Couple Uses Alligator for Gender Reveal

This is one of the few times where I was hoping for the alligator to snap off a guy’s hand:

A Louisiana couple has taken gender reveal parties to a whole new level by enlisting a real-live alligator to assist with their baby announcement.

In a video shared on Facebook on Sunday by the baby’s grandmother, Melody Kliebert, a man can be seen holding the alligator’s mouth shut before dropping what appears to be a small watermelon into its waiting jaws. The gator then snaps its mouth shut, causing a gooey blue liquid to explode out of the fruit as everyone gathered for the ceremony cheers for the new baby boy.

“Just found out my grand baby is a,,,,,,gotta love it!!” Melody captioned the clip. “And I do!! No matter the results!!”

According to WGNO, the man handling the deadly reptile is not only the baby’s father but also Ponchatoula-based alligator wrangler, trainer and tour guide Mike Kliebert—a.k.a. T-Mike, the Gator King.

McMaster is Out…. Again…

And Bolton is in. Oh shit!

President Trump tweeted, “I am pleased to announce that, effective 4/9/18, @AmbJohnBolton will be my new National Security Advisor. I am very thankful for the service of General H.R. McMaster who has done an outstanding job & will always remain my friend. There will be an official contact handover on 4/9.”

Did Trump just fire another by tweet?

Update:
Not by tweet. That’s was just him telling everyone else because there is no other way a President of the United States can disseminate information.

John Oliver’s Gay-Bunny Book Is Outselling the Mike Pence Book It’s Trolling

From Vanity Fair:

Guess who just managed to pull a best-selling book out of their hat? That’s right: it’s John Oliver and the staff of Last Week Tonight—specifically, writer Jill Twiss—whose picture book, the somewhat cumbersomely titled Last Week Tonight with John Oliver Presents A Day in the Life of Marlon Bundo, is, as of this writing, the No. 1 best-selling book on Amazon. It’s a sweet victory, made even sweeter by the book that’s currently down at fourth place: Marlon Bundo’s A Day in the Life of the Vice President, a picture book written by Mike Pence’s 24-year-old daughter, Charlotte, and illustrated by his wife, Second Lady Karen Pence.

The results may be even more satisfying for Oliver on the children’s book chart, where the Pence joint is being outsold not only by the hardcover version of A Day in the Life of Marlon Bundo, but also by the Last Week Tonight creation’s Kindle edition. The Day in the Life of Marlon Bundo audiobook, featuring the talents of Jim Parsons, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Jeff Garlin, Ellie Kemper, John Lithgow, Jack McBrayer, and RuPaul, is also Audible’s current No. 1 best-seller, beating out slightly more substantial audiobooks like James Comey’s A Higher Loyalty and the movie tie-in version of A Wrinkle in Time.

This, of course, is no coincidence. Last Week Tonight’s bunny book, which follows a sprightly young rabbit named Marlon as he meets and falls in love with a dashing male rabbit named Wesley (and defeats a stink-bug bad guy that doesn’t think boy bunnies should marry each other, one who looks an awful lot like Mike Pence), would not exist were it not for the Pence family’s book, a gentle dramatization of life in the Naval Observatory from a bunny’s-eye view.
