Just in case you thought Stephen Colbert wasn't as awesome as he used to be, now you know he is still as cool as ever. I was fortunate enough to see a taping of his show a couple of summers ago… not that you really care.
In case you missed it, here is President Obama speaking to Jay Leno on "The Tonight Show" on August 6.
The Spanish speaking country to the south of our border constantly gets a bad rap. But what about the Spanish speaking country just south of France? Well known for the siesta, which is something we could all use, now they're doing something we've all wanted to do.
Don't you hate when people don't pick up after their dogs? Well now volunteers in Spain are "delivering" poop not picked up by dog owners right back to the doorstep of the pet owners.
This is one of the best ideas ever. Afternoon naps and the ultimate punishment for careless dog owners? This is the place for me.
Yahoo! is getting a new logo. Over the next four weeks, their website home page will showcase a different logo. Only one of them will be the real next logo. We'll find out which one in a month.
Finally an incentive to go to the Yahoo! homepage. Yahoo! for those who have forgotten is that search engine that you no longer use but some people use it for e-mail and many use it for fantasy sports. I use it for fantasy sports but the fantasy sports home page is bookmarked. I haven't been to good ol' Yahoo.com itself since elementary school.
If this actually existed, I would probably get one of these. Road trips would be so much more fun. But in all honesty I still love listening to good old fashioned radio on road trips.
Driving is the best. This would only make it better.
If you ask me, it doesn't seem like a great day to be at the Beach. But when in Belgium…
A new Muppets movie is coming in 2014. I don't think this movie will have issues making a profit at the box office. Here's a new trailer:
A surfer put his GoPro in the water and a Dolphin swimming by saw it, turned towards it, gave a smile and carried on. Success for this Dolphin's 15 seconds of fame.
We'll see if Crest or Colgate is now willing to sign this little guy to a marketing deal.
How do you know what to watch on TV? Or maybe you don't watch "TV." You just watch Hulu and Netflix. Did you know those programs were once on TV? OK I guess I lied. When it comes to shows like Orange is the New Black… that never actually was on TV. Hell I don't even know anymore.
But one thing we are seeing more and more while we watch TV is Twitter hashtags rolling across the screen. And apparently those are working… because according to Nielsen, 29% of TV ratings are impacted by Twitter.
Does Twitter ever dictate what you watch on TV?

McDonalds has the McGriddle which uses pancakes as a bun for its breakfast sandwiches.
Now Taco Bell is actually going through with the long-standing idea of a Waffle Taco which is exactly what it sounds like. The taco is a waffle.
Starting Thursday (Aug. 8) the waffle taco will be available in 100 restaurants. If you are fortunate enough to be near one of the 100, please let me know how it is.
So is this the new norm? Does anyone think this is getting out of hand? I mean KFC even has a sandwich where CHICKEN is the bun! I must be getting old. I remember a time when people used bread to make sandwiches. Those were good times. And this may make me sound ancient, but when I get home from work every day, I actually make a sandwich for lunch… and I use a roll… made out of BREAD!
As a Jew, now I am waiting for an alternative to Matzoh. Once that happens, Passover will never be the same again.
