Good news for a change, my pedigree chums. Roseanne’s racism actually came from a jar, North Korea is set to sell out and we have a new Fallout on the horizon.
Roseanne blames racist tweet on medication, kicks off viral marketing campaign.
Late last night we discovered an exciting new product: Racism in a jar. If you haven’t seen Roseanne Barr’s new advertisement for the drug Ambien, you certainly have missed out. Clearly, Barr’s expulsion hasn’t really harmed her, as she blithely pitched the product on the same platform that banished her, tweeting:
“It was 2 in the morning and I was Ambien tweeting — it was memorial day too — i went 2 far & do not want it defended — it was egregious Indefensible. I made a mistake I wish I hadn’t but…don’t defend it please.”
I mean you have to hand it to Sanofi, for a pharmaceutical company, they certainly now how to shade someone on Twitter.
People of all races, religions and nationalities work at Sanofi every day to improve the lives of people around the world. While all pharmaceutical treatments have side effects, racism is not a known side effect of any Sanofi medication.

With that being said Ambien is a safe product for your “traditionist” Dad to use, but, like all medication, it shouldn’t be taken whilst driving, and it should be kept out of reach of children.
In the name of peace, North Korea is set to welcome Western fast food. Please, no, Kim.
You know what I fear? Peace in Korea. Especially what that peace will do to the North. They’ve been isolated, happy to live their olive drab reality since forever. They have state-sponsored everything, all held by an irrefutable fact: Kim is a fudging babe, should be treated thusly and never questioned.
Look at their anguished/gleeful faces, it’s like they’re meeting Ringo Starr.
However, in the quest of peace, the Supreme Leader is set to do something fairly questionable – open a fast food outlet. It seems like a positive thing, as it is a great tradition we hold, rolling up to McDonalds in the wee hours when we can barely walk with sweet lady grease waiting for us. Donating those feels we feel when we partake in said tradition to someone who hasn’t feels like a positive, right?
Um, no. It might be ours, but it’s not their tradition.
My money is on Burger King. Or in North Korea: Burger Supreme Leader

The paranoia is real. Look no further than the fall of the Soviet Union. Mikhail Gorbachev, a great reformer (and a man who almost disassembled all the nukes), fell viciously, tumbling from the ledge above Lenin’s masoleum into a fucking booth at Pizza Hut.
Teaser trailer for new Fallout game, Fallout 76 drops, nerds ready bladed tire-irons in preparation.
Fallout is the gleeful end of the world simulator that sees you not find your kidnapped son in favour of searching for adhesive, bartering fools before murdering them in cold blood and running from large things that will invariably fudge you up good – like mosquitos.
However, Bethesda’s grand epic is set to get a new edition, with an extremely vague teaser trailer dropping this morning, with promises of more information set to drop at E3 on June 10.
“When the fighting has stopped, and the fallout has settled…”

I mean, what we know from the teaser is not much, except the promise of the recommencement of hostilities set to a John Denver cover. A date on the terminal, however – October 27.
Could be something, or…
You know what? Even if it’s not this year, some greatness is on the horizon. Alongside Fallout 76 we also have Red Dead Redemption 2 dangerously close to us.
I may never leave the house again.
