Burger King Proposes to McDonalds…In the Name of Peace

Could happen.
Could happen.

 

*“Come together. Right now. Over me.” Who knew these  lyrics by the late John Lennon would come in handy over the union of two fast food rivals?

But it perfectly suits the needs of what Burger King is hoping will happen on September 21 — otherwise known as World Peace Day. The fast food giant has proposed to rival, McDonald’s, that they come together for the day and create a new dish.

Wait for it…

A McWhopper!

Atlanta Police Scratching Their Head About Racist Elmer Fudd Graffiti

Elmer Fudd

*Who did this? With all the negative attention going around about police doing unlawful things; now it appears some secret bandit has taken it upon him or herself to leave this documentation.

The Atlanta Police Dept. is searching for the graffiti artist that chose to depict the iconic cartoon character, Elmer Fudd, all dressed up in police attire; holding his famous rifle. But its the sign that Fedd stands alongside that is causing a ruckus.

The sign reads “Negro Season” and it is painted on a building in midtown ATL. A city that was 34 percent black in 2010.

“I don’t think of Atlanta as that type of city,” Sgt. Greg Lyon told 11 Alive News.

Still, not even police disapproval was enough for the immediate removal of the graffiti painting. It remained on the wall all weekend and wasn’t painted over until Monday. Continue reading

TNT Quickbits: Ever Seen a Dog Chillin’ in a Hot Tub? (Watch This!)

Dog Chillin in hot tub

*I’m so jealous. I thought the delightful look on the face of my beautiful Pit-Rhodesian Ridge-back while I give her a massage was the cutest thing ever. But now I see Cuzzie the dog, who we first met in 2013 as he enjoyed time chillin’ in a hot tub; but is now enjoying new life thanks to the never-ending cycle of social media.

“Cuzzie loves the jet in the hot tub against his back,” wrote YouTuber Danny Sam in a caption accompanying this cute clip. “He doesn’t mind the hot water and will press against it and croon his pleasure. This time he was at it for five minutes.” Continue reading

Caitlyn Jenner Adult Unisex Costume Timely for Halloween, But LGBT Community Not Amused

Caitlyn and Halloween

*Now you know it was only a matter of time for this to pop up, right? America will find a way to monetize ANYTHING or, in this case, ANY ONE who has generated any kind of news…or it will die trying.

And Caitlyn (formerly Bruce) Jenner, is no exception.

Inspired by her now infamous Vanity Fair cover, where the 65-year-old former Olympian poses smoldering, in a corset that her sons deemed “too sexy” in one article and Jenner opened up about his longtime fetish for feminine things inside, a new Halloween costume that serves as a replica of the look has emerged.

Corey P. Smith: Call Him a Godsend…Helped Two Homeless Men Get 700 Credit Score…in 30 Days (Watch)

BOOK, Conspiracy of Credit

*I kid you not with that headline. He also got them permanent housing. And today, one of them has a successful gardening business; and the other is married and working.

Talk about realizing your purpose and moving forward with it.

Corey P. Smith is a proud southern man on a mission. While some folks will do everything they can to keep you away from knowledge that will empower you, Smith does the exact opposite. He wants you to know what he has learned: that bad credit is by design. And if you know about “The Conspiracy of Credit,” which also happens to be the name of his latest book, and follow up by doing the work, you will no longer be a victim of it.

Smith, a husband and father, knew he was on the right track when the FBI showed up at his front door. Continue reading

Racist Flyer of Klansman Pointing Gun at Black Kid Hopes to Get ‘Us’ Really Riled Up

klansman point gun at black boy

*This picture has been around for a good minute, but that’s no reason to dismiss it. After all, some hateful lack of real manhood went through an awful lot of trouble to create it; so my guess is he/they would like a response. Of course they would prefer to get a rise out of black folk. They want to get our blood boiling.

You see, this carefully orchestrated work was done by someone with not a damn thing else to do. Someone with a pitiful, hateful, white-trash kind of ignorance who wants black folk to feel the same self-depreciation that he does. So, in this painting of a cop (somehow the word police officer just sounds too good) seen hiding behind a Klansman’s hood, pointing his gun at a black child who is wearing a hoodie. The child is holding out a bag of skittles, as if offering it to the cop. In the background is a Confederate flag.

OK “artist,” now tell us something we don’t know. You have a disdain for black people. Yeah, we get it.

But here’s the thing: at the end of the day. You are no more of a man. In other words, people are still going to see you as a punk-ass b*tch.

Toddler’s Fatal Shot of Dad Should Open Conversation About Greater Gun Control

*By now you have heard about the terrible accident at the hands of a toddler, resulting in the death of his father. What more reason do we need to address the issue of gun control? Better yet, what greater example to envision a society where there are no guns…eliminating these types of accidents?

I can’t help but “go there” for a minute and think (putting this very, very unfortunate accident aside for a minute) how many lives would have been spared if there were no guns to end them. How would differences be settled? What other alternative would police officers take if it were not so easy to reach for their pistol and shoot a suspect?

Maybe we’d go back to the old days of man up…dukes up and fight it out. I don’t recall many people dying from that, just bloody.

I don’t know about you, but I am sick and tired of people dying from being shot!

By all accounts 31-year-old Divine Vaniah Chambliss was a great dad. He was at home watching the kids while their mother was at work. Chambliss’ parents believe the toddler and his dad were napping together, when the child woke up and found the semiautomatic weapon and pulled the trigger. Continue reading

White Hosts on Fox News Complain, ‘We’re in an Impossible Situation’

*A discussion on race has always been a touchy subject when black people and white people are in the room. And now, thanks to the behavior of rogue cops who made the “Black Lives Matter” movement necessary due to their killing of unarmed black men on the regular; and the history of racism in this country, white people are feeling the pressure like never before. On Thursday’s episode of “The Five,” on Fox News, the show’s hosts said that they  are in an “impossible situation.”

“It is uncomfortable,” guest host Melissa Francis said, explaining why she has become apprehensive when it comes to talking about issues involving race in the belly of the #BlackLivesMatter movement.

She adds, “Sometimes you feel like it’s hard to say anything right.” Continue reading
