Who is the true King? Elvis vs Michael Jackson

For years the argument has raged between generations as to who is the true king, Elvis Presley or Michael Jackson. Slap the Penguin finally closes that discussion like a slamming door.

We will look at each singer's track record, compare and contrast their styles and rate their achievements in their own genre against their peers.

We have taken subjectivity and guesswork out of the equation and put these two legends head to head in a one of it's kind Deadliest Warrior Deathmatch.

WTF? - Brett Favre's Green Bay Pecker

I decided to wait a while before posting my thoughts about the whole Brett Favre situation. By situation I mean his lacklustre performance so far this season for the Vikings, his constant battle with old age injury and the lewd text messages including images of his penis, allegedly sent to Jenn Sterger.

A cool photo montage to graphically represent the story highlights.

For our teenage readers, here are the words to
Justin Beaver
You know you love me, eh?
Justin Beaver - Baby

you know you love me,
i know you care,
you shout whenever,
and i'll be there,
you want my love,
you want my heart,
and we will never ever ever be apart,

girl quit playing,
we're just friends,
what are you sayin'
is that there's another,
then look right in my eyes,
my first love, broke my heart for the first time

WTF? - The New Penny

Have you seen the new penny yet? I found one in my change yesterday and had to double check that I had not been given a foreign coin. Well, it had Honest Abe on the front and I know he won't lie to me, but I was quite taken aback by the flip-side/posterior/reverse/tail of said currency unit.

Dora the Explorer's real father is A-Rod

Almost every parent in the United States knows the diminutive explorer, Dora. The cute little girl who helps our children learn with the assistance of her talking monkey friend, Boots and a magical backpack, imaginatively named Backpack. But within Dora's history is a darker secret that she herself is just coming to terms with. For years, we as innocent voyeurs of Dora's adventures had assumed that the man she calls 'Papi' is her father. In a shocking revelation we have found this to be untrue.
