Thanks everyone for playing the puzzle. Scores were pretty good, so you guys are up on your current events! I wrote it pretty quickly and realizing it was time sensitive I submitted it to my editor Sploofernatural for editing advice.
Not much needed wordsmithing but kudos to Sploofernatural for the fast overview & suggesting any changes as needed ------ and getting it in the queue.
I'll list all ten clues/phrases at the bottom.

I have a feeling that several of these events will stay in the news for awhile.
Let's hope the oil spill mess is under control soon. Anyone know how to stop a volcano?

Now- for a really VERY CURRENT EVENT- today is May 14.
It's-................................... Dance Like a Chicken Day!
So if you're all ready and willing- get off that chair and away from your computer- let's dance.

Don't know how?

Here some help. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6UV3kRV46Zs

Thanks - wasn't that fun? My wife thinks I'm nuts. She never tells a lie.
Okay thanks again. Here is the list so you are in the know!
