Happy Tuesday to you all. The Super Bowl is just five days away, and the new Van Halen album is two days after that. My head's already spinning, so let's cut to the chase and get down to business. Everyone have your medium DD? Yes? What about you over there in the corner, good to go? Okay, let's clear out some Clutter.
The Apprentice returns on February 19th, and what do you know? Donald Trump just happens to be talking about running for president again. Do you remember when he said he had some guys who'd uncovered some really shocking information about President Obama's birth certificate? Whatever happened with that?
I'll do it, I swear, I'll do it. (pic via abcnews.com)
Meanwhile, Newt's got his own problems, as he's being sued by the co-author of Eye of the Tiger to to stop using the song at his rallies.
Chris Matthews to Mittens: What comes around, goes around:
David Axelrod reminded the public of one of the major differences between President Obama and Mitt Romney: One of them lets their dog travel inside the car on trips. This is a distinction that is of particular importance to BDH and his friends.
Rick Santorum will release four years of tax returns that nobody asked for.
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Kentucky) has entered Twilight Zone territory, claiming that Congress has given President Obama everything he's asked for. Perhaps three years of obstructing every Democratic proposal has left Senator McConnell suffering from exhaustion.
It's the end of an era as the main house on the Kennedy family compound is being donated to the Edward M. Kennedy Institute for public use. BDH wants to know if we'll be donating Clutter Headquarters to his institute. I told him I'd get back to him about that.
Which street drug is now being tested as a quick fix for severe depression?
A teenager who's survived cancer is now growing his hair long for other cancer survivors. His reward? To be kicked out of his school. That's clearly sending the right message. Helping others in need is nice, but you gotta keep that hair short.
It turns out there's no actual legal definition for "natural" when talking about most foods, so paying extra for "natural" Tostitos is probably a waste of money.
Las Vegas sports books are rooting really hard for a New England Patriots Super Bowl win.
New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez is willing to do whatever it takes to help the team, and he may have to step it up if Rob Gronkowski is limited on Sunday.
Everyone is talking about how much Gronk will be able to do at the Super Bowl, and how much pressure that will put on Wes Welker and Hernandez. However, former Super Bowl MVP Deion Branch says, don't forget about me.
Will Big Papi be the first Red Sox player to actually go to arbitration in ten years?
Former Red Sox pitcher/Massachusetts native Manny Delcarmen has apparently surrendered to the dark side of the force, signing a minor league deal with the New York Yankees. Our condolences to his family and friends during this challenging time.

Jenny Dell isn't the only new face coming to NESN. Former player Matt Stairs is joining the network as a studio analyst.
Will Prince Fielder's signing with the Detroit Tigers help him repair his relationship with his father, former Tigers slugger Cecil Fielder? (It's worth clicking on that link just to see the picture of a young Prince in Zubaz pants.)
I have to say I really enjoyed the Ferris Beuller's Day Off sequel, though I missed Sloan and Cameron:
Axl Rose and the current Guns 'N Roses lineup are returning to The Ritz, the site of the band's famous 1988 performance. That 1988 show was amazing to a 14 year old Clutterhead. I just wish it was the original band playing again this time.
Okay kids, that's going to do it for now. Last week, we had Zaak Wylde playing the Star Spangled Banner and suggested he should play it for the Super Bowl. We're all about choices here at Clutter, so today, we give you the option of Chickenfoot guitarist Joe Satriani's performance for today's, "Song of the Day." Check it out:
Thanks for stopping by, everyone. I hope you had as much fun as we did. Have a good day, stay warm, and come back soon for more fun and randomness. Until next time, today's Clutter has been cleared, and we're outta here.
