GOOD MORNING, BLOGTOWN! You can't finish what you start, if this is love, it breaks my heart. LET'S GO TO PRESS.
German police think they have arrested the porn star (AKA the "Canadian Pyscho") who allegedly dismembered his victim and sent pieces of the body to Canadian politicians. (Eeep. This could really give porn stars a bad name.)
A Nigerian plane goes down in a neighborhood, killing 153 onboard and at least ten on the ground.
The Wisconsin effort to recall dickhead Governor Scott Walker is neck and neck, and in it's final day, things are getting ugly. Shock.
The kissy host of Family Feud (and co-star of Hogan's Heroes) Richard Dawson has passed away at the age of 79. :(
Also sad! The Russian singer/internet meme responsible for "Trololo" is also dead at age 77.
Ben (of Ben & Jerry's Chunky Monkey ice cream) plans on arming Occupiers with a rubber stamp that can be used to imprint messages on dollar bills. "Down with corporate influence! Up with Cherry Garcia!"
Headline of the day (so far): "Florida Mom Arrested for Choking 14-Year-Old Bully Offers Advice to Parents." (Pause. Pause. Pause.) OH! Is it "don't choke kids"?
Did any of you watch Girls last night? IT WAS AWESOME!
Now here's what's going on in your neck of the woods: Cool and wet today and tomorrow, though Wednesday is looking up... kinda. It's June, everybody!
And finally, most studio audience members are boring and terrible. This guy is smooth and awesome. And he knows it.
