The Bumblebee is now on the Endangered Species List. . .

If anybody here makes a BEE MOVIE joke about a serious story about a species who absence could CRIPPLE OUR ECOSYSTEM, so help me God. . . .

There are actually hundreds of species of bumblebee (or fluffy fat nope, as I prefer to call them); the one that's endangered is the rusty-patched bumblebee.

Well, in happier news...

The Patriots rally big time in the 4th quarter of Super Bowl LI, pulling out of the largest point deficit and going into overtime for the first time in super bowl history to beat the Falcons 34-28 to earn their fifth Super Bowl title. Brady received his 4th Super Bowl MVP, another league record. I have to say, it was one hell of game.

Also, Goodell had to eat some major crow and make a lot of awkward handshakes after everything was said and done. Also, he got booed on the way to the podium.

It's unfortunate they had to put the bear down. However, I like how the article chooses to type in large bold, "BEAR WAS DESTROYED". Interesting choice of words.

Harambe became a meme for multiple reasons.

1) there are far less gorillas left in the world than there are bears. It's a far more controversial thing to kill an endangered animal than it is to kill a bear.

2) he died in a very tragic and controversial way.

3) people just would not stop making jokes about it. To the point where the zoo actually had to take down its Facebook and Twitter.

" we're over here trying to mourn our gorilla, and you're making a mockery of our loss!"
