@BenSullins, joking about former NASA engineer Mark Rober, who pranked package thieves with a glitter bomb after a package was stolen from his front porch.

@nicsigni, reacting to writer and former adult actress Amanda Drago’s “tribute” to her late sugar daddy. In an Instagram post, Drago marked the one-year anniversary of the man’s death by recounting how they had a “toxic relationship,” which at one point led to him removing her from his will. She also recalled that he’d bought her her first racehorse ... then, she kindly asked him to stop haunting her.
