"SNL's" Pete Davidson in engaged to Ariana Grande. It is serious. The couple has already been out licking wedding cakes.



In New York, an Uber driver who kicked out two pretty lesbians for kissing in his car, lost his job. This has been a rough patch for Kevin Spacey.

After dating just a month, Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson are engaged. Now, I hate to be a pessimist, but I give the whole thing about . . .  and they're broken up.




A study shows people spend about 1/4 less on Father's Day than they do on Mother's Day. You can call your father to ask him, but he'll just give the phone to your mom.

In Minneapolis, the MPR raccoon made it to roof of the 23-story building. And, once again, Dennis Rodman is trying to take all the credit.




Since you asked:

“All lies and jest, still a man hears what he wants to hear and disregards the rest.”


“The Boxer.”


That line from Simon and Garfunkle has never applied to current politics more than it does now. 

Liberals and or Trump haters see the Singapore Summit as pandering to and giving credibility to a murderous, evil dictator for a publicity stunt that did not benefit the US at all.

Conservatives and Trump lovers see it as the greatest diplomacy coup since Nixon opened China. 

As usual, the truth is somewhere in the middle. But it isn’t what Trump did or did not do at the Summit. My question is what is the threat from North Korea?

Have you seen a satellite photo of North Korea at night? It makes the desert of Nevada look like Paris. As Gertrude Stein said of Oakland, there is no there there. But unlike Oakland, there really is no there in North Korea. North Korea's there does not have any there there. 

“60 Minutes” segment on the nuclear capabilities of North Korea was replayed for the Singapore summit. The reporter, David Martin, had a clear agenda to make this story scary and exciting. He basically arm-wrestled one expert to say North Korean missiles - the non-nuclear kind - could reach the US. But that was only using math and theory.

Reporter David Martin would have been accused of leading the witness in a trial. He cited the evidence that North Korea is making enriched uranium and they have missiles. But they do not have a missile casing that can withstand the re-entry of our atmosphere.

Other than Kim Jong Un being crazy and doing something really stupid, the threat from North Korea is minimal.

People cite the example of Libya and Khadafi getting murdered after he gave up his nuclear arsenal. How much of a threat is Kim Jong Un if he is that unstable and about to be overthrown?

Anytime an event features Dennis Rodman as a key expert? Its credibility is in serious question.


Let's play, "Who seems nice, but isn't?"

A friend of ours adorable 10-year-old daughter could not be more of a "Friends" fan. Seen every episode twice. They go to lunch at a vegetarian restaurant in LA and there she is, Lisa Kudrow. Phobe her ownself. 

My friend's daughter, as sweetly as she can, asks for a picture with Lisa. Lisa does not even make eye contact and says,

"Respect my privacy and leave me alone."


Generally unimpressive actress, Kate Mara, like most people, has two grandfathers. But in her case both of them own NFL teams. One owns the Giants, the other owns the Steelers. The biggest conflict for Kate growing up was when the Steelers played the Giants, trying to decide which luxury box to attend. 

Kate Mara was on a talk show and while pimping her latest movie, she let it be known within about six seconds that she is a vegan. That's fine. But then she blurts out, like she is the "Exorcist;" 

"If you want to kill innocent animals for your selfish needs, try and live with yourself." 

As if I needed more reasons to hate the Giants and the Steelers. 

Hey, Kate, did you know that football is made with a pig skin? Go head and try and live with yourself.

It was not Sniffy-Day Per Se, Torn Slatterns and Nugget Ranchers


Stormy Daniels is launching a perfume called Truth. The perfect gift for that woman in your life who wants to smell like the woman who had sex with Donald Trump.



Stormy Daniels is launching a perfume called Truth. Much better name than the name the test marketing group came up with: Trump’s Funk. 




A State Department spokeswoman, in a speech on Germany, mentioned the anniversary of D-Day. So I guess the message is US and German relations have been good once we got past that whole "One million of us killing each other" thing.

The good news is a race horse named Bofa Deez Nutz won its race. The bad news is ten bettors were charged with sexual harassment when they told the teller to "Put it on Bofa Deez Nuts."

Preview of Donald Trump driving the bus over and over Rudy Giuliani



The Bus Stops Here, Rudy The G



There is absolutely no revisionist history, Rudy Giuliani did an excellent job as the mayor of New York on September 11th, 2001. He provided the voice and face of leadership we needed right when we needed it. 

Not only did Rudy talk-the-talk, he walked-the-walk by attending almost all of the fireman and policeman’s funerals. He knew how important it was to their families to be able to say the mayor was at their funeral. There is simply no taking that away from him.

This was surprising to many inside New Yorkers who detested Giuliani as a tyrannical and cruel egomaniac who brutalized underlings and political opponents alike. 

But now, in light of Giuliani's sleazy handling of Donald Trump’s lies, we can question Rudy Giuliani's motives. As much as he did help people, we now know September 11th was all just shrewd posturing to further Giuliani’s career. 

At the time it did not seem possible that a politician could be so rabidly ambitious that they could leverage the death of three thousand people and see it as an opportunity to advance their career. 

But with his constant back-peddling, lying and double-talking for Trump, that is now obviously all Giuliani could ever do. Giuliani has no moral compass, he has only the radioactive glow from his political avarice to guide him.

What is great about seeing professional Trump ass-kissers, like Giuliani, Anthony Scaramucci, Paul Manafort, Steve Bannon, Chris Christie, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, Mike Flynn, Hope Hicks and Stephen Miller, is knowing, as sure as the wind blows up Trump's combover, Trump will turn on them.

As Bannon, Christie, Hicks, Manafort, Flynn and Scaramucci have already found out, Trump will always eventually back them into an impossible situation and then throw them under the bus to save his white, fat, lumpy, lying ass. 

From everything I've read, anyone who has dealt with Giuliani knows he is one nasty piece of business away from the cameras.  When Trump does discard him, it is hard to imagine that pit bull going quietly into the night. 

But no matter how hard he fights back, Rudy Giuliani is going to get thrown under the Trump bus and Trump is going to back it up and roll it over him over and over again. 


In the world of Greek diner coffee cups filled with a "cawwfeee reeegulah" drenched in milk and filled with sugar where Mayor Rudy was the man who would be King, another hero has died. 


For about fifteen years after September 11th, 2001, we would have been sorry to see that bus roll over the hero of 9/11, Rudy Giuliani. 

Not any more.




Make no doubt about, Trump is going to serve Rudy.

Bip, bap, boop, gonna get me some termaytee soup, Torn Slatterns and Nugget Ranchers



Donald Trump said Canadians, not the British, burned the White House in 1812. We should ask someone who was there. Call Larry King.







In England, a baby's first word was Alexa. Its next words were, "Alexa, sign me up for therapy for life."







Learned math using my fingers #AgeYourselfIn3Words






First we let Canadians burn down our White House in the "War of 1812," next they'll replace our bacon with round pieces of thin, dry ham.






Sure, Canada burned down the White House in the "War of 1812," but don't forget they also gave us the Beatles.







Now, I don't want to say tonight's game 3 is a must-win for the Cleveland Cavaliers, but it is a must-win for the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Huh. I guess I did want to say it.







Donald Trump's family fortune started with his grandfather's brothel. Trump was the one who decided to expand making money by screwing people with real estate.






The Philadelphia Eagles bailed on their ceremony, Melania has been missing for over 20 days and now Kellyanne Conway calls him the Commander in Cheese. Roughest time for Trump since his tanning salon ran out of his Burnt Sienna Sunset tanning spray.





French President, Emmanuel Macron, described his conversations with Donald Trump as like sausage. When asked to explain, Macron said, "The guy talks about sausage all the time. What is there to explain?"



JOE JACKSON ★ Is She Really Going Out with Him 【HD】




It is just me, or are these two melodies strikingly similar? Think about "Is she really going out with him?" and "We're running through the shadows of the night." Since Joe was first by a few years, we are going to point a finger at Pat.

"Hey guys, uh, there's a red-thingy moving towards the green-thingy, and I think we're the green-thingy, Torn Slatterns and Nugget Ranchers"



A Michigan State physicist was arrested for having sex with a basset hound. In his defense, he was drunk and he thought the dog was Roseanne.




A Michigan State physicist was arrested for having sex with a basset hound. When he found out the man had sex with a female basset, VP Mike Pence was ready to pardon him.




A Michigan State physicist was arrested for having sex with a basset hound. He could serve three months in jail, or 21 months in having-sex-with-a-dog-years.





Bill Clinton says he does not owe Monica Lewinski an apology. For a change, Bill blew Monica off.




A Michigan State physicist was arrested for having sex with a female basset. This kind of thing on his record could hound him forever.




The White House cancelled the Philadelphia Eagles visit to the White House. It was awkward, when told the Eagles weren't coming, Donald Trump said, "Big deal. They haven't had a hit since "Hotel California."



Since you asked:


The Philadelphia Eagles were down to 10 players showing at the White House, so Donald Trump cancelled lying it was due to protesting the anthem. 

Trump is a big "No, I broke up with you first" kind of guy.


The White House said it is canceling the Philadelphia Eagles because they kneel during the anthem. Not one Eagle player knelt the entire season.


It's official, Donald Trump is the high school rich kid who invited the cool jocks to his party, but they shined him on.

This is the ultimate insult for Donald Trump. Trump biggest wish to be accepted as a cool kid and as one of the jocks was his desire to own an NFL team. And he tried twice with the Buffalo Bills and Dallas Cowboys. 

But, like always, Trump tried to get in on the cheap and burned all of his NFL bridges.

Trump even tried to get in the back door by buying the New Jersey Generals and getting the USFL to switch from the no-competition Spring to the NFL’s Fall. That idiotic move on Trump’s part destroyed the league. 

To the NFL’s credit, they constantly told the double-talking, low-balling, publicity whore Trump to go pound sand. 

Trump is nothing if not predictable. He will do everything he can to get back at the Eagles and the city of Philadelphia for this embarrassing snub. 

Now for equal time.

The fact that Bill Clinton has absolutely no idea his legacy will never be anything more than a punchline to a blow-job joke gives an indication of how impossibly oversized and blinding his ego is.

Some sycophant of Bill Clinton's has to nut-up and tell this blowhard - excuse the pun - that we desperately want him to go to eff away.  For good.

Paris Hilton. Doesn't the term scuzzy jizz-bucket just fly into your mind? 


'Taint issues are not for the feint of heart, Torn Slatterns and Nugget Ranchers



The anti-gay baker reminds me of the joke of two cupcakes in an oven. One cupcake says, "Man, it is hot in here." The other cupcake says, "Holy crap, a talking cupcake."

In game two, LeBron James's poked left eye was so nasty looking it actually took people's mind off of his suit shorts.




Since you asked:

“Steph Curry set an NBA Finals game record with nine three-pointers in Golden State’s 122-103 win over Cleveland in Game 2.”

That line is an object lesson in how statistics cannot tell the story. Curry's shots were so electrifying and crazy, the crowd lost its ever-loving mind.

When you see LeBron’s petulant behavior and sulking, especially during the break before overtime in Game 1 after JR Smith’s brain-fart, you know Cleveland is toast. LeBron does not possess enough leadership to overcome a more talented Golden State team.

Nobody is better than LeBron James. But Cleveland does not have anyone else better than the four stars on the Warriors, Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, Kevin Durant and Draymond Green. Maybe Kevin Love, but that’s it. Tristan Thompson should stick to dating Kardashians. 


Due to his endless crotch-slamming and his default “You called a foul on me?” expression, I was not a Draymond Green fan. But his scrappy play, tough defense, rebounding and passing have made me convert. 


Rest in Peace, Dwight Clark. Class act. That 1982 "The Catch" team really epitomized the blending of a town and the team. Montana, Rice, Clark, Roger Craig and especially coach Bill Walsh. They just looked like they fit in with the cool, foggy San Francisco, the nice wines, and fish and steak houses. 

The 1982 Forty Niners look like Stanford students with Bill Walsh as their professor. They look like they're on a winery tour and Bill Walsh is showing them how the tannins appear on the side of the glass. 

The 1975 Steelers were the same fit with Pittsburgh as were the 1983 Chargers with Dan Fouts in San Diego and the 1967 Green Bay Packers with Bart Starr. 

The 1985 Bears were just the right combination of Chicago blue collar tough  guys with yellow power tie yuppies. Perfect example, Gary Fencik. 

Unfortunately, with way higher salaries and soaring egos, the fans and NFL players have never been further apart emotionally or socially. There is not one team that resembles its city. New England? Please. Tom Brady is a super model's super model. Rob Gronkowski is a little closer, but he is still Hollywood.

No, players now are all Tesla, Lamborghini, Nike and Rebook. No personality. 

The days of fans drinking with the Oakland Raiders in waterfront Oakland dive bar have gone forever. 

So we mourn more than just the classy and handsome Dwight Clark. We mourn the end of a team, city and their players fitting like a hand in glove. 



Bill Clinton infuriated me with his classless egomaniacal horniness with a chubby intern staining the image of the Oval Office forever.

But compared to Trump, Clinton was the Jackie Kennedy of White House class. This tiny-fisted corn-silk-haired oaf has degraded the image of the presidency to a point it will never get 100% clean again.

Since you asked:


You can tell a great deal about a person by who is their favorite Beatle.


Paul McCartney. 

This is the most popular because he is probably the most talented. And that is detracting from some of his inexcusable “Wings” digressions. “Silly Little Love Songs” will always rank as bad a song as “Yesterday” was great. John and Paul were just not nearly as good without each other. 

90% of woman say Paul was their favorite because he was the cutest.

John Lennon.

This is the choice of people who claim to be real Beatle experts. This is also the choice of many pseudo-intellectuals. While one of the greatest song writers ever, story after story reveals Lennon was not a good guy and more than a bit of a hypocrite. To his credit, he sang for peace and against materialism. And yet he had a history of domestic violence and lived in the most luxurious building in the world, the Dakota.  

Eric Clapton is honest to a fault about himself and others in his biography, “Clapton,” and he cited several examples of Lennon being an utter asshole to him, the most respected musician in England. Lennon still is the only person who was ever kicked out of the bar at the Troubadour in LA for being rude to the waitress. 

In what Lennon thought was a trick to strengthen his admittedly weak voice, the use of doubling up his vocals on recordings made it sound creepy and robot-like as if it came through cellophane. Think “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds.”  

And Lennon's most unforgivable sin: he foisted that human nightmare, Yoko Ono on us.

George Harrison

George is my choice as well as the choice of many musicians. Not to keep dumping on Lennon, but Lennon was a below-average guitarist and vocalist and he and McCartney were, according to Clapton, quite condescending and judgmental of Harrison’s music writing abilities. That is how Harrison was able to make a double album “All Things Must Pass” out of the songs McCartney and Lennon rejected. Harrison asked Clapton to play on “While My Guitar Gently Weeps” so that Paul and John would take it seriously and put it on “The White Album.”   

Ringo

Ringo is the choice of all drummers and all contrarians. While nowhere near as flashy as a Keith Moon or as strong as Jon Bonham, Ringo is greatly admired for his unique style and personality he brought to the drums. It was when Ringo joined the band that George, Paul and John knew they would eventually hit it big.

Do not have a favorite Beatle because I do not like the Beatles.

Get away from this asshole as fast as you can. 

The only excuse for someone not liking the Beatles is if they’re are diehard hard rock fans and that is a poor excuse. The Beatles were the greatest, but they really were an amped up folk band. Not in the rock category like Led Zeppelin and the Rolling Stones and the Who. Paul and John were not American blues fans like George Harrison, Eric Clapton, Keith Richards, Pete Townsend and Jimmy Page. John and Paul were die-hard Elvis fans.  



When I was a sophomore in high school, I got the honor to scrimmage in a football practice with two of the greatest athletes who went to my high school, Clay Matthews Jr. and Johnny Castino. 

Clay Matthews Jr. is probably the best defensive player who is not in - and should be in - the Hall of Fame. (His brother, Bruce, is) 

Johnny Castino was the AL Rookie of the Year at third base for the Minnesota Twins and was compared to Brooks Robinson. 

Our 1974 New Trier East varsity football team was ranked second in the state of Illinois at that time and the team that was ranked first in state was their next opponent and our hated rival, Evanston. Whichever team won would be the unanimous first team in the state for the season. (This was two years before Illinois started state playoffs, so they went with rankings) 

Most the high schools in our area split into two due to the baby boom. (My high school, New Trier, split into New Trier East and West. I went to East) In what some considered a shrewd move and others considered shady, Evanston split into four separate schools but maintained one athletic department. This made their athletic draw four times bigger than any other high school, including ours. And Evanston's athletes were far more diverse than the lily-white New Trier East. 


Evanston’s star player was Joe Stewart who was the state Champion at 100 (nee) yards and would later play briefly for the Oakland Raiders. Since I was fast, I was brought up to from the sophomore team to play the role of Joe Stewart for that week of practice for the defense. Even though I was two years younger than the seniors.

With Johnny Castino playing a scrappy tail back with great hands, the rumor was I was going to replace Clay Matthews at fullback. As great as Clay was at linebacker, he was not a great fullback and they wanted to save his considerable energy for defense.

Clay did not appear to like the idea of being replaced by a longhaired sophomore and proceeded to make me his bitch those two days of full contact. And our varsity head football coach - who, out of utter disrespect on my part, will go nameless -  had already taken a dislike  to me and allowed Clay to essentially, but mostly legally, abuse me. 

As it would turn out, the varsity defeated Evanston in a rainy and muddy game - neutralizing Joe Stewart and Evanston’s speed - and were then ranked first in state. So I was not needed to replace Clay Matthews at fullback and went on to score 22 touchdowns for my sophomore team. (Yes, I am working in a little bragging here too)   

Clay played 15 almost injury-free years in the NFL and made it to four Pro Bowls. Clay Matthews Jr. should be in the NFL Hall of Fame. 

While a great player, and, as I said, Co-Rookie of the Year for the American League, Johnny Castino played just five years in the Majors due to his aforementioned bad back.  

At 62, Johnny Castino has had numerous back surgeries and has had both knees replaced. 

At 62, Clay Matthews still runs the conditioning wind sprints with the high school football team he coaches. 

Genetics and luck are fickle mistresses in the world of sports injuries.

As great as the documentary on Jane Goodall, “Jane” was, it just about broke my heart. No. It did break my heart. 

One of the chimps was a doting mother named Flo. Flo had a bulbous nose, ragged ears and a heart as big as she was. She had a boy who worshiped her named Flint. Yes, Flint was spoiled, and yes, Flo should have been tougher on him and cut the apron strings. But she didn’t. Flo carried Flint around like he was a baby when he was a teenager. 

One day poor old Flo’s big heart gave out as she was crossing a river and she just died peacefully on the side of the river bank. Flint kept poking her to get her to play with him. Finally, after hours, Flint gave up. 

Flint lost the will to eat and he lost the will to live. And Flint was dead three weeks later.

The exact same thing happened to our poor sweet labrador Wrigley after our beloved labrador Kasey died. Only it took Wrigley an entire year to succumb from grief. 

Wrigley and Kasey, we love you and think about you every day.

My opinion on Samantha Bee is she just made a terrible decision. It was a bad joke and it accomplished the opposite of what she wanted: it made people sympathize with Ivanka Trump. Not an easy thing to do these days.

Something has to be tragically flawed with that show's editing process for someone to even, A, float the idea of saying the C-word and then, B, nobody shooting it down as an incredibly stupid idea. This seems to indicate the star's ego does not have anyone around with a spine. 

In Sam-B’s defense, I do think the C-word is a different when used by a woman on a woman. There is a double-standard. Men cannot say the C-word.

While I am a fan of Samantha Bee and think she is smart, I am not a fan of her show. It boils down to her delivery. Sam-B is so earnest and intense she leans forward at her waist in an “In your face” stance giving me a sense that I want to back away. 

Samantha’s need to get in the viewers face and air her intensity led directly to her horrible choice of the C-word. The B-word would have been just as effective without any problems. 


No doubt ABC did a gutsy thing yanking a top ranked show in "Roseanne," but before we nominate them for the Nobel Peace Prize, let's remember a couple things. 

First, the ratings, while still high, are down 23% and falling. They wanted to attract Trump's followers while still handing out heavy-handed Hollywood liberal morals. You cannot have it both ways.

Second, the brains behind the reboot, Whitney Cummings, bailed a month before Roseanne's rant. Whitney knew the crazy-woman's-smeared-feces writing was on the wall. 

Third, and most importantly, Roseanne Barr was always going to be Roseanne Barr. Expecting lightening to hit that brain-damaged, racist psycho twice was asking way too much. This is a woman who, when left to her own devices, thinks it is a good idea to sing the National Anthem off key and spit on the ground afterward. 

And bake people cookies dressed like Hitler.
