Bill Maher Gets Roasted By Martin Short's Jiminy Glick On 'Real Time'.

If you’re looking for a few laughs, you have to check out this week’s Real Time with Bill Maher interview, which saw Martin Short‘s comedic Jiminy Glick character roasting the HBO host.

Glick, who has interviewed a slew of celebrities over the years, came out of retirement to chat with Maher about his new book, What This Comedian Said Will Shock You.

In typical fashion, Glick spent most of the time interrupting Maher, asking about other celebrities and talking about himself. He also teased Maher and made several jokes at his expense throughout the talk.

“I love this book,” Glick said while holding a copy. He then quickly admitted, “I haven’t read it. No, I’ve read it cover and cover, but nothing inside. But word gets back that it’s delightful.”


Soon after waking up, Glick quipped, “I’ve always loved Bill Maher’s opinions… Opinions about COVID, the whole COVID thing. I ‘love’ getting my medical advice from a club act.”

Hahahaha!! Good one.

Dozens of Tesla Cybertrucks were vandalized in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, this week.
The Cybertrucks were spray painted with a message attacking Tesla CEO Elon Musk.
Cybertrucks have become a symbol of ire for Elon Musk's many critics.

Tesla Cybertrucks have become symbolic. But probably not in the way Tesla CEO Elon Musk hoped.

Nearly three dozen Cybertrucks were vandalized this week in Florida with disparaging messages aimed specifically at Musk.

A 35-second viral video showing the aftermath of the vandalism spree in a Fort Lauderdale parking lot first gained traction on Instagram on Friday.

Well, this doesn't affect musk, other than his pride. The dealership's insurance eats the cost. Also, they're such ugly vehicles. Ugly! Ugly! Ugly!

Meet the New York Hero who nabbed an accused child rapist.

This is a fabulous article about powerful women who nabbed this m-effer!! And grabbed him in a headlock and kicked his ass!! A little NYC street justice!!

A sweeping manhunt in New York City ended on Tuesday after 23-year-old Angela Sauretti recognized a man in a black hoodie who entered the 108th Street Grocery in Queens at 1 a.m.

Sauretti was all but certain this was the face she had seen on Instagram—in an NYPD wanted poster for a man suspected in the machete-point rape of a 13-year-old girl as she walked with a boy her age last week.

Sauretti called out to a friend who stood nearby who had also seen the police Instagram posting. She asked if this was indeed the man more than 60 detectives had been seeking since Thursday’s broad daylight attack in a park across from the victim’s junior high school.

“I pointed him out,” Sauretti told The Daily Beast. “I’m like, ‘Yo, that’s him?’ [The friend] said, ‘Yes, that’s him.’ That’s what confirmed it. And everything just spiraled from there.”

I LOVE YOU, ANGELA!!!

I ran across this post on my neighborhood app. A disabled vet needs help out of a domestic violence situation.

This disabled veteran is in need of help to leave a domestic violence situation. I don't know her, but if you are able to help out, I'm sure any small amount would help her and her kids.

I ran across this cry for help on my neighborhood app.

I'm not in a financial place to help her, but at least I can do this. If you are able, please help this disabled veteran.

https://nextdoor.com/p/JnBm9xh9fGdk?utm_source=share&extras=MTYwNDI0Njc%3D&utm_campaign=1718089432875

From her post:
"I hate to do this but I'm running out of time and options.

I told my husband I was leaving him a few weeks ago which resulted in a domestic violence incident over the weekend. The police came and helped me get my things out and a friend paid for a hotel for the weekend but I have to be out today. I am a disabled veteran and they gave me a list of resources to contact however I haven't made it through the whole list. It's $100 for another night at this hotel. Is anyone able to help me so that I don't have to go back home?"

I killed Betty.

The sourdough starter I made last year. I worked for months to get her to rise perfectly and then tonight, I killed her.
Admittedly, I'd had a few beers and I put her in the oven and set the temperature to 350°. Just to warm it up, and I forgot. Usually, I just keep it on for 30 or so seconds, but tonight, I forgot to turn it off.

RIP Betty.
