Queen Elsa made an brief cameo at a boring Senate Finance Committee hearing on Thursday.

Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack was trying to speak, when “Let It Go” started blaring from across the room.

The culprit turned out to be Republican Sen. Pat Roberts from Kansas, who is apparently a closet “Frozen” fan.

“Aw, come on,” he said, turning it off while everyone in the room laughed. “Just let it go mister.”

A spokesperson later clarified to The Washington Post that the ringtone is actually for his kids. he also

“He balances it with Johnny Cash’s ‘I Walk the Line,'” she said. “He changes depending on the day.”

Riiiiight. Whatever you say Roberts.

Homophobia of the Day: Dieseltec Auto Repair Shop in Michigan Says It Won’t Serve Gays

Here we go again.

Brian Klawiter, the owner of Dieseltec auto repair shop in Grandville, MI declared on the business’Facebook page Tuesday that they will not serve gay people because “homosexuality is wrong, period.”

From the post:

Enough is enough. Our rights as conservative Americans are being squashed more and more everyday. Apparently if you are white (or close to it), you have a job, go to church, and own a gun… That translates into racists, privileged, bigot, conspiracy theorist. Too many of us say nothing. Well, freedom of speech isn’t just for Liberals, THEY are the ones that need to learn to “co-exist”, THEY are the ones who need to WORK to be “equal”

So if you’re looking for a lube job, gays, look elsewhere, because Mr. Klawiter is not going to service you. Even if you have one of these sexy problems listed on his website.

Is your Duramax smoking? Does your Powerstroke not start when it’s hot? How about your Cummins, is it putting down the power it could be?

In fact, if you are gay and bring your car in for repairs, he jokes that he will put your vehicle together with all bolts and no nuts and you can see how that works.”

It might sound like a threat, but he later clarified his comments.

The bolt and nut thing was a reference to physiology, bolt penis and nut v@gina. I DID NOT threaten to purposely put a vehicle together wrong to harm someone.

While gays are not welcome, he says that guns are encouraged. He is offering a special deal to anyone who brings a firearm into his shop.

And as with the Memories Pizza debacle, the company’s Yelp page has already been inundated with negative reviews and humorous comments.

But don’t think about raising hundreds of thousands of dollars on a GoFundMe page for the poor guy, because he won’t take it.

“I also am not asking for anyone to do the gofundme postings,” he wrote. “We are a successful business and are blessed to be able to feed our families. If there is any money raised it will be redistributed to people with greater needs than ours.”

Here are some highlights from Yelp so far.

From Newsday:

“He said he had bedbugs in the car, and someone told him if he saturated them with alcohol, it would kill them,” said arson Det. Sgt. Edward Fitzgerald. “So he went and bought some alcohol, he poured it all in there and he sat in his car and lit a cigarette..”

The intense heat from the fire heavily damaged two other cars, police said. Kemery was able to escape his burning car on his own, police said. He remained in the emergency room Tuesday night, but was expected to be admitted, police said.

Photo of the Day: Bobcat Catches Shark on Beach in Florida

Meanwhile, in Florida… a bobcat was spotted at Sebastian Inlet State Park in Vero Beach dragging a shark along the sand.

And it’s got the Internet talking, because that is one badass bobcat.

What do you think this is Bobcat, Australia?

The photographer, John Bailey, says that the beast leapt into the water to grab it while it was busy eating another fish.

The cat then pulled it out of the ocean and onto the sand. He eventually dropped the shark and fled because it got scared (presumably from having his photo being taken), so he didn’t even get to enjoy his meal.

Commenters, of course, are questioning the validity of the photo, but experts say it’s actually a pretty normal occurrence.

“There is no reason to believe it’s fake,” said a rep from the Florida Wildlife Conservation Commission.

On the FWC Facebook page, the group says it’s most likely an adult Atlantic Sharpnose Shark.
