    The answer: Polishing their résumé. The question: How will a member of the “Jeopardy!” production team soon be spending their time? “Jeopardy!” executive producer Harry Friedman said Tuesday that he thinks he knows who’s responsible for leaking the ending of James Holzhauer’s final episode, and that “very, very, very appropriate” action will be taken. “We think we know where and who and how,” Friedman told the Washington Post, as he recounted the moment he learned on Sunday that a clip showing Holzhauer’s defeat in Monday’s episode was going viral.

    RUSH: Snerdley just asked me what was the best moment of my weekend. I had vowed not to talk about it. You know, I don’t talk about myself. All right. Let me see if I can… Look at the clock. Okay. I played golf yesterday. The people I was supposed to play with got sick and couldn’t play. So it was just me playing by myself with my caddie, which is good, because I played 27 holes in three hours, and you really get through this, and there’s no time to get down on yourself, no time to get pessimistic....

    On Monday, the ladies of "The View" spent almost five minutes seriously debating whether or not first lady Melania Trump has a body double for some public events with President Donald Trump. This #FakeMelania conspiracy theory has made the rounds on the internet but the ladies of "The View" gave it far too much credibility and air time. "The 'Fake Melania' online conspiracy is back. Some people think the first lady is using an imposter to stand in for her," Joy Behar began. "You mean there are two women that have to pretend they're listening to him?" After pulling up...

  • Wombats make cube-shaped poop, thanks to unique intestines

    11/21/2018 2:49:28 PM PST · by ETL · 69 replies ^ | Nov 20, 2018 | Frankie Schembri
    Wombats, short-legged, burrowing marsupials native to Australia, are the only animals known to produce cube-shaped feces. It’s long been speculated that wombats produce these poop bricks as a unique way of marking their territory. Now, scientists have determined the likely causes of these unusual feces are the shape and flexibility of the wombats’ intestines, National Geographic reports. Researchers inflated long balloons in the intestines of dead common wombats to measure the shape and flexibility and found two ravinelike grooves where the intestines were more elastic. These grooves could form the poop into a solid cube just before it exits the wombat, the scientists reported over the weekend at...

In a 2006 episode during season 10 of the animated series, Al Gore issues a stern warning to the students of South Park Elementary School about the “single biggest threat to our planet.” He was talking about ManBearPig, a creature meant to represent climate change... “South Park” was effectively mocking the global issue at the center of “An Inconvenient Truth.” Now, 12 years later, show creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker...

    Guns N' Roses frontman Axl Rose tore into President Trump on Sunday night for playing their music at his political rallies after they formally requested him not to. Rose took to Twitter to vent his frustrations about his music being played at Trump-associated events. "Unfortunately the Trump campaign is using loopholes in the various venues’ blanket performance licenses which were not intended for such craven political purposes, without the songwriters’ consent," Rose wrote. "Can u say “shitbags?!” Rose said that he thought it was "ironic" that Trump supporters were listening to "anti-Trump music" at his campaign rallies. "But I don’t...

    (CNN) - If you see Barbra Streisand driving on the streets of Los Angeles, you might want to get out of the way. "Late Late Show" host James Corden switched things up on Thursday night's episode of "Carpool Karaoke" by having the music legend be the one behind the wheel, while he sat in the passenger seat. Within minutes of getting into the car, Streisand told Corden that she recently had to retake her driving test in order to renew her driver's license. But the caveat is that she failed the test three times before finally receiving the green light...

Mudd became immediately enraged, going off on this epic rant: “Are you kidding me? Let me get this straight. So the President has insulted everybody from former Presidents Bush and Obama, Rex Tillerson, Jeb...
