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

Nick Cannon named Radio Shack ‘Chief Creative Officer’

It should have been Shaquille O’Neal, so they could rename it Radio Shaq.

Tom Brady mad at the refs

The deflated balls on that guy.

‘Cyber Monday’ hits sales record

I’m just thankful ‘Cyber Monday’ is over and people can go back to using the Internet for what it was intended…. Facebook and porn.

Happy birthday 80th, Woody Allen

Or, as Mia Farrow calls it ‘You F$&@ing S*#% Day.’

Ted Cruz says Planned Parenthood gunman was “transgender leftist activist”

Which is also how he’s been describing Marco Rubio…

Although, technically, Kardashians don’t actually have kids, they have spinoffs.

President Obama urges world action on climate change: ‘Hour is almost upon us’

I’m just glad he didn’t say, ‘if you like your weather, you can keep your weather…’

Why you should never walk into a job interview empty-handed…

It’s why I always steal something from the reception desk.

Well, at least, one of them can claim a recent hit.

How? By raising money through Sheik downs?

Congressional Republicans refuse to discuss new gun legislation after San Bernardino massacre

Looks like congressional Republicans and the NRA are playing bad cop/out of your damn mind cop.

Hillary Clinton campaign made a move that shows how far ahead she is

At least the Prez was away when she measured for those curtains in Oval Office.

Trump: No-one has spent more money in helping the American people with disabilities than me

Donald, it doesn’t count what you spend on you.

Happy 67th birthday, Ozzie Osbourne

I worry about Ozzie. If he had a stroke how would we know?
