  • From Nanny to Senator? Actress Fran Drescher–famous for her unmistakable hyena laugh and role on The Nanny–announced via her publicist that she is looking to fill Hillary Clinton’s seat in the US Senate. (Insert laugh track here.)
  • You’ve got mail: Governors in at least six states were sent suspsicious packages containing a mysterious white substance, and it sure wasn’t disco dust. So far, no injuries were reported.
