“I read the news today, oh boy ...” (Saint Clare of Assisi Edition)

This morning, you can spend two and a half minutes watching Anthony Weiner lose it (again), this time while mocking a British television reporter in the course of his run for mayor of New York City, or ...

Meanwhile, elsewhere on planet Earth:

Speaking of losing it, an ABC newsman became an ABC newswoman, and two days later, went back to being an ABC newsman. Naturally, he (or she) can explain. (World News Daily)

Elsewhere on the "idiot box," MTV is putting out a call for talent to do a program on previously unexplored territory, at least for them. (Entertainment Weekly)

In yet another story of the best laid plans of mice and men, a 47-story skyscraper was built in Benidorm, Spain, for which one detail somehow missed the drawing board. (Gizmodo)

Hey, they can print three-dimensional objects now, can't they? Well, that's not all they can do in the lab, as science marches on (although you may want fries with it). (BBC)

Finally, a bit of sage advice for all you women out there who want to keep the man in your life happy, although some might argue that such counsel is a bit, uh, dated. (mental_floss)

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