"It was sort of too perfect. My husband and I were scratching our head. Is it somebody playing a joke on us?" she said of the post on the site, which asks motorists on the street to comment on their vehicles.

It may be nearing the end of August, but there's no slowing the pace of street fests. This weekend is one of the busiest of the year, with tons of food trucks, bands and artists taking over neighborhoods from Little Italy to Pilsen to Bucktown and beyond. A handful offer ethnic ties - Festa Italiana, Brazil Fest, Taste of Greektown and Ukrainian Days - while others are all about celebrating their respective 'hoods.

With their sharp thinking and irreverent courtroom shenanigans, Jared Franklin and Peter Bash won many cases in the first season of TNT's "Franklin & Bash," and the show won many fans and earned a second season. A large part of the show's success is due to the playful chemistry between its stars, Breckin Meyer (Franklin) and Mark-Paul Gosselaar (Bash), who don't turn off the funny when they're not on set. Like when I ask Meyer about writing an episode this season, and Gosselaar teases his buddy that he gave his character more lines than he usually gets.
