Gastro green

They'll eat anything: A young grizzly struck and killed by a car in Juneau, Alaska, had been feasting on broccoli and crayons, wildlife officers said.

If it weren't for the broccoli, we'd say the bear ate just like a 4-year-old kid.

Pardon my promise: In an annual tradition begun by Ronald Reagan, President Barack Obama on Wednesday pardoned two Thanksgiving turkeys.

The turkeys thus were spared from the roasting pan, but animal-rights activists expressed concern for the birds' fate after hearing Obama tell them, "If you like the petting zoo you've got, you can keep it."

Splitting the sheets: A judge on Tuesday finalized the divorce of Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher.

The couple, who wed in 2005, cited irreconcilable differences, and also the fact that their unlikely marriage wasn't doing much to help their flagging careers, so why bother?

Christmas camp: The holiday TV special season kicks into high gear tonight with "The Lady Gaga & the Muppets Holiday Spectacular," featuring RuPaul and Elton John.

Holiday TV hasn't been this over the top since ABC aired "Bianca Jagger's Studio 54 Christmas" in 1978.
