Gadhafi wrote a 3-page letter to Obama asking him to stop “an unjust war.”  However, he refers to Obama as “our son” and “excellency,” and says Libya is praying that he wins re-election.  The envelope was even perfumed with “Tyranny for Men.”


 

Dr. Conrad Murray’s lawyer says Michael Jackson was so anguished about his deteriorating finances he took desperate actions that caused his own death.  Usually desperate financial actions just involve calling 1-800-Titlemax, but Michael took things up a notch.


 

A KS woman known as “Bunny Lady” had a run-in with a TSA agent in Philly.  Val Baul showed the agent what was in the confetti-filled eggs by cracking one over her head.  She was cuffed and held 3 hours.  That’s nothing.  You should see what they did to the clown that came through earlier with a seltzer bottle.


 

Some angry parents in VA are demanding answers after their elementary school kids were allowed to feel a breast implant on Career Day.  A local plastic surgeon brought them as part of his presentation.  But nobody cares that the high schoolers were allowed to feel them after they’d been put in?

Arnold Schwarzenegger says welfare recipients can no longer use state-issued debit cards at medical marijuana shops, psychics and other businesses “inconsistent with the program.”  That’s really not fair.  If you can’t use welfare dollars to consult a psychic, how are you going to know what lottery numbers to play?


2 PA dentists are offering a candy buyback program to save the teeth of young trick-or-treaters.  They’ll pay $1 a pound and the candy will be sent to US troops in Afghanistan and Iraq.  Children, however, must really want to make sure our soldiers floss, because that’s what they’ve been bringing and dumping at the dentists’ door instead.


TV Land is reuniting Mary Tyler Moore with her 70’s sitcom sidekick Betty White.  She’ll guest star on the second-season premiere of White’s, “Hot in Cleveland.”  Mary agreed to do the show mostly because neither Rhoda nor Phyllis have TV shows right now.


As part of a series of events commemorating the 25th anniversary of its arrival in Japan, Domino’s is set to hire one lucky person to work part time for them at $31,030/hr.  Which is actually what Ted Kennedy was trying to get our minimum wage up to back when he was alive.
