    The creators of the show “South Park” have issued a rare apology, reprising the character ManBearPig to make amends for a dis that is more than a decade old. In a 2006 episode during season 10 of the animated series, Al Gore issues a stern warning to the students of South Park Elementary School about the “single biggest threat to our planet.” He was talking about ManBearPig, a creature meant to represent climate change... “South Park” was effectively mocking the global issue at the center of “An Inconvenient Truth.” Now, 12 years later, show creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker...

    Guns N' Roses frontman Axl Rose tore into President Trump on Sunday night for playing their music at his political rallies after they formally requested him not to. Rose took to Twitter to vent his frustrations about his music being played at Trump-associated events. "Unfortunately the Trump campaign is using loopholes in the various venues’ blanket performance licenses which were not intended for such craven political purposes, without the songwriters’ consent," Rose wrote. "Can u say “shitbags?!” Rose said that he thought it was "ironic" that Trump supporters were listening to "anti-Trump music" at his campaign rallies. "But I don’t...

    (CNN) - If you see Barbra Streisand driving on the streets of Los Angeles, you might want to get out of the way. "Late Late Show" host James Corden switched things up on Thursday night's episode of "Carpool Karaoke" by having the music legend be the one behind the wheel, while he sat in the passenger seat. Within minutes of getting into the car, Streisand told Corden that she recently had to retake her driving test in order to renew her driver's license. But the caveat is that she failed the test three times before finally receiving the green light...

    Phil Mudd can go from 0-60 faster than a Ferrari. After a long, measured, discussion on CNN this morning about the firing of Peter Strzok [Mudd thought it was the right decision], co-host John Berman invited Mudd, a former CIA and FBI official, to comment on President Trump’s failure to mention John McCain during a signing ceremony of the defense authorization bill named in his honor. Mudd became immediately enraged, going off on this epic rant: “Are you kidding me? Let me get this straight. So the President has insulted everybody from former Presidents Bush and Obama, Rex Tillerson, Jeb...

    It started with money, as it so often does in New York. A crisp $100 bill slipped across the smooth surface of the mid-century-inspired concierge desk at 11 Howard, the sleek new boutique hotel in Soho. Looking up, Neffatari Davis, the 25-year-old concierge, who goes by “Neff,” was surprised to see the cash had come from a young woman who seemed to be around her age. She had a heart-shaped face and pouty lips surrounded by a wild tangle of red hair, her eyes framed by incongruously chunky black glasses that Neff, an aspiring cinematographer with an eye for detail,...

    American Airlines is making it very clear: Insects, goats and hedgehogs cannot be brought on planes as emotional support animals. The airline revised its guidelines on Monday for comfort animals on flights. Those who want to bring such an animal on board now have to file paperwork 48 hours before a flight, and there are new restrictions on which types of animals are permitted. "We support the rights of customers, from veterans to people with disabilities, with legitimate needs for a trained service or support animal," American Airlines said in a press release. "Unfortunately, untrained animals can lead to safety...

When I interviewed the widely respected aviation journalist Bill Sweetman in 2013, I pointed out the Typhoon, F-22 and F-35 programmes have all received a great deal of criticism, but could he give an example of a well-run military aircraft project? He replied: “Almost anything from the land of blondes, aquavit and IKEA.” In an article Sweetman wrote for Aviation Week he argued that there the case for describing the forthcoming Gripen E/F...

    Photos Suggest that Kim Jong Un Wears Special Shoes to Make Himself Look Taller By Allie Fasanella On the heels (pun intended) of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and South Korean President Moon Jae-in’s historic first meeting, South Korea’s media is calling out Kim for wearing special shoes to make himself appear taller. Chosun Ilbo, a conservative South Korean newspaper, analyzed videos and photographs of the recent landmark summit between the two leaders and spotted a rather high slope on the front of his shoes that seems to suggest the footwear contains insoles that push Kim’s feet upward. According...
