Valar Morghulis.

Valar Dohaeris.

Valar… Business.

For the first time ever, a great white shark has been spotted in the Long Island Sound. The shark settled near Greenwich, Connecticut, where it easily blended in.

At an annual charity hockey game in which he scored eight goals, Russian President Vladimir Putin tripped over a rug on the ice while waving to fans. Putin called the incident “an act of NATO aggression that will not be tolerated.”

Congratulations, Anna from Legal, on publishing your first book! Dukakis: An Erotic Journey can’t not be a hit.

A record 13.6 million viewers took in the series finale of Game of Thrones Sunday night, all from the same HBOGO account.

In further Thrones news, when conservative website The Daily Wire turned a quote from character Syrio Forel into a meme disparaging socialism, the actor who plays Forel, Milton Yerolemou, took to Twitter to express his displeasure. Many conservatives were surprised to learn that someone in a show that glorifies torture and inherited wealth while breaking all of the promises made to its supporters over the years did not share their views.

Jerry, you are not the new Matlock.

Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison was re-elected last week, despite his Liberal-National Coalition trailing in the polls for over two years. Donald Trump reportedly called to congratulate Morrison on his “big victory” and urged him not to take the country in the direction of its neighbor, Germany.

Taiwan has become the first Asian country to legalize same-sex marriage. Under the “one China” policy, the preceding sentence is nonsense.

Thanks to everyone who came out last Saturday to commemorate the ninth anniversary of Joe Sestak’s historic victory over Arlen Specter in the 2010 US Senate Democratic primary in Pennsylvania! That was some gooooood scrapple.

Actress Scarlett Johansson is engaged to SNL performer Colin Jost. “Scarlett’s already been married twice, which shows that love is a fleeting thing that ends not with eternal happiness but a bitter and lasting disappointment that strips us of our innocence and forces us to confront our own mortality in ways that lead to self-harm and perhaps the harm of others,” Johansson’s publicist said in a statement. “And the couple is very happy.”

Washington has become the first state to allow human remains to be composted. “This is an outrage,” one lawmaker who opposed the measure told reporters, “people will be rolling in their graves.”

You know nothing, Jon Sno- er, David Benioff.

Seriously, fuck that guy.

Internal Memo for Friday, 5/6/16

Good afternoon, conservative firebrands!  WHERE IS YOUR GOD NOW??

The Canadian government is working to decriminalize recreational marijuana use by early 2017.  The new law is expected to make it even harder to tell whether or not a Canadian is high.

Searcy Hayes, the 21-year-old Ted Cruz lookalike who agreed to do porn after appearing on The Maury Povich Show, says she has never heard of Cruz.  In related news, the Republican senator has ended his candidacy for president after failing to connect with his core demographic.

Is that you, Anna from Digital, or the anatomically correct sex bot you recently patented?  Glad I can’t tell!

In an effort to deter poachers, Kenya lit the largest ivory bonfire in history this week.  “This will send a very clear message to those who traffic in this precious substance,” Kenyan president Uhuru Kenyatta told reporters during the lighting ceremony.  “And if they don’t get it, we will do something even clearer: kill all the elephants.”

The US Attorney has released former Subway spokesman Jared Fogle’s pedophilic texts, one of which involves telling an associate he will “pay (him) big for a 14 or 15-year-old.”  “Jared was clearly talking about a delicious Subway sub,” Fogle’s lawyer Gary Schermerhorn told reporters on Wednesday.  “Subs, subs, subs- everybody loves subs!  Jared really liked old subs – agedas he called them.  He always liked things a little on the old side- never young.  That’s gross.  Who wants a young child- I mean, sandwich?  Who’s hungry?”

Jerry, I need to see your business cards.

Paramount Pictures is under fire for trying to make Scarlett Johansson look more Asian in her upcoming film Ghost in the Shell.  “It won’t work,” Johansson’s ex-husband Ryan Reynolds told the studio in a leaked email.  “Trust me, I’ve tried.”

North Korea is in the midst of mounting its biggest political event in 36 years.  Though details from the notoriously secretive country are hard to come by, one witness called the proceedings “a Donald Trump rally.”

SPOILER ALERT: HBO’s enormously popular Game of Thrones surprised millions last week when it was revealed to have finally jumped the shark.

More than 1,300 pounds of ancient Roman coins have been unearthed in Spain.  The discovery, valued at $1 trillion, has the potential to reduce the country’s deficit to $365,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 trillion.

Scientists from California’s HRL Laboratories may have discovered a way to “upload knowledge” to the human brain.  “We’re hoping to make this technology widely accessible by early November,” HRL’s Dr. Matthew Phillips said in a statement, “before it’s too late.”

As some of you have pointed out, there have been some inexcusable errors in recent memos.  I incorrectly stated the Golden State Warriors had beaten the Minnesota Timberwolves to reach 74 wins, when in fact they beat the Memphis Grizzlies.  And… gasp … there was a TYPO.  To you tireless workers who brought these gaffes to my attention, I say: thank you… for making it easier to fire you!  Get the hell out of here you nitpicking busybodies!  GOD it feels good to make 440 times as much as you people.
