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

Oreo has been revamping their advertising, and released an image of an Oreo cookie with a rainbow filling in honor of gay pride. There have been hundreds of thousands of likes on their Facebook post announcing the cookie, but there are also people promising to boycott the company.

Indiana Republican Senate Candidate Richard Mourdock pre-recorded his various responses to the Supreme Court's healthcare ruling, one video for each possible outcome. Those tapes have been leaked and they're on YouTube.
