Overnight Open Thread: "Economy Crashes: Nicolas Cage Hardest Hit" (genghis)

How did it come to this? The collapse of the housing market will apparently spare no one as Credit-Crunched Nicolas Cage is Forced to Sell Castle. Itís a very short blurb from ABC News (the Australian one) but guaranteed to tug at your heartstrings (at least until you swat it away and tell it to knock that needy shit off):

Ē"Due to the difficult economic situation, unfortunately, I was no longer able to keep it," the 45-year-old told German celebrity weekly Bunte.Ē

ďCage, whose mother has roots in Bavaria, bought the 28-room Neidstein castle with 165 hectares of forest and gardens two years ago, reportedly paying $US2.6 million for the property, which dates back to the 16th century.Ē

ďBut Cage has not been seen since flying off in a helicopter in 2008, according to local media.Ē

No word yet on whether these people have taken away his helicopter. Also, $2.6 million seems kind of a low price for a 28-room castle with all that hectarage (keeping in mind that one hectare is approximately equal to 13 decalitres or seven leagues as a unit of time as well as temperature). There has to be a typo there. That or the castle had previously been used as a crack house and brothel.

I think we all can empathize with Nicís plight. After all, itís a small, small world where every manís home is his castle.

(And say what you will about Nicolas Cage and his more recent work, but he did get to have his way with Laura Dernís funbags at length in Wild at Heart, for which I remain eternally grateful and/or jealous.)
