  • Auckland University students are being given the chance to make $5000 — if they successful make a citizen’s arrest of United States Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, Scoop reports. I wonder how likely it is a student will actually get past Rice’s security?
  • 50 cent is suing Taco Bell for “diluting the value of his good name,” ABC News reports. What good name? Oooh, you must mean this good name.
  • The international market for turtles is growing and two poachers were arrested recently, the Des Moines Register reports. Apparently, turtles make for good eatin’, as the Register includes a recipe to cook turtle meat– yuum.
  • Complaining bloggers and twitterers are getting heard by Comcast, The New York Times reports. But, they really didn’t want Comcast to respond anyways — can anyone say Big Brother?
