Pixillated pixie

Nothing to see here, folks: As promised, prosecutors in Miami released police video Thursday of Justin Bieber giving a urine sample for a drug test after his DUI arrest, with the naughty bits blacked out as ordered by a judge, who said the pop star “still retains his expectation of dignity".

Not with that haircut he doesn’t, your honor.

Balloon animals, too: A subsidiary of Berkshire Hathaway has purchased AA Party Rentals, which has done business in the Puget Sound area for more than 40 years.

The Buzz hopes this means we can look forward to the upcoming “Have Warren Buffet do face painting at your kid’s birthday party” promotion.

Don’t know much about history: On this day in 1994, the U.S. Supreme Court unanimously ruled that a parody that pokes fun at an original work can be considered “fair use” that doesn’t require permission from the copyright holder.

One could regard this decision as a victory for free speech and artistic expression. Or one could see it as evidence that all nine justices were secret “Weird Al” Yankovic fans.
