These "CSI"-inspired pillows will, no doubt, make Grisham proud—they're using crime scene evidence (splattered blood, DNA and fingerprints) as decor!

Friday Quickies!

We thought Pilot Inspektor was a bad baby name. Parents in Venezuela are fond of naming their tots after superheros like Batman and Superman.
