Tom Cruise Calls Kettle Black

After pranksters doused Tom Cruise with a water gun disguised as a microphone at a War of the Worlds press event in London's Leicester Square, a flummoxed Cruise could only shout "You're a jerk!" repeatedly at his "assailant." (Click here for an account of the incident and a link to the video.)

That, and the fact that Maverick had the 4-man crew (who were working on a new comedy show for Britain's Channel 4) arrested, proves that there's no chapter on having a sense of humor in Dianetics (a "book" written by sci-fi author L. Ron Hubbard, the man who invented a machine that measures human gullibility).

It also makes one suspect that all it takes is simple tap water to wash away that plastic, creepily cheerful Scientology aura. I guess it'll be another donation and back to the machine for Tom.
