We were off yesterday. What? What do you mean you didn't even notice?
Be sure to check out all the abusive Hill-mails that you guys left for Greg after he headed down to Miami this weekend to spend a little QT with his boy Gronk.
A husband in Oregon was forced to call 911 after he and his family were trapped in the bedroom... by the family cat. Yes, that's right. The family cat. I can't judge, as I have had more than one run-in with a frightening feral, but I digress. Check out the terrifying report here.
I think many of you may share Greg's irrational fear this morning... couple of women (ha ha) got into a car crash. One of them hit a tree and knocked down a hollowed-out limb that had a bees nest in it. The older woman was stung over 1,000 times. GAH!

You people want to give me a hard time for not being married yet A couple got married over the weekend, and on Sunday night, hopped on a Delta flight in Atlanta for their honeymoon in Costa Rica. But once they were in the air, things got bad. The groom was drunk, and got a massive drunken argument with his brand new wife. It got so bad that the flight was diverted to the Cayman Islands . . . where the guy was escorted off the plane and arrested for drunk and disorderly conduct. Meanwhile, the bride decided to continue on to Costa Rica without him. So right now she's in Costa Rica on her honeymoon, solo, and he's still locked up in the Cayman Islands. The couple's names weren't released. We do know they are U.S. citizens, but that's it. The man could be facing more charges under international air laws.
And finally, if you didn't already think Bieber was a douche, here's some video of him pretending to nod off during his deposition.
