Ellen DeGeneres Heron Problem
Ellen DeGeneres is struggling with a heron that is disrupting her peaceful life. She has been trying to figure out how to keep the heron from swooping into her backyard and stealing fish out of her pond. Talk about your first world problems.
She said that she and Portia De Rossi have been taking people’s suggestions, such as putting a plastic crocodile in the pond, and using a fake heron to deter the real one.
Nothing is working so far, but she is thinking about using an audience dancer to scare it away, since Herons are scared of sudden movements and loud noises. Today’s audience Dancer of the Day was Matt Wilson.

Ellen: JC Penney Flash Mob
Ellen is the new spokesperson for JC Penney department stores, and her involvement has been making headlines. The conservative group One Million Moms called for a boycott of the stores in light of Ellen’s gig there, saying that she does not promote family values.
“My haters are my motivators,” Ellen remembered saying at the time. Eventually, the group gave up their protest and admitted defeat.
Ellen said that the JC Penney brouhaha inspired some passionate fans to stage a flash mom in support of Ellen at their local mall. She showed a clip from their dance video, which would be a great way to break up a mundane day at the mall.

JC Penney has got to be thrilled with all the free publicity they are getting out of this endorsement deal with Ellen. Do you think Ellen is a controversial figure?
Ellen: DJ Tony’s Parking Problems
Recently Ellen has been pointing out DJ Tony’s inability to properly park in his assigned space. This week, she put hidden cameras up to watch Tony parking. His excuse for not making it in the lines is that he parks against a building and would have trouble getting out of his driver’s side door.
“I have never seen a worse parking job in my life,” Ellen said, proving that she has never been to a Walmart. DJ Tony even tried to correct his first bad parking attempt, only to park in exactly the same spot.
