How to Assert Dominance at Thanksgiving Dinner

Thanksgiving, a time for gratitude, family, and, if you’re feeling particularly ambitious, a chance to assert your dominance at the dinner table. Here are some foolproof strategies for those brave souls looking to leave an unforgettable impression this holiday season.

Unleash Your Hustlers University Knowledge

Begin by giving everyone, from your wide-eyed nephew to your dozing grandpa, an unsolicited, detailed lecture on your Hustlers University course. Explain every module, every assignment, and especially your groundbreaking thoughts on the future of e-commerce. The goal is to make them wish they had never asked, “So, what have you been up to?”

Convert Aunt Ethel to Crypto 

Next, target Aunt Ethel. Use the lull between the appetizer and the turkey to explain why she should invest her retirement savings in cryptocurrency. Ignore her confusion and pepper your monologue with terms like ‘blockchain’ and ‘NFTs’. Remember, the less she understands, the more successful you are.

Teabag the Gravy

It’s a risk – both from a logistical and personal injury standpoint – but if you want to assert ultimate thanksgiving dominance, drop trou and let your boys take a swim in the gravy. It’ll fill you with confidence at the dinner table as you pass on gravy, and add some extra umami flavor to the jus.

Flash Your P&L Constantly

As the turkey makes its rounds, so should your phone, with its open profit and loss statements. Make sure everyone sees how much of a financial guru you are (or aren’t). If someone tries to change the subject, bring it back with a “But have you seen my latest trades?”

Lead with Edgy Political Discussions

With everyone trying to digest their meal, drop a bombshell like, “So the Israelis are kinda nuts, right?” and watch the peaceful dinner transform into a heated political debate. Your job is to stir the pot, not to solve the Middle East crisis.

Regurgitate Jordan Peterson

As dessert arrives, it’s time to regurgitate all the Jordan Peterson content you’ve consumed. Mix his ideas with your personal life lessons, leaving your relatives to wonder if you’re a philosopher or just lost in your thoughts.

So there you have it—a foolproof guide to asserting your dominance at Thanksgiving dinner. Just remember, this approach may also assert your place at the ‘not invited next year’ list.

Man Identifies as Church to Avoid Taxes

Woodrow Pugh of Arkansas has declared himself the first man in history to self-identify as a religious institution. Pugh, who insists on being referred to by the pronouns thy/thine, has claimed tax-exempt status, citing a deep spiritual connection with being a church.

“I’ve always felt at odds in my body,” Pugh proclaimed. “Turns out, I’m not a man, I’m a church. It all makes sense now. I love to have a sewing circle inside me on Tuesday afternoons.”

The IRS has yet to comment on this divine declaration of tax evasion, but local supporters have rallied behind Pugh. “Gender dysmorphia is a real thing, and we should be respectful of others’ decisions,” commented Alex Smith, a college student and part-time barista who has recently started a GoFundMe to help Pugh install stained glass windows in his eyes.

Critics argue that Pugh’s claim is less about spiritual identity and more about the holy grail of tax loopholes. However, Pugh’s followers, primarily online avatars, have been seen changing their bios to include thy/thine pronouns in solidarity.

When asked about the logistics of his transformation, Pugh was resolute. “Every Sunday, my soul hosts a bake sale, and on Wednesdays, we have bingo night. If that doesn’t qualify me as a church, I don’t know what does,” he stated while attempting to light a votive candle in his navel.

The local diocese has been less than amused, issuing a statement that while they support personal discovery, they are pretty sure that being a church involves more than just enjoying casseroles and speaking in King James English.

As the debate rages on, Pugh continues to enjoy his newfound identity, reportedly saving a fortune on both taxes and interior decorating by claiming religious sanctuary status. The IRS, meanwhile, has been spotted baptizing their calculators and praying for guidance.

In the meantime, Pugh has announced plans for a spiritual retreat in his backyard, promising enlightenment and tax deductions for all who attend. The event will be BYOB—Bring Your Own Bible.

Parents warned to lookout for Epstein client list in halloween candy

WASHINGTON D.C. – As the spookiest night of the year approaches, parents across the nation are being warned of a new, unexpected terror: finding snippets of Jeffrey Epstein’s infamous client list hidden in their children’s Halloween candy.

The initial reports of this peculiar phenomenon began circulating in the neighborhoods surrounding Washington D.C., where parents were left aghast upon discovering tiny scrolls of paper, each bearing a name or two, nestled among the Snickers and Skittles. However, as the days have passed, similar reports have emerged from states as far-flung as California and Texas.

“I was just checking my son’s candy for any opened wrappers or suspicious-looking treats, and there it was,” said Martha Jenkins, a concerned mother from Virginia. “A tiny piece of paper with a name I’d rather not mention. I was expecting to find a razor blade or something, not a potential lead in a high-profile investigation.”

The FBI has since issued a statement urging parents to be vigilant. “We understand that this is an unusual and concerning situation,” said Special Agent Dale Cooper. “No one truly knows the length of Epstein’s client list, so this could very well be the Halloween epidemic of the year. We advise parents to thoroughly check their children’s candy and report any findings.”

While many are left wondering about the motives behind this bizarre act, some conspiracy theorists suggest it’s an elaborate scheme by whistleblowers to ensure the list reaches as many households as possible. Others believe it’s merely a distasteful prank by individuals looking to capitalize on the ongoing media frenzy surrounding the Epstein case.

Local police departments are also chiming in, with some offering “Candy X-Ray” services on Halloween night to ensure no unwanted surprises lurk within the festive treats.

As the nation braces itself for All Hallows’ Eve, parents are reminded to prioritize safety. Whether it’s double-checking for oncoming traffic while trick-or-treating or scanning candy for unexpected scrolls of scandal, this Halloween promises to be one for the history books.

Rupert Murdoch Steps Down to Focus on Running Hell

Media mogul Rupert Murdoch has decided to step down as chairman of both Fox Corp. and News Corp. While the official statement cites the transition to the role of Chairman Emeritus and the robust health of the companies as reasons, insiders have whispered about a more… infernal reason for his departure.

Beelzebub, the Prince of Demons, recently commented, “It’ll be good to have him here more. Things have been slacking a little in the underworld, and Rupert can bring a whole new level to hell!” The underworld has been buzzing with excitement at the prospect of Murdoch taking charge of its operations.

Murdoch’s decision comes after a tumultuous year for Fox, including a hefty $787.5 million settlement with Dominion Voting Systems over defamation claims. Some speculate that this was just a warm-up for the challenges he’ll face in his new role. After all, managing fiery pits and eternal damnation might be a tad more complicated than handling a media empire.

The 92-year-old Australian media tycoon began his journey in the industry nearly 70 years ago and has since built an empire that spans newspapers, television, and more. His influence has been so profound that it’s been chronicled in books and even inspired the HBO series “Succession.”

But why the sudden shift to the underworld? Some say Murdoch has been preparing for this role for years. His vast experience in managing large corporations, dealing with controversies, and navigating the complex world of media politics makes him a prime candidate for managing the intricacies of hell.

In a note to his employees, Murdoch mentioned, “For my entire professional life, I have been engaged daily with news and ideas, and that will not change.” This statement has left many wondering if the underworld will soon have its own news channel, with daily updates on the latest in eternal torment and damnation.

As Murdoch transitions to his new role, the media world watches with bated breath. Will hell become the next media hotspot? Only time will tell. But one thing’s for sure: with Murdoch at the helm, hell is about to get a lot more interesting.

Emergency alert system warns millions about missing stop loss

the Emergency Alert System (EAS)  will be used to serve the frantic world of day traders and retail investors. Gone are the days when the EAS was solely reserved for natural disasters or national emergencies. Today, it’s all about preventing financial disasters of a different kind.

As the stock market bell rang this morning, traders nationwide were jolted not by a sudden market dip, but by an unexpected EAS alert. The message was clear and, for some, a tad humiliating: “Not a test – you forgot to set a stop loss, dumbass.”

The decision to use the EAS in this manner was reportedly made after a series of unfortunate events where traders, engrossed in their multiple screens and caffeine-induced trading frenzies, forgot the cardinal rule of setting a stop loss. The aftermath? Let’s just say there were many a tear shed over spilled stocks.

Wall Street insiders have praised the initiative, claiming it’s about time the EAS was put to “proper use.” One seasoned trader commented, “I mean, sure, tornadoes and hurricanes are important. But have you ever seen a newbie day trader’s face when they realize they forgot a stop loss on a volatile stock? Now THAT’s a disaster.”

Critics argue that the system might be a tad overkill. However, proponents counter that in the age of meme stocks and unpredictable market swings, every tool should be utilized to protect the often fragile egos (and wallets) of day traders.

In related news, there are unconfirmed reports that the next EAS update might include alerts for “accidental margin calls” and “unintended short squeezes.” Day traders, keep your phones close and your stop losses closer!
