If you've followed these pages, you're undoubtedly been prompted by deep personal questions such as: is 42 really the meaning of life, how can something so small like Hamburger Helper bring so much joy to the world?

You also know that we've brought up the topic of a Bengals fan selling his allegiance to the highest bidder in an effort to ditch his Bengals fandom for a team that wins, considering Lions and Bills fans also need not apply because "you have also proven you could care less about winning."

The fan, also known as He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named, is now going to be a Pittsburgh Steeler fan, selling his allegiance and dignity for $510. It was originally up to $610 by the Baltimore Ravens, but apparently they weren't serious and it upset He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named. Image that. Ravens fans mocking a former Bengals fan about to be a Steelers fan. It's like they have no class. No class at all.

The auction ended on January 17, just in time for He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named to cheer on his new favorite team during this weekend's AFC Championship game. And we're not sure what will happen if the New York Jets win on Sunday.

LAURENCE MARONEY ARRESTED. Denver Broncos running back Laurence Maroney was one of several men pulled over Monday night and arrested with unlawful weapons and drug charges. According to Mile High Report,

Maroney was arrested for possession of marijuana and unlawful use of a weapon. Cops say while Maroney has a valid "Conceal and Carry" permit -- he was arrested for packing the gun while under the influence of drugs.

Obviously. Because only a sane man would save flood victims by throwing his head down from the 'chopper yelling, "grab the rope."
