911…bush knocked down the towers — Macklemore (@macklemore) September 18, 2009 Now that rapper Macklemore has won a Grammy for Best New Artist, it seems he’s less shy giving his opinion.

From what I can piece together on my Twitter feed, some Miss America contestant blamed Syria on twerking. — S.E. Cupp (@secupp) September 16, 2013 Twerking and Syria. The two topics are inextricably linked in the realm of seriousness, thanks to the Miss America competition, where contestants were assured that the lines of questioning about issues of the day would be “equally difficult.” However, it depends on what your definition of “equally” is: So… ABC says these questions are equally difficult? One was about chemical warfare in Syria, the other about Miley twerking. #MissAmerica — Lauran Berta (@LauranBerta) September 16, [More]
Imagine walking to your car one morning before work, only to be interrupted by a vicious street fight. Some neighborhoods are more prone to this brutal reality, but depending on where you are, it can also be hilarious. If you live in Australia, the fights you see will be awesome.

Neither ‘roo is eager to relent. YouTube They use their muscular tails as a sort of third leg, balancing [More]
