I hope you’ve managed to get over seeing “M3GAN”, because a sequel is on the way.

Nominations for the 43rd Annual Razzie Awards are in, and they have singled out “Blonde,” Disney’s “Pinocchio,” Machine Gun Kelly’s “Good Mourning” and “Morbius” among 2022’s worst movies.

Tom Hanks is also a target of this year’s nominees, earning 3 nods for Worst Actor for Disney’s “Pinocchio”, Worst Supporting Actor for “Elvis” and Worst Screen Couple for “Tom Hanks & His Latex-Laden Face (and Ludicrous Accent)” in “Elvis.” The Razzie winners will be revealed on Oscar eve, Saturday, March 11.

SCOOP OF THE DAY: Brought to you by

The head of a food watchdog has raised some eyebrows by saying that people should NOT bring treats like donuts, cakes or other sweets into the office to share with co-workers — for the sake of their colleagues’ health. Prof Susan Jebb, chairwoman of the Food Standards Agency in the UK, said that while it is a choice to eat sweet treats, people can help each other by providing a “supportive environment”, presumably by not tempting them with baked goods or other delicacies. Speaking in a personal capacity, she also likened the tempting of co-workers with sugary foods to “passive smoking” and said that the advertising of junk food is “undermining people’s free will”.

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by

The CEO of Uber has revealed what he feels the future of the ride-hailing service looks like. Dara Khosrowshahi says someday, Uber drivers won’t need 4 wheels, front-facing seats, or top speeds over 50mph (80kph) just to drive people or items around in a city. So, the company is working with automakers to create custom-built cars. He pictures electric vehicles with 3 wheels that would “have a much smaller footprint in terms of environmental but also traffic flow”. In those vehicles, passengers might sit facing one another to ease interaction. And, he says, many cities, like New York, have low speed limits which make higher horsepower, and, in turn, large and expensive battery packs, unnecessary. Uber has already pledged to use only fully electric rides in the US and Europe by 2030.

Remember the Starbucks barista, who went viral by listing on TikTok the top “icks” that customers do? Well, now it’s a thing. Illinois cosmetologist and hairdresser EmilyPytel has put together her major client annoyances, and here they are…

When a client shows up with “super dirty” hair: “We don’t want to touch your dirty hair, but it’s also not good for your color.”

Clients who stare into her eyes as she washes their hair: “Don’t do that, it’s awkward for everybody — just close your eyes”.

Tardiness: “When you show up late with a coffee in your hand, and you don’t have one for us. We love coffee too, and we need the caffeine to do your hair.”

When the client turns her head to look in the mirror before she’s done: “Please don’t do that because there’s a reason we’re turning your chair.”
