Ripping the Headlines Today: Christmas Eve Edition!

Dec 242014

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 todayNorth Korean Internet shut down

It seems someone cut the string between the two tin cans.

Pet Smart purchased for 8.3 Billion dollars

In doggie dollars that’s 58.1 billion dollars.

Really, John? Then why the long face?

Proving Kardashians don’t have babies, they have spinoffs.

Rudy Giuliani blames Obama…

Good job, whoever decided not to tell Scott Rudin and Amy Pascal at Sony.

That must have been the time he slipped himself a roofie.

The Navy’s new robot looks and swims just like a shark

Still no word on which lawyer they used as the actual model.

Ringo Starr joins Rock Hall of Fame

The first ten seconds of his speech should be given by Pete Best.

Dick Cheney: ‘George W Bush approved all the torture methods’

But, enough about their sex life.

Sexy Russian spy ‘tried to seduce’ Snowden

Well, at least she picked a guy who clearly can’t keep a secret.

They’re going to sell it as a form of birth control.
