When life gets you down, the news and internet are scary and full of crazy guys eating peoples faces, its strange that you can turn to the animal kingdom for some heart warming fuzzies.
This clip below of interspecies animal friendships has saved my day. Thank You Huffington Post.
Which is your favorite pair? I loved the puppy riding on top of the turtle, I might get a tattoo of that. Comment below!
Critics say this cutie is too pudgy - what do you think? Baby Max is about 6 weeks old.
Mom is now being paid $4 million to lose her baby weight from Weight Watchers. See how Jess plans to drop the pounds here.
As a new'ish mom, can I say any woman who looks this good after 6 weeks is doing amazing. Granted, she has help but I remember that 6 weeks and I am certian I looked like a cross between a yeti and the unabomber in yoga pants.
I am still having issues sticking to a workout plan 2 years later! So excuse me while I'll squeeze myself into this cheerleading outfit and say - Go, Jessica, Go!
Kathie Lee was interviewing Martin Short this morning and brought up his wife and how great their marriage "is." Unfortunately Martin's wife passed away 2 years ago from Ovarian Cancer. See the clip here:
It's ALWAYS important to prepare for your interviews so you don't end up in that situation. Candy and I have definitely entered interviews not being prepared enough - Fortunately we haven't ended up in a situation like Kathie Lee did. Everyone can criticize her all they want, but I bet none of it hurts as much as her own guilt over it!
Mitt Romney's campaign released an iPhone App that will add Pro-Romney captions to your photos. The problem is someone forgot to spell-check it. Oops!
Odds are Mitt has no problem spelling America, and whoever messed it up made an honest mistake (as we all do). However during election season when EVERYTHING is scrutinized, it's a pretty funny mistake. :)
About taking risks, "That's what I do, even after all these years. I try to find another avenue. I'm from Alabama and it was time for me to go back and discover my country roots." the music icon recently told Huffington Post.
Check out the video of Lionel and Billy Currington singing "Just For You"
Have you heard the album? Do you love it? Have you ever danced on the ceiling!? Comment below!
If you're someone who thinks recycling is a pain, perhaps you need to do it with more style!
This guy Christian Delpech is a bartender who practices "Flair Bartending," similar to what Tom Cruise did in the movie "Cocktail." In the video below though, he takes those skills and does what he calls, "Recycling With Style." Love it!
Lady Antebellum was playing a show in Augusta, GA when their band got a LOT bigger. Lady A's crew surprised them on stage with a local high school marching band playing "We Own The Night." It also happened to be the school that Charles and Dave from Lady A went to school!
Carrie Underwood was this week's guest for Candy+Potter's Superstar Thursday. Can you believe that anyone in their right mind could have cheated on Carrie? Crazier things may have happened but none come to mind. Idiot.
This is an amazing piece of editing. Its a commercial for Getty Images an online resource for royalty free images, video, and audio. But its just so so cool that I had to share it. There are 15 images per second. Try pausing the video its supercool.
A La Crosse man stole a video camera and decided to record himself taunting police by saying how stupid cops are and how they’ll never figure it out who I am - then adds: "Oh yeah, to introduce you, my name is Houaka Yang. So yeah, how do you do."
He posted it on youtube. Now the idiot is in jail.
He stole the camera from a car in the driveway of Republican state Senate candidate Bill Feehan.
Megan called Candy + Potter with an interesting dilemma. She is 8 months pregnant but the baby's father is now an ex. He wants to be in the birthing suite - She doesn't want him there. As the father, does he have the right to be there?
Listen to the rest of Megan's story and hear what listeners had to say...
A 16-year-old student at St. Paul’s Como Park High School brought cupcakes to his classmates last week. Nice gesture, right? Well, it’s not so nice when you fill one of the cupcakes with…let's just say DNA and the give it to an unsuspecting classmate. Unfortunately, the guy ate it and has been harassed ever since.
Here's the worst part, police say they haven't charged the "baker" with anything. What!? That's assault at least!
And what really gets me mad is that a really intelligent school official says, it was a case of "boys being boys".
OK, I don't know how many times I have to say this but - "BOYS BEING BOYS" is NOT A THING. As a mother of a boy, this phrase will never be said in my house. How about - "IDIOTS WILL BE IDIOTS"?
Best friends and alphabetical order buddies Ian and John pull a pretty classic yearbook prank.
When I was a senior in high school (like forever ago) I snuck my way into as many club pictures as I could get away with Latin Club, Spanish Club, Math Club, Debate Club, and so, and so on until they kicked me out of the gym. Boy I am hilarious.
A Superior, WI woman caused a traffic jam last week when she piled all of her ex-husbands belongings onto her front lawn along with signs readiing "X-HUSBAND SALE" and "FREE", but what really stopped traffic has the man's once green GMC Yukon SUV now sporting flat tires and spray painted with the word "CHEATER" and other way more obcene phrases.
The vandalized vehicle was eventually towed to return traffic to its normal flow, even though there's no law against spray painting a vehicle in one's own yard according to Superior Police Sgt. William Lear "If its a running vehicle and someone wants to paint their own car, they can. "
Have you ever diposed of an ex's property in a dramatic fashion? I personally have a pile of my ex-gilfriend's crap gathering mold in my basement, and I feel like I should have put it on the curb like a year ago. What do you think? Comments below. . .
I'm Reba! by Producer Ryan,posted May 19 2012 9:00AM
I personally loved Reba McEntire's last show Reba, and I'm excited to see her new show Malibu Country
Also this SNL Digital Short from The Lonely Island was a favorite of mine. It's slightly risque, as you would expect from The Digital Shorts but Kenan Thompson as Reba is too funny.
A Wisconsin man called police after one of his favorite restaurants refused to keep feeding him, even though it was "All You Can Eat." You can see the story here from WTMJ-TV:
I'm TOTALLY on his side. I'm not proud of it, but growing up my mentality with "All-You-Can-Eat" was that I wanted to be the customer that the company lost money on. We didn't have much money growing up, so I always wanted to at least get my money's worth.
The All-You-Can-Eat business model works because you make LOTS of money on a few people and SOME money on most people. It also includes the fact that you're going to lose money on a few customers.
I don't go in and try and "get my money's worth" anymore - I try and stop eating when I'm full. But in general if you're going to advertise it's "All You Can Eat," then it should be. Even if you have to add and asterisk that says "*within one hour" or something like that.
Martina and her husband John are celebrating their 24th Anniversary this week - Pretty great for a celebrity marriage! Candy + Potter recently talked to Martina about how she would celebrate her 24th and 25th Anniversaries. Hear it here:

Emily, a single mom, kicked off her search for TV love last night on the Bachelorette. Should you hate on her? No, and here are 3 reasons why should should skip the heaping glass of Hateorade.
1. The EGG guy. Come on really? Dude presented her with an egg and said he was going to carry it during the whole show. What a skeeze ball. Althought, I guess the whole egg thing is better than saying what he really wanted to say. "Hi, I want to wear your skin as a swimsuit."
2. The guys who toss their kids at her. "I have a kid too!" That is a creepy reason to date anyone.
3. Everyone who keeps saying "3rd times a charm!" - They keep talking about the fact Emily has had 2 failed engagments so far. Come on, do you think she really needs to hear that all the time?
Kenny Chesney, Lady Antebellum, Little Big Town, Brad Paisley, Carrie Underwood and Zac Brown Band are scheduled to perform at the 2012 CMT Music Awards. You'll see the show, June 6th - 8pm on CMT. I'm sure Carrie will have at least 7 dresses during the show.

Gwen Sebastian from Team Shelton has been keeping us updated on all things The Voice.
She talks to Candy+Potter about her new single "Met Him In A Hotel Room" available on iTunes
and upcoming tour dates which should have her swinging through Wisconsin. Hear the interview here:
I've heard of crying to get out of a ticket, but have you ever thought of pleading your case through song. This guy is singing his whiskey soaked heart out! Also this video is good if you've been missing your school days where drunk
renditions of Bohemian Rhapsody were the standard end of any good party.
It looks like we are one step closer to my vision of a world ruled by intellegent elephants. . .
or as I like to call it Planet of the Elephants!
One amazing elephant at The National Zoo loves to play music, harmonica in particular.
Shanthi the elephant is "musically inclined" according to Elephant Keeper Debbie Flinkman and The Associated Press.
She writes all her own music and plays even when no one is around.
I think we need some drums, maybe a banjo and a fiddle and a singer with a voice of gold and a love of elephants.
Who's with me? Could it be the greatest band ever!? What do you think? Any ideas for band names?
Glamor magazine put together a NEW list of 30 things we should know before we're 30 and 30 things we should have. I have to say, Glamor did a decent job of updating this ongoing list. The big one - I think we should know by 30 if we want kids or not so we can start planning. And if we don't want them and you DO...then there's another issue.
Here are some of the highlights. See the full list here.
By 30, you should have:
Something perfect to wear if the employer or man of your dreams wants to see you in an hour. - OR - I dress you don't hate.
A past juicy enough that you’re looking forward to retelling it in your old age. - BINGO
One friend who always makes you laugh and one who lets you cry.
By 30 we should know:
How you feel about having kids. - CHECK
How to quit a job, break up with a man, and confront a friend with-out ruining the friendship. - CHECK
Men carry a lot of stuff these days, phones , tablets, documents, snacks, fire starting implements,
first aid equipment, bottles of 5 hour energy.
Our Dads and Grandads could carry briefcases and wear fedoras. Even Batman has his utility belt.
Man has spent decades trying to find socially acceptable means of carrying essential equipment
from backpacks to fanny packs to the much maligned european men's carry-all.
I myself carry a laptop case that has no computer in it, instead its full of papers, pens, markers, gum,
snack food crumbs and a book to read on the bus (its Game of Thrones right now), and I hold my head high.
I say if its good enough for Indiana Jones, its good enough for me.
So I ask, can a Man Purse be Manly?
Or should a man be able to fit all he needs into his jean pockets and the folds of his wallet?
