Here Are Some Of The Most Awesome Signs From The March For Science

Thousands of people gathered in hundreds of cities Saturday to show their support for science and demand evidence-based policy in the wake of President Donald Trump’s anti-science agenda.

The March for Science, a series of rallies around the world, took place on Earth Day to highlight the need to fight the devastation that Trump’s environmental policies would inflict on the planet.

And of course, all those science lovers came with pretty great signs. Here are some of the best, cleverest and most poignant signs we’ve seen so far.

Wait, Rob Lowe Is The New KFC Colonel?

Hold up. Wait, what? Rob Lowe is the new KFC colonel?

Guess so. The fast food company announced Friday that it has selected the actor to become the latest in a long list of colonels ― a group that has included comedians like Darrell Hammond and Norm Macdonald in the past.

In his first commercial for the company, Lowe dons an astronaut suit and proclaims his intent to blast a new chicken filet sandwich called the Zinger into space for some reason. 

“The time has come to explore beyond our known horizons to push KFC’s spicy, crispy chicken sandwich to new heights,” he says.

“Sure, there’ll be questions,” he continues. “Like why.”

We don’t really have many questions, but Lowe did put out a statement on Friday that was rather serious considering the circumstances.  

“My grandfather was the head of the Ohio chapter of the National Restaurant Association in the 1960s and took me to meet Colonel Harland Sanders when I was a kid,” Lowe said. “It was a big deal.”

He added, “I thought this would be a nice homage to both Colonel Sanders and to my grandfather.”

Anyway, it’s a commercial for a chicken sandwich featuring a celebrity. You get it.

This ‘Minority Report’ Spoof With Donald Trump Is Too Close To Reality For Us

Tom Cruise’s 2002 sci-fi flick “The Minority Report” was supposed to be a cautionary tale about how people can be convicted of crimes before they’re committed.

As chilling as that movie was, it’s a hell of a lot scarier starring Donald Trump, as this Funny Or Die spoof proves.

30 Years Ago, Bill Murray Called A Full Cubs Game And It Was Glorious

Most people know Bill Murray’s affection for the Cubs from his antics during last year’s legendary season, when the team broke the curse and won their first championship since 1908.

Back in April of 1987 ― 30 years ago this week ― Murray was still hanging around Wrigley Field, cheering on his favorite team, much to the delight of … well, anyone watching.

While subbing in for Hall Of Fame announcer Harry Caray, Murray joined broadcaster Steve Stone for a full game against the then Montreal Expos.

The commentary that follows should be featured somewhere in the Hall Of Fame at Cooperstown if it isn’t already. Below is a video of some of the highlights.

A Woman Announced Her Pregnancy With A Unicorn Frappuccino

A woman in Arizona has taken the Unicorn Frappuccino craze to a new level.

A Starbucks barista named Julie Renee tweeted a photo of the colorful drink with the words “you’re gonna be a dad” written on the cup.

“A customer ordered this to tell her husband that she’s pregnant,” she wrote in the tweet.

Renee told People the customer had just found out she was pregnant and stopped by Starbucks to pick up the Unicorn Frappuccino on her way to tell her husband.

“The lady just came through our drive thru at Starbucks and asked us to write on it for her!” she said. “So we did, and we tried to make it extra pretty for the news as well.”

It seems the expectant mother passed on getting a second frappuccino for herself, and based on the reviews of the drink, we can’t say we blame her (and can’t imagine it would help with the whole morning sickness thing).

Congratulations to the parents-to-be!

Mike Pence Forced A Plane Of Journalists To Watch ‘Hoosiers’

Vice President Mike Pence thinks “Hoosiers” is the best sports movie ever — an assertion many would contest. But, alas, he still forced an entire plane of journalists to watch the 1986 film. 

While aboard Air Force 2 en route to Australia from Indonesia on Friday, the VP’s press secretary told the plane that Pence specifically requested they “would all be required to watch” the movie, according to the pool report of Pence’s travels.

Pence apparently also said that he believes “Hoosiers” is the “greatest sports movie ever made.” Let’s outline why that might not be the case, Mike.

For one, the film is about a team of white basketball players who beat an all-black team. Yes, we know the film is about underdogs! It’s a “Cinderella” story! It’s based on history! However, Milan High’s 1954 underdog story paled in comparison to the one that came right after.

Crispus Attucks High of Indianapolis won two straight titles after Milan and brought about Basketball Hall of Famer Oscar Robertson. The Attucks Tigers were bigger underdogs than Milan and were the first all-black high school team anywhere to win such a title — in a country where Brown v. Board of Education had been decided just a year prior.

“Hoosiers” was a fine enough story of overcoming all odds and, yes, Gene Hackman is a gem, but there are racial implications of the story being told that cannot go unnoticed.

Another reason “Hoosiers” isn’t the “greatest sports movie ever made” is because, well, we’ll let these people tell you:

Also, as per Deadspin, isn’t “Hoosiers” a movie that “virtuous white men from Indiana are supposed to like”? Yes. The answer is yes.

Perhaps the best thing to come out of this dustup is that “Hoosiers” director David Anspaugh and writer Angelo Pizzo both weighed in. In a combined statement, they said they hoped Pence would “talk to his about the most important thematic through line in the movie,” noting that “nothing can be accomplished without working together for the same goal.” 

What a time to be alive.

Bartenders’ Age-Guessing Experiment Shows Why They Need To Check IDs

If this experiment is any indication, your neighborhood bartender is probably better at making drinks than guessing how old you are.

Watch barkeeps with three weeks to nearly 40 years of experience attempt to determine whether people are underage. The drink slingers checked out 10 participants in the stunt and let’s just say the results, like a Bloody Mary, were mixed.

“I’m glad I check IDs,” one bartender said in the Cut video after their true ages were revealed.

“I would have carded everybody here, for the record,” another declared.

A toast to keeping it real, bartenders.
