Putin, Advent, Government Shutdown, Eagles, Dancing FBI Agent

Vladimir Putin called for a ban on rap music to prevent the “degradation” of Russia. I don’t think banning rap is the answer. Banning country is the answer. (It’s not degrading, I just don’t like it).

An English woman discovered that the advent calendar her daughter was eating out of didn’t contain chocolate but catnip. The mother was suspicious when her daughter started trying to knock the pencils out of her hand and constantly ran laps around the house at 3 in the morning.

The U.S. government shut down at midnight on December 22nd. The Democrats have collaborated on how to stop the shutdown and Pelosi suggested that they try unplugging it and plugging it in again.

Philadelphia Eagles head coach Doug Pederson assured the press that Carson Wentz is the team’s starting quarterback for the foreseeable future while Twentieth Century Fox assured that backup quarterback Nick Foles will star in the Napoleon Dynamite reboot.

The FBI agent whose gun went off while dancing at a bar in Denver has dodged jail time, which is unfortunate because the Denver County Jail just lost a performer scheduled to act in the prison’s rendition of White Christmas.

 

 

Jokes: Brexit, NFL, United Nations, Michael B. Jordan, Windmills

The UN’s environment chief resigned after it was revealed that he spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on travel expenses, much of it being environmentally unfriendly. Suspicions started when he was spotted in Brazil off-roading in his Humvee.

Officials in a modest Dutch town have complained that their trademark windmills have resulted in too much international attention. This just in: Iggy Azalea just purchased 20 windmills.

Washington Redskins quarterback Alex Smith injured his leg Sunday night playing against the Houston Texans. Nathan Peterman’s Monday morning e-mails were intercepted by a hacker 7 times.

The UK and EU are in the final stages of agreeing on a rough draft for post-Brexit relations. I looked at the rough draft. With a few fight scenes and a stronger B-story, I think it’ll be gametime ready.

On Wednesday, former pro football player and Bachelorette contestant Jordan Rodgers called out brother and NFL quarterback Aaron Rodgers for a lack of compassion for his family during the California wildfires even though he donated $1 million to the cause. Aaron is a MVP. Jordan is a MVB – Most Venomous Brother.

Seasoned boxer Roy Jones, Jr. officially accepted actor Michael B. Jordan’s challenge to fight him. Even though Jones, Jr. is no longer in his prime, he’s still a pro boxer. That would be like saying I could win a rap battle against Xhibit because he hasn’t been on the charts for a while. He’s still a pro rapper and I have no business rap battling anyone, to be honest.

5 Jokes: Trump, Deez Nuts, Tom Brady, Kim Jong-Un

A successful porn website released a Donald Trump parody. You thought the real Trump was hard on immigrants…

During the Chicago Bears’ pre-season game on Saturday, the team’s Twitter page put in the wrong handle for WR Jordan Bellamy, including the handle for an English guy with the same name. The Englishman should be glad this didn’t happen last year, because his special moment would have been overshadowed by Alshon Jeffrey of Ireland.

The South Korean defense department scrutinized its neighbor to the north, deeming their movement of submarines excessive. When I read the defense minister talking about North Korea “using 10 times more than normal” at first, I thought he was talking about Kim Jong-Un’s hair gel.

Ben Carson’s presidential campaign was rocked this past week when four campaign officials left his team. Just in case Ben sees this….Ben, I know you’re worried that you won’t win without some seasoned assistance. I have some good news! You’re not going to win this year but look at your competition. You could easily come in 3rd with some 16-year-old whose got a lot of free time this summer as your finance chairman.

Legislators in Maine have proposed banning powdered alcohol, which is like adult Tang. The only way to tell the difference between the two is how much more popular your kid is when they get home from school.

The Oprah Winfrey Network pulled Jay Williams’ reality show about his 34 children from 17 different women. The network is probably doing it to protect themselves from unwanted criticism this show could possibly produce. Hey, at least somebody’s using protection.
