It was a foregone conclusion that Dr. Conrad Murray's involuntary manslaughter trial would be a circus, but never did we expect it to involve actual animals.

An attorney for the doctor, accused of the accidental death of Michael Jackson, has requested to have a veterinarian as an expert witness. Why, you ask?

The vet would be asked to give a pig Propofol, in hopes of proving that the powerful anesthetic drug that felled MJ can be ingested, not just injected.

Murray-Pig-MJ

As part of its throw-everything-against-the-wall defense, Murray's team will argue that Jackson could have OD’d on Propofol by slipping it into his juice box.

Seriously. He's gonna argue that Michael Jackson chugged Propofol.

The defense also wants access to rehearsal footage from before the 2009 This Is It tour, as they hope to show MJ was a lost cause at the time of his death.

Of course, none of this contradicts the belief of the D.A. that Murray’s guilty simply for leaving Propofol around the house, or treating Michael with it at all.

There are myriad questions about MJ's care that won't be explained away by some swine. It'll take more than stunts to bring home the legal bacon. Sorry.

Commentators everywhere keep on lambasting Glee, and not because of stunt casting or inconsistent writing. The show's latest high-profile critic? Glenn Beck.

On Friday, the Fox News host gave the show this "compliment" ...

"I've watched in stunned horror combined with a sense of admiring awe. It is a brilliant, brilliant show, but it is a horror show. Everybody in here is somebody your kids would want to be like, except everyone is sleeping with everyone else.

It's all about self-gratification... it's a nightmare."

Fox News Pundit

Beck's attacks were just the latest on the hit show, with SNL alum Victoria Jackson and author Bret Easton Ellis delivering particularly blunt, harsh critiques.

As a result, the Fox musical dramedy got a vocal defense from the President of GLAAD, Jarrett Barrios, who told The Hollywood Reporter the following:

Plenty of soccer (sorry, non-American readers ... football) clips have gone viral online, but this might be the first time we've seen one featuring an 18-month-old.

They way Dutch youngster Baerke van der Meij delivers the ball into his "goal" (toy chest), you have to imagine a professional contract can't be too far off.

Oh, wait, he's already been signed. Sort of. See why here:

Osama bin Laden is dead. This is not a hoax. The world's most notorious terrorist has been killed by U.S. military forces, according to breaking news reports.

The mastermind of the September 11, 2001 attacks and the leader of Al Qaeda was reportedly shot in the head in Afghanistan and his body is in U.S. hands.

Bin Laden is believed to have been taken down by U.S. assets in a mansion outside Islamabad, Pakistan, along with other members of his family, officials say.

Already a notorious fugitive before the 9/11 attacks that killed over 3,000 people, capturing Osama had been a key national security priority for a decade.

Few additional details have been confirmed about bin Laden's death at this time, but President Barack Obama will address the nation shortly to provide them.

The administration is still gathering intelligence and will be briefing congressional officials in advance of the President’s address to America tonight.

Obama will deliver the news to the nation in an address from the White House, almost 10 years after the catastrophic attacks bin Laden orchestrated.

Story developing ...

UPDATE: The Al Qaeda leader was shot in the head by U.S. forces in a mansion in Abbottabad, about 31 miles north of the Pakistani capital of Islamabad.

President Barack Obama took the stage at the White House Correspondents' Dinner last night and took on both Donald Trump and the "birther" nonsense.

Entering to Hulk Hogan's old WWE anthem "Real American" as Obama's birth certificate flashed on screen, he then treated the crowd to his "birth video."

After poking fun at himself and various Republicans, Obama seemed to delight in laying into the Donald (who was there) for what felt like an eternity.

Regardless of your political leanings, you gotta admit he killed it:

Following our 44th President, host Seth Meyers took to the podium and went off on all things cable news, birth certificates, and of course, Donald Trump.

Watch Seth's effort - and read Trump's response to being the butt of so many jokes (spoiler alert: he was not exactly pleased) - after the jump:

Charlie Sheen says he's never done heroin in his life.

While hard to believe in a sense, he's admitted everything he HAS done proudly, so you have to wonder why he'd lie about it. Why did it even come up?

Because his former boss Chuck Lorre took a thinly-veiled shot at Sheen with his vanity card at the end of The Big Bang Theory on Thursday night.

Lorre made reference to a monkey on the sitcom exhibiting "increasingly erratic" behavior, refusing to work, being "a heroin addict," checking into rehab, etc.

Pretty clear who the CBS producer was referring to, right?

As he has many times before, Sheen reamed out Lorre earlier in the week at the suggestion that Two and a Half Men can exist without him.

He was not pleased with the heroin assertion Lorre made after TBBT, telling TMZ in response "I have never done or tried heroin in my life."

So that's that. Probably. Here's Lorre's vanity card cheap shot:

Is it possible that not everyone is a Belieber?

On stage in Sydney Friday, as part of his current world tour, Justin Bieber was faced with a handful of flying eggs falling at his feet. Were they thrown by unruly fans? Dropped from some oddly-place piece of equipment?

It's hard to say, but one thing is certain: the Biebs handled the strange event like a pro, simply stepping back during a dance routine and continuing with the show.

See for yourself:

Bieber will perform in Melbourne, Hindmarsh and Perth in the next few days. Let's hope his adventure Down Under is more excellent in those cities and less eggcellent.
