Leo’s Dodgy Meal Cooking, Office Bombing, and Jared Leto’s ‘Gender Neutral’ Skincare Launch
A new faux pas at the office appeared this week: “desk bombing”. It involves strolling over to someone’s desk in the office and talking to them about the hind legs.
The warning sounded about the dangers of “desk bombing”
Emailing or texting them is, we’re told, preferable and less invasive. I understand the importance of personal space, but after three years of working from home, the prospect of someone calling without warning to ask a question and speak to me in person sounds extremely appealing.
Leo’s meals turn the nation’s stomach too far into a concoction
Once again, Leo Varadkar’s unappetizing meals have become a topic of discussion online. First there was a crepe so thin it was see-through, then a solemn birthday where the celebratory cake of choice was a Battenberg. Which, according to Irish comedian Fiona Frawley, has made the cake “the official symbol of Irish austerity”.
This week he praised his other half, Matt, for cooking all of their meals and, as proof, shared a photo of the contents of their fridge full of 16 lunchboxes – without lids – containing sausages, eggs, cheese. ham and pancakes. How depressing can a four-day cold sausage lunch be? Shortly after the photo was shared, the Food Safety Authority of Ireland issued a warning about the dangers of preparing food too long before consumption and the need to store edibles safely — with lids on. Maybe skip the food posts for a while, Leo.

The 83-year-old actor “cast a look that would maim, if not kill” and reportedly reply, “He tried. The little c**t,” before immediately bursting into laughter. A response that deserves his own standing ovation .
Politician makes porn to ‘support’ sex workers
The most bizarre and arguably scariest report of the week features New York congressional candidate Mike Itkis. Mike is currently campaigning and thought the best way to show his support for legalizing sex work was to release his own sex tape titled – get ready – Bucket List Bonanza.
He described the film as a “conversation piece” and hopes it will show solidarity with sex workers. I mean, where to start with that? This raises so many questions, the most pertinent being: Surely there are other ways to show your support?
Jared Leto launches beauty product line with ‘tumbleweed’ shampoo
It’s getting harder and harder to keep up with the glut of celebrities launching new skincare lines. In the wake of Brad Pitt, Jared Leto launched Twentynine Palms, a line of gender-neutral cosmetics. “I’ve never really been into beauty products,” he said. vogue magazine.
Video of the day
Which is a bold statement to make when launching your own face creams. He continued, “But I’m interested in the idea of taking care of ourselves in the most natural way possible.” And that presumably includes $50 for her “tumbleweed shampoo.”
