Friday's Funny

A French information technology company plans to eliminate email as a way for employees to communicate.

Instead, workers will use social media tools and video conferencing -- which, unfortunately, means the annoying doofus in finance will be circulating his unfunny jokes in video format.

Mixed messages: After fining Seahawks safety Kam Chancellor for a dangerous helmet-to-helmet hit, the NFL used video of the hit in a promotional ad. Hypocrisy much? You betcha.

On the other hand, the video would be ideally suited for promoting a memory care center.

Not #%#% golden: Former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich was nailed Wednesday with a 14-year prison sentence for all manner of corruption. Blago wasn't hauled off to the hoosegow right away, as officials must find a suitable minimum-security prison for him.

The Buzz wonders if "suitable" means a facility with a prison barber capable of maintaining Blago's painstakingly sculpted coiffure.
