Pardon me, do you have any Grey Poupon? New data from the IRS shows the dividing line between the much-talked-about 1 percent and the 99 percent. It’s less than you might think, but still a healthy $343,927 a year.

So we know who’s who: Those making less than that, grab a sign and find a demonstration. Those making more than that, please breathe on your monocle, wipe it off, and instruct Higgins to release the hounds.

Go as Donny Osmond: A Mormon church in Salt Lake City has posted fliers for an upcoming Halloween party asking girls and boys not to dress in “cross-gender” costumes, such as girls wearing Harry Potter outfits or boys dressing as Lady Liberty.

Disappointed, GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney, R-Safety School, put away the Michele Bachmann outfit that he’s already worn to several tea party rallies.

Ya sure: The Stanwood Lions Club is offering its 59th annual Lutefisk Dinner from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday at Stanwood High School. Lutefisk, for those without Scandinavian grandmothers, is cod preserved in lye, then cooked to the consistency of Jell-O.

The dinner is all you eat, but then any amount of lutefisk is all you can eat.
