Fresh off an election year reprieve, Big Bird came to the White House to film two new public service announcements marking the third anniversary of Michelle Obama's "Let's Move" initiative while trolling Mitt Romney with a victory dance. And if you thought these feel-good PSAs couldn't possibly stir the angersphere into a rage, you have not been paying attention:

When we last caught up with Tennessee state senator Stacey Campfield, he was giving unsolicited medical advice by blaming AIDS on a gay airline pilot having sex with a monkey and calling the disease "virtually impossible" to contract via heterosexual intercourse.
There's just one problem with acting like a cartoon arch-villain: each of your evil schemes must be grander than the last. The AIDS thing came after Campfield demanded the word "gay" be banned from Tennessee classrooms, so how has he topped himself now?

Please hold the Mayan apocalypse jokes, but Kim Kardashian is pregnant with Kanye West's baby. Kanye made the announcement during his concert in Atlantic City, telling the audience, "Stop the music and make some noise for my baby mama" while pointing to Kardashian.

He'll be nice to everyone, wherever we go I mean

For those of us who wanted to believe, it came as sad news that this "Golden Eagle Snatches Kid" video was a hoax concocted by students at Centre NAD in Montreal. We should have been suspicious from the start: a Canadian eagle wouldn't so much as flutter a hair on a baby's head without squawking a profuse apology in English and French, as required by Canadian law.
