@brodielancaster, supporting singer Kacey Musgraves after she refused to do a “shoey” — which involves taking a shot out of a fan’s shoe — at her Sydney concert Sunday. As the crowd chanted “shoey,” Musgraves refused, even telling an eager fan who offered their cowboy boot, “You could have athlete’s foot or something.”

This is an excellent example of the increased drive Joel Embiid is going to have for next season.

@ByTimReynolds, tweeting about the emotional response of the Philadelphia 76ers center to losing Game 7 of the conference semifinals against the Toronto Raptors on Sunday. The 76ers lost after Embiid unsuccessfully tried to block forward Kawhi Leonard’s buzzer-beater. The shot broke a 90-90 tie.

And this is an excellent example of why you should take that anatomy class.

@Animal_Mothah, in a jab at the restaurant chain’s Mother’s Day tweet: a sonogram image of a uterus containing a stack of pancakes, with the text, “If you have pancakes in your tum tum, does that make you a pancake mum mum?” The bizarre tweet was met with confusion and distaste by many — not least because the pancakes a person eats end up in the stomach, not the uterus.
