Farewell Four Loko; hello Willow Palin, and thank goodness for Pee Wee Herman

By Melissa Bell


A few delightful nuggets from around the web world today:

Four Loko
The Four Lokator was created as a tool to help college students get their caffeine fix in the wake of state bannings, but now that the company has announced it is removing caffeine from its drinks, the site has just one suggestion: "You should probably stock up no matter where you live before it's gone for good!"

The Palin Juniors
Bristol Palin's dancing either causes her fierce fan following to school the voting system to advance her to the finals in Dancing with the Stars or causes a man to shoot up his TV because he can't stand her style. Meanwhile, her sister Willow needs a lesson in Facebook decorum.

Women politicians
It was a successful day for ladies who legislate. Nancy Pelosi handily wonthe House minority leader role by a vote of 150-43 and Lisa Murkowski won the Alaska Senate race, the first write-in victory candidate since 1954.

Pee Wee Herman
And because I can never get enough Pee Wee Herman, here's a mash up of all his secret words. Don't know what a secret word is? Sigh. Here's some homework for you. See you tomorrow.

I love the phrase "Ladies who Legislate."

I still can't get my mind wrapped around that whole "Four Loko" business. It reminds me too much of "Buzz Beer" from the old Drew Carey Show. And although I am no fan of capricious FDA regs, I can see the dangers inherent in the product. Goodness knows what might have happened if PeeWee Herman were to have knocked back a few.
