Ripping the Headlines Today, 6/27/16

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

Gary Busey is waiting by his giant seashell for the call.

They also announced from now on the band will be known as ‘The Rolling Stones.’

Barkley isn’t worried about eating his words; he’s eaten just about everything else.

On a side note, King has supported every winning candidate since Polk.

I hear she even has a pet name for him: ‘Double Album.’

Seems he’s never been to Washington DC and wants to check it out.

Which also should be Arnold’s slogan when dealing with maids.

Or, one of Shaquille O’Neal’s shoes.

China: Video appears to show corporate trainer spanking bank employees for poor performance

No word how many were spanked for good behavior.
