America has lost the title of the fattest nation on earth. We are now only the second-fattest nation. We lost the title to Mexico. Isn't that amazing? We are so fat and lazy now that we're too fat and lazy to be number one at being fat and lazy.
According to The Washington Post, the NSA has been monitoring phone calls and emails of people in Mexico. So apparently it's not enough to spy on American citizens, they feel they have to spy on FUTURE American citizens as well.

Now that marijuana is legal in the state of Colorado, in Denver they're talking about taxing it up to 35 percent. Suddenly those drug cartels don't seem so greedy anymore, do they?

This weekend the movie "Pacific Rim" opens. Ocean monsters come out of the sea so we must build huge robots and they battle to the death. I'm telling you, I haven't seen anything like this since last Friday!
It's the sea creatures versus the giant robots. It's from the original play by Noel Coward.
It's the first day of Elvis Fest in Las Vegas. Today thousands of Elvis impersonators gather to swap stories, swivel their hips, and wave their adult diapers.
Psychologists say the cult of Elvis has all the makings of a future religion. It's possible in a few years there will be the Church of Elvis.

Do you know that Elvis had 18 number one hits? They include "Jailhouse Rock", "Love Me Tender," and "Gangnam Style." I read that on Wikipedia.
Recently Paul McCartney visited Graceland. He left a guitar pick on Elvis Presley's headstone. He said it was so Elvis can play guitar in heaven. Don't they have guitar picks in heaven?

They have about as much chance of seceding from Colorado as Chucky has to secede from Cheese.
