OK, let’s all take a deep breath. It’s been a pretty crazy hectic news week, which didn’t slow down on Thursday when Roger Ailes and Chris Cornell both died (I guarantee those two have never been in the same sentence before), we had two horrible car accidents here in NYC (including a drunk driver plowing over more than 20 people and killing one on a crowded Times Square sidewalk) and more nonsense coming from the White House.
So we need some smiles, and some laughs, right? Good thing I’m here. I begin Good News Friday with maybe the greatest invention in sandwich-making since sliced bread (OK maybe the person who invented the paper plate has an argument).
Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you the greatest and only knife you’ll ever need for making a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. It’s called the PB-JIFE knife, and it eliminates the problem of getting peanut butter on your hands while making the sandwich.
It’s got curved edges, a huge extra-long blade… I’m telling you, if you don’t get the man in your life this knife for Father’s Day, you just don’t love them. (I would love one of these, for anyone looking to get me a Dad’s day gift.)
It was invented by a video-game designer and costs just $12.99. You can buy it here, and if watching this demo doesn’t make you hungry, I don’t know what will.
**Next up, Tim Tebow gets a lot of publicity, some of it negative for his spectacular failure as an NFL player and how he’s always so outspoken about his Christian beliefs, but I’ve always tried to point out how much of a good heart he has, and how much good he does in the world.
Every year he holds a “Night to Shine Prom” for special-needs kids, and Tebow went on Jimmy Fallon the other night and talked about a superfan of his named Judy, who wanted him to go to her prom with him but he was unable to.
Judy and her mom were invited to “The Tonight Show” and Tim asked Judy to dance. Her face, her reaction… just so magical.
Good on you, as usual, Tebow.
**And finally today, for you animal lovers out there, check out this incredible woman named Leanne Lauricella, who houses disabled goats in her home and takes care of them, saving their lives. All of them.
What an amazing woman. I say it all the time: So much more good than bad in the world. So much more.
