A comedian just pulled a hilarious stunt to make a whole bunch of people's lives way better.

I'm really glad someone did this. And by "someone," I mean him and not me.

Kurt Braunohler is a comedian.

Here he is being funny.

Kurt has a kind-of-unusual hobby.

(Not Kurt)

He loves to jet ski.

Like seriously. Loves to jet ski.

Kurt is also a kind, empathetic dude.

Which is why he teamed up with Heifer International, an organization that provides livestock to poor families around the world.

And decided to help in the only way he knew how.

He got on his jet ski. And he rode ...

... over 900 miles.

From Chicago.

To New Orleans.

To try and raise $50,000. To buy goats and chickens for people in need.

Sadly, Kurt fell just a teeny bit short of his fundraising goal.

But he hasn't given up!

You can watch the full series here. And to help him get over the hump, you can support him straight up on the Heifer International website.

Let's get those goats, America.

As face masks have become mandatory in many places to limit the spread of coronavirus, it's also become an increasingly politicized thing. As we know, anything that involves political polarization also involves vast amounts of misinformation and disinformation. Whose idea was the internet again?

No one I know loves wearing a mask. We all wish we didn't have to. But there are an awful lot of people saying they can't wear one, or they refuse to wear one because they've been led to believe that masks are somehow more dangerous than not wearing one. I've seen and read "information" on everything from masks depriving people of oxygen to masks causing CO2 build up to masks creating fungus problems.
