* Happy Cyber Monday. This is when American employees turn off their funny cat videos at work and spend all day ordering stuff off the Kohl's website.
* More people are in the stores this year, but, they're buying less. So we're basically hitting the mall to watch other shoppers wrestle on the floor.
* On "60 Minutes" Sunday night, Amazon's Jeff Bezos said the company was working on delivering items by small drone. This means the Amazon mailroom has superior military technology to the North Korean military.
* Imagine if Amazon items are delivered by drone? They'd still get there half as fast as Jimmy John's sandwiches.
* Friday President Obama met with Barbara Walters. Which means on the list of celebrities he meets he's up to the Ws.
* CNN host/anchor Erin Burnett gave birth to a baby boy. To CNN it's not just a baby - it's a future viewer.
* Tom Osborne, the big boosters and members of the Board of Regents all issued statements supporting the Nebraska football coach. All that's left is for Lil' Red to slap an "I Heart Bo" sticker on his bicycle.
* The University of Florida football team fired its offensive coordinator. What a shock. I didn't even know that Florida had an offensive coordinator.
* The comet flying near the sun fizzled on Thanksgiving. A comet flying near the sun? Gee, I can't imagine what went wrong here. Let me think.
* A video of a bunny rabbit eating in slow motion has gone viral. Great. Instead of watching a four-minute funny cat video at work, now we're watching eight-minute slow motion bunny videos.
* O.J. Simpson's bid for a new trial has been denied by the highest authority. The president of HLN?
* North Korea and South Korea are in talks about allowing family reunions to take place between citizens of the two nations. Bad idea. Take it from a veteran of his share of family reunions over the holidays: there's no faster way to start a world war.
* An automobile dealer in Monroe, Michigan offered anyone who bought a car last week a full refund if Michigan shut out Ohio State. Too bad he didn't offer something with better odds. Say, a refund if the moon spins out of control and crashes into Mars.
* Reportedly Jon Bon Jovi wants to purchase the Buffalo Bills. Talk about living on a prayer.
* During the Thanksgiving Day game Green Bay Packers cornerback Tramon Williams pushed a referee. I only hope this poor sportsmanship doesn't rub off on the impressionable, young Detroit Lions.
* When cops pulled Jose Canseco over about a week ago, they found live goats in his backseat with one wearing a diaper. OK, now here's where the story starts to get weird...
* New York City named a street Mariano Rivera Way. There are also plans to name a street after A-Rod - it's a dead end.
