“Blue Ivy” Strain Marijuana Sprouting Up In LA Weed Shops

Man Suing To Have Wedding Pics Redone Even Though Wife Divorced Him

It may come across as an extreme case of nuptial nostalgia: A now-divorced man saying a photography studio should pay to recreate his wedding to make up for what he considers flawed pictures and video.

But after being branded a “groomzilla,” Todd Remis said Tuesday his now-notorious lawsuit is about holding a business to a pledge, not holding onto a broken marriage.

“It was their failure to deliver after a promise and a handshake” agreement to retouch the photos, Remis said in a statement provided to The Associated Press. “How could a business treat a customer this way?” Read more…

According to the Chinese calendar, 2011 was the year of the rabbit, but from our point of view there were too many worthy animals in the news to limit the calendar to one creature. There were many high points in the animal kingdom over the past 12 months, such as an orangutan’s laudable attempt to kick burning cigarettes at a Malaysian zoo. But for every triumph, there was a setback, such as the moose — apparently drunk from eating fermented apples — that got trapped in the bough of a tree. Without further ado, here are the top animal news stories and photos from the past year.
