    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...

    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...

"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."

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.

    The University of Chicago Law School has decided to make a radical change to its employment policy for law professors. Because of the continued embarrassment the college has received from President Barrack Obama claiming that he was once a law professor who taught constitutional law at the University of Chicago Law School, all potential new constitutional law professors will have to pass a test on constitutional law and certify that they have actually read the constitution before being offered a position. Ivy League school law graduates will have to take and pass a remedial no credit course on constitutional law...

Wondered why aside from those posters that proclaim it hilarious and show us the incredible cast, you haven't heard hide nor hair of it? Well wonder no more, because the film has been released, and immediately nearly everyone who's seen it is kicking up a stink. The film consists of various short movies, acted out by its A-List stars, with a tendency towards gross-out humour as is to be expected with Peter Farrelly involved in direction. The amazing cast includes Hugh Jackman, Gerard Butler, Richard Gere, Jason...

Rand Paul (R-Kentucky). “The only way President Obama can remove that cloud is by resigning from office at once.”

    The grandaddy of cereal slogans is for Quaker Puffed Rice. The cereal is actually made using a process that resembles shooting rice from a gun. In 1904, Quaker introduced the cereal to the mass public by shooting Puffed Rice from cannons at the World's Fair. In 1913, an astute ad man decided to promote the cereal by exploiting how it's made and this famous, yet mostly forgotten, slogan was invented.

Another guy routinely says, "I'm looking down at the grass and not up at the roots." A couple months ago one little old lady deadpanned, "These are supposed to be my 'Golden Years.' The only thing golden about my 'Golden Years' is my pee." But this morning, I had a patient who said he...
