Ripping the Headlines Today, 12/14/20

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:

Nobody’s too worried because only garlic, a wooden stake, or sunlight can kill him.

Mike Tyson-Roy Jones Jr. fight reportedly brought in $80 million

… but is worth $140 million, if you factor in those AARP discounts.
