I'm not really sure who to blame on this one: the reporter who brought it up, or the press secretary who continued to entertain the question.
In a White House press conference on Friday, a reporter asked press secretary Josh Earnest what the president's reaction to Deflategate was.
Yes, that was a serious question. Clearly, the nation has nothing else on its mind.
Josh had a pretty good comeback. We'll give him credit for that, but then seriously, move along.
Not these reporters. Let's take the opportunity to grill a guy who has nothing to do with the story, and reallly no business weighing in on it.
By now you of course know that Kim Kardashian is releasing a book of selfies called "Selfish."
352 pages of selfies of Kim Kardashian.
Aimed, naturally, at people who don't have Instagram. Or Twitter. Or Facebook. Or the internet.
Anyway, Kim the Kween of Social Media shared the cover of her book with the world last week.
It's a picture of Kim, her hair wet, showing a lot of cleavage.
I know. Never saw it coming...
Remember the good old days when you actually had to watch the Super Bowl to see the Super Bowl commercials?
Time was, if you missed the Super Bowl, you might get a recap a day or two later, and then you'd have to wait to randomly catch the ads at some point after that.
No more. Thanks to social media and the internet, we can see the ads that will cost big bucks for their appearance in the Big Game days, weeks, months in advance.
Last week, the folks at Budweiser released their 90-second #upforwhatever human Pac Man ad during NBC's . Tonight Show
I guess we'll just have to watch the Super Bowl for the football now...
You never know what next to expect from 's Snooki - aka Nicole Polizzi. The Jersey Shore
I won't even make you guess.
This time, she's an ordained minister.
She announced it the way all things are officially announced these days - on Twitter.
She made her ministry official so she could perform the marriage of her hair stylists in Connecticut in June.
Since making the announcement, she's gotten a deluge of requests to officiate at marriages. She could turn this into a nice little side business.
How long do you think before this becomes a reality TV show?
On Saturday, New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick held a press conference to address the issue of deflated game balls in last week's AFC Championship game against the Indianapolis Colts.
The only thing missing was a white lab coat and a blackboard, and he could have been mistaken for anyone's high school science teacher.
This theory, based on his own observations and test, is that the delation was related to atmospheric conditions.
So the folks at Fox Sports turned to another science expert to take a shot at the coach's explanation.
Bill Nye the science guy isn't buying a word of it. He says there's one thing and one thing only that affects the pressure of a football.
Don't let me spoil it for you - watch the report...
Meghan Trainor may be all about that bass, but until Mr. Right comes along, no one's getting to see what her bass is all about.
"That's the trick, it's all about the mystery," she told London's Mail Online recently. "I save that for my boy. Well, for whoever gets to date me one day."
It's refreshing, in a way, that in this day and age when most of her peers seem to be in competition to wear as little as possible, that this pop star has some comparatively old-fashioned ideas.

Authorities have traced a new outbreak of the measles on the West Coast to the happiest place on Earth - Disneyland.
The thought is that "an infected foreigner" - that's how Time magazine reports it, anyway - carried the disease into the park sometime just before Christmas.
Through contact with unvaccinated individuals, the measles has spread. Again, that's a theory, this time from someone at the California department of health, as reported by news agency. Reuters
They're counting 70 cases so far that can be traced back, they believe, to Disneyland.
That's a lot of measles, especially when you consider it was thought to have been eradicated in the United States as of 2000.
Idina Menzel - better known to John Travolta as Adele Dazeem - will be taking a week off from her Broadway play, "If/Then."
And the play will shut down while she's gone.
So she can prepare for her appearance at the Super Bowl to sing the National Anthem.
She's probably not taking any chances, especially after she caught all sorts of flack for not being able to hit a high note during a live performance on New Year's Eve while singing her hit song from Frozen, "Let It Go."
So rest, relax, warm up, and practice those high notes, Adele!
Not a headline you'd normally associate with Will Ferrell, right?
Not to worry, it was all for a movie.
Will was in New Orleans, taping a scene for his new movie, Daddy's Home, during half-time at a Pelicans/ Lakers game.
A couple of guys in the audience were able to catch the action.
The first is this great shot on Twitter of the second after the moment Will's basketball hit the cheerleader in the face...
The second is this cell phone video of the whole scene, from the setup through Will's ejection from the building. It's a little shaky, but you get the idea...
There's another big Sunday looming in your future.
If you're a fan, that is. Walking Dead
On February 8, a week after the Big Game, the dead and the living and some in between return for Season 5.
In case you haven't seen it, here's the trailer...
If you're a Deadniac, you've probably got a viewing party planned that will rival any Super Bowl party, ever!
