* A weird new souvenir item is available in Great Britain -- official royal baby barf bags. One more Barbara Walters hourlong special on the royal baby, and I may need one.
* Just make sure you get the official royal baby barf bags. You wouldn't want the tacky knock-off baby barf bags.
* George Brett has stepped down as the Kansas City Royals' interim batting coach. To give you an idea how much the Royals were struggling when he started, a guy walking around the world backward said, "I wouldn't want a challenge that big."
* This means President Obama once again has the toughest job in the country.
* According to a new report, at least one NBA player may be linked to a Biogenesis clinic in Florida. The NBA commissioner is vowing to come down hard ... unless it's a member of the Charlotte Bobcats, who can use all the help they can get.
* New York City mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner has plunged to 16 percent in the polls. He's philosophical. That's still four percent higher than his approval rating would be if he'd stayed in Congress.
* Facebook stock surged 31 percent after a positive earnings report. One avid Facebook user was so excited, he was going to call all his friends, but then he realized he didn't actually know any of his friends.
* Imagine how well Facebook would be doing if its users could figure out even one new feature?
* After the stock soared, Mark Zuckerberg decided to splurge by upgrading his mo-ped and buying the $9 shirts at Gap.
* The Edmonton Oilers fired coach Ralph Krueger over Skype. Ah, the age we live in. Krueger was then able to moon the owner on Instagram.
* The University of Oregon has unveiled new football uniforms. The U.S. Surgeon General warned the uniforms are not to be viewed with the naked eye.
* University of Florida linebacker Antonio Morrison was arrested for allegedly barking at a police dog. The interesting thing is -- this was the last crime a football player had not committed in the past six months.
* A Washington Redskins fan received a "Redskins-themed funeral" and a Cleveland Browns fan took a shot at the franchise in his obituary. Who says we take football too seriously?
