We are experiencing a slime shortage and it's all Bill Murray's fault. He started it with Ghostbusters and Nickelodeon continued it.

Fox news has ended using the phrase "fair and balanced." It's getting abandoned because of its connection to Roger Ailes and because liberals make fun of it so much. What's the new slogan? Nothing to be excited about.
