1. Grab that Remote, It's Fall TV Time, beotches!

2. Hunger Games IRL at the Olympics

During the men's marathon on Sunday, Ethiopian long-distance runner Feyisa Lilesa pulled a Hunger Games moment and showed his support for the Oromo Protests in his home country by making a specific motion with his arms:

Showing the sign is highly political though, so when he spoke a press conference after the marathon he said what he risked with the gesture, "If I go back to Ethiopia maybe they will kill me," he said, according to the Sydney Morning Herald.

"If I am not killed maybe they will put me in prison. [If ] they [do] not put me in prison they will block me at airport. I have got a decision. Maybe I move to another country."

Like the Hunger Games, let's hope the people can rise above this oppression.

We here at The Daily What LOOOVE a good conspiracy theory.

Today's fun features oft-hated political commentator, hero of the working class, and millionaire, Michael Moore, theorizing that the Donald was never an actual candidate for President, but was annoyed he wasn't being paid enough by NBC officials for his hit NBS TV shows, "The Apprentice" and "The Celebrity Apprentice," so he ran for office as a stunt to get better ratings and demand a higher paycheck.

According to Moore, Trump "cannot and WILL NOT suffer through being officially and legally declared a loser—LOSER!—on the night of November 8."

Moore continues that Trump "would rather invite the Clintons and the Obamas to his next wedding than have that scarlet letter L branded on his forehead seconds after the last polls have closed on that night."

So what do you think? Think Trump's in it for the money? Rumor has it he may drop out soon, so maybe he thinks he's got a giant TV paycheck coming?

The description that was posted with this picture on Facebook reads:

We are celebrating today because Lauren has gone one week without someone saying something mean to her about baby weight gain. That's a new record. Big day is only 9 weeks away!

A week without having something mean said to her is a new record? Great job, guys, way to get someone excited about bringing a new baby into the world. At least the comments seem more supportive, so it's not all bad. 

tv scary kids books Someone Thought It'd Be a Good Idea to Broadcast 'Watership Down' on Easter

'Watership Down' is a terrifying movie based on a book by Richard Adams about a community of rabbits finding their way in the world.  It usually has cute rabbits on the cover so it's usually mistaken for a children's book but the world of Watership Down is brutal and not all of the happy little bunnies survive.

But... it's about bunnies so that makes it a great Easter film, right? That's what someone at Channel 5 in England must have thought when they scheduled the movie to run in the afternoon on Easter day. 

Naturally, some families were outraged but others just enjoyed the irony of the programming.

Others support the movie and think parents these days are too sensitive.

For those of you who haven't seen it, please, watch the trailer and imagine little kids watching this with their families on a lazy Easter afternoon.
