Saginaw County Sheriff William Federspiel went out and bought some new prison jumpsuits for the inmates at his Michigan jail to replace the traditional orange ones of the past.
They've got black and white horizontal stripes. It's because the sheriff noted the people are now wearing orange jumpsuits "out at the mall or in public," and he doesn't want his inmates confused with the general population.
The fashion trend, according to the sheriff, is because of the popularity of shows like Orange Is The New Black. "Some people think it's cool to look like an inmate," he said.
So now the inmates at the Saginaw County Jail look a lot like the guy on the Get Out of Jail Free card in Monopoly.
In 2004, a pine tree was planted in Griffith Park in Los Angeles to honor George Harrison, one of the original Beatles. George spent his final days in LA, and according to most, he was an avid gardener, so the memorial was fitting.
Planted as a sapling, it grew to about 10 feet by last year. But this year, the tree was attacked by insects, and destroyed.
The insects: beetles.
Tree beetles, to be precise.
No need to look up "irony" ever again – this is the definition, right here.
Hollywood is buzzing with the thought that one of the major characters on The Simpsons, Krusty the Clown, will be killed off in the show's Season 26 premiere in September.
The show's producer has promised that there will be a major death, and says that the actor who voices the doomed character has won an Emmy. That plus the title of the season opener – "Clown in the Dumps" – has everyone thinking it will be Krusty.
Krusty is voiced by Dan Castellaneta, who also voices Homer Simpson – and he has in fact won an Emmy.
Will it happen? Will Krusty shuffle off to join Brian from Family Guy in the cartoon cemetery? (Yes, I know, Brian's departure was temporary.)
The producer says, "I didn't say I was killing Krusty… I didn't say I wasn't."
Jenny McCarthy was fired from The View a few weeks ago.
But it looks like the show's definition of "fired" is "when we come back from hiatus, you won't."
She and the-also-fired Sherri Shepherd are still on the panel, and on Tuesday's show, Jenny had some interesting comments about former First Lady, Hilary Clinton.
The View Crew was interviewing a former Secret Service agent who's written a tell-all about the "hidden lives" of the presidents. In it, he claims that Bill Clinton has a mistress nicknamed "Energizer."
Sherri didn't believe it, saying that Bill and Hilary always seem "to be so in love."
Jenny suggested that maybe the two have an arrangement where "he has his girlfriends, and she has her girlfriends."
Whoopi Goldberg jumped into the fray, saying you can't get between the Clintons…
