Kid Runs On Set And Appears To Fart At TV Weatherman On The Air

They don’t teach you how to deal with this in meteorology class.

TV weatherman Patrick Ellis of Mississippi’s WLBT does his best to roll with a boy who invades the set and apparently blasts a fart at him, Thrillist reported. Before he is pulled off the stage during Saturday’s newscast, the kid gives his own forecast, saying “there are farts everywhere and toots.”

What does one wear for toots? Does London Fog make that kind of outerwear?

Anyway, props to Ellis for keeping his cool. He certainly discovered why the W.C. Fields-credited warning about working with kids and dogs (and farts?) holds true.

I had my own viral moment last night; all I’m going to say is watch out for the ‘toots’ across central Mississippi,” he wrote on Facebook.

The boy is the son of a lawyer who was scheduled to appear on an attorney Continue reading "Kid Runs On Set And Appears To Fart At TV Weatherman On The Air"

A Reporter In Heels Just Ran The Most Impressive 40 At NFL Combine

She’s fast and fashionable.
Tori Petry, a reporter for the Detroit Lions’ website, ran a 40-yard dash at the NFL Scouting Combine in 5.98 seconds ... in heels.

OK, so her time doesn’t rival John Ross’s new record of 4.22 (watch above) but it is outstanding given her footwear.
Perhaps Petry’s feat, accomplished Saturday at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, will take the heat off Bryce Dallas Howard. The actress was mocked for trying to run from dinosaurs while she wore heels in 2015’s “Jurassic World.”

According to For The Win, Petry beat the time of 2011 combine participant Isaiah Thompson, a former University of Houston Continue reading "A Reporter In Heels Just Ran The Most Impressive 40 At NFL Combine"

Fox News Host Brenda Buttner Dies At Age 55

Longtime Fox News journalist Brenda Buttner has died.
Buttner, a business correspondent and host of “Bulls & Bears,” died of cancer on Monday, according to reports. She was 55.
The Harvard grad and Rhodes Scholar joined Fox News in 2000 after hosting CNBC’s “The Money Club.” She began her career at an NBC affliate in Reno, Nevada.
Fox News host Neil Cavuto of “Your World” honored Buttner on the air Monday, calling her “unflappable.” “Brenda Buttner made us want to watch a business show with heart ― her heart,” he said in the clip below.
Cavuto noted that Buttner once said that being female gave her an advantage in personal finance because women aren’t afraid to admit when they don’t know something. “Women realize there is no such thing as a stupid question when it comes to understanding an investment,” Buttner told the Sun-Sentinel.  

Here are Continue reading "Fox News Host Brenda Buttner Dies At Age 55"

LeBron James Gives Charles Barkley A Savage Verbal Beatdown

In your face, Charles Barkley.
LeBron James ripped into the TNT analyst after enduring more criticism from him.
Reacting to Barkley’s recent comments that James was being “whiny” and lacking competitive fire for declaring the Cavaliers need to obtain more personnel to win a second title (watch above), the Cleveland superstar snapped Monday night. He called Barkley a “hater” and questioned his credibility.
I’m not going to let him disrespect my legacy like that,” James told ESPN on Monday after the defending NBA champs lost to the Dallas Mavericks, 104-97. “I’m not the one who threw somebody through a window. I never spit on a kid. I never had unpaid debt in Las Vegas. I never said, ‘I’m not a role model.’ I never showed up to All-Star Weekend Continue reading "LeBron James Gives Charles Barkley A Savage Verbal Beatdown"

Sage Steele Gets Justifiably Roasted For Complaining About Airport Protests

Social media users blasted ESPN commentator Sage Steele for being a bad sport after she complained that Sunday’s LAX protest against Donald Trump’s travel ban inconvenienced her.
Steele was attempting to catch a flight from Los Angeles to Houston, the site of the Super Bowl. She wrote that the demonstration made her and other passengers miss the flight, and said she was sad because protesters wore joyful expressions knowing that they had interrupted everyone’s plans.

Stacey Dash’s Ouster From Fox News Delights Twitter

Perhaps Fox News got a clue about “Clueless” sidekick Stacey Dash.
The network opted not to renew Dash’s contract, which is why the actress-turned-commentator has been off the air since September, the Hollywood Reporter confirmed in a report on Sunday.

Dash began offering right-wing commentary for Fox News in 2014, but was suspended briefly the following year for using profanity during an on-air tirade about President Barack Obama.
All the while Dash has generated controversy with her views. She called the fight for transgender bathroom rights “tyranny by the majority.” She said there should be no Black History Month because there isn’t a white history month. And she caused a stir by trolling the Pulse nightclub tragedy with a Donald Trump endorsement.
Needless to say, a chunk of Continue reading "Stacey Dash’s Ouster From Fox News Delights Twitter"
