What else, oh yeah...

So Starbuck’s profits dropped 97% in 4th quarter. No, that’s not bad news, that’s actually a bottoming-out milestone for the company. Let’s celebrate with coffee! From Paul McCartney to serving breakfast pastries and smoothies. Hmmm. Just like Dunkin’ Donuts makes. Maybe the problem is that everyone else caught up with them. Nah. That couldn’t be it.

When Obama and Bush first met way back, things didn’t go as smoothly as planned when Bush offered him hand sanitizer. Still, could’ve been worse: he could’ve offered him a condom. Now after yesterday’s meetings, looks like Barack was measuring curtains during the visit. Hey, new guy gets to do what he wants.

Puns are dead? Say it ain’t so. Okay. It ain’t, not at Philips Bodygroom Manalogues. They missed the chance at a few more though: Instead of calling it a website, should be the testosteroom, where we don’t do trimming—we do manscaping. I feel better now.

It’s a user-generated promotional partner orgy as Intel, Dell, Autodesk, Facebook, Reel FX and Aniboom offer viewers a chance to animate part of a new film. Cool news for animators. Whole thing’s moving to the point where studios will eventually dump all their scenes on Facebook anyway so you can make your own happy ending(s).

Checks and balances—why Fox News gets to stay. As Thomas Jefferson said, he preferred newspapers without a government to a government without newspapers. Wait, that was before getting burned by the press. What he really meant was that “The man who reads nothing at all is better educated than the man who reads nothing but newspapers.” Look at Tommy Boy flip-flopping!
