Kris Jenner says her daughter Kendall was not bullied at a recent fashion show, saying the rumors are “150% not true.” The question is, what is 150% not true? Is it 100% a lie but then comes back for the other 50% to be factual?

That’s it for now, Oh Faithful Readers! How about that Secret Service? It’s a good thing President Obama takes so many vacations and is never there for anyone to actually be able to get in and do him any harm. Apparently the reason the agents are always wearing sunglasses is because they are all blind. Even Congress is asking why they weren’t on the job when they were supposed to be. Although in all honesty I think they are doing a great job. At least with supplying material for jokes. One bit of advice for the President next time he goes out with a Secret Service detail. Bulletproof everything. Lots of jokes today. Don’t know what got into me. Maybe it’s just a result of all of you remembering to keep sending the love!
