This Contestant on The Price Is Right
Any person who manages to get his name called from the audience on The Price Is Right is probably having the best weekend of his life (the only caveat being if he is the victim of a person who successfully bids $1). But one contestant made his entrance particularly memorable when he decided to crowd-surf his way down to the front of the stage. Really brings new meaning to the phrase “Come on dowwwwn."
Robert De Niro
The Raging Bull took a break from eating cannolis with Martin Scorsese (we assume that’s what he does in his downtime) to enjoy an awesome-looking dinner with friends for his birthday this weekend. De Niro turned 70 on Saturday and celebrated by sharing a meal with Christopher Walken, Samuel L Jackson and Harvey Keitel and having what looks like a blast. Happy Birthday, Robert!
Pop culture’s favorite supposed alien hot-spot, Area 51, has been officially declassified by the United States government. (Congratulations, aliens -- you can now go out in public without being hassled by conspiracy theorists!) In a report created in June and released to the public this weekend, the U.S. government notes the rumors of UFOs associated with the base probably came from various low-flying aircrafts that were tested at the base. Sure, CIA -- you can say whatever you want, but we know the truth is out there.
American cuisine took a big hit this weekend, which is impressive, considering things like the waffle taco and bacon sundae already exist within that broad umbrella. An article by The New York Times reveals that the consumption of roadkill is on the rise in the U.S., quickened by laws like Montana’s HB 247 or “Roadkill Bill” that allows residents to scrape up the good bits of dead animals and use it for personal consumption. We don’t know why this is a thing, we just know that if anyone tries to slip any roadkill into our waffle tacos, they may just lose a finger.
Justin Bieber, banned from the U.S.?
While it’s unlikely that such a thing would ever really happen, a lawsuit filed against the teen heartthrob following his involvement in a fight outside a Hamptons club could be placed into removal proceedings from the United States. That's if the singer is charged with assault, also unlikely, as he was reportedly indirectly involved in the alleged brawl.
However jarring this news, tweens should remain calm for now. Besides, Canada isn’t so far away.
Beezow Doo-doo Zopittybop-bop-bop
A man whose name made headlines last year after he was arrested for marijuana possession has once again been arrested, meaning that you can expect to hear the name “Beezow Doo-doo Zopittybop-bop-bop” sprinkled through the monlogues of late night hosts for the next week. Doo-doo, er, Zopittybop-bop-bop (We aren’t sure which part is the last name) was arrested on drug charges in Iowa -- and his weekend certainly isn’t any better for it.
