Only because Viagra isn't a word in the dictionary yet..
A new study to be published in Psychological Science finds that the more attractive a woman is to a guy, the more likely he is to overestimate her interest in him.

So that's why the mullet with the cut off sleeves and the puka shell choker keeps nodding and winking at me!

The New York Post says they learned of the practice when Jeter accidentally had a two-night stand and sent the woman home with the same gift basket twice. 12/13/11 6:06pm ET
I thought it was a little impersonal but the tiny DJ on the morning after pill was a nice touch..
Donald Trump has backed out of moderating a Republican debate because he's still considering running for president as an independent.

''We're teaching our kids class warfare!'' he said. ''Where are we, communist China?'' 12/5/11 4:24pm ET
Umm if this were communist China, Eric, there would be a one muppet per movie limit. And Miss Piggy and Janice would've been drowned at birth.

Turns out the group of investers are old buddies of King's from an earlier investment, The Luisiana Purchase.
