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

Donald Trump fires back at sharp rebuke by Pope Francis

So, it’s ‘His Holiness’ against ‘His AssHoliness.’

Florida couple comes forward to claim share of $1.6 billion Powerball Jackpot prize

Or, as I now call them, ‘Mom and Dad.’

Donnie Wahlberg endorses Marco Rubio

Makes sense, a member of ‘New Kids’ endorsing a former member of ‘Menudo.’

What do you get for the girl who hasn’t earned anything?

Kanye West says he’s 53 million in debt

Someone should start a funding campaign on a site called PrickStarter.

Apparently, he was ‘prepositioned.’ And, I for one, am shocked, this sounds way more like a class in French.

Obama to skip Scalia’s funeral

It seems the President decided to not attend, opting to celebrate at home…

Donald Trump says he’s thinking of a 3rd party run

Wouldn’t be that surprising if he left GOP for a younger Eastern European party.

Who was at the door? Yoko?

Zuckerberg should open a new site to answer called LaughingInYourFaceBook.

This woman has got to stop ruining the good name of tequila.

Jeb! suspends his campaign

Although, he may need to check into rehab to get over his Koch addiction.

Happy 82nd birthday, Yoko Ono

For fun why don’t you go out and breakup Nickelback?

Bad news for Ted Cruz: his eligibility for president is going to court

Although, it hasn’t been determined yet in which of his three countries the case will be heard.

The following two tabs change content below.
