Internal Memo for Wednesday, 6/12/19

Hello Rich White Theatergoers,

Whoops, that’s redundant.

Who watched the Tonys on Sunday?! Those musical numbers were even more electrifying on TV… and that is sad.

BUSINESS.

Bradley Cooper has broken up with girlfriend Irina Shayk, just four months after his A Star Is Born co-star Lady Gaga broke off her engagement to Christian Carino. The two are reportedly looking for a piano.

As her mother awaits sentencing in the Operation Varsity Blues college admissions scandal, the daughter of Felicity Huffman and William H. Macy has graduated from high school. In lieu of gifts, she has asked that friends and family fuck off and die.

Anna from Legal, good luck defending Comcast against claims of racial discrimination in front of the Supreme Court! You always did like a challenge.

Justin Bieber tweeted Sunday that he would like to fight Tom Cruise “in the octagon.” Cruise responded that Bieber should stop talking before he ended up like the last person who wanted to fight him, Shelly Miscavige.

The Illinois state legislature has officially approved the use of recreational marijuana by adults in the state. Donald Trump has responded by sending National Guard troops to Chicago.

Jerry, you did not survive Chernobyl.

An estimated 1.03 million protesters flooded the streets of Hong Kong Sunday to oppose a proposed law that would allow the local government to extradite fugitives to places such as mainland China and Macau. “We are very angry,” one protestor told the South China Morning Post, “that nobody realizes this is a gay pride parade.”

An English woman has been arrested after she punctured the famous “baby Trump” balloon flown by protesters to mark the businessman’s recent visit to the UK. “Yes! Yes! I stabbed baby Trump!” the woman was heard shouting as police led her away, “And I didn’t have to go back in time to do it!”

Have you ever dreamed of working for a Fortune 500 company? Well work harder! We didn’t qualify yet again.

A series of photos appearing to depict a pregnant Marilyn Monroe are being sold for $90,000. Monroe’s estate has disputed the authenticity of the photos, which also show John F. Kennedy pointing at the actress’ belly and mouthing “That’s mine.”

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin has announced that, due to security concerns, the redesign of the $20 bill featuring Harriet Tubman will be delayed until 2028. “This design must be implemented correctly, as it would be much easier to counterfeit,” Mnuchin said in a statement, “because all black people look the same.”

Hadestown… that’s the sequel to On The Town, right?

Oh, who gives a fuck.

Internal Memo for Friday, 6/20/14

Good Afternoon,

Wow!  I was so exhausted by that week of memos that I had to take an entire week off.  Bet you wish you had that luxury… but you sure don’t.  Business!

Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw threw his first no-hitter Wednesday night.  Kershaw, 26, is reportedly “elated” and “very, very wealthy.”

An Ohio boy recently came across a mummified corpse hanging in a closet while exploring a vacant house.  Clint Eastwood has since released a statement insisting he was “just resting his eyes.”

With the World Cup in full swing, I would like to take a moment to acknowledge Anna from payroll, who plays for Brazil under the name “Fred.”  Hang in there, girl!  You’ve gotta score sometime…

Former NFL quarterback Brett Favre will appear in a new campaign ad for Mississippi senator Thad Cochran.  The ad begins with Favre, seated on a tractor, saying, “As someone who sends frequent, unsolicited pictures of his penis to people, I know a thing or two about the US Senate.”

The Oakland A’s have acquired pitcher Brad Mills from the Milwaukee Brewers for $1.  Mills has since vowed to meet a prostitute with a heart of gold and team up with his Brewers replacement to take down the infamous Duke & Duke commodities brokerage firm.

No, Jerry, Zaire did not make the World Cup.

A Minnesota man has been arrested after lighting his roommate on fire.  “He made the choice not to buy toilet paper,” said Adam John Lilienthal of his now-deceased roommate, “and I made the choice to burn him alive.”

A Long Island principal stands accused of plagiarizing his yearbook remarks to graduating seniors from another principal in Albany, California.  “Well excuse me,” said the accused, Dr. Steven Strachan, “I thought I was supposed to prepare these kids for college.”
 
This is a reminder to please refrain from discussing the World Cup AT ALL while on the 11th floor.  After Spain’s elimination, José Antonio from accounting is perilously close to the edge.
 
Comedian Chelsea Handler has signed a major deal to bring a late night show to Netflix.  The show will be geared mostly towards people who don’t understand time.

A computer program at England’s Reading University has reportedly passed the Turing test for artificial intelligence, fooling a group of judges into believing it was human.  “I don’t understand,” said head judge Manti Te’o, “it told me it loved me.”

Don’t score an own goal on the company or we’ll kill you!

Internal Memo for Friday, 6/6/14

Good Afternoon,
 
Before we begin, I’d like to take a moment to thank all of the people who made this weeklong string of memos possible.
 
Now, onto the business.
 
Scientists now believe humans may have played a major role in the extinction of the wooly mammoth.  Surprise, surprise.

Archaeologists in China have discovered the world’s oldest pair of pants.  They belonged to the world’s oldest prude.

As you may remember, I reported yesterday that Anna from accounting had yet again beaten The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask for charity.  It has since come to my attention that she neglected to kill all of the gold skulltulas in the Swamp Spider House, thus nullifying her agreements with all charities involved.  All of the money she raised will be returned, and she has assured me she will be extra vigilant when she attempts the task next year.

An Indonesian volcano erupted for the first time in 15 years last week, reminding everyone that the Earth has been around for billions of years and can kill all of us in any number of ways at absolutely any time.
 
Kardashian Kourtney Kardashian is pregnant with her third child.  Sister Khloe Kardashian remains childless, while other sister Kim Kardashian has two children, Kanye and North West.
 
Jerry, “D-Day” does not stand for “Denny’s Day.”
 
A group of scientists and conservators at Harvard has determined that a book in the school’s library is bound in human skin.  Like everything else at Harvard bound in human skin, the book looks a lot more impressive than it is.

A Ghanaian witch doctor claims to have put a curse on Portuguese soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo, who may miss the World Cup with a leg injury.  “You think his leg is bad,” said Nana Kwaku Bonsam, whose name translates as “The Devil of Wednesday,” “you should see his penis.”
 
Be sure to stop by the ninth floor pavilion and check out our new exhibition: “Famous South Africans: From Mandela to Dave Matthews,” running now until June 7th!
 
A new study suggests that boys with autism are more likely to have been exposed to higher levels of hormones while in the womb.  Meanwhile, several old studies have proven that vaccines save millions of lives each year.
 
Russian President Vladimir Putin is attempting to strengthen Russian ties with North Korea.  “I saw how that feisty little dictator viciously executed his uncle on a whim,” Putin told a Russian newspaper, “and I thought, ‘I bet we’d be friends.’”

That’s all, my Mountains!  Let’s crush it this weekend!
