The Sloppy Joe: Bald Eagle Signs 100-year Deal Worth 300 Billion to Remain U.S. National Bird

Tack on another 100 years to the veteran’s contract. The bald eagle resigned with America early Wednesday morning to remain the country’s role model.

The feathered friend, a part of the United States for 227 years, makes it 100 more with the most recent news. Reports say that with just three years remaining on his current contract, the bald eagle wanted some long-term commitment.

“It’s really nice to know I won’t have to move nests anytime soon. I’m glad that I’ll be able to keep my family here for quite some time. But now that I have this deal, it’s time to focus on what matters most- winning a championship.”

The 100-year, $300 billion contract is now the largest in world history, surpassing France’s 70-year, $150 billion deal with the Gallic rooster just six years ago.

When asked what plans are with the money, the critter focused on his family.

“My mom and dad have been living in an old, rundown nest for quite sometime. I’ll obviously buy them a new one. As for the rest of it, I’ll probably just save it for a rainy day.”

This extension with the US just adds on to the historic career for the bald eagle who earned the North American Rookie of the Year in 1782, and has been a member of 165 All-World National Bird teams.

For the third time in school history, the Dogs took home the conference title. Playing for all the marbles, UCSTLCT shot 52% from the field to clinch a spot in the NCAA Tournament. They defeated fellow rival Eastern Northwest South College on Tuesday night in tight affair 84-81.

Coach Fred Wilford excitedly spoke about the game, also paying attention to the future of the Bulldogs.

“I can’t begin to explain how proud I am of each and everyone of these guys. We’ll celebrate tonight, but I’m telling you now, this will NOT be the end of the University of Central State Lafayette College Tech A&M Eastern Bulldogs!”

Meanwhile, fans are upset for quite the peculiar reason. NCAA basketball fan Jimbo McCarthy scoffed about the case.

“How am I supposed to fill out that entire school on my bracket challenge? Now because of the team’s selfishness, I’ll have to go out and buy fresh pens. It’s a travesty, really.”

Projections show the Bulldogs to be selected as a 13th seed in the Northwest Eastern Region, with a game start time of 4:30 A.M, next Friday morning.

I Bet You Never Knew This!

Have you ever been just astonished by something and never took a deeper look into it? That happens all the time to more people than you think. I’ll give you the inside scoop on some pretty mind blowing facts that you’ll be excited to tell a friend about.

An 11-Year Old Invented Ice Pops

The time was 1905 when a boy by the name of Frank Epperson had no clue he was about to change the lives of ice cream lovers forever. Not knowing any better, Frank forgot to bring in his cup of soda powder, water, and stirrer. The mix was left outside on a chilly night in winter, and hence the Epsicle was brought to life! The little genius sold his creation around his neighborhood until he changed the name to Popsicle.

Supermarket Apples a Year Old?

Yes, you have heard it here correctly people! Supermarket apples can very well be a year old. Since apples are picked in August and November, they are put through a process that involves covering them in wax and then refrigerated. The earliest they’ll hit your supermarket shelves is about 6 months but most of the time you’re biting into a nicely aged year old apple.

Try Humming While Holding Your Nose

Strange, huh? To hum, air must travel out of your nose to make the sound. Stop trying it because it’s not going to happen. Make sure to comment if you’re the only one in the world that proves this wrong!

Prunes Instead of Cheese?

Rewind the clock some time to the 1840s, and your photographer would have you saying prunes instead of cheese! Try it, saying prunes instead of cheese keeps your mouth taut. This also makes a fish face. So, whoever thought they created it in recent times with their selfie game going strong just know that a Frenchman created it 180 years ago.

Spaghetti at McDonald’s?

If you want to try some pretty exotic food at a McDonald’s just head on down to the Philippines. Not sure that I’d trust the McDonald’s spaghetti but if you’re interested, it comes with a beef tomato sauce, and a nice little slice of “McDo” fried chicken.
