Now you've seen everyone do it...
Just when we thought the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge couldn't get any better (we honestly thought the swearing toddler topped them all!), an unlikely group of people have decided to take it on over in Ireland; they would be none other than Redemptoristine Sisters of Dublin.
Nuns can have fun too!
In the latest viral Ice Bucket Challenge to hit the web, a group of six nuns dressed in their traditional habits and red robes drench each other in icy water after hearing about the hugely popular charity internet craze which was set up to raise money for the ALS Association. Now it seems LITERALLY everybody has done it.
George W. Bush and Laura Bush - Former U.S. Former president George W. Bush takes part in the ALS ice bucket challenge, designed to raise money and awareness for the neurodegenerative illness Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) which is also known in the UK as Motor Neurone Disease (MND). Wife of the former president Laura Bush, took the pleasure of dumping the cold water onto George. He took the opportunity to challenge another former president Bill Clinton, to take part in the challenge. - United States - Thursday 21st August 2014
The Ice Bucket Challenge has claimed another victim. Sorry, *eager volunteer*.
The ALS Ice Bucket challenge is getting out of hand now. The latest celebrity/victim to take the online challenge in aid of ALS disease is *dramatic pause* former US president George W. Bush. We’ve seen a lot of the more free-spirited sides of George W. since the end of his presidency in 2008, but this takes it to a whole new level.
If you don’t know about the Ice Bucket Challenge yet, first of all, you poor thing, is there fresh water on that deserted island where you’re stranded? Second, how are you even reading this. And third, here’s some background on the whole thing.
Robert Redford and Cate Blanchett are in talks to play Don Rather and Mary Mapes in an upcoming, although currently unfinanced, film focussing on the 'Rathergate' scandal. James Vanderbilt, screenwriter of The Amazing Spiderman, is set to make his directional debut with the political thriller.
It's only been ten years since Don Rather reported on a CBS news programme about the Killian documents, which supposedly showed how former President George W. Bush managed to avoid serving his National Service in Vietnam. A film on the subject, and Rather's subsequent departure from the network, is in the works and Robert Redford is currently in talks with producers to play Rather. Cate Blanchett is also thought to be in negotiations to play Mary Mapes, Rather's producer, as Deadline reports.

Who'd want to kill Bush!?
What assassination? Bush is in a confident mood
According to a federal court complaint filed buy the U.S. District Court in Manhattan, Benjamin Smith threatened to "kill, kidnap and inflict bodily harm" on Bush and professed his love for Barbara, one of Bush’s twin daughters. As Smith – a resident of upstate New York - was being arrested, he screamed "Bush will get his” according to the complaint.
We predict that painting of Leno's head is worth... $56 bucks.
To be fair to ol’ George Bush, there aren’t any Presidents that aren’t maligned, but his was a special breed of maligned; every ridiculous sentence that came out of his mouth contained something worth satirizing, assuming he hadn’t managed to do it himself.
And now that he’s out of office, the 67-year-old has decided that painting is the best thing for him to do. He actually took up the hobby soon after he left office, and even hired a teacher to help him hone his craft. "There's a Rembrandt trapped in this body. Your job is to find it,” he told his teacher, Bush revealed while talking to Jay Leno.
Bush shared a painting of his dog Barney and a stray cat that he adopted called Bob, but it was a portrait of Jay Leno that really stole the show. "I can't make fun of him now,” announced the veteran talk show host after seeing his already ridiculous face in an even more absurd format.

George W Bush paints a portrait for TV host Jay Leno and admits that "Eight years [was] plenty" while been asked if he misses Politics.
Former President of the USA, George W Bush, recently appeared on Jay Leno's 'The Tonight Show' in a much less serious mood than the public are used to. Bush, who visited the chat show on Tuesday (Nov 19th), used this opportunity to showcase a talent that many probably didn't even know he had.
George W Bush is now a painter
The conversation was focused on the legacy George left behind and what he does while keeping a low profile since exiting the White House in 2009.
First Grandchild for former President
Congratulations to Jenna Bush Hager who has given birth to her first child!
We weren’t sure who she was either. But that was a bit silly of us because she is of course the granddaughter of the last US president George W Bush! In fact, the news was announced by the former Prez, managing to do so without making any cock-ups, promising war on any developing nations or debating humanity’s co-existence with fish. Good work George. "Laura and I are thrilled to announce the birth of our grandchild, Margaret Laura 'Mila' Hager," the former president and his wife said in a joint statement released on Sunday (April 14, 2013). The statement went on to say: "Mila, daughter of Jenna and Henry Hager, is named for her grandmothers. She was born last night, April 13, at 8:43 p.m. in New York City." Furthering, it said: "We met our beautiful granddaughter today. Jenna and Mila are healthy. And our family is elated."
It had been announced that Hager was expecting back in December, according to E! Online, which makes the tot the former President and First Lady’s first grandchild, and the first niece for Jenna’s twin Barbara. Jenna married Henry back in 2008.

Former President George W. Bush and wife Laura Bush have become grandparents for the first time.
Former President of the United States George W. Bush and his wife Laura became new grandparents on Saturday (April 13, 2013) when their daughter Jenna Hager gave birth to a daughter, named Mila. The Bush's first grandchild was born shortly before 9pm in New York City, reports ABC News.
"Laura and I are thrilled to announce the birth of our grandchild, Margaret Laura 'Mila' Hager. Mila, daughter of Jenna and Henry Hager, is named for her grandmothers," Bush said in a statement. "We met our beautiful granddaughter today. Jenna and Mila are healthy. And our family is elated." The Bush family will be out in force later this month to celebrate the dedication of the George W. Bush Presidential Center at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas, on April 25.
The birth comes in the same week that George W. Bush gave a rare interview, discussing his legacy and suggesting he was "confident the decisions were made the right way" while he was President of the United States. Bush reiterated his support from the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq and reflected on the "realities of the situation 10 years ago." The former President noted "it's easy to forget what life was like when the decision was made," though said he regretted his failure to overhaul Social Security and immigration policy.

George W. Bush's truck - a 2009 Ford F-150 King Ranch SuperCrew - has sold for $300,000 at auction, to raise money for a house charity that benefits U.S. military families. The white pickup truck was sold as part of the Barrett-Jackson auction house's sale of collectible cars in Scottsdale, Arizona.
The former President and his wife Laura Bush used the pickup at their ranch in Crawford, Texas, where they would frequently entertain guests, family and visiting dignitaries. "I haven't driven on a street in many, many years, but I have been able to drive this truck on my ranch," Bush said in a statement. To add value to the auction, President Bush signed the right airbag panel of the vehicle and the anonymous buyer also received a video of Bush driving the truck around his ranch, situated about 120 miles from his Dallas home. Proceeds from the sale benefit the Fisher House Foundation, a charity that provides free houses for families of military service members who are receiving medical treatment, according to MSN.com.
The question is, which vehicle would you rather own - George Bush's pickup truck, or the BATMOBILE? The latter - driven by Adam West in the original Batman TV series - was sold at the same auction for $4.6 million! It ties the record for the highest selling movie of TV car at auction, with Sean Connery's famous Aston Martin DB5 from Goldfinger going for the same amount in 2010.

HBO have confirmed that a documentary surrounding the powerful political figure, Bill Clinton, will be directed by Martin Scorsese. There is, however, no confirmed date as to when it will air, neither is there a title.
"A towering figure who remains a major voice in world issues, President Clinton continues to shape the political dialogue both here and around the world," Scorsese said in a statement. "Through intimate conversations, I hope to provide greater insight into this transcendent figure." Scorsese has forged a close working relationship with HBO, working on two separate documentaries with them, as well as with the entertainment side of their broadcasting, as he helmed the pilot episode of Boardwalk Empire, which has recently wrapped up its third season, with more on the way. Scorsese, of course, brings a wealth of moviemaking prowess with him, which will transform any documentary into a cinematic event as well as a fact-telling endeavour. As was the case with 41 - the doc about George H.W. Bush, which premiered last summer - Clinton's will be made with his full cooperation.
"I am pleased that legendary director Martin Scorsese and HBO have agreed to do this film," President Clinton added. "I look forward to sharing my perspective on my years as President, and my work in the years since, with HBO's audience."
Jenna Bush Hager has become the latest high profile celebrity to become knocked up, with her former President father George Bush reported to be delighted with the news.
The former first daughter of President Bush took to the 'Today' show on NBC to reveal the exciting news. "We're so excited and obviously nervous," she confessed. "I'm a first time mom. This is something I've always wanted. I'm a teacher and I love kids." Jenna was surprised on the show by her husband of four years Henry Hager who presented her with a bunch of flowers. The show also rang up her mother and father who 'thrilled' for their daughter. "We're thrilled, we're just absolutely thrilled," said Barbara Bush. "I'm thrilled for Jenna and Henry and thrilled for George and me to have the grandchildren that we've been really looking forward to." The former president admitted that he was "fired up" about the news and is looking forward to telling all his friends.
Jenna, whose baby is due in Spring next year, revealed that they attempted to keep the news a secret for as long as possible. "We've been able to keep it a secret and just us - it's so sacred - for a pretty long time, longer than most, but obviously, I'm going to start getting bigger and bigger," she said.
