Swingers, Satanic Essential Oils, and Megachurch Exposés, Oh My 👀🍿🧃
Here's your roundup of this week's scandals, scammers, and grifters
While we know there’s an appetite for these insane kinds or grifters, hustlers, and insane scandal, it’s been interesting to see how many contenders materialized this week for the round-up. Here are this week’s picks:
“Finance Bros Gamed the System for Hot Reservations — Until They Got Caught” - I admit, younger me would have (optimistically) been in the loop and all about Free Rezy… the only problem being that I wasn’t able to afford Le Bernardin on an entry-level PR salary… so actually, I probably would’ve hated it.
“GOP Politician Admits He & Wife Are Swingers After Leaked Photos, Still Manages To Sound Homophobic In Confession” - I’m not judging you for who you’re sleeping with, just don’t be a hypocrite. It also reminds me of the suuuper salacious Jerry Falwell story — an evangelical power-couple being taken down by the pool boy they were having an affair with? 👩🍳💋 Vanity Fair recently wrote a feature about Jerry, if you fancy a cultured detailing of the scandal.
“These Women Say Young Living Essential Oils Has Been Taken Over By Satan. Yes, Really” - I once categorized various household oils into their D&D alignments (an edible may have been involved) and essential oils obviously fell under chaotic evil, so this story checks out, I guess. 👀 the alignment chart below.
“Feds probe entrepreneur couple who cashed in on COVID testing boom - but 'didn't send customers their results': Pair set up 300 pop-up sites and flaunted Ferrari Enzo, Lamborghini, Ford GT and $1.36M home" - These modern day Bonnie and Clydes are just couples doing shitty things without any of the bada$$ factor (idk if swear words trigger spam filters, so)… But the audacity is fascinating 😒
“Case Dismissed! Judge Kills Sarah Palin's Dream of Bankrupting NYT“ - Our CGO (Chief Googling Officer) was pumped about this article because it’s bananas. I personally can’t get over that Gawker actually relaunched and I didn’t realize it until just now.
Can’t Come Soon Enough
I imagine that the way most people look forward and prepare to watch the Super Bowl is similar to how I’m feeling about the upcoming documentary, Hillsong: A Megachurch Exposed. There will be snacks… ideally cooked in one of the (edible) oils in the chart below above.
Weekly Proof That Truth Will Always Be More Scandalous Than Fiction
“Fans say Wordle is ‘broken’ after two right answers on same day” - Corporate greed seems to be (allegedly) ruining yet another fun-escape-from-reality game.
