Talking Burt Macklin for FBI Head, a Zuul Dinosaur, and a HARRY POTTER Mystery

Gather ’round, gals and ghouls because it’s time for another rip-roarin’ adventure into Sillytown, population: us! That’s right, it’s FINALLY Friday, and after the week we’ve ALL had, it stands to reason that every single person on this here blue marble we call home could all use a bit of jocular release with the sort of news that makes you go, “awhaaaaaaaaa?!” (Or, if you’re Tim “The Tool Man” Taylor, it sounds more like “ooouuuaahh?”)

So why don’t you join your hostess with the mostest, Jessica Chobot, as she and her merry band of stone-cold weirdos—including music editor Matt Grosinger, associate editor Kyle “The Kandyman” Anderson, and managing cold brew editor, Alicia Lutes (hey wait! That’s ME!)—as they talk down the day’s doofy doings.

Like…didja hear about the one where Chris Pratt put his own Burt Macklin into the ring for James Comey’s replacement at the FBI? It’s true! We’re even doing a poll on Twitter about it, if you’re into that sort of thing.

Or what about the bit about Zuul—no, not that one, the dinosaur one. You heard me: the Ghostbusters baddie has a striking resemblance to a newly discovered dino and we’re head-over-club-tail for this new trend of naming ancient creatures after pop culture characters. Now where’s my fuzzy Falcor dragondino?!

And last but not least, there’s a mystery that needs solvin’—and it’s magical to boot! Strange things are afoot at the Circle J.K. Rowling, where we heard this week that a handwritten short story about James Potter and Sirius Black was stolen. (This is where that accio spell could come in MIGHTY HANDY IRL. Ugh.) Now…was it a burglary or simply a case of someone throwing back a few too many Bungbarrel Spiced Meads and misplacing the thing? WE MAY NEVER KNOW—unless there is some sort of magical equivalent of Carmen Sandiego.

What sort of mythical creature would YOU name a dinosaur after? Let us know in the comment below!
