Is that like thinking kimchi is Japanese?

I usually don't go in for celebrity gossip, but I thought this was sort of funny. Apparently Tom Cruise was in Brazil, hawking the movie Valkyrie (which was a pretty good flick, by the way). After greeting the lusophone Brazilians with a very Spanish "Hola," Cruise told reporters in Rio de Janeiro that he fell in love with Brazil while watching films about samba and tango.

The tango, of course, is an Argentine dance. 

What really made me laugh was that, according to the New York Post, Cruise "took a side trip to the private island of plastic surgeon Dr. Ivo Pitanguy, who has his own landing strip and a menagerie of exotic animals."

Doctor Ivo. Doctor Ivo with a his own landing strip and a menagerie of exotic animals. I hope the State Department or the CIA is keeping tabs on that guy.
