"How about that presidential race? Hillary Clinton just won't quit. Can you believe that, ladies and gentlemen? You have to admire somebody who, against all odds, just won't quit. I mean, right now she has absolutely no chance whatsoever of being president, but she just won't quit. And they're running out of money. Hillary Clinton, God bless her, is running out of money.

Odd News


An obese Rhesus monkey is seen at Ohama park in Sakai, near Osaka, May 11, 2008. Since June 2007, the park has cut down on the amount of food being fed to the monkeys from 10 kg (22 lbs) per day to 2 kg (4.4 lbs) because the monkeys have become overweight. The park is also planning to build a fence to prevent visitors from throwing food to the monkeys, a park office worker said.
