Meals on wheels

General Mills is launching a business called Betty Crocker Kitchens that will deliver prepared meals based on recipes in the legendary, and completely mythical, homemaker's cookbook.

The service is aimed at senior citizens, but The Buzz can totally see it catching on in college towns, where $8 plates of pasta delivered to your dorm room door would sound mighty tasty about 11:30 on a Friday night.

Austerity corner: Cash-strapped Greece plans to sell off 28 state-owned buildings, including the main police headquarters in Athens.

Now, we all know the police in Greece are for sale, but this is getting ridiculous.

Smoke signals: Beginning today, The world's eyes will gaze upon a simple copper stovepipe in Vatican City this week, as cardinals meet to select the next pope.

And remember: Black smoke means "No pope yet." White smoke means "Pope elected." And red smoke means "We're starving. Send 115 Betty Crocker Kitchens pot roast dinners."
