• Forget Starbucks and Red Bull. The hottest energy drink in Peru is frog juice, considered capable of curing asthma, bronchitis and sluggishness. Others even view it as “Peruvian Viagra” for increasing sex drives. If anyone decides to create an advertising campaign, Kermit and Miss Piggy are perfect spokescritters.
• CBS News.com is banning reader responses because stories about Sen. Barack Obama have been receiving too many racist comments. A spokesperson said, “We have our rules of engagement. … They prohibit personal attacks, especially racist attacks. Stories about Obama have been problematic, and we won’t tolerate it.” Look for Don Imus to add another charge to his upcoming lawsuit against CBS.
