Editor/Producer @Reuters. Opinions mine, RTs not endorsements, etc. Bad jokes, worse puns. I'm with him: @bobalevine.

Tax season sure is… taxing — Next to death and taxes, you can add a third thing that's certain in life: human error. With tax season around the corner, the Reuters Money team has compiled its list of the top three biggest tax mistakes that even intelligent tax filers (few and far between they may be) make regularly.

Before approaching this shrimp, you’ll need a cocktail — He had four-eyes, spiky claws and, scientists say, a very bad attitude. Meet Yawunik, a 508 million-year-old creature that looked like a terrifying shrimp, according to experts. A newly discovered fossil site in Canada is giving researchers better insight into Yawunik, a predatory creature whose body was broken down into 17 parts and whose antennae were also made of large claws.

Leaping over opponents in a single bound! — Move over, G.I. Joe. A Brooklyn couple has raised $15,000 to begin production on a Hillary Clinton action figure, Reuters reports. The action figure - dressed in a pantsuit, naturally - is intended as a show of support for the would-be presidential candidate. No word on whether she has any super powers.

No elephants were harmed in the making of this post — Forget AAA. An 18-wheeler containing a cargo of elephants wound up stranded on the shoulder of the road in Louisiana, about to tip over, Reuters reports. The driver -- yes, he's an elephant trainer -- removed his elephants from the trunk (pun intended) and instructed them to prop up the vehicle.

Birds of a feather poop together — Who let the dogs out? The U.S. Park Service, potentially. The federal agency may soon employ dogs - border collies, to be specific - to chase off and ultimately reduce the Canada goose population at popular Washington, D.C., landmarks, according to Reuters.

Garbage. Garbage everywhere. — That's not a buoy -- that's a wad of plastic garbage. Rio de Janeiro's mayor says that Guanabara Bay, the site of the sailing events for the upcoming 2016 Olympics, will not be as clean has he had promised the Games officials, Reuters is reporting.

A new Confederate fight — The Supreme Court is not afraid to mess with Texas. The U.S. high court will begin hearing arguments for a case involving a Confederate flag specialty license plate, Reuters reported. Texas had rejected a proposed vanity plate design that bore the Confederate flag and announced that the driver was a self-described "Son of the Confederacy," after public outcry over the symbol's long and persistent association with racism and slavery.

Birds of a feather — Angry Birds, big screen. The world-famous Angry Birds game may not be as popular as it once was (looking at you, Candy Crush), but designer Rovio is betting on its success as a movie, Reuters reports. The 3D animated film, expected to cost around $80 million to make, is slated for release May 2016 .

Your iguana is totally baked — Whiskey for my men, beer for my horses - and weed for my glaucomic cat. A Nevada state lawmaker wants to make medical marijuana available for sick pets, Reuters is reporting. Pet owners would need veterinary confirmation that their critters suffer from an ongoing, debilitating condition - and would somehow need to prove that pot can lessen the symptoms of said condition.

How much is that zebra in the window? — Anyone looking to adopt a camel? Around 2,000 animals could soon be homeless, when a ban on exotic animals in circuses goes into effect in Mexico July 8, Reuters reports. Elephants, giraffes and other creatures are simply too pricey to keep on board once the prohibition begins, circus owners say, with the average daily food bill for a tiger nearly $200.
