      As you probably know, the volcano on the tiny island of Iceland has shut down air traffic. President Obama had to cancel his trip to Poland. President Obama said he hopes the volcano will stop smoking soon, and the volcano said the same thing about him. (Jimmy Kimmel)

      The volcano is erupting underneath a glacier, meaning everything kicks up through a hole in the ice. Some scientists are calling it an “ice-hole,” but other scientists are saying the problem is pre-existing ash, therefore it’s more of an “ash-hole.” (Craig Ferguson)

      Rush Limbaugh said on his show that the volcano eruption in Iceland happened because God was mad at Obama for passing the Health Care reform. Rush, what an ash! (Pedro Bartes)

      The Icelandic volcanic air chaos seems to be abating for now. But worries about future eruptions may have a long-term effect on government travel as the U. S doesn't want high-level officials stranded. Hillary Clinton, for example, may be spending a lot more time at home. And Bill Clinton just asked that Iceland be added to the "axis of evil." (Janice Hough)

      Volcanic ash has shut down many airports in Europe. What a nightmare. It was so smoky in Paris, the French could barely be rude to the person in front of them. (Alan Ray)

      The 95,000 scheduled flights canceled over the past week have cost the airline industry an estimated $2 billion and stranded passengers at air terminals all over Europe.

      The next topic is a thing. Can I buy a vowel? I'd like to buy another vowel. I'd like to solve the puzzle, Pat: "Eyjafjallajokull" (Israel Carrasco)

      To demonstrate their commitment, environmentalists all across the country risked their lives driving Priuses. (Jay Leno)

      The two-day International Cannabis and Hemp Expo was held near San Francisco last weekend. And you thought the volcanic cloud drifting over Europe was huge! ( Jerry Perisho)

      Today is April 20, which is like Christmas for pot smokers. It all started in the 1700s, when St. Patrick drove the stoners out of Ireland with a pack of Twinkies. In celebration of 4/20, the volcano in Iceland is still smoking. And it just asked for Hot Pockets. (Jimmy Kimmel)

      Talk show host Larry King has filed for divorce from his 50-year-old singer wife, Shawn Southwick. Both are citing irreconcilable differences. This is King's eighth divorce but only his seventh wife. He once remarried one of his former wives, then divorced her again. He forgot he'd already been married to her. That was so long ago, there were only three women on Earth, and he'd already married all of them once. They're just from two different eras. She's from the disco era, he's from the Mesozoic Era. (The Comedy Wire)

      Both Larry King, 76, and his wife Shawn, 50, have filed suit to end their 13-year marriage. He's alleging “irreconcilable differences” and she, “irreconcilable ages.” She seeks sole custody of their kids, while he wants permanent custody of the suspenders. (Bob Mills)

      On Thursday, a federal judge struck down a statute that allowed for national day of prayer. It was a victory for secular thinkers and atheists who aren't sure who to thank. (Israel Carrasco)

      The National Day of Prayer was ruled unconstitutional by a U. S. Court of Appeals Thursday. It won't stand. The case will be appealed to the U. S. Supreme Court, where six Catholics, two Jews, and a ninety-year-old man are said to be tilting towards God. (Argus Hamilton)

      The Supreme Court, on an 8-to-1 vote, killed a law making it a crime to sell videos depicting animal cruelty. They didn't just kill it; they plucked its little wings off one at a time and then set it in the sun under a magnifying glass. (Jerry Perisho)

      221 years ago, George Washington went to the library here in New York, took out some books, never returned them. 221 years of overdue library fines. I tell you something, ladies and gentlemen, if you want to blame this economic crisis on a president, what about that guy? (David Letterman)


      The Colonel’s new “Double Down” sandwich contains 1/3 pound of beef and melted American cheese nestled between two deep-fried chicken filets. For 99 cents more, you can get the “Double Down DF” which includes a portable heart defibrillator with two all-beef paddles. (Bob Mills)

      I just saw a commercial for that new KFC "Double Down" sandwich. Do you really want the name of your food to sound risky? Isn't "Double Down" a gambling term? I mean, if they're going for truth in advertising, why not just call it "the Double Bypass"? (Tim Hunter)

      According to a recent survey, Democrats tend to be fans of the NBA, tennis and WWE Wrestling, while Republicans are more into professional golf, college football and NASCAR.
