Nelson Mandela's memorial featured a man who translated speeches with fake sign language. It was just mortifying. Deaf people thought that Obama was describing Mandela as a man who's guilty of face masking, out at the plate, and Miley Cyrus' rehearsal partner.

President Obama was photographed flirting with Denmark's blonde prime minister during Mandela's memorial service as Michelle glared at him. It could be worse. Every day Bill Clinton thanks heaven for the fact that cellphone cameras weren't invented till after he left office.

Barack Obama shook hands with Raul Castro at Mandela's wake Tuesday. It divided Americans. Democrats considered it a polite gesture of reconciliation, while Republicans hated the sight of a foreign communist dictator shaking hands with the president of Cuba.

The New York Post caught President Obama in three photos flirting with Denmark's blonde prime minister at Mandela's memorial. All three pictures show Michelle just boiling mad. Her campaign against obesity was thwarted when her husband made a grab for the Danish.

Lingerie models strutted the runways on Victoria's Secret Christmas Fashion Show. The lingerie must comply with California state law. Victoria's Secret has a new wireless bra this season which comes with Bluetooth.

The U.S. Border Patrol reported success in stopping drug cash from going to Mexico by posting canine currency teams along all border trails. These dogs are trained to sniff out money. The U.S. government got them when Bernie Madoff had to sell everything.
