Art Bell's Pizza Punch???

Radio talk show host Art Bell is now a food baron, lending his name to a new food product oddly named "Art Bell's Pizza Punch". Literal sort that I am, my first thought was that it was a pizza-flavored drink. My second thought was, "ewww".

But, as it turns out, it's a seasoning you sprinkle on top of your pizza. The "punch" part refers to the kick it renders to your pie or something. Or, maybe it's a condiment. I can't really tell because his site is currently down, and I got that from the cache. It also somehow involves olives, because he's partnering with an olive company to make the product.

Wikipedia: Sinbad not dead; perps located?

Someone edited the entry on comedian/movie star/celebrity Sinbad to claim that he'd died of a heart attack. In fact, after an avalanche of phone and email messages received from grieving fans (or just a fan sending multiple copies), Sinbad announced that, while his career may be on life support, he's still very much alive.

I did a little snooping, and I discovered that this is part of a fun game:

Don't go fly a kite... in Pakistan!

In the Basant Festival in Lahore province in Pakistan, kite flying is a fun endeavor enjoyed by young and old. Unfortunately, 11 of them are dead, due to:

- stray bullets

- sharpened kite-strings

- electrocution

- people falling off rooftops

Degreed dog gives court... paws!

From this:

An attorney challenging the authority of the city's police chief wants the department's police dog to appear in court as an exhibit, because he says the dog and the chief have criminal justice degrees from the same online school.

The issue gives "one pause, if not paws, for concern" ab

UFO science could fight global warming!

Finally, a solution to the Global Warming Crisis that Al Gore can sink his teeth into. Former Canadian defense minister Paul Hellyer wants world governments to use the UFO technologies they've obtained from the numerous crashes:

"I would like to see what (alien) technology there might be that could eliminate the burning of fossil fuels within a generation ... that could be a way to save our planet."

Source: Tricorder development disturbingly ahead of schedule

Time Center sources were reportedly disturbed by news that Earth sources had developed a "real-life" tricorder.

Then, they all had a laugh, realizing that it was only being called that by Purdue Professor R. Graham Cooks:

"We like to compare it to the tricorder because it is truly a handheld instrument that yields information about the precise chemical composition of samples in a matter of minutes without harming the samples."

Al Gore wins Oscar! (An Inconvenient Truth)

In a shock announcement, the Oscar Committee - the group headed by Jeff Zucker and David Geffen and which distributes the Oscar awards given for best movie and television show - has announced that they've selected Al Gore's global warming documentary "An Inconvenient Truth" to win this year's globe. For tomorrow night's - at this point, purely formal - event, polar bears will be flown in from ice floes in Antarctica on which they've been stranded by a team of C-130 cargo planes, piloted by John Travolta and Laurie David.

It happened like this:

Britney went to Kevin's house in the San Fernando Valley last night around 7 pm and rang the bell at his gate three times with no answer.

Tire reefs: another "liberal" idea gone horribly wrong

Back in '72, Ray McAllister - ocean engineering professor at Florida Atlantic University - had a brilliant idea: dump used tires in the ocean in order to promote the growth of reefs. The reefs would lead to marine life, leading to fish and stuff like that. Goodyear donated tires, the ties to hold them together, and even used their blimp to drop a gold-painted tire into the sea as a ceremonial gesture.
