Facebook struggled in 2012 and began to develop its own "Farmville"-type games. Its most successful game to date is “Let’s see who has gotten fat since high school.”

Kim Jung Un burnished his evil dictator credentials by pretending to launch a fake intercontinental ballistic missile on the one-year anniversary of his father's death. If bumbling North Korea does decide to develop a nuke or ICBM, just give it time and the problem will resolve itself Road Runner style.

We hear that government sources do not consider "Glorious Leader" Kim Jong Il dead. The official North Korean press says the elder Kim entered a sleeping contest and is clearly still winning. His son was catapulted to officer status this year and attained the North Korean Army's highest rank: five feet and two inches tall.

Romney was crushed by the women's vote. He proudly admitted in a debate that he kept a binder of women for job on his staff. Women like nothing better than to be alphabetized.

General David Petraeus invited all his generals to a farewell barbecue dinner at his house. He asked them to bring their favorite side dish, and they all brought their biographers.
