If you think Roman Catholic priests don’t know how to have fun, think again.
American Reverends David Rider and John Gibson are in seminary at the elite Pontifical North American College in Rome, just up the hill from the Vatican. During a fundraiser at the college, the men got into a lively dance battle that garnered a standing ovation…
If the pictures of “parenting” featured on many stock image sites are to be believed, having kids is all bright smiles, bright kitchens, and bright clothes. But, as anyone who has kids (or anyone who has ever even seen a kid) can attest…this is all a lie.
Over at the site It’s Like They Know Us, moms with a sarcastic flair can submit their favorite, most ridiculous stock image of motherhood accompanied by an acerbic caption. The contrast between the pseudo-serenity in the imagery and the biting mockery in the commentary is perfect.

Mark “Marty” Rathbun left the organization ten years ago after 25 years, during which time he’d risen to become the second highest official. As he was leaving LAX for his home in Texas recently, he was confronted by three current top officials whom he identified as Jenny Linson, Marc Yager, and Dave Bloomberg.
