Table Games: Sometimes, you have to put your money on the table and sometimes the table is worth a heck of a lot of money.
Kean University in New Jersey is under fire for buying a $219,000 conference table from China -- a country where the taxpayer-supported school is trying to expand its campus.
The 22-foot table has an illuminated world map and a motorized two-tiered glass turntable.
The price tag is prompting one lawmaker to ask the New Jersey attorney general to review the bidding process.
Quote -- "Whether or not this is legal, it's certainly not ethical and it's a waste of taxpayer money...I don't need a study to know a university shouldn't be spending up to $219,000 for a conference table. I already know it's wrong. So do the students and families struggling to afford a higher education."
The university's president told The Record News that the school got a good deal by going to China.
They're Great: Russian President Vladimir Putin's tiger is wanted by Chinese authorities.
State media say one of the Siberian tigers that Putin released into the wild is the prime suspect in a series of goat deaths in China.
Three goats are still missing.
The tiger -- which carries a tracking device -- crossed into China last month after being set free in May by the Russian president.
I Pardon Thee: Finally, tomorrow President Obama will fulfill his traditional role in pardoning the National Thanksgiving Turkey.
But in Seattle, the mayor is putting a West Coast spin on the tradition.
The mayor of Seattle has pardoned a tofurky.
It even had a name Brayburn the Tofurky.
For the unaware, tofurky is not a living creature.
It is a vegan food made of protein and tofu that is supposed to taste like turkey.
The event was part of a food drive competition between the city council and the Mayor's office, with the losing office having to hand deliver doughnuts to the winners.
