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!

  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.
