* New North Korean leader Kim Jong Un just got married. The bride wore something old, something borrowed and something blue. For something old, she tied food from a North Korean grocery store to her gown.

* Apple badly missed on quarterly revenue forecasts. The forecast was off by so much, Apple executives have been named honorary Omaha TV meteorologists.

* Mitt Romney arrived in Great Britain on Wednesday and met some British people. This is Romney's new strategy – surround himself with folks even more uptight than he is.

* Lee Terry may get a speaking role at the Republican National Convention. Terry has been asked to reminisce about when he was first elected to Congress and served under President Taft.

* Instead of actually speaking, Terry plans to play a prerecorded robocall.

* Last Friday, there was three possible mountain lion sightings in York County. York County is so popular with mountain lions, now the cougars are weekending there.

* Omaha.com has something called the Big Red Bracket where you can vote on your favorite Nebraska football moment of the past 50 years. This is similar to the Nebraska Senate race, only with more interest from Nebraskans.

* Bill Clinton revealed his "vices" to CNN. If you missed the program, it will rerun Friday from 8 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.

* Clinton went on CNN to reveal his vices. This has been compared to going to confession. The difference between CNN and confession being, in confession you know one person is listening.

* A mother who attended a Justin Bieber concert is suing for $9.2 million because it was too loud. One commentator said, "If she wins, every parent who attends a Justin Bieber concert with their kid will be entitled to $9.2 million." Yeah, that sounds about right.

*A Texas grandmother said that after two TSA agents took a look at a gastric tube she wore, they both groaned "Ugh!" Again, emphasizing that the "S" in TSA doesn't stand for sensitivity.

* Actor Fred Willard has been fired from the PBS series "Market Warriors" after being accused of a lewd act in a movie theater. If this is what the talent on PBS does in their free time, I hate to think what the hosts on Spike TV are up to.

* Alabama coach Nick Saban's daughter is being sued over a fight with a sorority sister. Her dad has a lot of questions. Being familiar with Nick Saban, I'm guessing the first question is, "Did you win?"

* Big Ten Media Days begin Thursday. The event officially gets under way when coach Bo Pelini throws out the first reporter.

* In Oakland, Seattle Seahawk running back Marshawn Lynch was arrested on suspicion of DUI. To add insult to injury, when he arrived at the Oakland jail, all 400 Raiders fans in the holding cell booed him.
