Politics, death, and… ghosts? The top stories this week have been nothing short of frightening, but what more can we expect from the horror show that is 2020?
But one story that’s really got the internet scratching its collective head is all about one weird-looking dog…
We’ve rounded up the best stories from the week, but this one might just be the top.
Carole Baskin has had a horrible reminder of the past when her ex-husband’s family decided to coincidentally buy an ad slot during her Dancing With the Stars debut.
The advert was an emotional plea to the public to disclose any further information that they might have had about the “disappearance” of Carole’s millionaire husband, Don Lewis, and it was delivered by Don’s children as well as his PA and attorney.
Even despite the commercial distracting viewers from her performance (which might have actually been a good thing considering she’s got a low-low score of eleven), the reality-star turned dancer had a savage response for all the haters.

If you thought Carole was having a rough week, then you probably don’t want to hear about how Prince Harry has been left “demoralized” after he was stripped of his military titles.
But because he’s given his royal titles up, this harsh consequence has quickly followed.
In Meghan Markle’s book, Finding Freedom, authors Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand offered us an insight into the whole thing, saying “the most demoralizing aspect of the new deal was his [Prince Harry] being stripped of his honorary military appointments that had been awarded to him as a senior royal.”
Read more about this “new deal” the former royal couple has been offered.
As children start returning back to normality, whatever that means during a global pandemic, schools are now implementing new rules to try and keep students safe.
At Gateway Middle School, Anthony Ruelas was suspended for “breaking the rules” after he decided to against the teacher’s instructions to “remain calm and seated” while a fellow student in his class was having a severe asthma attack.
However, instead of being applauded for potentially saving her life, Anthony was written up and suspended for 2 days by the head of the school district. His mom was outraged, as were the public and they rallied round to offer their support to the fifteen-year-old.

The President of the United States has never really been known for his manners, quite the opposite really, but hardly anyone ever calls him out for it.
Donald Trump finally met his match after Ellesia Blaque, a Democratic voter who was asking him about the Republican healthcare plan, stopped the President from interrupting her mid-question with a good ol’ fashioned “Please stop and let me finish my question, sir.”
Polite and bold. We have no choice but to stan.
Trump looked slightly taken aback by the woman in purple, and weirdly enough, allowed her to carry on with her questioning.

Tragedy has struck ICON park in Orlando, Flordia this week as the horrifying news of a man falling from the “world’s tallest swing ride” started circulating online.
Jacob was conducting a safety test at 200 feet when he plunged to his death and the owners of the attraction have been left deeply “saddened” by it.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Jacob’s family and friends during this difficult time.

The British royals have really dominated the news this week as Prince William and Kate Middleton made the headlines after their savage swipe at Meghan Markle during a birthday message to Prince Harry.
The royal couple decided to post a photo that only included Harry, William, and Kate… Did they forget that Meghan and Archie existed? There are tonnes of photos with all the royals in it, but fans couldn’t help but point out that they specifically used one that excluded Harry’s family.
Petty, if I do say so myself.
What does it really mean?

This may have been the announcement we have been waiting for. South Park recently revealed that they will be doing an hour-long pandemic special and it’ll be coming out later this month.
It will be addressing the coronavirus outbreak and the subsequent lockdown, all from the somewhat unhinged perspective of the South Park residents.
The official description of the show reads: “Randy Marsh comes to terms with his role in the COVID-19 outbreak as the on-going pandemic presents continued challenges to the citizens of South Park.
Randy Marsh comes to terms with his role in the COVID-19 outbreak as the on-going pandemic presents continued challenges to the citizens of South Park.”
We’ll just have to wait and see.

One of the saddest stories this week came from California, where the blazing fires are still destroying thousands of acres of land.
The sixty-three-year-old woman identified as Diana Jones has been working for the department for over 4 years now and her 5th anniversary was set for November.
Sandra Moore, acting forest supervisor released a statement saying this: “This was a tragic incident and our hearts go out to the family, friends, and colleagues of the fallen firefighter. Right now we are committed to providing support to those involved while safely continuing firefighting operations.”
RIP Diana Jones.

Now I know that Halloween is around the corner, but there is no need for this. If 2020 wasn’t bad enough already, now we’ve got to deal with ghosts. Ghosts. No thank you. I’m out.
While trying to educate themselves further on the Civil War, Yuelling and his family had a field trip to the location of Gettysburg National Military Park where they witnessed some strange things, including “shapes the size of humans.”

You’ll be happy to know that the number 1 article this week is actually a very wholesome one. America’s oldest WWII veteran celebrated his 111th birthday and it’s something everyone needs to see.

She’s a rare Mexican breed.
Which means she’s totally hairless.
Her dark, glossy look closely resembles something else…
Can you see the resemblance?
Piper is truly majestic.
And she thinks the statue comparisons are hilarious.
And that lustrous shine really emphasizes her statuesque qualities.
Coconut oil – and lots of it!
We’re oddly jealous.
This picture is pretty hard to deny.
Even when pulling silly faces – which is pretty rare for a dog!
She was born to be in front of the camera.
Now that’s a statue!
