    Taking a cue from Project Veritas, President Obama today announced that he was personally authorizing via Executive Order a new sign to built at the base of the Statue of Liberty. The sign will be the world's largest LED screen and will be visible to maritime ships up to 100 miles away. President Obama said that it will have an important message for all nations of the world as it states, "Welcome to America,...A Nuclear Bomb Free Country!" The President reiterated that he wants the world to know that America has no nuclear arsenal and that we are completely helpless...

  • Artist uses kittens to recreate classic album covers

    Yahoo.com ^ | 01/30/2013 | Alfra Martini
    As a musician, a co-founder of a record label and a vintage poster dealer, New York-based artist Alfra Martini is a woman of many musical trades. But in her downtime, the cat owner uses kittens as her muse to recreate classic album covers, and the result is rather entertaining. She first came up with the idea for her website, The Kitten Covers, while she was at home sick in bed, looking at old, iconic album covers online with her cat. She noticed the graphic, exaggerated style of art in the album covers, and immediately had a vision of David Bowie...

    As champions of both rear-wheel drive and the hand brake, we completely understand the compulsion to get sideways on occasion. Hell, there was a time when no vacant parking lot was safe from our hellion ways – but there's a difference between harming nothing but your own rear tires and putting an entire highway's worth of commuters in danger. That's exactly what a set of Orange County kids managed to do when they shut down what looks to be a six-lane interstate for the soul purpose of doing some donuts.

    The NFL has no current players and startlingly few ex-players who are known to be gay, but it appears ex-49ers and Raiders offensive tackle Kwame Harris, a former first-round pick, has involuntarily been added to the list as a result of the legal fallout from a fight at a restaurant. According to the San Mateo Daily Journal, a dispute over soy sauce at Su Hong restaurant in Menlo Park, Calif. last Aug. 21, has landed the former NFL player in court after he assaulted his ex-boyfriend. Harris pleaded not guilty to felony charges of domestic violence causing great bodily injury...
  • Obama Football Too Dangerous for Men, Women In Combat Not

    President Obama is praising the new Pentagon plan to lift restrictions on women in combat. "Today, by moving to open more military positions -- including ground combat units -- to women, our armed forces have taken another historic step toward harnessing the talents and skills of all our citizens," Obama said in a statement Thursday. Today, every American can be proud that our military will grow even stronger with our mothers, wives, sisters and daughters playing a greater role in protecting this country we love." Interview with the New Republic: "I have to tell you if I had a son,...

    Football's great and all, but not even The Big Game can match up with PUPPY BOWL IX! The Puppy Bowl has been a non-sports-fan tradition for nearly a decade now, and this year is proving to be the fuzziest, fluffiest, most adorably uncoordinated of all. Last year 8.7 million people tuned in to watch dozens of puppies flop around for a few hours. Ahh, the majesty of sport! The Puppy Bowl airs on February 3 at 3 p.m. ET/PT on Animal Planet.
