Video Of Barack Obama Looking for Some “Ass” To “Kick” – Just yesterday (I think) we told you about Barack Obama looking to “kick some ass.” I thought it was a fairly big story and it looks like I was right – turned on CNN and it’s like Obama and Ass everywhere! It’s actually pretty hilarious – the leader of the free world going around kicking ass. Obama kicks it, Zuma taps it. All of it. [yourface]
Lavish Praise For New iPhone – iPhone 4 reviews are streaming in! Steve Jobs boldly claims his new gadget will “change everything–all over again.” So will it? Although they have mixed feelings about the phone’s glass exterior, reviewers have thus far heaped praise on Apple’s “totally new animal,” which has been called “so thin it’s kind of mind-boggling,” “elegant,” and even “sexy.” [huffers]
Whatya Got Under That Burqa? – Remember when old white dudes used to sit around in places like 19th century Egypt and pontificate on questions like “why are the Muslim people so backwards?” and “I wonder what that woman looks like under that veil?

Saudi Clerics Call For Adult Breast-Feeding – In a surprising development, two senior Saudi clerics today said that Saudi Arabia’s women should give their breast milk to male colleagues and acquaintances in order to safeguard the Islamic law that forbids mixing between the sexes.

God Kills Woman Before Man Proposes – In a fiery twist of fate, Richard Butler lost his future wife after she was struck by lightning. They were hiking to the top of a hill, where he planned to propose. But then… BANG! The big question is, did God do it because he knew she would be a complete handful later in life? Or did God know she would say no, and wanted to save our boy the pain? I tell you, the Lord works in mysterious ways! [guardian]
LA Closes Down 439 Medical Marijuana Shops – While everyone is carrying on about some silly oil spill, a far bigger disaster is underway in Los Angeles, as 439 medical marijuana shops have been ordered to close. Why are they doing this, you ask? I have the same questions, my friend. And, more importantly, what am I going to do next time I’m in Marina del Rey? [time]

Grace Jone’s Ripoff, Lady Gaga, Releases New Video – Mask and hat woman unleashed a video today for her track “Alejandro” — and while the ditty is a Spanish-style salute to intense suitors everywhere, the visuals are more on par with a band of methadone patients traveling the Eastern Bloc with a production of “Cabaret.” Ooh, quick Gaga, put on a crazy mask and show us your vagina!
