Saturday Night Humor

***

The Saturday Night ONT strives to be fun and frivolous. The following story is serious but you folks will make it fun and frivolous.

'New and Improved': Kraft Macaroni and Cheese, and McDonald's Burgers

I was trying to think of a way to break this to you gently, but couldn’t.

We’re all adults here, so…suck it up.

They’re messing with favorites again.

And moar seriousness to be dealt with by the Horde. Can there ever be too much college football in December? Hell No!

Do You Need Proof That We Have Too Many Bowl Games?


It's the most wonderful time of the year. On top of Thanksgiving and Christmas, we have postseason college football! Conference championships take place this weekend, and then we can gear up for bowl season.
As a college football fan, I have a love-hate relationship with the number of bowl games on the calendar. On one hand, we fans have that much more college football to watch, while on the other hand, the sheer proliferation of games means that teams can have a lackluster season, finishing .500, and still receive a bowl invitation.

In 2023 (and into January 2024), there are 43 bowl games on the schedule, including the College Football Playoff semifinal games and championship game. The NCAA's dilemma this year, which I wrote about on Tuesday, was that there weren't enough teams with a 6-6 record or higher, so the NCAA had to invite three other teams to participate in bowl games.

So many cliches so little time. When I read the following story the first thing I thought of was, "Aint Karma a bitch!"

Inside The Demise Of Troy Leon Gregg, The Man Who Escaped Death Row Before Being Murdered That Very Night

The night before he was to be executed in July 1980, Troy Leon Gregg broke out of Georgia State Prison — only to die in a bar fight just a few hours later.

Do you have a special set of skills? Maybe that extraterrestrial encounter you had was important.

Humans who claimed to have had close encounters with UFOs developed extraordinary artistic talents afterwards, according to a former US defence department counter-intelligence expert.

One - who had not been able to play a note before - instantly became a "piano virtuoso" without a single lesson. Others were left with a so-called "sixth sense" - an extra-sensory perception allowing them to receive information via their minds to which ordinary folks were oblivious.

The ONT Musical Interlude & Drinking Hot Chocolate With Marshmallows While Listening To Christmas Carol's Emporium


I'm a bit disappointed. "Love The One Your With" didn't make it.


Classic Rock’s 20 Worst Lyrics


Even the best classic-rock lyrics don't necessarily bear stand-alone scrutiny. Rock critic Robert Chrisgau memorably noted that Bob Dylan's "My Back Pages" was "a bad poem. But it is a good song, supported by a memorable refrain."

Unfortunately, even Bob Dylan has a bad day. He's not alone in that, as some of the genre's biggest names find a home on our list of Classic Rock's 20 Worst Lyrics. Some are bad poetry, while others spark head-scratching confusion. Still others are just plain wrong.

Of course, bad lines are sometimes deliberately included, as with Alice Cooper in "School's Out": "We got no principles; we ain't got no innocence. We can't even think of a word that rhymes." We've left those aside in favor of far more dubious entries in a countdown of Classic Rock's 20 Worst Lyrics:

Want moar Geniuses? Genius Award Winner.

A DRIVER has gone viral after alleging a pileup of cars was stuck after a Google Maps gaffe.

On a trip from Las Vegas to Los Angeles, the driver said the navigation directed them to a shortcut - they found themselves in a line in the desert.

I still like my old paper maps. Get off my lawn........

The ONT Is Always Looking Out For YouTM

'We tried yoga to boost our sex lives – it's helped us have four-hour bonks'

Lots of people try all sorts to try and boost their time in the bedroom, but one couple say they swear by yoga. Mike and his partner claim they have sex at least 10 times per week thanks to the calming practice
