What a twit. I mean tweet! On Tuesday, Miley Cyrus fired back at the haters who were calling her fat on Twitter. She defended her womanly curves by saying she loved her body and posted a picture of Marilyn Monroe with the caption: "Proof that you can be adored by thousands of men even when your thighs touch. " I'm proud of Lil Miss Thang. Not because I necessarily agree with her retort, but for an 18-year-old who's had some pretty un-Disneylike slip-ups, the girl really tried to set an example for her 3.5 million Twitter followers.

As the Bears prepare to play Arizona on Sunday, they need other teams to lose for them to make the postseason. But just because you need help to get into the playoffs doesn't mean you can't do some damage once you're there. Here are recent teams who made a name for themselves despite entering Week 16 with similar or worse records than the Bears. In other words, it ain't over till it's over.   2008 Arizona Cardinals Entering Week 16 : 8-6 Finished: 9-7, lost Super Bowl The Cardinals clinched their division in Week 14 and, at 8-5, were still in the race for a...

Count me as a guy seriously bummed about Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos' ignominious exit from this year's NFL playoffs, but not for any football reason (although my opinion of Patriots quarterback Tom Brady shares a lot in common with how I view the pus-like fluid that accumulates in the chaffing fat rolls of hippopotamuses). No, I love Tebow and want him to succeed because he is one of those big, bold, brash, larger-than-life public figures who demonstrates so perfectly the utter vapidity and silliness of religion.

RedEye has a special video treat for you for the NCAA tournament. Chicago mind reader Mark Toland ( @MarkTolandLive ), who performs in the city and throughout the Midwest, came to us with an idea: After Selection Sunday, he would make predictions for the Final Four, seal them in an envelope, then see if he was right after the tournament had played out. We took him up on it, and above is the video proof. And lest you think that's where his talents end, we assure you that is not the case.

The Internet is a wonderful thing.  Today's proof: a random photo, posted to Reddit , of Yeezus himself in a zip-line business office in Mexico. Why is it special? Because it depicts an extremely sad -- or maybe just pooped -- picture of Kanye West sitting in the background as his wife Kim Kardashian poses with another man. Kim, at least, looks like she's having a great time.  There's little more context than that, other than the Reddit user who posted it says he doubts it's ever made it's way online, and the photo's timestamp says it was...

Three seasons in, you'd think the lovable stoner bros from Comedy Central's “Workaholics” would have defiled every pillar of professionalism at TeleAmericorp, not to mention done every drug there is. Oops, they've never taken a business trip - or dropped acid - which makes the Season 3 premiere, “The Business Trip” ( 9:30 p.m. May 29, Comedy Central; 3 stars ), a delightfully hallucinatory binge of laughter. As the episode begins, Adam, Blake and Ders (stars and creators Adam DeVine, Blake Anderson and Evanston native...
