Rosie O'Donnell Unloads On 'S**t Stain' Donald Trump

Ed Mazza | May 27, 2016 | Comedy
Rosie O'Donnell fired a new salvo in her ongoing war of words with Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, delivering a series of blistering barbs while speaking before a concert with Boy George and Cyndi Lauper in New York on Wednesday night.  "I would rather give birth to a flaming iguana while taking a shit," O'Donnell said in a clip posted online by the Daily Mail. "I hate him. I hate him. I'm not going to say his name."  Someone in the audience at the Beacon Theater in New York yelled "Baba Booey!" which is a nickname for longtime Howard Stern producer Gary Dell'Abate.  O'Donnell noted that she and Dell'Abate have feuded in the past, but are friends now.  However, she added, Dell'Abate is also friends with Trump.  "He is friends with the shit stain, which worries me," she said. "I worry if his shit stains have a tinge of orange."  Then she asked the audience: "Too much? Too negative?"  Cries of "NO!" echoed back.  "Eat me, Donald," she said.  O'Donnell is also active on Twitter, and on Thursday pinned a tweet predicting Trump will fall short in November: @minnielayton - truly in my heart - i believe there r more good people than bad - that he will not win - its sad how gullible some r— Rosie (@Rosie) May 26, 2016 The pair have been feuding for years, which may have began when O'Donnell memorably mimicked Trump when she was on The View in 2006: Trump has in turn repeatedly launched his own verbal bombs at O'Donnell, which came up during a debate last year when he was asked about his history of insulting women.  "You've called women you don’t like, 'fat pigs,' 'dogs,' 'slobs' and 'disgusting animals,'" moderator Megyn Kelly began.  "Only Rosie O’Donnell," Trump fired back.  The question led to a feud between Trump and Kelly.   (h/t Raw Story)   Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar,rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S.

Woman Overwhelmed By 'Super Mario Brothers' Marriage Proposal

David Moye | May 26, 2016 | Weird News
Pam Edwards thought she was just playing a Super Mario Brothers video game. She didn't realize her boyfriend, Shane Birkinbine, was game for marriage. Edwards, of Bentonville, Arkansas, didn't know the game level she was playing wasn't on the level. Birkinbine, a self-described geek, had used "Super Mario Maker," which allows players to create their own levels, to fashion a wedding proposal. Edwards was having a good run, scoring points. Then she came to a series of giant letters. Birkinbine, who was filming the proposal for YouTube, couldn't help but hint to her. "What's that say?" he says on the video.  "The blocks. It spells out your name, I think." They did, as well as the words, "Will you marry me?" Spoiler alert: Edwards says yes. But, as the video shows, she stays focused on finishing the level. The video scored big on social media, including more than 12,800 Facebook likes, according to the New York Daily News. No word on wedding plans, or whether the couple plan to have their registry at Nintendo....
