By Ty Bannerman [ Wed Mar 11 2015 11:19 AM ]
The Daily Word

Good morning, it’s Wednesday, March 11,

and the New Mexico senate has killed an anti-union bill,

Sandia Labs is trying to hack into your iPhone,

Breaking Bad fans keep throwing pizzas on some lady’s NE Heights home,

video game designers still don’t know how boobs work,

members of the University of Oklahoma’s SAE fraternity are sorry for being so racist,

and a Florida woman is running from the law because she doesn’t want her 4-year-old son circumcised.

Have a great day!

The Daily Word in Charlie Hebdo

By Ty Bannerman [ Wed Jan 7 2015 1:00 PM ]
The Daily Word

Armed gunmen burst into an editorial meeting at the French satiric weekly Charlie Hebdo and murdered twelve people, including journalists and police officers.

The newspaper, often provocative and controversial, had a reputation for publishing cartoons that lampooned all sectors of society, but especially religion and politics.

In 2005, it drew worldwide attention for publishing caricatures of the prophet Muhammad.

The gunmen, who reportedly shouted "Allahu Ackbar" and "the Prophet is avenged" may have been retaliating against the paper for this reason.

Political cartoonists across Europe gave statements in response.

Salman Rushdie expressed his solidarity with those who died.

Vigils were held worldwide.

The gunmen fled and have not yet been found.

By Ty Bannerman [ Wed Nov 5 2014 10:06 AM ]

In a stunning upset that is sure to have far-reaching ramifications, a porcupine managed to fend off a pride of lions.

Although they've been dealt a series of setbacks over the past few years, it turns out that fanged deer are still surviving in the wild.

Marijuana smokers have reason to be excited today: this video of a cute goat saying “what’ will surely benefit from being viewed while high.

In a move sure that may stoke illegal immigration fears, kissing bugs in Texas are now transmitting a disease previously though limited to Mexico.

And also I guess there was some kind of election yesterday.
