Wine connoisseurs already know this - technically, to be called "champagne," it must come from the Champagne region of France. Everything else must legally be called sparkling wine. It seems nobody knows this better than Canadian Danel Macduff. He was on a Sunwing Airlines flight to Cuba and ordered champagne. But he was served what he calls a cheaper sparkling wine. He seems to feel this is worthy of launching a class-action lawsuit against the airline. Sunwing calls the lawsuit frivolous saying Macduff took its marketing materials too literally: It promised "champagne vacations" and "champagne service," which it says were describing the overall "level of service" one would receive. A lawyer for Macduff retorts that it's really not at all "about the pettiness of champagne versus sparkling wine" but instead about the "consumer message." Lawyer Sebastien Paquette said, "You're trying to lure consumers by marketing something, and you're not giving them that something ... It's a dishonest practice." In the meantime, Sunwing is still pouring the bubbly, but has wiped the promise of "champagne service" from its marketing and advertises "sparkling wine" online. Paquette also claims some 1,600 people want to join the suit, which has not yet been "certified," which would set it on course for trial. Oh, and adding insult to injury - the "champagne" was reportedly served to Macduff in a plastic cup. (BBC)

Apple announced yesterday that an economic slowdown in China has weakened sales of its iPhones, Macs and iPads. The situation has forced the tech giant to lower its financial guidance. Apple says revenue for its fiscal first quarter will total about $84 billion, which is short of its $91.5 billion estimate. CEO Tim Cook explained to shareholders in a letter that the Trump administration's trade tariffs "appeared to reach consumers" in China and reduced retail sales there.

Comedian Bob Einstein died Wednesday following a battle with cancer. He was 76. Einstein, the older brother of comic actor/writer Albert Brooks, launched his show-business career as a writer on “The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour” in the late 1960s before creating the daredevil character Super Dave Osbourne that he performed in sketch comedy specials and on Showtime. Einstein more recently portrayed Larry David’s friend Marty Funkhouser in HBO’s “Curb Your Enthusiasm.”

Musician Daryl Dragon, who is best known as “The Captain” in the 1970s duo the Captain and Tennille, died Wednesday of renal failure. He was 76. Dragon paired with his longtime partner and ex-wife Toni Tennille in the duo. Their song "Love Will Keep Us Together" climbed to No. 1 in Nov. 1974, where it remained for eight weeks.

The wrestling world continues to mourn the loss of iconic host, Mean Gene Okerlund. This guy was so beloved that many people thought he should get into politics. But in the end, wrestling and politics were way too different. One is filled with ridiculous made up story lines designed to get the crowds all worked up. And the other is WRESTLING. (

A Massachusetts man accused of robbing a bank branch with a stick was captured after he fell out of a tree. 30-year-old Michael V. Taylor was arrested Monday after a four-hour search by police from five different departments. He was charged with armed robbery, resisting arrest, and failure to stop for police. Taylor allegedly demanded money from a teller at the People's United Bank at about 9:30 a.m. His weapon in the Christmas Eve robbery was a stick. He then fled the bank in a red Jeep and soon after a State Police lieutenant tried to pull him over, but he refused to stop. Taylor allegedly stopped the jeep in Holyoke and ran across the highway into the woods. That set off an intensive search and State Police and Easthampton K9 officers assisted with their dogs. Northampton Police Chief Jody Kasper said Taylor was able to elude police for hours until his hiding place gave way. Kasper said, “The tree branch that the suspect was standing on broke, sending him to the ground, sack of stolen cash in hand.” Taylor again tried to run away from police, but he was apprehended.
MOMENT OF DUH: Brought to you by

Back on Christmas Eve, a crappy prank landed a Pennsylvania man in jail on arson and other criminal charges. Firefighters and cops were dispatched following a report that a “bag of dog poop was lit on fire on a porch” in Shippensburg. A female tenant told police she was awoken when other residents spotted the fire and began “yelling to call 9-1-1 and to get out of the house.” The fire was quickly extinguished and there was no damage to the residence. Asked who might have set the bag of feces on fire, the tenant fingered 18-year-old Dylan Printz “due to them having a falling out that night and she told him he could not stay or be there anymore.” Police subsequently located Printz, who reportedly copped to starting the fire. He said that he “grabbed a brown paper bag from a Chinese food order” and filled it with dog poop. He then “put the bag of feces on the porch and lit it on fire with a Bic lighter.” (
