Trademark infringement?

San Antonio challenged our fitness,
In Cleveland, to Rise-up® and Witness® ;
But expecting LeBron
To take it all on
Is a failure to Take Care of Bitness®!

Cavs bow out but expectations rise up

Paradise lost; regained; lost?

That Paris returned to her Hilton
May not merit an epic by Milton,
But limericks are easy;
And justice, this cheesy,
Rates a stink even worse than a Stilton!

It's sprung time for Hilton
After her early exit from jail,
an angry judge calls her back to court today.

Pride goeth before the G-8

Does Bush even reckon how dumb it
Is to bluster while he's at the Summit?
Does he think they'll applaud
His image abroad,
Or his ratings at home still can't plummet?

Rifts on Russia and Climate Seen at Summit

I read the news today; oh boy!

I remember the times seemed so rife
With famine, with war, and with strife.
Then that mind-blowing day
Pepper taught us to play…
Yet, today, it's a day in the life.
