Chelsea Handler’s friends Jennifer Aniston, Sandra Bullock and Mary McCormack hilariously mocked the departing host on Tuesday’s “Chelsea Lately” series finale.

They dissed her looks — even her genitals — and pretty much everything else you can imagine. At the end, Bullock reflected, “There was one time in your life when you were somewhat cool… but you kinda blew that one.” She then brought out Handler’s former flame 50 Cent. It was all pretty great. Check out the video below! WATCH: Click Here To Read The Full Story
 
Tim Hortons

Tim Hortons

* Canada: Home of the Whopper? Aug 27, 2014 | By CAP Action War Room Architects of Burger King’s inversion claim it’s not about taxes Burger King is rolling ahead with its plan to move to Canada. It confirmed Tuesday that it will purchase Tim Hortons, a Canadian coffee and doughnut chain, for about $11 billion, one of the biggest foreign acquisitions since 2012. This makes Burger King one in a string of corporate deserters in recent years. According to new data provided by the Congressional Research Service, 47 companies have inverted in the last decade, including at least seven this year alone. These companies are able to dodge US taxes by moving their headquarters, but not their operations, to countries with lower Corporate Tax rates. So called “inversions” may save the companies a few bucks, but they could cost the US taxpayer tens of billions of dollars. The Deal: Founded in Miami in 1954, Burger King operates more than 7,000 locations in the United States, but only 300 in Canada. In 1964, the C ...* I've been RAK'D by Thanks so much for the Tim Hortons gift card!

POPE DONATES $1 MILLION TO AID IRAQI REFUGEES By Andrea Gagliarducci Vatican City, Aug 22, 2014 / 01:19 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- Pope Francis has given $1 million as a personal contribution to help Christians and other religious minorities in Iraq who have been forced from their homes, according to his personal envoy to the country. Cardinal Fernando Filoni, prefect of the Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples, visited Erbil as Pope Francis' envoy from Aug. 12-20. Erbil, where more than 70,000 Christians have fled from the Islamic State, is the capital of Iraqi Kurdistan and is within 50 miles of territory held by the Islamic State. Cardinal Filoni met in private with Pope Francis the day after he returned to Rome, and spoke to CNA Aug. 22. Cardinal Filoni said he had carried with him one tenth of the Pope's contribution, and that “75 percent of the money was delivered to Catholics, and the remaining 25 percent to the Yazidi community.”
