5. Bernie Sanders, who was forced to address the question of whether he owns enough underwear.
On SNL this weekend, Larry David did a perfect impression of Bernie Sanders in a sketch about the Democratic Primary Debate. At one point, David as Sanders explains that he owns "one pair of underwear. That’s it. Some of these billionaires they have three, four pairs." The joke killed, and Sanders addressed the controversy at an event in Iowa City yesterday, saying, "Last week, I bought my second pair of underwear. That’s a joke. Please don’t write it down. I have an ample supply of underwear." So you claim, Bernie, but can you prove it?
4. Fake reviewers on Amazon, who are getting sued by the company for being fake reviewers.
Amazon, the extremely successful online retail giant, filed a lawsuit on Friday against 1,000 people who got paid $5 a pop to write fake positive product reviews. The integrity of user reviews is extremely important to the site, since they determine so much of what people buy. Wouldn't you rather buy an ice cube tray with 5 stars than an ice cube tray with 4 stars? If people start wantonly throwing around positive reviews, customers are going to get hurt (when their faulty ice cube trays crack). It's scary to think that we might not be able to trust strangers on the Internet.
