10 ) The Congressional “super committee” proves not so super, and dissolves without ever ironing out a deficit reduction deal. But hey, they’ve given the Big Two Parties plenty of finger-pointing material. That’s worth something, right?
9 ) Deval Patrick signs casino bill into law, and less than six hours later a casino developer files a lawsuit claiming the law unlawfully favors the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe. Vegas is giving five-to-three odds that the lawsuit fails at the state supreme court level.
8 ) “The Muppets” opens to universal praise from critics, scoring a rare 100 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. Screw you, CGI! Felt puppets RULE!
7 ) The Alliance to Protect Nantucket Sound crows about an increase in fundraising in 2010, which was on-par with its second-worst year of fundraising ever, and that’s still not enough to dig the wind farm opposition group out of a $1.34 million deficit.

2 ) A Maryland company launches “Chick Beer,” a beer marketed exclusively to women, complete with pink packaging. No! Women can’t like beer! Just like they can’t enjoy sports, action movies, or video games! Dammit, women, why must you like guy stuff?! Now get in the kitchen and make me a sammich!
1 ) Even though Justin Bieber’s accuser has been outed as a fraud, Bieber apparently decides to really put the screws to her and submit to a DNA test to prove once and for all he did not father her kid. Damn, who knew babyface Bieber had a vindictive streak?
