  During Thursday Night Football, Untitled Worldwide debuted a commercial for Game of War, one of the biggest mobile games in the world. The commercial features Kate Upton as Athena, the goddess of wisdom and war. She doesn’t say much in the thirty second spot but her appearance speaks volumes about the seriousness of Game Of War’s ad campaign. A campaign they reportedly spent $40 million on. “

Government Waste Includes Swedish Massages For Rabbits, Monkey Gambling Lessons

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

” More than a dozen lucky rabbits were given Swedish massages four times a day, courtesy of U.S. taxpayers, as part of a study to figure out whether massage can help recovery times after strenuous exercise — a practice Sen. Tom Coburn says makes a mockery of federal spending.

  The rabbit massages are one of the hundred wasteful products Mr. Coburn, an Oklahoma Republican, identified in his latest edition of the Wastebook, an annual compendium of the ridiculous and outrageous items in government spending, which he is releasing on Wednesday.”

 

 

If you think Swedish massage for rabbits is absurd get a load of these expenditures …

 

 

” Other highlights included the National Science Foundation paying academics to teach monkeys to gamble, government sponsorship of a children’s play about brain-eating zombies and a first-person combat shooting video game the Army developed — but which intelligence officials fear terrorists could use to train their own recruits. Indeed, Hezbollah has adapted the game’s design to train suicide martyrs.

  Mr. Coburn’s investigators also found scientists putting mountain lions, monkeys, rats and cows on treadmills. That’s reminiscent of a previous famous item Mr. Coburn spotted that involved sticking shrimp on a treadmill to try to see if tired shrimp were less healthy. “

France Bans Ketchup

 

 

    Yes readers , apparently French culture is such a delicate flower that the authorities felt the need to protect their citizens from the well known effects of addiction to the famous American condiment . We guess the “haughty French looking” Senator , er , Secretary of State John “Heinz” Kerry does not wield the clout his shrew of a wife would prefer .

Teenager Charged In Family Killings Planned More Carnage

 

 

 

” Houston said Griego told police that after killing his family at their Albuquerque home on Saturday, he reloaded and planned to go to a nearby Wal-Mart store. “He contemplated ending this with mass destruction,” Houston said.

Instead, the 15-year-old spent time with his girlfriend, and the pair later went to a church where his father once worked as a pastor. A staff member called police, Houston said.

The teenager told police he shot his mother, the first victim in his rampage, because he was “frustrated” with her, Houston said.

Police said that after shooting his brother and two sisters, Griego then waited five hours for his father to return from work and ambushed him …

Police said that after the killings, Griego sent his 12-year-old girlfriend a picture of his mother’s body and the two then spent the day together, possibly planning to kill her parents. Charges may also be brought against the girlfriend, Houston said.”
