UConn equalizes penalties for on-campus pot and alcohol
UConn has reduced the penalty for being caught with marijuana. The new penalty is roughly the same as the penalty for being caught with alcohol. Marijuana advocates consider this progress, but personally I think smokers should be insulted that they’re being called the same as drunks. You won’t see a bunch of stoners flipping cars in X Lot this year, I’ll tell you that much.
Video-recording incident that sparked East Haven police scandal would have been a felony in Illinois
This is why it’s imperative that we don’t make recording police in public a crime. It keeps cops honest and ensures that no one is brutalized or discriminated against. Also, it finally gives us some entertaining content to watch. Have you seen network TV lately? I’ll take a pepper-spraying video over “Cougartown” any day.
Is Linda McMahon being encouraged to run again just for the cash?
Linda McMahon made a name for herself by running the WWE. That’s why I think she should win the Republican nomination this year. Then, after she wins, she should rip off her pantsuit to reveal a “Obama 2012” t-shirt underneath, and announce that’s she become a heel. Then she should hit Joe Lieberman over the head with a folding chair.
Girl Scout Cookie Bracket
It’s Samoas vs. Thin Mints in the Finals of our Girl Scout Cookie Bracket. Who will be crowned the champ? Cast your vote now and we’ll reveal the winners on Monday. Sadly my money was on Tagalongs, which lost in the semi-finals. So what do I do now? Same thing I would do if one of my kids lost a game. Pretend I never liked them in the first place and go eat my other kid.
The 15 Weirdest Super Bowl Prop Bets
Did you know you can bet on whether Kelly Clarkson exposes her bare midriff during the National Anthem? The odds go like this:
God no!!!! -170
Commentary: Even racists in the South and elsewhere worry about where their next paycheck is coming from
Newt Gingrich did well in South Carolina by rallying voters against strawman enemies, but the Florida voters believed that Mitt Romney had a better shot of beating Obama and turning around the American economy. They’ll be sorry when Mitt becomes President and outsources Florida to China.
Guy Sings His Sonic Order
I was really impressed by this video of a guy playing acoustic guitar and singing his order to a Sonic drive-thru worker. That must have been quite the experience for the employee. When I work at Dick’s Sporting Goods, no one ever sang to me. They berated me, threw their change in my face, and asked to speak to Dick – who I had to explain lived in Pittsburgh and died in 1981 – but they definitely never sang.
