Here are a few things in pop culture that caught our eye last week.
■ Clark County business license agents crack down on peddlers ■ along the Strip. Because only casinos are allowed to sell bottles of water for five bucks.
■ Contestants in the 2013 Scripps National Spelling Bee are required to also know the definitions of spelling bee words. Just a clever scheme to convince us that things like “guetapens” are actually words.
■ Nevada state senators 86 a move by the state Assembly to make Picon Punch the official state drink. Everybody knows Nevada’s state drink already is any drink that’s comped, served with a desperation chaser.
■ Barbara Eden wows fans when, at age 78, she appears in her “I Dream of Jeannie” costume at a charity event. That tingle we’ve always gotten from seeing her in that costume now is, frankly, a little confusing.
