1. Bill Cosby Rendered Completely Mute By Uncomfortable Interview

Comedian Bill Cosby completely lost the ability to make word-like noises with his vocal cords over the weekend when NPR reporter Scott Simon asked him a question about the sexual assault allegations that have been welling up on the Internet this month. "This question gives me no pleasure, Mr. Cosby, but there have been serious allegations raised about you in recent days," Simon said during the interview. This was followed by silence, as Cosby was clearly struck by some sort of hysterical muteness due to the awkwardness of the reference. "You're shaking your head no. I'm in the news business. I have to ask the question. Do you have any response to those charges? ... Shaking your head no."
