'Eat a banana inside your own mouth,' was Babbage's idea of an April Fools' Day prank

Popular Festival Returns

The 2021 Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival will feature headlining performances by the Foo Fighters, Lizzo and Tyler, the Creator.  Organizers announced a lineup for the annual music festival Wednesday.  This year’s concerts will take place Sept. 2-5 in Manchester, Tenn. 2021 marks the 20th anniversary of the music festival.  Tickets go on sale Wednesday at 1 p.m. EDT.  Bonnaroo postponed its 2020 music festival due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Organizers said this year’s event will follow COVID-19 safety protocols.  “Throughout its 20-year history, Bonnaroo has evolved and innovated to make each and every event more enjoyable, with the safety of its fans, artists, and staff a top priority. Bonnaroo organizers as always will be in regular communication with local health and public safety officials and will continue to abide by relevant recommendations.”  Other 2021 music festivals have been canceled or will continue to hold virtual events. Glastonbury Festival said Tuesday that Coldplay and Haim will headline a live stream concert in May.
*******There’s nothing like being there in person, so you can smell the sweat and the pot!!!

*******Can a festival be healthy AND fun?? “Bro, we were totally socially distancing from these hot chicks!!”

Spongebob Episodes Pulled

Nickelodeon has pulled two episodes of its animated comedy series SpongeBob SquarePants.  One episode of the show will no longer air in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, while another had inappropriate content for children.  The Season 12 episode “Kwarantined Crab” was pulled due to “sensitivities surrounding the global, real-world pandemic,” Nickelodeon EVP of communications David Bittler said.  In “Kwarantined Crab,” a health inspector finds a case of the “Clam Flu” in the Krusty Krab restaurant and quarantines the people inside. Those believed to have the virus are shunned and put in a freezer.  News of the removal follows increased anti-Asian violence in the United States. Reports of hate crimes targeting Asian Americans have surged since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic.  In addition, Nickelodeon confirmed to Entertainment Weekly that it pulled the Season 3 episode “Mid-Life Crustacean” in 2018.  In “Mid-Life Crustacean,” SpongeBob, Patrick and Mr. Krabs break into a woman’s house and steal her underwear during a night out.  “‘Mid-Life Crustacean’ has been out of rotation since 2018, following a standards review in which we determined some story elements were not kid-appropriate,” Bittler said.  The two episodes will no longer stream on Paramount+ and Amazon Prime Video.
*******Mr. Krabs wanted her underwear because he heard she had “crabs!!”
******Can we compromise and call it the “Communist Virus???”
******When a Spongebob episode is causing hate crimes, you know we’re in trouble!!!

Meghan and Harry Make Surprise Zoom Appearance

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry made a teenaged girl’s year when they surprised her in a Zoom meeting.  They worked with the organizations L.A. Works and the I Have a Dream Foundation to help mentor a young girl who has been navigating high school online this year. The teen was absolutely shocked when Markle and Harry appeared on her screen, L.A. Works Executive Director Deborah Brutchey told People magazine.   “She had this moment of surprise and excitement when she got on the phone with the Duke and Duchess,” Brutchey said. “She knew of them, she knew a lot — she had been following Meghan’s story quite a bit, so she was very excited that she had the opportunity to speak with them.”  Brutchey added how the teen was moved by the couple’s “compassion, humility and wisdom.”  “It was really significant for [the teen] because they saw her potential in a few short minutes, which actually really undid some damage that had been previously caused by a former teacher’s doubt,” Brutchey explained. “It was just amazing how they were able to connect and how their compassion, in just a short conversation, really made an impact and is going to forever inspire her.”
*******This is why they are the two most inspiring, important people in the WORLD!! (source: Meghan’s publicist)
*****Meghan advised her to work hard, study and find a vulnerable rich guy to marry!!
********Now all the other teenaged girls are super-jealous. They’re gonna need a visit from H&M to keep THEM going!!!

Idol Judge Suffered Major Redneck Injury

Luke Bryan showed off a horrific injury that took place during a fishing outing with a friend on Tuesday.  He shared a gruesome video on Instagram on Monday that showed a fishing lure pierced through his thumb in two separate places.  “Well…this is gonna leave a mark,” Bryan says in a video as he stood inches from the water, showing an up-close look at his thumb with a bit of blood on it. “Pretty sure that’s in my bone.”  In subsequent posts shared to his Instagram Story, he explained he had gone out on a fishing trip with his guitar tech, Russ, when the injury took place.  “I invited Russ on a fishing trip and leave it to me, I ruined the fishing trip. But we’ll be back on the water in about 25 minutes,” Bryan said calmly.  Another video shows him in the waiting room of a medical facility. “We’re violating HIPPA somehow,” he said before letting out some laughter.
*******Redneck’s last words: “Look what I can do!!!”
*****If you ain’t had a hook in your hand, you ain’t been fishin’!!!!
*******Final score: Fish 1, Luke 0!!!!!

Dancing With The Stars Renewed

ABC’s long-running “Dancing with the Stars” has been picked up for a 30th season.  The milestone was announced across the show’s social media platforms on Tuesday.  “See you back in the #DWTS ballroom!” a tweet from the dance competition series reads.  According to The Hollywood Reporter, host Tyra Banks, judges Len Goodman, Derek Hough, Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli are expected to return. A premiere date has yet to be announced and celebrity contestants and dance pros are expected to be revealed at a later date.  Banks appeared to tease her return in an Instagram post consisting of selfies. “#DWTS 2021,” she captioned the post.
*****This is amazing, considering they ran out of “stars” a long time ago!!!!
*******If Tyra keeps at it, she may get the hang of hosting the show!!!
*******How many times have they asked Meghan Markle to be on??? Ya think???

Meghan Wants To Be President

Meghan Markle’s new biographer thinks the duchess has a “good chance” of becoming US president — but will “struggle” under the microscope of politics because of her “clear sensitivity.”  “The prospect of Meghan running for president is possible and I’d even say likely,” Tom Bower, who reportedly signed a six-figure deal to write about Prince Harry’s wife, told Closer magazine in the UK, according to The US Sun.  “I really believe it’s where she sees herself going,” the biographer told the mag.   “I think she has a good chance of getting into the White House,” he insisted — noting that the role could finally see her reuniting with the royal family she ripped in her TV tell-all.  She would “perhaps visit the UK to have tea with the Queen one day as President of the United States!” he remarked.
*****At least she’s smarter than Joe Biden. But then.. everyone is!!!
******Her victimhood will work with about 40% of the electorate!!!
******We’re just guessing, but we think Meghan may be buying her own B.S.!!!!

Britney Spears May Get Stuck With Legal Bill

Britney Spears’ court battle with her dad is getting expensive — and he wants her to foot the bill for it.  Jamie Spears has filed legal papers seeking to have the “Toxic” singer’s estate pay more than $3 million in legal fees — including nearly $2 million to his own lawyers, who are working to keep the 39-year-old’s conservatorship in place, according to documents.  “If approved by the judge, this money would come from Britney’s estate, meaning she essentially would be paying her own father’s lawyers to fight her in court,” a source close to Britney says.  The $3 million being requested by the elder Spears is for services rendered between November 2019 and February 2021.  In his petition, Jamie requested to continue receiving $16,000 per month for his role as co-conservator of the estate as well as $2,000 per month for an office space, equating to $288,000 for the 16-month period.  He also asked that his attorneys at Freeman, Freeman & Smiley LLP and Holland & Knight receive $574,625 and $893,751, respectively.
*********As Thomas Markle once said, “It’s time to look after daddy!!!”
*****He’d better get it now, because these other people in Brit’s life may strip her like locusts in a cornfield!!!

Alexandra & Keanu:  Slow and Steady-(Us Weekly)

They’ve quietly been together for over three years but Keanu Reeves and girlfriend Alexandra Grant-who were spotted together during a rate date night with pals in Beverly Hills on March 13-are in no rush to wed!  “They’ve both been in serious relationships before, so they’re content just being with each other,” a source says of the actor, 56, and artist, 47.  However, that doesn’t mean marriage is off the table:  Adds the source, “They’re head over heels for each other.”

ARods’ Promise To JLo-(Star)

After Alex Rodriguez and Jennifer Lopez dialed back news of a split, the baseball great, dogged by rumors of a fling with reality star Madison LeCroy, was ready to grovel.  Days after the pair admitted they were “working through” issues, the 45-year-old flew to the Dominican Republic-where the 51-year-old is filming Shotgun Wedding-to do whatever it took.  “Alex told her he’ll get therapy,” a source says.  “He’s bending over backwards to please her.”  (It seems his tactics worked:  The two were spotted kissing on the singer’s balcony in the DR March 17.)  Still, the insider insists Jennifer’s making Alex sweat to win her trust back-and as for their pending nuptials, they’re TBD, for now.  “Jennifer wants to see some changes,” adds the confidant.  “And fast.”

Last time I danced-

Last night my son [Henry, 12] and I were both feeling sad, so I turned on “Love’s in Need of Love Today.”  I was about to get tearful, but I was like, “Nobody cries at Stevie Wonder.  Dance!”

Last fashion disaster-

I would say having worn sweatpants for a year is the biggest one of my life.  I’m going to have a ceremonial burning as soon as we all get vaccinated.

Last time I stayed up too late-

My son and I put on a movie, and it was suddenly 1:30 in the morning.  I said, “Oh, my God, we should go to bed!”  And he said, “We should make hot chocolate!”  So we did-and it felt like we were the only two people in the world.

Loser of the week-(In Touch)

The star’s show, World of Dance, is canceled by NBC just days after she reportedly split from fiancé Alex Rodriguez.



Moose Ends Up In Swimming Pool

A moose on the loose in a Quebec city went for a run through a residential neighborhood and ended up swimming in a resident’s backyard pool.  Residents in Sherbrooke said the moose was spotted wandering through a residential neighborhood Tuesday morning and police received a report about an hour after the first sighting that the moose had fallen into a resident’s backyard pool and appeared unable to climb out on its own.  Eight police officers and four wildlife agents responded to the home to conduct a rescue that took just under an hour.  See the video HERE.
********Everyone was happy.. except for the guy who had to clean the moose hair out of the pool filter!!
*****The owner said, “What is that moose doing in my pool??” The cop said: “I think it’s the breast stroke!!”
*******In Canada, most people have a moose instead of a dog!! (you might want to fact check that)

Fat Cat Gets Stuck In Chimney

A Washington state woman said her 19-pound cat was missing for 28 days before being found in a place she never considered the portly feline could fit — her neighbor’s chimney.  Caitlyn Wertenberger said the house next door to her Union Gap home was vacant and under construction when Piper, her 19-pound tuxedo cat, went missing from her house.  She said she put up flyers and searched the area, but there was no sign of Piper.  She said that 28 days later, after her new neighbors had moved into the home, one of them told her they had been hearing meowing inside their home for about five days.  The neighbors invited Wertenberger to come search their home, and she found the cat stuck in the fireplace damper.  “She’s a big cat, I didn’t think she could fit down a chimney,” Wertenberger told KEPR-TV. “I didn’t want to get my hopes up too much — it was always kind of in my head that possibly she wasn’t coming back but I still had that feeling that she wasn’t really gone yet.”
********She was in here for a month??? She started with nine lives.. and she’s only got one left!!
TOPIC: Stupid places your pet got stuck!! (no gerbils)

Big Money Found In Goodwill Donation

An employee sorting donations at a Goodwill thrift store in Oklahoma made a surprising discovery — $42,000 cash wrapped between two sweaters.  Andrea Lessing, who only recently started work at the Goodwill store in Norman, said she was sorting through a pile of donations when she felt an odd lump wrapped up in two sweaters.  Lessing said she thought the lump felt like books, but discovered stacks of cash.  “My first thought was that it was fake. We’ve seen $5 and $20 donated here and there, but never in my life had I seen that much money,” Lessing told CNN.  Lessing handed in her discovery to supervisors, who were able to find identifying documents among the cash that allowed them to contact the money’s owner.
********She probably thought it was a test!! It was.. and she failed!!
*******Oops!! Finders keepers!!!
TOPIC: Ever hide money… then forget about it???

Naked Woman Pulled From Storm Drain

The naked Florida woman who rescuers pulled out of a storm drain Tuesday had been missing for three weeks, according to local reports.  Authorities said a passerby called 911 after hearing 43-year-old Lyndsey Kennedy calling for help from within an 8-foot pit at about 9 a.m. in Delray Beach.  Police and firefighters removed the cap, lowered a ladder and harness and pulled her to safety – while holding up a white sheet to protect the nude woman’s privacy.  She was seen with dirt on her feet and scraped knees, and authorities said she was so weak she couldn’t stand on her own. They took her to a nearby hospital.  “She was lucky,” Delray Beach Fire Rescue spokesperson Dani Moschella told the Sun   entinel Tuesday. “I don’t know how much longer she would have been OK down there. The idea that somebody might be down there for any length of time is disturbing. It’s dirty, dangerous, there’s snakes, rats, garbage, dirt and leaves, anything that’s on the street that washes into a sewer, and it smells terrible.”  She had been missing since March 3, although authorities were not sure how much of that time she’d spent in the pit.  She told investigators that she became trapped after exploring a tunnel she found while swimming in a canal near the boyfriend’s home. After several turns in the tunnel system, she told police, she became lost.
********Now she knows how a proctologist feels!!!
*****The rats and snakes threw her a goodbye party!!
*******Do NOT search for!!!! (kidding.. we didn’t find a porno site!! Dang!!)







10 Budgeting Apps for Couples that Make It Easy to Share Finances

The Penny Hoarder

  1. EveryDollar

Cost: Free, or premium version for $129.99 annually

EveryDollar was created by financial guru Dave Ramsey. If you and your partner are fans of Ramsey’s favorite money management method, the zero-based budget, this app will be right up your alley.

That doesn’t mean you’d have to abandon your 50/30/20 budget if that’s what you prefer. You can customize the budget template to fit what works for you.

This budgeting app is known for providing great user experience without a bunch of distracting ads. If you opt into the premium version Ramsey Plus), you get automatic syncing to your bank account — which the free version does not provide — and access to Ramsey’s Financial Peace University.


  1. Goodbudget

Cost: Free, or premium version for $60 annually or $7 monthly

Goodbudget is for couples who like the cash envelope system but are ready to stop carrying cash everywhere.

This app uses virtual envelopes for your various spending categories. If you’re using the free version, you get a total of 20 envelopes. The paid version allows you unlimited envelopes.

Another difference between the two versions: You can only use the app on two devices with the free version; whereas with the paid version, you can use up to five devices.

Both versions include a debt-tracking feature so you and your other half can see your collective progress on paying off credit cards and student loans.

With Goodbudget, you’ll need to be comfortable manually updating your envelopes when you make purchases or uploading your transaction history from your bank. The app does not sync to bank accounts to track spending in real time.


  1. Honeydue

Cost: Free

Honeydue helps you and your partner stay on the same page when it comes to money. Not only can you track spending and saving through bank account transactions, but you can link accounts for loans and investments to collectively manage debt and save for the future.

Like its name implies, Honeydue has a feature that reminds you and your honey when bills are due. You can also chat with your partner directly in the app about all things financial.


  1. Honeyfi

Cost: $60 annually

Honeyfi syncs your bank accounts and creates a budget based on your past spending. But if you’re trying to up your savings and cut down on your Uber eats, you can customize your budget to reflect how you want it to be.

To encourage money convos, Honeyfi lets you send in-app communication to your partner. You can nag them about overspending at happy hour or ask if they picked up laundry detergent during their Target run. If you want to keep some spending incognito though, Honeyfi allows you to limit what your other half can see.

This couples’ budgeting app can help with your savings goals, like putting aside money for a wedding. You can set savings rules and authorize Honeyfi to pull a certain percentage or a set amount from your checking accounts each month.


  1. Mint by Intuit

Cost: Free

Mint has been around for over a decade and is a very popular app. You and your other half can get on budget together by syncing your bank accounts and creating as many spending categories as you’d like.

Mint sends you reminders about upcoming bills so you and your partner stay on top of paying everything on time. It’ll also alert you when you’re low on funds.

One downside of this app, however, is that it can feel a bit cluttered with ads and offers — a common criticism of free apps.


  1. Mvelopes

Cost: Tiered plans priced at $5.97 a month, $9.97 a month and $19.97 a month

Mvelopes is another budgeting app that brings the cash envelope system to the digital world. You link your bank account and create virtual envelopes based on how much you want to spend in different categories.

If you and your partner need to stick to a strict grocery budget or curb what you spend on entertainment, you can easily tell how much you have left to spend for the month in each budget category.

With the Mvelopes app, there are three different plans you can sign up for. The cheapest, Mvelopes Basic, allows you to set up your envelope budget, monitor account balances, get interactive reports and access live chat support.

Mvelopes Premier adds perks like debt reduction tools and access to the Mvelopes Learning Center. The premium Mvelopes Plus includes a personalized financial plan and quarterly sessions with a money coach.


  1. Personal Capital

Cost: Free

Personal Capital is for the couple that’s serious about their future together — particularly their financial future.

In addition to keeping tabs on your day-to-day spending, the app links to your 401(k)s and IRAs so you can see how you’re tracking toward retirement. It even offers a free retirement planner tool.

Personal Capital also factors in financial information like your mortgage and other loans to give you a complete picture of your net worth.

Though the app is free, Personal Capital makes its money by offering wealth management services, like sessions with their financial advisors where you’ll be charged a percentage of your portfolio.


  1. PocketGuard

Cost: Free, or premium version for $34.99 annually or $4.99 monthly

PocketGuard syncs your bank accounts, credit cards, loans and investments so you and your partner get an overall view of your shared finances. It automatically builds your budget based on your income, recurring bills and financial goals you’ve set.

The app has an “in my pocket” feature, which lets you know how much is available to spend on date night after covering household bills and other obligations. PocketGuard also digs through your expenses to identify savings and ways to improve your finances.

The premium version — PocketGuard Plus — includes additional features like customized spending categories and ways to track cash purchases.


  1. You Need a Budget

Cost: $84 annually or $11.99 monthly

You Need a Budget, or YNAB, is for couples who want to stay on top of every dollar they make and make sure that money is going to good use.

This app is set up around the zero-based budgeting method and is designed to help you and your significant other save money and get out of debt. YNAB identifies areas of overspending and gives you suggestions on how to adjust. It also makes recommendations for your budget based on your goals.

You can access this budgeting tool from almost any device — including your Apple watch or Amazon Echo. With YNAB, you’ll never have an excuse not to pull up your budget.


  1. Zeta

Cost: Free

Zeta is touted as a budgeting app specifically for couples. It’s set up so you can manage shared and individual accounts together, but you’re in control of what information you want your partner to see.

You can sync your bank accounts or choose to manually update your budget. If you want to leave a note for your significant other about a questionable transaction, you can do that within the app. Zeta also has a split transactions feature so you can get your other half to pay you back for household bills.

When it comes to planning a vacation or saving for a house, Zeta has a section for money goals so you can stay on track.
