A humorous look-back at the week that was

Wow! What a week (Dec. 24-29)

Ron Rivera finds odd way to motivate his team. What’s not to love about a Bojangles’ biscuit? A “Real Housewife” charged with attacking police officer.

Wow, what a week!

A star from the “Real Housewives of New York” television show assaulted the police and escaped from handcuffs while in a police car. She eventually was arrested again, before she yelled, “I’m going to (expletive) kill you” to the cops. And this was all in one night! So, the police didn’t shoot her or beat the HELL out of her? What gives? Weren’t they scared for their natural lives? If this had been one of the stars from “Real Housewives of Atlanta,” well you know the rest…

And here we go….

The Wedding Crasher
Members of the British government are worried about President Trump not receiving an invitation to the royal wedding. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle would like to invite former President and First Lady Obama, but if Trump doesn’t get an invite he might get mad. I guess everyone does end up inviting someone(s) to their wedding that they don’t like. — your mama’s 9th cousin or that drunk aunt who talks too much. Let’s hope Trump gives good gifts and not bath towels from Mar-a-Lago.

A Cold, Cold Christmas
South Carolina residents who purchased the Holiday Cash Add-A-Play lottery tickets on Christmas Day received a terrible surprise. A system error created multiple winning tickets, which led multiple people to believe they had won money. If anyone reading this bought Holiday Cash Add-A-Play tickets, issued from 5:51 p.m. to 7:53 p.m. on Christmas Day, you didn’t win one red cent. Not to worry, because good old-fashion instant scratch tickets are still operating effectively.

Best Biscuits
Bojangles’ biscuits didn’t fare so well in a Washington Post poll. One judge said the biscuit tasted like “baking soda.” That is an insult worthy enough to start to the Civil War all over again. If you go into a Bojangles’ any morning, you will see the United Nations of biscuit eaters. Whether a biscuit is good or not is in the mouth of the beholder. It all depends on how you like your biscuits. Do you want some type of syrup or a jelly? Do you want ham, pork or just cheese on the bread? I know how Charlotte is sensitive, so I hope that we can move past this because there may be more to come. We have to brace ourselves for when they get around to doing a poll on Chicken.

Who Cheers for the Victims?
Carolina Panthers Coach Ron Rivera really loves Jerry Richardson, the owner of his team. Rivera had decided to motivate his team by using the disgraced owners’ downfall with the rallying cry of, “Mr. Richardson on three. 1-2-3.” Richardson isn’t dying from some disease or retiring to spend time with his grandchildren. He allegedly paid off women who he sexually harassed and used a racial slur at an African American employee. Do the Panthers need motivation so badly as to cheer on Richardson for victimizing his employees?

Did you know?
Trump has finally done the impossible and repealed the Affordable Care Act, a.k.a. Obamacare, through the new tax plan. According to an Economist/YouGov Poll, 44% of registered Republicans believe that Trump repealed Obamacare. The same poll showed that 17% of registered Republicans were not sure. That adds up to 61% who don’t have a clue about what the tax plan can or can’t do. If you haven’t done so already, please do your own research to know how the tax plan will affect you in 2018.

Arrivederci from 98%
Judge Roy Moore of Alabama, who lost his bid for the U.S. Senate, claimed that there were voting irregularities at 20 precincts in Jefferson County. How ironic that Jefferson County is heavily populated by African Americans. But it doesn’t matter, because his legal challenge to the election has been dismissed. So without further adieu, it gives me great pleasure to make this announcement: On behalf of the 98% of African American women who voted for Doug Jones in the Alabama special election, goodbye Roy Moore. You didn’t lose because of sneaky African Americans bused in from Gary, Indiana, voting 50 times at one polling location. You lost because you ran up on an immovable object – Black Women on a mission.
