Mel Gibson’s Rants Triggered by a Placenta. Why Not?

The now-infamous February 18th phone call that’s made Mel Gibson a martyr amongst people who think Passion of the Christ is a true story and blowjobs enthusiasts everywhere was apparently triggered by an innocent event involving planting a tree in honor of his new daughter Lucia. And, okay, maybe a placenta or two. You honestly can’t expect him to keep track of these things. He’s a very busy man with a lot of fellatio not on his plate. TMZ reports:

But that’s not all that went in the ground that day — sources close to Oksana tell us the couple also buried the placenta from the birth of their then 3-month-old daughter Lucia … a tradition in some parts of Australia … where Mel grew up.
We’re told Mel did this placenta ceremony for all of his children.
The source also says during the ceremony the gardener made an innocent comment and Oksana smiled at him. We’re told that’s what set Mel off.

Two things:

1. Why do rich, married guys always hire handsome gardeners? If I was an insecure dude like Mel Gibson, my entire landscaping team would look like George Lopez shoved fertility drugs into Snooki until she birthed him a litter.
2. I’m going to assume the source is from Oksana’s camp, so this “innocent comment” might not have been so innocent after all. I’m thinking something along the lines of, “He buries placentas like a Jew. Thanks for all the head last night.”
