GoDaddy has pulled the ad they released on YouTube earlier this week (and had planned to air on Sunday during the Super Bowl) after animal rights activists freaked out over puppy cruelty issues. The spot itself was meant to be a parody of “Lost Dog,” Budweiser’s follow-up to last year’s “Puppy Love,” but apparently it was a misfire.

The ad itself sees an adorable dog bounding around until the audience falls in love with it, at which point it finds its owner, who is relieved because she had just sold the dog on her GoDaddy website and was about to have it next-day shipped.

Animal rights activists, however, didn’t appreciate the joke. Or, instead of recognizing it was a JOKE, decided to

New York City's mayor is defending a complete travel ban officials ordered ahead of a snowstorm overnight that halted subway service and cleared city streets of cars even as New York City got far less snow than feared.

The travel ban was a "no-brainer based on the forecast" New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said today at a news conference.

Forecasts called for perhaps two feet of snow. Most of the city got far less, though 11 inches fell at LaGuardia Airport in the eastern borough of Queens, which was harder hit than other parts of the city.

Responding to a question about potential loss of business amid the travel ban, de Blasio said if the storm had hit at the strength of the most

NEW YORK - New York is the city that never sleeps but you wouldn't know it early Tuesday morning.

8 million people have gone inside and streets are deserted, except for the snow plow trucks making their rounds.

The first big storm of the year may drop up to 3 feet of snow on Boston and New York before it ends Tuesday, with freezing rain and strong wind gusts possibly reaching 70 mph. Blizzard and winter storm warnings have been issued from Maryland through Maine and into Canada.

The massive blizzard is set to hit a 250-mile stretch of the Northeast United States, affecting tens of millions of people from New Jersey to Maine.

Up to two feet of snow is expected in coastal states

NEW YORK - As millions of residents in the Northeast braced for a powerful blizzard set to sweep across the region, states announced travel bans and the suspension or reduction of public transit, thousands of flights were grounded, and officials urged people to leave work early before heavy snow and high winds would make travel treacherous.

"This will most likely be one of the largest blizzards in the history of New York City," Mayor Bill de Blasio said on Monday afternoon. He announced schools would be closed Tuesday and ordered all drivers off the roads by 11 p.m. Monday.

Cities big and small along the Philadelphia-to-Boston corridor of more than 35 million people began shutting down

Documentary filmmaker Michael Moore has declared that snipers are not heroes in regard to the Oscar-nominated film about a former Navy SEAL sniper who existed mainly to snub the life of named enemy lists.

In a series of Tweets, Moore said, "My uncle killed by sniper in WW2," Moore wrote. "We were taught snipers were cowards. Will shoot u in the back. Snipers aren't heroes. And invaders r worse."

Another tweet agreed, stating "America has proven it is backwards, does not stand for what it preaches, is cowardly and glorifies torture, bombing, invading other countries without just cause, has cartoon films for the juvenile masses instead of films with messages as they use to produce. Amer

BAKER CITY, Oregon - Black ice is believed to be the cause of a freeway pileup involving more than a dozen tractor-trailers that left 12 people injured Saturday in eastern Oregon, police said.

Among those rescued was pickup truck driver Kaleb Whitby, 27, who miraculously escaped with minor injuries after he was sandwiched in his vehicle crushed between two big rigs. He was trapped for about 30 minutes inside the wreckage -- a scene captured by a photographer whose own truck became disabled in the pileup.

"Thank God that I'm still alive," Washington state resident Whitby told OregonLive.com. "Now I've got to go figure out why."

On the foggy, icy Oregon interstate, Kaleb Whitby plowed
