Bounty-hunt on for actress who bit Bey

During this time of tumultuous questions of gun reform, Facebook security, and the Russian nerve-agent crisis, there is one question that has the U.S. truly rattled: Who bit Beyonce? Actress, Tiffany Haddish, in an interview for magazine GQ, divulged the secrets of what is now hilariously dubbed as “Bite-gate.” 

An undisclosed actress, that has not and will not be named, is the credited suspect in this heinous attack on Queen Bey at a party last December. Naturally, there are conspiracy theories and finger-pointing in the light of this act calling out names of other party attendees and possible biters, such as actresses Sara Foster and Sanaa Lathan, and none other than Rihanna. We may never truly know who bit Bey, but this goose-chase has surely brought some seriousness to this other non-influential time.



President Trump rigs Roseanne resurrection

Nick-@-Nite(rs) rejoice! The comeback of the hit sitcom, Roseanne, aired on March 27, 2018. With ratings that were quite literally through-the-roof, the show has made its impact on both the returning watchers and the Roseanne newbies. But the most avid watcher, you may ask, was none other than our president, Donald Trump.

 After confirming his call to actress, Roseanne Barr, Trump took to the phone to personally congratulate her on her 18 million viewer debut, rather than his most famous and most beloved form of communication, a tweet. During this phone call, however, we learn that the sole reason for the success of Roseanne was not the great writing or the resurrection of a beloved American classic, but his own role in the show and his supporters. Who knew our president was a jack of all trades? From being accused of fixing an election to taking credit for fixing a TV premiere, I don’t know how he gets any legislating done!
