The Saturday Night Joke

An old tired-looking dog wanders into a guy's yard. He checks the dog's collar and feels his well-fed belly and knows the dog has a home.

The dog follows him into the house and jumps on the couch, gets comfortable and falls asleep. The man thinks its rather odd, but lets him sleep. After about an hour the dog wakes up, walks to the door and the guy lets him out. The dog wags his tale and leaves.

The next day the dog comes back and scratches at the door. The guy opens the door, the dog comes in and jumps on the couch, gets comfortable and falls asleep again. The man lets him sleep. After about an hour the dog wakes up, walks to the door and the guy lets him out. The dog wags his tale and leaves.

This goes on for days. The guy grows really curious, so he pins a note on the dog's collar: "Your dog has been taking a nap at my house every day."

The next day the dog shows up with another note pinned to his collar: "He lives in a home with four kids-- he's trying to catch up on his sleep. Can I come with him tomorrow?'(H/T Hrothgar)

Maps Reveal Each U.S. state’s Biggest Export – and Where It’s Shipped to

In 2022, the U.S. trade deficit surged to almost $1 trillion, with America importing $948.1 billion more than it exported. This marked a $103 billion increase from the previous year’s deficit. The rise occurred amid efforts by the U.S. and its partners to reshape global supply chains in the aftermath of pandemic disruptions and trade barriers, particularly with China — with whom America has a $382.9 billion trade deficit.

However, the U.S. maintained its position as the world’s second-largest exporter, with exports totaling around $2.1 trillion last year, contributing to 8.4% of global exports. A notable success story was the agricultural sector, with U.S. agriculture exports alone reaching $213 billion.

The 2023 top Wikipedia searches.

NEW YORK (AP) — Remember what you searched for in 2023? Well, Wikipedia has the receipts.

English Wikipedia raked in more than 84 billion views this year, according to numbers released Tuesday by the Wikimedia Foundation, the non-profit behind the free, publicly edited online encyclopedia. And the most popular article was about ChatGPT (yes, the AI chatbot that’s seemingly everywhere today).

Since its launch just over a year ago, OpenAI’s ChatGPT has skyrocketed into the public’s consciousness as the technology makes its way into schools, health care, law and even religious sermons. The chatbot has also contributed to growing debates about the promise and potential dangers of generative AI, much of which is documented on its Wikipedia page.

Show me the man and I'll show you the crime. Or in this case some strange ones.

You could be breaking the law in your own state right now and not even know it. Throughout U.S. history, all 50 states have passed a variety of highly specific, often bizarre laws — some that may have made sense at the time but definitely don’t any longer. In every state, you’ll find a few of these quirky laws that are rarely enforced but, for whatever reason, remain on the books. Here are eight obscure state laws you’ve probably never heard of.

Man Arrested, Jailed While Wearing "I Just Got Out Of Prison" Shirt

A man wearing a shirt declaring “I just got out of prison” was locked up anew Sunday after police responded to a 911 call about a male suspect entering a parked car and stealing a wallet.

Michael Gordon, 46, pleaded no contest yesterday to a misdemeanor obstruction charge and was sentenced to five days in custody and fined $500, Florida court records show.

The criminal count against Gordon stemmed from his refusal to identify himself to deputies probing the reported auto break-in. A portable fingerprint scanner was used to identify Gordon, who told cops to “Call my lawyer
