So, apparently Sarah Palin's a hot property in the world of social media. So why not launch her own internet channel?
For those of you who want 24/7 access to the former governor of the 49th state and John McCain's game-changer – don't everyone raise your hand all at once – you're going to want to sign up for SarahPalinChannel.com.
It went live on Sunday, and she promises that there won't be any of the "media filters" which her people disdain.
And you can get your browserful of Sarah Palin for just $9.95 a month, by subscription.
She must have gotten her inspiration from Vince McMahon's WWE Network, which is doing so very well.
Tamsin Wade is 19 years old and mom to a two-year-old in Suffolk, England.
After having her son, she found that her breasts shrank from their normal 32D to a 32AA. That also deflated her confidence, so she was reluctant to be seen in public, which meant she and her son never left the house.
So she did what any sane mom would do to get that confidence back. She borrowed about $8500 and had a boob job.
Now she's a shirt-busting 32G, and not afraid to pop out – um, go out – in public any more.
This, she says, all goes to make her a better mom. Good for her.
And, should she get pregnant again, her new boobs should only shrink down to a 32D, so she'll be back where she started from.
Win win, if you ask me.
When you visit Times Square in New York, chances are good you're going to run into a street performer in a costume you recognize.
Well, sort of. These aren't Disneyworld quality outfits – these are the worn-by-many outfits you'd find at the local costume shop around Halloween.
If you're not too creeped out, you just might want to take a picture with that character. After all, how many times will you be able to snap a picture with a superhero on the sidewalk of the Big Apple, right?
So, on Sunday, one such picture opportunity got out of hand. A woman snapped a shot with Spiderman and offered a dollar for his efforts. Spidey refused the dollar, demanding a larger bill.
A nearby cop overheard the conversation, and reminded Spidey that he could accept donations, but couldn't ask for money. And that's when Spidey hit the cop square in the face – with his fist, not some webbing fluid.
Spidey was carted off and charged with a variety of charges.
Wouldn't it be great if some guy dressed as The Hulk showed up to pay his bail?
Okay, so this is awkward. During a congressional hearing at the end of last week, Florida Representative Curt Clawson addressed two senior US government officials as if they were representing the government of India.
The officials, from the State Department, are Americans with names that sound sub-continental – Nisah Biswal and Arun Kumar.
Clawson – who's new to the House, having replaced another congressman who had to resign after being convicted of cocaine possession – asked Biswal and Kumar to get their government to lighten up on restrictions of investment of US capital in India.
The silence lasted for what seemed minutes. Okay, maybe not, but it sure felt like it. And Biswal let Clawson off the hook, saying, "I think your question is to the Indian government. We certainly share your sentiment."
I don't think I would have been that kind. I probably would have asked the chairman of the committee to slap the Gentleman from Florida upside the head.
Looks like Comic-Con was the place to be last week.
All sorts of trailers were released and enjoyed by convention attendees , including this one for the season premiere of Family Guy that has the Griffins traveling to Springfield and meeting the Simpsons.
What follows is a mash-up of epic albeit cartoonish proportions.
Check it out, and mark your calendars for September 28.
