Today’s Q&A

Ikea says super-energy-efficient LED lighting will be the only lighting it sells by 2016.

The company notes that LED lights can last for 20 years — which brings The Buzz to Today’s Question No. 1:

Q: What also takes 20 years?

A: Finding the exit at an Ikea store.

(Please note, “Assembling Ikea’s Pax Uggdal closet system” also is correct.)

Where’d Mom go? In other Ikea news, the Swedish company apologized for bowing to ultraconservative sensibilities and airbrushing women out of its catalog distributed in Saudi Arabia.

Which brings The Buzz to Today’s Question No. 2:

Q: What do you call an Ikea catalog that excludes women?

A: A Cabela’s catalog.

Sizzling-hot news: Bacon lovers can stand down from Def Con 4. The alleged coming bacon shortage that lit up Twitter last week turns out to have been, ahem, hogwash.

You guessed it: This brings The Buzz to Today’s Question No. 3:

Q: What do you call a nation without bacon?

A: Saudi Arabia.
