Bill Maher #327 Headline Predictions

by Catherine Giordano

Royal Baby Prince George Walks
Headline: Royal Baby Does Something Every Baby Does

Real Time with Bill Maher, episode 327, which aired on August 1, 2014 was the last show before the August vacation.  It’s Maher’s traditional for the last show before he leaves for vacation to a segment about the headlines we might see while the show is on hiatus. Here are the headlines Maher predicted:
Mass Illness on Carnival Cruise Liner
Royal Baby Does Something Every Baby Does, World is Blown Away
Gun Accident Claims Life of Exactly the Kind of person You’d Expect
Scientists Discover Mice Have Been Bullshitting Them for Decades
Maylasian Airlines Lands One
That Thing the NSA Says It Doesn’t Do, It Does
In 5-4 Decision Supreme Court Rules Female Orgasm “Unconstitutional”
NFL Season Begins. Americans Realize How Much Soccer Blows
GM Recalls Three Remaining Cars

  Thank you for liking, sharing and tweeting this post. 
 
Here’s the YouTube video of the segment.

 

 
I decided to try making up some of my own:
Shark-Wrestling
Not really Putin,

 
Shirtless Putin Wrestles Shark
 Obama Neglects to Say “God Bless You” When Boehner Sneezes 
Tea Party Candidate Punches Out GOP Opponent in Brawl over Primary Results
 
Why not make up a few of your own?  Put them in the comments section. Give it a try. You can do it. I'm not particularly clever and I came up with three in three minutes.
