Theres a theory that someones name can have a great influence on what job they eventually do, for instance someone called Mr. Baker could end up making bread, Miss Brewer could be drawn to producing beer and Mr Dick could, in time, become a traffic warden. The theory is known as nominative determinism.
Oddly enough, the theory holds some water, as these 18 people show.
1. The firefighter
2. The neurologist
3. The lawyer
4. The water expert

Fans of Question Time on BBC are looking forward to the highly anticipated regeneration scene this festive period. David Dimbleby announced he was leaving the show earlier this year prompting rumours that The Chairman would become a female for the first time in the programmes history.
I am hoping this breathes some life into the format, stated Emma Jones, a devout Timevian from Cardiff. It has become ever so predictable since this Brexit storyline started a few years back. The writers keep trying to add drama by having people shout the will of the people, get on with it but it is becoming dull now, they badly need a new catchphrase. Also, the latest villain, Mrs May, is so unrealistic, why would so many people support someone so incompetent? It just wouldnt happen in real life!
Some fans are worried about what has happened to The Chairmans partners. Dan Smith from Chichester is concerned a regular has been written out. They introduced this Farage character a while back who appeared in quite a lot of episodes. Apparently he was integral to the Brexit storyline and some even say he was the origin of that storyline. I find it surprising he has been written out before we have a conclusion to it, though a mate from work reckons he is about to be brought back, I cant wait to see what mischievous nonsense he gets up to next.
The introduction of a female Chairman has not been without controversy, some fans have questioned the need for such a change in direction. Chris Johnson from Canterbury commented: The Chairman has always been a man, its political correctness gone mad. Next they will be doing stories about Rosa Parks and how Britain caused the partition of India, crazy!

Peter Dutton will not become Britains next Prime Minister after failing to realise how the countrys political system works. He received zero votes.
Mr Dutton earlier said he had the numbers to topple Prime Minister Theresa May, seemingly unaware of the fact that he is ineligible to run for British parliament. I have the majority support of the British Conservative Party, Mr Dutton said, before polling absolutely no votes.
Earlier, Senator Matthias Cormann threw his support behind Mr Dutton in bold a last-minute move that saw Mr Dutton receiving zero votes.
After careful consideration, and a meticulous analysis of the numbers, I have decided that Mr Dutton will be elected the next Prime Minister of Britain, Mr Cormann said before todays vote, in which Mr Dutton received zero of a possible 317 votes.
Despite the decisive defeat, Mr Dutton has not ruled out a future challenge.
South Australians are rejoicing at this weeks announcement that the new Australian Space Agency will be based there, providing much-needed hope of a faster way to escape Adelaide.
During the announcement Prime Minister Scott Morrison said he thought South Australians were already well prepared for long trips into space. Because of their lack of faith in coal they have already adapted to long periods of complete darkness, he said.
Adelaide residents interviewed by the (un)Australian denied wanting to abandon their city. Modbury resident Lyn Crochet said, Most of us only want to be out of town between the chequered flag of the Adelaide 500 Supercars in March and the opening night of the Adelaide Fringe Festival the following February. An absence of just 11 months per year.
Not everyone is happy the new space agency will be based in Adelaide. While South Australia is already home to innovative satellite start-ups that are helping farmers and oceanographers world-wide, other states have complained that their own world-changing applications of space technology were overlooked by the selection panel.

TUCSON, Ariz. Local music critic and Spotify free user Jill Nesbitt named Get in the Zone Autozone as the best song of 2018 on her first year-end list since using the streaming service, sources close to the frugal woman confirmed.
When I first heard the song, I just thought it was really annoying, said Nesbitt, who surprised even herself crowning the four-second song as the best of 2018. But after I heard it roughly 2,360 times, it started to grow on me when I caught myself singing along, I realized it was really just a perfect pop song: short, simple, catchy, and empowering.
I will get in the zone, added Nesbitt. I do it all the time. And once Im there, I never want to leave.
Despite the honor, the people behind the song seemed unaffected.
Yeah, our commercials have always been a big part of our business. So I guess its pretty cool someone enjoyed the jingle, said Autozone communications liaison Curtis Warren. But, hey while youre here, can I tell you about our winter tire sale? Buy three tires and get the fourth free! Any brand, any size.
They also come with a six year warranty, and can handle whatever conditions Mother Nature throws at them, added Warren.
Unfortunately, Leora Englehardt, the songwriter behind highly rated Get in the Zone Autozone jingle, also seemed underwhelmed by the distinction.
Dont get me wrong: I appreciate any and all forms of support, said Englehardt. But that song took me about four minutes to write. I spent the past three years working on a solo album I released this year, but nobody seems to give a shit. Couldnt she pick a song off of that to at least make her top 10? Feel free to pass my name along to her so she can check it out.
Following the announcement, Nesbitt teased the release of her Best Films of 2018 list. While the author has proven her capacity for a shocking upset, most expect the Peloton commercials from Hulu to nab the top prize.

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa A YouTube Lets Play video of Hollow Knight, being used for the purposes of consultation and education, was revealed to feature a running audio commentary from its author, a detail that the viewer in question described as really fucking annoying.
Hey guys! Welcome to part six of my Hollow Knight walkthrough! began YouTuber user Drawn_this_Way, shortly before the video was muted. Look at these bugs in this game. I feel like Im in a New York City apartment. Oh shit, am I like gonna have to fight this guy? He looks like a butt bug.
YouTube viewer Vic Fredfield was reportedly disappointed to learn that the video he had selected arbitrarily from the field of search results not only wasnt the intended chapter of gameplay he had been seeking guidance on, but also featured a man seemingly devoid of any actual sense of humor doing a series of voices and noises.
I was trying to figure out where I had lost my way, so I found a video with a lot of views, said Fredfield. And I was pretty bummed to realize it was one with talking. Are people watching this tit for his commentary? And if they are, why does he stop for minutes at a time when hes stuck on something? This game has a wonderful soundtrack, why do I have to listen to this nerd bend over backwards on top of it?
Finding similar predicaments with several other walkthroughs uploaded by different YouTube users, Fredfield eventually returned the first video he had found.
Every goddamn one of these has talking, he reported. So whatever. At least this guy has his mic settings figured out. Ill just mute it and try to find the video that shows the part Im at.
The popular YouTube content creator received the news of his audio dismissal with hurt feelings and a plea for his alienated audience member.
He muted me? Aw man! said Drawn_this_Way, upon being informed. Are you still in touch with him? Would you ask him to like and subscribe please?
Prime Minister Theresa May today ran into trouble with the process of exiting her car, despite having assured people that it would be a simple process everyone would be happy with.
Finding her own door wouldnt open, she asked travelling companion Arlene Foster if shed mind letting her out on her side. Unfortunately, Foster made several unreasonable demands in return for her help, insisting that the car should belong to her from now on, but with Sinn Fein paying for petrol, road tax and insurance.
May then sought help from an EU official standing on the pavement, but he replied that the backstop arrangement whereby he used the doors exterior handle could only be triggered at a time of the EUs choosing.
She finally turned to Dave the chauffeur, who said that she couldnt blame him because it was only his job to driver her to the meeting Mrs Merkel, no to service th car, before adding: Though to be honest, the problem might be some paint got in the locks when my mate Boris was graffiting some random numbers on the side.
BERKELEY, Calif. Bay Area punk band The Guts have released their most influential material since their inception 10 years ago: an online review of El Rey Tacos in Los Angeles, longtime supporters of the band confirmed.
Im not saying their music isnt important to me, said self-proclaimed #1 Guts fan Brendon Walters, who ranked the Yelp review higher than the bands multiple studio albums. But through their five-star review for El Rey, I learned they had the best carne asada nachos in southern California and their wish dishes can be made vegan. I mean, it changed my life forever I have a wedding in L.A. next month, so this saves me a lot of Googling.
Guts fans and casual Yelp users alike claimed they would never have eaten at the small restaurant had the band not collectively reviewed the insanely good al pastor tacos, ample parking, and 24-hour service.
A bunch of kids came up to tell me how much the chicharron meant to them I thought it was an early song of ours I forgot about, said Guts guitarist Mike Davis. Finally, someone complimented the sample platter and I figured out what was going on. I guess I should be touched we affected so many lives but I was kinda hoping it would be through our music.
For their part, the owners of El Rey Tacos expressed their appreciation for the bands work.
The Guts literally saved my life, owner and head cook Carlos Garcia said with tears in his eyes. We were two weeks away from having to close when they posted that review. All of a sudden, all these punk kids started coming out. I can finally pay for my mothers dialysis.
Following their groundbreaking work, rumors are swirling that the Guts are working on a follow-up review of a yet-unnamed all-day breakfast spot in San Francisco.

Writer and historian Robert Saunders went viral today with this (brief) thread about tonights Tory party vote of no confidence in Theresa May.
People shared it because of what it says about the (lack of) democracy in the country we live in right now.
Heres what Saunders, who teaches history at Queen Mary University of London, had to say.
If Theresa May falls tonight, the leadership contest that follows will be one of the most important elections in British history. It will also be one of the least democratic. We are about to discover how much damage the two main parties have done to our democracy. [THREAD]
Robert Saunders (@redhistorian) December 12, 2018
2. At a critical moment in British history, the UK will have its first directly elected prime minister. They will be placed in Number Ten, not by Parliament, not by the electorate, but by Conservative party members: a privileged class of voters who have paid for the privilege.
Robert Saunders (@redhistorian) December 12, 2018
3. Not since the days of the rotten boroughs have a few thousand people held such extraordinary, undemocratic power. Unlike MPs, activists are not answerable to a wider public. We dont know who they are. They vote in secret. We cannot hold them to account for their choices.
Robert Saunders (@redhistorian) December 12, 2018
4. That leadership election will not be a personality contest: it will be fought on fundamental questions of policy. Do we leave with no deal? Do we suspend Article 50? Do we have a second referendum? It will set the direction of government for as long as the govt is in power.
Robert Saunders (@redhistorian) December 12, 2018

It's at times like this that I really wish I did get irony....
In a last minute fevered negotiations the entire Brexit debate has been resolved. The EU has renamed itself The European Community, therefore the 1975 membership referendum can be invoked and Britain will now remain a full member in keeping with the wishes of those who voted at that time.
It turned out to be the simplest solution, although it does mean changing the headed notepaper, said EC President Donald Tusk. People obviously didnt mind being in the EC but hated being in the EU, well its only one letter so no ones going to lose any sleep over that.
Boris Johnson who has been vilified for dishonest claims during the now entirely irrelevant 2016 referendum campaign welcomed the solution: For many years Ive embraced/hated the EU but always liked the EC, so this is such a good solution for Britain and by Britain, I of course mean me, as after a few weeks I will stop getting the blame for this whole bloody Brexit balls-up.
Theresa May will face a vote of no confidence from her own MPs today with the result expected at around 9pm tonight.
The so-called prime minister said she would contest that vote with everything I have got.
This is what Jacob Rees-Mogg, one of the prime movers against her, had to say today.

An industry survey has revealed that almost half of prospective buyers believe it will take them seven years or more to raise the deposit they need to purchase a season ticket allowing them to travel to work by train.
In the current economic climate, how anyone can expect me to raise 4,360 to travel into London for the year is beyond me, said Sally Dyson of Stevenage. I got a mortgage for my home but no one seems prepared to lend me the money I need to get to work. Until the banks start lending again people like me cant even hope to get on the season ticket ladder.
Those that have managed to secure loans for season tickets say it was a rigorous process. It took a long time to persuade a bank that lending me the money to get from Orpington to London Victoria was a wise investment, said Darren Tulley. They did a full credit check and wanted to see a years worth of payslips and bank statements. In the end they only agreed when I put my house up as collateral.
But for many moving from renting a monthly return to owning an annual season ticket remains only a dream. My dad left me his old season ticket to use as equity, but it was on the market for nine months and I didnt even have one viewer, complained Mark Costa of Colchester in Essex. In the end I had to walk to work. I set off first thing Monday and got to London by Wednesday morning, but by the time Id opened a few emails it was time to leave again for the weekend. Luckily now its a much shorter commute to the Jobcentre.
While season ticket price increases have been limited this year, rail companies insist that train tickets remain a sound investment. Its still a buyers market, said Michael Roberts, chief executive of the Association of Train Operating Companies. Just look at the off-peak returns we sold in 2011 if we were selling them today theyd fetch at least 20% more.
It started when someone called @MotherofDoggons on Twitter shared a really stupid thing she did as a kid and asked people to tell her theirs.

A woman was in a taxi on the way to the airport when she received an email from her husband to say he wasnt happy.
Specifically, he wasnt happy because he reckoned they hadnt had enough sex in the previous few weeks.
And it had obviously been weighing on his mind because he did this.
Heres what the 26-year-old woman (the same age as her husband) had to say after she shared the spreadsheet on Reddit.
Yesterday morning, while in a taxi on the way to the airport, Husband sends a message to my work email which is connected to my phone. Hes never done this, we always communicate in person or by text. I open it up, and its a sarcastic diatribe basically saying he wont miss me for the 10 days Im gone.
Attached is a SPREADSHEET of all the times he has tried to initiate sex since June 1st, with a column for my excuses, using verbatim quotes of why I didnt feel like having sex at that very moment. According to his document, weve only had sex 3 times in the last 7 weeks, out of 27 attempts on his part.
This is a side of him I have never seen before bitter, immature, full of hatred. In person, hed been acting normal the whole time, maybe a little s...
Its not easy giving stuff away for free.
Very often the person who agrees to take it doesnt turn up on time, or attaches all sorts of conditions and you end up just wanting to re-advertise it but you dont because you dont want to cause offence.

Crossrail CEO Mark Wild has explained that the extra time and money needed to complete the project is due to the fact that the stations are much further apart than he realised.
I can only say that I was given poor information at the outset, said the embattled CEO today. The way it was presented it to me, the whole thing would fit on the top of a decent sized conference table. Naturally I was happy to announce wed get the thing done in a few months on a shoestring budget.
I now understand that this was something called a scale model which, whilst preserving the relative distances, does not show the actual size of the finished article. I must say, I did wonder what the point of building such a small railway was, when you could walk from one end to the other in a few seconds And whod fit in those little trains anyway? Still, ours not to reason why and all that.
The cabinet minister responsible for appointing Wild to run the project has dismissed claims he wasnt sufficiently vetted to check whether he had suitable experience or even basic intelligence.
Absolute nonsense, hes a terribly able sort of chap, no doubt about it. And I should know, since hes my brother.
Meanwhile, designers working on station signage have asked whether its likely to be finished during the reign of King Charles III, or should they start calling it the William Line just to be on the safe side.

I sit silently in my self-built blind, made of mud and twigs; the forest is silent save for the gentle click of the rain on tree leaves. This isnt my first time spending the night in Wallowa-Whitman National Forest in an attempt to spy the legendary bigfoot. It is night like this, when the moon is full and my heart sings for discovery, that I realize I should have gone to trade school like my father suggested.
I am 45 years-old, unwed, no children, and a laughing stock among my relative because thirty years ago I saw something outside my cabin I could not explain. In hindsight, it was most likely that serial killer they never caught. But instead, I convinced myself to abandon society in pursuit of the North American Yeti.
I have dug through countless piles of suspected Sasquatch shit only to discover it is the crap of a bear or a wolf. I carry with my an obvious odor of scat that will never wash away and if a child doesnt point & laugh at me, then he will hide in fright.
The mystery that is bigger than the beast himself is how the group of Squatchers I hang out with all managed to shoot themselves in the foot with their hunting rifles on the same camping trip.
I have set up hundreds of night-vision trap cameras in these woods and the only thing I have ever captured is the haunting reflection of my own aged face in the darkness. When I bark Sasquatch calls into the night the only response I get is my echoing loneliness.
Honestly, this isnt about if Bigfoot does or does not exist. This is about the fact that I could have been a great baker or helped the needy but instead I pick, bag and tag random hairs that always turn out to be dog hairs. Always.

Millions of Australians still waiting to opt out of the My Health scheme have been supplied with digital copies of 20 year old National Geographics and Gourmet Traveller Magazines to keep them occupied.
I got online about forty minutes ago and Im pretty sure that some guy who got online twenty minutes after me managed to opt out first, but never mind because Ive become engrossed with this issue of Time magazine from 1993, said citizen Mike Schubert. I hope that President Clinton can do something about the situation in Bosnia or that could turn ugly.
Damn it, someones ripped out the entire article about new layout of St Andrews from this germ filled 2003 issue of Golf Digest, said disappointed queuer Rita Busby. At least the kids are happy playing with that wooden and plastic toy where you move the beads along a loopy wire.

A study out of Park High School in central Indiana shows that 9 out of 10 teens splitting a case of Coors stolen from Gregs old man on the 50 yard-line of the of their soon to be almamaters football field claim that this is the greatest night of their life.
The study is a sample of ten suburban graduating seniors all heading off to college in the fall. All of whom are certain that they dont know what the future has in store and that everything is changing.
The lone 10% holdout of the study, one Justin Raymond, reports that while drinking on the hood of a 1972 Ford Bronco is one of the greatest nights of his life, he believes he is meant for bigger and better things and will get out of this town one day.
While many analysts in the field believed that prom or even Tommy Boom Boom Brennans house party would have been identified as the greatest night of their life, researchers were stunned to discover that tossing a football around under the stars with a group of friends that may never be together again after tonight won out.
Additionally, the study participants came to a consensus that the song Last Shot by country singer Kip Moore is their official anthem and, no matter where they are, if they hear that song they will do a shot in memory of that night.
In a similar longitudinal study with the graduating class of 1998, the now almost 40-year-olds report that not only was that still the greatest night of their life but that they wished they could have frozen time and let that night last forever.
The study went onto explain that the average wait time for one group of friends to finish reminiscing on the football field before another can take its place is approximately 1.3 hours. Researchers suggest using the town reservoir as a suitable substitute.

AKRON, Ohio Local gamer Tim Gilbert is facing criticism from his friend group for focusing on his career and personal life rather than honing his skills as an Operator in Tom Clancys Rainbow Six Siege, a move sources say could threaten Gilberts standing within the group.
Tims a great guy and all, but hes been pulling this kind of stuff ever since high school, said Jacob Hicks, a longtime friend of Gilbert and current employee at a local Burger King. While we were all doing WoW raids, he was busy with his AP Calculus test and part-time job. Its like, dude, the Horde needs you right now!
The three other friends, including Hicks, Wade Turner, and a third gentleman who goes by Sticky Steve due to an unprintable incident that occurred during middle school, share an apartment and a 1999 Toyota Camry sedan between them. According to those familiar with the situation, the trio has considered replacing Gilbert with someone who has more free time to dedicate to gaming.
Tims been so busy with his fancy job, 401k, health insurance, and generally productive life, that hes barely ever around to play with us anymore, said Turner, while heating up some Easy Mac. And even when he does, he really fucking sucks. We have to cover for him like he does for us when we all go out to eat and only he can afford to pay the check.
While the squad works on their breaching techniques, Gilbert has been preparing for his upcoming wedding, in an unprecedented betrayal of the groups usual night to play squad games online.

As the Voyager 2 probe became only the second man-made object to leave the solar system for the dark, cold, expanse of deep space, following its sister craft Voyager 1, NASA scientists were taken aback when the two probes started communicating with each other; something neither craft was programmed to do. Once the faint digital message had been decoded, NASA engineers explained that Voyager 2 said to Voyager 1: Hey, dude, we were lucky to get this far out when we could, theyve all gone fucking ballistic back at base. Man, just keep going, its shit back there.
Given the probes present location, some 18 billion km (11 billion miles) from Earth, scientists were surprised at the clarity of the message. Both Voyager craft were launched 16 days apart in 1977; the year Jimmy Carter became president, and Queen Elizabeth II celebrated her Silver Jubilee.
The message from Voyager 1 continued: Apparently Carter and the Queen are still around, which is cool, but Elvis is dead and theres some moronic airheaded jerk in the White House. The UK seems set on some form of crazy national suicide, and the planets climate is fucked; its so bad they wont even listen to David Attenborough any more!
FORT COLLINS, Colo. Tortured Metaphor merch guy and badass road-warrior Todd Sanderson was quite clear last night that he has no authority whatsoever to give you a discount on a $25 T-shirt, and likely wouldnt, even if he could, witnesses confirmed.
The band needs money from T-shirts so they can put gas in the van and drive to the next city, Sanderson said when reached for comment. The line was backing up to four fucking people deep while I tried to explain the basic tenets of economics to that kid. The shirt is $25 that isnt out of the ordinary.
Security footage confirmed that none your constant pleading, fit throwing, subtle flirting, overt flirting, drug offers, aggressive winking, or shameless crying weakened Sandersons resolve, as the merch-slinger remained cross-armed, stone-faced, and unimpressed.
Ive seen it all at this point, said Sanderson. If I came down to where you worked and cried in your face, would you give me a discount? For the sake of the people who hired you, I sure as hell hope not.
Jason Bustamante, a longtime professional roadie and highly regarded merch expert, empathized with Sandersons uncomfortable situation.
Oh, yeah Ive heard some creative demands for discounts over the years, he said. People claim they left their cash in their other shoe, or the plasma center wont let them donate more than once a month, or some shit like that. One time, a guy told me he couldnt pay full price because the drugs he planned to sell at the show ended up being fake. Its like, Thats great, but it doesnt change the price of a shirt, dude.
Witnesses reported they could see Sanderson grow more impatient about your bullshit by the moment.
I thought the merch guy was going to hop over the table and start throwing elbows, to be honest, said Tortured Metaphor fan Taylor Switzer. When I overheard [you] say, I need this money to buy three more drinks, and I have the bands faces tattooed on my ass, I knew things were bubbling over. Thankfully, some really sweaty guy cut in front of everyone and bought a 7 to diffuse everything.

Remainers may be dancing in the streets and decorating their homes with EU-approved bunting; yet the news that the UK can unilaterally cancel Brexit, has been greeted by a universal meh from Leave Voters. The ECJs ruling carries as much sway with your average Brexiteer, as does the opinions of Jean-Claude Van Damme, the taste of currywurst or the third verse of La Marseillaise.
Commented one Brexiteer: Ignoring the ECJ was my main reason for voting in the first place. Like with horoscopes, Banksy and Celebrity Love-Island Im just not interested. On the list of things I dont care about, its right there at the top just ahead of greek yoghurt.
Unfortunately the ECJ is as relevant to Leave voters, as is a pot of marmalade is to NASAs Mission to Mars. At best, the ECJ speaking out on Brexit is like having your ex-boyfriend insist on cutting your fringe with nail-scissors.
Brexiteers have naturally responded with a measured and dignified fingers in the ears, following by an obligatory blah, blah, blah, Im not listening. Said the one voter: Taking back control, means never having to say youre sorry.
A gag about Donald Trump has come top of a competition to come up with the best new modern Christmas cracker joke.
Theresa May, Boris Johnson, Love Island and Harry and Meghans wedding also featured among the favourite topical cracker gags in the annual competition run by TV channel Gold.
The good people of Gold challenged people to come up with the finest modern Christmas cracker jokes, which were then voted for by the British public.
And here are the top 15 (youll have to make your own bang sound though).
What does Donald Trump do after he pulls a cracker? Pays her off
Why is Theresa May encouraging board games at Christmas? Because shes trying to bring back Chequers
Why has Debenhams been forced to cancel its Christmas nativity play? No prophet
What does Philip Green buy former employees for Christmas? Their silence
When do sheep practice their new dance? While shepherds watched them floss by night
Whats the difference between the Love Island villa and the stable where Jesus was born? The stable has had some wise men in it
Why does Kim Kardashian hate Christmas so much? Shes always the butt of the Christmas cracker jokes
What is Meghan buying Harry, William and Charles for Christmas? Suits
Why was everyone hungover after Roxanne Palletts Christmas Party? She misjudged the strength of the punch
Why did Donald Trump invite Kanye West round to help with his Christmas presents? Because Kanye is Trumps favourite wrapper
Whats the biggest complaint about Network Rails Christmas seasoning? They keep changing the thyme
Why has Boris Johnson bought mistletoe this year? Because hes tired of being in the single market
Whats the only thing that goes on longer than Christmas? Harry and Meghans wedding preacher
What did Banksy serve with his Christmas turkey? Shred sauce
Who won the North Pole Love Island? Dani Deer

This years Sports Personality of the Year show will trial a new banter testing system, the BBC announced today. The news comes amidst growing fears that athletes from popular, clubby sports have been able to unfairly game the system for many years by using in-jokes and slight innuendo with the presenters, thought to be worth at least 50,000 extra votes on the night over athletes from more marginal sports.
We want to level the playing field, said a BBC spokesperson today. We know that its always funny seeing Lennox Lewis goof around with Andy Murray, and who couldnt raise a smile as Claire Balding makes a quip with Lewis Hamilton about his tax arrangements. But its got out of hand. The womens cricket team have won just about everything over recent years and all they usually get is just 30 seconds with Sue Barker and one of those slo-mo montages with the Welsh guy reciting an old poem over it.
Jokey exchanges on the show remain at an all time high, with presenters and sports personalities seemingly always at least two anecdotes ahead of the testers. In one forced exchange between Gary Lineker and the England rugby team last year, banter levels were found to be 10 times the recommended broadcast maximum. Samples of every interview done by John Inverdale are also currently being retrospectively tested, after high levels of a hard-to-spot reference to a public school tradition were found in one of his set piece comedy interludes with the England mens cricket team during rehearsals of the show.
With Murray serving a one year ban for dangerous levels of gags about his wife and mother in last years show, testers are thought to be focusing in on Chris Froome, who, to date, has registered a zero reading on every banter test he has ever taken. The suspicion is that hes using high levels of natural ability and a somewhat deadpan delivery as a masking agent for heavily scripted punchlines., said one tester today. But we feel its just a matter of time before he lets his guard down and gives a well timed riposte to one of Gabby Logans questions about chafing after 3 weeks in the saddle.
Greeting card company Hallmark has released a range of festive cards that replace the word Christmas with Holiday just to get on Conservative Australia Party leader Cory Bernardis tits.
The company doesnt expect to sell any of the cards including versions that say We Wish You A Merry Holiday Season and Have Yourself A Merry Little Holiday Season but says it was worth the investment to see Mr Bernardi totally lose his mind.
We know no-one actually says Happy Holidays in Australia, but we heard it would drive Cory Bernardi absolutely fucking insane, so we thought it was worth it, a spokesperson for the company said.
Mr Bernardi has responded with a YouTube video, parliamentary submission, 14-page brochure and an upcoming television commercial to criticise the cards.

Fred Cummins is facing the most difficult week of his very public divorce this week. Two years ago, Fred took the unusual step to announce his intention to finish his marriage by means of a public vote instead of using the courts. I felt that the man and woman in the street knew more about relationships than any judge, he said at the time. The vote took the public imagination, with 52% of those who voted agreeing he should divorce.
Shortly after the vote, Fred disappeared to follow up other interests and handed the final negotiations to his Sister-in-Law Maureen who has doggedly carried on with the divorce despite vocally supporting her sister in voting stay. Divorce means divorce has become a mantra for Maureen as she has tried to implement a number of requests from Fred over the last two years, including maintaining the right to cohabit the family home whenever he wants, keep access to Sky Sports and unlimited access to the larder and the conjugal bed on occasions. Fred is adamant that he shouldnt have to accept visits from his former in-laws, though, or their friends unless theyre hot.
The sticky subject of maintenance has stalled the process, though. Fred didnt want to pay any initially, then agreed to pay a one-off lump sum that still hasnt been agreed, but has finally suggested through Maureen that maintenance could continue for a couple of years or so as long as a long running dispute over his neighbours boundary can be resolved. Hes used to popping over to Lisas house for a quickie for years and doesnt want to see a hard border, explained Maureen.
The problem has now reached an impasse with chaos and confusion reigning despite the matter having been referred to a local solicitor who made recommendations; however, the dispute is now inflamed because it looks like he didnt disclose the final sentence of his advice to the Marital Court which subsequently has been revealed to include the phrase total crock of shit.

Minister for the Dark Arts Peter Dutton has strenuously denied being the one armed man that killed The Fugitive Dr Richard Kimbles wife in the early 90s movie.
These claims are baseless, sure I currently do have one arm due to an injury and yes I was in the area when the crime occurred but so were a lot of people, said Minister Dutton. I mean why is no one hassling immigrants or Bill Shorten.
In fact Ill be amazed if it wasnt Bill Shorten after all he is the reason for everything that has gone wrong in Australia since we have been in Government. Go hassle him.
When pressed on why he sought to blame Bill Shorten for his problems Minister Dutton replied: Its always other peoples fault that my plans for world domination get thwarted. I mean I would have been Australias supreme leader had Matthias Cormann not stuffed up the numbers.

Point: We must build an anti-Westminster movement in
by Anthony Jones, writer at The Lever
As the economic crisis deepens, Europe is particularly gripped by contradictions between various imperialist powers. This is most saliently felt in the Brexit regime which has pitted sections of the British ruling classes against their French and German counterparts. However, we in Britain are still living through the contradictions of capitalism-imperialism headed by Westminster, and in particular, the national contradictions within Britain which have the potential to splinter the UK as the EU is being splintered.
Naturally, I am referring to the potential of rising Scottish and Welsh nationalism to weaken Westminster imperialism and the English bourgeoisie, but it is very important that we understand how the English bourgeoisie is actually ruling Britain under the guise of not doing so. Through cultural soft power and economic and military hard power, the English ruling classes whose seat of power is Westminster attempt to convince all the peoples of this island of a shared political identity as British. This lie must be exposed not only by the Welsh and Scottish proletariats who can carry the struggle against imperialism beyond the weak pos...

VISTA, Calif. The discovery of a 19th use for Dr. Bronners All-One hemp castile soap has members of the company going absolutely mad with power, concerned sources report.
I was bringing in a shipment of rose oil when I heard this insane, maniacal laughter coming from the office, said visibly shaken warehouse manager Karina Holmes, smoking a hand-rolled cigarette. It was something about 19 uses yes, yes! and Absolute cleanliness is absolute godliness and I, the King of Soap! Kind of weird for a Tuesday.
When reached for comment, Dr. Bronners CEO David Bronner confirmed suspicions.
Theyll do whatever I tell them! he yelled from behind a closed and locked door. Ive got them washing floors with shampoo, the fools!
Additional members of the Bronner family, however, are struggling to deal with the total meltdown from updating the iconic packaging to include a 19th way to use the soap which, for over 50 years, included only 18 suggested uses.
Do you know how small we have to make that font on the label to make room for a 19th use? said Bronners wife and company co-president Kathy Bronner. I casually suggested we cut some of the random Bible references, but he just kept whispering, All-one, Kath, All-one, with this unnerving grin Id never seen before.
Phil Banjo Man Lyle, a cashier at the Prickly Pear Cooperative, found additional, unexpected issues from the change after a man believed to be David Bronner himself burst into the store and dramatically swept all bottles of his product off the shelf, claiming they were now obsolete.
He was wearing a burlap mask, but we all knew it was Bronner because of the intense peppermint smell, Lyle said when reached for comment. He was ranting about how he hath bequeathed us a 19th use for our mortal needs or whatever. When I was clocking out, he was still reciting poetry near the pastry aisle.
When asked what, exactly, was the revolutionary 19th use, Lyle could only guess.
I think he might have said, like, Safe for washing your horse, or something. Or maybe thats already on there, he said. I dont know. Ive actually never read the label. Its just soap.

Like me, youve probably been told that millennials are too busy vaping, eating ass, and razing entire industries to the ground and salting the earth to become wealthy. But in reality, you can become a raging success just like I did: by adopting the looks and habits of the wealthy, and also stealing their identities.
I want to really hammer home that last part. Its pretty crucial.
I wont lie, it takes hard work to follow my path to prosperity. You cant just make a LinkedIn profile and sit on your ass. You have to be willing to invest your time, effort, and emotions 100% into improving your life, Talented Mr. Ripley-style. And also it helps to get a job where you have access to high-end shoppers credit card information. Thats most of it.
To start, youll need to single out the wealthy person whose life youre about to invade and take over. It helps if they already look a lot like you but if they dont its not a deal-breaker. One easy workaround is hiding out on your yacht in Ibiza for a few months, then re-emerging and telling all your new loved ones you had major cosmetic surgery. Rich people are always doing eccentric shit like that and they hate being uninformed, so theyll play along until they die even if they dont believe you.
After you find your mark, I mean mentor, youll need to get close enough to them to start studying the traits that make them successful: work habits, time management skills, personality quirks, social security number, etc. Things like that. Networking will make a huge difference- like how I used my social media know-how to track down various venture capitalists and real estate moguls on Instagram and follow them around when theyre on vacation, at work, and in the gym.
So now that youve shadowed your walking embodiment of success, internalized their confidence, drive, and all their usernames and passwords, whats next?
Ideally by this time, youve become a trusted inner confidant of theirs, while simultaneously remaining unnoticed by their family, most of their friends, and the authorities. Before you start raking in the big bucks, youll have to get rid of them. As my wealthy target used to say whenever Forbes profiled him, Competition is great for business, especially if you eliminate the competition. What a brilliant man!
One of the first traits I picked up from my successful idol was a ruthless business acumen. Thanks to the invaluable lessons I learned, it took little effort on my part to sail far out to sea and throw the weighted body overboard. In next to no time, I was everything my parents ever wanted for me and more: a guy with a Tesla, thriving businesses, several disowned children from extramarital affairs, and no more worries.

MILWAUKEE, Wisc. Local mother and new addition to the Twitter community Eileen Sommer reportedly announced to her family today, We stan a legend, your father.
Stan, an endearing phrase used to describe when someone idolizes the content or personality of an entertainer originates from the Eminem song Stan and is generally not used when discussing spouses.
I think your father makes great content on the reg, such as the lovely homecooked meal you are all currently eating, so yes I am serious when I say that, in this household, we stan a legend, Sommer explained to her children, as they rolled their eyes. Now that Im a Twitter [sic], Im just trying to get into all the new lingo!
I would even go as far as to say I stan a queer icon, based on some experiences your father had before he met me when Sommer continued, before being interrupted by her daughter saying, Jesus, mom.
According to close sources, Sommer even printed out a photo of the Distracted Boyfriend Meme with the woman in red labeled as Your dad, the boyfriend labeled as Mom, and the girlfriend left completely blank.
I remember when I first met your father, you know. I didnt use these words, but I essentially felt like OMG Im screaming! Sommer said next, waving her arms around. Zendaya wasnt meechee back then, of course, but things really werent that different. Every day I pray that your father is never cancelled.
At press time, Eileen Sommer told reporters that she had just received her first follower.

ATHENS, Ga. Local uninsured and ailing man Jordan Cohen announced today that he will just give it a few more days before seeking any medical treatment, according to sources close to the invalid.
Yeah its just a bruise. Whatever, said Cohen, examining his now multi-colored mosh pit injury between desperate gasps for breath. Ive had plenty of pit injuries before. Im sure my ribs have always made that clicking sound when I breathe in too deep Ive just never noticed until now.
Cohen admitted hes been bedridden for three days, and cant stand for longer than two minutes before intense abdominal pain leaves him curled in a fetal position on the floor, begging for the sweet release of death.
I went to a show recently and collided with a guy in the pit, and he broke his arm. Like, his fucking bone was sticking out, claimed Cohen. That guy needed to go to the doctor. But me? I just had to lie down and try to breathe for a while. Sure, Ive been coughing up blood, but who hasnt been there? This will clear up by the weekend.
Gabby OBrien, Cohens longtime girlfriend, privately expressed her concerns.
Jordan hasnt slept more than an hour a night since the injury, and he passes out from the pain every time he sneezes. Next time he blacks out, I might just put him in the car and bring him to the emergency room, said OBrien while mapping out the quickest route to the hospital. He thinks doctors are for pussies, but if his fever gets any worse, I dont think hell have a chance to recover.
Cohens roommate has allegedly also attempted to persuade Cohen to no avail.
I cant even get him to take ibuprofen because he saw some article on Facebook saying itll tear up your stomach lining and he doesnt want to jeopardize his health, said Thomas Groth. I get it, though I turned 26 last year, and had to get off my moms health insurance, so youve gotta just try to be better to yourself until you can find a good job or something. Nowadays, I try to only have two drinks a night thats why I switched to drinking 40s.
At press time, Cohen remained optimistic.
Ill just see how it feels over the next few days, I guess. As long as the bruise doesnt get any bigger, I think Ill be fine. Its like the opposite of that mole I have on my shoulder that things been growing for years, but hasnt caused me any trouble.

The government has announced that it will be compulsory to put a warning label on any news story that contains a photograph of a spider to protect the sensibilities of sooky arachnophobes.
We are introducing the SP warning to go alongside similar warning for violence, adult themes and explicit sexual content to stop big wussy lilies who are scared of spiders from wetting themselves should they accidentally click on a link that leads them to a big hairy tarantula, said Constance Chatterley from the Office of Film and Literature Classification. It doesnt matter what type of spider, the legislation covers everything from daddy long legses to those little ones that make webs on your cars side mirrors and are small enough to crawl into your head through your ear and lay their eggs in your brain.
The new law has been welcomed by dainty spider haters, many of whom are unable to take a relaxing browse through the morning news over a cup of coffee through fear of accidentally stumbling upon a story about venom milking or the discovery of a new species of bird eating spider in the Costa Rican rainforest.

While Todd Erickson may seem like a mild mannered middle-aged man at first glance, this is simply a cover up to hide the fact that he is none other than the crime fighter knows as Batman. How do we know? Both his parents are both dead.
I got a chance to sit down with Erickson, who is 43, at his apartment in the Milwaukee suburbs. Much like the Batcave from the comics, Todds apartment is dimly lit and even has a hard to find entrance!
My mom died a few weeks ago after a long battle with cancer, and my dad died about five years ago from a sudden heart attack, said the real life Dark Knight. Howd you get in here?
Im glad hes on our side!
Erickson has even done his fair share of crime fighting! I was lucky enough to hear one of his harrowing stories from the streets while I drank from a dented can of orange crush he had given me from his empty fridge.
Yeah this one time my neighbors dog ran away, said the Caped Crusader. She posted about it on Facebook and I shared the post.
Erickson isnt just a flesh and blood copy of the worlds greatest detective either. Much like Batmans alter ego Bruce Wayne, Erickson also moonlights as a bit of a playboy.
I have been getting into cryptocurrencies lately. Theyve been going through a bit of a dry spot, but I really think theyre the future of finance, said the Silent Protector.

Meeting Erickson was an experience Ill never forget. Now I can sleep a little better at night knowing that there are heroes like him watching over us.
I am so goddamn sick of seeing fake gatekeepers on the internet telling people they arent real fans of something, because they are gatekeeping all WRONG.
I have been a REAL gatekeeper my entire life. I understand what it is like to have grown up as a gatekeeper, keeping a watchful eye on nerd and geek culture (if you dont know the difference, you shouldnt even be gatekeeping in the first place). I have worked my ass off to get to where I am as a gatekeeper and it is a major part of my identity, so dont you dare show up to my internet neighborhood and try to gatekeep other people unless you actually deserve to.
I will admit, its tricky to distinguish. I bet
youre all expecting some wonderful guide that easily breaks down
the fundamental steps to proper gatekeeping. Wouldnt that be nice?
An easy way to know who is a real gatekeeper?
Well the world doesnt fucking work that way. The only way to tell the difference is to be a true gatekeeper and to feel it in your gut OR to listen to me. Because when I see someone online chastising some fake Game of Thrones fan for not reading the books or some fake Star Wars fan for enjoying Episode 8, I can tell if theyre gatekeeping for real. Its not something you can read or see, its something I just know deep in my bones because Im the real deal.
I guess the ultimate advice when it comes to gatekeeping or nerd culture in general is this: always defer to whatever I say is right. Because when it comes down to it, only I truly understand what is right and what is wrong and what is good and what is bad. And youre trying to pull that off yourself? Youre doing it wrong.
BRIDGEWATER, Mass. Your coolest cousin and basically big brother from ages 4-13, Donnie McGee, was finally released from prison earlier today, not-so-excited sources confirmed.
Man, Donnie is the fucking best. Hes basically the reason I got into punk and hardcore. Without him, Id probably have been some n-metal wonk wishing Ozzfest would come back, you reported from your car outside of Old Colony Correctional Center in Bridgewater. We havent really talked much in the past 20 years because he got involved with some heavy shit, but I was the first person he called when he found out he got paroled.
Your longtime girlfriend Jolene Campos admitted shes a little uneasy about your admiration for your cousin, convicted of multiple, sometimes violent, felonies.
From everything Ive heard, it seems like Donnie was a ton of fun to start fires with as a kid but then got mixed up with a bad crowd as a teenager, said Campos while hiding her grandmothers heirloom jewelry. Which is fine I believe in second chances but this seems like his eighth or ninth chance and thats with legal intervention from the State of Massachusetts.
I do wish I was consulted about Donnie staying with us until he gets on his feet, though, she added. But, hey relationships are about compromise, and feeling kind of unsafe in your own home because of a criminal on your futon is just part of that, right?
Reportedly, while you waited for McGee to exit the medium security facility, you pondered which topics to discuss on the 15-minute drive to your apartment.
The last photo of him I saw, he had some extensive tattoo work done and Ive been getting tattooed for a while, so I figure we can discuss that, you said excitedly, pointing to the tattoo of your last name on your forearm. He was always the funniest dude: hed crack me up with his Ren and Stimpy impressions.
Im sure he has a ton of really funny prison stories, you added. I could tell him about the time I got pulled over and the cop let me go with a warning, because we had the same last name. People like that story, and he can probably relate.
At press time, you and your girlfriend were quietly watching Netflix on your phone in your bedroom, while McGee and a crew of large men got drunk in your living room.

MAUI, Hawaii As the live stream ended for the 2018 Video Game Awards, Gex the Gecko, titular character of the mildly popular Gex video game trilogy released in the 90s, reportedly slumped in his chair and let out a guttural sigh as yet another opportunity for a series reboot announcement failed to materialize.
The gaming industry doesnt care about old-timers like me. Blinx the Cat and I were texting last night, assuring each other that this was gonna be the year they bring us out of retirement, Gex told reporters, but apparently if you arent a fucking squad-based mmo-esque battle royale looter shooter with microtransactions, the industry has no use for you.
After pounding a shot, much to the chagrin of his girlfriend Agent Xtra, Gex began an angry monologue that sounded progressively drunker as it went on.
I used to be a star, you know? An influencer. There would be no Geico Gecko without me and that snivelling little social climber cant even return my calls or introduce me to some gaming execs. Im not picky; you want me to star in an endless runner? Ive put on a couple pounds but Id do it, Gex rambled on.
Name a genre and I promise I can lower my dignity to take it.
Sensing that this article might be his last chance at getting noticed by the gaming industry, Gex kept offering reasons why he deserves a comeback.
You dont even need me to update my pop culture references because they all have been rebooted and are cool again! Gex pleaded with reporters. I can even do my great Adriaaaannn thanks to the Creed movie!
At press time, industry sources said that Gex is up for the last slot on Nintendos rumored N64 Classic, although will have to compete with Glover and Brett Favre: NFL Quaterback Club 98.
A doctor at an immigration centre in Nauru has quietly told a young refugee on Nauru of the existence of a malignant government. He has given it four months to live.
Describing the government as aggressive, he explained that it would probably get worse before an attempt was made to remove it.
Its getting progressively worse Im afraid. It might make you feel sick, the doctor explained.
Labor leader Bill Shorten has returned from a date with the Government and proudly boasted to colleagues that he only let them get to second base as he cut them off before they got to third.
Bill was very happy with how the date went, he said it started off well and was very amicable and he felt in control at all times, said one of Bills closest confidants. The Government did get a bit frisky and tried it on but Bill stopped them as they approached third base.
Hes hopeful that things will keep progressing in a positive and amicable way.
However despite Bills positivity the Government has gone around boasting that they went all the way with Bill and have claimed that he was pretty easy.
The news has not yet gotten back to Bill and friends are worried that when it does it may devastate him and force him to do something stupid like exchange preferences

That leathery old bloke in speedos whos always strutting around at the beach wants you to take a shot at guessing how old he is.
How old do you reckon I am? asked wrinkly beachgoer Bert Vovo as he puffed out his chest in front of some random sunbathers at Manly Beach yesterday. Have a go, dont be shy how old?
Hed engaged me and my friend in some aimless chatter about bluebottles for several minutes before putting his hands on his hips and asking us to have a crack at guessing how old he is, said Norwegian tourist Elke Slopslap. I thought Id be polite and estimate his age and then knock 20 years off because I assumed he was fishing for a compliment on how fit he was.
Retired boilermaker Vovo was stoked when the pallid skinned backpacker guessed his age as 60ish, well below his actual age of 79.
Ive been a member of the surf lifesaving club here for 67 years and do 10 laps of the rock pool every morning, crowed the septuagenarian sand stroller.

Satisfied with the response, Vovo shuffled off down the beach in an old man jogging style looking for other sun bathers to have a chinwag with.
Scott Morrisons Liberal Government has held an emergency meeting overnight to change the constitution of the party to ensure that no sitting Craig Kelly is ever unseated in a pre-selection battle.
Weve listened to the people and by people I mean the chaps on Sky News after dark and weve heard loud and clear that the people want Craig Kelly in parliament, said Prime Minister Morrison. Besides if he didnt have parliament to go to hed be on Sky News 24/7 and I dont think anyone wants that do they?
Well maybe Andrew Bolt does but thats besides the point.
When asked why his Government put so much stock into the opinions of Sky News after dark the Prime Minister replied: Sky News is a great avenue for us as a Government to get our message across to their 10s of viewers.
Its either Sky News or appearing on the ABC where their presenters dare to ask us questions that arent on the script.
A top naval official in charge of operations in the Middle East was found dead in Bahrain Saturday, according to a Navy spokesperson. Although the navy officially ruled out foul play, calling his death an apparent suicide, our White House source claims Vice Adm. Scott A. Stearney, 58, was murdered because he intended to speak to the press about a brazen and ongoing UFO cover-up that for years had plagued his nerves.
He wanted to come forward, our source said, because a growing number of sailors under his command, varying from lowly seamen to commanding officers, had reported seeing unidentified flying objects rising from the waters in the Straits of Hormuz and the Arabian Sea. These craft ranged in size from a few meters in diameter to twice the length of a football field. In some cases, they arose from the sea and vanished into space in the blink of an eye; other times they surfaced and hovered directly abeam of U.S. warships.
Our source said that in 2018 Admiral Stearney submitted fifty-seven unidentified flying object reports to United States Central Command (CENTCOM) at MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa, FL.
When a solider or sailor encounters a UFO and reports it to his commanding officer, hes usually told to shut the fuck up. Hes told he had a hallucination, was dealing with sea sickness, or what he saw was a figment of his imagination. But still every report is filed up the Chain of Command. It was Adm. Stearneys responsibility to forward every report, regardless of credibility, to CENTCOM. The frequency of reports became so numerous that he must been overwhelmed. A few days prior to his death, he wrote CENTCOM a letter saying he believed the reports and that the information contained ought to be publically known and not buried in the bowls of the Pentagon, our source said.
Two days later, a fellow officer discovered Stearneys corpse in his Bahrain apartment. Without an investigation, the Naval Criminal Investigation Services (NCIS) excluded homicide in favor of suicide. The investigating agents allege...

In a breakthrough discovery, officials at the Scientific Lab For Study and Research in Washington, D.C., have developed the worlds first 100% cure for all types of cancer, no matter the region in the body or the severity. Researchers have been working on the drug for more than 20 years in secret, and trials on human subjects were just completed earlier this year.
The drug, which is already approved by the FDA for use in patients, has the largest price tag of any in the history of medicine. A single injection costs $4.7 million dollars, with the course of treatment needing a total of 52 injections over the course of a year. Final cost for the treatment? Nearly $2.5 billion dollars per person.
We know that its really, really high, but frankly, theres not much we can do about it, said lead researcher, Mario Jones, M.D. The ingredients in the drug warrant the cost. Were actually taking a loss on each injection by several hundred thousand dollars. I cannot speak to, exactly, what is in the drug, because of patent concerns, but let me tell you, its really a great deal if you can get your hands on it.
In a shocking move, Michelle Obama says she is ready to begin campaigning for a shot at the White House in 2020. The announcement comes after several months of speculation, but with Michelle always saying it wasnt going to happen. The news also includes a shocking running mate Michelles husband, former President Barack Obama.
We had to look into the legalities a lot, because we were not 100% sure it could happen, but it turns out, everything is in order, said Michelle Obama in a statement. Barack finished his two terms as elected President, but would be allowed to serve two more terms as Vice President, were he able to get elected with a running mate who is eligible for the office. I believe Im more than qualified for the job.
When questioned about the issue, though, that if something were to happen to her after election, Barack would become President for a third term, Michelle smiled slyly.
Yes, wellyou do never know what the future holds, she said.
President Trump says he is beginning the preparations for deporting his wife, Melania, back to whatever third world shithole she comes from, according to official White House documents.
According to reports, Melania and President Trump had a bitter argument in the middle of the Oval Office, although the stories differ as to what caused the argument in the first place, with most sources stating that President Trump dislikes being referred to be his wife as President Cheeto.
Frankly, I think its a sweet term of endearment from a wife to her husband, said one anonymous staffer. He really is taking it the wrong way. Now, of course, when she refers to his penis as the Presidents little Cheeto Puff, that might be crossing a line. But still theyre married, youre supposed to work these things out.
President Trump said that he has been married enough times in his life, that ditching one more wont make much of a dent in his life.
A Florida man has been charged with felony kidnapping and attempted murder after authorities discovered 47 missing children locked in the basement of his home.
According to police, more than 50 children have been reported missing in Miami since last Monday, and police were at a loss about the disappearances, until a tip lead them to the home of Mario Wilson, 50. Police say that an anonymous call led them to them.
We have no idea who made the call, or how they knew where to find the children, but we are grateful, said police chief Mitch Rogers. We have found 47 of the 52 children reported missing. We are still hunting for the 5 remaining children, and at this point, we have no reason to consider them anything other than missing.
Wilson reportedly was luring children into his home with the prospect of watching an unreleased Pokemon movie, to which every child gleefully ran into the home. Inside, they were disappointed to find that it was just a VHS tape of old recorded episodes.
A large group of concerned parents say they are extremely disappointed in the lack of drugs found mixed into their childrens bags after trick-or-treating this year. They say the issue comes because of the scare-tactic posts and clickbait bullshit articles theyve seen posted on their social media pages.
Frankly, I was a little upset that Johnny only came home with a bag of candy, and there were no nugs of weed or gummy bears laced with ecstasy mixed in, said Maria Jones, 38. With all the articles you see floating around every year, and especially this year, I really expected something good to be in the bag. Its a huge letdown.
Frankly, I blame the junkies for all of this, said Chris Richards, 29. We have an increased amount of avid drug users in this city, and so many people are using, theres just nothing left to give the kids anymore during Halloween. It really sucks. My 7-year-old is pleased as shit about the M&Ms, but wheres my MDMA?!
City officials say that this Halloween, like every Halloween throughout history, went off without a hitch, and there were no reported razor blades, needles, or drugs given out during the citys trick-or-treating.

President Trump has reportedly offered comedian Bill Cosby a full pardon, after the fallen star was found guilty of sexual assault and sentenced to 3 to 10 years in prison. Cosby, who is a lifelong friend of President Trump, could have spent his final days in prison had Trump not stepped in.
Bill is absolutely and without a doubt, innocent on all charges, said President Trump. I understand very well how our court system works. I probably understand better than anyone, but that doesnt matter. What matters is that I have met with Bill, we have spoken at length about the accusations against him, and I dont believe a word of them.
Over 60 women came forward to say that Bill Cosby had assaulted them, with many being drugged and raped while unconscious.
We all know women like to gab, and this is a perfect example of why I plan to lower the crimes associated with assault or rape, said Trump. Its obvious in this case that Bill had consensual sex with a woman who later regretted it, and then accused him of rape. Afterwards, of course, dozens of other women knew they could also try and make a dime off the publicity, and accused him as well. Its sickening truly sick how some people think.
Cosby, 81, will be allowed to leave prison on Monday as soon as the pardon is signed.
President Trump said this morning during a press conference that the MeToo movement has gone too far, and that too many honest, hardworking men are being thrown under the bus with lies and malicious intent, and that he plans to spend the rest of his time in office working to reduce the severity of rape and sexual assault charges.
In this world that we live, many men are having their lives ruined by false allegations and exaggerated claims, and its time to put a stop to it, said President Trump. I myself have been wrongly accused of sexual assault, as have many of my close friends, and its sickening. Its terrifying to live as a man right now, and know that at any time, some woman who you may not even know could come forward and say that you forcibly kissed her, or groped her, or that you offered her money to sit on your face, and it could ruin your life. Its disgusting behavior on the part of these women.
Trump went on to say that he felt that the transgressions of young men, if they happen at all, should be forgotten or pushed aside based on the work theyve done and accomplished in the years since.
I will not comment publicly on whether or not I believe Brett Kavanaugh assaulted anyone, even though we all clearly know that he didnt, said President Trump. What I do know is that the accusations are destroying him and his family, and thats not right. Its for MeToo to go away quietly.
President Trump said that he hopes to pass new laws that would decrease the criminal statute that would imprison people like Bill Cosby, who was sentenced to 3-10 years for sexual assault, and instead would allow men who are found guilty to pay a sort of fine, or restitution to the plaintiff.
It is my hope that my son can grow up in a world where no woman will ever accuse him of touching her inappropriately, whether he did or not, said Trump. I want to keep Making America Great Again, and at this point, this is my number one concern.
CHARLOTTE, North Carolina
The NFL has officially signed off on a name change request from the Carolina Panthers franchise, allowing the team to move forward with becoming the Carolina Black Panthers. The name request was submitted during the off-season, with NFL officials deliberating on the option.
We decided to let them go ahead and change the name, as well as the logo, said NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. We understand their reasoning after all, the team is made up of predominantly African-American players and we cannot see any reason why this name change would cause any issues.
The new Black Panthers say that they will finish the season with their current attired and logos, and plan for a switch during the 2019 season.
We are very happy with the decision to allow this, said team owner Mario Lewis. I mean, Im not a black guy, but I think its a very powerful statement. I know tons of black people, some of my best friends are black. So this is my way of supporting them, and supporting this team. We really hope that this will bring the fans together, and show them that singular differences are always the most important.
Brett Kavanaugh, who is currently under scrutiny for allegedly sexually assaulting several women decades ago while drunk in high school, was arrested last night after police were called to local Washington, D.C. dive bar Good Head.
Kavanaugh, who is trying to obtain a lifetime seat on the Supreme Court, was reportedly detained by security after he allegedly removed his penis from his pants, and begin vigorously masturbating in the busy bar, before urinating all over himself, falling into the fetal position, and crying.
When we arrived, Mr. Kavanaugh was beyond drunk, which from recent news reports, is perfectly in line with what we know about him, said police chief Mario Lewis. When we tried to detain him, Mr. Kavanaugh became unruly and violent, and assaulted two of my officers. A third officer was able to tase Mr. Kavanaugh before he caused any more harm or began masturbating again.
Bystanders say that police had to physically carry Kavanaugh from the bar, and that he was screaming and yelling and snarling the entire time. Kavanaugh was held overnight, and released on $20,000 bail.
A police office in Australia was hospitalized with several injuries after he was beaten and sexually assaulted by a wild kangaroo during the course of duty, reports Canberra newspaper The Canberra Times.
The attack occurred at 2 am yesterday after police officers responded to residents who were alarmed by an intruder on their property.
Police officers arrived on the scene to find an extremely
aggressive kangaroo and attempted to scare away the animal, without
He jumped on my partner, kicked him unconscious to the floor and started humping him and attempted to mate with him, Constable Pete Turnbull told reporters.
Constable Malcolm Rudd suffered from two cuts and a black eye as well as multiple concussions to the head after the kangaroo in heat attempted to mate with the officers head.
He was humping and rubbing his penis all over my partners face in a brutal fashion. I had to tase the animal or else he would have killed him Constable Pete Turnbull explained, visibly emotional.
It took several minutes before Constable Turnbull realized that his partner was in trouble as he was dealing with the residents who had called during the assault.
When he was lying unconscious on the ground, it was dark and I thought his head was covered in blood. Thankfully, it was mostly kangaroo sperm, Constable Turnbull told reporters in relief.

In a unprecedented move, Tennis Australia has taken the initiative in light of the backlash against Margaret Courts widely publicised stance on gay marriage by renaming all tennis courts across the nation as tennis goolagongs.
We didnt want to be associated with any of Margaret Courts homophobia, said a spokeperson for Tennis Australia. We noticed a huge drop of tennis being played over the last few days purely because tennis court shares its name with Margaret Court. So something had to be done.
Evonne Goolagong is a perfect replacement she won a bunch of majors, isnt racist or homophobic and isnt a raving lunatic, added the spokesperson. Plus tennis goolagong is just more fun to say.
In addition, there have been concerns voiced by World No.1 Andy Murray that tennis players trying to boycott Margaret Court Arena at the Australian Open would cause scheduling chaos.
It is believed that the short priced favourite amongst punters is the replacement name Tina Arenas Tiny Arena.
Margaret Court was contacted for this story, but has yet to make any official comment. After she stated that she would not fly Qantas due to their stance on gay marriage, apparently she has been out of contact while flying back from Perth on her broomstick.
I use Google nearly every day. Its great for finding even the most obscure information, like how to claim the warranty on a burner phone thats been prematurely tossed into the ocean. Today, I sought out Google to study the theory that Obama is an american citizen, his birth certificate is real, and he is not a lizard person, I never thought it could be this obvious, but heres what Google returned:
No results found for obama is an american citizen, his birth certificate is real, and he is not a lizard person
UNBELIEVABLE. If this very same site was able to retrieve 15,000 results for hillary clinton sex traffic ring, the absence of information about Obama is more than just a red flag. Its a red flag with the words I FUCKING KNEW IT printed on it.
But I didnt have the money to customize & order the flag because I was appealing the burner phone warranty claim that was UNJUSTLY denied. If huge answers like this are sitting right in front of my internet browser, waiting just for a simple Google search to be uncovered, what else could I find? The answer: way more information than I was ready for. The same night, I performed all of the following searches (multiple times to be sure):
If I vaccinate my children, theres absolutely no way they will develop autism
ISIS was NOT created as a special US program to topple the Syrian government
7-Eleven had nothing to do with the 9-Eleven attacks
None of these yield...
The modesty (and regular) police have stepped in to shut down the art that is the human body. Yours truly, a sovereign citizen, has been arrested for indecent exposure. Well I say that it was perfectly decent, so decent that I am often complimented on it.
So, no, excuse YOU, officer! The sign says No Shirt, No Shoes, No Service it speaks nothing about pants! I once saw a woman take her breast out in public and force a baby to suck on it! Now that is an affront to decency! What a double standard.
Sure, I may have been high on paint fumes from making a Wake Up Sheeple sign in my poorly ventilated garage when I went to Wal-Mart to buy more spray paint. And yes, I may have been kicked out of that Wal-Mart for, as the police report states, rambling incoherently, trying to eat bird seed, and removing his sweatpants & underwear. But that doesnt give you the right to stop me from expressing myself!
I thought progressives believed in full expression of the human spirit? Hypocrites.
If I am perfectly free to text a photo of my genitals to anonymous women on Tinder I dont know why I cant give them a live show as they load groceries into their Prius. I thought we, as a culture, dont see gender anymore? So how could the physical expression of my gender possibly offend anyone when technically it was invisible to Liberal eyes?
I yelled at them to explain that but nobody would look at me. Cowards.
This is all a liberal witch hunt! The nazis that run my town have been waiting for me to slip up even in the slightest. I bet if I was a black transgendered lesbian the workers at Subway would have applauded when I pressed my naked ass against their window.
And to the college girls who laughed at me before my arrest I will have you know that the human body is a beautiful thing, no matter what shape and size.
Why else would Dove make those small shampoo bottles if not to celebrate my penis?

In the original investigation of the 1998 Rush Hour kidnapping, POC special agent James Carter spells out ONE name: Chelsea Clinton. The first and only known demon-spawn of Shillary and Slick Willie Clinton.
Watch the documentary footage of the hostage negotiation below.
Man, who you think you kidnapped, Chelsea Clinton?!
That is some serious codewords folks. Anyone who has ever valued a blue life will know that that translates directly to Chelsea Clinton Is Our Main Suspect. You dont even need to be an operator in the forces to know that one! All the indicators are right there.
If thats not bad enough, imagine how China feels about this. They have to watch Chelsea Clinton run for president (its gonna happen, folks!) knowing that she still has their Consuls daughter chained up in the basement of a Comet Ping Pong, only being let out when someone orders the Sushi Pizza (WHICH IS ALSO CODE FOR UNSPEAKABLE CRIMES AGAINST CHILDREN)
Even more disturbing? Chelsea Clinton was born in 1980, which means she was BARELY AN ADULT when she pulled this stunt off. Imagine how powerful she has become in the years since especially if she has been harvesting life force from the Consuls daughter, which is obviously likely considering her moms connection to John Podesta and his goat blood fetish that PROBABLY INVOLVES CHILDREN.
So why hasnt there been a full scale investigation? Probably because Mommy and Daddy have been pulling the strings on the whole world. Thats why Hillary lost the election, she didnt have enough time...
Really? Heres proof that it isthree African-American men who attempted to dilute and destroy my familys glorious Aryan bloodline by going out with my sister:
Tyrone Wilson Tyrone goes to college during the day then works at the dry cleaners down the street from my house at night, and I DONT TRUST HIM. He also listens to hip hop, and even owns an early 1980s car! Every time I go to pick up my clothes down the street, he smiles this big toothy smile at me that gives me goosebumpsAnd apparently seduces my sister into annihilating the White Race!
Dave ChappelleComedian, actor, and writer Dave Chappelle briefly dated my sister in the summer of 2003 and, let me tell you, it was NO LAUGHING MATTER. When it came to my familys pure blood and European culture, let me tell you, he was really KILLING EM SOFTLY.
Marcus HowardMy sister and Marcus met on Match.com over a shared love of Italian food and 70s movies. Things got really serious between them, and after two short months they moved into a cozy little apartment together and bought a cat. But when Marcus was offered a lucrative job at a business consulting firm in Hong Kong, they both decided he was too young to give up the opportunity to save their relationship. I think it was the only time my sister was TRULY IN LOVE.
All examples of attempted White Genocide that were COVERED UP by the PROGRESSIVE MEDIA. Their corporate lackeys have scared my sister so much that she REFUSES to talk to me about it anymore.
Mayonnaise is my primary food source next to Mountain Dew and Taquitos (provided they are microwave safe and not made by actual Mexicans.) I eat it straight out of the jar to gain strength, stamina and virility. So any bastardization of my beloved favorite food offends me to no end, especially if that bastardization was created by GODLESS VEGANS. After extensive testing and speculation I have finally figured out whats in this mysterious substance vegans call a mayonnaise substitute. Lets review the facts:
There is only one super obvious conclusion here: VEGENAISE IS HORSE CUM. Look, there is nothing vegans like more than making sure animals are happier than me. Every time a vegan father pets a dog it is a PERSONAL AFFRONT to my un-patted head. (And every time a football coach pets a goat it is a PERSONAL AFFRONT to my unpatted butt, DARRYL!) Vegans want to please animals in every way possible. Thats the ONLY explanation for why I picture a vegan woman sensually massaging horses every night when Im trying to sleep. I know it. Thats why I conducted a taste test.
I tasted various materials from lead paint, white out, rubber cement, horse cum, almond milk, and the topical cortisone cream for that thing I have. Then I compared their tastes to regular mayonnaise and Vegenaise. It was VERY difficult to stomach these substances, ESPECIALLY the almond milk. But I did it to prove a point. And that point is that Vegenaise is definitely horse cum. From a palom...
Today Im writing to let you everyone know Ive devised an experiment to shut down this insane idea once and for all. I, a VIRILE PENIS-HAVING man, attempted to get WOMENS SERVICES from a WOMAN DOCTOR (gynecologist for my degreed readers).
Here are some of the things I tried:
Planned Parenthood is basically the Mecca (OH NO) of liberal female healthcare. The terrible organization nevertheless ADVERTISES SERVICES TO VULNERABLE MEN like STD and cancer screenings. HOWEVER, when I called them to ask about these man services, all they told me was stop screaming.
The next day I went to a local womens clinic. Another equality sham. No matter how many times I asked, they WOULD NOT give me an abortion. Now, OBVIOUSLY I am against abortion (my view is that all women should have sex with me but also be punished for it), but I did this FOR SCIENCE. So much for men=women, eh?
Finally, I went to the office of a gynecologist and ran in with my penis in hand. AFTER EVERYONE FINISHED CLAPPING I was told there was nothing medical they could do for it. Okay maybe part of that one was made up, but I think what it tells up about womens equality is still useful.
STRIKE THREE. ALRIGHT, EQUALITY, YOURE OUT.
Was there really any questions of this? If men and women have different doctors then how can they have SAME RIGHTS? Its Adam and Eve, not Adam and ADAM (this makes sense if you think about it!!) CHECKMATE, Feminists.
