The Queen Still Has Photo Of Harry and Meghan

The Queen has a photo of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on display in her home at Buckingham Palace — despite the couple’s contentious exit from the British royal family.  The portrait could be seen in the background of Queen Elizabeth II’s meeting with the United Kingdom’s Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Wednesday.  The photo was propped on a table beside other family photos, including one of Harry’s brother Prince William and his wife Kate Middleton, as well as another framed pic of the Queen herself with her late husband Prince Philip.  Relations between Meghan and Harry and Buckingham Palace have been tense following the couple’s tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey in March where they claimed members of the royal family had questioned what their son Archie’s skin color would be.  Markle also claimed that the royal family did nothing to help her when she came forward and told them that she’d been experiencing suicidal thoughts as a result of royal life.
*******It’s hard to see, but she drew a funny little mustache on Meghan!!!
*******Meghan was so upset, she could barely bring herself to attend her own $40 million wedding!!
*******Even Oprah was shocked!!! “Only $40 million?? I spend that much on bread every month!!!”
*****In the picture of Harry and Meghan, she has a leash on his neck!! A subtle message…

Blink-182 Member Has Cancer

Mark Hoppus, the bassist and singer of Blink-182, announced on social media that he is undergoing chemotherapy for cancer.  He took to Twitter to inform fans that he has been receiving treatment for the past three months.  ”It sucks and I’m scared,” he posted. “And at the same time I’m blessed with incredible doctors and family and friends to get me through this.”  He said that he will continue to receive treatment for the next few months and cannot wait to be cancer-free.  Hoppus also posted in an Instagram story that showed him hooked up to an IV. Deadline reported that he captioned the picture, “Yes hello. One cancer treatment, please.”  He deleted the post, the report said.  Travis Barker, a bandmate, also posted on Instagram, “Love you, @markhoppus.”
*****Is there a Blink 182 curse???
*****Poor Travis: HE survived a plane crash, only to be sucked into the Kardashian Klan!!!!

Jennifer Aniston Back On The Carbs

Jennifer Aniston says that she overcame a food-related fear in recent years: the tempting bread basket at a restaurant table.  “[I] started to give myself a break, allowing yourself to have pasta, a sandwich,” she told People in a new interview. “Everyone’s very afraid of the bread basket, and I’m no longer afraid. As long as it’s all done in moderation.”  “There’s something my body appreciates about [having carbs], like, ‘Oh, thank you! Why are you depriving me of things I love?’” she explained.  Discussing her diet, Aniston revealed that she adheres to intermittent fasting but “just because I’m not a breakfast person. I just like a cup of coffee and my collagen.”  She also said that her workout regimen changed after she fell to the floor and was unable to get back up following a grueling fitness session last October.  “Sure enough, I had a 9-mm bulging disc, which is really intense,” Aniston said. “So my whole workout had to change.”  She has turned to Pilates to strengthen her back and is now more gentle on her body.
********Good!! Maybe she’ll get her bubble butt back!!!
*****We do intermittent fasting, too!! Usually right before payday when we’re out of money!!

Prince George Knows He’ll Be King

Prince George got a seventh birthday gift fit for a king when he was told that he’d one day take the throne, according to a new report.  “William has not revealed to the world how and when he broke the big news to his son. Maybe one day George will tell us the story himself. But sometime around the boy’s seventh birthday in the summer of 2020 it is thought that his parents went into more detail about what the little prince’s life of future royal ‘service and duty’ would particularly involve,” royal author Robert Lacey writes in his new, updated version of “Battle of Brothers” (via Daily Mail).  George turns 8 on July 22nd.  William and Kate reportedly wanted to sit George down at a “controlled moment of their choice” at the age of 7 in part because of “William’s unhappiness at the haphazard fashion in which the whole business of his royal destiny had buzzed around his head from the start,” according to Lacey.  The couple also stressed during the conversation that they wanted him to have “‘a normal upbringing,” enabling the monarchy “to stay relevant and keep up with modern times,” Lacey writes in the book.
********When will they tell him that grandpa probably had grandma killed??? Too much for an 8-year-old??
*******Kate told him: “Watch out for Archie!! I think he has a plan!!!”
******Our mom treated us like a prince!! But we never became king!!!
********If Charles takes the throne first, there may be nothing left!!!

Salma Hayek Says Her Boobs Are Still Growing

Salma Hayek has gone on the record to say that yes, her breasts are real — but she can understand why fans might think otherwise.  “A lot of people said that I had breast augmentation. I don’t blame them! My boobs were smaller! So was the rest of my body,” she said Wednesday on “Red Table Talk,” the Facebook Watch series Jada Pinkett Smith co-hosts with her daughter, Willow Smith, and mother, Adrienne Banfield-Norris.   Her growth, however, is all natural. Hayek explained that it happened significantly during life changes like pregnancy, menopause and periods of weight gain.  “For some women, they get smaller. But there are some women that when you gain weight, your boobs grow, and other women that when you have children and you breastfeed your boobs grow and they don’t go back down, and then in some of the cases when you are in menopause, they grow again,” she said. “I just happen to be one of those women that it happened in every single step! When I gain weight, when I got pregnant and when I am in menopause.” While her breasts “just kept growing,” she said it’s been a pain.  “Many, many sizes. And my back has been really suffering from it,” she said. “And not a lot of people talk about this.”  While the hot flashes and emotional intensity of menopause are often talked about, Hayek noted that the breast growth came as a surprise.  “I’ll tell you what they don’t tell you. The boobs grow — a lot,” said Hayek, who recently announced an HBO Max project about talking menopausal boobs.
********If she needs a boob wrangler, there are quite a few guys who will volunteer!!!
*********Let’s just say when it’s cold outside, she can cut glass with those things!!
*******Salma just learned about the bumps around the nipple.. they’re Braille for “suck here!!”

Tom Melts Down Over M:I-Again-(Life & Style)

A production delay once again brings out Tom Cruise’s angry side.  Not again!  In early June, filming on Mission:  Impossible 7 shut down for two weeks after at least one crew member tested positive for COVID-19-the latest of many frustrating and costly delays for Tom Cruise, who is not only the star of the franchise but a producer.  “Tom is experiencing déjà vu, and it’s not the good kind,” says an insider of the actor, who famously ranted at crew members for breaking coronavirus restrictions in a tape leaked back in January.  “He’s livid because he feels that his team dropped the ball with their lack of health precautions, and it’s made him have yet another meltdown.”

“The richest man on Earth quits his job and blasts into space, and nothing has ever seemed so suspicious to me.”-Connor Ratliff.



Costumer Leaves Huge Tip

Workers at a New Hampshire restaurant said they were stunned when a customer left a $16,000 tip on his $37.93 bill.  Michelle McCudden, a bartender at Stumble Inn Bar & Grill in Londonderry, said the customer, who is not a regular, had ordered a couple hot dogs, some cocktails and fried pickles before asking for his bill.  “He’s kind of a mystery man,” McCudden told WBTS-TV.  McCudden was shocked when she looked at the man’s receipt and saw the $16,000 tip.  “It was on the credit card statement, they put it down next to the register and he said three times, ‘Don’t spend it all in one place.’ That’s what made her flip it over and look, and she’s like, ‘Oh my god, are you serious?’ And he said, ‘I want you to have it, you guys work hard,'” owner Mike Zarella told WMUR-TV.  Employees called Zarella to tell him about the unusual tip.  “I thought it was a mistake, it could have been maybe a $160 tip and he added extra zeros,” Zarella said. “The bar manager talked to the gentleman and he said, ‘No, it’s $16,000.'”  The restaurant pools tips, so the money will be split among the eight servers on duty that night — with some set aside for the cooks.
********Mmm… nothing goes with cocktails like hot dogs and fried pickles!!!
*******Sounds like this guy was due to report his income in a divorce case!! He needed to get rid of some money!!!

Bar To Accept Monopoly Money

A Massachusetts bar announced it will accept Monopoly money as currency for 2 hours as part of its bid to be included in a localized version of the game.  Ralph’s Tavern in Worcester said customers who visit the business from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesday can use Monopoly money to pay the $5 cover charge, and the play money will also be accepted for hot dogs, non-alcoholic Jell-O shots and tickets for a raffle.  The bar’s owners said state laws bar the business from accepting Monopoly money for alcoholic beverages, so legal tender will still be required for drinks during Wednesday’s event.  Ralph’s, which bills itself as the “oldest tavern” in Worcester, is campaigning to be included in a localized Worcester version of Monopoly, which is being produced by Top Trumps USA, the company licensed by Hasbro to produce localized Monopoly games.
**********The way the government is spending, the Monopoly cash could be worth more than the real stuff!!!
*********Monopoly should start their own digital currency!! It would be a smash!!
*******If you eat a hot dog without paying, you go Directly to Jail!!

Record Height Difference

A British man and his wife, who is nearly 2 feet taller than him, were awarded a Guinness World Record for greatest height differential of a married couple.  James and Chloe Lusted, who married in 2016, were awarded the Guinness record in the different sexes/taller woman category after their heights were verified at 3 feet, 7 inches for James and 5 feet, 5 inches for Chloe — a difference of 1 foot, 10 inches.  James Lusted, 33, an actor and TV host, met Chloe, 27, a teacher, through friends in 2012. James was born with diastrophic dysplasia, a rare type of dwarfism that affects bone and cartilage development.  “Our love story has taught us and taught others that you can’t judge a book by its cover, and just to love the person no matter who they are. I don’t think you can choose who you fall in love with,” Chloe Lusted said.
********For some reason, British guys seem to go for taller women!! Exhibit 1: Rod Stewart!!
*******Even when you’re taller than your wife, she can still look down on you!! Don’t ask!!

Steers Escape Slaughterhouse

Authorities in California said 38 steers were captured and at least one remains on the loose after the herd escaped from a slaughterhouse.  The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said the herd escaped from a Pico Rivera slaughterhouse Tuesday evening, and deputies were summoned to the Beverly Road and Durfee Avenue area, about a mile from the slaughterhouse, about 8:35 p.m.  Residents said they were stampeding through the streets and damaged fences, mailboxes and cars.  Authorities chased them into a cul-de-sac, where deputies and a group of ranchers wielding lassos were able to corral them onto a trailer.
********The steers are now at Wendy’s… in a slightly different form!!
LOCAL NEWS kept calling them “cows!!” They don’t know the difference between a cow, a bull and a steer!!!

Need to know how to prepare for a zombie apocalypse? The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has you covered.

The CDC says the first thing to do is to prepare an emergency kit, packed with things such as water, food and other supplies to get you through the first couple of days before you can locate a zombie-free refugee camp. Or, in the event of a natural disaster, an emergency kit will buy you some time until you are able to make your way to an evacuation shelter or until utility lines are restored.


CDC offers tips to survive zombie apocalypse just in case 

Below are a few items you should include in your kit:

  • Water (1 gallon per person per day)
  • Food (stock up on non-perishable items that you eat regularly)
  • Medications (this includes prescription and non-prescription meds)
  • Tools and Supplies (utility knife, duct tape, battery-powered radio, etc.)
  • Sanitation and Hygiene(household bleach, soap, towels, etc.)
  • Clothing and Bedding (a change of clothes for each family member and blankets)
  • Important documents(copies of your driver’s license, passport, and birth certificate, to name a few)
  • First Aid supplies (although you’re a goner if a zombie bites you, you can use these supplies to treat basic cuts and lacerations that you might get during a tornado or hurricane)
