Not so fast

People can, and undoubtedly will, argue for some time about whether President Obama deserves the Nobel Peace Prize. Meanwhile, though, there's a simpler and more immediate question: Does the Constitution allow him to accept the award?

Article I, Section 9, of the Constitution, the emolument clause, clearly stipulates: "And no Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept of any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince or foreign State."

But this shouldn't be any problem for Obama with his cheerleading party controlling both houses of congress. They'll probably just tack this amendment on to the health care bill du jour with all the other pork everyone will attach to the bill.

There's some crazy whitetail hunters around here

Jarrette Schule was cutting down trees on his rural property Tuesday in Comal County north of San Antonio when he noticed a green metallic tube on the muddy ground.

“I had never seen it before,” said Schule, a 34-year-old Web developer. “I looked at it, and it kind of looked like a missile launcher.”

Schule took a closer look. It was a long, forest-green metal tube. A decal on it read: “Guided Missile and Launcher, Surface Attack.”

“I don't know if it fell out of something or if somebody just dumped it,” Schule said. “There's some crazy whitetail hunters around here. Maybe they're going overboard?”

That's Texas for you. Just like a whole other country. Maybe the launcher was carried just in case the crazy whitetail hunters encountered some bears?

In other news: Bears can open car doors

The car alarm was blaring, and there was a light moving around inside.

A couple in the Colorado Mountain Estates subdivision near Florissant thought someone was trying to steal their car early Wednesday.

When deputies from the Teller County Sheriff's Office responded at about 2:30 a.m., they discovered a young bear in the car.

Pro tip for those of you living in bear country, don't leave food in your car.
Once again the biggest threat to America is...bears.

Lou Albano, wrestling legend, dead, 76

The wrestling world has reportedly lost another legend as Capt. Lou Albano passed away at the age of 76. Fans viewing Percy Pringle aka Paul Bearer will find a sadding statement of Pringles prayers that were sent out to Capt. Lou Alboano's family as of 8:32 am this morning. We have not yet gotten confirmation from Capt. Lou Albano's representatives, so until then this is only a report.


I blame Walt Disney

FLORISSANT, Colo. (CBS4) ― A woman was gored by a buck mule deer after she tried to pet it near Florissant on Monday.

Joan Nutt, 63, was visiting her sister's home on County Road 31 around 5 p.m. when the attack occurred.

Family members said they were familiar with the deer and said it was a frequent visitor to their property.

Nutt apparently called the deer in an attempt to pet it. The deer approached, lowered its head and charged her.

A passerby witnessed the deer stomping Nutt and was able to scare it off and call the Teller County Sheriff's Office. After medical services arrived they reported the buck continued to come back to the area.

He just wants your corn...not your lovin'.

I blame Walt Disney or perhaps Hanna Barbera, for making people think animals are... well...people quite frankly. If it is not Walt then it's the school system. Somewhere these stupid people, who think the various animals that eat the corn they leave out aren't dangerous, have completely ignored most of the Animal Channel's programming and have a very suspect intellect. For the last time...ANIMALS ARE DANGEROUS. THEY CAN KILL YOU.

Don't feed the bears.

Risque ads: Live it up in Ky.'s 'Possibility City'

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- Want to live it up in a thriving metropolitan city and find a girl with a tattoo on her - well, in a strange place?

A recent ad campaign launched in Kentucky says all that can happen in Louisville. But some officials aren't laughing at the tongue-in-cheek ads boasting the benefits of "Possibility City."

People need to lighten up. Everyone knows this is a tongue in cheek ad to get people to come to Louisville. What kind of ads would these uptight dumbasses run? Glitzy pictures of the big metal bridge named for a dead president who never visited the city? A cheezy image of a couple sitting on the grass near downtown? A guy holding a fish near a stream? OH! I know, a picture of a street scene at night with lots of pretty lights!

Yeah, none of those have worked up to now. So how about some creative and funny ads people will remember. Go ahead and get your panties in a wad because you are one of the few humans that have absolutely no sense of humor.

More videos after the jump.

Nessy likes golf

(CNN) -- There's something lurking in the depths of Loch Ness, Scotland and it has nothing to do with monsters.

On a recent expedition to try and find evidence of the Loch Ness monster, U.S. research teams came across something quite unexpected -- not a prehistoric creature of the deep but thousands of plastic covered golf balls.

I want to believe...believe I can drive a golf ball 400 yards, that is. They are trying to say people are hitting the golf balls in to the lake, but I think Nessy is stealing them from the local driving range.

Yes, the Star Wars Tauntaun Sleeping Bag from ThinkGeek is an April Fools joke no more, as it will be available for purchase in November, priced at $99.99. For those who don't already know, it "looks just like a Tauntaun, complete with saddle, internal intestines and plush lightsaber zipper pull." Continue reading for one more picture.

Pure genius. If I were still a kid (okay if I was still little) I'd have one for sure.
