Bart Simpson Faces Mr. Burns In Court!

No, we're NOT talking about The Simpsons!

In a HIGHlariously awesome coincidence, a British man named Barton "Bart" Simpson recently appeared in court, and as if the scenario was drawn up by Matt Groening himself, the judge's name was Recorder Burns!

That's right! It was a good old fashioned show down between Bart Simpson and Mr. Burns!

Ay, caramba!

Apparently, the trouble maker in question pleaded

More Women Are Trading In Yoga Mats For Guns

Filed under: ZportzYogaWellness

Women and guns

Well, not really. In fact, we're pretty sure a gun costs a lot more money than a yoga mat, but the point is more and more women are shooting a gun for fun — and to relieve stress.

The amount of female target practicers has actually doubled in last decade to nearly 5 million since 2001.

The type of women shooting guns might surprise some too! A woman named Deirdre Gailey said in a statement to reporters:

"I'm a yoga instructor, I work at a vegan bakery — and I also like to shoot guns."

Nothin' wrong with that! As long as you're not shooting guns at other people, of course.

The yoga and gun enthusiast continued to explain that "yoga's Zen-like quality can be applied to shooting guns in a lot of ways. Shooting guns takes focus, concentration, and it doesn't always have to be about violence."

It's hard to remember sometimes, thanks to all of the tragic gun violence plaguing our country's cities, but shooting IS a sport. For one mother of three living in New York City, it's also "sexy" and empowering, as she says:

"I'm very traditional feminine in certain ways. But when I'm shooting a gun, I guess I feel empowered, and empowerment is sexy…Sometimes, you kind of lose yourself in motherhood. And as much as I'm obsessed with my kids,I started to feel like my identity was subsumed into being their mom instead of being Jill. And so I needed something that was my own. And shooting is that for me."

Right on! Everyone needs their own space and, for a growing number of women, that space happens to be located inside of a shooting range.

Details About Osama Bin Laden's Death And Burial.

Filed under: Icky Icky PooPolitik

Wow. Truly such a historic day.

Now that it's been confirmed that after a nearly-ten year search, Osama bin Laden was found and killed by American troops, new details are emerging about his death.

The terrorist was located inside a large military compound in Abbottabad, an hour north of Islamabad, with no internet or phone connection. According to sources, American operatives have known about his location since last summer, and have been strategizing their plan of attack since then.

Finally, they descended upon him yesterday, and he was said to have "resisted the assault force" by using a woman as a shield against the attack and later with an automatic weapon. Special Forces Navy Seals then shot him through the head, finally killing him.

One of his sons, two couriers, and the aforementioned woman were also killed during the 40-minute raid.

In accordance with Islamic law, his body has been buried at sea.

Our thoughts are with all of the people who lost someone in the 9/11 attacks, as well as all of the innocent lives lost yesterday during the raid.

May they all rest easy knowing that bin Laden can't hurt anyone else.

Former NBA Star Arrested With Gun

Filed under: Oops!Basketball

Stromile Swift pic

Stromile Swift, the #2 NBA 2000 draft pick who never quite lived up to his hype, was arrested in Louisiana earlier in February after arriving at a woman's house with a gun in his pocket!

It sounds like Swift was in the wrong place at the wrong time too.

Police were already at Chaquinita Pouncy's home investigating a vandalism and harassment complaint she filed about Swift when the suspect in question drove up to her house.

We're not sure what he intended to do with a gun in his pocket, but luckily no shooting broke out and Swift was "compliant" with officers.

He must have had a permit for that gun he was toting around because he was only arrested on two misdemeanor charges, including suspicion of aggravated assault and improper telephone communications, but released on bail shortly after.

Although he reportedly signed a $22 million contract with the Houston Rockets in 2005, he now plays for the Shandong Lions of the Chinese Basketball Association.

We hope he learned his lesson and forgets the firearm next time he stops over to visit a lady friend!

Not cool, dude.
