Arab nations are telling the White House to support the removal of Iraq’s government. Wait – isn’t this what the guys currently overrunning the country want? A government change? (So are we siding with ISIS now? That’s one of my favorite old TV shows, I think I still have the comics somewhere*). Americans are increasingly concerned about sending US troops back to Iraq, but President Obama says he's sure he can restore public confidence with one quick visit to Jimmy Kimmel’s show.
According to the mastermind who planned it, the attack on the Benghazi consulate in 2012 actually WAS inspired by that anti-Islamic YouTube video. Former White House press secretary Jay Carney said, "Even I thought we were lying about that. I guess you just get lucky sometimes.”

For the second time this week, hundreds of ticketless fans swarmed the gates at the World Cup. 85 Chile fans were detained so they missed seeing their team knock Spain out of the competition; they were just too focused on Chile con CARNAGE!
And … It was a dark night last night; Facebook was down for 30 minutes! I’m surprised modern society is still standing. People were roaming the streets holding pictures of themselves up before total strangers asking “DO YOU LIKE THIS?” Stalkers had to stop clicking through my profile and stand outside my house with binoculars like the stalkers of old. People ate food without taking a picture of it! People went to the gym without checking in! The horror … the horror…
*Please tell me I’m not the only one who remembers that series.
