Show Topics

  • It’s Hump day and first things first, why is Stephen A. Smith’s nose so bulbous? That fine piece of information comes to us from the all-new Super Observant Covino. You know what else was super-noticeable for both he and Spot? The fact that Cersei Lannister’s famous walk-of-shame scene was actually a body double. Butt doubles and body doubles are actually pretty common in TV and Movies, it helps celebs not have to pose nude and be forever remembered for that scene specifically. How disappointed would you be if you found out one of your favorite nude movie scenes was actually just a double, posing as the celebrity?
  • College has gotten so expensive over the years that now more and more students are opting to go the “trade school” route instead. Why would you pay upwards of $300,000 for a four year degree when you could pay a fraction of that and be making more money in no time? The old school mentality of going to college and coming out with a career and full-time job is no longer viable, so more and more millennials are opting to skip over it or find another way to get into the profession of their choosing.

 

  • The US Men’s Curling Team won the Gold Medal at the 2018 Winter Olympics for the first time in history, but we can’t get over the fact that the guys really just look like four dads on an away weekend drinking beers and playing shuffleboard. Why has curling gotten so popular? Well, maybe it has something to do with the fact that it seems like the only Olympic sport you can compete in forever.

  • Are cartoons going too far in terms of adult topics and subjects? In the new Frozen 2 film there is a possibility that Elsa, the main character, may turn out to be a lesbian. Is that pushing the whole social consciousness, everyone needs to fit in and be represented thing too far? It’s a kid’s movie after all, and children should be learning those major lessons from their parents not some Disney movie. Next thing you know people will be hiring therapists to come over and give their children the “Birds and the Bees” talk, oh wait people are already doing that!
