Not in Oprah's Book Club
Tony Blair published his memoir, a 700 page volume entitled 'Journey' that reveals fascinating behind-the-scenes details on the thought process that went on behind his sometimes controversial decisions during his long tenure as Britain's Prime Minister from 1994 to 2007. Readers interested in the American perspective on that historical period can look forward to the release next week of former U.S. President George W. Bush's own memoir, a 7 page volume entitled 'Curious George.'

The US Food and Drug Administration announced that fish and shellfish harvested from the Gulf Coast are perfectly safe to eat despite being exposed to toxic chemicals because of the disastrous BP oil spill in the region. To boost the FDA statement that nothing bad could happen to you by eating Gulf Coast seafood, President Obama and his wife made a very public outing to New Orleans' Red Lobster restaurant where they proceeded to consume a vast array of local fare. When their waiter was late in fetching their dessert however, Obama snapped his head off with one of his tentacles and Michelle ate him.

Special arrangements were made for cheerleaders to dress more modestly during the US-Iran basketball game at the FIBA World Championships in Istanbul, after Iranian officials sitting in the audience reportedly stood up and turned their back on the female dancers during previous matches. FIBA Secretary-General Patrick Baumann defended his decision as being one that was meant to respect "cultural sensitivities" and even added that further changes would be made next year when Mahmoud Ahmadinejad becomes the squad's choreographer-in-chief.
Sgt. Pepper's Loo
A UK auction house made over 14,000 dollars by selling a toilet that once belonged to John Lennon. Inspired by this feat, Russian President Dmitry Medyedev announced that he would soon be holding a Kremlin garage sale to try to sell off a bidet that once belonged to Vlad Lenin.
