Tattoo you

Old folks these days: With the growing acceptance of body art, we're seeing tattoos even on older people, such as the woman who had her grandkids' names inked on a leg.

The Buzz is waiting for the grouchy old guy across the street to get a bangin' “Get Off My Lawn” neck tattoo.

More partisan food fights maybe? Al-Jazeera America has won high marks for its journalism during its first year on the air, but no one's watching. Viewership has averaged around 17,000, or roughly the number of people who attend to Fox News' Bill O'Reilly in the makeup chair every night.

To counter that, the cable channel aims to build brand awareness. Goal No. 1: Convince people that watching Al-Jazeera won't get you on the No-Fly List.

Nerd v. nerd: The comic book convention in San Diego is suing the comic book convention in Salt Lake City over the latter's use of the words “comic con.”.

If the case goes to trial, The Buzz thinks the parties should show up in the courtroom dressed like their favorite superheroes.
