In the wake of an uproar over the $1.5 million Mark Wahlberg was paid for his All The Money In The World reshoots, the actor announced Saturday that he will donate the money in his costar Michelle Williams’ name to the Time’s Up legal defense fund.

The U.S. president used the word to refer to Haiti, El Salvador and other African countries. Trump questioned why its people were were coming to America, and asked lawmakers why the U.S. didn’t accept more people from Norway, a majority Nordic (white) country.
So, the steamed hams skit in The Simpsons’ “22 Short Films About Springfield” is a pretty hot meme right now.
Also known as “Skinner & The Superintendent,” the scene featuring Superintendent Chalmers and Principal Skinner is one of the show’s funniest, but has landed an extra bit of comedic oomph thanks to the plethora of remixes by people on the internet.
Passed last May, House Bill 2482 allows for self-service refilling in counties which have a population of less than 40,000. Oregon was one of two U.S. states which long banned the practice, the other still being New Jersey.
With the new year ticking over, there were a number of Oregonians angry about the potential change to self-service statewide in a viral Facebook post.Read more…
Bad lip readings are mostly unrealistic, which makes them a hoot to watch. Their latest video, however, is all about Christmas and the Trump. It doesn’t ask you to stretch your imagination too much, except imaging the president singing with a reasonable pitch.
The Donald sings and dances his way through a holiday song we didn’t really need in our lives, but it’s here and it’s unfortunately for us all, a little catchy. Read more…
Miss America has lost its TV partner following troubling emails allegedly written by the pageant organization’s CEO, Sam Haskell.
The leaked emails were published in the Huffington Post on Thursday, accusing Haskell and his colleagues of ridiculing past winners on their weight, sex lives, and using vulgar language to describe them.

Spoiler alert! This post contains big spoilers for Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Seriously, get out of here now if you don’t want to know what happens.
The critical response to The Last Jedi has been overwhelmingly positive, with reviews lauding the film for — among other things — deviating from the Star Wars norm.
Audiences online, though, haven’t been quite so enamored of the movieAs Mashable reported earlier this week, the gap between Rotten Tomatoes scores from critics vs. those from moviegoers was, at one point, a whopping 37 percent.

Chris Pratt is a known prankster, but his latest Instagram post isn’t a joke at all.
The Guardians of the Galaxy actor just discovered a fake profile claiming to be him on Facebook, and has taken upon himself to make sure no one is duped by the Chris Pratt that’s luring young female fans “trying to get their numbers and who knows what else.”
It’s Thanksgiving week, and you know what that means: Time for Donald Trump’s annual tiff with Time magazine and it’s “Person of the Year” issue.
Trump won the honor last year, which should have silenced his irritation forthwith. But because he’s Donald Trump, he will not be satisfied unless he is the center of all attention always.
Time Magazine called to say that I was PROBABLY going to be named “Man (Person) of the Year,” like last year, but I would have to agree to an interview and a major photo shoot. I said probably is no good and took a pass. Thanks anyway!
Your relatable tweets are proving to be a real headache for the state of Maine.
As The Daily Dotpointed out Saturday, one of the many ways people announce that they’ve found a tweet relatable is by at-replying the Twitter handle “@me.” It’s tongue-in-cheek — a shorter way to say “that’s me” or “it me.”
The handle is also frequently used when someone says “don’t @ me,” but fails to put a space between “@” and “me.” That space makes a world of difference, y’all. Isn’t Twitter interesting?
It’s been over two years since Pizza Rat taught us what it means to reach for the stars. It was 2015, a simpler time — one that you may be feeling nostalgic for even now.
And that’s why we know you’re going to watch this video of two rats battling for a french fry in the disgusting NYC subway. Come on, give it a try! It’s short, it’s fun, it’s dramatic. It even has a beginning, middle, and end.
Supermarkets have indicated to the newspaper there might be a shortage in potato crisps, as manufacturers have a smaller cut of potato crops in the country. Normal potato supply won’t return until the new year.
When the chips are down, people are going to freak out — a bit — on social media. Read more…
If you’re afraid of heights, look away. A man in China tried fleeing a hotel bill by escaping through a high-rise window, and climbing onto thin telephone wires to get to another building all the way across the street.
Unfortunately, he appears to have underestimated how difficult that would be, and he’s seen struggling to keep his balance, even swinging his body over the swaying wire to anchor it.
In the monologue, Kimmel said Cassidy “lied right to my face” when he appeared on the show in May, where the senator promised coverage for kids like Kimmel’s son who was born with congenital heart disease.
In the day after Kimmel’s outburst on the bill, politicians and television personalities lined up to criticise the talk show host. Like Cassidy, who accused Kimmel of not understanding the bill, when talking to CNN‘s Chris Cuomo on Wednesday morning. Read more…
Feel free to file this in the “unlikeliest covers ever” folder.
Lil Wayne covered the Friends theme song, poking fun at the San Francisco 49ers’ poor start to the NFL season in a promotion for the league’s second week on Fox.
Well, as fans would know the 49ers did indeed go 0-2 with their loss to the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday, but the upshot is that we’ve got this utterly bizarre Lil Wayne cover to store in our minds forever. Read more…

Magpies can be a particularly aggressive demon bird in Australia from late August to late October — a significantly lengthy time to wear a helmet at all times but so be it. While apparently only 10 percent of magpies actually attack during this time, these can be bloody brutal. Read more…
Here’s a way to get people talking about the wage gap.
Handsome Her, a café in Melbourne, Australia, that describes itself as a “space for by women, for women,” has created quite the kerfuffle for its “house rules” blackboard it erected recently, highlighting the gender pay gap.
The ’90s song you probably won’t admit you like — but secretly really, really do — got a cover from HAIM, and it’s out of this world.
Shania Twain’s “That Don’t Impress Me Much” was covered on Australian radio station triple j, but instead of extending the rambunctiousness of the 1997 hit, the three piece went for a stripped back version that is really, seriously, quite unexpected.
HAIM also covered Twain’s “Man! I Feel Like a Woman” last month, so look, it’s probably not going to be the last cover of the Canadian country singer we’ll hear from the band.
After news broke that Jodie Whittaker would take on the role as the 13th Doctor—making her the first woman to do so—Davison took the time before a Comic-Con panel to share his thoughts, which sparked outrage from many on Twitter.

The man, Cheng Hongwei, told Sina iPop he thought of making an ad for his pantyhoses over the weekend.
He wasn’t planning to post the video online, just to circulate via messaging to his clients. So he figured he’d whip up something to show off the quality, and got his daughter to film it with a phone. Read more…

The photo was initially shared on Reddit, but also got plenty of attention when it was shared by author Jillian David on Twitter Monday, who said this could’ve been avoided with a focus group of women.

Never mind the ‘pics or it didn’t happen’ rule. The new rule is: geofilter or you weren’t there. Here are seven of the most remote geofilters around the world:
Jozani Forest, Zanzibar, Tanzania
This geofilter appears in a forest in the only national park in Zanzibar, on an island off the coast of Tanzania, Africa. The forest also happens to be home to the Zanzibar red colubus monkey — a species that only exists on that island. While you’re snapping monkeys, be sure to search for the forest’s geofilter.

Those vaguely country and western disguises meant to conceal Miley Cyrus and Jimmy Fallon might not have been that effective, but then again, when would you ever get to see these two busk in a subway station?
