Angry Birds Star Wars Looks out-of-this-World and Jedi-riffic
The Star Wars version of Angry Birds is now upon us, and it looks like people are loving it so far. And by people, I mean me and my colleagues at work. The Birds take their beef to outer space by battling the evil pigs that are all stormtroopered out.

I am, however, trying to lose weight, although I think I’ll stick to traditional exercises despite these new developments.

Man Divorces Wife for Being Ugly, Judge Awards Him with Damages – Wait, What?
