For that prize I'm rooting for the fellow in the "pleasure craft" who photobombed the Dragon Crew recovery after splashdown who was flying the "Trump 2020" flag.  I literally LMAO.

PROVO CANYON — A Pleasant Grove man was charged Monday with throwing his wife into the Provo River and threatening bystanders who tried to help her.

Douglas Harold Green, 61, is charged in 4th District Court with aggravated kidnapping in the course of committing unlawful detention, a third-degree felony; and assault, a class B misdemeanor.

On Sunday, Green and his wife were at Provo River Resort when employees told police that Green had thrown his wife into the Provo River, according to a police affidavit.

Green said he threw her into the river “after she refused to do what he asked. The victim claimed she and Douglas were arguing over dinner arrangements. ..." Full story

The Quiet Man - John Wayne & Maureen O'Hara

If a political party does not have its foundation in the determination to advance a cause that is right and that is moral, then it is not a political party; it is merely a conspiracy to seize power.

Greatest movie of ALL time.

KFC drops 'Finger Lickin’ Good' slogan during coronavirus pandemic

by Zachary Halaschak, Breaking News Reporter
August 24, 2020 08:55 PM


KFC's chicken is “finger lickin’ good,” but it will no longer be using the slogan given the coronavirus pandemic.

The Kentucky-based fast-food restaurant chain announced the change on Monday in a playful news release where KFC declared itself the “winner of the award for the most inappropriate slogan for 2020.”

“Think we can all agree, this year has been like no other and, right now, our slogan doesn’t feel quite right,” the company said. “So, for that reason, we’ll be pressing pause on using it in our advertising, for a little while.”

My Bad, I thought they were dropping the slogan because it has become connected to Joe.

Explosive device used at gender-reveal party causes fire and mass evacuations in California
A fire that has destroyed over 7,000 acres and forced the evacuation of 3,000 residents was caused by a "smoke generating" explosive used at a gender-reveal party, according to the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection. "With the dry conditions and critical fire weather, it doesn’t take much to start a wildfire. Those responsible for starting fires due to negligence or illegal activity can be held financially and criminally responsible," the statement said.

Toddler gets his head stuck in toilet seat, dad has to saw him out

That’s definitely the wrong way to use the potty.
A Florida family found themselves in an unusual situation when their 2-year-old son got his training toilet stuck around his neck. The family filmed the removal process, which required a saw and apparently a toddler who is amazingly good at standing still for his age.

Don't make ME be the one that has to ask the obvious question here.

I do think I have an obvious nickname for him,though.

Don't ask.

Dentist who extracted tooth on hoverboard sentenced to 12 years in prison
By Jackie Salo

Quote
An Alaska dentist who extracted a patient’s tooth while riding on a hoverboard has been sentenced to 12 years behind bars for that stunt and other wheel-y bad crimes.

Seth Lookhart was sentenced Monday in Anchorage Superior Court on dozens of charges that stemmed from his scooting antics to Medicaid fraud and removing a patient’s teeth without their permission, the Anchorage Daily News reported.

He was convicted back in January on charges of reckless endangerment, illegally practicing dentistry and medical assistance fraud. ...

I suspect his prison sentence had more to do with practicing medicine without a license than hover boarding.

Is this why so many people get anxiety when they go to the dentist?

Delingpole: Socially-Distanced German Soccer Team Gets Thrashed 37-0



A German soccer team has been thrashed 37-0 because its players insisted on observing rules about ‘social distancing.’

The defeated amateur football team SG Ripdorf/Molzen II were worried that their opponents SV Holdenstedt II had been exposed in a previous fixture to a player who had tested positive for Chinese coronavirus.

So, to protect themselves from this deadly threat SG Ripdorf/Molzen II decided to field only seven players (the minimum required to avoid a fine for forfeiting the game). The players then failed to participate in the game – allowing their opponents to walk all over them.
