Last night, controversial Russian Ice Dancers Oksana Domnina and Maxim Shabalin revealed their toned-down Aboriginal-themed costumes during the free skate performance that brought them to a current bronze medal position.

What a difference a few leaves make

Hmm. We’re still searching for the “interesting,” “respectful” and “Southeast Asian” nuances that this team keeps referring to regarding their costumes. Surely all of that “big research” they did to keep the performance authentic paid off somewhere.

Give us a few minutes days months years. This may take awhile.

Oh, thank goodness!!

Our beautiful state of Hawaii did not get nuked over the 4th of July weekend.

Instead, North Korea fired seven missiles (potentially modified longer-range missiles, to boot) into the East Sea, giving the finger to three UN’s security council resolutions and provoking its neighboring country of Japan.

Um, yay?
