The Morning Brain Buster:

Bonehead Of The Day:

An Atlanta-area cop got busted selling pot from his squad car while he was in uniform.

An informant tipped off the FBI after going to the cop's house for a social visit and seeing large amounts of weed all over the place.

The cop told him he wasn't worried about getting caught because he has an excellent driving record and would just flash his badge if he got pulled over.

They set up a "buy" and the cop showed up with an ounce of weed…he was driving his squad car, was in uniform, and was carrying his service pistol.

The buys got bigger, and eventually the cop arranged to transport pot and cocaine from Alabama to North Carolina.

Federal agents arrested him and found a pound of marijuana on him at the time. He could get life in prison.

The Last VW Hippie Van Will Be Made This Year

The VW hippie van was a staple in the 1960's....

There's been one factory left in Brazil that continued to make these vans, but this year they are closing shop and pressing out their final van. Because the vehicles do not have airbags or anti-lock breaks they are no longer compliant and cannot be manufactured.

Dont expect to stop seeing them around any time soon, though - the VW vans stand the test of time extremely well and will continue to be seen on the road for years to come.

Seeing Your Mother In Law Is Good For You

Seeing your mother-in-law is actually good for you. 

Researchers surveyed 2,000 people to analyze their overall happiness, and how many times they see their mom or mother-in-law.

They found that those who see just their mom or mother-in-law once a week are less happy while those who see both on a regular basis are much more satisfied.

Experts say people benefit from seeing their mom or mother-in-law because moms lend support and help around the house, and with the children.

17 Things You Should Never Say To Your Boss

While some bosses believe in open communication there are literally some things that are better left unsaid.

2. You never told me to do it
3. There's something wrong
4. I want to do what's easiest
5. That takes up too much time
6. I could be doing other things
7. I promise to do that
8. It's too difficult
9. I agree to disagree
10. I don't have an opinion
11. I can't
12. I'm not optimistic
13. I'm clocked out
14. That's not my responsibility
15. That's not my job
16. I don't like working with other people
