Tropical Storms Don And Hilary Are Swirling The Seas, And It’s Pure Coincidence

from http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/tropical-storm-don-hilary_us_596e892de4b00db3d0f3d728?section=us_weird-news As Tropical Storm Don, described Monday as “small,” “short-lived” and “not particularly well organized,” weakens in the Atlantic Ocean while drifting toward the Caribbean, another storm may be brewing in the eastern Pacific Ocean. If Tropical Depression Eight-E reaches tropical storm status, it will likely be named Hilary. Those names should sound familiar ― if you’ve had access to the internet, a newspaper or have a general concern for the future of the country. But, no, some snarky weather agency staffer did not name the storms as a tribute to President Donald Trump and his sworn nemesis former Democratic presidential rival Hillary Clinton.

The Florida family is baffled by the sudden sausage delivery. (iStock) A family in Florida is completely baffled by the airdropped sausages they received in the middle of the night. The Adair family, of Deerfield Beach, woke to the sound of several packages of frozen Italian sausage slamming into their roof on Saturday morning, and they’re still not quite sure where it came from. “It was like thunder, and it awakened me out of a sleep,” Travis Adair told ABC 10.

from http://www.aceshowbiz.com/news/view/00111795.html DJ Khaled has sparked rumors claiming that he injured a horse during his vacation in the Bahamas a week ago. The 41-year-old record producer broke the horse’s back while enjoying his holiday, according to Metro UK. The horse allegedly has to be put down because of injuries it sustained during the ride. The horse’s trainers were quoted by YYBZ Media as saying, “DJ Khaled said he weighed 200lbs, but out horse’s back determined that was a lie.” The rumors further suggested that the resort Khaled stayed in, One&Only Ocean Club, was forced to kill the horse and the DJ offered to pay for its funeral. Khaled’s Instagram post confirmed that he indeed rode a horse while vacationing in the Bahamas. He was seen trotting along the beautiful seashore while riding the horse to celebrate the success of his latest album “Grateful”, which bowed atop Billboard 200 chart for two weeks in a row. While a rep for Khaled called this rumors false, the luxury resort has not yet commented on the allegations.

Kermit the Frog Actor Fired Over ‘Unacceptable Business Conduct,’ Studio Says

from http://www.etonline.com/news/221739_kermit_voice_actor_fired_over_unacceptable_business_conduct_studio_says/ Steve Whitmire doesn’t appear to have left on good terms with Muppets Studio. The 57-year-old puppeteer has been the voice of Kermit the Frog since 1978, but was fired in October from his job over what the studio is calling “repeated unacceptable business conduct” that was over “a period of many years.” The statement, which was given to The Associated Press, also claims that Whitmire “consistently failed to address” the issue. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter on Monday, Whitmire said that he was fired after expressing views on how the beloved character should be portrayed in ABC’s Muppets mockumentary series that aired from 2015 to 2016. “I have been outspoken about what’s best for the Muppets since the Muppets came to Disney [2004],” he said. “The fact is I have respect for everyone who was involved in the creation of that series for their own particular contributions. At the same time, I also have insight into their limitations with respect to how well they know the Muppets.” Meanwhile, Lisa Henson — the daughter of the late Jim Henson, who founded The Muppets — told The New York Times that she supports the studio’s decision to fire Whitmire, claiming that he “played brinkmanship very aggressively in contract negotiations” and was hostile about training an understudy. Lisa is the president of the Jim Henson Co., and sold...
