Just in time for the holiday!
The Nuwave Oven Pro is a $120 portable oven that can allegedly cook a 10-pound turkey (or small sibling) in a mere two hours.
"NuWave performs this miracle using three kinds of heat: Conduction, convection and infrared, turning that raw bird into a golden brown beauty in no time flat."Oh really? I bet we could cut the cooking time down to an hour by adding a fourth type of heat -- my body's. Oh, yeah.

Here's what our li'l trailer park princess had to say:

"The suit was filed Friday and seeks a jury trial and $3 million in damages for suffering, embarrassment and the cost of having to move to a new home (due to alleged stalkers).
The suit says that Phillip Sherman left the phone the Fayetteville store in July and that employees promised to secure it until he returned."
Now I hate to call the Shermans liars and cheats, but they most certainly are. Chili finger, anyone?

So, basically Guy Ritchie has to carry his kids around in a shoebox (made of 100% recycled materials) full of Kashi and Madonna books while his kids "enjoy" their stay in London. Huh. Why do I have a feeling that when the kids get back to Madonna's compound it'll be all Wienerschnitzel and water slides?

"Jayden James was raced to the emergency ward after lapsing into a 'vague and unresponsive' state.
"The toddler fell ill yesterday afternoon at the family home in Kentwood, Louisiana. The entire Spears clan made the 25-mile dash to Southwest Mississippi Regional Medical Centre, Mississippi.
"Doctors were unable to pinpoint the problem straight away and kept the toddler in for overnight observation. Distraught Britney, 26, refused to leave his side and asked for a bed next to him in the ward.
"Her ex-husband, rapper Kevin Federline, is now believed to be making plans to jet out of Los Angeles to be at Jayden's bedside."
First off, in all seriousness, everyone hoped for the best for little Jayden, and the good news is he's just fine. In the meantime, let's be honest: you know when the doctors said "We're not quite sure what the problem is..." everyone in the hospital turned and looked at Britney.

"'Autonomous vehicle technology is pretty much in its infancy,' said Tony Stentz, a professor at CMU involved in the project. Stentz expects that over the next five to 10 years, the technology will expand to areas beyond mining, eventually finding its way into consumer cars and trucks."Autonomous vehicle technology. That. Sounds. Great. Seriously, this is bad news. You know what happens when a 700-ton robot truck gets road rage? Nothing good.

It's soon to be 44th U.S. President Barack Obama in Super Obama World! You run around in Alaska stomping pigs, collecting American flags and not buying clothes. It wasn't the worst game I've ever played, but that's only because I've had games played with my heart. True story.

So, as we all know Paris Hilton (our beloved de-evolutionary sweetheart) has been paying more and more visits to David Letterman's Late Show recently... and I gotta' tell you, I'm starting to love these Paris/Dave interviews. Mostly because he drops a ton of backhanded, snarky compliments, and she just giggles like a doll-eyed, vapid mountain of dumb. But I did learn something: it turns out 300,000 people auditioned for Paris Hilton's My New BFF. That's over a quarter of a million Americans who think hanging out with the human equivalent of a Port-A-John is the zenith of living.
And you wonder why I was so worried about the election?
