An airport in Orlando will open a $250,000 Muslim prayer room. I'm sure it's near the Christian prayer room and the Jewish prayer room.

After 63 years, the Washington Generals have been dropped by the Harlem Globetrotters. You can say "What a bunch of losers", but that was their job!

The Secret Service says it is going to hire 1,100 new agents. Well, that secret's out...

Disney says that Woody will find love in "Toy Story 4." So, you're saying Woody will get a... uh, girlfriend?

A new study explains why people believe in conspiracy theories. Of course, you gotta wonder who was behind that new study... ?

Fidel Castro says the U.S. owes Cuba "many millions of dollars" for the decades-long embargo. The grocery clerk he told that to said, "Whatever... "

The radio station keeps saying "traffic and weather every 10 minutes." Do they really think I'm that forgetful?

Starbucks adding real pumpkin to their Pumpkin Spice Lattes? What's next? Actually chicken in McDonald's Chicken Nuggets?

By the way, Donald Trump is now saying that, in Roman numerals, X is no longer a 10.

The New York Times wrote a pretty scathing article on Amazon. Pretty much assume that nothing will ever arrive in 2 days there again...

Washington Redskins quarterback RG III says he feels he is the best quarterback in the league. And that may be true, as long as you don't include winning games in the formula.

San Antonio says they are willing to host the Raiders on a temporary basis while they are figuring out where they will move, because San Antonio doesn't have a professional football team. Then again, neither does Oakland...

On Facebook, there was a quote where they were saying that they "disconnected their home security system and put up an ISIS flag up front. Now, the local police, sheriff, FBI, NSA, the CIA and Homeland Security are all watching the home 24/7. I've never felt safer and I'm saving $49.95 a month!"

Investigators say that Hillary Clinton's little blue hard drive that was hanging in the closet had been wiped clean. Obviously, a lesson was learned...

David Gilmore has officially announced the break-up of Pink Floyd. Well, as long as the Beatles are still togetherů.what?
