1.        George Clooney and his wife, Amal, are building a “panic room” where they can run and hide if suddenly faced with a major threat.  ***  For example, if one of them started to lose their good looks.

2.        In an interview with Seth Meyers, Allison Williams defended her beleaguered father, newsman Brian Williams.  ***  She said, “Now, as I remember that helicopter ride….”

3.        Mars One, an organization that is planning a permanent mission to the red planet, has announced the 100 finalists for the one-way voyage. They were selected from an initial list of 200,000 candidates,  ***  most of whom were nominated by their in-laws.

4.        As a promotion for his upcoming Comedy Central roast, Justin Bieber was shown getting hit in the face with an egg.   So, apparently there are “Beliebers” ***  and there are “Eggthiests.”

5.        Yesterday Detroit police had to deal with an armed man who had barricaded himself inside a home.  ***  Really?  Someone wanted to lock himself IN Detroit?

6.        Because they could not agree on terms, Costco is ending a 16 year agreement that gave exclusivity to the American Express credit card. ***  So, American Express has a new slogan: “Okay, now you can leave home without it.”

7.        Singer-songwriter Leslie Gore has died at age 68.  She was perhaps best known for singing, “It’s my party and I’ll cry if I want to.”  ***  The song was later covered by John Boehner and the GOP.

8.        Hasbro has come out with a high powered Nerf gun that can shoot a foam ball at 70 mph and is intended for use by adults.  ***   For example, seniors like it for settling disputes at bingo games.

9.        (Groaner Alert) A new video on the Internet shows a sheep who was raised with collies and now thinks she’s a dog. *** You should hear her b-a-a-a-a-rk.

10.     In honor of its 30th anniversary in March, the iconic movie “The Breakfast Club” will be shown at 430 theaters across the country.  ***  But, in recognition of its aging audience, the breakfasts will be digitally altered to include more soft foods, fiber and prunes.
