I slipped into the friend zone but thought I was working my way out. She would call me up and in that sweet voice say “Want to go to the movies big boy?” Followed by this giggle that could calm the spirits of the most restless souls.

The eminent minds at TSA saw fit to confiscate an armed soldier’s nail clippers because he might use them to take over the plane. At this point I would like to point out that he was not armed with nail clippers, he was armed with an assault rifle – which was apparently acceptable because it didn’t have bullets.

It certainly would have relaxed the vocal cords in these screeching and stammering singers, perpetrators of some of the anthem's worst renditions ever recorded (and then posted on YouTube ). Let's start with an uplifting one.
