Dear Readers:
At first I was going to call this piece ‘**** of the year,” but the title was a little TOO graphic ………, plus my crudeness would cause problems with “The Mrs. Herself,” and I don’t need aggravation here at home too!

So, here it is: In the everything’s-relative department: A judge this week awarded Sue Ann Hamm $995 million, along with assets including a ranch and a home in Oklahoma, in her divorce from oil magnate hubby Harold.
Her response: It’s nowhere near enough, reports Reuters .
asshole trophyHamm plans to appeal, arguing that the Continental Resources CEO amassed the bulk of his fortune (figure about $14 billion) during their 26-year marriage.
As of now, he ranks No. 35 among rich Americans, notes the New York Post.
They might yet end up with the priciest divorce ever.
Folks, I know ya can’t total things up this way anymore, but………………, somebody should ask her how much of that 14 billion she actually went out and earned herself!

A couple of million (45) is more than enough to keep anyone in lollipops and ice-cream for the rest of their lives, so what’s she going to do with the other 950 millions dollars?
And why isn’t that ENOUGH?

Johnny Depp’s awkward speech during at the Hollywood Film Awards on Friday has caught fire online.
The “Into the Woods” actor took to the stage to honor Shep Gordon, storied talent manager and the subject of Mike Myers’ documentary “Supermensch: The Legend of Shep Gordon,” and proceeded to slur his speech, swear and wobble around.
“I’m not very good at this kind of thing,” Depp said at the start, after commenting on the “weird microphone.” Maybe he was just being modest: Depp has presented at numerous awards shows in the past without a hitch, including the 2009 Golden Globes Awards. Perhaps, like Depp said, it was “just one of those nights.” Watch the speech below and decide for yourself.

Big debate going on about an Indian (Native American) family that wants to take their 11 year old daughter off medication for cancer and feed her nuts and berries instead.
They claim that this is a traditional Indian herbal therapy and is protected under “freedom of religion” legislation!
Listen kids, if Indians still did things in the “traditional” way…………….., they would still be living in TENTS!
Unfortunately, this little girl is going to pay for her parents ignorance with her LIFE!
Well boys and girls, they have a new “smart pill” that’s all the rage now!
It’s reported that 1 in 5 students take the drug Modafinil in hopes of boosting their academic performance, but this so-called “smart drug” may actually impair their ability to answer questions quickly and correctly, a new study finds.
Of course, it seems to us that anyone who relies on a pill to increase their intelligence is not that smart to begin with!
AND FROM “SNOPES.COM”: Is Walmart going to start selling sharia compliant meat?
Origins: On 12 November 2014, Miami (Ohio) University’s student newspaper, The Miami Student, published an article about a local Walmart’s decision to add a halal meat section to their grocery aisles:
Upon the request of Muslim students at Miami University, Walmart recently made the decision to provide halal-certified meat at the Oxford location. Store manager Elijah Woodard made a formal announcement on Oct. 21 that the store would be accommodating these requests.
“I appreciated the students bringing this interest to our attention,” Woodard said. “I am pleased to announce that we have set a halal meat section in the store.”
Visiting assistant professor Tareq Hasan Khan and the Muslim Student Association (MSA) had petitioned all local grocers to carry Halal meat. So far, the local Walmart is the only store to have obliged to the request:
Between Khan and members of the Muslim Student Association (MSA), efforts were made to convince Walmart to provide the Halal meat. Many students reached out directly to the management at Walmart. In addition, a petition was passed around on the Internet. The petition acquired nearly 50 signatures and was directed at all Oxford grocers including MOON co-op and Kroger. Thus far, Walmart is the only provider who has responded to the requests of the Muslim students.
“For halal meat, we needed to drive from Oxford to Cincinnati, around 40 miles one way, almost every week,” Khan said. “This long drive is very tiresome and takes about two hours only to go to Cincinnati and return back.”
This case is not the first instance of a Walmart store’s choosing to carry Halal meat: Similar products have been sold at dozens of Walmart stores around the U.S. since at least 2010. Still, the announcement that the Oxford location had added a halal meat section stirred up anger on social media sites:
While some people viewed Walmart’s decision to sell halal meat as proof the company was “bowing down” to Sharia law, the Associated Press noted demand for halal products has been on the rise throughout the world:

The worldwide market for Islamically permitted goods, called halal, has grown to more than half a billion dollars annually. Ritually slaughtered meat is a mainstay, but the halal industry is much broader, including foods and seasoning that omit alcohol, pork products and other forbidden ingredients, along with cosmetics, finance and clothing. Corporations have been courting immigrant Muslim communities in Europe for several years. Nestle, for example, has about 20 factories in Europe with halal-certified production lines and advertises to Western Muslims through its marketing campaign called “Taste of Home.” Nestle plans to increase its ethnic and halal offerings in Europe in coming years. In the United States, iconic American companies such as McDonald’s (which already has a popular halal menu overseas) and Wal-Mart have entered the halal arena.
Although Walmart has opted to offer halal meat in their Oxford store, it appears it is making such decisions on a case-by-case basis rather than instituting a country-wide policy to that effect.
