“Dog Stylist” Dara Foster (“I show people how to live together with their dogs in a stylish way”) told a TV audience recently that some dog owners are dressing their pooches in “’80s-inspired punk, giving way to a grunge movement in dog fashion — I swear to God.”
The ubiquitous TV guest and apparel designer estimates that since Americans already spend $47 billion a year on pets, they need more than ever to know what’s hot — fluorescent styling gel, for example, and precooked meals for dogs, and owners getting matching tattoos with their dogs, and a recently spotted synthetic mullet wig for dogs.
Pastor John Goodman of the Houston Unity Baptist Church called on parishioners to cede their income-tax refunds to the church and warned that anyone who failed to come to the aid of the church is a “devil” and could be refused communion.

Joseph Price, 61, left the PNC Bank in Okeechobee, Fla., empty-handed despite having passed the teller a note demanding a “sack full of cash.”

He was arrested seven minutes after leaving the bank.
