"Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke said the economy appears to be on track to continue to expand through this year and next. Then he said, 'And you can take that to one of the remaining banks.'"
"According to a new report, BP has the worst safety record of all the oil companies. They've paid over $372 million in fines. Oh, they don't call them fines. They call them 'campaign contributions.'"
"Seems Hall and Oates have cancelled an upcoming concert in Arizona to protest the state's new immigration law. Well, that will teach Arizona a lesson, huh? Let's see how long they can go without Hall and Oates!"
"Apparently, Hall and Oates were worried Arizona authorities would make them go back to where they came from — the '70s."
"Actor Kevin Costner was testifying before Congress earlier. He has come up with a way to separate oil from seawater and he was telling the congressmen all about it. And previously, Costner developed a process to separate moviegoers from their money."
