Mike Walker's Gossip Game

Howard got Mike Walker of The National Enquirer on the line, as he does every Thursday, to play "The Gossip Game," in which Mike reads four gossip items – three (allegedly) true, one false – and the crew has to guess the fake. Mike then read this week's stories:


1. The Jonas Brothers escaped rabid fans by donning Disney costumes.
2. Jennifer Aniston is smoking again.
3. George Clooney ditched his ex-girlfriend after she tried to cut back the tips he gives his help.
4. A disheveled Al Pacino was mistaken for a bum at a luxury hotel.
Howard and Robin thought the Clooney item was suspicious, Artie went with the Pacino story, and Fred claimed to have heard a strange note in Mike's voice when he read the first item. Mike then confirmed Fred's suspicions, giving the manic Martian his second victory of the day.
