2:00 PM -- The folks at Disney are creative to a fault.

According to a story in The Sunday Times, Disney is using digital technology to make Lindsay Lohan's bustline smaller in the upcoming film, "Herbie: Fully Loaded." The article states:

Disney technicians went though scenes showing the actress jumping up and down at a motor racing track and altered them with a computer program...

First of all, my hoax meter is going crazy; I honestly think this is a gag of some sort. I mean, is there really a newspaper called the The Sunday Times?

If the digital manipulation really happened, I want to go on record as praising Disney for stopping what was obviously going to lead to the extinction of the American family, the fall of democracy, and, probably, global warming.

I only wish they had taken an extra step and forced her to wear a chicken suit.
