Whether you're choking on your Dollar-Menu McNuggets -- or your neighbor is gagging on what Michele Bachmann said on FOX News today -- a restaurant-quality choking poster can come in super-handy!
As Celinda Lake of Lake Research Partners explains, "Women candidates pay a real price when they are covered in a way that focuses on their appearance."

Extraterrestrial Culture Day is coming up next week, so we figured it would be a fitting time to hold up our Romper Room mirror and find what Michele Bachmann has been up to.
We learned this week that the Office of Management and Budget -- the largest office in the Executive Office of the President of the United States -- decided to make itself useful in eliminating government waste. And so it issued its Report on Useless Reports!

We're surprised it hasn't occurred to them that they could make a lot more money just eliminating the yellow all together. Entering an intersection could be a lot like playing Russian roulette!
