Hank Williams, Jr. made a reference to Hitler while excoriating Barack Obama and immediately lost his job as opening singer on Monday Night Football.  They we're a tad unfeeling in notifying him.  The six-word telegram read:  "Are you ready for some unemployment?"

The pastor of Kansas City's Westboro Baptist Church urged his followers to picket Steve Jobs' funeral because he "failed to give God glory."  He's just mad because Steve commandeered the apple Adam took a bite out of and parlayed it into the world's best-known corporate logo.

Several new generations will be introduced to 1960s super-thrush Madonna when she performs at the Super Bowl this year.  She'll pay tribute to her original fans with a special "Early Bird Halftime" just for them.
