Headlines Du Jour ► Saturday, January 18, 2014

In yesterday's exciting episode of Headlines Du Jour, I lamented that my headline-collecting robot drones had not shown up. Now I know why. They've become supreme overlord to your home appliances. The first two headlines describe the latest adventures of my former-headline-collecting robot drones. In the meantime, I'm taking applications for interns all over again.
