Breaking the ice with breaking news—

With your Rabbi…

President Obama landed in Israel in his first trip to the country since he took office and joked about “getting away from Congress” with Israeli President Shimon Peres on the tarmac. In a speech, Obama described the United States as Israel’s “strongest ally and your greatest friend.”

With your Catholic priest….

Pope Francis urged the Church to support civil unions for gay couples in 2010, according to a  New York Times report. At the time, Cardinal Bergoglio encouraged Argentina’s bishops to compromise by backing civil unions instead of the government’s gay marriage bill which Bergoglio described as a “destructive pretension against the plan of god.”

With your estranged son still looking for a prom date…

Kate Upton responded to a request from a nerdy high school senior.  Jake Davidson invited her via a YouTube video: “I’m gonna be real with you here, I don’t have a girlfriend, and with prom season coming around, that could be problematic for some. But I’m me, I’m Optimus Prime, and I see the glass half full….You’re the ying to my yang, I’m Jewish, 5’9 on a really good day – and I can’t dance at all. You’re Christian, 5’10, and that Cat Daddy video should have won an Oscar for best short film.” Kate’s reply via Twitter: “You can call me Katie if you want! How could I turn down that video! I’ll check my schedule ;)”

With your neighbor hosting a Spring yard sale this weekend…

A lucky New York family bought a small Chinese bowl for $3 at a garage sale six year ago. It was later identified as a one of only two remaining “Ding” bowl from the 10th or 11th century.  Yesterday the bowl sold in a Sotheby’s auction for over $2 million dollars.

With your toddler…

Melissa McCarthy introduced a new dance move with Elmo and a penguin on Sesame Street called “Flap-A-Waddle Boom Boom.”
