Puppy Claims Kitchen Sink in 12-Hour Standoff
While details are still sketchy at this time, The Fluffington Post has received numerous reports that a puppy named Tucker has taken control of the kitchen sink, and remains locked in a standoff with authorities.
“We’ve been negotiating with him for the last 12 hours,” says Mark Hollis, an officer on the scene. “It’s not clear what he wants. Treats? Walkies? Whatever it is, he’s not coming out without a fight, that’s for sure.”

CNN Unveils All-Kitten Election Night Team
For the past few presidential elections, 24-hour news network CNN has been known for its Election Night technology. In 2008 the network debuted a studio filled with giant touch screens and contributors beamed in via hologram.
For 2012, CNN is pulling out all the stops. At a press event this morning in the company’s headquarters Atlanta, GA, the network unveiled its Election Night news team.
Gone are mainstays Wolf Blitzer, John King, Candy Crowley and Anderson Cooper — instead, CNN’s 18-straight hours of November 6 news coverage will be anchored by a team of kittens.
“Some might think it an extremely risky move to rely on a group of rookies for such a huge live news event,” said media gazer Ron Calumet, “but I think this is smart for CNN. They need something to energize ratings and kittens are really, really popular.”
