Using your cat as a light switch -- pro: Effectively extinguishes even the highest sources of light; con: Doesn't care if you actually wanted the light left on.

Clintonville Explosions in the Ground Follow Up Mysterious Sounds - 6018944512

Has the mystery of Clintonville's bizarre booming sounds been solved? If scientists are to be believed, the cause of the noisy phenomenon is a "swarm of microquakes."

"The mystery is solved. We have experienced an earthquake here in Clintonville," City Administrator Lisa Kuss told residents at a city meeting last night. The USGS backed up its "claim" with "evidence" showing that a 1.5 magnitude earthquake struck the central Wisconsin city around noon on Tuesday.

Residents, who began hearing strange rumbles this past Sunday, challenged the city's explanation, saying quakes had previously been ruled out. Kuss admits that it was "by fluke" that the USGS's traveling portable arrays happened to be in the area when the tremors occurred.

For now, this is the best answer the city has to give, though officials acknowledge they aren't sure it's the only answer, so Graboids are very much still on the table.

Today is apparently National Puppy Day, and what better way to celebrate than with a feel-good puppy story?

Beyonce the teeny tiny two-week-old puppy was named after the pop singer because, just like her namesake, she too is a survivor.

Born not breathing, Beyonce had to be resuscitated through CPR. Cheating death is apparently a trait Beyonce inherited from her mom, a stray who was almost euthanized.

As if that weren't enough amazing to last the rest of National Puppy Day, the litter Beyonce was born into was almost aborted.

After all that I think I'm going to need a few dozen more National Puppy Days to calm my nerves. Any objections? Didn't think so.

Just look at them. They're clearly asking for it.

Badvertising Belvedere Vodka LMVH Rape Sells smooth move - 6018602496

Looks like the folks at Belvedere Vodka have been getting high on their own supply. How else would one explain this awful, rape-appropriating ad they just released on Facebook?

The sobering responses to the copy from distraught vodka drinkers helped the LVMH brand quickly come to and pull the ad. "We apologize to any of our fans who were offended by our recent tweet," Belvedere wrote. "We continue to be an advocate of safe and responsible drinking."

Can't wait for their next tweet wherein they tell anyone who still has a problem with the ad to go have a drink.
