Water Cooler: CJ, f-bomb and airport security


Here are a few things in news, entertainment and pop culture that caught our eye last week.

■ A stranded personal watercraft rider swims to John F. Kennedy International Airport, jumps a fence, hikes across two runways and enters the terminal soaking wet, wearing a yellow life jacket and completely unnoticed. Good thing Aquaman is one of the good guys.

■ CJ, the chimp that twice escaped its enclosure for romps through the neighborhood, is taken to an Oregon sanctuary. You know you've crossed a line when Las Vegas has to deport you.

■ A Pennsylvania woman is arrested in the poisoning of her boyfriend with Visine in an attempt to get him to pay more attention to her. Mission accomplished.

■ Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary adds "f-bomb." Well, it's about ... um, it's about time.
