Bronco, busted

We already asked: The Denver Art Museum has made good on its Super Bowl bet with the Seattle Art Museum and is preparing to send a Frederic Remington bronze of a bronco buster to Seattle.

And no, the Denver museum will not allow a Seahawks jersey to be placed on the cowboy and a Denver Bronco jersey on the horse.

Sweet! The city council in Spokane Valley has banned texting and emailing by its members during meetings to ensure the public of the transparency of its communications.

Under the new rule, council members can continue to play Candy Crush during public testimony if they mutter, “uh, huh, OK, I see,” and nod their heads.

Watch me milk this for a dog treat: Animal behaviorists insist that, despite the convincing look, dogs do not feel any shame when they lower their heads and look up at your while you’re scolding them. One expert on canines says they’ve likely learned that the look calms the angry owner, though the dogs don’t understand why.

It’s the same for men. We don’t have a clue why flowers work but have learned not to question it.
