Quickies!: Potentially Offensive Cartoon, Snuggie Pub Crawl, & Conan Says Bye To NYC

  • In yesterday’s New York Post, there was a cartoon suggesting that the stimulus bill was so bad that a monkey might as well have written it. However, it can be construed that the monkey is President Obama, and many are taking offense. What do YOU think? [Huffington Post]
  • The cartoon didn’t slow down The First Lady. Michelle Obama continues to shine as she hosted a Black History Month celebration at the White House yesterday for sixth and seventh graders. [Bossip]
  • Giorgio Armani is best known for his fashion line. But he’s trying to be noticed for his cooking abilities as well. The designer just opened a new Italian restaurant in NYC. [AOL]
  • Scared to travel for fear you might lose your job? Jet Blue says worry no more! The airline is offering a promise that if you lose your job, they will refund your fare and waive the cancellation fee. Getting pink-slipped has some advantages. [Gadling]
  • The warm and fuzzie Snuggie, the blanket with sleeves, is offering a pub crawl. An evening drinking with random people cuddled up under the Snuggie. Sign me up! [Gothamist]
  • A woman turned a beauty supply store into her own personal drive-thru when she ran her car through the front. What happened to parking like a normal person? She must have really been in a rush for those tweezers. [TruTv]
  • Conan O Brien bids farewell to New York City tonight. He filmed the last episode of his 16-year run last night so he can assume his new role as host of “The Tonight Show” in Los Angeles. [Asylum]
