Current Events in One Sentence (Aug. 30 - Sept 15)

Inspired by a blog that I read this summer...

MTV VMAs (Aug. 30) - How is an awards show for music videos, presented on a seemingly video-phobic channel such as MTV,  that is, let's face it, more of a reality TV show channel than a music video channel, still relevant in 2015?

Kanye West's 2020 Presidential Bid (Aug. 30) - Can you imagine all the diplomatic and foreign relationships that will be severed due to his inability to not interrupt others when they are talking?

Viral "How to Skin a Watermelon" Video (Sept. 2) - This dude had waaayyy too much time on his hands.  (See video here)

Tom Brady and Deflategate (Sept. 3) - Were tax dollars really wasted on this silly issue?

Jailed Rowan County Clerk (KY) Kim Davis (Sept. 3) - I predict that Mrs. Davis put that free time, while she was in the Carter County jail (after being found in contempt of court for failing to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples), to good use by planning the next phase of her life - book deals, speaking engagements, and the likes.

Abandoned Bengal Tiger Found Wandering in CA Neighborhood (Sept. 4) - Who in their right mind (Ding! Ding! Ding!) thinks that having a large predatory feline with very sharp teeth as a pet is a good idea?

Photo: Kim Davis' Release from Jail (Sept. 8) - She was imprisoned for all of five days and not even five whole days, yet in this photo she's acting like Nelson Mandela when he was released and he was imprisoned for 27 years!

Donald Trump's Comments Regarding Republican Presidential Candidate Carly Fiorino: "Look at that face! Would anyone vote for that? Can you imagine that, the face of our next president?" (Sept. 9) - Apparently "Mr. Comb Over" thinks that he's as pretty as the contestants in his beauty pageants.

Kim Davis Goes Back to Work and Does Not Interfere with Issuance of a Marriage License to a Same-Sex Couple (Sept. 14) - Good.

Donald Trump's President Run (ongoing) - I think my 82 year old grandmother's sentiment may be correct - "If he gets it (elected), then we all may as well shoot ourselves in the head."

Thanks for stopping by!   Happy Tuesday!
