Hump Day News Round-Up

  • If it walks like a Christmas tree and talks like a Christmas tree: House Speaker Dennis Hasbert recommended that the name of the "Capitol Holiday Tree" (dubbed such during the PC fervor of the Clinton era) revert back to "Capitol Christmas Tree." Kudos to you, sir.
  • A peanut butter allergy-addled Canadian teen was killed after a kiss from her boyfriend, who had just consumed a PB&J sandwich. My first thought (comic book nerd alert): that dude's Rogue!
  • A Pennsylvania woman has been arrested after she tried to poison her family by adding bleach to the family's mac & cheese dinner. Mmmmmm...Kraft Bleach and Macaroni. It's the bleachiest!
  • A Bosnian town erected a shiny statue of Bruce Lee (cool), only to have it vandalized hours later (not cool).

I'm ashamed to admit that, although I'm no comic-book geek, I also thought of Rogue when I heard the PB&J of Death story.

I also had a thought concerning an X-Men character.
