You're Fired! No I Resigned!
7 entries - contest ended 9/16/2019

President Trump fired John Bolton as national security adviser, saying there were several issues, that he strongly disagreed with many of John's suggestions, as did others in the Administration, and asked for his resignation, which he gave. While Bolton swiftly challenged the president's version of events -- saying he offered to resign -- the two have had well-known disagreements on a range of hot-button national security issues, perhaps most significantly on plans for a troop drawdown in Afghanistan.
Now that John Bolton lost his job as national security adviser, show what other jobs and contracts he might (or might not) be offered next, or how he'll spend his free time. Please Note: Limit 3 Entries Per Player. Many thanks to mrassad for the themepost.

Neanderthals Among Us
13 entries - contest ended 9/13/2019

"The Neanderthals are not totally extinct, in some of us they live on - a little bit", says a landmark scientific study. It was previously thought that the Neanderthals were a separate line, and that all modern humans descended from a small population of Africans. However the current study proved that at least some of the modern humans still share parts of their DNA (genome) with the Neanderthals, which effectively means that that part of the ancient humans mated with the Neanderthals.
Show what celebrities or politicians may have Neanderthal genome by photoshopping them as Neanderthals. Don't forget to include celebrity names in your entry titles and please Note: Limit 3 Entries Per Player. Many thanks to LunaC, for the Themepost .

Celebrity Grandparents
12 entries - contest ended 9/10/2019

This Sunday is National Grandparents Day, and is rooted in the work of two committed pioneers: Jacob Reingold and Marian McQuade. They wanted a special day of recognition for the role of millions of older Americans who are grandparents, and who have wisdom, perspectives and key civic values to share with young people. Through their efforts, in 1978 the United States Congress passed legislation proclaiming the first Sunday after Labor Day as National Grandparents Day, signed by President Jimmy Carter.
In celebration of National Grandparents day at Freaking News, turn any celebrities into grandpas and grandmas by aging them. Please Note: Limit 3 Entries Per Player. Many thanks to lucianomorelli for the Themepost .

Car Shoes
4 entries - contest started 9/15/2019 8:00:00 AM

There's something fascinating about a car shoe that catches the eye and brings on the smiles. When it comes to cars shaped like shoes, many of these vehicles are made for a promotional reason, such as the McDonald clown boot mobile, Oscar Mayer's Wienermobile or the several hand made Reebok cars shaped exactly like their running shoe models. There are a few made just for laughs though, from Brown Oxford's to a Disco Roller Boot on wheels and even a High Heel Car.
For this contest, take any shoe and turn it into a car/vehicle that looks realistic. Here's a great example by Mandrak. Please Note: Limit 3 Entries Per Player. Many thanks to williambanzai7 for the themepost.
