I'm mean like that.

chihuahuense said...

DAMNIT! I knew I should've gone to the mall this weekend. Last week I had an hour to myself, so I was going to run in (I live 5 minutes away) and get my husband this stupid necklace that he wanted. It was a Monday, and it was morning...no problem, I thought. I'll be damned if that nutjob Sarah Palin and all her crazy "followers" weren't there. I hate that place, but would've loved to meet this jackass so I could submit a story to Enty.

I'll guess Christopher Meloni, even though he is H.O.T. That Ed Hardy shirt, or whatever the hell it is called, that he was posted in recently killed it for me.

sunnyside1213 said...

When ever I hear about the one fingered salute I always remember the Vietnam POWs who told the guards it was the Hawaiian good luck sign.

JoElla said...

Okay, so I have had a cocktail already (been a wild Monday UGH!) and threatened to call Santa myself since my daughter is not a good girl today... Yes I did laugh..

But now I wanna know who I am officially going to hate for this!

What a jackass!

selenakyle said...

F*cking asshole!!!

PLEASE reveal this dickhead come NYE, Enty!

Lauren said...

Lisa(not Orignial) Can we be new best friends? I really like your parenting skills. :)

selenakyle said...

Little kids need healthy imaginations! Let the playground bullies tell them there's no Santa...it will happen in good time. 4-yo is a bit young to burst such delicate bubbles. It's NOT the place of an effing stranger. Just not cool, no matter what.

Jayme said...

@ Lisa (not original) I have a snooper too!! Just started this year. She got into the closet in my room while her father and I were running errands. I had set a little trap so I'd be able to see whether the door to the closet had been opened while we were out (it had). I'm sure she saw the Wii as it was pretty exposed. I know it's the thing she wants most, so I'm going to wrap it and hide it on Christmas morning. Let her unwrap all of her other presents and just wonder for a bit before I pull it out.

nancer said...

i think meloni would be a bit higher than B-. i'll go with this eads guy because i never heard of him.

Cindy said...

If someone had the balls to say this to my kid, I would have just told them that the man was jealous cus he is on the permanent naughty list.

Mango said...

Holy FUCK! There's no Santa??

Lioness70 said...

My almost 10 yo has said that to his 6 and 8 yo sisters. Yes, he was punished. No, they don't believe him. ;)

A 10 yo can sort of get away with that, but not a grown man. Whatta ass. I'd have kneed him in his gonads if I was near him!

Preciousredtx said...

Whoever this is is just mean and an ass...though I did laugh....I would have to guess the guy who plays D'nozo on NCIS (just cuz his character is such a dick)

I had to go through explaining that different families have different beliefs about Santa when the neighbor kid told my son in front of us that there is no Santa and would shut up about....I think my fiancee wanted to knock him into next week...that neighbor kid is always such a little poopyhead....I swear

Lila said...

I would have been seriously pissed if this would have happened to us. The kids are 4YO! I seriously doubt the douche has kids. Pull that crap on an older kid, and yes I giggled. But as a parent it really sucks to be forced into that position in such a manner.

This reminded me of the time when my twins were in 3rd grade and came to me DEMANDING an explanation because they were told Santa didn't exist in school. Of course I laughed, they were older and it was at just about the time I was expecting the confrontation. lol

I pulled up St. Nicholas' bio online and we talked about how the tradition began. At first they were actually pissed because they heard it from school first. LOL My boys are a piece of work, I'd like to take credit for that. hehehe

Kingrey said...

The question EL poses, "What, is this like pick up time?" leads me to believe it's Eddie Cibrian.

mygeorgie said...

Dream Crushers! Why are some people so fucking cruel? It's no else's business to discuss Santa, God or sex with OTHER PEOPLE'S KIDS! (at least when they are young & impressionable)

My daughter's whole grade 1 class was told by the crusty old Christian teacher, "Of course there's no Santa. Please, flying reindeer? C'mon. Get real."

Stupid bitch got nadda from many parents for Christmas, but we all spoiled the teacher's aid.

My daughter believed in the magic of Santa & Christmas until grade 7 :)

mygeorgie said...

Oh, how 'bout that sickly smooth dude that used to be on Y&R? Shemar Moore I think? Too cool for his own good & no kids as far as I know. I think it's gotta be a single, no kids, full-of-himself kinda guy.

Preciousredtx said...

mygeorgie...he is not on an initial show...he is on criminal minds

mygeorgie said...

Preciousredtx: You're right :) Sorry, my blood is boiling over this asshole scrooge behaviour & all those crime shows sorta blend into each other to me.

shakey said...

I, too, like Lisa (not original's) parenting views.

My son is 8. I thought his belief would just fade. He came home very angry with a classmate because he announced to one and all Santa doesn't exist. He said, "I mean, what kind of kid doesn't believe in Santa?"

If this guy had done that in front of me, I would have ripped his autograph up while screaming to everyone he's an asshole.

headrot said...

lol, yes its a jackass move, but it's totally something i would do too.

but, i'm a total scrooge about christmas.

Dijea said...

I heart Mango. Best reply yet.

Bella said...

F*cker

RM said...

I never lied to my children about Santa. I told them it was make believe. They still chose to believe anyway. I even caught one of them praying to God, "Dear God, please let mommy know there is a Santa Claus." We still laugh about that to this day. As for this jackass. It wasn't his place to do that.

Saz said...

LOL. At four years old the kids wouldn't believe him anyway. At that age the only proof they need is a mall santa and presents from "santa" under tree. And when the kids enter high school they'll understand the humour of the situation and joke about some actor telling them there was no santa.

I have no clue who this is given I'm not an avid TV watcher. But what a grinch.

As for the whole lying to your kids about mythical creature debate, I'm in university and my mom STILL puts presents under the tree from Santa. I'm not complaining! Extra presents, yay!

classalpha said...

... I'd have told him, "Ya, there's no Santa, I totally agree. As well, we all know by now that there are no heterosexual male actors in Hollywood either...you Hollywood "actor" KWEER."



... then I'd have "added", "... 'Nuff SAID."

Mooshki said...

More Minnesotans, yay! Someday when the temperature isn't in the single digits we should really have a get-together. :) But not at the MOA, please. That place makes me homicidal even when actors aren't running around being jackasses.

Mooshki said...

On the other hand, maybe we could get Enty to join us if he knows the MOA movie theater serves booze. ;)

ardleigh said...

I would so have to kick that man's ass.

I would also say what I told my nephew " Better watch it. When you stop believing in Santa,he stops believing in you and no more gifts." (It scared my nephew for weeks and he believed for 1 more year)

NYer said...

Caruso.

PJ Nelson said...

OH! Mom could alway tell them that strangers lie. Will help her out later as they get older.

Preciousredtx said...

mygeorgie,..I am an avid watcher of the CBS crime shows...lol...but they can get confusing,..just ask my fiancee

Sean said...

Only Caruso can be that much of an asshole

Jamie's Girl said...

Santa Claus is a rite of passage. So is the Tooth Fairy and the Easter Bunny. Relax. It doesn't screw you up. It's fun.

Having said that, this guy is a dick.

brittiany said...

looserdude, i get where you are coming from and have always wondered why parents teach their children to have faith in mythical creatures. well, scientists have been studying the phenomenon around the world and dont quote me on this, bc i read it a while ago but it has to do with creating a moral compass of the child and making them have faith in a greater good. and its not so much to do with a God but with faith and MORE IMPORTANTLY imagination. children who have faith in Santa, The Easter Bunny and The Tooth Fairy have greater imagination which leads to a more creating brain. I believe I read the study on Jezebel but the book Rant also has a great non scientific perspective on the subject. I will add that I was six when my four year old sister told me that there was no Santa and it broke my heart- but i still had faith in the message of him and carry it on to my Kindergarten students. Keep the faith alive, one day they are going to have to grow up and face the reality of the world.

Lian said...

Yay, Minnesotans! I was at the Mall this weekend (4 hours on Saturday afternoon! Ugh, parking was a nightmare), but didn't run into him (at least, if it was someone I recognized). But then, I stuck to the west side, and I'm assuming Santa would've been in the rotunda.

Vanessa said...

i don't get what's the big deal...i mean isn't christamas all about celebrating the birth of christ, praising God and spending time w/ your family.

So why would this make the actor a jackass....i would have given him a high five.

chihuahuense said...

There is also a Santa on the third floor next to Famous Daves. Me and the boys went--he was a little manic this year, too many uppers I believe. YAY, too, for Minnesotans! We should totally get together!

chihuahuense said...

The big deal, btw, is that it isn't any of his business. I hate people sticking their nose in shit that has nothing to do with them. So many people think that they are just "blunt" or "tell-it-like-it-is" or whatever, when really they are just JACKASSES.

califblondy said...

Lisa, your my new hero Mom. I pull that kind of Roseanne crap on my kids all the time. I feel so much better now.

I wasn't so pissed about the lying about the santa thing as I was when I asked my Mother how babies "got borned". I'd hate to tell you how old I was when I found out babies came out down there.

Melody said...

Vanessa, I'm an agnostic and I celebrate Christmas as a secular holiday. To my family, Christmas had much more to do with my birthday (which actually is on Christmas) than it did with Jesus' who was really born in March. The early Christians coopted the very ancient yule/solar festivals during this time and plunked Jesus' "birth" there.

I don't think what the guy did was very bad but he certainly is a jerk for doing it. And it's not Eads or Meloni. My money is on Caruso.

VentingVixen said...

Erm, it's only gonna be Caruso if Enty was joking about the "very good looking" part...

Mango said...

I'm atheist and I celebrate Xmas because to me it's all about family and friends and how dear they are to me.

I don't put up a tree (have an artificial tree that I gave away on Freecycle)but that's because I'm lazy and hate the fuss. And my cats would wreak havoc with the &#^$ thing. But I love the idea of Christmas and giving.

Rolf said...

Sorry, can't see no Jackass behaviour here. Don't lie to the kids by telling them, there's a Santa in the first place.

Melody said...

VentingVixen, you're right, I have to withdraw my vote for Caruso although he's the biggest jackass on the initials shows. Eads and Meloni are a little too non-jackassy from what I hear (I have no first-hand information, I am but a board-playing elf) for this blind so I'm going to guess Michael Weatherly since I don't know anyone who knows or has met him but as I'm usually wrong, I'm probably wrong. It's definitely not Mark Harmon who is a good guy.

MN Girl said...

Another person from Minnesota on here, and I was at the MOA on Saturday as well! Don't know if this will help, but Ali, one of the previous winners from The Biggest Loser, was at the MOA on Saturday. So is this real loser affiliated with NBC?

And for the record, the wind chill just sucks today!

Icecat said...

I didn't have time to read through all of the comments...But here are my guesses.

NOT Christopher Meloni I really cant see him doing this..BUT you never know..

David Caruso
Mark Harmon
Richard Belzer
Ice Tea

My top guess is CARUSO he seems like a effen prick to me, and I dont like him :)

Babs said...

This should settle it. (P.S. The guy's a jerk, whoever he is):

Dear Editor,
I am 8 years old. Some of my little friends say that there is no Santa Claus. Papa says "If you see it in the Sun, it is so." Please tell me the truth, is there a Santa Claus?

Virginia,
Your little friends are wrong. They have been affected by the skepticism of a skeptical age. They do not believe except what they see. They think that nothing can be which is not comprehensible by their little minds.

All minds, Virginia, whether they be men's or children's, are little. In this great universe of ours, man is a mere insect, an ant, in his intellect, as compared with the boundless world about him, as measured by the intelligence capable of grasping the whole of truth and knowledge.

Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus. He exists as certainly as love and generosity and devotion exist, and you know that they abound and give to our life its highest beauty and joy.

Alas! How dreary would be the world if there were no Santa Claus! It would be as dreary as if there were no Virginias. There would be no childlike faith then, no poetry, no romance to make tolerable this existence. We should have no enjoyment, except in sense and sight. The eternal light with which childhood fills the world would be extinguished.

Not believe in Santa Claus? You might as well not believe in fairies! You might get your Papa to hire men to watch all the chimneys on Christmas Eve to catch Santa Claus, but even if they did not see Santa Claus coming down, what would that prove?

Nobody sees Santa Claus, but that is no sign that there is no Santa Claus The most real things in the world are those that neither children nor men can see.

Did you ever see fairies dancing on the lawn? Of course not, but that's no proof that they are not there. Nobody can conceive or imagine all the wonders that are unseen and unseeable in the world.

You tear apart the baby's rattle and see what makes the noise inside, but there is a veil covering the unseen world which not the strongest man, or even the united strength of all the strongest men that ever lived, could tear apart. Only faith, fancy, poetry, love, romance, can push aside that curtain and view and picture the supernatural beauty and glory beyond.

Is it all real? Ah, Virginia, in all this world there is nothing else as real and abiding.

No Santa Claus? Thank God he lives and he lives forever. A thousand years from now, maybe 10 times 10,000 years from now, he will continue to make glad the hearts of children.

Written by Francis P. Church in 1897

Interesting St. Nicholas site.

I told my girls about St. Nick after my son was being all jackassy.

Ya know, it's one thing to hear Santa is a fake from your siblings or school buddies. That happens to everyone...but some stranger in a mall? Someone should wrap up fireplace ash in a pretty box and see how he likes that. (I told my son that was all he was going to get if he kept up the nonsense. ;) )

Charlie said...

Most likely a person of the Hebrew faith since they don't like Christmas at least according to my Hebrew neighbors. And I know they detest Santa because he never dropped off anything to them after visiting my place.

empyrios said...

this kinda made me laugh too

easily repairable damage though:

"it's ok kids. you should know by now all celebrities are crazy liars."

Icecat said...

Oh... Just re-read...

None of my guesses are "very good looking"...

I've got nothing..

Lisa (not original) said...

I told my son how babies were born when he was 6. He proceeded to tell his entire kindergarten class in graphic detail the very next day. When the school called horrified, I told them to be glad he didn't ask how they got in there to begin with. :)

As far as parents "tricking" their children into believing in Santa, I don't see a helluva lot of historical evidence that Jesus existed. It's more healthy to believe in something than to be a cynical prick like the actor in question for this blind.

not on my dollar said...

This guy "might" be a jerk but maybe next time the mom will think twice before asking a stranger for a picture or autograph. So what, you like them as an actor/singer etc. but it isn't worth the risk of finding out they're possibly a jackass.

Celebrities are only to be admired from afar. Don't get too close less you shatter the glass and are forced to deal with the reality that they're just an ordinary human being, warts included.

Green Wave Gal said...

Seriously Charlie? The Hebrew faith? Jewish people don't hate Christmas or Santa. It's just that we don't celebrate it.

Miranda said...

Ha! I'm sorry but this is too funny. I still remember telling my younger brother Santa wasn't real. The look on his face (and the tears afterward) were priceless.

Hey, I was a mean older sister.

mngddess said...

Lisa(not original) -

THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH SNOOPING!!!!!

I did it all the time as a kid.

I found the Christmas cookies, Christmas candies, Christmas presents, and, one time when I was four, I was a bit pooped from all the snooping and had a drink from the Christmas booze. Cold Duck and blackberry brandy, to be exact.

True story.

Love ya, Lisa!

Lisa (not original) said...

Snooping is half the fun! lol My little apple didn't fall far from the tree. After the secret present vanished from her room, all my stuff mysteriously vanished from under the Christmas tree. Evidently, there was a secret emergency meeting called, and I'm scratched from the "good list". If I repent, I MIGHT get presents. lmfao I think she's on to me.

Sporky said...

I have firsthand knowledge that Richard Belzer is an uber-Prick. I vote for him doing this.

Icecat said...

I can totally see Richard Belzer doing this too, but is he "Very Good Looking"?

empyrios said...

what about Jonathan Togo from CSI Miami

didn't he just get arrested for giving the beat down to his gf?

Caroline said...

WHAT DO YOU MEAN THERE'S NO SANTA!!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

VentingVixen said...

DEFINITELY Eads.
He has a history of doucheyness. It's quite a famous Downunder story that he was supposed to be a star attraction at the Logies in Australia in about 2006/2007. 2hrs before the event (2hrs!!) his publicist phones the organisers and cancels. Apparently George "doesn't like red carpets"... Douche.

Lisa (not original) said...

Of course, we can be friends. Parents need to band together to keep the kids on their toes. :) Can't have the next generation becoming complacent, can we? LOL

Hugs to all of you. Keep those mini yous guessing.

bionic bunny! said...

guys, my mother always told my brother and i that as long as we believed in santa, santa would believe in us. same with me and my kids.
of course santa hasn't believed so much since DD hasn't gotten off her lazy ass to even bother looking for work in, i dunno, is it 4 or 5 years? and she'll be 24 in march. AND we spent thousands putting her through school. AND she's both a certified medical assistant and plebotomist. not licensed. too much trouble to get the paperwork in for the tests, i guess.

sorry, off track there. but you're all right. i don't care how big a fan i was (i didn't even look malcolm mcdowell in the eye in the airport lounge, btw) i would have handed the autograph back and walked off. even at 4 my kids would know by my reaction that made him a "bad man".
and santa trumps even the martians!!

asshat elf-fondler.
