Extra! Extra! It's Election Day. Fifty people were killed in Baghdad blasts. A plague is threatening the lives of 50 million goats and sheep in southern Africa.
So what's the story that seems to be getting the most play in today's news?
Kim Kardashian broke her toe.
Yup. A tragedy for both the comely Ms. K and the fractured digit -- I give you that. The rest of us remained (reasonably) healthy as we breathlessly awaited updates on the subject. And we weren't disappointed. They came. And they came. And they came.
First up ... the original Kardashian tweet: "I knew my clumsiness would catch up with me at some point! I tripped on a suit case on the floor and broke my toe :-(”
EOnline weighed in with this: "This little piggy went all the way to the hospital."
