  1. Bill Nye The Science Guy Evaluates Oil Spill Cleanup Solutions

    Bill Nye the Science Guy, by now a bona fide cable news pundit, helped CNN evaluate different oil spill solutions submitted by YouTube users.

  2. Colorado Gubernatorial Candidate Seeks Running Mate On Craigslist

    Are you unemployed and a resident of Colorado? Great news! Jason Clark, Independent gubernatorial candidate and lover of exclamation points, has a job opening on his campaign. In order to make a proper run for the state’s top job, he needs a running mate—and he’s willing to interview anyone and everyone interested. That’s why he posted this advertisement in the “Government Jobs” section of the Denver Craigslist page, hoping to recruit a qualified candidate to round out his team.

    The qualifications to apply for the running mate position are not as demanding as one would expect for such a job— as long as you’re a registered Independent who is over 30 and has lived in Colorado for at least two years, Clark would like to talk to you. Unlike most Craigslist gigs, this one may actually lead to a paid position and doesn’t even require a cover letter or resume!

    Happy birthday, Giorgio Moroder! The father of modern dance music and both three-time Grammy and Oscar winner turns 70 today. Yes, the man who wrote the soundtrack to Scarface and thought Donna Summer’s vocal “exercises” in “Love to Love You, Baby” were a good idea at a time when people were still getting arrested for filming porn movies is now your grandfather’s age. Time flies!

  5. Did Facebook Muzzle a Poodle’s Campaign to Get More Fans than Glenn Beck?

    Onion rings uniting against Justin Bieber or pickled Nickelback opponents are allowed to roam free on Facebook, but a poodle in a tinfoil hat campaigning to acquire more fans than Glenn Beck crosses a line of decency.

    This the latest verdict from the social networking company, who slapped the fan page "Can This Poodle Wearing a Tinfoil Hat Get More Fans than Glenn Beck?" with a "publish block" that prevents them from recruiting new members or advertising the page on Facebook:

  6. Betty White Coming to SNL On May 8th: Thanks, Facebook [Followup]

    We've previously reported that the Facebooking hordes successfully petitioned SNL to get Betty White to host. Mow, we've got a date: May 8th, the night before Mother's Day.

    USA Today is reporting that Betty White will be hosting the May 8 broadcast of Saturday Night Live after refusing the spot for years. White, whose legendary status has persisted to a younger generation through her role in The Proposal, playing beer pong with Jimmy Fallon, and, yes, those Golden Girls reruns on Lifetime, became the center of a Facebook campaign to get her to host after the debut of her new Snickers ad during the Super Bowl. And Lorne Michaels couldn’t sound happier about it:
