AstronautAstronauts may need to temporarily abandon the Space Station if last week’s Russian launch accident prevents new crews from flying.  Plus there’s that miserable feeling the last astronaut to leave has that they left the stove on.


 

Rosie O'DonnellThe children’s book, “Maggie Goes On a Diet,” is controversial, the story of an overweight 14-year-old.  Some parents want a boycott, saying it promotes eating disorders.  But it’s not nearly as controversial as the children’s book, “Rosie O’Donnell is Going to Eat Me.”


 

Richard SimmonsA Puerto Rico lawmaker resigned after explicit photos of him surfaced on an iPhone app for gays and bisexuals.  Sen. Roberto Arango says he took pictures of himself to document his recent weight loss…specifically for Richard Simmons.


 

polar bearA 16-year-old boy mauled by a polar bear in Norway says it chewed on his head.  The boy says he’s now rooting for global warming.


 

Joe JacksonMichael Jackson‘s kids and dad visited his boyhood home in Gary, IN.  The family moved from there to CA in 1969 after the Jackson 5 struck it big.  And, of course, after Joe struck the Jackson 5.

An IA high school wrestler favored to win his weight class defaulted on his first-round state tournament match rather than face one of the first girls to ever qualify for the event.  Most states require girls to wrestle boys.  Which adequately prepares them to one day be on Jerry Springer.


Experts say not enough people are taking the security of their smartphones seriously.  They suggest things like activating its password lock and making your password tougher.  What’s the use?  No matter what password I use, Watson the Jeopardy-playing computer will figure it out.


The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission is finding out hiring discrimination against the unemployed is running rampant.  They won’t even talk to you if you’ve been out of work over 6 months.  Apparently skills such as History Channel watching, wearing a robe for 4 days straight and staring at phones that never ring aren’t widely sought after.


The Commerce Dept. says up to 1 in 10 Americans can’t get Internet connections fast enough for common tasks.  And just 4% of libraries have connections faster than 25mbs.  Those living in rural areas without broadband can go to www.stickyourheadoutthewindow andhollerattheyoungnsitsdinnertime.gov.


Lonely astronauts on the space station may soon get a talking humanoid robot from Japan.   It would monitor their health and provide astronauts with “comfort and companionship.”  Anyone will tell you, when there’s a woman up there, lonely astronauts can be all robot-arms.

2 ancient animal bones from Ethiopia show signs of butchering by human ancestors, moving back the first use of stone tools about 800,000 years.  And only 1 week after that time period came the first evidence of infomercials.


Spacewalking astronauts used brute force to remove a broken coolant pump to restore normal operations at the Space Station.  It’s the same kind of brute force that was needed to remove Buzz Aldrin from “Dancing With the Stars.”


A judge is considering whether a Pittsburgh man can legally change his name to Boomer the Dog.  Gary Mathews is a huge fan of the 80’s show “Here’s Boomer.”  He fell in love with the wrong TV show.  It would have been much easier to get his name changed to “Alf.”


Famed British music producer Mike Stock says, ‘The music industry has gone too far.  These days 99% of the charts is R&B, and 99% of that is soft pornography.”  Which recent CD release made him think that, “Girl What I’m Gonna Do To You Is Illegal in 12 States,” or “What I’m Gonna Do To You Would Make Nature Nauseous”?


While visiting Epcot, a PA woman alleges Donald Duck grabbed her breast and molested her when she asked for an autograph.  After the groping, Donald made gestures “indicating he had done something wrong.”  Oh, I guess we’re not going to talk about what the Bill Clinton animatron at the Hall of Presidents did to her, huh?
