From Consumerist: A man wants police to apologize for confusing sock full of kitty litter with meth. (I have three cats. So in my case, I’d probably be safer with the meth.)

+ A site called 2paragraphs asked experts about how some of our most famous fictional characters might have voted in the 2016 presidential election. At this point, I wouldn’t be surprised if a fictional character ran for office and won.

+ The headline says a deer was pulled from a frozen lake. The body-text says it was frozen river. Either way, it’s something nice to look at on the Internet (which is an increasingly rare opportunity.)
