I once had a boss that told us, 'If you get fired, you're firing yourself.'

My response? "Can I give myself a raise, then?" Something tells me that particular boss was about as clueless as the main guy in this clip from Australia.

Notes for non-Aussies:


At 0:55, "superannuation" means retirement funds, 401(k), etc. At 1:22, the "award system" is basically the same as our Fair Labor Standards Act, setting minimum wage, max hours worked per week, etc.

When the COVID-19 pandemic socially distanced the world and pushed off the 2020 Olympics, we knew the games weren't going to be the same. The fact that they're even happening this year is a miracle, but without spectators and the usual hustle and bustle surrounding the events, it definitely feels different.

But it's not just the games themselves that have changed. The coverage of the Olympics has changed as well, including the unexpected addition of un-expert, uncensored commentary from comedian Kevin Hart and rapper Snoop Dogg on NBC's Peacock.

In the topsy-turvy world we're currently living in, it's both a refreshing and hilarious addition to the Olympic lineup.

Just watch this clip of them narrating an equestrian event. (Language warning if you've got kiddos nearby. The first video is bleeped, but the others aren't.)
