44th in the 49th

President Barack Obama has been busy this week, visiting the nation's 49th state and making some points about climate change in the process.

While in Alaska, he did some salmon fishing, taped a TV show with Bear Grylls, and visited some very remote spots - places they say no US President has visited before. It does not appear that he bumped into Sarah Palin at all - which would have been pretty darned intersting, don't ya think?

He's posting his own pictures to Instagram, and even videotaping his personal travelogue.

It's almost like he's auditioning for his own reality series.

I mean, he will be looking for something to do at the end of January, 2017.

Can't a Frog Get a Little (Green) Peace?

Poor Kermit the Frog.

He and his long-time beau, Miss Piggy, broke up over the summer.

Just another in a long line of celebrity break-ups this year.

He asked for privacy, but of course, you know the media.

Now, they're falling over themselves to report that Kermit's got the googly eyes for a certain red-headed pig named Denise who works in ABC's Marketing Department. She's undoubtedly working on the PR for The Muppets, which debuts soon on that network.

But poor Kermit. Now he's in a spot where he has to talk about his relationships - again!

You Have to Have a Sense of Humor

When you're a new mom, your body can do strange things to you when you least expect it.

Just ask Jennifer Love Hewitt. She gave birth to her second child, a boy, not too long ago.

On Tuesday, she headed out to a meeting, and her breast produced some milk that leaked right through her outfit.

She covered for it nicely, and even tweeted about it.

Check it out, and have a little chuckle. Jennifer sure did.

Vince Wilfork Texas Stylin'

HBO's Hard Knocks is in its tenth season of following one NFL team through its training camp as the players get ready for the full season.

This year, the show focuses on the Houston Texans.

Vince Wilfork, one of the biggest defensive linemen around, signed with the Texans in the off-season when the New England Patriots opted not to sign him up for another season.

The Hard Knocks folks caught Vince showing up at practice wearing short-legged bib overalls, cowboy boots and a cowboy hat.

And that's it.

The video will make you laugh - especially when his coach catches a glimpse.

Can I Get an Unsend Button, ASAP?

Here's one that's funny and sad at the same time.

A guy in Illinois interviewed for a job and was offered a position.

Somehow, when he got the offer, he managed to text two naked pictures of himself to the company's human resources manager.

She called the police.

When he called the next day to follow up on the job, she figured out the pictures had come from him, and the cops paid a visit.

He says he did it by accident. A police spokesman told The Chicago Tribune: "We're seeing it much more often now with our young people sending inappropriate photos of themselves. They're sharing it with someone else and the next thing you know it takes on a life of its own."

And in case you're wondering, the guy's back on the job market.

Which Fight Club Rule Does This Break?

Two daycare workers in New Jersey are facing charges after authorities learned they were organizing a fight club with the kids they were charged with watching.

The kids were between the ages of four and six, and cell phone videos posted to SnapChat by one of the workers show the two of them encouraging the kids to push and slap each other.

The whole thing got tagged with Fight Club because one of the two women referenced the Brad Pitt movie in one of her videos.

So, we know there are eight rules to Fight Club:
  • 1st rule: You do not talk about Fight Club.
  • 2nd rule: You DO NOT talk about Fight Club.
  • 3rd rule: If someone says "stop" or goes limp, taps out, the fight is over.
  • 4th rule: Only two guys to a fight.
  • 5th rule: One fight at a time.
  • 6th rule: No shirts, no shoes.
  • 7th rule: Fights will go on as long as they have to.
  • 8th rule: If this is your first night at Fight Club, you HAVE to fight.
How about a new 9th RULE: No pre-schoolers in Fight Club.

Works for me.

Kanye Wiggles

If you've got kids, then chances are good you know the Wiggles.

In the 90s and into the 00s, they were a very popular singing group that appealed to the pre-school market.

They had a TV show, CDs, and even a feature movie in the late 90s.

In my household, they were about as popular as Barney, the big purple dinosaur. My kids liked them. I did not.

That said, someone created a mash-up that made it on-line yesterday of Kanye West appearing to dance to the Wiggles' "Fruit Salad."

It's Kanye dancing in the aisles at the VMAs - lord knows to what - but it sure looks like it could have been to "Fruit Salad," don't you think?

"Not to Be Sexist, But..."

Star Wars has a Facebook page.

If you knew that already, you could be a Star Wars geek. But that's not important right now.

One of the characters in the much-anticipated Star Wars: The Force Awakens is Captain Phasma, played by Gwendolyn Christie who also plays Brienne of Tarth on Game of Thrones.

The Star Wars folks are having an art contest, inviting people to submit drawings of characters from the upcoming film.

Feeling inspired by Phasma? Your Star Wars: The Force Awakens-inspired art could land you a spot in a professional art...

Posted by Star Wars on Thursday, August 27, 2015

That's one artist's conception of Captain Phasma, and the reaction to it was pretty good.

Until one guy - probably one of those internet trolls - posted a comment:
"Not to be sexist, but it's really hard to tell that's female armor for me."

First off, nothing good is ever followed by the phrase "not to be sexist, but..."

Second, it's armor. Not designed to be curve-hugging. As the Star Wars pagemaster pointed out:
"It's armor. On a woman. It doesn't have to look feminine."

In order words, back off, Jack. Don't make me flick on my lightsaber!
