She confirmed that the pics were legit: “Book filed a complaint with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement after getting multiple text messages from an unknown number on Nov. 12, including two nude pictures that Book sent only to a close friend.”

Some sites claim to have leaked nude pics of her. I don’t know if those are the ones the kid was talking about, or even whether those are she.

Georgia, I presume.

Cincy seems safe at #4. The committee can’t pick Notre Dame over Cincinnati since they’ve already played head-to-head and Cincy won. The other possible choices are Baylor and Ohio State. Baylor could have made the top four if not for an embarrassing mid-season loss to lowly TCU. I would still rank them above Notre Dame if I got to make the list. Meanwhile, THE Ohio State University, which has absolutely no chance at the final four, probably actually belongs there. They would probably be at least seven-point favorites against Cincinnati, maybe more! C’est la vie, THE. 2021 ain’t your time.

She is an internet “star.” OK, I know her credentials for “celebrity” are unimpressive. She hasn’t scored any touchdowns, made any important discoveries, starred in big-budget shows, or cured any deadly diseases. But what is impressive is that she has consistently figured out how to sneak her bare butt onto Instagram.

She hails from Brazil. I spent quite a bit of time in the state of Sao Paulo back in the 90s, and it seemed that almost every Brazilian woman was gorgeous, and many were very aggressive. This didn’t really work out that well for me, because it also seemed that the men were generally younger and better looking than I was, so the competition was fierce, but I did have one thing goin’ for me. It seemed that almost every Brazilian woman wanted to touch my straight, light-blond hair. That was pretty cool at first, since it gave me a good opportunity to strike up conversations with beautiful women, but after a while it became annoying, and therefore a consciousness-raising thing for me. I learned how black people must feel in the USA when curious white people ask for the same liberty.

Anyway, Lais is a looker, even by the rigorous Brazilian standards.

It was an ad for an airline. From what he says, it must have been either Saudia or Emirates.

It’s nice to have that much money because, after all, that’s what allowed him to have a conscience about working with the Saudis. Let’s face it, the rest of us can’t afford to be that moral. If I get that kind of offer, I’m out there singing and dancing and praising North Korea and my personal friend, “The Jonger” (as I, his pal, like to call him). If the Taliban can come up with that kind of scratch, I’m doing tourism adds for Kabul. “Come for the beautiful poppy fields, stay for the beheadings! And don’t miss the land mine maze!” As in all trips sponsored by Scoopy Travel, your money is cheerfully refunded if two or more of your human rights are violated. 1


Footnote #1:

  • No partial refunds for the loss of only a single human right, unless that causes the loss of more than one limb.
  • The human rights violations must be certified by an accredited international court.
  • Refunds are not transferable, so I keep the dough if one of your violated rights happens to involve loss of life.

Here is the complete COVID report for Friday.

There is again bad news in the USA, even before omicron has become a factor.

  • The total number of hospitalized COVID patients has passed 50,000 for the first time since October 18th and is still rising.
  • The number of new cases reported in the USA was 147k on Friday, the highest since September 17th, and is still rising daily.
  • The national testing percentage reached 7.1% positive, the highest since September 26th, and rising daily.

Michigan is the hot spot at the moment. Cases are 7x the red line, just a hair less than the highest in the USA, and fatalities are 5x the red line, the very highest in the land.

Man who sold fried grasshoppers on Uganda Airlines plane faces jail”

Overheard in Ugandan prison:

“What are you guys in for?”


“Human trafficking”

“Selling grasshoppers”

“Yet Uganda Airlines said it would consider adding the delicacy to its menu upon request, noting the excitement onboard from passengers during a low season for grasshopper numbers in Uganda.”

Can Aussies drink the most? Maybe not! “It’s possible that they were the drunkest country in 2020 because they largely managed to avoid COVID-19 lockdowns. Bars and clubs remained open.” Heck, in Wisconsin we call Aussies “teetotalers.” Then again, Wisconsin is not a country. Yet.

Kidding aside, the article says that the average Australian gets drunk 27 times a year, and that the women drink more than the men. That’s a lot of alcohol abuse, even by Wisconsin standards.

“The holiday season is a time when people all around the world pause from their hectic daily lives to participate in cherished holiday traditions that have been handed down from generation to generation, no matter how stupid they are. But for sheer stupidity, no holiday tradition can compare with our annual Holiday Gift Guide. This is a curated collection of unique gift ideas that we painstakingly select via a ‘vetting’ process that can take us as long as 10 minutes, including a five-minute snack break. Every item in this guide is a real product that you can, for whatever depraved reason, actually buy. We know this because we personally purchased all of these items with the Miami Herald’s money, such as it is.”
