Elton John loves flowers, spending thousands of dollars annually on blooms for his many homes. So it's no surprise that he's partnered with London's most prestigious flower show to raise money for charity.
Along with other top British celebrities like Helen Mirren, the Rocket Man has decorated and autographed a garden gnome that will be put on display later this month at the Royal Horticultural Society Chelsea Flower Show. After the show is over, the gnomes will be auctioned on eBay to raise money for a charity that hopes to encourage young people's interest in gardening.
The gnome that Elton donated was inspired by "Paris," the rock star gnome who's one of the characters in Gnomeo & Juliet, the animated film produced by his movie company, Rocket Pictures. The figurine wears big, oversized glasses just like John, and is covered with sequins. Elton also has autographed an additional set of Gnomeo & Juliet characters for the auction.
The RHS Flower Show takes place May 21-25.
Last season, the Cincinnati Reds held a silent auction for charity . . . which included the chance for a kid to be batboy for the night.
Ted Kremer's parents were the high bidders. Ted is 29 years old, and has Down's Syndrome . . . and he got to be batboy for a night.
Ted did such a good job that the team invited him back to do ANOTHER game this season . . . on Thursday night.
Ted asked the team for two things before the game: He wanted the pitchers to strike out 11 batters, so everyone would win free pizza . . . and he wanted third baseman Todd Frazier to hit a home run. So Todd said, quote, "I'll hit you one."
(--The Reds have a promotion where, if Reds pitchers combine for 11 strikeouts in a game, every ticket holder wins a free small pizza.)
And check this out: EVERYONE came through. The pitchers struck out 12 Miami Marlins batters . . . and Ted got his pizza. And in the sixth inning, Todd hit a home run. (--The Reds won the game, 11 to 1.)
This is not a joke. A man at the largest outdoor bazaar in Buenos Aires bought two toy poodles from a vendor for $150 each. Only he didn’t actually buy two poodles. He actually bought two ferrets that were hopped up on steroids and given fancy hairdos so they would look like poodles.
In addition, one lady also bought a ferret, believing it to be a chihuahua. People in Argentina call the “enhanced” ferrets Brazilian rats despite the fact that they’re not rats at all. Turns out, when ferrets get excited, they do a “weasel war dance,” and when they get upset, they hiss. Maybe one of these two terrifying traits are what clued their owners in, since apparently having creepy ferret faces didn’t quite do the trick.
