Ask and you shall receive!

I was going to just post a comment on my previous entry to address katielady's question of what Tom Cruise has done to set the crazy bar so high, but then as if given by Xenu himself, this story appeared on the Internet today. It has been rumored that Tom is insisting that Katie Holmes follow L. Ron Hubbard's delivery rules and be completely silent during labor in order to keep from scarring the child. Today the story became more real when friends of the couple were photographed bringing posters into their house with reminders to Katie. The most visible was: "Be silent and make all physical movements slow and understandable."

Now I know that none of this mentions any wacky names for the child, but my assertion that Tom has set the bar high for celebrity craziness was more of a generalization on the LA culture as a whole. Ridiculous names for their children is only one example of the insanity that has gripped Hollywood. And in case you want a refresher on how Tom has seemingly cornered the market on crazy, WWTDD has an excellent roundup of his exploits.

Completely silent during the birth? Now that's just crazy talk!

But Tom gave her an iPod so everything will be fine!

I would like to see Tom Cruise give birth without making a sound! How can making any noise hurt the child - they come out screaming anyway!! Sometimes it gets to be time for a celebrity to just quietly fade away - and this could be the time for Tom.
