Make it stop

It won’t go away! Disney is creating a global sing-along website for “it’s a small world,” marking the ditty’s 50th glorious year of entrancing small children and driving parents insane.

The website invites people to submit videos of themselves singing the song. The “best” versions will be played on a continuous loop at secret CIA prisons in Eastern Europe.

Spark up before the Ciscoe Morris talk: CannaCon, a marijuana industry convention and trade show scheduled for August in Tacoma, will be much closer to a traditional home and garden show than Hempfest, organizers say. No smoking will be allowed.

It should be noted, however, that a judicious application of cannabis can be a godsend for husbands compelled to accompany their wives to traditional flower and garden shows.

World’s greatest bosses: The CEOs of Washington state-based corporations Costco and Amazon.com came in fifth and 32nd place, respectively, in a ranking of the 50 most popular CEOs of large U.S. companies, according to Glassdoor, a career website.

Actually, it was pretty easy to rank the top 50 CEOs. Anyone who hasn’t collected gargantuan bonuses while eliminating thousands of jobs and running their companies into the ground made the list.
