It's snowing in Vegas?

Drew Peterson is engaged to be married?

Our governor got caught trying to sell Obama's senate seat and won't resign or be impeached?

Thank God there's still things like this to make me laugh.

I saw this sign in a laundromat window on Broadway in Rogers Park. For $1.99, they will give you one quick exhalation of breath. They're pretty good at it. You'll need to spend the .99 to get your shirt clean.


Yesterday, I asked...

"The parents of a three-year-old were denied by a New Jersey supermarket to put the boy's full name on his birthday cake because his name is what?"

38% said "Ben Ladin"
- Who just happens to be best friends with Al Queda.

23% said "Jesus Satan Johnson"
- You can call him Mike.

9% said "Sadam Hussein Mitchell"
- Such an unfortunate last name.

30% got it right with "Adolph Hitler Campbell"

According to The Associated Press, a supermarket is defending itself for refusing to a write out 3-year-old Adolf Hitler Campbell's name on his birthday cake. Deborah Campbell, 25, of nearby Hunterdon County, N.J., said she phoned in her order last week to the Greenwich ShopRite. When she told the bakery department she wanted her son's name spelled out, she was told to talk to a supervisor, who denied the request.

Karen Meleta, a ShopRite spokeswoman, said the store denied similar requests from the Campbells the last two years, including a request for a swastika.

"We reserve the right not to print anything on the cake that we deem to be inappropriate," Meleta said. "We considered this inappropriate."

The Campbells ultimately got their cake decorated at a Wal-Mart in Pennsylvania, Deborah Campbell said Tuesday.

Heath Campbell said he named his son after Adolf Hitler because he liked the name and because "no one else in the world would have that name."

The Campbells' two other children are named JoyceLynn Aryan Nation Campbell, who turns 2 in a few months, and Honszlynn Hinler Jeannie Campbell, who will be 1 in April.

I wish I were joking about the names of the other kids. It's where I was going to go to find a joke in this. Yikes! The good news is, kids grow up to rebel against their parents. Little Adolph could be the next Ghandi. But hopefully he won't give his kids names like Mother Teresa or Buddha.
