Ripping the Headlines, 1/26/21

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:

Peloton Bike
Typical Peloton bike use.

Can Biden bring his Peloton Bike to the White House?

And, if he can’t, what will he use to hang his clothes on?

Biden has now won more often in Georgia than anyone not named Nick Saban.

I thought he was retired, and no one had the onions to tell him.

Happy 99th birthday, Betty White

Look for her in Ft. Lauderdale filming ‘Golden Girls Gone Wild!’

Rex Tillerson: “We’re in a worse place today than we were before Trump came in”

Making him the Secretary of Stating the Obvious.

RIP, Larry King
