WEDNESDAY AUG. 1: Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio has long been a publicity hound, enacting stupid and ineffective procedures like making inmates wear pink and broil in the Arizona heat while doing their time. Today, in a bit of role reversal, Arpaio was in court.

Kermit the Frog today said he was just about sick of Chick-fil-A, and not just because the food is gross. The Jim Henson Co. released a statement saying that it will no longer partner with Chick-fil-A because of the company’s non-inclusive policies.

WEDNESDAY JULY 11: Alanis Morissette didn’t know what “ironic” meant and we probably don’t either … but it sure sucks for all the people who took a hair-loss medication called Propecia, which people in lab coats now believe harms males’ sex drives and somehow even shrinks the organs found where the bathing suit covers.

A text message from Bengals coach Marvin Lewis reportedly evoked an emotional response from his former player, Chad Ochocinco, on Ocho’s wedding day. Ochocinco wrote on Twitter that he was “going through text messages, Marvin Lewis message is making me tear up a lil bit and I didn’t even see the bride yet…” This comes as a surprise to many Cincinnatians, who recall the dysfunction and lack of success which typified the coach and player’s relationship during his time with the Bengals.

Since ObamaCare didn’t get faded by the Supreme Court, Jean Schmidt plans to spend the rest of the summer riding shotgun in an ice-cream truck, waiting for a young boy or girl to drop their frozen treat onto the asphalt by accident so she can hop out, point and laugh at them.

The U.S. Supreme Court today said “hell nah” to many parts of an Arizona law designed to fight illegal immigration by racially profiling people. It wasn’t a total victory for those who don’t love America and think a nation built by immigrants will be ruined by them, as the court let a provision stand that allows police to check a person’s immigration status while enforcing other laws.

New laws will soon change where and how you can buy things to blow up in Northern Kentucky.

Justin Bieber today compared himself to Michael Jackson, telling Billboard that his new song “Maria” is his “Billie Jean.” In response to this, we at WWE! have decided to start calling our traditional Monday dinner of diced hot dogs and macaroni “Surf and Turf.”

If the 1985 film Pee Wee’s Big Adventure taught us anything, it’s that rich people think they can have whatever they want when someone loves an object enough, he or she will do anything to keep it. That’s kind of what’s going on over at Music Hall these days.

Anyone who has heard about how important bees are to the existence of humanity understands the fundamental frailty of our ecosystem (and maybe likes honey a lot or has really nerdy friends). Such an individual would have been interested in today’s news that the Asian longhorned beetle will soon reemerge in Clermont County and threaten to eat all the trees.

Since a pack of five coyotes was first seen in the Northern Kentucky city in January 2011, residents have reported seeing them a few more times. A police spokesperson strongly urged visitors and residents of Park Hills to remain vigilant and not to loiter in front of any roadside signs promising “Free Bird Seed” until the coyote threat has been neutralized.

Germany’s Der Spiegel reported today that during 2011 German police shot only 85 bullets, and most weren’t even aimed at humans. Out of 85 bullets fired, 49 were warning shots. These numbers make it seem like it might be possible to greatly reduce the number of times per year in this country a person gets shot to death by the police in a situation where it seems like other resolutions could have been reached.

In an attempt to better understand the effects of probiotics found in yogurt, and whether they have something to do with weight loss, the researchers fed one group of mice a normal food and gave another group the same diet plus a mouse-sized serving of vanilla yogurt. Male mice that were given yogurt became slimmer and had shinier coats then those that did not, and the yogurt-eating mice also became more desirable to all the hot lady mice.

Image consultants have reportedly urged Cincinnati to emulate larger, “awesome” cities by becoming more accommodating to skaters, bikers and users of other self-propelled modes of transportation. Otherwise, visitors who have seen the locally filmed 1993 rollerblading classic Airborne might be disappointed to find out that Cincinnati isn’t really the kind of place a cool kid from California would move and that Devil’s Backbone might not be real, either.
