I went in for a quick elective procedure – In and out! Thanks to the fine doctors/nurses for taking such good care of me. I’ll be up and drumming in no time. Thank you for the well wishes,” He captioned Friday’s pictures.  Although primarily known for his acting work, Stamos is also a drummer who occasionally plays with the Beach Boys.  Trigger finger is a condition in which a finger gets stuck in a bent position and can’t be extended again.  See the post HERE.

Carole Baskin Sells Joe Exotic’s Zoo

Joe Exotic’s former animal playground will be a zoo no more.  Carole Baskin of Big Cat Rescue, has sold the Oklahoma property and one of the provisions is that the land can’t be used as a zoo for 100 years, TMZ reported Saturday.  Big Cat Rescue was awarded control over the animal park in Wynnewood by a judge in 2020, part of the settlement in her long-standing trademark lawsuit against Exotic, whose real name is Joseph Maldonado-Passage.  Baskin registered the trademark for Big Cat Rescue in 2005. Exotic used the similar name Big Cat Rescue Entertainment and allegedly boasted on social media that he purposely used the name to “ruin” Baskin and her non-profit company.  The last remaining animals at the zoo, which once housed as many as 1,400 big cats, were turned over to the Justice Department earlier this month.  Last year, Exotic was sentenced 22 years in a federal lockup following his conviction on charges he hatched a murder-for-hire plot to kill Baskin.
********Yeah, but SHE’S the one with the meatgrinder!!!
********By the way, what did the feds do with those animals???
*******Joe Exotic will be released from prison when they find the body of Carole’s dead husband. Meaning… never!!!

New Michael Jackson Songs On The Way

“There is more music to release. They have music. He left behind music,” Michael Jackson’s brother Tito told The Sun.  Tito said the Jackson family has plans to record a new studio album, their first since 1989, and that they hope to record a new track featuring previously unknown material from their brother, one of the most celebrated artists in history, who died in 2009.  “It would be so pleasing to be on a record with Michael once again,” said Tito, who was in the UK performing with The Jacksons at the Happy Days Festival in Surrey. “Anything that would work we would be willing to give a try and see what happens.”  “It’s beyond our control but they always try and get our participation and we’re always happy to offer,” he said, apparently in reference to Sony, which paid $750 million in 2016 for Jackson’s lucrative share of the Sony/ATV music publishing catalogue.
********They call it “The Jackson 4 (plus one)!!”
******We’re only surprised that it the music hasn’t been released before now!!!!
********Maybe some of the kids can be involved, like Prince Michael Jackson and Jermajesty!!!!

Kanye Says He’s Back With Kim Kardashian

Kanye West is telling friends in the music business that he and Kim Kardashian are back together — but nobody believes it to be true, according to multiple sources.  They fueled reconciliation rumors after she was spotted holding West’s hand leaving his “Donda” listening party in Chicago on Thursday, after she joined him during the performance at Soldier Field for a faux wedding ceremony.  Music insiders say that West is putting on a big show of “performance art” in a bid to propel his album sales past those of his nemesis Drake.  As West and Drake prepare to drop albums at the same time, the two rappers have been trading barbs including West posting and deleting a screenshot of Drake’s address in Toronto.  One music insider said, “Kanye has been telling other rappers that he and Kim are back together, but everybody knows that isn’t true.  “The real story is that Kanye wants to beat Drake in record sales, and he is putting on a big show of performance art to grab all the media attention.”  The source added of his relationship with Kim, “They weren’t talking for months after she filed for divorce, but they began talking again earlier this summer for the sake of their kids.  A second source exclusively told Page Six, “Kanye asked Kim to be part of his performance art finale, and she was happy to help him achieve his creative vision and will always support him as an artist.”
*******Run, Kanye!!! Run!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
******You escaped the Kardashians with your manhood intact!! Don’t look back!!!
********They’re divorced. No butts about it!!!!

Cows Visit Drive-Thru

A visitor to a McDonald’s drive-through in Wisconsin captured video of an unusual sight — a cow riding in the back seat of another car.  Jessica Nelson, who posted the video to Facebook, said she was in line at the drive-through of the Marshfield eatery when she she spotted what she initially thought was a fake cow in the back seat of another car.  Nelson said she got her phone out to record video when she noticed the cow was moving — and was very much real.  “I realized it was 100% real,” she told the Green Bay Press Gazette. “No one seemed to be as interested as I was. I was the only one with my phone out.”  The cow turned out to belong to a man named Bernie who said he had just purchased the animal from a fair and was making a pit stop for food on the way home. Nelson was shocked to learn that the cow she saw was only one of three calves inside the vehicle at the time.  See the video HERE.
********They were milking it for all it’s worth!!
*****He asked if they wanted milkshakes and they said: “No thanks!!! We brought our own!!”
******The drive-through voice said, “Please mooooooove forward to the next window!!!”

Couple Wins The Same Lottery

A North Carolina couple won $997,400 with two identical tickets in the Cash 5 game this week.  Luthor Cannon bought the tickets for himself and his wife, Constance, at Yemen Food Mart in Rocky Mount, the North Carolina Education Lottery said in a news release Wednesday. He used the same numbers for both tickets.  “When he got home, he showed me the ticket and pulled up the winning numbers on his phone and when I looked at them, I just started crying,” Constance Cannon told lottery officials.  Luthor and Constance Cannon each won $498,700, taking home $352,830 each after taxes.  “It’s just amazing that we won this amount of money,” Constance Cannon said. “We can pay off our house and pay off our cars and be able to do something for our family.”
********Good thing they’re not in California… that money would just about pay for their valet parking!!
********It’s weird that you would pick the same numbers for both tickets!! It worked out this time, though!!
*******This might be a good time to split up!! They already have equal settlements!!!

Man Steals Mortuary Van…Body Falls Out!

A dead body rolled out of a stolen mortuary van as an Atlanta man sped away from a crematory parking lot on Wednesday and led police on a chase through Georgia, authorities said.  Kijon Griffin remains on the loose and is wanted for several felonies, the Conyers Police Department said.  When Griffin stole the mortuary van to escape pursuing police, a body on a gurney rolled out of the open back hatch and into the parking lot where it came to rest, police said. Personnel on site were able to safely secure the body.  Stan Henderson, the owner of the van and Stan Henderson & Sons Mortuary in Stockbridge, told FOX5 Atlanta that “it’s ridiculous that the dead can’t even rest.”  Police chased Griffin from the city of Conyers to DeKalb County, where van became disabled after striking multiple vehicles and blowing a tire. The suspect then fled the van and ran into a nearby wood line.
*********And GOT AWAY????
*******For stealing a dead body, he should get a stiff sentence!!
******This was a grave offense!!!!
