Co-Ed Sports League Provides Local Man Opportunity to Showcase Dark Side to New Girlfriend

Why So Serious?

INDIANAPOLIS — Standing over a bloodied co-ed Sunday softball umpire and berating him with a litany of obscenity-laced death threats over a blown call, John Smallwood showcased his yet-to-be-revealed dark side to new girlfriend Amber Peterson.

“I thought it could be something fun for us to do with our friends,” said Peterson, “We have only been dating five months, and so far, John's been nothing but a gentleman, but . . . my God.” Peterson says she saw the inevitable future husband and father Smallwood would become as he was dragged away from the field by three teammates. The icing on the cake, she says, was when Smallwood put his Oakley sunglasses on the back of his head. “I saw years of getting ejected from the bleachers at little league games, throwing lawn chairs at soccer linesmen, and having to apologize to neighbors and possibly members of the clergy as we walk back to the parking lot, and I just don’t know if I can do it.”

At the printing of this newsletter, Smallwood was describing in detail how, in comparison to the umpire, what he left in the toilet that morning was more deserving of life.

After Spokesperson Contract Terminated, Green M&M Launches OnlyFans Account

McLEAN, VA — Following the announcement Monday that the candy maker is putting an indefinite pause on the spokes candies, M&M’s Ms. Green has launched an OnlyFans account to “give the people what they want.” Ms. Green’s partnership with OnlyFans will give subscribers access to content the “mainstream media” couldn’t handle. Her announcement to join the platform was accompanied by a video of Ms. Green kicking off her sensible sneakers and slipping back on her provocative pumps. She then winks into the camera and uses her index finger to beckon the viewer towards her. The promo for her page debuted right before her appearance on Tucker Carlson. During her interview, Ms. Green promised a visibly salivating Carlson, “the only thing that’ll melt in their hands are my subscribers.”
