Too Busy For the News? Try These Six-Word Summaries
We may be smack in the middle of the dog days of summer, but that doesn't mean there's been a dearth of interesting news events to keep us all chattering.
But alas, with a newborn and a preschooler giving me a run for my money, I simply haven't had a ton of time to read about, think about, or write about the most pressing and most juicy topics.
Still, assuming that "brevity is the soul of wit" (thank you, Shakespeare) I'm going to borrow from the popular Six Word Memoirs meme/site/book/movement and present some extremely pithy summaries of such news.
So without further ado, here are my "Six Word Summaries" of some of this summer's headlines, brouhahas and news events.
1. The royal baby boy:
Damn, Kate looks amazing. Baby too.
2. Kim and Kanye's baby girl:
North West who? Royal baby, FTW.
3. The latest Anthony Weiner indiscretion revelations:
My sexy text alias: Eduardo Scourge.
4. Cory Monteith's untimely death:
No glee here. Drugs can kill.
5. Heat waves across USA:
Hot enough for ya? Very funny.
6. A lack of enough high-quality midsummer movie options:
Who cares? It's cool in theaters.
7. Trayvon Martin verdict:
Innocent or guilty, a sad conclusion.
8. Amanda Bynes' continued media meltdown:
Step away from the Internet, girl.
