ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED: The Oscars!

#OscarsSoDiverse am I right? On Monday morning here in Australia, Jimmy Kimmel was hosting the 90th annual Academy awards. SPOILER ALERT The Shape Of Water took home best picture, and Guillermo Del Toro best director, while Gary Oldman and Frances McDormand took home their respective best actor Oscars. I think we can all agree though, that the real winner was diversity and inclusion.

But what really matters is all the juicy scandals that went down. Did they give away that jetski? Who’s stealing people’s oscars, and what on earth is an ‘inclusion rider?’

REAL TALK: Trump Tariff!

We’ve got flip flopping on gun control, and tariffs!! In the last week or so we’ve had various moves from the trump administration on gun control policy and on international trade. Trump has decided to slap a 25% tariff on steel and aluminium imports, leading to fears of an international trade war kicking off. 

In the wake of the parkland shooting, trump has also suggested gun control measures that would’ve had Obama assassinated, although he walked them right back a few days later. We ask whether America will ever be able to push for gun control for more than two weeks, and if a trade war is about to shoot the world economy in the foot.

Let’s Get Weird: Faceless Toads!

Today on International Women’s day, what better to report on the amount of housework Aussie men compared to the rest of the world. In further, weird news, Is there such thing as a faceless animal? Is the tooth fairy been holding out on you in 2018? Find out the answers to these burning questions.

Sportsball: Warner Vs De Kock

This week David ‘the bull’ turned ’the reverend’ warner is slipping back Into old habits. Independant Media has leaked security footage of the tea break showing Warner needing to be restrained by teammates. The opposing cricketer he is attempting to get at is South Africa’s Quinton de Kock. Sources say this all came about as a result of an hour long sledging session on the field. We figure out who is soft. Who is hard and whether ones wife is ever off limits.

That extravagant smorgasbord of juicy news is all we got for you this week, we hope like hell you had some fun with us, if you did, tell a friend and if you didn’t, tell us why! Love yuuuuuuzz.
