Ripping the Headlines Today, 5/26/20

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:

Because as we all know, the only way to stop a bad super-duper missile is with a good super-duper soaker gun.

Well, if you’re not covering your mouth and nose with a mask, then you’re just wearing a bib!

Channing Tatum seen taking out the trash in gold lamé

In fairness, you always have to be ready for a spontaneous season of ‘Dancing with the Stars’ breaking out around you!
