Are you a fan of the epic food magazine? Conde Nast reported losses in the company and announced that it’s closing Gourmet, Cookie, Modern Bride and Elegant Bride magazines. Foodies everywhere were shocked and dismayed, especially on Twitter – where Gourmet editor-in-chief Ruth Riechl herself even tweeted, “We’re all stunned, sad.”

2. President Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize.

The internet is in a flurry over deciding whether or not he deserves it – the supporters are filled with pride and the nay-sayers think he really hasn’t done enough in office (or even had the time to do enough) – to get the prize. What do you think?

3. …And then we bombed the moon.

4. Marge Simpson is going to be on the cover of Playboy.

Cute, funny…or just plain creepy? TV’s favorite cartoon mom will be gracing the nudie mag’s November issue cover, and will even have a “sexy” spread of pictures inside. We’re sure Simpsons fans will rejoice, but it sort of freaks us out.

5. And finally, a site with tons of hairstyles.

We know how much our readers love hair stories — but this site won’t show you how to get gorgeous styles. But just for laughs, you need to head over to to check out the craziest, most hilarious do’s you’ve ever seen — faux-hawks, mohawks, mullets — and even something called “The Hermit Crab.”
