These celebrity name puns might just be the epitome of the dad joke, but we're really okay with that. Sometimes puns just catch you by surprise with their wit and you don't even think about how stupid they are!

Since the announcement of a new Mummy movie sans Brendan Fraser, fans of the former Encino Man have been making moves to save the 48-year-old actor’s career. Fraser, who has largely been unseen since his role in the (somehow) Oscar-winner Crash, has kept a low profile these last few years. But in the weeks since the Mummy trailer’s release, intense fan interest has emerged.
Over 34,000 signatures now grace a change.org petition to “Bring Brendan Fraser back into film/television.” Following his 2007, the petition reads, Fraser is required by law to pay $900,000 annually in alimony. The petition pleads with he networks to help get Fraser “back on his feet again” because “we miss him.”
Other efforts to rescue a man that has rescued us from a dull time at the movies many times over have included the #SaveBrendanFraser hashtag on Twitter and, as The New York Post points out, “successfully campaigned to get his ranking on IMDb among the top 500 actors.”
As for the new Mummy, Fraser has given Cruise his blessing saying, “Tom’s going to be great in it. He has incredible worldwide appeal.”
We miss you, Brendan. Good luck.
There’s no business like show business, and because of that, you don’t have to care about other people.
When Jerry Lewis, the Hollywood icon behind The Nutty Professor, agreed to sit down with The Hollywood Reporter, that didn’t necessarily mean he would be answering any questions. In fact, it means he'll be the one asking the questions, thank you very much.
When you can't sustain a conversation with your grandmother over the holidays, remember that she's not Jerry Lewis and be grateful https://t.co/3StgUIQrLP— Bryan Case (@bryancase41) December 19, 2016
Watch in horror as he wastes everyone’s time for seven minutes, parroting back whatever the last thing the interviewer asks him.
If nothing else, this should prepare you for your next job interview. If you find yourself in a rough patch, just start screaming "Why?" at the interviewer. It works.
If Russia is ever Under Seige, well, let’s just say Putin’s got a friend who is Above the Law,Out for Justice, and Hard to Kill
We’re talking of course about Steven Seagal, the direct-to-DVD, neck-snappin’ superstar, who President Vladimir Putin, in an Executive Decision, just awarded Russian citizenship to. Looks like Putin’s got some backup if he’s ever On Deadly Ground.
Seagal and Putin have never been too far Out of Reach, as their friendship has had a Code of Honor for years, with Seagal escorting Putin to martial arts expos around the world.
The NY Daily News reports that in the past, Seagal has called Putin the “greatest leader alive today.”*
"He cares more about Russia than anybody I know," said Seagal. "And he's not afraid to get up and do what needs to be done."
Seagal isn’t the first celebrity to be named a Russian citizen. Gerard Depardieu and Roy Jones, Jr. are there with him, feeling the Fire Down Below in the Belly of the Beast.
Uh… Marked for Death. Under Siege 2: Dark Territory.
Shannen Doherty has been very open with fans since being diagnosed with breast cancer. She posted this series of photos of her getting her head shaved on her Instagram.
She also included the picture above right before the black and white series of photos with the caption:
Cupcake pan, chocolates and a razor.... Stay tuned.
Mario Licato got punched in the face and knocked out for looking like Shia LaBeouf. No one knows what the motivation behind it was exactly, but according to Licato's Instagram post about his black eye, the last thing he heard before going down was, "this happened bc you look exactly like Shia LaBeouf".
The story isn't all bad, it seems like Licato is recovering quickly and he even got a voicemail from Shia LaBeouf himself. Licato told Cosmopolitan what the voicemail said and it's about what you might expect a rambling voicemail from Shia LaBeouf to sound like:
Hey, this is Shia LaBeouf … I just read an article that you were punched in the face because you look like me?" And he was like, "Aw, man. That sucks. I'm so sorry. But I get it. It's happened to me before." And then he was like, "I don't know. I wish I was in New York. I'd come bring you soup." He was just like, "This sucks. I don't even know what to say. I'm sorry. People are just crazy. Just because you look like me?" I was obviously laughing the whole time. And then he was like, "Here's my phone number. Don't give it to anybody. Please, please, call me back. Call me back if you want to. We could chat. Let's giggle over this. Maybe there's a silver lining in all this. But call me back." And then he was like, "And once again, this is Shia LaBeouf, the guy you got hit for looking like. And yeah, man, I'm sorry. I'm just really sorry." And he was like "Keep your head up, G." And that was it.
A man created this creepy, lifelike Scarlett Johansson robot with some ingenuity and a 3D printer. Actually, he didn't explicity create a ScarJobot, he based the likeness off a Hollywood celebrity who he does not want to name. But we can make a pretty good guess....
So the likeness is...weird but it seems like the creator, Ricky Ma, is a true robot enthusiast. He says he really just wanted to build a robot and it took a long time (and $50,000) to acquire the parts and skills to come this far. He told the Daily Mirror:
When I started building it, I realised it would involve dynamics, electromechanics and programming. I have never studied programming, how was I supposed to code?
Additionally, I needed to build 3D models for all the parts inside the robot. Also, I had to make sure the robot's external skin and its internal parts could fit together. When you look at everything together, it was really difficult.
Why are celebrities like Miriam Margolyes or Emma Thompson and her husband Greg Wise posing naked with dead fish? To save the fish, of course! Well... not the ones in the pictures obviously but some of their relatives.
This isn't really a new practice. It's part of a non-profit called Fish Love which is aimed at raising awareness of unsustainable fishing practices. Their goal is to teach people how to choose more sustainable fish to eat. Fish Love has been around since 2009 and has photographed many other celebrities in the past like Gillian Anderson and Helena Bonham Carter.
Tony Dyson, known best as the creator of R2-D2, recently passed away in his home in Malta. Now his friends have started a crowdfunding campaign to cover the costs of his funeral services. The GoFundMe page explains:
Sadly, as wonderfully savvy he was with creating, money wasn't one of his strong suits. As the people who love him dearly, we are trying to make his arrangements. His wish was to be donated to science, because he wanted those to look into his brilliant brain. Sadly, due to the circumstances surrounding his death (he died alone in his apartment of natural causes), he wasn't found quickly enough to have this happen. We believe his next wish was to be cremated. We have gotten an invoice for this to happen, and the cost in US Dollars is close to $8000. Needless to say, this is more money than most of his friends have on hand.Malta does not do cremation, so his body has to be shipped to his home country, England. This is the major expense and why it is so costly.
So far, the page has raised $3,600 of it's $7,000 goal.
