TIGER WOODS CAN’T BE BOUGHT
If you haven’t been keeping up with the golf world, the PGA has a new competitor spending big bucks to get players to defect. LIV Golf is a league backed up by the Saudi Arabian government, which has raised more than a couple eyebrows from people who believe players shouldn’t cozy up with governments who allegedly do things like this. Well… some players have taken the bait and been lambasted, but one golfer is not among them. Tiger Woods. Greg Norman, who was handed a three billion dollar budget to try and round up the best golfers in the world for the league, said in an interview that Tiger refused to accept an offer in the “high nine digits”. Meaning close to a billion dollars. Say what you want about Tiger, but that’s pretty amazing.
FLIER BUSTED FOR BEING AN EGG MCMUFFIN MULE
There is nothing better than sinking your teeth into a delicious Egg McMuffin in the morning. Well, one traveler is learning the hard way that you shouldn’t save leftovers across international lines. The plane passenger was flying from Indonesia to Australia and had two sausage and egg McMuffins and a ham croissant in their luggage… once they arrived in Australia, a snitch dog named Zinta found the stowaway items and slapped them with a nearly $2000 fine! The Aussies are super-strict on what foods come into the country, even since an outbreak of Foot And Mouth Disease in Indonesia. Bah, dah dah DAH dah, he’s not lovin’ it.
MINI GOLF RECORD SET IN KENTUCKY

The record was 1,440 holes, and they crushed it by playing just shy of 2,100! No word on how many clown teeth were putted-out in the attempt.
