The Most Infamous National Anthem Performances Ever!
The Star Spangled Banner is considered one of the most difficult songs to perform live. Mainly due to the fact that it's acapella, and usually a huge silent crowd is hanging on your every word. It can be nerve-wracking.. but, there's no excuse to be THIS bad! Watch and listen below, to some of the worst renditions of our National Anthem in history!
And the Food Network wants to help you enjoy your dogs in style. In fact, they've come up with an inventive, gourmet "frank" for every day of the month! Crazy concoctions like the "Bruschetta Dog." [above] And the "Puppy Dogs" below. (Now that's just adorable.)
To see the rest of the hot dogs, click here! They even have an "Anthony" weiner. Alright, we made up that last one. Enjoy!
Fireworks in AZ. Are they legal or what??
I'm sure you've heard that certain fireworks have been legalized throughout the state. However, that doesn't mean they are legal to use per se! There are county bands, and usage laws that are still in effect, and could lead to fines or jail time if you're not careful! So, let's put all this confusion to rest. Here is a great article explaining the do's, dont's, and "you better nots" of fireworks in Arizona this 4th of July. Click here to read!

I would say no, but more shocking is that whomever the account belongs to keeps nearly a million dollars in a regular savings account.... that's just dumb! Click on the picture to read the story.
