1. U.S. Government Refuses To Share Osama Bin Laden's Huge Stash Of Porn

Top U.S. intelligence officers have released a cache of documents recovered from Osama bin Laden's secret hideout in Pakistan, but they remain steadfast in their refusal share any of the vast quantities of pornography the al Qaeda leader had reportedly been hoarding. Total non-bro behavior, bros! Seriously uncool!


2. Rick Santorum To Bring Frothy Mixture Of Conservative Ideals And Populist Rhetoric To GOP Primaries

Former senator Rick Santorum announced today that he is joining the already overcrowded race to become the Republican Party's candidate for president.

Republican and Democratic lawmakers are reaching across the aisle in order to pass some extremely important legislation that could improve life for conservatives and liberals alike. The Distillery Innovation and Excise Tax Reform Act, if passed, will reduce the tax rate for liquor from $13.50 per proof gallon to $2.70 per proof gallon on the first 10K gallons produced. "There's a lot of red tape involved in getting a new distillery off the ground and this bill helps reduce that burden," explains Republican Todd Young, who co-sponsored the bill with Democrat John Yarmuth.

"Let me be clear: No, it won't. It can't. Worse, there's not even really an alignment on that date, at least not with the Earth. It's all baloney," astronomer Phil Plait declared on his blog. On the other hand, your dad's friend made a pretty good case for it in a Facebook post, so I don't know. Let's say 60-40 it won't happen.
