Exactly two months from today is Christmas Eve.  Just sayin'......

A new survey claims that 1 in every 10 people have had sex at an airport to pass time. And all this time I've been wasting money on magazines...

I can't believe we've gone this far with the Ebola thing and haven't yet reached out to Jack Bauer.

Billy Graham says the U.S. has become as wicked as Sodom and Gomorrah. Good reminder that if you're ever walking around and you smell brimstone burning, don't look back.

A Russian Nazi group held a "Miss Hitler" contest. The winner received 5,000 rubles and a chance to invade Poland.

The Pentagon just announced that its fight against ISIS will be called "Operation Inherent Resolve." Obviously, the name was chosen on the day the new Reader's Digest came in the mail.

The head of the TSA announced he's retiring. They plan to have a party for him and, before he leaves, he has to remove everything in his pockets, as well as his shoes and belt.

Starbucks is releasing it's first new drink in 5 years--the Chestnut Praline Latte--on November 12th. At last, the long national nightmare is over.

A semi-truck loaded with 44,000 pounds of Miller High Life beer was stolen in Florida.  The suspects have been described as armed and probably sleeping on the couch.

A study says that Gladiators ate mostly a bean and grain diet.  This explains why the most feared warrior of that era was named Farticus.

Scientists say they have found a method to restore hearing loss in mice.  Which is a good thing, since most can't afford hearing aids.

Up until this breakthrough, Mickey Mouse was just guessing what Minnie was saying.
