      WEAKLY HUMERUS NEWS 01-13-13

      We're $20 trillion in debt so somebody at the Treasury Department says that what we'll do is print a coin for a trillion dollars. I've seen a prototype.

      Donald Trump has accepted Bill Maher's offer of $5,000.00.00 for a copy of his birth certificate proving his father was not an ape. Unfortunately, the certificate is clearly marked void. While many may feel it is a doctored document hiding his true origin, the more likely explanation is he can't afford the $15.00 fee for obtaining a certified copy. (Stan Kegel)

      No one was elected to the Hall of Fame today. So regarding the 'Steroid Era' is this going to be like the 'Family Guy' episode with the tour in Germany when Brian asks what happened between 1939-1945? And the guide says, "Everyone was on vacation." (Janice Hough)

      According to several reports, a lot of people think 2013 is going to be bad luck because it has the number 13 in it. You know what you call these people? Notre Dame fans. (Jay Leno)

      Joe Biden met the NRA, video gamers and entertainment execs at the White House to discuss ways of reducing gun violence.

If you want nothing done, the vice president's always your man. (Argus Hamilton)

      A rural Ohio school district will allow janitors to carry guns. It will definitely change the culture. Students should probably flush the toilets. (Alan Ray)

      No one's taking away ALL the guns. But now I get it, now I see what's happening. So this is what it is. Their paranoid fear of a possible dystopic future prevents us from addressing our actual dystopic present. We can't even begin to address 30,000 gun deaths that are actually, in reality, happening in this country every year because a few of us must remain vigilant against the rise of imaginary Hitler. (Jon Stewart) 

      A California high school student is in custody after a teacher talked him into dropping his shotgun.

      In order to avoid a debt crisis, the US could mint a platinum trillion dollar coin, or as Mitt Romney calls it -- pocket change. (Gary Bachman)

      President Obama was urged by liberal economists Tuesday to mint a trillion dollar platinum coin if the GOP forces the U.S. to default in the upcoming debt negotiations. The Treasury would mint the coin and sell it to the Federal Reserve for a trillion dollars and avoid default. It hasn't been done since the Thirteen Colonies broke away from Zimbabwe. (Argus Hamilton)

      What happened to the fiscal cliff? Are we on it or off it? Forget it. The debt ceiling is the brand new crisis. The fiscal cliff was just the warm-up, just for beginners, like a student film. (David Letterman)

      President Barack Obama was 'totally furious' he spent a week of his time posing for a trillion-dollar platinum coin that would never be minted, a White House source confirmed today. The coin fiasco behind him, Mr. Obama has now apparently learned his lesson. If this coin idea ever comes up again, he's going to make Biden pose for it. (Andy Borowitz)

      President Obama will be sworn in with his hand resting on two Bibles. Is that how screwed up Washington is now? One Bible can't get the job done anymore? (Jay Leno)

      President Obama's inauguration is coming up. During next week's inauguration, he will be sworn in with not one, but two Bibles. Relax, Mr. President. We get it. You're not a Muslim. You're overcompensating. (Conan O'Brien)

      Planners of President Obama's upcoming inauguration are soliciting $1 million contributions to help pay for the party. With that kind of funding, I'm pretty sure it won't be a Tea Party. (Nancy Jo Perdue)

      Congress hit a new low Monday as Public Policy Poll showed Congress is less popular than a colonoscopy. They only asked the question of people who'd experienced both. It's a mailing list of everyone who makes four hundred thousand dollars per year or more. (Argus

      In the Ohio House, Rep. Peter Beck faces an ethics investigation due to a civil lawsuit alleging he participated in a fraud that cheated investors out of more than $1 million.

      Georgia Rep. Phil Gingrey, an OB-GYN, said Todd Akin was "partly right when he said women's bodies can avoid pregnancy in cases of 'legitimate rape', because adrenaline can cause you not to ovulate." Forget this women's bodies shutting down stuff, what can we do to get some men's mouths to shut down? (Janice Hough)

      Former South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford, who resigned after the fallout from his extramarital affair, will announce that he will run in a special election for a House seat. Amongst his likely opponents, Sanford's ex-wife Jenny. Now there's a debate I'd pay to watch. (Janice Hough)

They told Framingham officials the egging incident was "a prank, a joke between friends." The homeowner is a Newton police sergeant and their superior officer. He says is handling the matter internally. I think somebody might be in trouble. (Rich Hancock)

      Just when you thought you heard it all, comes word that a company --CTA Digital -- has released a new gadget called iPotty. The iPotty is a potty with a built-in iPad holder, so children can train without putting down their gadgets -- just like ma and pa. The iPotty will sell for $39.99. The product is not to be confused with the one teens use -- iPottyMouth. (Cam Hutchinson)

He went to a police station to file a report but encountered the pharmacy owner making his own report -- that Fierro was actually robbing him at the moment the car was taken. More surveillance video revealed that while Fierro was standing outside the pharmacy, wondering where his car was, a man ran by and stole the stolen cash.

      A couple days ago Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly claimed that leaving Notre Dame is "not an option. I don't even think about it." Today sources said Kelly interviewed with the Philadelphia Eagles. Well, maybe Brian can stop by the confessional on his way out. (Janice Hough)

      Ah yes, SEC dominance. And Alabama only lost to Texas A & M. Who only lost to LSU and Florida. And Florida lost to Louisville, who only lost to Syracuse and Connecticut. And Connecticut only lost to NC State, Temple. Rutgers, USF, Cincinnati, Syracuse and Western Michigan. (Janice Hough)

      The 2013 college football schedule is out, and the only top 10 teams Alabama is facing are Texas A & M and LSU. But hey, maybe Tennessee-Chattanooga can derail the three-peat. (Janice Hough)

      According to ESPN sources, the Cotton Bowl is a "prohibitive favorite" to host the first college football national playoff title game on Jan. 12, 2015.. Well, that's one way to get a meaningful future postseason game in Dallas. (Janice Hough)

      No one was elected this year to the Baseball Hall of Fame. Now, if we could just do that with Congress. (Jerry Perisho)

      The Baseball Hall of Fame voting results are in, and for the first time since 1996, not one player was voted in. They turned down Roger Clemens, Mark McGwire, Sammy Sosa, and Barry Bonds. Here’s how bad it was: Lance Armstrong got more votes than any of those guys. (Jay Leno)

      Baseball's Hall of Fame had its selections for players who are voted in. This year, nobody gets in. Lots of players were eligible, but nobody got in. However, Pete Rose is already taking bets for next year. (David Letterman)

      If the Baseball Hall of Fame really wanted to make a statement about PED's they should have elected Jamie Moyer. Since we know he got 269 wins without PED's. If he had been on 'roids his fastball would have hit at least 70. (Janice Hough)

      If the real issue with PED's is that they are illegal does that mean we need to eject all baseball Hall of Fame members who drank alcohol between 1920 and 1933? (Janice Hough)

(Bob Mills)

      Theo Epstein says the Chicago Cubs don't want to be known as 'loveable losers'. So he's going to have them stop being loveable? (Janice Hough)


      In an effort to gain a TV deal, The Lingerie Football League is rebranding itself as The Legends Football League. The girls will have their lingerie stripped and replaced with traditional non-revealing football gear. The latter is just in case Brent Musberger becomes an announcer. (TC Chong)

      The Continental Cup, pitting curlers from Canada and the U.S. against Europe, began on Jan 10. Continental curling is just like North American curling, but with smaller portions.  (RJ Currie)
