Los Angeles Police Department officers found themselves in a rather awkward situation at the Robotoki video game developer studio after an employee accidentally hit their security system's "armed threat" panic button. The office just happened to have a life-sized statue of the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 character Simon "Ghost" Riley on display by the entrance, armed with a menacing-looking mock assault rifle. When police arrived on the scene and noticed the gun-wielding figure, they immediately stormed the building in a tense 15-minute standoff. After realizing the effigy was not a threat, the police reportedly left the building while laughing at the absurd incident.
Grumpy Cat's internet fairy tale has entered yet another exciting chapter with the latest announcement of a Garfield-like family comedy film centered around the dour-faced cat. According to Deadline, the film will be produced by Todd Garner of Broken Road Productions, who has previously worked on dozens of films like XXX, The Sorcerer's Apparentice and Jack and Jill, and more importantly, Tardar Sauce will be given a speaking role, in similar vein to Hollywood's live action adaptations of Garfield. What are your thoughts? Will you go see the Grumpy Cat movie?
According to the latest report from the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO), phasing out the iconic one dollar bill and replacing it with coins will save the taxpayer $4.4 billion over 30 years, due to the latter's superior durability (coins last 30 years, whereas bills are typically good for 5 years). While the dollar coin has been in mint production since 1794, it has never quite caught on with the American public, forcing the Federal Reserve, which holds 1.4 billion of the 2.4 billion coins currently in circulation, to suspend its production last year. The GAO report came as the Congress began seeking ways to save money on minting at a House subcommittee hearing earlier on Thursday.

Hostess, the maker of Twinkies and Wonderbread, is on the express lane to liquidation after a union strike that began last week had crippled its production and delivery lines. It's no secret that the American bakery manufacturer has been in financial decline; the company initially filed for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy back in 2004, which lasted for five years before resurfacing as a private company in 2009, only to declare bankruptcy again earlier this year in January 2012. According to Hostess' spokesperson, all of its business operations have been suspended in 33 plants across the country and most of its 18,500 employees will lose their jobs as a result of the liquidation. Today's news has already prompted a mourning period on the Internet with various tributes to Hostess, including this "Ode to Hostess" mashup by YouTuber Meldude10.
