New Celebrity Mugshots

Tis the season to be jolly, and what better way to be jolly than to scope out celebrities at the top of their game getting collared for a stint in the pokey! Shadenfreude! There, I said it: a day cannot pass happily without mention of that Germanic buzz word, which is now almost past it's prime. Almost.

Anyhoo: Check out Johnny Cash in a 1965 drug bust.

And here's 50 Cent awaiting felony charges for peddling crack cocaine and heroin.

Oh, here's a sweetie, Andre the Giant, awaiting arraignment for "roughing up a local tv cameraman." Oh dear sweet lord ... can you imagine the poor wretch who had to share a cell with Andre? Can you fathom a moist Oz-like scenario where a hapless convict has to do Andre's laundry? Or fluff his pillows for him? (please excuse the pun there)

But my all-time favorite is Robert Downey, Jr, inexplicably bubbly as he gets ready to serve some serious time on a drug conviction. He deserves an Oscar for this performance.
