I have friends that won't eat pork because of fear that has been espoused and spread by the media. As it turns out, the H1N1 flu virus is no more virulent or dangerous than the common flu virus.

"McDonald's has recently launched a new interactive sign where passers-by can interact with images displayed on McDonald's giant LED screen, and visitors can take an interactive role at one of London's most photographed locations."

It ain't over yet. Stars at Monday night's annual Costume Institute Gala at the Metropolitan Museum in New York City sported a few, um, unconventional looks. Apparently, someone forgot to tell Roxanne that she don't have to turn on the red light.
We call this one: "The Bunny Ranch Madam .. and Her Bunnies"
I've always been of the opinion that if you name your band "The [something]," you will likely succeed. If you throw in a dreamy male lead singer with moppy rockstar hair, bedroom eyes, a tuxedo, and a voice that always sounds like you're singing from the back of a smoky bar room, you're surely on the road to stardom.
