1. Drag of the day: Pizza Hut allegedly kicked out a patron in Wallace, N.C., for entering the chain restaurant in a dress. The managers say what bothered them was the guy never ordered anything.

2. Movie nation of the day: New site Slacktory has a great chart of the most popular Netflix film for each state.

I can't really tell, but I'm pretty sure Delaware's is "Final Destination."

3. Mila and the Marine update of the day: Welp, it looks like their date might not be happening, because Kunis is super-duper busy. But maybe it will anyway? Stay tuned!

4. Russia's terrible double-entendre of the day: Not only does its cigarette brand Kiss market to teenage girls, but its ads translate to, approximately, "I love everything new, delicious and round!"

5. Comedian grab bag of the day: This episode of the Web show "Low Standards" is a must-watch for anyone who has ever wondered what Julie Klausner, Victoria Jackson, Andrew Dice Clay and Lea Thompson would say to each other if forced to have a conversation.
