The News in Zingers

http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | The Golden Globe Award nominations were announced in Beverly Hills on Thursday with Lincoln leading the way. It's the twelfth movie about President Abraham Lincoln. His assassin John Wilkes Booth has only one movie based on his life, White Men Can't Jump.

Harry Belafonte urged Barack Obama Friday to imprison his political opponents like a Third World dictator. The president can't put his political enemies in prison. He's allowed to kill them with a drone missile but only because the courts haven't ruled on it yet.

McDonald's announced a huge increase in hamburger sales in November one month after a sales drop. They recently announced they sold their one hundred billionth McDonald's hamburger, and they're not happy about it. Now they have to buy another cow.

The Census Bureau reported that white people will no longer be the majority in the U.S. in thirty years. Nothing will change. Private schools just dropped American Civics class from the curriculum and replaced it with Introduction to British Colonial Rule in India.

The White House allowed Susan Rice to withdraw her name from consideration for Secretary of State. No one doubts her ability. Susan Rice lied to the American people on all five Sunday talk shows, breaking Hillary Clinton's one-day record by two interviews.

Sky and Telescope magazine reported the Geminid Meteor Shower passed by Friday night. Millions of people went outside in the cold to see the explosion of shooting stars. The Golden Globes really has to stop serving liquor during the nomination announcements.

The Mayan Calendar predicts that the earth's existence will come to an end Tuesday, prompting WalMart to open at midnight tomorrow. Smart move. Black Friday trampling incidents show that nothing increases impulse buying like the prospect of imminent death.

Barbara Walters named David Petraeus the Most Fascinating Person of the Year. She gave him the same honor two years ago for his military prowess. When ABC gave her the show she promised to have as much sex and violence as it takes to draw a TV audience.

West Virginians slammed MTV's new reality series Buckwild. It shows young people there drinking, fighting, and having sex in the back of a dumptruck. The NFL is hoping that breeding in the back of a dumptruck could produce a concussion-proof football player.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell met with the players' union rep Friday to discuss the forty-six NFL players arrested for DUI. It's a sin of the times. All football players ever do nowadays is play offense, nobody spends any time practicing the roadside sobriety test.

The Hurricane Sandy Relief Concert in New York Wednesday featured Mick Jagger and the Rolling Stones. Perhaps it's time to stop judging these guys and start appreciating them. Just on the amount of drugs they've done and survived, ESPN just rated the Rolling Stones third behind Bo Jackson and Jim Thorpe as the greatest athletes of all time.
