SURPRISE! A Rhode Island man has been arrested for driving drunk, and his blood alcohol level was the highest ever recorded, a whopping 0.491 percent. (The surprise is that he's not dead.)

SURPRISE! Courtney Love is being sued for $1 million smackers for allegedly failing to pay an accounting firm for their share of the Nirvana catalog. (I'm pretty sure she spent that money on plastic surgery... but you know, it don't look half bad!)
