ODO 61: Plastic Money and Playing Jesus
I’m a bit behind on prep this week so stories get pulled a little more on the fly. In Entertainment I’ve got the controversy around ABC cancelling “Last Man Standing” and the hackers trying to ransom the latest “Pirates” movie. Weird news brings a story about sex lessons from porn stars and getting “Winstoned.” The listener voted “Jackass of the Week” tells the tale of a pastor who died trying to walk on water, but with a twist.
Many conservatives are claiming that Tim Allen’s comedy, “Last Man Standing” was cancelled as a result of his conservative political views and recent comments he made about being a Republican in Hollywood. ABC insists that the cancellation had to do with schedule changes and trying to cut costs from shows that they do not actually own.
Jim Parsons, who plays Dr. Sheldon Cooper on “The Big Bang Theory,” and partner of 14 years, Scott Spiewak got married
I met this guy (the one with the mic) 14 years ago today and it was the best thing that ever happened to me, no contest. One of his greatest gifts to me is that he no longer takes me to sing karaoke. Also, I believe this was a selfie with an actual camera, as our phones couldn’t do that back then hahaha! #todd #anniversary ❤️
