Tea Cups Pigs The Latest Crazy Craze

tYes, it's hard to believe, but Tea Cups Pigs are the latest crazy craze that is sweeping the world. These animals are the size of a tea cup and are not cheap to buy, but that has not slowed the popularity of these things down. When fully grown they will only weigh between 30-60 lbs which is not bad. They also have a life expectancy of 20 years so they do live awhile. When born they are the size of a tea cup and that is where the name comes from.

They also can be litter trained very easily as well. You will probably see these more often as stars and others start breeding them. The bad part is these little things will be bred to death and health problems could come of it. They are cute I will have to admit that. I do not think I ever want them as a pet though, but you never know as more and more people buy them they become more mainstream.

George Michael Continues Downward Spiral

George Michael continues his downward spiral as he was arrested after a crashing a car into a building. The 47-year-old, who was banned for driving for two years in June 2007, was reported to have crashed into a branch of a photography shop near his home in the leafy north London suburb of Hampstead on Sunday.

In 2006, Michael was found slumped over the wheel of his car and in June 2007 was given a two-year driving ban after pleading guilty to driving while unfit. He claimed he was tired and had been taking prescription drugs. It's a shame that Michael does not get it together. He was a talent and it seems that he continues to spiral out of control. Hopefully, he will figure it out soon, but I seriously doubt it.

Pawn Stars Something Everyone Should See

The History Channel every now and then surprises me with some of their programming. Pawn Stars is one of those shows that have been proven to be worth watching. The show profiles Rick Harrison; his father, The Old Man; and his son, Corey, as cameras follow them around their Gold And Silver Pawn Shop in Las Vegas. Some humor is thrown in with the help of Chumlee, Corey's best friend who helps manage the increasingly popular pawn shop.

What makes this show stand out from the crowd is the lessons it teaches. People will bring in things to sell and usually the viewer will get an interesting history lesson in the process. On pawn stars they try to get it for a low price so they can resell it for profit. It's how they use to do it many years ago. On Pawn Stars you will see many items that you probably will never see anywhere else. It's on Monday Nights at 10PM on the History Channel. Check it out it is enjoyable television for a change.
