    When you fight the law, the law usually wins. A couple was arrested after their argument over who was the greatest guitarist of all time became so heated that Motel 6 staff was forced to call the Brook Park police. The boyfriend was screaming on behalf of Slash, lead guitarist for Guns and Roses. The girlfriend was jumping for Eddie Van Halen, namesake of ’80s rockers Van Halen.

    In what is probably his most laughable feat of demagoguery to date, President BHO tried to control the damage he'd done running his big mouth with the release of a photo you're supposed to accept as a proof that he "goes shooting all the time"—and therefore it's perfectly OK if he decides to rule out the American people's natural right to do so. At least that's out it looks like, seen from here. The White House warned that this picture shall not be manipulated in any way (insecure much Barry?), and that's fine by me. Photoshopping news items is so...

    Today FBI and Department of Agriculture agents raided a West side Chicago school. Agents arrested 10 juveniles and 1 teacher in a contraband food sting conducted at the school over the last year. The students were charged with operating a ring that smuggled Ding-Dongs, Ho-Hos, Twinkies and other contraband food items into the school. Since the school had banned these items from their menus and from vending machines, there was an underground black market at the school. Each day these students packed 4 to 10 contraband items in their lunches brought from home and auctioned them off to desert starved...
  • White House Responds to Death Star Petition (Almost satire)

    Paul Shawcross, Chief of the Science and Space Branch at the White House Office of Management and Budget, has officially responded to a November petition requesting that the United Sates government construct a Death Star by 2016. Shawcross stated that the White House would not be pursuing any Death Star construction projects, citing critical design failures: “Why should we spend countless taxpayer dollars on a Death Star with a fundamental flaw that can be exploited by a one-man starship?” The Obama administration also claims that the Death Star proposal would conflict with their core policies, saying, “The Administration does not...

    FEBRUARY 6--You know your mother loves you when she is willing to smuggle Oxycodone into the jail where you are incarcerated. Especially when she passes you the pills via an open-mouthed kiss. That is what investigators allege transpired last Tuesday when Kimberly Margeson, 54, visited her offspring in an upstate New York lockup. Margeson’s son, William Partridge, 30, was being held following a weapons arrest. According to a Yates County Sheriff’s Department report, Margeson put the Oxycodone pills “into her mouth and brought them into the jail when she visited her son.” She then passed two pills “from her mouth...

    Isn’t “the only defense for a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun” basically the premise for every Hollywood action movie? Well, I guess sometimes it’s “the only defense against a bad guy with kung fu is a good guy with kung fu.” In America, the president isn’t supposed to be like a dad. He’s supposed to be like a butler we order to do the things we don’t want to. The president isn’t the leader of the country; he’s the leader of the least part of the country: the government. He’s king of the...

    ANIMAL welfare extremists want to ban the display of naked chickens in supermarkets. They also protest against pictures of raw chickens in ads, The Weekly Times reports. The American founder of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, president Ingrid Newkirk, criticised a newspaper for running a picture of a raw chicken. "We don't want to see any chickens on display, but instead want them to live natural, happy lives with their families. "Sexily displaying the corpse of a chicken who has been bred to grow so big, so quickly, that many collapse under their own weight, is just additionally...

    Singer Tony Bennett brought up Nazi Germany at a press conference in Washington where he demanded gun control. TONY BENNETT: It's the kind of turn that happened to the great country of Germany, when Nazis came over and created tragic things, and they had to be told off. And if we continue this kind of violence and accept it in our country, the rest of the world's going to really take care of us, in a very bad way. Video @ link

    Thinking about injecting an identification chip in your pooch? If you live in the southern part of the UK, you won't have a choice. Come 2016, English authorities will require all of the country's pups to have embedded microchips, so they can be returned to their owners if ever they run astray. The United Kingdom's Environment Department says some 60 percent of the country's 8 million dogs already have the tags, but beginning in three years, owners who don't spring for the device could be forced to pay fines of up to Ł500 (about $780). Cat microchipping will remain optional,...

    PORT RICHEY, Fla. (CBS Tampa) – A local woman who took her daughter and nephew to play in the park one evening got more than she bargained for when a man approached them and claimed to be President Barack Obama. The man proceeded to call the female child a prostitute during the incident, according to WFTS-TV. The victim’s mother, 28-year-old Sharaya Smith, told the station that the attacker, Bienvenido Cintron, emerged from the bushes at Lake Lisa Park earlier this week and approached her and the two children. “He [said that he] was President Obama and he was here to...

    Jeremy Clarkson, the oft-offensive co-host of the long-running BBC car show "Top Gear," has frequently sacrificed his bod and critical sphincter control for the show's various challenges and stunts. Here we see Clarkson behind the wheel of the "smallest car in the world," a fully street-legal vehicle allegedly designed by Clarkson himself. Apart from looking hilarious, there are a variety of downsides to piloting the world's tiniest car, which Clarkson discovers in quick succession.

    Climate scientists, Drs. Mann, Jones and Hansen were nominated and approved for a Nobel Prize. The Drs. had written several manuscripts detailing climate change (aka global warming or new ice age depending on the time and rquirements). Wannabe self-proclaimed climate change expert Al Gore based his movie on the climate change trios manuscript. The Nobel prize science committee encountered several problems initially when trying to verify the data, models and results for the manuscripts. Their publisher, IPCC stated that they had no data, models or results for the committee to review even though it was commonly accepted that those items...
