Gotta Watch: Whoopie pie dispute; candy caper; extreme skiing

Whoopie vs. blueberry – While the debate over a state dessert seems ridiculous enough, what's more is how seriously these lawmakers in Maine are taking this issue.

Gotta Watch: Cop car Houdini move; worst hotel; Egypt protest

Dude, where's my suspect? – You can file this video under "dumb criminals who think they're Houdini."  This burglary suspect obviously thinks it's a good idea to try to escape a moving police car while in handcuffs. The only thing he broke trying to escape was maybe his ego.

Gotta Watch: Baby ape; stolen urn; Conan redux

Baby ape! – A critically endangered baby gibbon ape is born at Chicago's Lincoln Park Zoo. This tiny ape looks more like E.T. than its mother. And like a hairless cat, it may be cute to some, but revolting to others.

Gotta Watch: Maher's musings, dump truck chase, train track save

Glenn Beck like L. Ron Hubbard - Bill Maher’s appearance on Sunday’s “Fareed Zakaria GPS” is getting a lot of attention online today. The host of “Real Time with Bill Maher” was asked how much he thinks the Tea Party is about religion.  Maher focused on FOX News’ Glenn Beck, saying, “I think he’s doing what some people before him have done, like L. Ron Hubbard, who is a novelist, and decided, ‘You know what? It’s a much easier gig to be a religious leader.’ ”

Gotta Watch: Spidey, AC's a bunny, church bans Facebook

Spider-Man is real! - Unemployment is a diabolical foe in New York City. Peter Parker can attest to that. His alter-ego Spider-Man was in town Wednesday alongside Mayor Michael Bloomberg to unveil a comic book called "Spider-Man, You're Hired," promoting the city's free career services. You'll notice Spidey didn't arrive on a web or crawl down a building. I guess he took the subway. Don't judge. He's probably tired from filling out job applications.

Gotta Watch: Bad prison flicks, 'Poacher X,' 1st royal wedding

Inmates subjected to bad movies - Do inmates have a right to television in jail? Debatable. However, a federal judge is reviewing a case filed by inmate James Poulin who says he has a right to media. Poulin claims he and other inmates are subjected to the same movies over and over instead of basic programming. Sounds like a case of torture, but then again, if President George W. Bush is still defending waterboarding ...

Gotta Watch: Deep-thinking lemurs, cheap geeks are chic

Thinking like a lemur - They're smart and adorable. You could call them the Natalie Portmans of the animal kingdom. Scientists at Duke University say the furry primates can understand numbers, and they've got the computer skills to prove it, albeit rudimentary. They say lemur intelligence may provide insight into how humans thought millions of years ago. This might leave you wondering, why can't we all be cute and smart?
