Here are a few recent pop culture tidbits that caught our eye.
■ This year’s Burning Man festival attracted a peak crowd of almost 66,000 on its final day. Only about half of whom now remember being there at all.
■ A package returned for insufficient postage helps British, Austrian and Hungarian police break up an international gang that allegedly deals in fake medicines. Soon to be dramatized in the next James Bond thriller, “On Her Majesty’s Postal Service.”
■ Britney Spears reportedly badmouths her ex to the audience during a performance at Planet Hollywood Resort. It took a while, but this residency is finally starting to get interesting.
■ A glitch in the “Madden” video game shrinks the digital version of linebacker Christian Kirksey to a mere 14 inches tall. Wouldn’t Ankle-High Football League games be fun to watch?
