MIAMI (CBS4) - I consume enormous amounts of news from all sorts of sources. A good chunk of that involves trying to find a quirky or interesting item for this segment.
Today was rough, because most of what I found, especially on Twitter, ranged from inane to who cares?
Here are some samples:
From ABC News: "Farmer Eaten by Hungry Hogs." Sad, but need I say more?
From The Huffington Post: "Nine Reasons Why No One Should Marry Arnold Schwarzenegger." Being a serial adulterer and having a love child with the maid aren't enough?
More Huffington Post: "The Most Exciting Thermostat Ever." Are we so bored a thermostat is exciting?
Meghan McCain to Romney: "Loosen up and learn to love Americans." Romney doesn't? Senator McCain must be so proud of his daughter for that one.
Good Morning America: "Expert Says Bra Sizes a Scam." And we care, why?
E-Online: "Forty Four Days to Go until Breaking Dawn." How will we survive till then?
And People Magazine: "Presents from Honey Boo Boo... There's a Glitzy the Pig."
If you don't know who Honey Boo Boo and Glitzy the Pig are, congratulations: you are not wasting as many of your gray cells as I am on nutty news and tweets for twits.
