Runaway Pig Squeals The Spotlight From Journalist On Live TV

There was pig news coming out of Greek morning TV on Tuesday.

A large speckled sow took a liking to ANT1 journalist Lazos Mantikos, pestering him throughout a live broadcast as he attempted to report on the devastation to the beach town of Kineta, which was lashed by torrential rains on Monday.

The key word there is attempted. The lovestruck pig persistently chased a grunting and yelping Mantikos as he ran in circles trying to deliver his report.

As the viewers of “Good Morning Greece” watched, anchor Giorgos Papadakis announced that they were going to Mantikos for an update on the serious situation on the ground.

“Good morning, we have an issue,” a breathless Mantikos said as they cut to his shot. “Giorgos, can you hear me? We have a pig here that has been chasing us since the morning…. Sorry guys, I can’t stand because it’s biting me.”

The presenters in the studio, unable to contain their laughter (Papadakis at one point was doubled over), told Mantikos they’d give him some time to get his affairs in order. “Try to repair your relationship. I’ll leave you to repair,” Papadakis said, moments before the feisty sow chased the reporter out of camera range. 

Mantikos clearly wasn’t too disgruntled by his ordeal. He had a laugh, sharing a number of reports about his hog-wild story on Twitter.

James Corden and Kacey Musgraves’ 14-song Christmas medley is super impressive

If you’re finding it difficult to get into the festive spirit, James Corden has just the ticket.

“Everybody loves Christmas songs, no one more than I, so we thought it might be fun to imagine a classic holiday rom-com using just Christmas music,” the Late Late Show host explains in the clip above. “We’ve got 14 songs, nine sets, one take and zero pressure — this is Kacey Musgraves in ‘Soundtrack to a Christmas Love Story.'”

The good news is they don’t mess up once, and they even manage to squeeze a Love Actually reference in there for good measure.

The “snowflakes” of the United Kingdom have something to say: get out and vote. 

High-profile influencers have teamed up to create a video urging young people to exercise their democratic right in the General Election on Dec. 12. 

The video urges young voters to #CancelTheHaters and make sure they head to polling stations to have a say in the election. 

“Fix the planet you destroyed, eradicate your misogyny with our equality, eliminate your homophobia with our openness,” influencers declare in the video. “We will strike, march, protest, rebel, vote for a better world and make sure our voice is louder than yours, we’re coming after your hate.”

The video — produced by ad and music agency Truant London — features former Love Islander Dr Alex George, grime artist Saskilla, grime MC and professional footballer Kamakaze, and many more.  

Stephen Colbert roasts the Democratic candidates with Baby Yoda burns

The Democratic presidential candidates might be trying their best, but they’ve got some serious competition.

And we’re not talking about Donald Trump.

“There’s one candidate who’s exploding on social media: Baby Yoda,” says Stephen Colbert in the clip above, before explaining that The Mandalorian character is getting nearly double the social media interactions of any 2020 Democratic candidate. “Sad sign of our misplaced priorities, this is.”

Colbert went on to explain why this was particularly bad news for Michael Bloomberg, with his late bid clearly being overshadowed by everyone’s new favorite Star Wars character.

“Sorry, Mike,” says Colbert. “I guess voters were interested in a different tiny, wrinkled money-maker.”

Justin’s costly secret ‘love contract’

As speculation swirls over how close Justin Timberlake is to actress Alisha Wainwright, his co-star in the upcoming film Palmer, fans are obsessing over his pre-nuptial agreement with wife Jessica Biel that would cost the boy-band singer half a million dollars if he strays.

After Timberlake and Biel tied the knot in 2012, the New York Daily News reported that they signed a contract specifying how they would divide their property if they ever divorced and holding Timberlake financially liable if he were unfaithful. Timberlake’s net worth topped $US200 million ($A292 million) as of 2019.

The infidelity provision is a common feature of so-called lifestyle clauses, also known as “love contracts”, in prenuptial agreements that cover everything from frequency of sex to body weight requirements.

“Reports of the Timberlake-Biel prenup infidelity clause in 2012 began a trend in so-called ‘lifestyle’ clauses within prenups, postnups and cohabitation agreements,” asset-protection lawyer Ann-Margaret Carrozza told FOX. “These clauses can deal with items of concern such as substance abuse, infidelity, weight gain, spending” and more, she said.

In Timberlake’s case, the 38-year-old actor and musician apologised on Instagram for what he called a “strong lapse in judgment” after photos and video surfaced in November of him and Wainwright at a bar in New Orleans.

The images showed the two holding hands and, at one point, Wainwright’s hand on Timberlake’s leg. They play lovers in Palmer, a drama that follows a college football player after his release from prison.

Representatives for Biel and Timberlake didn’t immediately respond to requests for comment.

Reports haven’t specified what would be considered infidelity under Timberlake’s contract with Biel, and Carrozza told FOX the couple’s current residence in Tennessee would also affect the agreement’s terms.

Tennessee is a so-called equitable distribution state, where judges are generally freer to rewrite the terms of an agreement to achieve fairness, said Carrozza, the author of the book Love and Money: Protecting Yourself from Angry Exes, Wacky Relatives, Con Artists, and Inner Demons, published in 2017.

Infidelity or “no cheating” clauses are among the most common of the lifestyle provisions, Carrozza told the Daily News in 2013. This isn’t the first time such stipulations have made headlines.

When speculation surfaced that celebrity golfer Tiger Woods wanted to reunite with ex-wife Elin Nordegren in 2013, she reportedly demanded an infidelity clause with a $US350 million ($A512 million) penalty, according to HuffPost.

Brad Pitt Reveals Why He Went 20 Years Without Crying

It’s Brad Pitt’s party and he’ll repress his emotions if he wants to. 

The actor revealed he kept the tears turned off for 20 years and is “quite famously a not-crier” in a conversation with his “Legends of the Fall” co-star Anthony Hopkins for Interview magazine.

“I hadn’t cried in, like, 20 years, and now I find myself, at this latter stage, much more moved — moved by my kids, moved by friends, moved by the news,” Pitt explained. “Just moved. I think it’s a good sign. I don’t know where it’s going, but I think it’s a good sign.”

The “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” star, of course, shares six children ― Maddox, 18; Pax, 16; Zahara, 14; Shiloh, 13; and twins Knox and Vivienne, 11 ― with his ex-wife Angelina Jolie. The couple split in 2016 after two years of marriage. 

These days, Pitt said he isn’t afraid of a good old-fashioned sobbing session ― be it at his sculpting studio or when he’s decidedly not dating Alia Shawkat ― now that he’s “able to witness the beauty and the wonder that we’re surrounded by in every minute detail.”

“We miss that when we’re young,” he added.

At this stage in his life, Pitt says he’s “still wrestling” with blame, apparently referring to his struggle with substance abuse amid his breakup with Jolie. 

Pitt previously revealed he stopped drinking altogether and found solace in Alcoholics Anonymous group meetings during his highly publicized divorce. 

“I’m realizing, as a real act of forgiveness for myself for all the choices that I’ve made that I’m not proud of, that I value those missteps, because they led to some wisdom, which led to something else,” Pitt explained. 

Instead of dwelling on his mistakes, the actor said he’s committed to trying to better himself through acceptance of his flaws. 

“We’re living in a time where we’re extremely judgmental and quick to treat people as disposable,” he said. “We’ve always placed great importance on the mistake. But the next move, what you do after the mistake, is what really defines a person.”

Back in 2017, Pitt described his split with Jolie as a “huge generator for change” in his life that forced him to take stock of his bad habits. 

“I’m really, really happy to be done with all of that,” he said, referring to his abuse of drugs and alcohol. “I stopped everything except boozing when I started my family. But even this last year, you know — things I wasn’t dealing with. I was boozing too much. It’s just become a problem. And I’m really happy it’s been half a year now, which is bittersweet, but I’ve got my feelings in my fingertips again.”

Cows Swept Off Coast During Hurricane Dorian Survive ‘Gilligan’s Island’-Style

Three cows who were swept off the coast during Hurricane Dorian managed to miraculously survive in a manner perfect for a bovine-centered reboot of “Gilligan’s Island.”

The cows in question were part of a wild herd of 20 cows that roamed private land on Cedar Island, North Carolina, according to The Charlotte Observer.

When Dorian hit the area on Sept. 6, a lot of the wildlife swept off the island, including 28 wild horses.

The trio of cows were among those presumed dead — until recently, when they were all discovered living in the Cape Lookout National Seashore Park on the Outer Banks.

“It’s a tremendous story of how they made it,” park spokesman B.G. Horvat told The New York Times. “If the cows could talk, imagine the story they can tell you of enduring that rush of water.”

He added: “That must be incredible.”

It seems the castaway cows managed to swim five miles to a barrier island, where they then survived by grazing off the land, according to the BBC.

Park staff noticed the first cow about a month after the storm. The others revealed themselves with the last two weeks. 

Now the National Park Service is determining the best way to return the cows to their home, but the frontrunner seems to be sedating them and taking them back to Cedar Island on a boat, according to The Washington Post.
