In what may be one of the most ridiculous lawsuits in history, a woman is suing because

When I saw an online comic of Steve Jobs at the Pearly Gates and St. Peter checking his name off on an iPad, I thought it was a
sweet tribute. But now that the New Yorker is doing it as a cover story, many are crying out at the
religious insensitivity of it, since Jobs was a Buddhist (something I didn’t
know). Bill Maher predicted that the

A new online poll at Rolling Stone has named “We Built This City” by Jefferson Starship the worst song of
the 1980s. The only gay representation on the list was Wham! with “Wake Me Up (Before You Go-Go)” at #4. I’m

In what could be the most ridiculous bill that the Supreme
Court will be forced to strike down in a long time, Rep. Lamar Smith (R-TX) is looking to extend the Controlled Substances Act overseas

When Father Tony interviewed the cast of The A List: Dallas, he asked them
just how they were different from the original New York cast. Garrett Taylor chimed in “We’re
younger, hotter and have less wrinkles.” Thank heavens Father Tony focused
the rest of the interview on how hot and hung Levi supposedly is.
The new home HIV tests have been field tested to 99.2% accuracy, comparable to a

Fox News can’t seem to stop being offensive, even when they’re

nuts that causes people with a nut allergy to react doesn’t break down in the
body, and can be concentrated in male semen, so when the woman had sex with her
partner who had eaten Brazil nuts hours before, she had a
