WHAT'S HARDER THAN SUDOKU?

Coming up with an answer for this question.

MICHELLE OBAMA IS FAMOUSLY PLANTING AN ORGANIC GARDEN ON THE WHITE HOUSE LAWN. WHAT DO YOU THINK SHE'LL END UP PUTTING IN THAT GARDEN?
I think Michelle Obama will end up putting in a row of tomato plants, a lemon tree, and an acre of hemp. I can recommend a good strain if she's looking for an advisor. It’s really great for making rope and stuff.

THE NEWSPAPER INDUSTRY CONTINUES TO PLUMMET. WHEN IT FINALLY DIES, WHAT SHOULD THE EULOGY BE?
“Poor Newspaper, if only our relationship wasn’t limited to only spending time together in the restroom.” I’m not sure about the middle of the eulogy, but the beginning would be: “Extra! Extra! Read all about it! The families of the Newspaper Industry would like to thank the handful of surviving newspaper readers for being here, as well as the millions of people tuning into this service online.” And end with an old joke: “What’s black and white and in the red all over? The Newspaper Industry. If the Newspaper Industry were here right now, he probably would’ve chuckled at that one.”

WHAT'S YOUR PREDICTION FOR THE NEXT DATING TREND?
Whaling.

DID YOU GET YOUR TICKETS FOR THE JONAS BROTHERS CONCERT IN JULY?!
I would rather run the risk of dropping the soap at a maximum-security prison than attend a Jonas Brothers concert in July.

    If only there were some way to watch a con-artist houseboy give his cougar sugar mama a squirming reach-around, charm the pants off a candy-necklace string of countless empty-eyed Hollywood stick figures, lose his heart to an untouchable social chameleon, and, in the process, find himself .
  •   NORTHERN EXPOSURE  |  July 29, 2009
    While New York is grittier, Los Angeles juicier, and Boston is wicked smahter, for some odd reason it is Montreal that, for two weeks every summer, becomes the epicenter of the comedy universe.

  •   BEAT THE TWEET  |  July 22, 2009
    Warm weather is supposed to be accessorized by lackaday, by a breezy sensibility best enjoyed with a frosty tall boy in one hand, the sloppy product of a back-yard barbecue in the other. Instead, I find myself struggling to balance my beer between my knees and my overstocked paper plate on my thigh as I furiously poke at my BlackBerry.
