My Evening With President Clinton
Earlier this month I was asked by a friend to be her date to her company's holiday party in New York City. She happens to work for the Clinton Foundation...as in the former President, Bill Clinton! Um...let me think about this...YES! Of course I'd go with her to the party!

The party was at a place called eSpace and it was gorgeous with white furniture and an awesome DJ. The drinks were incredible and I couldn't get over the amount of secret service walking around.

After about 20 minutes, the man of the hour walked in himself surrounded by four secret service men, it was former President Bill Clinton! The whole energy of the room changed. Men stood up straighter and fixed their ties and women (including myself) ran to the bathroom to put on more lipstick and check their hair before meeting him.

Then it was our turn to go up to him and have a picture and a quick chat. I told him I saw him speak in Milwaukee when I was in the sixth grade and he mentioned how much he enjoys Milwaukee and the large German population that is still there (which I appreciated, since I'm German). He was extrememly charming and it's true what people say, he makes you feel like you are the only person in the room when he speaks to you.

It was a night I will never forget and this is a photo I'll be sure to show my kids.

Don't Worry About Carbs
While conventional wisdom has dictated that people wanting to drop pounds should stick to protein at dinner, a new study suggests that people reconsider their evening carb fears. Inspired by Muslims’ eating patterns during Ramadan -- fasting during the day, carb-heavy celebratory meals at night, researchers from Hebrew University wondered what would happen if other populations saved their starchy meals for nighttime. They found that people's bodies responded positively to eating their carbs for dinner -- it helped regulate their hunger, satiety, and glucose levels.

Couldn't Save $100
This guy tried to work some magic in Disney World – and failed miserably. Emerito Pujol, 74, pretended he was a police officer in order to get into Epcot for free! The Miami resident wanted to avoid the $100 entrance fee, so he flashed a badge as he passed through the Orlando park’s turnstiles Saturday. He allegedly told a park employee that he was an undercover officer who was looking for someone. When a security guard approached him, he again claimed he was "in service" and was "guarding someone important." He finally admitted the truth when a real deputy asked him to produce his badge. The fake badge had the words “American Federation of Police” and “honorary member” on it. He was arrested and charged with unlawful use of a police badge, falsely impersonating an officer and petty theft. The only ride he got to go on was the ride to jail!

Working TOO Hard
A THIEF WHO DELIVERS!

A man in Connecticut stole a Chinese food delivery car last week…and continued making deliveries! He wasn’t just being considerate, though. Keith Hinds, 45, kept dropping off the orders so he could keep the customers’ money. The real delivery driver called police last Monday to report that his car had been stolen after he left it idling to run into a school. The driver also called his boss to notify customers that their orders were stolen along with the car. But it turns out they were none the wiser because Hinds took over the job. He was charged Friday with larceny, possession of less than half an ounce of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and other drug charges. On the plus side, he could have a real promising career as a delivery man.

What Say You on The Donald, Jon Stewart?
Okay, this one's a few days old, but well worth watching. On The Daily Show the other night, Jon Stewart was beside himself on the news that Donald Trump hadn't yet officially filed his paperwork to seal the deal on his presidential candidacy. Jon's been hoping and praying for Trump's candidacy, just to make his last six weeks on the show palatable... And now... Well, see how Jon reacted... I'm gonna miss this guy...   The Daily Show Daily Show Full Episodes,  More Daily Show Videos,  Comedy Central Full Episodes

Freddie Not Impressed by Kanye
Yesterday, we took a look at the abomination others called Kanye West's cover of Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody." We weren't the only ones who were thinking that. Check out this amazing mashup of Freddie Mercury "reacting" to Kanye's performance. And then Kanye "reacting" to Freddie's performance. If it doesn't make you laugh, there is no hope.   And by the way, to those who might think that Freddie actually had something to say - as I saw a few times on Facebook yesterday - please keep in mind that Freddie passed away in 1991.

Alex Trebek Goes All Fresh Prince
On Jeopardy! the other night, the category was TV. Dollar value: $800. Clue: "In the theme to this 90's sitcom, "I pulled up to the house about 7 or 8, & I yelled to the cabbie, 'Yo, Homes, smell ya later!'" Correct answer, and sort of a no-brainer: "What is 'The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air?'" What made it memorable, and in my mind, just a little creepy, was the way Alex Trebek read the clue. I'm sure he was going for a rap style, trying to imitate Will Smith, but it sounded more like a cross between Kelsey Grammer's Frasier and Orson Welles. Plus, he pronounced "later" as "lay-terr," not "lay-tah." No self-respecting rapper would do that, Alex!

Tackle Made by Number 99, JJ Watt!
Sunday night in Milwaukee, an overzealous fan crashed the stage during a Zac Brown concert. He was dancing a little too close to the band, having a great old time, and never saw what hit him and leveled him on the stage. What did hit him? Houston Texans' defensive end JJ Watt. All 6'5" and 300 pounds of him absolutely flattened the guy. When he was able to collect his senses, JJ unceremoniously escorted him offstage, to the wild cheers of the audience. I wonder if that's going to get JJ any training camp points with his coach?(function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id; js.src = "//connect.facebook.net/en_US/sdk.js#xfbml=1&version=v2.3"; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs);}(document, 'script', 'facebook-jssdk')); Nobody messes with Zac Brown Band Posted by JJ Watt on Monday, June 29, 2015

"Once You've Had One, You Can't Have Another"
Chris Pratt put on his best Jason Statham face and outfit on Saturday Night Live to do a promo for Jason Statham's Jason Steakums. Funny idea. Halfway decent impression. But a pretty lame bit. Which could explain why they cut it from the show. And Kenan Thompson as Ving Rhames? What the heck are you thinking about, SNL writers? Besides your summer vacation, that is.

"If It Happens Fast, It's Almost Lethal"
Chris Farley became famous superfast, thanks to his tenure on Saturday Night Live. And it seems like he left the planet just as quickly - some say a victim of his fame. He was only 33 when he died of a drug overdose in 1997. Now there's a new documentary about the comic actor's life, featuring a bunch of his contemporaries and workmates, talking about him, what his sudden fame did to him, and what he's left behind. I Am Chris Farley is set for release on August 1 according to most sources. Check out the trailer.   (function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id; js.src = "//connect.facebook.net/en_US/sdk.js#xfbml=1&version=v2.3"; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs);}(document, 'script', 'facebook-jssdk')); David Spade, Christina Applegate, Dan Aykroyd, Lorne Michaels, Mike Myers, Adam Sandler, Molly Shannon and more reflect on the comedian’s life and legacy in I Am Chris Farley.

Happy Anniversary, Let's Break Up
Say it ain't so, BenJen! On Monday, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner celebrated their 10th wedding anniversary. Yesterday, they announced they'll be filing for divorce... Think maybe somebody was so wrapped up in being Batman, he forgot his annivesary? Actually, those in the know - you know, the folks at TMZ - have seen this coming for a while. And it will be a while before it's all finalized, say the TMZers. Not until all the financial and custody matters are settled. So, don't be sending the divorce greeting cards just yet, kids.

From the Mouths of Babes
We're talking babes as in young folks here, so please try to follow along. The phrase means that young children often speak with great wisdom. So who better to consult about the Supreme Court's decision last week about marriage equality, right? That's what the folks at Jimmy Kimmel Live! were thinking when they sent their Man on the Street out on the street to see what young kids thought about gay marriage. The responses are pretty funny. (function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id; js.src = "//connect.facebook.net/en_US/sdk.js#xfbml=1&version=v2.3"; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs);}(document, 'script', 'facebook-jssdk')); Kids explain same-sex marriage.

Ain't No Strings on Me
This may be one of the weirdest movie mash-ups of all time. Perhaps proof positive that some people have too much time on their hands? Take a classic like The Wizard of Oz, and mix it up with Avengers: Age of Ultron, and what do you get? Avengers of Oz: Age of Tin Man, of course. It's pretty creepy and pretty funny all at the same time.

Why, Kanye, Why?
By now, you've probably heard that - despite 150,000 petition signers who begged for it not to happen - Kanye West headlined the Glastonbury Festival over the weekend. He got stage-stormed by a local comic - that was pretty cool, him getting a dose of his own medicine. But once the dust had settled from that, Kanye did something unforgiveable. He "performed" a cover of Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody." He hit every third note, which is about as many of the lyrics he got right. I'm sorry, it was atrocious. But don't take my word for it - check it out yourself. Don't worry, it's a short video...
