In support of Beyonce at the Grammys, let's answer a poll.

I'm rooting for Beyonce, but her new (ok... it's not that new) single 7/11 still has me guessing.

Which of the following was the inspiration for Beyonce's 7/11?

I done turned Havana to Atlanta

I'm sure you've all heard that the U.S. is normalizing relations with Cuba. But the bigger question is, does this prove that the Illuminati are real, and that the new Pope, Jay Z, and Beyonce are key members?

Let's summarize the evidence:
  1. The POPE is in on negotiations. While this may not be that surprising from a political perspective, it's widely (I use this term loosely, but it was even on buzzfeed!) hypothesized that Pope Francis was elected pope because of his Illuminati ties.
  2. Beyonce and Jay-Z had a much hyped trip to Cuba in April 2013. Only a year and a half later, US is normalizing relations with Cuba. UNREAL.
  3. Jay-Z is the founder of ROCNATION sports, founded in 2013. Baseball talent in Cuba means he therefore has strong financial interests in Cuba.
  4. Jay-Z's song "Open Letter."
"Obama said, 'Chill. You gonna get me impeached.' "

This really makes me want to use American Century Investments... naaaaahhht

I got this in my email inbox today. I cannot believe it is real. Is this supposed to be appealing to women? Good for you! You're not meek and passive! Now give us all your dollars!

Gotta love those sexist ads geared towards women.

Mean Wiseau

Finally, my piece of comparative pop culture:
