Brad's morning edition

Check back with this afternoon for more jokes from Brad.

* Lexus of Omaha has a $453,000 car for sale. There is absolutely no truth to the rumor that Mayor Jim Suttle called to inquire about a lease.

* A movie theater that I personally enjoy -- Omaha's Dundee Theater -- is about to undergo a major renovation. That seems silly. Wasn't the Dundee just renovated in 1931?

* Thursday is Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day. Actually, with the state of the economy, it's now called Take Our Daughters and Sons to Where Daddy Used to Work Day.

* In an embarrassing incident, the Charlotte Bobcats took their sons and daughters to work. The kids beat them 88-74.

* Members of the U.S. Congress brought their kids to work and showed them how to get paid while just killing time.

* There has been a Rolls-Royce recall. Oh, no. This will basically strand the Mitt Romney campaign.

* Newt Gingrich has unofficially dropped out of the presidential race. To show he was through, he left his shoes in the center of the debate stage. That's the tradition.

* Gingrich is going to formally drop out of the race on Tuesday. He realized it was time when he noticed that he has more ex-wives than supporters.

* Gingrich will reportedly leave the race deep in debt. That was apparent from his latest campaign slogan: "Can you spare 20 bucks till Tuesday?"

* Mitt Romney supports President Obama's new student loan proposal. Romney supports an Obama proposal? Apparently the Mayans were right.

* In Milwaukee, two women were charged with brawling over a guy who's in jail. Who can blame them? You know what they say - all the good men are incarcerated.

* Two women were brawling over a guy who's in jail. This sounds like every Jerry Springer show of the past 20 years.

* The New Orleans Saints are accused of eavesdropping on opponents during games. Rival coaches got suspicious when they were urged to speak directly into the yard marker.
