The story of the embezzling bishop inspired me to write this song (with apologies to John Denver):

Almost heaven, West Virginia.
Your donations.....covered my vacations.
My home is remodeled.....and I have liquor too
And ev'ry bit of it.....was paid by all of you.
Off'ring plate, pass it down.
Please put in.....a ten or twenty.
All you folks of.....West Virginia.....
Thanks a lot. This is plenty.

In Disney's 2016 animated movie Zootopia, Shakira sang a song called Try Everything. Who knew the "everything" would include tax fraud?

Pop singer Shakira faces tax fraud accusation in Spanish court - Reuters
This sounds like one of those musicals, where she enters the courtroom shaking her stuff, and then one at a time, the observers, jury, lawyers, judge, bailiff, and court stenographer all join in. They do a big synchronized dance, and then the charges get dropped.

On May 23 – Go look! – I posted the story of Tony Robbins being accused of sexual misconduct. I wrote, "Now I know why Robbins is called a self-help guru: He's been helping himself to all the women he wanted." Keith Raniere has just been found guilty of sex trafficking. Now I know why Raniere is called a self-help guru: He's been helping himself to all the women he wanted.

Hey, if it's a funny line the first time, it's equally funny the second time.

Jay McGraw, son of Dr. Phil, is an author and self-help guru and he's married to a former Playboy model. Will he become the third self-help guru to be accused of sexual misconduct with women?

I know it won't be Richard Simmons.

This former Mets/Phillies centerfielder, as many athletes do, engaged in some trash talking – but in his case, it was literal.

Ex-MLB star Lenny Dykstra spent 9 hours dumpster diving for $80,000 dentures
"I took my teeth out and put them in a napkin, folded it up and forgot them there," said the controversial All Star.

That's the least of his problems, as any Stern fan knows.
