Easy-Bake for him

Easy-Bake for him

Hasbro announced Monday that it's redesigning the Easy-Bake Oven, just days after a 13-year-old New Jersey girl launched an online campaign demanding that the toy be made more boy-friendly.

The redesigned Easy-Bake will be black, blue and silver instead of pink and purple, but more importantly, The Buzz wonders what wattage of light bulb will be needed to cook manly fare like Buffalo wings and pizza.

Eat your vegetables: Speaking of children and food, Tropicana will soon roll out a new line of juices that contain vegetables. The product will be aimed at parents who hope to sneak some veggies into their children's diet.

If the Tropicana food scientists can bamboozle kids into consuming beets, they deserve a Nobel Prize in chemistry.

Raging Bubba: Oscar-winning filmmaker Martin Scorcese will direct a documentary on Bill Clinton.

The film will air on HBO -- except the part about the Monica Lewinsky scandal, which will be shown at midnight on Cinemax.
