When you ride a horse to the polls to get attention, be prepared for what happens when you lose. Check out the best responses to Roy Moore’s horse show.

I’m sure it all happened with the best of intentions. Or rather, attentions. Roy Moore, whom I would call embatted Senator Roy Moore if it weren’t for the fact that so many people – for reasons I cannot explain, support him – rode into election day on a horse. (Named Sassy, no less!) The intention, I suppose, was to drive home what a down-home, southern fried, salt-of-the-earth lovin’ all-American country guy he was. By now you know his opinions and the scandalous accusations of predatory behavior that surround him.

The horseback performance was every bit the circus act that we have come to grow accustomed to in the current political climate. There was Roy Moore, in the center ring, and he loved it.

Then he lost the election, and the perfect joke presented itself.

Newspapers, particularly the New York Post and The Daily News, (who were writing memes before there was a name for it, I might add…) took the story by the, er… reigns:

It was the perfect – and obvious joke to throw at a man who thought the joke was on all of us. Even before the newspapers printed these gems (and kudos to the Daily news for taking it all the way,) twitter had already leaped at the perfection that was this response.

Folks were not only quick with a punchline, but also a little critique of the 70 year old’s horseback riding skills were also on deck. Here’s some of the best tweets that came out since the election day sideshow:


Even though Roy Moore lost, his horse Sassy won the Gallop poll.

“It’s only fitting that #Roymoore road in on a horse, he knows little girls love pony’s”- @RealDLHughley

Lastly, folks in-the-know had a lot to say about his form in the first place.
Horse twitter – yes, there’s a twitter community of horse lovers and riders, had lots to say.

Ultimately, the lesson is – if you decide to make a spectacle of yourself – it’s a hell of a lot less embarassing if you win.

AWKWARD: Ross Didn’t Like His Pet Monkey On ‘Friends’?!?

Published

Remember back in the 90’s on Friends when Ross got a pet monkey while living in New York City and no one batted an eye? Those were truly simpler times. Here in the jaded 2019, we just discovered that David Schwimmer didn’t like working with that monkey and now I don’t know what to believe anymore.

Last night, Matt LeBlanc stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! to promote his latest sitcom, Man With A Plan, but it was his chat about a particular Friends star that has the internet buzzing. When Jimmy Kimmel coyly asked if Matt keeps in touch with Marcel the monkey (who is actually named Katie in real life), Matt shared a nugget of information that I wasn’t prepared to ingest. David Schwimmer did not like working with the monkey!

“I liked the monkey! I like animals, and the monkey was really cool. Schwimmer… Not so much. He’s the one that had to work with it the most, so he was like, ‘Again with the monkey?’ But I got along great with it.”

Ouch. Right in the nostalgia. Apparently Katie the monkey wasn’t always the most cooperative co-star as Matt recounted the time she forced taping to come to a complete halt when she climbed above the lighting grid to hang out on the ceiling. It took about thirty minutes and a few mealworms to finally get the monkey back down to the set! Talk about a diva.

Check out the fun interview below! Click ahead to 3:05 mark to hear all about the monkey business.

VIDEO: The 38 Seconds Of Video Lori Loughlin’s Daughter Olivia Jade Is Regretting Right Now.

In a video from last year, Loughlin’s daughter says she will balance trips to Fiji and NYC into her school calendar, “doesn’t know how much of school (she is) going to attend” but she wants the experience of game days, partying, and “doesn’t really care about school, as you know.”

As mom Lori Loughlin faces allegations she paid 500,000 to help get her daughter Olivia Jade into college as a member of the crew team – even sending photographs of her daughter on a rowing machine to create the impression she was an athlete – a video made by her daughter in August is making the rounds again for the embarrassing references she makes to not even caring about getting an education in the first place.

Follow @brianbalthazar on twitter.

In the video, an entitled Olivia Jade, a YouTuber followed by 2 million people on the video platform, says she will balance trips to Fiji and NYC into her school calendar, “doesn’t know how much of school (she is) going to attend” but she wants the experience of game days, partying, and “doesn’t really care about school, as you know.”

Why she hasn’t taken this video down yet completely escapes me.

Naturally, social media has unleashed upon her, although it is unclear whether Olivia Jade even know her entrance into college was a result of bribes, (if the allegations are proven correct.)

In either case, the social media celebrity had to apologize days after this video first came out, and is more than likely wishing she had taken it down entirely now…
