I'm still trying to figure out how this is different from an oversized Blackberry Storm, except without the phone and camera and the double pricetag.

Note to diet groups everywhere: don't hold your meetings anywhere but the basement.
A Swedish Weight Watchers group got a sign they might want to lay off the meatballs, according to a local report Thursday.
When a group of 20 members gathered in Vaxjo, south central Sweden for their regular weigh-in, the floor collapsed, the Smålandsposten newspaper reported.
“We suddenly heard a huge thud; we almost thought it was an earthquake and everything flew up in the air. The floor collapsed in one corner of the room and along the walls,” a member told the paper, according to a translation on Swedish news Web site "The Local."
The smell of sewage quickly collected in the collapsed room. Luckily there was never any danger because the floor was only slightly above ground level, the newspaper said.
No injuries were reported.

And, of course, by terrorists, I mean PETA.
In a show of "good faith," the good folks over at PETA have agreed to pull the ad featuring Michelle Obama that I mentioned a few days back. Everyone can breathe easier now!
But, PETA has raised a far more dire concern that they expect the White House to look in to - the naming of a baby elephant. Apparently, the newest performer at the Ringling Brother's circus, a year old elephant who was born just minutes before Teh Won's Inaguration, is named "Baby Barack," and, damn it, if homegrown terrorists like PETA can't use a picture of Michelle, then evil circus folk can't go around naming their elephants Barack. You can't make this shit up, folks:
In PETA's view, the use of the Obama name by the circus is far more disturbing. In a letter Tuesday to the president, PETA President Ingrid Newkirk urges the White House to demand a name change for Baby Barack.
"'Baby Barack' is not even a year old, but his curious and energetic childhood has been cut tragically short while Ringling attempts to profit from your popularity by putting him on the road to perform in the circus," Newkirk wrote.
Norfolk-based PETA says the circus elephants are abused and the babies are taken from their mothers prematurely.
Vienna, Va.-based Feld Entertainment, which owns the circus, says its elephants are well cared for and add that using the name Barack is intended as an honor.

Sans commentary, because I'm lazy.

Fat peole kicked off dating website.
Personal fave quote?
"'Letting fatties roam the site is a direct threat to our business model and the very concept for which BeautifulPeople.com was founded.''
I think it's the roam that I find so funny. I have this mental picture of a herd of fatties trampling all over the pristine arugula fields. It's funny in my head.
Crappity McCraperson I can't remember the name of that chick that thought she was so much better than you. I know you Morons will remember. I have a sneaking suspicion she's a member of that site.
