Fish story

A 593-pound bluefin tuna sold for $736,000 at a Tokyo fish market Thursday.

The prized fish was thought to be destined for Tokyo’s swankest sushi parlors, but then it was revealed that the buyer was poor little rich boy Ri¢hie Ri¢h, who really loves tuna fish sandwiches.

A little extra in the pay envelope: The Obama administration’s 2013 budget would give federal workers an 0.5 percent pay raise.

If the pay hike goes into effect, the president is expected to add a signing statement cautioning workers, “Now don’t go and spend it all in one place.”

The nose knows: The U.S. Supreme Court will decide whether a Florida police dog’s sniff outside the front door of a house with a marijuana growing operation was an unconstitutional intrusion into the home.

Mr. Justice Buzz rules for the cops on this one. Because if the lower court’s ruling stands, we’ll have to remember to yell “mind your own business” at every dog that passes by.
