“I read the news today, oh boy ...” (Nativity of St John the Baptist Edition)

Here we have Megyn Kelly reporting on a man who goes ballistic at a Wendy's drive-thru window (without his car) because they gave him a cheeseburger when he ordered a hamburger. After his tirade, we get to see Megyn Kelly again. Don't you love happy endings?

Meanwhile, elsewhere on planet Earth:

Speaking of civility, someone seems to think that Canadians are acting more like Americans, and that Americans are developing attitudes like Canadians, but not exactly. Or something. (Globe and Mail)

In a related story of personal preferences, a new poll shows that Americans prefer dogs to cats by more than 30 points. It neglects to mention whether or not cats even care, which they probably don't. (Public Policy Polling)

The same study also revealed the least popular choice for a pet, which a woman found for herself in a bag of potatoes at a Walmart in North Huntington, Pennsylvania. (WTAE-TV)

Something else that may or may not be popular, depending on how it turns out for you, is where to spend the next apocalypse. The perfect choice, if you can afford it, is near Achiston, Kansas. (Fox News)

Finally, if you prefer happier endings (with or without Megyn Kelly), watch this video showing five men catching a little girl as she fell from a five-story building in China's Zhejiang province. (BBC)

And that's all the news that fits. As the week goes on, stay tuned, and stay in touch.
