    Aye maties, 'tis the day we've all been waiting for: International Talk Like a Pirate Day. But avast! Before you grab your grog and parrot, let's get ye educated! The idea for the day was born in 1995 on a YMCA racquetball court in Albany, Oregon. John "Ol' Chumbucket" Baur and his friend Mark "Cap'n Slappy" Summers began throwing around insults, just like pirates. They selected Sept. 19, simply because Summers had recently divorced, it was his ex-wife's birthday, and he figured "the date was stuck in my head, and I wasn't going to do anything with it anymore," he...

  • Another Letter has been sent to Feinstein. (Satire)

    Dear Senator Feinstein, I am writing to you with concern about a colleague of yours that has committed crimes that should not go unpunished. I am requesting that my identity remain anonymous. The person in question has been continuously violating numerous laws for many years and I feel that it is time to expose this person and force her to face the justice that she deserves. I know the details of all the crimes involved, from violating national security to murder. One such incident was a staged suicide to cover up a murder, another being violating national security by keeping...

    A disagreement between Chinese tourists and a hostel in Stockholm over check-in time has turned into a diplomatic spat between China and Sweden, after Beijing criticised Sweden for violating the human rights of Chinese citizens.

    UNIVERSAL CITY, CA—In a selfless move designed to help victims of sexual harassment and abuse, Universal Pictures announced Tuesday it would be donating all proceeds from the new Fifty Shades Freed movie—the final chapter in the blockbuster trilogy featuring a creepily aggressive, controlling male lead and raunchy sex and bondage scenes—to foundations that support the #MeToo movement. According to the company, all profits from ticket and movie sales of the film focused on an unhealthy, abusive relationship will go toward ensuring women aren’t objectified, harassed, or otherwise victimized by men who use their wealth and status as leverage. “Every time...

    4-YEAR-OLD'S FIRST PAY CHECK a truly heart-warming story about the bond formed between a little 4-year-old girl and some construction workers that will make you believe that we all can make a difference when we give a child the gift of our time. Love the ending! Young family moved to a house, next to a vacant lot. One day, a construction crew turned up to start building a house on the empty lot. The young family's 4-year-old daughter naturally took an interest in all the activity going on next door and spent much of each day observing the workers. Eventually...
  • Florence Deaths To Rise To 20,000 (Satire)

    A study commissioned by the Democratic National Committee at George Washington University projected that at least 20,000 people would die as a result of Hurricane Florence. GWU used the Climate Change Model perfected by Global Warming professors Jones, Hansen and Mann to calculate their projections of 20,000 deaths. Although the actual number of deaths to date are less than 20, when the Puerto Rico model (3,000 estimated deaths) was updated with the Florence statistics and tweaked several times, the death estimates rose to 20,000. GWU defended their results stating that several factors influenced the estimates. Many of the estimated deaths...

    "We're going to launch our own satellite — our own damn satellite to figure out where the pollution is and how we’re going to end it," Brown told the audience at the Global Climate Action Summit in San Francisco..."In California, with science under attack, in fact we’re under attack by a lot of people, including Donald Trump, but the climate threat still keeps growing," Brown added. "So, we want to know, what the hell is going on all over the world, all the time?"..."If Trump turns off the satellites, California will launch its own damn satellite," Brown said back in...

    SEATTLE -- Seattle Storm point guard Sue Bird reiterated Friday that the team's players would not have interest in visiting the White House if an invitation is extended to the WNBA's new champions. "At this point, it doesn't even really need to be discussed," Bird said. "It's come up. We paid attention to what happened with Minnesota not getting invited. Everyone knew when everything happened with Steph Curry and LeBron (James) on social media, all that stuff. We all pay attention and we watch.

    Well, this isn’t good. Planned Parenthood’s incoming president Dr. Leana Wen just confirmed in an interview that she has acquired the final Infinity Stone, the last piece of her plan to utilize the Infinity Gauntlet to wipe out millions of babies across the universe. “Aborting babies does put a smile on my face,” she said in the whimsical video announcing her new position with the abortion provider, a video in which the Infinity Gauntlet is clearly visible on a shelf behind her. “They can dread it, they can run from it—well, actually they can’t because they’re society’s most vulnerable group—but...
  • Sexual Predator? Brent Kavanaugh, SCOTUS candidate.

    Today, Diane Feinstein, Senator from California, revealed that she referred a secret letter to the FBI, for a thorough investigation. In this letter, an anonymous woman claims that Brent Kavanaugh acted sexually inappropriately with her when they were both in high school. This is an extraordinarily disturbing development. And while this revelation -- known all summer and produced after he has been questioned by the full Senate -- is enough to disqualify anyone from any appointed position, there is much more to reveal. Let us all consider the momentous seriousness of this horrific accusation. There is nobody reading this column...
