AUDIO: Be Prepared, Simba is Back!

November 2, 2017

It's the circle of movie life, they remake it all. The cast of the upcoming reboot of the Disney classic The Lion King was announced yesterday. James Earl Jones is back as the dad-iest dad of all time, Mufasa. Donald Glover will voice Simba, Beyonce will be the most perfect Nala, Chiwetel Ejiofor will play Scar, and in some truly brilliant casting, John Oliver joins the cast as Zazu, the little hornbill with some serious advice for young Simba. We just can't wait for this king.

This year, you may be giving thanks for The Lion King reboot, or you know, the traditional things like family, friends and health. If the idea of actually preparing the Thanksgiving feast seems overwhelming, Neiman Marcus has you covered. Neiman's will ship yoy a full turkey dinner, complete with stuffing, potatoes and super-fancy sides, for a little over $500 (when you factor in shipping). Only minor prep is required. Not a bad deal!

Here's some info that's good to have BEFORE you chow down on Thanksgiving. We're giving you time to prepare. Turns out, toilet paper is actually bad for your butt! Paper can leave tiny scratches and cuts on your butt, thus leaving your backside open to germs and possible infection. Doctors are recommending we start to use bidets, as the Europeans do. Plus, that nice stream of water isn't only cleansing, but a little fun!

You might spend a bit of extra time in the bathroom duting work hours, you know, stall-ing (ha!), but some companies feel smokers are getting extra time away from their desks. Businesses in Japan have begun to offer non-smokers extra vacation time, to even out the break time smokers get daily. So far, 25% of employees at these companies have used their new time off. 

Here in the U.S. a new survey shows that nearly half of all women have been harassed at work. A staggering statistic that indicates if it hasn't happened to you, it has probably happened to someone you know, and care about.
