ROGER MOORE's James Bond was more of a LOVER than a fighter . . . by one count, his Bond had 19 female conquests. And naturally, some of the Bond Girls from his movies have paid tribute to him.


Jane Seymour from "Live and Let Die": "I'm devastated to learn of [his] passing. He taught me about work ethic and humility. He was so funny, kind, and thoughtful to everyone around him . . . through his lifelong work with UNICEF he showed me the true meaning of being a humanitarian . . . He was my Bond."


Britt Ekland from "The Man with the Golden Gun": "My Bond is gone, [and I'm] filled with great sadness. Roger was the epitome of Bond, witty, sophisticated, elegant, funny."


Barbara Bach from "The Spy Who Loved Me": "It was a pleasure working with Roger, he was a kind and good man. A true gentleman. Peace, love and condolences to his wife and family."


Tanya Roberts from "A View to a Kill": "So sorry to hear about [his] passing. We had a lot of fun working together. He always had a joke to tell, and was a pleasure to work with. He was a terrific guy."


Maud Adams . . . the Swedish actress who WAS OCTOPUSSY . . . gave an interview in Swedish yesterday . . . and according to 'Google Translate,' she said, quote, "He was an amazing man, [and] one of the most beautiful men who walked on the Earth."


She also said it's probably been two years since she's seen him, but they've remained in touch sporadically over the years. Quote, "He had great significance for me and my career, and was a good friend. [This loss is] very sad."


As far as we can tell, Lois Chiles from "Moonraker" hasn't commented publicly . . . and neither has Carole Bouquet from "For Your Eyes Only", or Grace Jones, who was May Day in "A View to a Kill".


The original Bond Sean Connery said, quote, "I was very sad to hear of Roger's passing. We had an unusually long relationship by Hollywood standards, that was filled with jokes and laughter, I will miss him."

The NFL has earned the nickname the 'No Fun League' over the past decade, for increasingly going after things like touchdown celebrations.


Well, in a somewhat surprising turn, the league is RELAXING those rules . . . but only to an extent.


Commissioner ROGER GOODELL says players can now use the football "as a prop" in a celebration . . . they can celebrate on the ground, so "snow angels" are now legal . . . and players can do "group demonstrations."


If this seems a little silly, well, it is. But the ban on this stuff was also ridiculous.


Anything that resembles TAUNTING will still be penalized, including standing over an opponent. Prolonged celebrations that delay the game will not be allowed. And offensive celebrations will also be flagged . . . so that's anything violent or sexually suggestive, like TWERKING.


Pittsburgh Steelers receiver Antonio Brown seemed to question the twerking ban on Twitter . . . but I think we can all agree that this rule isn't the end of the world.


In a statement to fans, Goodell said, quote, "We know that you love the spontaneous displays of emotion that come after a spectacular touchdown. And players have told us they want more freedom to be able to express themselves and celebrate their athletic achievements."


Goodell even made a JOKE about the situation, Tweeting, quote, "Don't get any ideas about pumps, Keegan-Michael Key . . . they're still not okay under the new policy." (That's a reference to the "Key & Peele" excessive celebration bit.)


For what it's worth, Cincinnati Bengals coach Marvin Lewis is NOT a fan of this change. He said, quote, "I'm not for that at all. We had a good standard, and the whole standard has always been, you want to teach people how to play the game the correct way and go about it the correct way.


"That's not a very good example for young people . . . again, this is a team game, and . . . I don't understand why we want to give in to individual celebrations."

Throughout film history, local, state, and national governments have stopped movies from being shown in theaters. This may seem like a violation of a director's freedom of speech. But some of these movies have been banned for good reasons—others, not so much. In at least one case, the director decided to limit the viewing of his own movie. Regardless of the reasons, controversies over banned movies are intriguing and often create their own dramas.

At least 22 people were killed and close to 60 were injured after an explosion last night at the Manchester Arena in England, right after an ARIANA GRANDE show.


It happened OUTSIDE the arena at around 10:30 P.M. local time, as people were filing out of the building. Police are investigating it as an ACT OF TERRORISM, and it appears to have been the work of a suicide bomber. No one has claimed responsibility yet.


British Prime Minister THERESA MAY called it, quote, "an appalling terrorist attack." As of last night, there was no word from PRESIDENT TRUMP. But the Department of Homeland Security is closely monitoring the situation, and they say they have no information about a similar threat to a music venue in the U.S.
An 18-year-old man who was at the show told CNN, quote, "Ariana was off the stage, she'd finished her set. I looked around because I heard this big bang, people screaming and crying and flooded towards the stage."


Another witness said, quote, "It was a really big explosion. Everybody started screaming and running. There were people on the floor . . . There was a lot of confusion."


There's no word on the identities of the victims yet, but obviously, there were a lot of young kids at the show.


Ariana wasn't injured, but she Tweeted, quote, "Broken. From the bottom of my heart, I am so so sorry. I don't have words." And TMZ says she has suspended the rest of her tour for now. Her next show was supposed to be in London on Thursday.


On the plus side, there have been reports of locals opening their homes to people who need everything from a place to stay to just a cup of tea. They've also been helping reunite parents with their kids, and there may very well be plenty of people still looking for their children.


And taxis have been offering free rides to those in need.

For people who prefer their steak well-done, there's nothing quite as gross as seeing the blood drip out of a rare steak. But good news, that pink liquid isn't actually blood. Fox reports the liquid present in the meat packaging, and the stuff that trickles out after the meat is cooked is actually myoglobin, a protein that's only found in muscle tissue. Myoglobin carries oxygen through the muscle and contains a red pigment, which is why muscle tissue is red. As a steak is cooked, the myoglobin darkens, which is why the more "well-done" the meat is, the more grey it looks. Interestingly, commercial meat packers sometimes treat raw steaks with carbon monoxide to "lock" in the myoglobin and keep it looking a nice, fresh red color. (Fox)

Regardless of how you feel about hunting, you've got to feel like KARMA was involved here.


A 51-year-old guy named Theunis Botha from Tzaneen, South Africa is a professional big game hunter. He specializes in hunting leopards and lions and he runs trophy hunting trips for Americans.


Well . . . on Friday, he and some clients were out hunting in Zimbabwe when they came across a herd of elephants. Three of the elephants CHARGED at them, and Botha and his crew fired.


One of the elephants managed to get to Botha, though, and picked him up with her trunk. Then one of the other hunters shot and killed her, and she fell . . . RIGHT on top of Botha.


And he was crushed and killed.

Tough month as his partner was eaten by a Crocodile a few weeks earlier..

When you think of funerals you likely don't think of outer space, but maybe you should. Startup Elysium Space will soon be launching people's ashes into outer space. The pioneering memorial spaceflight company announced that its Elysium Star II craft will be on-board a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket. The startup is comprised mostly of former ex-NASA personnel and so-called "funeral experts." Once customers are registered, they receive a kit with a capsule for their loved one's ashes. This is then shipped to Elysium Space, at which point the capsule is placed inside of the spacecraft. After launch, the capsule containing the ashes will orbit the Earth for two years. Elysium Space also plans to release a companion app that allows customers to track the spacecraft as it orbits the planet. As part of this descending orbit, the capsule will eventually incinerate upon reentry, allowing your loved one to go out in a literal flaming ball of glory. There are currently 100 bookings for the initial Elysium Star II mission and the total cost to send a single capsule of ashes to space will be just shy of $2,500. (Fox)

Well this is certainly one way to fight the fight for gender equality. I'm not sure it's the SEXIEST way, but it's definitely a NOTICEABLE way.


According to a new study, only 77% of women under 24 now shave their ARMPITS. Just four years ago, 95% of women shaved 'em. And the percentage of women who shave their legs has dropped from 92% in 2013 to 85% now.


The main reason apparently ISN'T to send a message about society's beauty standards, though. A beauty industry expert says it's a response to women realizing a lot of shaving and hair removal products are bad for their skin.

We don't know this guy's name, but he's our "Badass of the Day."


A bunch of people at a Walmart in central Minnesota freaked out on Tuesday when a deer wandered in and started running around the store. (It happened in Wadena, about 150 miles northwest of Minneapolis.)


Luckily no one was hurt though, because a guy who looks like he's in his early 40's TOOK CHARGE . . . managed to wrestle the deer to the ground . . . and put it in an MMA-style HEADLOCK.


Someone posted a photo on Facebook where they're both lying on a big bag of dog food in the middle of the store.


If you're an MMA fan, he basically put it in a rear naked chokehold, with his legs wrapped around its body so it couldn't get up.


If you're a DEER fan, don't worry. They let it go outside, and it ran off.

According to a new study, believe it or not, you speak DOG. Or, at least, you can understand dog.


Researchers in Hungary found that people have a remarkable ability to figure out what their dog's different growls mean.


For the study, people listened to audio recordings of dogs growling and barking while they played . . . guarded their food . . . or faced a stranger who they thought was threatening.


And people correctly identified what the dog was growling about 63% of the time . . . which is higher than the level of random chance.


The researchers also found women were better at speaking dog than men.

If you're a drinker, you've probably had this debate before. Does getting drunk actually CHANGE your personality, or just exaggerate it? Here's some fresh science on the topic . . .


Researchers at the University of Missouri-St. Louis recently had more than 150 people describe what their personality is like when they're sober, and when they're drunk.


Your five personality traits are extroversion, agreeableness, openness, conscientiousness, and neuroticism. And most people said booze had an effect on all FIVE of those traits. So they thought it had a pretty major effect on their personality.


But then they had a few drinks, and the researchers saw almost no changes in FOUR of those traits. The only one it affected was how EXTROVERTED they were. In other words, they were more outgoing. But the rest of their personality didn't change much.


The researchers think being drunk might make you FEEL drastically different, but you're the only one who notices. Your friends don't see a huge difference.


The people in the study weren't THAT drunk though. They all had enough vodka to get their blood alcohol level up to 0.09. That's just over the legal limit to drive. So it didn't really look at how HEAVY drinking affects your personality.


If you're three times the legal limit, it might be a different story. Obviously slurring every word and wandering into traffic isn't "normal" for most of us.

If you thought drinking vodka with Red Bull gets you drunk faster than drinking other alcoholic beverages you've fallen for a marketing scheme. University of British Columbia researchers found that emphasizing the presence of an energy drink in a cocktail significantly increased how drunk participants felt, including risk-taking and sexual self-confidence. This was even more apparent in participants who already had a strong belief that mixing energy drinks with alcohol would have this effect. Study leader Yann Cornil says this belief is all due to the placebo effect because Red Bull has long used the slogan "Red Bull gives you wings" which can make people think the drink has intoxicating qualities.

You may not want to hear this, but maybe you should avoid that hot bubbling cauldron of bright orange nacho cheese at the gas station.


Five people have been hospitalized in serious condition with BOTULISM in Sacramento, California . . . and it's because they recently ate some contaminated nacho cheese at a gas station.


There were only 161 cases of botulism in 2014, which are the most recent CDC statistics . . . so five cases concentrated in one area counts as a pretty serious outbreak.


If you don't know the nuances of botulism, it's a serious illness caused by a nerve toxin that can cause trouble breathing, blurry vision . . . and if it's not treated, possibly DEATH.

A new survey by DealNews revealed 44 percent of parents will buy their mom a gift this Mother's Day, as opposed to 56 percent of consumers without kids. Benjamin Glaser, features editor with DealNews says the findings make sense as when you have kids of your own, your attention shifts from your parents to them.

There used to be only one major rule for Mother's Day: Even if you don't do ANYTHING else, you NEED to at least call your mom. Now, that might not be so true.


A new study out of the University of California, Irvine found that a Mother's Day phone call isn't that big of a deal anymore.


It's because cell phones have completely changed how adult children communicate with their parents. For previous generations, long distance was expensive and you could only call your mom when you were at home.


Today, long distance is free and obviously with cell phones you can make calls from anywhere. Plus there's texting, which is a whole new avenue to keep your parents posted on what's going on in your life.


So, because of all that, our parents feel like we do a much better job communicating with them than kids did in the past.


In other words, your mom might not even care if you forget to call her on Sunday. Although you REALLY still should.

The cover of the upcoming May 22nd issue of The New Yorker mashes up two big recent news stories -- President Trump's firing this week of FBI Director James Comey and a passenger being violently dragged off a United Airlines flight last month. The illustration shows Attorney General Jeff Sessions as a police officer dragging Comey down the aisle of an airplane, the way Dr. David Dao was dragged down the aisle of the United plane. Trump, dressed as the plane's captain, looks on. The image went viral, but Dao's attorney, Thomas Demetrio, doesn't think it's that funny, telling MarketWatch that while the cover's very clever, it minimizes his client's pain and suffering from the incident, in which he lost teeth, broke his nose and suffered a concussion. He said, "They must feel that Comey's exit was Dao-ish when in fact it wasn't," explaining that while lots of people have been fired, they weren't injured. However, he's not expected to take any action against the magazine.

If you're buying a Mother's Day gift online, make sure it's from a legit website. Mother's Day is a really popular time of year for fraudulent sites that sell STOLEN merchandise. And a lot of them seem legit if you're not paying attention.


All the graphics and ads on the site might look right. But instead of Zara.com, it might be Zaras.com with an "S" at the end. And their ads might even pop up on sites like Facebook. So be careful.


A fraud protection firm looked at data from the last few years, and found the top three fake and STOLEN things people accidentally buy their mom for Mother's Day . . .


1. Luxury watches and jewelry. For some reason Kate Spade is a popular brand for bogus websites. They buy the watches with stolen credit cards and sell them at a discount. So if a deal seems too good to be true, double check the site.


2. Vacation packages. Trips to Disneyland and Disney World in particular. Be careful if they want you to pay with Bitcoins, iTunes gift cards, or even through PayPal.


3. Clothing. Be on the lookout for sketchy websites that sell shoes, high-end fashion stuff, and expensive things like leather jackets.

Basically, they're a pair of men's basketball high tops that look like a dog ripped them apart. They're absolutely shredded. And they cost . . . $1,425. But hey, free shipping! Check them out here

For the past few years, Oreo has been releasing a huge number of different flavors. Some of them have sounded great, like Cinnamon Bun (my favorite) and Brownie Batter . . . but some were just too weird, like Peeps and Swedish Fish Oreos. Now, they're out of ideas . . . so they want US to do all the flavor thinking for them. Nabisco just launched a new contest where YOU can submit ideas for the next limited-edition Oreo. You can enter by using the hashtags #MyOreoCreation and #Contest on Twitter with your flavor idea until July 14th. Then they're going to narrow down the field and let the world vote. The person who wins will get $500,000 and Oreo will actually produce and sell their flavor. Hey! I know!! Lutefisk Oreos!!! Ok, maybe not. I'm sure you'll come up with a better idea.

It's no secret that massages provide stress relief, but a new study shows couples who skip the pro and instead massage each other can score those same rewards. The new, small study involved 38 people (19 couples) who all completed a three-week massage course. Before and after each massage session, each partner answered questions about his or her physical and mental health and had measures taken of their energy, irritability, mental clarity, mood, pain, emotional stress and physical uptightness. The researchers found that both partners' wellbeing, perceived stress and coping abilities improved after each rubdown. Those results remained even three weeks following the end of the massage training. What's really interesting, the study authors say, is that physical and emotional well being for both partners—the giver and the receiver—surged after each massage session. (Time)

There's a new, trendy way to prepare eggs. Cloud eggs are the latest food craze. The artistic breakfast fad involves a fluffy, cloud-like egg white, with the yolk served in the middle. The dish has also become popular with health fanatics, as it only comes in at approximately 161 calories. To make the Instagram-worthy dish, you begin by separating the yolks and then whipping the whites into a thick and fluffy consistency. You then place small piles of the egg white mix on to a baking sheet and into the oven for between five and eight minutes — removing then just before they start to brown. Once out of the oven, you add the yolk into the middle of each pile before baking for a further three minutes. Many Instagram users brand the eggs as "amazing." (Fox)

A 10-year-old girl was swimming in a lake near Orlando on Saturday when she got attacked by an ALLIGATOR. But she's alive because she's a total badass . . .


The alligator that attacked her was about nine feet long, and latched onto her left thigh. But luckily, she recently went to a wildlife park in Orlando called Gatorland, and learned what to do if you're ever attacked by one.


Most people would probably assume that poking it in the EYE would be your only chance. But she learned that's NOT actually right.


Instead she punched it in the NOSE, which is what you're supposed to do. That stunned it for a few seconds . . . and she was able to use her hands to pry its JAWS open and escape.


She ended up with some puncture wounds on her leg, but it looks like she'll be fine. Wildlife officials caught the alligator. Unfortunately it has to be euthanized.


Two experts from Gatorland posted a Facebook video on Monday, and said she did exactly what you're supposed to do if you ever get attacked.

Your personal style could impact your ability to land a date. New data from Hater, a dating app that matches you with people who despise the same things as you, finds you should never wear cargo shorts in your profile photo. Hater looked at male users in the top ten percent (who got the most right swipes, or were most attractive) and the bottom ten percent (who got the most left swipes, or were least attractive.) The guys in the lowest ten percent were fond of long cargo shorts, anime, Pokemon Go, and Windows OS. Meanwhile, guys in the top ten percent really like PBR beer, superfoods, the "Serial" podcast, and staying in Airbnbs. They also happen to wear V-neck sweaters, skinny jeans, and J.Crew.

A woman posted video of a cabin that was swept into rapid moving floodwaters in Northeast Arkansas. She talks about how it's coming straight for the bridge she's standing on, but doesn't seem too worried about it.


And rightly so, because the cabin is no match for the bridge. It starts breaking apart as soon as it hits, and comes out in pieces on the other side.

Another video of someone getting kicked off an overbooked flight is going viral. This time it was Delta. A couple and their two kids got booted off a flight from Hawaii to California last month, because their toddler was in a seat that wasn't assigned to him.


They originally bought the seat for their 18-year-old son, but he left on an earlier flight. And since the ticket was under a different name, Delta said the kid had to go.


They wanted him to sit on his mom's lap, but the dad kept saying it wasn't safe, and that they PAID for the extra seat. At one point in the video, he's told that if they have to drag him off the plane he could go to JAIL and lose CUSTODY of his kids.


The whole family eventually got kicked off and had to buy new tickets the next day. Delta issued an apology yesterday. They said they're refunding their money, and also giving them "additional compensation."

I know that everyone in the world except for us and like two other small countries uses the metric system. That doesn't mean it's right. And it just claimed another innocent American victim.


A guy from North Dakota had crossed the border into Canada on Sunday afternoon. And as he was driving through Dufferin, Manitoba, he saw the speed limit sign said 100 . . . so he went 100 miles per hour.


Unfortunately, he didn't realize the speed limit was actually 100 kilometers per hour . . . which is more like 62 miles per hour. So he was going WAY over the speed limit. (100 miles per hour is 161 kilometers per hour.)


A Mountie caught him on a radar gun and issued him a ticket for $940 Canadian, which is about $690 U.S.


But that's not all. Manitoba has a reciprocity agreement with several states, including North Dakota, so the guy's car insurance rates might go up from the ticket even though he got it in another country.

Wrong. It's making the Internet crazy.


Because after the guy cuts the watermelon into spears, he sprinkles it with salt . . . and TACO SEASONING.


The main reason people are freaking out on Twitter is, more or less, who the hell puts taco seasoning on their watermelon? This is really the whole scandal about peas in guacamole all over again.

How 'bout this, North Dakota?

And based on all of that, the most fun state is . . . Nevada. I guess that's pretty predictable with Vegas and all. But coming in at number #5? That's right, beautiful North Dakota! Beaches and weather couldn't have helped us, but Beer and Wine along with casinos and concerts...that's where we rock! I'm sure if quality of Classic Rock Stations was a factor, ND would've been number 1 baby!! GoND! - Waters

Another day, another salacious detail emerges in the fight between Johnny Depp and his former business managers.
We already learned that Depp spent millions of dollars acquiring a special cannon from which to shoot the ashes of his late hero Hunter S. Thompson (Depp claims $5 million, The Management Group pegged it at $3 million), relegated $30,000 per month to wine consumption and generally blew through about $2 million per month in expenses related to his several estates, cars, yachts, staff and high-flying lifestyle.
  • The latest fascinating tidbit is the claim that the actor possesses such a "clear and pic" sense of entitlement, he refuses to memorize his lines.
  • In a 38-page amended complaint, lawyer Michael Kump reportedly wrote: "Depp insisted that this sound engineer be kept on yearly retainer so that he no longer had to memorize his lines." And apparently, the sound engineer doesn't come cheap, demanding a salary reported to be well into the six-figures.
  • "It is not surprising that Depp would continue to concoct malicious and false allegations against TMG in an effort to stop the non-judicial foreclosure proceedings," the suit reads. "Over the last several years … Depp has engaged in a clear pattern and practice of habitually lying to the public and to public authorities, and of requiring others (including long-term employees, family and so-called friends) to lie on his behalf. This practice has become Depp's modus operandi when confronted with and asked to take responsibility for his continually outrageous and sad conduct."
  • The amended complaint arrives a few days after the Pirates of the Caribbean star sat down with The Wall Street Journal to talk about his legal battle with TMG, alleging his ex-managers essentially led him to financial ruin.

Once again, the Eagles are going to court over what they are saying is an infringement upon their trademarks. They've filed a lawsuit in a U.S. District Court against the Todos Santos hotel in Baja California Sur, Mexico, whom they claim are billing the property as the "Hotel California" without permission from the band.

Reuters reports that the Todos Santos, which opened as the Hotel California in 1950 and went through a number of name changes until the current owners restored the name in 2001, have been marketing their property as if to suggest the band is connected to it. This includes playing Eagles songs over the PA system, selling t-shirts that call the hotel "legendary" — as if to suggest that it was the inspiration for the song — and a website URL of hotelcaliforniabaja.com. It is unknown what their checkout time is or the quality of their wine list.

When you fly somewhere, the two things you HAVE to make sure you put in your carry-on are any medications you need, and a change of clothes in case your luggage gets lost. But here's one more thing you might want to toss in there . . .


A writer for "Travel & Leisure" recently did an article on why she always travels with a TENNIS BALL in her bag. Here's why . . . and anyone with a bad back might already know the answer . . .


A tennis ball is really good for giving yourself a massage when you're sitting down. Which is important, because all that sitting wreaks havoc on your back, and your leg muscles.


Even if you don't have a bad back, it's a good idea because it increases blood flow, which can help with jet lag. Plus it's small, so it's easy to fit in your bag.


Just put it behind your back . . . lean on it . . . and roll it back and forth. Or you can massage yourself by rolling it across your shoulders, legs, and feet. You should also still get up and stretch if it's a long flight.


If you DON'T bring a tennis ball, you can still give yourself a quick leg massage. A lot of people's legs swell up when they fly. So start at your ankles and work your way up to your knees.

1. There are three McDonald's locations that still serve McPizza. They're in Ohio, West Virginia, and Florida.


2. Disney decided not to make Giselle from "Enchanted" one of the Disney princesses because they didn't want to have to pay for lifelong rights to Amy Adams' image.


3. The Louvre was built in Paris in 1190 as a fortress in case the Vikings ever raided the country. It didn't become a museum until 1793.


4. The Bugatti Veyron sports car has a top speed of 254 miles-per-hour . . . and at that speed, it gets three miles-per-gallon.


5. One of the key ingredients in a lot of dryer sheets is . . . BEEF FAT. The dryer sheets are coated in beef fat to help make the clothes softer.

AC/DC frontman Brian Johnson is one of four people whose names will be added to the "Walk of Fame" in NewcastleGateshead, the combined cultural and tourist area consisting of northern England cities Newcastle-Upon-Tyne and Gateshead. According to BBC News, local residents of the area nominated Johnson and the others, voting for people who they felt made a significant contribution to the region over the past 60 years. The four new bronze plaques will join 29 others that currently make up the "Local Heroes" collection along NewcastleGateshead's Quayside Mile.
Johnson, who was born in Dunston, Gateshead, joined AC/DC in 1980 following the death of singer Bon Scott. He told us a while back about his audition for the group:
  • Johnson's first album with the group, Back In Black, is one of the most successful albums of all time, selling over 22 million copies in the U.S. alone.
  • Johnson has maintained his thick Geordie accent despite splitting his time between Florida, where he has had a home for the last four decades, and London.
  • AC/DC postponed the last 10 dates of its North American tour last year after doctors told Johnson he faced a total loss of hearing if he did not stop touring immediately. The band later completed the tour with Guns N' Roses singer Axl Rose as a "guest vocalist," although it does not seem that Johnson will return to the group.
  • Johnson said in an open letter to fans that he intends to solve his hearing problem and continue recording and touring, although he did not say it would be with AC/DC.

Your pet is certainly adorable, but are you aware of just how much it costs you? A survey of pet owners by Britain's People's Dispensary for Sick Animals revealed twelve percent of pet owners thought the lifetime cost of their pet would be $644, while a majority put the cap at $6,445. The real cost, however, is anywhere between $27,074 and $42, 545, for a dog, depending on the breed. That includes buying your dog, food, toys, grooming, and basic but not catastrophic vet care. And if you think having a cat will be cheaper, you'd be right-- but not much cheaper. A cat will cost you between $21,917 and $30,942 in its lifetime. (Newser)

There's a fundamental problem with a fork that's made out of French fries: You'll eat the fork. But McDonald's just went ahead and made it anyway.


McDonald's just invented something called the "Frork," which is a little red plastic handle, that you can shove three fries into to make a fork.


It's part of their pitch for their fancier "Signature" sandwiches. Basically, they're saying that the sandwiches are so good that you'll want to use the French fry fork to scoop up, quote, "every last bite" of the sauces. Or something.


Even they admit it doesn't make a ton of practical sense. But we're talking about it, so I guess it accomplished its goal.


If you want a Frork, you can get one by buying a Signature sandwich starting on Friday.

And so once again, it has come to this: We're quibbling about PENIS SIZE. At least this time, the dispute has nothing to do with our president. Just one of his most vocal celebrity supporters.


Last week ERIN MORAN's brother TONY lit into SCOTT BAIO for making insensitive remarks about her death. And in the process, he said Erin had told him that Scott had nothing to be proud of in the crotchal region.


Well, Scott's wife has come to the rescue with a Tweet saying, quote, "Why would a sister tell her brother about [the] size of [her] boyfriend's manhood? Creepy at best. [Scott] was a playboy for a reason!"


It's true, Scott has an impressive list of conquests, including Heather Locklear, Pamela Anderson, Nicole Eggert, Denise Richards, Nicollette Sheridan, Erika Eleniak . . . and even elder minxes like Beverly D'Angelo and Leslie Ann Warren.
