As Eminem once said, “You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow because opportunity knocks once in a lifetime.”

That’s how the son of Kansas Rep. Roger Marshall felt during a quick photo op at his father’s swearing in ceremony. As House Speaker Paul Ryan turned and smiled for the camera, Marshall’s son went for a quick, inconspicuous, and heroic dab.

That’s when Ryan, perhaps, smelling dissent in the air turned and shut it down, like so many public healthcare initiatives.

Ryan asks the young man, “Are you going to sneeze?”

The boy, having just taken his only opportunity to embarrass his father, future self, and the guy who’s only dream is to have 100% privatized healthcare, put his hand down for the picture. The people, once again, have been crushed.


Paul Ryan admits that he’s totally out of touch with young voters:

Rep. Marshall jails his son for something that’s clearly protected by the First Amendment:

Keep fighting.



Jared Leto Wore a Bold, Green Coat to the Suicide Squad Premiere So Some Jokers on the Internet Photoshopped Him

If you know anything about 'Suicide Squad', then you know just how METHOD Jared Leto is. Like, seriously, this guy is EDGY and it sounds like he spent most of his time on set just making sure everyone was clear on that. Now that he's out of costume, it seems like he had a hard time letting go of the Joker's trademark green color. After the Suicide Squad premiere this outfit became part of a glorious photoshop battle because, well, this is the internet. It's what we do.

Primaries loom heavy on the horizon and we're all focused on the big, weighty stuff that matters, like who will run this country into the ground slow as possible, or potentially effect some real, quantifiable positive change—psyche.

Rubio's gleaming, stack-heeled ankle boots he wore whilst out campaigning in New Hampshire January 3rd, are the talk of the allegedly politically-savvy town. Look at these sick puppies:

And what would what appears as a percolating apocalyptic political fallout be without Rand Paul dropping a video on Twitter where we basically watch him put on a Rubio-mocking fashion show in Whoopi Goldberg's dressing room.

At least Rubio capitalized on all this child's play when he released the following statement that calls this clusterf*ck of nonsensical schoolyard bullying out for what it is:

"Let me get this right," Rubio said in his speech. "ISIS is cutting people's heads off, setting people on fire in cages, Saudi Arabia and Iran on the verge of a war, the Chinese are landing airplanes on islands that they built and say belong to them in what are international waters and in some ways territorial waters, our economy is flat-lined, the stock market is falling apart, but boy are we getting a lot of coverage about a pair of boots. This is craziness. People, have they lost their minds?"

The upside, and that is if there's any glimmer of 'win' here, is that this video's vaguely reminiscent of Far Far Away Idol; and this is a great thing, because we're going to watch that now.

In reality though, Jeb Bush broke through the ceiling of weird with this campaign video that's actually more bizarre and a staggeringly less amount of awesome than Far Far Away Idol.

It looks like Ben & Jerry's is going to release another politically-themed ice cream. In the past they've rolled out flavors like 'PrObama' and 'Yes Pecan!'

Well, this go round they're aiming to release 'Bernie's Yearning,' which would feature a "big disk of chocolate on top, covering the entire top and below it is just plain mint ice cream. The disc of chocolate represents 90 percent of the wealth that's gone to the top 10 percent over the last 10 years."

Ben Cohen went on to suggest that "You take your spoon and you whack that big chocolate disc into little pieces and mix it around," meant to symbolize a more equally distributed U.S. economy, one where everyone gets their share.

Sit down Neil McCabe.

"It's just part of life, I think," proposes McCabe at one point, when he's confronted with the unavoidable fact that more than 130 people have already died from gun violence in the U.S. this year.

This is where Snow channels his inner GoT Jon Snow, and goes off in the most effective, yet vaguely stoic way possible.

"No, it's part of death, Mr. McCabe," responds Snow. "That's death. That's dead people, people who have died as a result of guns."

Stand up. Now leave Neil McCabe.
