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.

There are few things more satisfying than a crisp $20 bill. Well, maybe a crisp $100 bill.

But twenty big ones can get you pretty far nonetheless.

Whether it's tucked firmly in a birthday card, passing from hand to hand after a knee-jerk sports bet, or going toward a useful tool, the old twenty dollar bill has been used for countless purposes.

I realize that school safety has been severely compromised and has been under dire scrutiny over the past decade and of course, it should be. And when I was a student, my safety was one of my greatest priorities but, some implemented rules under the guise of "safety" were and are... just plain ludicrous. Like who thinks up some of these ideas?

Redditor u/Animeking1108 wanted to discuss how the education system has ideas that sometimes are just more a pain in the butt than a daily enhancement... What was the dumbest rule your school enforced?

One of the golden rules of life? Doctors are merely human. They don't know everything and they make mistakes. That is why you always want to get another opinion. Things are constantly missed. That doesn't mean docs don't know what they're doing, they just aren't infallible. So make sure to ask questions, lots of them.

Redditor u/Gorgon_the_Dragon wanted to hear from doctors about why it is imperative we always get second and maybe third opinions by asking... Doctors of Reddit, what was the worse thing you've seen for a patient that another Doctor overlooked?

When we think about learning history, our first thought is usually sitting in our high school history class (or AP World History class if you're a nerd like me) being bored out of our minds. Unless again, you're a huge freaking nerd like me. But I think we all have the memory of the moment where we realized learning about history was kinda cool. And they usually start from one weird fact.

Here are a few examples of turning points in learning about history, straight from the keyboards of the people at AskReddit.

U/Tynoa2 asked: What's your favourite historical fact?
