On the left: three anchors of WPMI-TV, an NBC affiliate, on the station's billboard. On the right - a live Twitter feed with a breaking news tweet of tree people accused of gang rape. Not the anchors, of course. Some other three people. Filed as fail.

Honey, did you take out the trash? Did you remember to buy milk? Don't forget the keys! Oh, and where the hell is that birth certificate?
