No word on whether the sex offenders and Trump supporters accepted ABC’s apology.

“[Fill in the blank] Sparks Twitter Outrage”


That’s too easy for lazy journalists.

These days, a chipped toenail can “spark Twitter outrage.”




I’m noticing an odd trend with movie titles, in which instructions are barked at the audience, as in Don’t Breathe and Get Out.

What can happen when you are bored

  • I found Brasil ‘66 videos on YouTube.
  • I read about Brasil ‘66 on Wikipedia.
  • I learned that one of the singers, Karen Philipp, lives near me in Minnesota.
  • I Googled her name and found this Playboy layout:
