Have you ever just had a really dumb joke you absolutely have to tell someone?

You send out the text to your friends, hoping to get a chuckle from someone but all you get is silence?

Yeah, that happens to celebrities too.


Chris Martin and Johnny Buckland were on The Ellen DeGeneres Show last week, talking about their new album.

Martin however, went off on a tangent about an idea he had for A Quiet Place.

As Martin explained, after seeing the movie A Quiet Place, he had a joke. He sent a video of himself pretending to play the piano and mouthing words to a song to Emily Blunt and her husband, John Krasinski, who directed the film.

"So, I sent Emily Blunt and her husband this idea for the musical of 'A Quiet Place' and it was just me like that,"

It was the perfect idea for A Quiet Place musical.

The only problem is Martin never heard anything back from Krasinski or Blunt.

As Martin explained:

"I thought, 'Oh no, they must have thought I was taking the Mickey.' I wasn't. I loved the film!"

DeGeneres helpfully responded:

"Well, you'll hear back from them now!"

And she ensured it. The official Twitter account for the show tweeted out the clip and tagged Krasinski in the tweet.

Difficult to ignore that.

Krasinski certainly couldn't ignore being called out like that. He manned up and responded to the video.

He also decided to throw his wife under the bus.


It's not very fair, considering Blunt doesn't use social media and can't so readily defend herself. Low blow, Jim.

On the other hand, people are very supportive of Martin referring to the Hollywood couple as "Emily Blunt and her husband."

We can cut Krasinski a little slack. He's been busy producing A Quiet Place 2, due for release in March of this year.

The film once again stars Emily Blunt as Evelyn Abbott as she and her family face off against deadly creatures who violently attack any sound.

The monsters aren't entirely unlike Twitter users who see a famous actor trying to blame Emily Blunt because he happened to leave Chris Martin on read.

Euthanasia and physician-assisted suicide refer to, as defined by Medical News Today, as the "deliberate action taken with the intention of ending a life, in order to relieve persistent suffering." It's a controversial topic. As of 2021, active human euthanasia is legal in the Netherlands, Belgium, Colombia, Luxembourg, Canada, and Spain. Assisted suicide is legal in Switzerland, Germany, the Australian states of Victoria Northern Territory, and Western Australia.

But this issue has many passionate supporters who often know what it's like to care for someone who would have benefited from the practice. They told their stories after Redditor Random2328 asked the online community,

"What are your thoughts on medically assisted death?"

Privilege is discussed quite a bit these days, and for good reason. So many people are able to live life longer, more peacefully, and freely than others thanks to factors they had no control over.

The law is a fickle mistress, and it varies from state to state and county to county sometimes. And then there is the blatant hypocrisy of it all.

There are some things that feel like they should be allowed to pass but you get scolded for, like jaywalking, and then there are things like actual robbery in broad daylight, like telemarketers and nothing happens to them.

Make it make sense. It's like taxes, the wealthy know loopholes and the poor go to jail. Shameful.

Redditor u/Xanduh wanted everyone to chat about legal life fails by asking:

What do you wish was illegal?

While the world is a dark and scary place, there would not be a world, or a human race, without inherent kindness.

Kindness always gives you a little thump to your heart that nothing else can truly provide. A rush of knowing you've made someone's day better. And you may change the trajectory of that person's life because of it.
