Turning with a smile, Holly shrieked: "I"m hiding", while the rain jumped off …

Bill Maher says fury over his Stan Lee comments proves his point about our "dumb f**king culture"

HBO late-night host Bill Maher angered many in the comic book community this week with a blog post about the reaction to Stan Lee’s death.“The guy who created Spider-Man and the Hulk has died, and America is in mourning. Deep, deep mourning for a man who inspired millions to, I don’t know, watch a movie, I guess,” he began the post.It quickly sparked backlash, and Maher clarified his comments while doubling down on them in an interview with Larry King on Wednesday.“Talk about making my point for me,” Maher said. “Yeah, I don’t know very much about Stan Lee and it certainly wasn’t a swipe at Stan Lee…I am agnostic on Stan Lee. I don’t read comic books. I didn’t even read them when I was a child. “What I was saying is: A culture that thinks that comic books and comic book movies are profound meditations on the human condition is a dumb f—ing culture. And for people to, like, get mad at that just proves my point.”Watch moreMaher added that he was slow to pick up on the reaction to his po…

Column: When a Stable Genius Leads a Stupid Country

WashingtonPresident Donald Trump is surrounded by fools.There’s that fool William H. McRaven, Special Operations commander of the raid that killed Osama bin Laden, and the other fools in the U.S. military, who should have brought down bin Laden “a lot sooner,” because “everybody in Pakistan” — all 208 million of them — knew the terrorist leader was living in “a nice mansion.” Trump alone “predicted Osama bin Laden” in 2000 when “nobody really knew who he was.” (Were they waiting for Trump to give them bin Laden’s ZIP code plus four?)There are the fools in the CIA, who have concluded based on so-called evidence that Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman ordered last month’s killing of Washington Post contributor Jamal Khashoggi. But Trump alone understands that we’ll never know the truth, because the crown prince denied involvement “maybe five different times.”There’s that fool Chris Wallace at Fox News, who didn’t understand why Trump skipped Arlington National Cemetery on the Monday…

Lighthearted wedding invitation rubs recipient the wrong way

DEAR ABBY: We received a wedding invitation in the mail today from my husband’s nephew. First of all, we are to RSVP by tomorrow. (WHAT?)Here are our options in responding:Gladly attendRegretfully declineResentfully attendEnthusiastically declineI’ll surprise youThe invitation also asked which song we’d like “blasted over our awkward small talk.” Granted, there is some animosity among the groom’s father’s siblings, but I think this is rude, sarcastic and inappropriate. I have a sense of humor but do not find this funny. Am I off the mark? — INSULTED GUEST IN THE MIDWESTDEAR GUEST: Obviously, you and your husband would have preferred a more formal — and possibly more timely — invitation. Considering the sorry state of family relations on the groom’s side, the wording may have been an attempt at humor. It may also have been sincere. If you cannot GLADLY attend, rather than fume, send your regrets.DEAR ABBY: We don’t care much for the wife of one of our new neighbors. The husband is nice…

Holiday movies at home

If leaving the house to see “Ralph Breaks the Internet” is too much trouble, try renting some of these films, watching them on-demand or pulling them out of your DVD collection:“Planes, Trains and Automobiles” (1987) — This laugh-out-loud comedy follows uptight businessman Steve Martin and goofy John Candy, forced together on a cross-country odyssey at Thanksgiving. This is the rare road movie that works. Rated R for profanity.“Arthur Christmas” (2011) — In this fast-paced and family-friendly film, Santa’s son, Arthur, must save Christmas by taking a long journey to deliver that last gift. Rated PG.“Disney’s A Christmas Carol” (2009) — Jim Carrey plays Scrooge in this animated version of the story. He also plays the three ghosts who haunt Scrooge. Be warned, however, that this 3-D film was produced through the process of performance capture, a technique director Robert Zemeckis previously used in his film “The Polar Express” (2004). Some folks love this effect; we find it creepy. Rate…

Fallout 76 Fake Accolades Trailer Is Very Funny If It Wasn"t So Sad

There’s isn’t a Fallout 76 accolades trailer. Well, not an official one. Despite our own reviewer actually enjoying Bethesda’s new approach to the series, many didn’t.Right now, the average review rating on Metacritic stands at a lowly 50%, while the user rating stands at 2.7 out of 10. Many Fallout 76 reviews across the web berated the developer’s latest RPG, with some describing it as “empty”, “disappointing” and “soulless”.
Unsurprisingly, we’ve yet to see an accolades trailer, though there is an unofficial one. We shouldn’t laugh as we personally don’t think it’s anywhere near as bad as people are making out, but it is quite funny, albeit quite sad that the Fallout series has found itself in this position.

UK weather: the funniest tweets as the first snow of winter hits Britain

Here are some of the funniest twitter reactions to snow on the streets (and fields) of Britain.
People were stunned to see snow settling as far south as the English Channel…

Snow alert! Thanks to Kelsie for sharing this photo of the #snow in Ventnor earlier tonight. This is snow joke… it’s actually been snowing on the #IsleofWight! ❄️

"Romaine" calm: Funny and meaningful memes to "lettuce" get through this recall


This cabinet of clowns isn"t funny – but it"s made Britain a joke

We’ve all experienced that immediate panic after saying something stupid. The hot rush of shame pumps through our bodies and we are gripped by the forlorn hope that we could rewind time. The claustrophobic fear that we are forever diminished in the eyes of those who witnessed our stupidity causes genuine panic. We are convinced that this is a moment from which we will never recover.
Reading this may trigger you into remembering some daft thing you once said at a party or in a meeting. Imagine for a second not that you would never do this again but that, when you did, you would feel none of the usual shame and embarrassment. Now you know how it feels to be one of Theresa May’s cabinet ministers. The glut of ignorance we’ve had to suffer recently has highlighted a major problem: we are being led by people who don’t know what they are on about and are unabashed about admitting it in public. If ignorance were an energy source, you could power the country purely on former Brexit secretaries…
