Ask about our Chips and Salsa Mutual Funds: A Mexican fast-food chain in London is selling what it calls “Burrito Bonds.” Along with an 8 percent return, the bonds also pay a free burrito each week for the life of the investment.

Was it from a shih tzu? Residents of a wealthy Los Angeles suburb have asked their mayor to step down after a camera caught him throwing dog poop on the walkway of a political opponent. The mayor’s actions put the town in a bad light, residents said.

It wasn’t the political motivation that upset the residents; it was that the mayor threw poop that wasn’t from a purebred dog.
