If the streets of London are silent and all the shades are drawn this weekend, it isn’t just because the U.K. are in mourning that Victoria Beckham isn’t going to be reuniting with the Spice Girls. THE QUEEN has loved her corgis about as much as she’s loved making everyone’s butt pucker when they stepped foot inside Buckingham Palace. A few years back, sources close to her said she was going to stop breeding the dogs since she’s getting up there (she’s 92, but I tell myself she’ll go to 175 if it means keeping Prince Charles off the throne), and none of the youngins in line for the throne like the yappy dogs. Duchess Meghan apparently got along with them, but it is too little too late – the last of the royal corgis has passed away! Continue reading
The legion of die-hard McRib lovers should prepare their hearts. No really, you better warn your heart that it’s about to feel like it’s in a really tight choke-hold with a bicep made entirely of sodium and BBQ sauce. But that’s just a minor inconvenience, and I’m sure your heart (and butt) will gladly take one for the team.
USA Today reports the second best news that could come from McDonald’s (the first being that they’re doing God’s work by bringing back McPizza). Just like it has been for decades, the McRib is coming back for a limited time. McDonald’s announced yesterday that the McRib will make its return to more than 9,000 US restaurants, starting immediately.
The last time the McRib saw the light of day was November 2017. So if you haven’t caught on yet, the McRib is clearly an autumnal delight.
In case you’ve never bit into a McRib, it’s a sandwich that was introduced back in 1981. It’s made of a bun, pickles, onions, BBQ sauce, and a pork patty so questionable in shape and texture you’ll be convinced it’s Grimace meat. I’ve only ever had one, because Canada doesn’t really do the McRib. But it’s a great time to bring it back in the US. The midterm elections are less than two weeks away, and what better way to eat your stress than through two to three McRibs on voting day? At the very least, it will reassure and calm you to know that nobody is making a worse decision than you already are.
Only Tilda Swinton could post a 6-minute long video of her dogs on the internet and have it be dubbed high art. I mean sure, she appears to have used a very nice camera and scored it with an opera by Handel, but a dog video is a dog video. But it’s Tilda so it must be art! I have a feeling that if I posted a 6-minute video of my cat licking his pecker and set to “The Magic Flute”, I’d get flagged for content violation.
It’s not all shrimp on the Barbie and Kylie Minogue sing-offs during the Australian (and other places) royal tour of Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan (seen above cosplaying as Sarah Jessica Parker in Oscar de la Renta at the the Australian Geographic Society Gala Awards in Sydney). The two were on a chartered Qantas flight into Sydney earlier today, and they were basically at the runway when the pilot pulled a “JK, mates!” and had to abort the landing and go around for a do-over. No, it wasn’t because they saw Thomas Markle and decided to get the eff out of there. There was another plane, but Thomas might come into play when the expecting parents get back to London.
If you’re the kind of person who enjoys watching an alleged charlatan walrus judge the hell out of the guests on his show while simultaneously doubting the “doctor” title at the front of his name, well then you’re in luck today! Dr. Phil McGraw has been hosting his therapy-adjacent daytime TV show Dr. Phil since 2002, and he has extended his contract with CBS until 2023.
Tyler, The Creator claims he stayed out past his bedtime and fell asleep behind the wheel of his Tesla Model X and plowed into a parked car while on his way home from a recording session. Both Tyler’s Tesla and the other car were totaled but, according to TMZ, everybody is fine. Tyler was unhurt and the owner of the other car is stoked his property was involved in a celebrity collision.
