Ripping the Headlines Today, 4/13/21

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:


Republicans have now called for boycotts of MLB, NBA, NFL, WNBA, NASCAR and MLS

The only sport left for Republicans to watch will be MyPillow Fights.

Senate Democrats to move to federally legalize marijuana

… and tax nachos and donuts to really make it worth it.

Sounds like someone just threw Gaetz under the school bus and then backed it over him.

UK Covid variant now dominant in the US

… which makes it the most dangerous virus ever from the UK since the Piers Morgan’s CNN days.

Tiger Woods was driving about 85 m.p.h. in a 45 m.p.h. zone when he crashed

Look for Tiger Woods on a special episode of Law and Order: SUV.

“Stay out of politics,” Republican leader McConnell tells U.S. CEOs

Helluva way to start a fundraiser letter there, Mitch.

Nick Cannon returning as Masked Singer host

… or, is that really him? Hmmmmm…

Twitter will not allow the National Archives to make Trump’s past tweets available on the platform

Psychology Today’s website, on the other hand.

Prince Philip passed away at 99

He didn’t look a day over 132.

“Uh-Oh”: Vaping Hannity, glasses askew, totally unprepared after commercial break

… well, at least, we now have an answer to the question “what the f**k is this guy smoking?” …
