Connecticut State Representative Tim Larson is proposing that the state declare the last Saturday in October as Halloween since it would make life easier for parents and safer for trick-or-treaters to always have it on the weekend.

Tired of showing up in your Ferrari and pulling up next to someone who’s driving the exact same car? Heck, if you wanted to look like everyone else you’d shop at Target, fer Christ’s sake!

He also suggested that fewer people would drown if they’d quit going swimming, people wouldn’t fall down the stairs if they moved into one-story houses, and scabs heal faster if you don’t pick them.
According to the European Brand Institute, Apple has replaced Coca-Cola as the #1 global brand. Coca-Cola’s board of directors has asked the CEO if he wouldn’t mind dying so they can get on the cover of Time, Newsweek, BusinessWeek, and every newspaper in the world and boost their global image.
Like many people this time of the year, a family went on an outing to the corn maze at Connors Farm in Danvers, Massachusetts. Like a lot of families, they got lost in the 7-acre maze. Unlike the rest of those families, they panicked when it started getting dark and called 911. An officer and K-9 unit went out to the farm, found the family, and hopefully escorted them home. While singing A-maze-ing Grace I suspect.
To help celebrate their 40th anniversary, Starbucks asked designer Alexander Wang to create a limited edition T-shirt. The white T-shirt has a large fake coffee stain on it with the Starbucks’ woman hidden in the stain. You can pick one up at Nordstrom’s or Starbucks for only $85.
