Boner Candidate #1: YOU TWO HAVE FINISH THIS THING.

A Wisconsin woman was busted this week for instigating a brawl between two 8-year-old boys — socking one of them in the process, according to a report. The bizarre incident unfolded at 5 p.m. Sunday when the two boys had a skirmish, but then went their respective ways home after the fight, witnesses told police, according to the Journal Times. Following the fight, Marlo Thomas, 49 who lives on the same block as the boys, then allegedly went to one of the boy’s homes and dragged him down the block to continue to fight the other child, The Journal Times reported. Police say Thomas punched the other boy in the ear, knocking him over to let the other youngster get on top of him and hit him.

In all, the private flights cost the federal government as much as $60,000, according to a report by Politico, citing internal department documents.

Jeffrey Mezger, the chief executive of KB Home, one of the country’s largest homebuilders, was captured on audio Saturday night yelling at his neighbor, the comedian Kathy Griffin, using a series of sexist and homophobic slurs. The string of crude comments prompted an immediate backlash against Mr. Mezger, whose company is the sixth-largest publicly traded homebuilder in the country, according to the National Association of Home Builders. Criticism quickly followed the publication of Mr. Mezger’s recorded rant on Tuesday. Suze Orman, the former CNBC host, expressed disgust at the idea of buying a property from KB Home. “You really want to buy a home from this man?” she wrote on Twitter. “Beyond Disgusting!”
