Britain’s decision to leave the European Union is having a devastating ripple effect on the world economy. Stocks are dropping. Exchange rates are in chaos. It’s too soon to tell if the EU and possibly the United Kingdom itself will unravel.

And the reasons behind Brexit are a complicated, volatile cocktail of socio-economics, immigration, security, politics and fear that I can’t begin to make sense of. Which is why I do what I always do at times like this.

Check with Lindsay Lohan.

Fortunately for those of us seeking reason amidst the chaos, LiLo was live-tweeting the entire situation as Brexit unfolded. From bed. America’s former sweetheart-turned-softcore porn star/cosmetic surgery addict managed to make sense of it all as only she could. In 22 Tweets that have since been deleted, Lindsay gave us a master class in international economics. Fortunately they were all preserved so we can all be smarter about this complex and nuanced dynamic:

  • #Remain small shops should pay more attention
  • #REMAIN Sorry, but #KETTERING where are you&why is this woman @BBCNews speaking on people rather than TELLING us what happens if UK LEAVES?
  • i was referring to #sarahpalin #REMAIN #LoveIsLove
  • i love the #shetlands @BBCNews thank goodness we have pure hearted people our side #besmart #ShetlandsVSSunderland #BringItOn
  • #bury what’s wrong with you manchester??????
  • i lived in manchester!! be conscious! #fauxpaux @MaxGeorge @DannyCipriani87 #bury has left manchester WHY?
  • #remain #REMAIN @standardnews #remain #REMAIN @Telegraph unlike OBAMA’s recent setback @BBCWorld i have not been hacked
  • #remain #IAMIRISH #iloveuk #iloveEu #iloveusa #onelove #freetrade don’t let me down in the UK as a loving member of your beautiful country during #hermajestythequeen ‘s birthday time
  • good luck with the pound.. will take you about 15 years to get it back up #REMAIN instead
  • #OXFORD #EXETER #lambeth Workplace fatalities in the UK have reduced by half sinceEuropean safety directives were introduced in 1996.
  • for the love of #themajestyherqueen can we please #REMAIN and READ BEFORE WE SPEAK?
  • for the love of #hermajestythequeen ..the #leave #youcantsitwithus FELLOWS @SMP WE SHOULD ALL BE SITTING TOGETHER #LOVENOTHATE we can be 1
  • dropping by the second… one dollar and forty nine cents.. dropping as we breathe..#REMAIN

I especially appreciate Lindsay confirming right in the middle of this that she had not been hacked, just in case any of us read these 140 character insane ramblings and thought maybe some diabolical tech genius was putting words in her mouth.

“Mean Girls” could not seem further away. God have mercy on your soul.

WisconsinA Greenfield couple called police to tell them they are being held hostage by their cat. …

“This is gonna sound like a strange question but we have a cat and it’s going crazy and it attacked my husband and we’re kind of hostage in our house and we’re just wondering who we should call to do something, get rid of the cat or help us,” said 911 caller.

The cat was captured and turned over to MADACC. No one was seriously hurt.

Laugh at this couple if you must, but they’ll get no such ridicule from me. You might question how a critter so small could terrorize two grown adult humans, but I understand that there is no limit to the evil that a cat is capable of. Those little buggers are monsters, every last one of them. Demonic entities in the body of a plush toy, outfitted with razor sharp weapons fore and aft. And they will stop at nothing if they’re hellbent on destroying you.

We’ve seen it time and time again. A dog will protect its master through anything. Stay with you when you’re injured. Fight off attacks from other animals. Even stay by your side for days after you die. If you croak with a cat around, you’ve got 24 hours at most before you are Tender Vittles.

So I can definitely sympathize with this couple who came under attack, looked into the soulless, infinite evil possessing those feline eyes and decided it was better to head to the panic room and call in the professionals to vanquish the furry little Satan. And if these two decide to replace the cat, they deserve the horrible, screaming death that awaits them.

Boston Celtics select Jaylen Brown with No. 3 overall pick in the 2016 NBA Draft.

This is such a great concept that if I had the money, I would legitimately get to work on a start up. Get Offended could be the next Apple, Google or medicinal marijuana dispensary for 2016. An absolute can’t miss. “See an Internet video that you don’t think is funny? What are you gonna do? Stop watching and get on with your day? Now you can take any humorous situation and instantly ruin it with Get Offended.” Genius.

On the other hand, I probably shouldn’t be promoting the idea, since I earn my living on sports talk radio, which is basically the 20th century version of this. I had a guy call up this week screaming at me to shut up and said I physically made him shake with rage because I said I want more in return for the Celtics third overall pick than Gordon Haywood (five years in the NBA, zero All Star appearances). That special kind of person-to-person crazy keeps the lights on at WEEI and I probably shouldn’t want to replace it with any kind of technology. So in the meantime, keep the lunacy and the misplaced outrage to the phones and the comments section. I’ve got bills to pay.
