Red-faced

Forced to punt: The U.S. Patent Office has revoked the trademark of the NFL's Washington Redskins because the nickname is “disparaging to Native Americans.” Patent law prohibits names that are disparaging, scandalous, contemptuous or disreputable.

So much for our suggestions for new names: the Washington Lobbyists, the D.C. Do-Nothings, or the Washington SuperPACs.



Have a Coke and a warning: Lawmakers in California have rejected a bill that would have put a label on sugary drinks that warned: “Drinking beverages with added sugar contributes to obesity, diabetes and tooth decay."

We're guessing some of the lawmakers thought the labels were too judgmental and were looking for something along the lines of “Hey! How about a glass of water and some celery sticks. That sounds pretty refreshing, doesn't it?”



Rent's cheap: A creationist museum has opened in Boise, Idaho, to “show a lot of science that's being censored,” said the museum's director.

In order to display all the science related to creationism, the museum is housed in an old phone booth. There's room for expansion.
