Ripping the Headlines Today, 2/8/15

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 TodayBrian Williams taking himself off air temporarily

Which should give him time to restore order to the streets of Gotham City.

I guess it’s ok, as long as they didn’t let him drive.

I guess it’s back to the dating scene on EHarmMe.

Ok, now we’re talking my kinda pole tax.

Especially from Brian Williams who was wounded during them.

Jeez, the ball on that guy.

My bet is a comedian with an incurable disease asked for this from ‘Make A Wish.’

I’m guessing this has nothing to do with the military.

Which is closest NY Jets have gotten to Super Bowl in years.

Or, as Rand Paul calls them ‘his base.’

Hey, people, time to cut Brian Williams some slack. The man did kill Osama Bin Laden.
