No matter how your day goes... rest easy knowing that you didn't ruin a million dollar painting. Security cameras at a Taiwan art exhibition captured the moment a 12-year-old tripped and punched a hole in a $1.5 million Paolo Porpora oil painting. Oh dang!!
Sun Chi-hsuan, the exhibit's organizer, said the boy's family will not be charged for restoration costs and the $1.5 million painting, titled "Flowers," was insured. "The painting's bottom right is damaged," Sun told reporters. "The boy's hand made contact with the artwork and left a hole the size of a fist." A post on the exhibition's Facebook page thanked restoration specialist Tsai Shun-jen for helping to quickly restore the 350-year-old painting.
Former NSYNC-er Joey Fatone "posted" a message to One Direction, now that they have announced their 'hiaitus' saying, "everything is about to be terrible." Now this is probably not true... but you know he was probably thinking it! (some nsfw language)
"Dear Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan and Harry Styles,
"Hey guys. It's Joey Fatone, former member of NSync and current announcer on Family Feud, the job I've always dreamed of. This weekend, while sitting on the toilet and crying (I LOVE MY LIFE!!!) I flipped through my iPhone and saw that you'd announced a "one-year hiatus" beginning in March. I just wanted to congratulate you guys and wish you well! I'm sure 2016 will be a wonderful time for everyone from One Direction to pursue some independent projects before regrouping as a stronger band one year later! Here's to spreading your wings!
"Here's how it's gonna go down, fellas. While you're all on hiatus, Harry will record some dope singles with Beyonce, Ryan Adams and Wiz Khalifa, come out with a killer solo album produced by Pharrell and Timbaland, cut his hair, dye his hair, do a second less awesome album, let his hair grow super long and wear it in two braids, crush a self-effacing cameo in a Judd Apatow movie, buzz his hair and release a third, self-produced album on which he hints at being bisexual that everyone will call his "best work."
"The rest of you are fu--ed. I mean fucked. I am the second most-successful former member of NSync and I am Joey Fatone. Say that outloud to yourself: "Besides Justin Timberlake, Joey Fatone is the most successful member of NSync."
"Here's me being a spokesman for Bosley hair restoration last year:
"Best case scenario, you'll do a 6-week stint in Minions: The Musical! on Broadway before you bounce around different hosting jobs on channels like Spike and TruTv. Do you know what Chris Kirkpatrick is doing? Because I don't. He's completely unreachable. He might be managing a Best Buy in Sacramento, he might be dead. No one knows. Louis, I'm looking at you.
"There is one exception: If one of you is gay you might have a shot. Wait till One Direction has been dead for two years, kiss your hot boyfriend at an awards show, then ride that relevance like a beautiful boner and pray to god you get a show on Bravo. "It's not that you guys aren't talented, it's that Harry is so, so much cuter, cooler and more talented than the rest of you. Deep down, you've always known that, but you will never truly understand it until you're in your grimy little condo, sitting in your boxers, sucking a chow mein noodle off your Playstation controller and watching Harry blow it up on SNL.
"Jesus christ I wish I was still in NSync. Jesus…JESUS F--! I would give all my hair to go back to that.
"Anyway, enjoy the next few months, One Direction, because they're your last.
Lance has chimed in on its authenticity.
.@alliesissons lol. Of course not! Joey would never misspell 'NSYNC ! 😂
The Presidential race just saw a major contender join. An independent named "Deez Nuts," filed a statement of candidacy with the Federal Election Commission Sunday. In fact, the candidate from Iowa, is polling at 9 percent in North Carolina for President of the United States.
Mr. Nutz, is actually a 15 year-old boy named, Brady Olson who was inspired by our cat from Louisville, "Limberbutt McCubbins." Brady says, "The next step is to get some party nominations, like the Minnesota Independence Party or the Modern Whig Party." He goes on to say, "It would also be great to find a VP, preferably McCubbins because the Nuts/McCubbins ticket sounds amazing."
Thank you Canadian airline, WestJet. The video shows this flight attendant demonstrating how to use a seat-belt and oxygen mask with spirit hands and flair before receiving a round of applause from the passengers on the plane.
Flying home from the fabulous TPLO conference.... We had the best in flight crew on West Jet. Laughed so hard. Only had a chance to video the French portion of the pre flight instructions ! Enjoy, we certainly did !
Captain Michael Murdoch with the Bullitt County Sheriff's Office explaned, "Zero dollars of taxpayer money was used to purchase these items." BOOM! This new gear was purchased with help from LMPD and forfeited drug money. That's why Captain Murdoch went to Facebook, thanking drug dealers for getting caught. Last year the sheriff's office used drug money to buy new furniture and a $35,000 vehicle for the drug unit.
Louisville is having the best week ever. You've got to see this goal by Aodhan Quinn in the 19th minute against the Tulsa Roughnecks. Sick!!! The astonishing goal made it into SportsCenter's Top Ten list at #5.
For the first time ever a Major League soccer team is coming to Louisville to take on Louisville City FC at Slugger Field. The match against Orlando City will be August 25th at 7:30 pm and will be the cities biggest summer sporting event with international superstars like Kaka and Brek Shea on Orlando's roster.
Yesterday Ellen DeGeneres took the stage at the D23 Expo to announce some details to the sequel of "Finding Nemo." Like..... it will be set six months after "Nemo" and centers around Dory (voiced by Ellen DeGeneres) actually remembering something... her family. There's her mom, Jenny (voiced by Diane Keaton) and her dad, Charlie (Eugene Levy). She meets Hank, the octopus, voiced by Modern Family's Ed O'Neill, a beluga whale voiced by Modern's Ty Burrell, and many others. Gotta admit, kinda excited about this one...
On "Live With Kelly & Michael" Thursday, Michael Strahan and fill-in co-host Busy Phillipps did a blind taste test of tap water from a few cities across the United States. Busy picked Louisville's water as her favorite. Then it was, "how do you pronounce Louisville?"
You won't believe which cities in the nation have the best tap water! WATCH Busy Philipps and Michael Strahan taste some of the best tap water! Rodale's Organic Life
This poor reporter from Queensland, Alex Bernhardt, was filming a news report on Tuesday when she was bitten by an ant. Keep in mind, this is Australia. These ants are NOT the cute little ants you find on your counter, but the ants you find in your nightmares.
Stand up, sir... stand up! John Brown, the co-host of Fox35's Good Day Orlando, briefly walked off the set on Friday after going into a rant in the middle of a segment about the Kardashians and Kylie naming her pet rabbit, Bruce. Yep, he just snaps....and lets everyone know that he's sick of this family.
Oh dang. 'ZPL up in Indy held a contest for dads to prove they were One Direction's biggest fan, and the winner would get free seats to the band's July 31st show. So what did, Roger Fraser, a father of two girls in Tennessee do? He got a "I [Heart] 1D" tattoo on his arm, only to find out that out-of-state residents were ineligible to win.
got this tattoo to help my daughter win a contest well lol we can't win because we are not a resident, retweet !!!!! pic.twitter.com/X3FfXvh07k
Nooooooo!! Not only does Roger have no regrets about getting the tattoo, and plans to keep it forever, but he and his daughters still got to attend the concert. The family had to drive from Tennessee to Indianapolis and purchase tickets themselves, but they still got to see their favorite band.
Jon Stewart said farewell to The Daily Show after 16 years in the host's chair Thursday night. A ton of people showed up to say 'goodbye' including former correspondent, Steve Carell.
Stephen Colbert's goodbye was the best part of the show. He first offered a reference to The Lord of the Rings" before segueing into a heartfelt thank you to Jon. "We owe you because we learned from you," Colbert says. "... You were infuriatingly good at your job, OK? ... All of us are better at our jobs because we got to watch you do yours."
Jon Stewart closed with an emotional thanks to his co-workers and the Daily Show audience, who he said kept him going on days he felt like the show wasn't all there.
Meet Nancy Hoggert. Nancy says she's been in an intimate relationship with Bigfoot since 2008, and they are trying to start a family. Of course she is.
"He is so sweet and caring…he brings me flowers and mushrooms. Holds me while we stargaze. The only downside is that he don't speak English. I have taught him how to say my name, but it's kind of garbled and he mispronounces it…'Nunnnsay'"
"Once I'm pregnant, Bigfoot, or John as I call him, and I are going to settle down and live a quiet domesticated life in my house. He loves living in the forest, but I'm sick of the long-distance relationship. I have to commute for three hours to be with my man. It's getting old and gas is expensive."
She's also going to legally change her last name to Nancy Bigfoot. Will she reveal him to the public? "Nah, Government scientists will just take and dissect him or try to turn him into a solider to fight ISIS or something. You know how the government is."
She did say she will sell pictures and samples of Bigfoot's fur through a website she plans to set up. Oh…ok. You should probably read the full story INCLUDING GRAPHIC DETAILS KINDA NSFW HERE.
