Consummating your marriage on your wedding night is becoming a thing of the past.
Wedding night sex, which used to be, at the most, required and, at the very least, desired, seems to have lost its allure with modern day newlyweds.
The exact reason and precise number of couples who choose not to do it the night of their nuptials isn’t completely clear, though numerous surveys have been taken on the subject.
PITTSBURGH (AP) - Pittsburghers talk funny.
The city has "won" Gawker.com's ugliest accent tournament, besting the other finalist - Scranton - in a reader's poll with more than 54 percent of the vote.

This just in: Monica Lewinsky joined Twitter about two hours ago—and her second tweet was about the Forbes Under 30 Summit here in Philadelphia. We’re so on the map.

Bradley Cooper visited Jimmy Fallon on “The Tonight Show” Friday to talk about his lead role in the Broadway show “The Elephant Man.” Except there wasn’t much chatting going on between the two.
Fallon gifted Cooper with an Eagles visor topped with a spiked-hair wig, poking fun at Cooper’s look last week at Heathrow airport in London. In turn, Fallon sported a Jets visor topped with a blonde spiked-hair wig, which of course triggered their laughing spree.
The two couldn’t hold it together for more than a few seconds and failed hilariously to get more than a sentence in about “The Elephant Man," or anything else for that matter.
Russell Brand was threatened with arrest in New York earlier this week as he staged a protest outside Fox News headquarters after alleging he had been dumped from a planned TV appearance.
The comedian/actor claimed a planned guest spot on political pundit Sean Hannity's show was pulled at the last minute and he decided to make a mockery of the cancellation by campaigning on the street outside the channel's studios.
Capturing his protest and posting it on TheTrews video channel, Brand explained, "Here we are at Fox's headquarters, all the greats are here - Bill O'Reilly, Sean Hannity - all the people who refuse to have us on the show. "Sean Hannity, who booked us and then canceled us. So we are going to do a Trew special from here, in the heart of the establishment." But filming came to an abrupt end when a security guard approached him and asked, "Do you want to get arrested?"
