    Social media is abuzz with the hashtag #millennialclassicrock, a game in which Twitter users update the lyrics of famous classic rock songs to reflect the sensibilities of a younger generation. Fans got clever, with puns, rhymes and other modern twists on classic rock lyrics that ran the gamut but focused largely on topics like technology, the economy and social interactions. The tweets put bands like Queen, Blue Oyster Cult and the Police in the spotlight.

    PINE BLUFF, Ark. — Authorities say an Arkansas thief tried to pay for a meal using a credit card that had been stolen from the waitress herself days earlier. Police spokesman Lt. David De Foor said in a news release that officers arrested 21-year-old Shamon West on Tuesday at Shannon’s Restaurant in Pine Bluff. He said that, “having no desire to pay for the fellow’s meal,” waitress Flora Lunsford called to report that the man had tried paying for his meal with her stolen credit card. De Foor says officers found other items on West that had been in Lunsford’s...

    Phillie Phanatic's hot dog cannon is synomous with Phillies games. But the Phanatic's flying meat mobile helped injure one fan at Monday's game. Kathy McVay was sitting behind home plate when she got hit between the eyes with a hot dog from Phanatic's cannon, according to Philadelphia 6ABC. McVay had a shoulder injury, so she wasn't able to catch or deflect the dog. "It just came out of nowhere. And hard," she said.
  • Beer may lack fizz in Europe amid carbon dioxide shortage

    LONDON (AP) — No beer at this time of year? A British trade group says there’s a shortage of carbon dioxide in Northern Europe, sparking fears that drinks may lack fizz just as thirsty soccer fans fill pubs for the World Cup. Gavin Partington, director-general of the British Soft Drinks Association, says the shortage is due to the closure of several production sites for various reasons, including seasonal maintenance. But industry publication Gasworld says the situation is worse this year because normal maintenance has coincided with technical issues at chemical plants that also produce carbon dioxide.

    Politico ^ | June 19th, 2018 | By RACHAEL BADE
    President Donald Trump heads to Capitol Hill Tuesday evening to rally House Republicans behind an immigration bill he panned just five days ago. Now Republicans have to decide: Which Trump do they believe? Speaker Paul Ryan and his top lieutenants are well aware that only the president can give conservatives cover to vote for a bill that includes a pathway to citizenship for Dreamers — a huge leap for those who once dismissed that idea as “amnesty.” It’s why leadership invited Trump for a rare meeting with the entire Republican conference, just days after he indicated he might veto the...

    His name was Bubba, he was from Mississippi ... And he had a problem.... So... He walked into a bank in New York City and asked for the loan Officer. He told the loan officer that he was going to Paris for an International redneck festival for two weeks and needed to borrow $5,000; and that he was not a depositor of the bank. The bank officer told him that the bank would need some form of security for the loan, so the Redneck handed over the keys to a new Ferrari. The car was parked on the street in...

    The bitter divorce battle between billionaire bond king Bill Gross and his ex-wife is beginning to stink — like vomit, flatulence and dead fish. The California moneyman, who lost his beloved 13,819-square-foot Laguna Beach home to his ex-wife in the breakup, used foul-smelling sprays to leave the place a stinking mess — and placed dead fish in the air vents, a “disgusted” Sue Gross claimed in court papers last week. Mrs. Gross, who won a temporary restraining order against Bill last week, has the evidence of his foul play — empty spray bottles in the trash cans... In addition, security...

    Porno height=450 graphic actress Stormy Daniels is suing her former attorney in a bid to explain away the fact that she once denied ever having an affair with President Donald Trump. Daniels’ case, championed by CNN and the mainstream media, is falling apart due to Daniels’ shifting stories, and a steady stream of bombshell revelations about the behavior of her attorney Michael Avenatti, a former Democratic opposition researcher for Rahm Emanuel and Joe Biden who was reportedly trying to get a cable debate show for himself with Anthony Scaramucci. Now, Stormy Daniels is storming at her previous lawyer Keith...

    Tesla released its first-quarter earnings report on Wednesday, and hinted at when the $35,000 base model of its Model 3 sedan will become available. In the report, Tesla said it expects to start making around 5,000 Model 3 vehicles per week "in about two months," so around July. After the company reaches that threshold, it said it will make new options available to Model 3 customers. "After achieving a production rate of 5,000 per week, we will begin offering new options such as all-wheel-drive and the base model with a standard-sized battery pack," the company said. Tesla states on its...

I've had some problems with my swing, but I think I've got that right now." Stevie: "I always find that when my swing goes wrong, I need to stop playing for a while and not think about it. Then the next time I play, it seems to be all right." Surprised, Tiger says, "You play GOLF?!!" Stevie: "Yes, I've been playing for years." Tiger: "But -- you're...
