Sunny and nearly 70° in DC when I captured this image on a lunchtime stroll. It won’t last, but I’m enjoying the heck out of it while it does.

On this day in 1985, the Chicago Bears released the famous “Super Bowl Shuffle,” a memorable song about their hopes of winning the NFL championship. The song proved to be true as the Bears would roll through the playoffs, culminating in a 46-10 victory over New England in Super Bowl XX. (Paul Natkin/Getty Images)

No matter where you are Tuesday night, chances are you’ll be able to watch The Daily Show and Colbert Report’s live election night shows.

The Daily Show’s “Election Night 2012: This Ends Now” and The Colbert Report Presents “Election 2012: A Nation Votes, Ohio Decides; The Re-Presidenting of America: Who Will Replace Obama? ‘012!” will both air live on Comedy Central from 11:00-11:30 p.m. ET (8:00-8:30 p.m. PT) and 11:30-midnight ET (8:30-9:00 p.m. PT) respectively, and will be simulcast on MTV’s Times Square JumboTron.

And for the first time ever, both shows will stream live on comedycentral.com, iOS and Android enabled devices, Xbox consoles and through The Daily Show Headlines App

Getting the latest, up-to-the-minute election night hilarity while you poop* has never been easier!

*Please don’t poop in Times Square.

The abbreviation “OMG” is almost 100 years old — thanks to the British military!

The earliest known usage of “O.M.G.” has been discovered in a 1917 letter to Winston Churchill from British Admiral Lord John Arbuthnot Fisher.

Further proof that there is nothing new under the sun!

Should I be bitter that the National Archives didn’t post my birth certificate? After all, that, too happened 7/24/69.
