Trump Meets Pope: Picture Going Viral

 

I’m sure plenty will be having a crack at captioning this image of three smiling Trumps and a rather grumpy Looking Pope Francis.

Let me have a go:

“Nobody told me it was a Black Dress Event!”

Trump Meets Pope

Commentators have noticed the apparent difference from PF’s meeting with prior dignitaries, but as Time Magazine notes, it could be just all in the timing of the photo and some selective editing:

Russian Foreign Ministry’s Epic April Fool’s Day Prank

This is a Classic! Funniest part is that AP had to check if it was a joke or not!:

 

Russia is known for many things—communism, vodka and bizarre dancing, for starters—but one thing Russia is not well-known for is its sense of humor. Perhaps that’s about to change.

In what could go down as one of the most interesting April Fools’ Day pranks of all time, the Russian Foreign Ministry posted on its Facebook page an audio file that supposedly showed the agency’s new switchboard message.

The message begins with, “You have reached the Russian Embassy. Your call is very important to us.”

“To arrange a call from a Russian diplomat to your political opponent, press 1,” the recording continues (in both English and Russian). Users are then instructed to “press 2” in order “to use the services of Russian hackers.” For “election interference” requests, “press 3.”

The Associated Press reports—because, apparently, AP felt the need to check—it was able to confirm the recording was meant as a “joke.”

On Thursday, Russian President Vladimir Putin criticized those in the United States who continue to play the “Russian card” to score political points, alluding to the Democratic Party. He also called the accusations of election interference made against his government “endless and groundless,” according to a report by CBS News.

A Farewell To NZ Politician John Key

(To anyone who doesn’t know, blue is the colour of the NZ National party, and John Key, ex PM, left parliement yesterday)

“My My, Hey Hey (Out Of The Blue)”

My my, hey hey
Rock and roll is here to stay
It’s better to burn out
Than to fade away
My my, hey hey.

Out of the blue
and into the black
They give you this,
but you pay for that
And once you’re gone,
you can never come back
When you’re out of the blue
and into the black.

The king is gone
but he’s not forgotten
This is the story
of a Johnny Rotten
It’s better to burn out
than it is to rust
The king is gone
but he’s not forgotten.

Hey hey, my my
Rock and roll can never die
There’s more to the picture
Than meets the eye.
Hey hey, my my.

(Neil Young).
