No bone to pick with you

Hello, boneless chicken ranch? Kentucky Fried Chicken announced that starting April 14 it will offer boneless chicken pieces for those who find eating around a drumstick bone too much of a chore.

Those diners who are looking for extra convenience might also be interested in KFC's new Chicken Swirly, plump seasoned chicken pieces churned into a delicious slurry.

What's Bob Ferguson? Chopped liver? President Barack Obama, D-White House Dog House, has apologized to California Attorney General Kamala Harris for calling her "the best-looking attorney general," during a Democratic fundraiser earlier in the week. A White House spokesman said Obama admitted it was wrong of him to judge a professional woman on her appearance.

Not to mention that it also caused some hurt feelings among the 49 other state attorneys general.

That's some pet rock: The chairman of the Senate science and space subcommittee announced that NASA is planning a mission in which a robotic spacecraft will lasso a 500-ton, 25-foot asteroid and drag it into the moon's orbit for later study by a crew of astronauts, possibly by 2021. Planning for the mission will start with $100 million to find the right asteroid.

But under current sequestration limits, the plan now calls for each member of Congress to be given a baseball mitt and told to stand out in a field and wait to snag the next asteroid that comes by.
