Ripping the Headlines Today, 3/23/15

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 TodayMitt Romney is going to fight Evander Holyfield

Apparently, Mitt likes getting beaten by black guys.

Remind me again, which one of those guys got eaten by the tiger in Vegas?

Secret Service immediately removed Sarah Palin as a suspect because the sender got the address right.

Making it the only thing in the store made in America.

Or, a retired accountant from New Jersey who’s gotten way too much sun.

So, now it’s back to French fries, but English muffins are now ‘freedom muffins.’

Makes sense, ‘Playboy’ makes its money showcasing giant boobs.
