Montana, there are so many things to adore about you! Your bizarro state legislature, unfortunately, is not among these adorable things:
Montana's House of Representatives passed a bill last week that would permit people to salvage meat from game animals killed in traffic accidents.
Nothing wrong with that! Responsible adults should feed themselves as they please. Plus, times are hard and waste is bad. "We're just looking for something good for Montana so they can use the meat," noted the bill's sponsor, whose name is Steve Lavin (I know, you were thinking Ron Swanson).
While the Roadkill: It's What's for Dinner bill sailed through the Montana House on a vote of 95-3, another bill looks like it will have trouble passing.
That's because it's not about roadkill. It's about The Gays.

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:

As the founder of a microbrewery, Gov. John Hickenlooper (D-CO) is among our nation's top experts on quirky libations. Which is why it wasn't surprising to find him telling a U.S. Senate committee that he drank a glass of fracking fluid produced by Halliburton:
"You can drink it. We did drink it around the table, almost ritual-like in a funny way," he told the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources. "It was a demonstration…they've invested millions of dollars in what is a benign fluid in every sense."
Move over bacon-infused bourbon! Some elements of the fluid remain secret, but with the help of Halliburton's public disclosures, you can recreate The Hickenlooper for whomever you're fracking this Valentine's Day:
