The Vermont Teddy Bear Company makes all sorts of seasonal pitches for you to get a special teddy bear for the one you love.
They're especially popular around Valentine's Day. (Heads up, guys, it's about two weeks away!).
This year, the folks at VTBC are really putting some sizzle in the game, with the new Fifty Shades of Grey Bear.
No, really. It looks like it's an official tie-in with Fifty Shades of Grey - maybe you've heard that the movie is coming out on Valentine's Day? (Heads up, guys, it's about two weeks away!)
Check out . The ad copy is pretty good: the web page "He features smoldering gray eyes, a suit and silk tie, mask – even mini handcuffs."
And in case you're wondering, no, it's not suitable for children, because it has small parts.
Says it right at the bottom of the page.
Cuz nothin' says "I love you!" more than the Bondage Bear!
Last weekend, a group of Republicans descended on Iowa for a Freedom Summit.
It was an opportunity for some of the folks who would love to run the good ol' USA to strut their stuff in front of some folks who might like to see one of them run the good ol' USA.
And a wonderful opportunity for Jon Stewart and to provide deep comic analysis of the event. The Daily Show
Mike Huckabee was there. So was Ted Cruz. And Rick Perry, and Donald Trump too.
And the cream on the Freedom Cupcake - former vice-presidential candidate, former Alaskan governor, Sarah Palin.
Who somehow, at the end of Jon's analysis, morphed into Matthew McConaughey. And I did not see that coming...
While a near-record snowfall covered the City of Boston, one man tried to stay ahead of the white stuff.
Chris Laudani, a bartender, finished his shift early on Tuesday night, grabbed a shovel and headed for Boylston Street and the finish line of the Boston Marathon.
On his own, he cleared the finish line - site of the horrific bombings - of snow.
He wasn't looking for anything.
"I only did it to send a message," he later told Boston Magazine after his identity was determined. I love the Boston Marathon and everything it stands for, the finish line doesn't deserve to be covered in snow."
Lots of people want to know what the weather will be like in Glendale, Arizona for the Super Bowl this Sunday.
Well just ask the folks at Fox 10 in Phoenix.
Because it is HOT!
Earlier this week, meteorologist Cory McCloskey was in the middle of a forecast when his current temperature board went a little nutty.
1270 degrees in Ahwatukee. 1350 in Surprise. All the way up to 2385 in Wickenburg.
Lesser men would have melted. Not Cory - he handled it superbly, rolling with the numbers, and delivering up some stellar improv.

Amanda Peet visited the other night to talk about her role on the new HBO series, Conan . Togetherness
While she was there, she chatted a little about another HBO series, one that was co-created by her husband: . Game of Thrones
And what she said almost got her booed off the show.
Must have been some severe Throniacs in the audience.
She admitted that when her husband first told her about the idea, she said it sounded terrible.
"Like Dungeons & Dragons, but real, with real people," is how she described it.
Now, she's a fan... And not just because it's made her hubby a castleful of cash either.
Cupid's well-known for his archery skills.
But after watching this video, I'll bet Cupid puts in for retirement.
Denmark's Lars Anderson has spent his life studying and perfecting the art of archery, and has been clocked shooting three arrows - accurately too - in 1.52 seconds.
That's faster than you can read the phrase "1.52 seconds."
Watch what this guy can do - it really is amazing.
Then send a nice Hallmark card to Cupid to cheer him up...
The folks at Go Daddy, keepers of so many web domains, usually produce an ad for the Super Bowl.
Sometimes sultry, sometimes sexy, they usually cause a bit of a stir.
This year, they decided to go with something a little more tame, sort of spoofing Budweiser's commercial last year about the lost dog.
This new Go Daddy ad featured Buddy, a golden retriever puppy who finds his way home, only to find that his owner has just sold him on a website she built with Go Daddy's help. Buddy's owner, as it turns out, is a breeder from Gabby's Goldens. At the end of the ad, Buddy's loaded into a van and driven off.
When the ad was released on Tuesday, animal rights activists were up in arms, and demanded that the ad - which they suggest was glorifying puppy mills - be pulled.
And the folks at Go Daddy agreed. Here's the ad you won't see on Sunday.
What do you think? Go Daddy? Or No Daddy?
T-Mobile unveile its Super Bowl commercial early - seriously, who isn't?
This one features a new plan to save your data - the unused data in the data plans that are part of everyone's cell phone bills.
Usually, if you don't use it, you lose it and start with a fresh slate next month.
And who better to talk about the best ways to use your data the the Kween of Social Media herself, Kim Kardashian.
I have to tell the truth here - this one is pretty funny. Check it out.
If it's on the internet, it's got to be true, right?
A strange snow creature was pictured wandering the streets in and around Boston during Blizzard Juno.
Sasquatch? Yeti? Bigfoot? Abominable snowman?
He's calling himself the Boston Yeti, and he's got a Twitter account and he's the latest storm-related viral sensation.
Nothing to worry about. Some local news outlets are saying it's probably a guy in a costume.
Whew! That was close!
Marshawn Lynch, running back for the Seattle Seahawks, is notorious for avoiding the press and press conferences.
But put a bowlful of Skittles candies in front of him, he's a veritable talking machine.
It looks like a long-form commercial on the Skittlesbrand YouTube page - no word on whether it will be condensed to a more broadcast-friendly length.
Until then, Marshawn wants to thank Skittles - after fielding a bunch of interesting questions - "for making the game day more awesomer."
