Ripping the Headlines Today, 3/9/15

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 today‘Women On 20s’ wants a woman to replace Andrew Jackson on 20 dollar bill

Yeah, but, with a woman on the 20, it would be worth only 77% or $15.40.

Which means the guy cleaning up behind them can no longer say, ‘what and leave show business?’

Vintage? I assume that means his flight came with a meal and no added charge for extra carry-on luggage.

Now, that takes a lot of balls.

Although, it remains the natural habitat of the suburban cougar.

Ironically, interest was low.

Putin says Russian military might has no match

Guessing he has yet to try Tinder.

Polls show he’ll get 100% of the vote from comedy writers.

Theater evacuated after drunk woman vomits at ‘Fifty Shades’ showing

Man, everyone’s a critic.

Presidential contender Ben Carson says prison inmates prove homosexuality is a choice

Look for the show, ‘Attica is the new Fire Island.’
