    I's been snowing all night. So the morning goes like this 8:00 I made a snowman. 8:10 A feminist passed by and asked me why I didn't make a snow woman. 8:15 So, I made a snow woman. 8:17 The nanny of the neighbors complained about the snow woman's voluptuous chest. 8:20 The gay couple living nearby grumbled that it could have been two snowmen instead 8:25 The vegans at No. 12 complained about the carrot nose, as veggies are food and not to decorate snow figures with. 8:28 I am being called a racist because the snow couple is...

    Time ^ | May 16, 2018 | CASEY QUACKENBUSH
    There’s a new debate storming the internet that’s reminiscent of the furor over that white and gold dress back in 2015 (or was it blue and back?) People are torn over an audio clip of a computer-generated voice, with some listeners saying they hear the word ‘Laurel’ in a deep male voice, and others saying they hear ‘Yanny’ in a higher-pitch. The recording went viral after it first surfaced on Reddit earlier this week. It was later posted on Twitter, where it has been liked more than 50,000 times and stoked a fierce debate.....

    A CNN reporter holds UK newspapers with the latest Thomas Markle headlines in front of Windsor castle. As the British press scrambles to follow scoop after scoop from US website TMZ about Meghan Markle's father's attendance at the royal wedding, a consensus has set in among those in the Royal media: The Palace has lost control. "The palace press aides are like ostriches sticking their heads in the sand and they keep getting shafted up the bottom," said royal pundit and ex-Sun royal correspondent Charles Rae. Over the last few days, TMZ has been in near constant contact with Thomas...

    Just because he’s not saying, “I do,” doesn’t mean he can’t be a part of the biggest wedding of the year John Cena has offered to give away Meghan Markle at her upcoming royal wedding to Prince Harry, since her father can no longer make it. During his appearance on the Today show, Kathie Lee Gifford told Cena, “She is in need of someone to give her away, isn’t she? Who better than you?” After a laugh, he responded, “I can hop on a plane, I can get there in a few days!” Markle’s father, Thomas Markle, revealed on Tuesday...

    Good on Donald Trump for receiving not-so-great results from a physical and making big dietary changes to improve his health. Trump is no longer restricting himself to soups and salads — come on, that’s way too extreme — but he’s still keeping his meals in the health zone. A Washington Post report reveals that at a recent lunch with his new attorney, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, Trump dined on a well-done burger with only half a bun, “I do that, too, sometimes,” Giuliani told the newspaper. “It’s a good way to do it.” Bravo, Mr. President. The...

    Prince William, the future king of the United Kingdom, is in the middle of a quandary that’s probably familiar to most people: wedding vs. sports. His younger brother, Prince Harry, is marrying actress Meghan Markle on Saturday, and he’s the best man. But England’s Football Association Cup final between Manchester United and Chelsea is on Saturday as well, and William is expected to attend in an official capacity. While this seems like a no-brainer — family over sports, it’s not quite that easy for William. Why does Prince William need to attend the FA Cup final? Every year, the FA...

    Meghan Markle‘s father may be walking her down the aisle after all. Thomas Markle said he has changed his mind after speaking to his daughter and has decided to travel to Windsor and to attend Meghan and Prince Harry‘s wedding. However, Thomas says this is all contingent on his doctor’s approval and that he is back in the hospital after reportedly suffering a heart attack last week. Thomas says that Meghan attempted to call him yesterday, but that he was not near his phone to answer the call. She then sent him a text message, in which he says that...

    Tonya Harding and her partner Sasha Farber will compete in the Dancing With the Stars finale, thanks in part to her performance on Monday night. Despite being voted into the finale by many fans, many other fans were disappointed. Harding has been the most polarizing contestant this season. Her checkered past, which includes allegedly being involved in an assault on Nancy Kerrigan, has left her at odds with many fans. One upset fan tweeted, “Disgraced figure skater over all of those other athletes in the #dwts final? What the hell, America.” But while many fans were upset, others defended the...
