Spring break should be fun. Not deadly.

The dismembered bodies of four men have reportedly been discovered at a busy Spring Break hotspot.

The grim find happened today (Thursday, March 24) in Mexico, leading to the National Guard being called in.

The grim news has been reported by local Mexican news outlet Noticaribe, and took place in the popular party district of Villas del Sol, Playa del Carmen at the height of the popular celebration.

The bodies were only discovered when a group of sanitation workers stumbled across them.

It is thought that all four of the victims were male.

As of yet, no local Mexican officials have commented on the distressing news.

Can you imagine if any of Trump's kids were anything like Pudding Head's surviving son?

Former War Room Co-Host Jack Maxey who is currently in Switzerland has done a forensic review of the Hunter Biden laptop from Hell, and discovered hundreds of thousands of emails previously not discovered by anyone, as they were hidden on the hard drive.

Six hours ago Maxey released all of the emails detailing Hunter Biden and the Biden Family’s interaction with the development of bio laboratories in Ukraine.

The Daily Mail released a few today; but, only a few.

But emails from Hunter’s abandoned laptop show he helped secure millions of dollars of funding for Metabiota, a Department of Defense contractor specializing in research on pandemic-causing diseases that could be used as bioweapons, wrote The Daily Mail.

We were told by this current administration unelected regime there would be Transparency! Bull Shit!!!!

The State Department is being sued by a government watchdog group after the department said they would not be able to fulfill a documents request involving presidential climate envoy John Kerry’s office until after the next presidential election in 2024.

Protect the Public’s Trust (PPT), a government watchdog, filed the transparency suit against the State Department on Wednesday after the department said they wouldn’t be able to fulfill the group’s Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request on Kerry’s office until Nov. 18, 2024.

This means that the State Department said they cannot fulfill the request until after the next presidential election.

In the event that you travel to China. You will not be able to watch any John Wick movies in your hotel room. Keanu Reeves is persona non grata.

Actor Keanu Reeves may now be kaput in China, despite his past close collaboration with its film authorities and decades of mega-stardom spanning the length of the country’s engagement with Hollywood.

In the wake of his show of support for Tibet earlier this month, the “John Wick” and “Matrix” star has fallen afoul of the country’s strict censorship regime, placing his future career in the world’s largest film market in jeopardy.

No word from that stellar scholar douchebag LeBron James.

When you hear the name Applebee's what do you think of? No, not chemjeff. What an average restaurant with snobbery.

According to leaked emails, Applebee’s franchise executive Wayne Pankratz was enthusiastic about skyrocketing gas prices and encouraged his locations to lower their wages. Everyone has heard that gas prices continue to rise,” read an email that came from the account of Wayne Pankratz, executive director of operations for Applebee’s franchisee Apple Central LLC. “The advantage this has for us is that it will increase application flow and has the potential to lower our average wage. How you ask?”

Pankratz told managers that the pool of people who work at Applebee’s “live paycheck to paycheck” and will be “forced back into the workforce” out of necessity. Pankratz also seemed pleased that skyrocketing gas prices would sting for competitors, and that if Applebee’s could cut wage costs, they would be better positioned. “We all competed to hire out of the limited applicant pool and there was a wage war,” he wrote in the March 9 memo. “They will no longer be able to afford to do this.”

Why don't you melt those 2 Oscars, cast bullets and go to Ukraine and use them. Most people don't give a flying rat's a$$ about you or your awards.

This year’s Academy Awards promise to be more chaotic than usual, which is saying something. There’s been brouhaha over atypical host choices and awards that won’t be televised live. There’s also the matter of how they’ll deal with the ongoing Russian invasion of Ukraine. Co-host Amy Schumer has tried to get Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky to take time out of defending his nation to make an appearance. And if that doesn’t happen, there’s one Oscar-winner who will be peeved.

As per Deadline, Sean Penn — who’s been nominated five times and won twice, for Mystic River and Milk — has given the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences an ultimatum: get Zelensky on the Oscars or else he will publicly destroy his two trophies.

Old enough to know better. But, young enough not to care. Genius Award Winner.

MARCH 24--Since some citizens remain confused about the proper use of the 911 system, a reminder: Do not call the police emergency line if you have encountered a chicken difficulty at KFC.

On Tuesday evening, Lisa Castro called 911 to report being “upset because she only got 4 pieces of chicken instead of 8,” and that the manager of a KFC in suburban Cleveland, Ohio “won’t give her the rest of the chicken.”

The 62-year-old Castro, who lives about two miles from the KFC in Euclid, asked for an officer to be dispatched to the restaurant, saying she would be waiting in a Dodge SUV.

Most of the athletes enjoy the buzz of the crowd. Not this one. Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

Crowd Goes Silent So Blind Basketball Player Can Hear The Hoop

Jules Hoogland is completely blind. During a basketball game this week, the entire crowd stayed silent so Jules could hear where to throw.

She definitely heard the cheers, too.

"That's my daughter! I'm so proud of her and all her accomplishments! Zeeland Public Schools has stood beside my daughter and encouraged her all her years in school. Thank you ZPS!!" Karen Hoogland said.
