Is it just me or is a pattern developing in the matter of slightly-ironic news when it comes to cable TV stars?

Steve Irwin -- Animal Planet star killed by animal while filming.
Dog the Bounty Hunter -- A&E star arrested for illegal bounty-hunting in Mexico.

I hate to be a cynic, but as these things usually come in threes, let's all speculate wildly about what the next breaking news to hit the web will be. This is just for fun and I do not wish anyone harm or bad luck.

Matt Stone and Trey Parker -- (Comedy Central) Get taken out by a normally peaceful Buddhist over remarks said in the latest installment of South Park, despite the fact that Matt and Trey attack everyone equally, though Jews and Christians more than others.

Adam and Jamie (The Mythbusters) -- (Discovery Channel) While trying to prove a fan-submitted myth wrong, Adam and Jamie quarrel over why Adam never cleans up the workshop after a project and Jamie finally just forgets to tell Adam to get behind the protective barrier during the last test of the myth in which they simply blow up the workshop altogether.

Anyone else have others? They don't have to be detailed.

For the record, I'm a HUGE fan of Matt and Trey and Mythbusters.

How about Mencia getting arrested for being ... so stupid? Heh, not sure if I'm the only one here, but I can't stand that guy. He's just not funny at all.

Or maybe Bill Nye. No idea why, but that might actually be kind of funny. Again like you said, I mean no harm here.

The Mythbusters ordeal you setup gave me a big laugh, I could just see that happening. But yeah, I'm a big fan of them myself.

So, can't really think of anything myself, but some of those you mentioned would actually be kind of goofy.

(Again, sorry I sometimes make excessive uses of the comma and my sentences are weird).

Paris Hilton -- When nobody liked her, she was at the top of her fame. After people start liking her (God knows how), she begins to think that she's losing her popularity and is driven to suicide.

Shigeru Miyamoto -- Nobody buys the Wii console (like that's gonna happen ) and due to a lost bet, he is forced to dress as a prostitute and perform in Bukakke every Saturday night at the Sony headquarters. (BTW, I'm completely pro-Wii)

The Sony Staff -- The PS3 sales are in the single digits, and due to a lost bet, the whole staff at Sony is forced to dress up as prostitutes and have to perform Bukakke every Saturday night at the Nintendo headquarters. (This one's more likely to happen, lol)

No harm here.... Well, except to Paris Hilton. Nobody likes you, Paris.

When I posted the situations onto LJ, I added that the only remnants of Adam that are recovered are his glasses and Indiana Jones hat.

I thought of another one:

American Chopper (or Orange County Choppers, as the show is often called) -- (Discovery Channel) During another one of Paul Sr.'s hissy-fits Paul Jr. finally just takes the old Ford Excursion and plows down the old man. Mikey seen in the background, giddily revving the engine on a bike and sticking paperclips up his nose while he's supposed to be welding an exhaust pipe.
