Ripping the Headlines Today, 10/22/18

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:

Canadian marijuana flag

Is Tilray a better Canadian marijuana stock to buy than Aurora Cannabis?

Hmmmmm, I’m thinking the best marijuana stock to buy is Doritos.

I guess there are good people on both sides.

Happy 56th Birthday, Evander Holyfield

And, a happy 22nd to your ear.

Ex-GOP Rep. Jason Chaffetz tweeted a photo of himself at Disneyland with a wooden statue of a Native American he called ‘Elizabeth Warren’

He then took a ride on ‘It’s a Small-Minded World After All’

It’s #NationalPastaDay

If it were a TV show, it’d be called, ‘House of Carbs.’

Two easy steps to a toned body

Trump’s going to Texas to help Cruz

That’s like sending Jeffrey Dahmer to rescue the Donner party.
