It's an odd place, but everybody respects him there

Unlike here. The title refers, of course, to whatever universe Tom Cruise is living in.

Tom Cruise has filed a $50-million lawsuit against Holesome Fun Incorporated, the world's largest manufacturer of sex toys, over the company's alleged unauthorized use of his image on its new Mission Insertable butt plug.

No, really!

That's the difference between "stars" and us little people. Me, I'd be rather honored to think that people would pay money to stuff my likeness up their ol' wazoo. I'd hope to be smart enough not to raise a big fuss too, thereby opening myself up to reporting like this:

Mr. Cruise is also demanding "the immediate and complete withdrawal" of the Mission Insertable butt plug...

Immediate? Selfish bastard, at least wait until I'm finished.

(almost forgot, found this thanks to the crew over at Babble-on).

1 I think it might be too much to ask Tom to be proud of it, but he sure as heck should have ignored it. This is bound to turn into jokes on Letterman.

2 Nice find, Ted. It couldn't have happened to a nicer dude than Tom Cruise... and it was almost like it was a setup, no? Like they NEW what a big fuss he would make, thus giving them much more advertising than they could ever hope for.

Owlish: I don't think they can say "butt plug" on tv, can they? Or not American tv
