To deal with all those Tivo and DVR users who fast forward through commercials, KFC has made an ad with a secret message that is "encoded such that it is only visible while the commercial is being
fast-forwarded watched in slow motion." KFC is also "offering a free sandwich to those who can regurgitate the hidden phrase." Of course you also will likely regurgitate the free sandwich too, but it’s still a good idea.

The great Field Maloney has come to the rescue of Bob Marley‘s reputation. He feels that his "musical legacy has been hijacked and simplified by his cheesier [whiter] fans" and that the greatest hits collection Legend was "a defanged and overproduced selection of Marley’s music." So all of you millions of people who have enjoyed that album over the years, you should be ashamed of yourselves. You should also immediately run right out and get the three albums from Marley’s Fieldian "Golden Age," then throw away Legend! Thank you, Field Maloney, for telling us how stupid we are compared to you.
