Look Daddy, it's Word World.

************************************************

Reacting to a story about a supposed interview with Pippa Middleton, Barbara Walters claimed ABC doesn't pay for interviews. [Someone's trying to take from Betty White the title of Funniest Woman Over 80.]

************************************************

Today in Elvis History

1959 - Elvis Presley's sing "I Got Stung/One Night" hit #1 in the U.K. where it remained for 3 weeks.

Today in Beatles History:

1967 - John Lennon purchased an 1843 circus poster that read "For the Benefit of Mr. Kite."

More than four million people watched a cryptic 10-second teaser featuring Matthew Broderick after the clip's Thursday release, revving up the rumor mill that there may be a Ferris Bueller sequel. By mid-morning the true point of the clip was revealed: Matthew Broderick's Bueller would be selling a Honda. On Monday Honda gave us a taste of its upcoming weekend ad magic, one that will cost around $3.5 million for a mere 30 seconds of airtime. Which is probably why they put the 2 minute, 25 second video on YouTube.
