The first round of the NFL draft went down last night, and there were several takeaways . . .
As expected, the first two picks were quarterbacks. The Stupid Los Angeles Rams took JARED GOFF, and the Philadelphia Eagles selected CARSON WENTZ. The Rams and Eagles had previously traded up into the Top Two.
Offensive tackle LAREMY TUNSIL was supposed to go as high as #3 . . . but he ended up falling to the Miami Dolphins at #13, thanks to a BONG HIT.
Just 13 MINUTES before the draft was supposed to start, a video was posted on Tunsil's Twitter account showing him smoking a BONG out of a gas mask. Both the video and the account were deleted shortly afterward.
Tunsil says his account was hacked, apparently by someone who wanted to sabotage him. And that's not a stretch . . . even the stupidest person in the world wouldn't post this video as they're literally IN the audience at the draft.
Tunsil later admitted that smoking pot in the video was a "mistake," and that it happened "years ago." He's passed all his recent drug tests, and says, quote, "I promise to work hard on and off the field."
There's talk that Tunsil's stepfather was the one who hacked his account . . . because they are NOT on good terms, but he told TMZ he had nothing to do with it.

We may soon be getting a national mammal, with the House of Representatives voting this week to give the title to the North American bison. The bipartisan National Bison Legacy Act is expected to be approved by the Senate, and will then go to the president for his signature. Democratic Rep. William Lacy Clay of Missouri said, "No other indigenous species tells America's story better than this noble creature," calling the bison a "symbol of strength, native American culture and the boundless Western wildness." There were once millions of bison roaming the plans of the U.S., but their population was reduced to just over one thousand by the turn of the 20th century as they were subjected to mass slaughter as part of the nation' expansion west. Due to preservation efforts led by former President Theodore Roosevelt, the Wildlife Conservation Society and its flagship Bronx Zoo, and others, the bison was slowly reintroduced in the wild, and there are now an estimated 500,000 of them in the U.S.

Would people get this up in arms over a lawn gnome? Jim Grinstead of Nashville, Tennesse says he finds it "utterly ridiculous" that his homeowner's association is ordering him to remove his front-yard zombie statue after five years. Grinstead says he and his wife have lived in their home for ten years and affectionately call the zombie statue "Clawed." He was surprised to receive a letter from the homeowners association ordering him to get rid of the statue, which depicts the head and arms of a zombie climbing up out of the ground. The letter reads, "During a recent inspection of the community on April 19th, 2016, it was noted that there is a zombie in your yard that needs to be removed." Grinstead tells WKRN-TV, "I think the homeowner's association needs to lighten up a little bit. We have a sense of humor and that is how we want the world to think of us. It's how we think of ourselves. People will stop sometimes and take pictures of Clawed. Our friends get a kick out of it when they come over and we've never had a complaint about him." He plans to remove the statue this week, despite his objections.

People really get creative when they want something done. A group of residents of Devine Street in Jackson, Mississippi, caught the attention of their city's government by throwing a birthday party for a pothole. They placed balloons and a sign in front of the 16-month-old pothole and its two "younger brothers" in a mock celebration. The sign reads, "I have been here over a year! My little brother potholes too! 311 calls about us started on February 2015!" Eddie Prosser said he was behind the sign and was looking to add a bit of humor to the situation. Apparently his efforts paid off, as shortly after the "birthday celebration" city crews came to fill the pothole with dirt. Residents are hopeful the city will come back to pave over the hole.

SHIA LABEOUF has a face that many, many people would love to punch. And that's no excuse for what happened here. But we can understand . . .
Mario Licato of Brooklyn, New York was getting off the subway in Manhattan on Saturday night, when a guy ran up to him and punched him in the left eye.
Then he yelled, quote, "This is because you look exactly like Shia LaBeouf!"
And it's true: Mario DOES look like Shia LaBeouf. He says people have pointed out the resemblance many times. Quote, "I've been stopped on the street at least 10 times in my life."
The guy who punched him was in his mid 20s, around six feet tall and muscular. The cops are pulling some surveillance videos to try to track him down. Mario wound up not needing stitches, but he's still got a massive black eye.
And given how attention-hungry the REAL Shia is these days . . . with his pretentious art performances . . . we're thinking it's a matter of time before he reaches out to this guy for some weird project.

If your boss is into the whole science thing, take THIS to him and see if you can get yourself permanent four-day weekends.
A new study out of the University of Melbourne in Australia found that we should only be working three days a week.
The researchers found that our brains can only really function at their peak levels for about 25 hours a week. After that, the quality of our work declines REALLY quickly.
The drop is so bad that if you ever try to pull a crazy 70-hour week, your brain is basically USELESS by the end.
Now, there is one catch. The study only included people over 40, so it's possible that younger people can hang in a little longer. But still, no matter how old you are, at some point too much work just makes your brain shut down.

There goes that BEYONCÉ, scaring white people again. Her "visual album" "Lemonade" is ultimately about a relationship strained by infidelity.
But she also goes crazy with a baseball bat, and shows that same kind of rage that agitated Whitey during the Super Bowl. And according to conspiracy theorist (slash) professional jackass ALEX JONES, we should ALL be afraid, white AND black.
Because he has figured out that "Lemonade" was funded by the CIA for the purpose of starting a RACE WAR.
He said, quote, "This is just to get people to act like total morons, so they can basically be arrested, set up, and put in jail . . .
"This is to get us all at each other's throats, when we're all Americans getting screwed over by the NSA, and foreign banks and derivatives.
"We're all getting our kids attacked and aborted, and shot up with vaccines and GMOs. We're all in this together . . . [And] the police are being federalized and geared up for what's about to happen."
