New England Pats, Nicolas Cage, Ocasio-Cortez, New York Giants, Lady Gaga

New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman was fined for three unnecessary roughness calls during their game against division rivals the Buffalo Bills. Edelman defended himself by saying it was part of Bill Belichick’s new plan to secure the AFC East by being the only team in the AFC East.

Missouri senator Claire McCaskill called new incoming New York congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez “a bright, new, shiny object.” McCaskill has a history of name-calling in Congress, like calling Texas senator Ted Cruz “trite, blue, whiny,” and “abject.”

New York Giants wide receiver Jawill Davis injured his foot while dancing in the locker room. What caused this was either being traded to a contender or Morrissey just dropped a new album.

Lady Gaga has commenced her Las Vegas residency at the Park MGM. Her show includes an alien character she created. Best showstopping alter ego since Trump acting as his own publicist John Barron.

Former president Barack Obama posted a list of his favorite films for 2018. Like clockwork, it was just another snub for Nicolas Cage.

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: Ted Cruz, Marriott, Ivanka, Pro Football, Rob Schneider

Nine Inch Nails lead singer Trent Reznor harshly refused Texas senator Ted Cruz’s request to be on the guest list. The senator shouldn’t worry. There are plenty of Texan musicians who are dying to have someone on their guest list – Jessica Simpson, Ryan Cabrera, Ciara, Chamillionaire, and Lyle Lovett. If you’re on Lyle’s guest list, you get to sit in the nose bleeds.

Saturday Night Live alum Rob Schneider appeared on the hit podcast The Adam Carolla Show. I’m not sure what he was plugging, but he and Jason Mewes should be the new pitchmen for LinkedIn. Tagline? It’s About Who You Know.

Up to 500 million Marriott Hotel guests’ data has been breached. President Trump has an opportunity to expose Robert Mueller using his in-room purchases. Should a guy who has 4 Milky Ways in one night be leading special counsel?

President Trump’s daughter Ivanka claims that her e-mails are not similar to Secretary Clinton’s. She’s right. Hillary doesn’t get daily Thought Catalog listicles, Cosmo’s tips on “How to Keep Your Man,” and The Super Exclusive, Premium Ariana Grande updates overflowing her inbox.

The Alliance of American Football League had its quarterback draft this week. If you’re wondering about who plays in the AAF, think about it as a pool of players the Canadian Football League responded to with the grimace face emoji.

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.
