Overnight Briefing & General Reality Check - Oct 13, 2016
October 13, 2016
Trolling for publicity:
Warning --note sexual content:
It had to happen.
The Wrap reports KEN BONE, that viral internet sensation in a red-sweater who asked one question during Sunday night's presidential debate, has now been offered $100-thousand dollars to do a porn film, called... (wait for it...) "The Bone Zone."
This should not come as any surprise, since my research indicates there's already a 1986 film called "In Search Of The Golden Bone" and a porno take-off on "Game of Thrones" called... "Game of Bones." There's also oldies but goodies called "Romancing the Bone" and "Rambone."
The offer, from the folks at CamSoda.com reportedly would give Ken the cash along with 25 throwaway cameras to use for a live, hour-long broadcast.
As one fan put it on Twitter after the debate, "His name is Ken Bone and he ken bone me anytime."
FYI: There's also several legit movies containing the word "bone" which include: "The Lovely Bones" (2009), "Winter's Bone" (2010), "Rust and Bone" (2012) and "Bone Tomahawk" (2015).

Halloween is a few weeks away, but WHOOPI GOLDBERG is already in the Christmas spirit! The hilarious host of "The View" moonlights as a serious fashionista and tells Peoplemagazine that she's created a new line of holiday sweaters. The protective designer claims they're not "ugly"sweaters, but promises the collection is "fun" and "different." One features a family where one person looks different than the others because the holidays are about "love and family and being good," while other designs feature a Christmas tree that lights up, octopus-shaped menorah and dueling Santas.

A New York pharmacy is reportedly charging male customers higher prices.
Thompson Chemists pharmacy has posted signs declaring a "New Store Policy" requiring men to pay a seven-percent tax. Meanwhile, women are allowed to make purchases tax free. Pharmacy owner JOLIE ALONY says the so-called "Man Tax" has been implanted for purely political reasons. Alony explains, "We thought it'd be a great idea with all the political things going on --with CLINTON being such a woman and the other guy and his womanizing." (Still)
