    • 'Jeopardy' contestant gives Trebek the finger

      In the small talk portion of Wednesday night’s “Jeopardy! College Championship” edition, Stanford undergrad Viraj Mehta slyly flipped Alex Trebek the bird while talking about differential geometry and pizza. Mehta, a Texas native, got going about a theorem in differential geometry “that explains really, well, why, if you fold a slice of pizza, the tip stays in the air so you can eat it easily,” all the while flashing his own single-digit salute in the air. The brazen gesticulation went on for about seven seconds before Mehta wrapped up his explanation, adding that it “was really cool to work out in class.” Trebek appears not to notice when he chalks up Mehta’s theorem to “thick crust.” Twitter

    • Insulting in-laws' weighty remarks are not welcome

      Dear Amy: My in-laws always seem to feel the need to comment on people's weight, either right to their faces at a family function or gossiping about it behind their backs. Ironically, they are not exactly thin. My brother-in-law and his wife are quite heavy (my brother-in-law much more so), but his parents (my in-laws) only comment about his wife, exaggerating her weight over his. My mother-in-law has said to my daughter, in front of everyone at Thanksgiving, "You were pretty heavy there for a while, but you look pretty good now." My daughter is the recipient of at least one insult per visit. These comments are usually made during holidays, and with these zingers being hurled on a regular basis,

Sky News reported that the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources at first believed it could be the remains of a sea cow.

    • Fox News' Shep Smith attempts to explain 'Fake News' to Donald Trump

      "CNN's reporting was not fake news," Fox News host Shep Smith said on air on Friday. In lieu of a daily press conference, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer held a closed-door gaggle with reporters, hand-selecting which media organizations had the privilege of attending. CNN, the New York Times , BuzzFeed , the Los Angeles Times and Politico were denied access, prompting a flurry of confusion and outrage.  While reporters from the Associated Press and Time reportedly boycotted the meeting, the media outlets banned found an unexpected but increasingly vocal ally: Fox News' Shep Smith.  SEE ALSO: Trump White House blocks CNN, New York Times, BuzzFeed, Politico from press briefing Smith defended the media organizations that the White House barred from the briefing on TV on Friday afternoon, and noted that President Donald J. Trump has referred to some the organizations as "fake news" in the past. When Smith noted that Spicer hand-picked the media allowed in the gaggle, Smith said, "that is highly unusual." Later in the segment, Smith attempted to educate Trump and his audience on what "fake news" really actually is. Sorry, but it's not news that you don't like. "For the record," Smith said in the broadcast, "fake news refers to stories that are created often by entities pretending to be news organizations solely to draw clicks and views and are based on nothing of substance. In short, fake news is made-up nonsense delivered for financial gain. CNN's reporting was not fake news." This isn't the first time Smith has gone on air to defend CNN. He defended CNN reporter Jim Acosta after Trump called CNN fake news during a press conference and again when Trump insulted the media at another press conference when he ignored questions involving Russia.   BONUS: Trump claims drugs are cheaper than candy, Americans collectively facepalm
