Amazon is planning to shift from indie films to more commercial projects. The only problem will be finding leading actors who will work for $7.50 an hour.

Florida could decide to declare porn a health risk. Which is a pretty big leap for a state that is inundated with sharks, hurricanes and George Zimmerman.

Major League Baseball says a pitching clock will be likely this year. Except for Dodger reliever Pedro Baez who can only be timed with an hourglass.

Mike Trout will be the highest paid baseball player at $34 Million in 2018. Mostly because it’s easy to catch a trout when using that kind of bait.

Mike Trout will be the highest paid baseball player at $34 Million in 2018. Which in L.A. means he now has enough money to go shopping for a two-bedroom fixer upper in Pacoima.

Tom Brady missed practice on Thursday because of a thumb injury. That put’s Sunday’s game in jeopardy especially since the injury is to his ball-deflating hand.

The Women’s Tennis Association has signed a deal to move their Finals tournament to China and doubling the purse to $14 Million. Crews have already started construction on the site, which will be highlighted by the Great Net of China.

Charles Barkley called LeBron James a “drama queen.” Of course, the way for James to get on Barkley’s good side is if he would become more of a “Dairy Queen.”

Trump appointee Carl Higbie has resigned over his past use of racist, sexist, xenophobic and homophobic language on the radio. Or as Rush Limbaugh calls that, a pretty lucrative career.

Trump appointee Carl Higbie has resigned over his past use of racist, sexist, xenophobic and homophobic language. Or as most Trump Administration workers call that, a pretty good reference letter.

Some National Parks will remain open in the event of a government shutdown. Mostly because no one can figure out where the valve is to turn off Old Faithful.

Donald Trump described his exercise routine as “I walk, I this, I that.” “This” meaning skipping out on press conferences and “that” meaning working out his fingers sending insulting tweets.

The government is in danger of shutting down this week. The only thing that will stay open is Congress so the members can spend their time making sure they blame the closure on the other party.

Two Iowa boys are facing felony charges after vandalizing hives and killing a half million bees. The boys were caught after authorities set up a sting operation.

That’s it for now, Oh Faithful Readers! Well, the government is on the verge of shutting down. The only question being, how can anyone tell? As if the employees need even more time off. Although how bad can it be to close down an operation for a few days that has been running at a $20 Trillion deficit. Sounds like it might be a good idea every few weeks or so. The really good news is that Donald Trump won’t be able to start any wars until things get back up and running so that takes at least one worry off most of our minds. My way of fighting off worries is to sit down here every day and crank out some weak attempts at humor. It relaxes me, and of course I am always at my happiest when you all remember to always keep sending the love!

The UK has appointed a minister of loneliness to help people deal with social isolation. Or they could have just told people to turn off their iPhones for once.

Starbucks is testing a no cash policy at a Seattle store. Which makes sense for the people who need to take out a second mortgage for a large double mocha latte.

Apple says it will create 20,000 U.S. jobs in the next five years. The only problem will be figuring out how to get that many Chinese workers over here that quickly.

A plastic surgeon in Kentucky was arrested for being intoxicated on his way to an operation. The first sign was that his plastic surgery “after” pictures gallery looked like a Picasso exhibit.

The cognitive test Donald Trump was given in his physical consisted of identifying pictures of animals, sketching a cube and matching letters to numbers. So the competency of our Chief Executive is determined by Highlights For Children?

Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino from “Jersey Shore” is facing 15 years in prison for tax evasion. Or as a prison sentence for anyone on the show is called, a cast reunion.

Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino from “Jersey Shore” is facing 15 years in prison for tax evasion on $8.9 Million in income. People were shocked. Why is anyone from “Jersey Shore” making $8.9 Million?

A report says Donald Trump used the word “fake” more than 400 times his first year in office. To which Trump says the reporter who said that is just fake.

Rupert Murdoch is recovering from a painful back injury. Which is ironic in that is exactly what the founder of Fox News has been to Democrats the past 20 years.

The AHL Charlotte Checkers played a hockey game to a completely empty arena because of winter weather. As opposed to the Carolina Hurricanes playing to an empty arena, which is otherwise known as “Tuesday.”

Dennis Rodman checked into rehab following a DUI arrest in California. Apparently he has a weakness for Champagne every time he tries on his favorite wedding dress.

Katie Couric and Mike Tirico will host the Winter Olympic Opening Ceremonies. Tirico will replace Bob Costas but will pay homage by keeping an onion on his desk to make it look like he has pink eye.

Toyota will air Super Bowl ads featuring no cars. Which will have the same effect as those commercials with the Swedish Bikini Team that no one had any idea what they were actually selling.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson says Donald Trump is “world class” at social media. Although after Trump’s latest tweets about North Korea he probably meant to say “World War.”

The DHS will block Haitians from getting temporary visas. Mostly because Donald Trump says DHS now stands for “Department of Hindering S--tholes.”

That’s it for now, Oh Faithful Readers! Well, Donald Trump gave out his Fake News Awards. Which shows how fake it was because if it was like any of the real awards show, the winners would all have been bashing Trump. The news business loves to give itself enough awards anyway. As I have learned, there is only one award that counts, and that is getting that paycheck every two weeks. Which is exactly what I don’t get from this blog. But I like doing this much more than my job. Go figure. Of course there is one payment I do get from cranking out these attempts at humor, and that is when all of you remember to always keep on sending the love!
