Good week, Bad week

Good week for: Carnivores, The Big Dog, The other woman; Bad week for: Lightning striking twice, Rudolph, Oversharing

Good week for:

Carnivores, after researchers at McGill University found that images of cooked meat made men calmer and less aggressive. “You would’ve already used your aggression to acquire the meat,” explained researcher Frank Kachanoff.

The Big Dog, after Bill Clinton was invited to the White House to tutor President Obama on how to recover from a midterm drubbing. Clinton took over the subsequent press briefing, holding court for more than an hour, just like the old days.

The other woman, after a survey by AshleyMadison.com, a dating website for married people seeking affairs, found that men spend twice as much on their mistresses during the holidays as they do on their wives.

Bad week for:

Lightning striking twice, after Lakewood Chiropractic in Wichita, Kan., was hit by two different cars in the same day. First, an elderly woman rammed through the front of the building and into the reception area; a few hours later an elderly man crashed into a different wall, shattering a window. No one was injured.

Rudolph, after Caffe Boa in Tempe, Ariz., started offering a special all-reindeer menu for the holidays. Some of the dishes include caribou-tongue bruschetta and pappardelle with caribou Bolognese.

Oversharing, after Twitter-obsessed mother Rachel Ince, from Leicester, England, posted 190 tweets while she was giving birth. Among her tweets: “Ohh I actually groaned during that contraction—things are looking up!”
