John Rocker, the infamous former Braves pitcher, has finally unleashed his opinion about the relocation of the team. For the man who is mainly remembered for his 1999 tirade about the diverse residents of New York, his piece about the Ted is a pretty staid retread about crime and maximizing return on investment.

Cinnabon, the infamous Atlanta-based calorie bomb purveyor, has finally unleashed a vodka based on its signature treat.

The United States Senate, the infamous 100 member legislative chamber in the bicameral legislature of our country, voted to eliminate the use of the filibuster against presidential nominees. Pushed along by the Democratic majority, the measure passed 52 to 48.

Marijuana, the infamous recreational drug that was legalized in Colorado in 2012, was the target of several raids made Thursday morning by "the Drug Enforcement Administration, Internal Revenue Service Criminal Investigations, the Denver Police Department and state and local law enforcement." This comes after the Justice Department had announced it would respect the rights of states to regulate marijuana.

Joseph Kony, the infamous Ugandan warlord who inspired the Kony 2012 upheaval, might be willing to surrender. You did it Facebook sharers! You did it retweeters! Slacktivists of the world, unite and takeover. Never forget: It only takes five fingers to make a fist post.
