Scientists say that hair samples from what people claim are Bigfoot are found to be mostly from bears, wolves and Russell Brand.

The Census Bureau says that more than two thirds of all Baby-Boomers are overweight or obese. In fact, they say that half of all Baby-Boomers make up 2/3's of them.

Robin Williams was actually in rehab over the weekend, "fine-tuning" his sobriety. If nothing else, he saved a lot of money on fireworks.

It's that time of year when "50% off 4th of July" stuff is competing for shelf space with the "Back to School" stuff.

Congrats to the Netherlands for making to the semi-finals of the World Cup. As I like to say often, "Let's go Dutch!"

Conan said it: Why do we put all this pressure on clouds to look like other things? Let's let clouds be clouds!

With so many immigrants flooding into the U.S., does that mean the docs from Doctors Without Borders can just wait here for their patients?

A report says that Hollywood box office receipts are down 20% this summer. Yeah, the idea of a bad Melissa McCarthy movie was tempting... but somehow, I fought it off.

Legal marijuana went on sale here in Washington state Tuesday for the very first time and... something else...

Ironically, the first legal marijuana store in Seattle opened Tuesday at high noon. Sometimes they just write themselves.

OK, here you go, a collection of the jokes that resulted from Tuesday's whipping of Brazil by Germany in the World Cup:

  • What were the odds of Germany scoring 7 goals in the World Cup? A Brazilian to one.
  • I hope Germany's snack moms brought some really good treats this week!
  • Huh.....the goalie for Germany just filed for unemployment.
  • Nice of Germany to switch to playing only on one foot.
  • Just asking: Is there a 10-run rule in soccer?
  • This is that one instance where nill doesn't sound as embarrassing as zero
  • Apparently Brazil is Spanish for "Bronco."

President Obama says he will hire more people to guard our border! Unfortunately, the first who applied was the goalie for the Brazil soccer team.

So the current pope is from Argentina. The previous pope is from Germany. Holy World Cup!!! 

The experts say we could expect gas prices to drop by 25-cents a gallon over the next month. The oil execs should have their cars, homes and vacation properties paid off by then...

League City, Texas has voted to ban undocumented aliens from being housed inside their city limits. Needless to say, some of the messiest homes you've ever seen...
