1. Trailer of beers

    We wouldn’t put it beyond Brit and K-Fed to shack up in a trailer park — have ya seen him not in a ‘beater? But we bring you a different desperate housewife altogether. Yes, it’s solar-powered. Yes, it’s set on an organic farm. But really, T-Hatch — a trailer?

  2. Baby got humpback

    Hoping to spur action against Japanese whaling, animal-rights group IFAW last week announced the winners of its Whale Remix Project, which asked devoted DJs and empathetic electronic artists to create a remix sampling humpback whale songs. Nothing like high-pitched squealing to get those asses on the dance floor.

  3. Put it in Earthpark

    A 70-acre indoor rainforest and eco-learning center is set to be built in the most obvious of places: central Iowa. Opening Earth Day 2010, Earthpark will be part of a development that includes condos, a resort hotel, and a water park. Earthy!

  4. All that litter will get scold(ed)

    Big Brother is doing more than just watching these days — he’s reprimanding. Though the U.K.’s talking security cameras are meant for brawls and disorderly conduct, they’re also catching litterbugs. Um, can we get one of these installed in the White House?

  5. Incredible Hulk

    Mustachioed wrassler Hulk Hogan insists he knows best when it comes to stricter laws against cock- and dog-fighting. In a video sent to House reps, Hogan lays the smackdown, suggesting animal-fight organizers be hit with a “felonious legdrop.” Agreed.
