It’s not a Super Bowl ring, but it’ll do: A Federal Way Chevrolet dealer says he’ll make good on his promise to enter 32 customers in a raffle for a dozen $35,000 prizes, payable if the Seattle Seahawks shut out the New York Giants in Sunday’s game. Seattle won 23-0.
Giants quarterback Eli Manning and his offensive line said they are keeping their fingers crossed.
Santa’s wingman: A children’s advocacy group says it disapproves of a NORAD video that shows Santa’s sleigh being escorted by fighter jets, saying it injects militarism into Christmas.
But it’s a necessary precaution. Rudolph’s nose is great in the fog but offers no protection over North Korean or Syrian air space.
Chairman Meow: The bones of wild cats in an ancient Chinese village appear to support the theory of how cats were domesticated. The cats hunted rodents that were eating grain stores built 5,000 years ago. Over time, the cats adapted to village life and were tamed by humans.
Still unexplained is how cats then tamed and trained humans to clean their litter boxes, open their cans of cat food and purchase $2,000 scratching posts in the shape of couches.
