Ripping the Headlines Today, 10/21/14

Making fun of the headlines today, so you don’t have to

The news doesn’t need to be complicated and confusing; that’s what any new release from Microsoft is for.  And, as in the case with anything from Microsoft, to keep the news from worrying our pretty little heads over, remember something new and equally indecipherable will come out soon.

Really all you need to do is follow one simple rule:  barely pay attention and jump to conclusions.  So, here are some headlines today and my first thoughts:

headlines todayCarnival Cruise passenger doesn’t have Ebola

Although it’s still tough to tell the difference between Ebola symptoms and the normal effects of a Carnival Cruise.

Man, her parents must be relieved.

It would have been 21, but one walked into a bar with a Reverend and a Priest.

Well, pot does stay in the hair follicles after smoking.

Which answers the question, ‘Where’s Whacko?’

You’d think he’d be the perfect person to give out a BS.

For one there would have been no need to open its sister school Genitalwarts.
