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.
It sounds like a good deal, but to get sour cream and guacamole for your burrito, you have to invest in a Side Order Certificate of Deposit.
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.

Does someone have an email address for that California mayor? We have a little job for him.
