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

A round of applause — Most theaters have a ban on cell phones - the Donetsk National Ukrainian Music and Drama Theatre has a ban on assault rifles. Despite months of violence between Ukrainian forces and pro-Russian separatists, Donetsk is keeping its theater doors open, according to a Reuters report, staging plays including "The Three Musketeers" (in Russian rather than Ukrainian, naturally).

Show your patriotism! Just not like that. — China announced a ban today on singing its national anthem, "The March of the Volunteers," at weddings, funerals and other non-political, non-dignified events, according to a Xinhua agency report, cited by Reuters. Anyone found breaking the ban will be "criticized and corrected," a punishment that's somehow both vague and terrifying at the same time.

Here comes Zombie Santa - so run! — He knows if you've been bad or good... and doesn't much care A Nashville haunted house offers up a holiday attraction featuring Zombie Santa, evil elves and a demonic reindeer. Just like Norman Rockwell imagined. Scientists in Britain say they've developed a new ingredient that makes foods feel more filling when eaten.

Fries, cigarettes and decomposed human brains — Belgium becomes lord of the fries The European nation seeks to make its tasty fried potatoes recognized as a global cultural heritage. Chimps are chumps: court A New York appeals court shoots down an effort to give chimpanzees "legal personhood." Another day, another asteroid-chaser Japan launches its own space probe in an effort to gather space samples from an asteroid.

Are you above a good poop joke? Then scat! — Video: Merry Christmas and a crappy New Year! A Spanish figurine of a person pooping is placed at nativity scenes as a sign of good luck during the holidays. Bringing new meaning to 'double-shot' latte Starbucks is bringing the booze to some of its stores. Signs of intelligent life?

A fight worth fighting — Gillibrand takes on military sexual assault The New York senator renews her effort to overhaul how the armed services handle sexual assault cases. Another landmark for gay men in sports A nearly three-decade veteran umpire for Major League baseball comes out. An Australian man files for an IPO on his medical marijuana business.

First things first — When is a threat not a threat? It's a First Amendment case worthy of a T.V. special - and not just because it features the chief justice of the Supreme Court reading Eminem lyrics from the bench. And speaking of the First Amendment...

Electroshock childbirth — Best birth control ever A hospital in China gives men the chance to experience labor pains - by shooting electric shocks into their abdomens. Wildlife officials are helping bighorn sheep make a comeback in the American wild. Scientists discover a most adorably named crustacean in the waters of South Africa.

A dubious art buy — A 1914 watercolor painted by Adolf Hitler goes on the auction block. If you can't take the heat... Real estate experts explain how to win in America's hottest real estate markets. And they said re-gifting was tacky Pope Francis plans to raffle off presents he has received - including a Fiat and a Panama hat - to raise money for the poor.

Fashion, policed — Hundreds of protesters took to Nairobi's streets after footage emerged of attacks on women wearing miniskirts. What could possibly go wrong? Russia plans to release its own version of Wikipedia in order to provide "detailed and reliable" information about the country. Seems legit. The Holy See heads to the U.S.
