May your weekend be glorious.
Big news today: Pizza for breakfast is healthier than cereal, according to some SCIENCE PEOPLE. Is this true?? What am I, a doctor?
Things go so continually wrong for Meghan McCain on iconic morning program The View that sometimes you almost pity her. So it was today, when McCain managed to turn a harmless discussion about dragons-and-incest hour Game of Thrones into a stomach-churning festival of awkwardness.
Today, Brexit fanatic and all-around wanker Nigel Farage was campaigning in the British city of Newcastle when he fell victim to the most wonderful thing happening in politics these days: the drive-by milkshake attack.
Pete Buttigieg’s presidential candidacy has mostly been equal parts dull and irksome thus far, but seeing him go after multiple Fox News hosts while doing a Fox News town hall on Sunday was undeniably entertaining.

A debate we had today: is it better to have a washer and dryer at home, or to have a dishwasher at home? The newsroom was TORN APART by this question. What say you? (My opinion: washer dryer duh.)
