Sarah Palin, 24/7

So, apparently Sarah Palin's a hot property in the world of social media. So why not launch her own internet channel?

For those of you who want 24/7 access to the former governor of the 49th state and John McCain's game-changer – don't everyone raise your hand all at once – you're going to want to sign up for SarahPalinChannel.com.

It went live on Sunday, and she promises that there won't be any of the "media filters" which her people disdain.

And you can get your browserful of Sarah Palin for just $9.95 a month, by subscription.

She must have gotten her inspiration from Vince McMahon's WWE Network, which is doing so very well.

Yes, that's sarcasm.

Another Mom of the Year Candidate Out in Front

Tamsin Wade is 19 years old and mom to a two-year-old in Suffolk, England.

After having her son, she found that her breasts shrank from their normal 32D to a 32AA. That also deflated her confidence, so she was reluctant to be seen in public, which meant she and her son never left the house.

So she did what any sane mom would do to get that confidence back. She borrowed about $8500 and had a boob job.

Now she's a shirt-busting 32G, and not afraid to pop out – um, go out – in public any more.

This, she says, all goes to make her a better mom. Good for her.

And, should she get pregnant again, her new boobs should only shrink down to a 32D, so she'll be back where she started from.
Win win, if you ask me.

GOT Bloopers?

Everyone loves a good blooper, right?

But until HBO released it over the weekend, I had no idea they ever made mistakes in the shooting of Game of Thrones.

Guess what? Mistakes are made, and plenty of them.

For those missing their weekly dose of the comings and goings in Westeros, I present the GOT Blooper Reel, from Season 4. They shared this over the weekend at Comic-Con.

Make sure you stay for the end – you don't want to miss Jamie and Tyrion's big courtroom entrance.

Say It Ain't So, Spidey!

When you visit Times Square in New York, chances are good you're going to run into a street performer in a costume you recognize.

Well, sort of. These aren't Disneyworld quality outfits – these are the worn-by-many outfits you'd find at the local costume shop around Halloween.

If you're not too creeped out, you just might want to take a picture with that character. After all, how many times will you be able to snap a picture with a superhero on the sidewalk of the Big Apple, right?

So, on Sunday, one such picture opportunity got out of hand. A woman snapped a shot with Spiderman and offered a dollar for his efforts. Spidey refused the dollar, demanding a larger bill.

A nearby cop overheard the conversation, and reminded Spidey that he could accept donations, but couldn't ask for money. And that's when Spidey hit the cop square in the face – with his fist, not some webbing fluid.

Spidey was carted off and charged with a variety of charges.

Wouldn't it be great if some guy dressed as The Hulk showed up to pay his bail?

Justin Timberlake is Number 1 - Guess Who's Number 2?

Forbes magazine is known for compiling lists based on money. It's what they do.

So they put together a list of the best-selling musical artists for 2013.

Justin Timberlake is on top. No real surprise. He had a huge year.

So nipping at his heels has to be someone like Beyonce, or maybe Kanye West, right?

Think again, friend. The number two best-selling artist of 2013 was Luke Bryan.

Yes. Country music artist Luke Bryan.

According to Forbes, country musicians are the new rock stars. They point out that three of the top ten albums of 2013 came from country artists, while only one was even vaguely rock.

Country music is standing loud and proud. Might be time to polish up those cowboy boots and dust off that Resistol hat…

Queen Bey Meets Shakespeare - Sort of...

Beyonce is a legitimate queen of the music world. Her songs sell millions, her concerts sell-out.

But has anyone ever tried to breathe life into the lyrics of her songs in monologue form?

Why yes, someone has. Actress Nina Millin has done just that, with The Beyoncelogues.

There's a handful of them out there – the most recent add is "Single Ladies."

Check it out. And check out Nina, if you like, on Twitter.

Fire Your Scout, Boys

Some robbers got more than they bargained for recently when they tried to grab a bank bag from a convenience store clerk in Houston.

The attempted grab happened in the parking lot, but inside the store, another clerk saw the whole thing and jumped to the rescue.

The clerk, much to the surprise of the thieves, is a five-time mixed martial arts fighter champion.

After a flurry of kicks and punches, the thieves jumped into their SUV and took off, leaving one of their accomplices behind.

The MMA clerk kept that guy down until the cops arrived.

Check out the video in the news story – and the best part might be the way one of the store's customers describes the whole thing.

Um, Excuse Me, I'm With YOUR Government...

Okay, so this is awkward. During a congressional hearing at the end of last week, Florida Representative Curt Clawson addressed two senior US government officials as if they were representing the government of India.

The officials, from the State Department, are Americans with names that sound sub-continental – Nisah Biswal and Arun Kumar.

Clawson – who's new to the House, having replaced another congressman who had to resign after being convicted of cocaine possession – asked Biswal and Kumar to get their government to lighten up on restrictions of investment of US capital in India.

The silence lasted for what seemed minutes. Okay, maybe not, but it sure felt like it. And Biswal let Clawson off the hook, saying, "I think your question is to the Indian government. We certainly share your sentiment."

I don't think I would have been that kind. I probably would have asked the chairman of the committee to slap the Gentleman from Florida upside the head.

Here's How Queen Bey Spends Her Downtime

Beyonce and Jay Z hit the road in June with their On The Run Tour, and they've been going pretty much non-stop.

So when they've got some downtime between shows, it stands to reason they'd like to relax.

Over the weekend, Beyonce did that, laying out on a surfboard.

Fully clothed. Well, mostly.

On dry ground.

And arranging a selfie to capture the moment.

That's exactly how I would do it.

Peter & Homer Are a Great Team?

Looks like Comic-Con was the place to be last week.

All sorts of trailers were released and enjoyed by convention attendees , including this one for the season premiere of Family Guy that has the Griffins traveling to Springfield and meeting the Simpsons.

What follows is a mash-up of epic albeit cartoonish proportions.

Check it out, and mark your calendars for September 28.
