LeBron, Hemsworth, Rubio, Roger Stone, Trudeau

LeBron James caught some flack for dedicating a “slow jam” to rival Boston Celtics’ player Kyrie Irving. This is the first time a James dedicated something to a Celtic since James Joyce wrote Dubliners.

Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth have now made their first public appearance as a married couple. You know what they say. First comes love, then comes marriage, then enters Luke Hemworth with lodging disparage.

Florida senator Marco Rubio told the press that he doesn’t know of anyone calling for American intervention in Venezuela. If you look at the polls, he also didn’t know of anyone that wanted him to be president, either.

Former New Jersey governor and presidential candidate Chris Christie told the press about the Roger Stone indictment, “If I had a nickel for every time I had a defendant tell me when I was U.S. attorney that something was out of context, I’d be a rich guy and I’m not.” Now, if he had a nickle every time he ate 30 chicken wings in 20 minutes at Touchdown’s, he would have his own country.

Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau fired his ambassador to China after a controversial comment made about Huawei CFO Meng Wanzhou. This is the biggest dissapointment engineered by a Canadian since Seth Rogen starred in The Green Hornet.

 

Canada, Chris Hansen, Ocasio-Cortez, Covington Catholic High School, Lakers

During the government shutdown in the US, the Canadian Air Traffic Control Association bought several pizzas for American government employees working in 36 different facilities without pay. While we’re sure they were doing it because both countries’ air traffic control associations have a strong bond, there is a little suspicion that they’re doing it to make up for the constant airplay of “In My Feelings” by Drake.

Former To Catch a Predator host Chris Hansen was arrested in Connecticut for failing to pay for marketing materials worth thousands of dollars. Stamford police are suspicious that he watched old episodes of Predator because he brought sub sandwiches and beer to the station.

New York lawmaker Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez came under scrutiny by Republicans for using an obscene phrase to explain how hard she’ll push progressive ideals in Congress. This was the first time a Democrat got in trouble for using crude language in the chambers since Bill Clinton stumbled into the House by accident at 3am on a Saturday with an intern.

Students from Covington Catholic High School in Kentucky disrupted The Indigenous Peoples’ March at the Lincoln Memorial. A diocese in Kentucky stated that they will investigate internally.

Birdbox, Cody Parkey, R. Kelly, Coming to America 2, Costco

A teenager in Utah hit another car trying the “Bird Box” challenge (named after the Netflix film starring Sandra Bullock) while driving. Police officers across the nation are worried about this hitting epidemic levels but are even more worried about kids blowing $30,000,000 in the Welcome to Marwen challenge.

101 people attempted Goose Island Beer Company’s field goal competition, rewarding the winner if they make the 43-yard field goal Bears kicker Cody Parkey missed. If there’s anything Bears fans learned from this experience, is that the one ingredient we need to gain empathy is alcohol.

R. Kelly’s estranged daughter released a statement denouncing her father. With an inevitable prison sentence, Chicago’s Cook County Prison has been building a recording studio for Kelly’s tentative release “Trapped with a Basehead.”

Paramount Pictures gave Craig Brewer the nod to direct the sequel to the 1988 Eddie Murphy hit film Coming to America. Kenya Barris is in the rewrites process with the screenplay and Arsenio Hall is in the refinancing process with his house.

Wholesaler Costco is now selling a 27-pound bucket of macaroni and cheese with a 20-year shelf life. You know what else they sell with a 20-year shelf life? Blu-ray copies of Welcome to Marwen.

Karate, Outback Steakhouse, Government Shutdown, Hilary Duff, NBA

A North Carolina sensei came to a woman’s rescue after she ran into his karate studio to avoid being kidnapped. When the story was released, rapper Travis Scott flew to his studio to avoid getting engaged to Kylie Jenner.

A Florida woman was charged with domestic battery and aggravated assault after attacking her parents when they refused to take her to faux-Australian restaurant Outback Steakhouse. The good things are her parents are 100% okay and the judge sentenced her to eat at Olive Garden for 2 weeks.
