5 Ways the Queen’s Birthday Was Different in 2016

Well, that’s it. Four days of pomp and celebration to commemorate Queen Elizabeth’s birthday. Here are five ways they mixed it up in 2016 to keep her birthday fresh.

Bounce House

Tourists were agape to see the Queen bouncing away in a Bounce House situated in front of the Palace.

Busker

Is that the Queen busking for change and pound notes thrown in a guitar case? Indeed it is! Play “Fire and Rain” your Majesty!

Motorcycle Sidecar

She almost couldn’t see over the top of the sidecar she rode in from London to Edinburgh and back. In one day!

Video Gamer

The Queen was quickly identified by her username QueenBeeLizzie during her birthday online video game experience playing League of Legends, Call of Duty and Grand Theft Auto. Her constant cries of, “Time to die!” peppered her play.

Snapchat Skateboard

The Queen got major props from skaters and action sports athletes by uploading Snapchat videos while skateboarding through Piccadilly Square. Skillz!

Before They Were Famous: Lady Gaga Plays Baseball

Before Lady Gaga was famous, she briefly considered a baseball career. Music was getting on her nerves after years of practice and dedication.

“Daddy, I want to play baseball!” Gaga said one day. “I’m tired of music.”

 

vlcsnap-00009

“No, Gaga, it’s not right for you. You are an artist, not a sports lady!”

 

vlcsnap-00069

But Gaga insisted. One day she came home with a bat, ball and glove.” Teach me baseball, Daddy!” she said.

 

vlcsnap-00084

“OK, if it will get it out of your system. Here comes the pitch!”

 

vlcsnap-00085

“You missed it, Gaga!”

 

vlcsnap-00105

Eventually she got better and joined the team. Uh oh, it’s her first time at bat!

Boom! All that work with Pops paid off!

 

vlcsnap-00116

Look at Dad cheering! Too bad he was right all along. She only played the rest of the year and then concentrated on her music. If only she had stayed in baseball.

Jeff Goldblum’s Weekly Jazz Jam in Los Angeles

Back in the day, we had just built a new cigar room at the Friars Club in LA when someone said we should invite Jeff Goldblum to our kickoff smoker. As a high-profile cigar aficionado, he would be a perfect guest.

The call was made but he was busy with his own new venture, an under-the-radar weekly jazz jam in Loz Feliz. All these years later, sadly the Friars Club is gone, but the jazz night lives on at Rockwell Table and Stage. Definitely check it out if you are in the area. Here is a short clip:

7 Businesses “The Situation” Considered Before Opening His Tanning Salon

The Situation was back in the news recently after a scuffle in his tanning salon.

What, you didn’t know he had a tanning salon?

Check this out. Here are 7 other businesses he considered opening before settling on the tanning industry.

–The Situation’s Washboard Abs Laundry – lonely New Jersey housewives would do their laundry on his abs. Prices were per hour, not wash load.

–The Situation’s Media Consulting – he would help aspiring Jersey Shore residents pitch reality TV shows. Programs considered included “Forget the SATs – Success through Reality TV” and “Tan Your Way to Obscurity.”

–The Situation’s Walking Tours – Join The Situation as he takes you on walking tours of the locations he first fought, puked and shredded abs on his way to MTV glory.

–The Situation’s Sandwiches and Soda – a boardwalk sandwich shop, Sandwiches and Soda was going to feature waitresses dressed up like Snooki during the high bun years.

–The Situation’s 15 Minutes – a new local TV program, The Situation would feature different businesses on the boardwalk for 15 minute segments. The idea was to raise their profile locally in order to get more business from surrounding communities like Sea Girt and Turkey Swamp Park.

–The Situation’s Spikah Hair Salon – in this high-tech salon, men and women alike would only get one choice of hair style: The Situation’s patented High Fade complete with “Spikah,” The Situation’s nick name for Joico Ice Spiker Water-Resistant Styling Glue.

–The Situation’s Jersey Shore Gym – To make “Gym, Tan, Laundry” as easy as possible, this proposed gym would have laundry and tanning beds right on site.
