How many of you suffer from MSNS (Multiple Social Network Syndrome)? Is your day a whirlwind of activity hopping back and forth from Facebook to Pinterest to Instagram and Twitter? Are you so social that there’s no time left for work, play, or dare I say—romance?

In the meantime, I suggest you download an app and apply for disability.

Metropolis – a local newspaper reporter for the Daily Planet was arrested yesterday for public indecency and shoplifting.
According to witnesses, the incident occurred near a pay phone inside the Amtrak Rail terminal.
“Sandra and I were waiting for the four-nineteen when this young man wearing a business suit sidled up to the pay phone and began to undress,” said Dale Rogerson.
“He stripped down to a blue spandex jumpsuit that left nothing to the imagination. Sandra looked him over and said, ‘Where’s the beef?’”
Police arrested Clark Kent a short time later near Miller’s Produce stand, where he allegedly stole a large zucchini.
