Water Cooler: Miss Nevada USA, Kurt Busch, junk food ads

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

■ Miss Nevada USA Jade Kelsall u25B6 is named third runner-up in the 2012 Miss USA competition. But she’s No. 1 in our hearts.

■ A 3-year-old allegedly is served a screwdriver on a Hawaii dinner cruise. A SpongeBob SquarePants Fan Club ID apparently bears a striking resemblance to a Hawaii driver’s license.

■ Disney will ban junk food ads from radio, TV and online networks aimed at children. Well, Donald has been looking a bit paunchy lately …

■ NASCAR suspends Kurt Busch for a week for verbally abusing a member of the media. We like that sentence so much we’re gonna have it needlepointed on a pillow.
