Luke Burbank, host of the podcast "Too Beautiful to Live," brings us his weekly wrap-up of the week’s awesome and not awesome news.

Luke tells us about his impressive victory, and resulting hangover, from a comedy show competition Tuesday night. Plus, Florida's state legislature has overturned a 45-year-old ban on dyeing animals just in time for Easter. Poultry farmers say coloring baby chicks by injecting food coloring into the egg before the chick hatches is harmless.

And in Arizona, it may soon become illegal to "terrify, intimidate, threaten, harass, annoy or offend" through an electronic device or on the Internet. The law would cover just about every YouTube comment we've ever seen.
