Billionaire Warren Buffet is offering a huge annual prize for his March Madness Bracket Challenge. Buffet says an employee at his company, will get $1 million a year for life if they come up with the perfect bracket. But Buffet’s not stopping there. He says if a team from his home state of Nebraska wins the national title, he’ll up the prize to $2 million. Employees don’t have to get the perfect bracket to bring home some extra cash. Buffet gives $100,000 to whoever can keep their bracket intact the longest.
A Kansas City radio host (Carrington Harrison @cdotharrison) has a bracket of his own of hip hop proportions. He tweeted out a Kanye Madness Bracket that pits the rapper’s best songs against each other. The bracket is divided into regions based on his family members. His daughter, North West, his late mother, Donda, newborn baby girl, Chicago and his son, Saint. Some Twitter users are having the hardest time deciding which “Yeezy” song should be crowned the winner.

The “Museum of Failure” features products and technology such as Google Glass, and fast food giant McDonald’s “arch burger” that never became a hit with the lunch crowd.

Cincinnati Zoo’s superstar Fiona the hippo has a suitor!!! The San Antonio Zoo posted a public declaration of “Timothy’s” love for “Fiona” online. It reads in part:
“Dear Fiona. My name is Timothy. I have seen you on the internet at the Cincinnati Zoo and you are the most beautiful hippo i have ever seen! Perhaps we can meet someday and be boyfriend and girlfriend. I am single and available.” The Cincinnati Zoo responded in part: “Fiona thinks you’re cute too, but it’s what’s on the inside that counts! Your DNA will decide if you’re the one for our little diva. Most importantly, are you willing to relocate to Cincinnati?” We’ll have to wait and see if the potential romance goes anywhere.
