I never want to split up with my wife... but if, heaven forbid that should ever happen, I hope the final fight is replayed for some random person via parrot on a daily basis.

A North Carolina woman who adopted a cockatoo parrot named Peaches also gained a fun party trick: a daily, aggressive reenactment of your parents' divorce.

I think it should be mandatory that the parrot be brought to the deposition.

"There must be some sort of business model that enables this company to make money, but I'll be damned if I know what it is," 
FORT WORTH, TX—After a thorough review of its operations, RadioShack CEO Julian Day could provide no real explanation for the analog- riddled company's staying power.

I hear the new company jingle is "Nationwide your child might die"...
 
Nationwide Insurance killed a kid in a Super Bowl ad.

Not really. Not any more than Doritos sent a pig off on a rocket pack, again probably to certain death if you pause to consider it.

But Nationwide rubbed a lot of people the wrong way.

First comment I made after seeing that commercial was "nation wide is on your side?" I felt sorry for the commercial after that.

Announcing the official death of SXSW credibility.


South By Southwest has long attracted forward-thinking brands looking to capitalize on a captive audience of technology innovators, entertainment industry leaders, drunk college kids, and other people you wouldn’t want to spend 10 days standing next to in line.

I like how McDonalds does all of this marketing, focus groups on how to improve the restaurant experience, deliver food, etc... Anything but serve good quality food.

Illinois has needed this forever. I like what I'm seeing from this guy so far.
 
Gov. Bruce Rauner said Monday that Illinois must curb government union powers and reduce spending on state employees' salaries and benefits, stepping up what labor leaders said is an attempt to "vilify" workers ahead of the Republican's first major policy speech.

I believe this restaurant relocated from 27th and Howard to this current location for more room; This location is much larger, and can accommodate far more tables. They also appear to have added some sort of entertainment (there's a stage and some speakers, and I see fliers up for some sort of concert / singing performers every time I'm in, which seems a bit out of place). Don't let this fool you, though, the food is extremely fresh, and authentically Vietnamese. The Pho is probably my second favorite in town, which is saying a lot considering the recent explosion of offerings in the Milwaukee area. The Bun-mi dishes are also very fresh, delicious, and authentic. Bonus points because they also deliver (although for some reason not the night I ordered).

The Basilica is probably the most beautiful thing to see in Milwaukee. It is architecturally beautiful, and the dome and ceilings are painted with incredible murals. Definitely catch the Sunday 10am Mass with the choir if you're able.

Seasonal menu of comfort food. The pulled pork is exquisite. Whether it's brunch, lunch, or dinner, the food is always great. You'll be stuffed, but should probably gets a cupcake or slice of pie to go.

The food here is just okay. You might want to clear your schedule for a nap after eating here, as most everything on the menu is pretty rich. Beer selection is great, although pretty expensive. The bloody Marys are very good, but once again, a bit on the expensive side for what you get. The bottom line is that there are many other places in the area where the atmosphere and food are just as good, if not better, and you'll leave with a much lower bill. Also, they always seem to scree up at least one thing with my order every time.

Cozy place to enjoy some drinks on a cold winter night. Darts, pool, skeeball. Decorated like your friend's basement. You know, the one with the parents that liked to party...

Consistent, delicious, and affordable. One of the best burgers in town, too. If you're not feeling that, the Mediterranean Steak Pita is fantastic. Just remember to get a "little bit of both" for as a side. Blue Cheese dipping sauce should also be a big "Yes".

The food from Pizza Shuttle is alright, but the fact that the deliver into the wee hours of the morning makes it a go-to for the East Side bar crowd. I'd definitely go with this, though, ahead of Pizza Hut, Domino's, or some other chain.
