People having money
OK, maybe we’re not enjoying that that much. But while the rest of the world bring last night’s leftovers into work in a Tupperware box to heat up in the microwave, it’s good to see that the rich really have got richer this week and rubbed our lowly dumbass noses in it.
Well done, lovely lady for out-selling Michael Jackson’s Thriller. And without the aid of one glittery glove, one 15 minute zombie video or one rumour about being cryogenically frozen. But please can we stop Rolling In The Deep now. We actually think we’re done.
Someone still has £74 million in the bank to buy a painting: Munch’s The Scream to be precise. What’s more it’s one of four, so it’s not like it’s even a one-off. WTF? We can’t help but think if we were to have a spare £74 million, we’d be more likely to spend it on some kind of hot lady dancing around in close proximity to us than on some bald-headed freak on a bridge. No wonder they want to remain anonymous.
Facebook has set the share price for its upcoming initial public offering (IPO) at between $28 and $35 per share – we don’t quite understand what that means, but we hear the company is therefore valued at between $85billion-$95billion. Maybe we all need to think about that the next time we upload a picture of tanning booth mom as our status update.
From of off boy band Blue almost did jury duty this week. Let’s just wonder what this says about our judicial system here in the UK for a minute…
Or maybe, you’d like to think about whether you’d like Lee Ryan sitting on the jury judging you? Not convinced? Well, apparently our hero tweeted: ‘Jury service!! Feel like I’m back at school!’ Anyway, that’s probably more interesting than ‘new single out next week’.
However, we were sadly reprieved from source of comedy when the judge asked him to stand down. Boo.
Tanning booth mom
And we can’t help but
go back to American tanning booth mom Patricia Krentcil! Apparently, she has pleaded not guilty in court to a charge of child endangerment for allegedly allowing her five-year-old daughter into a tanning booth.
We don’t know what’s upset us more about this story, but surely if you want a living embodiment of Munch’s The Scream for the 21st Century, Patricia Krentcil is pretty much it.
