—Just when you thought almost everything was as mundane as you could have imagined, the folks at Axios jumped in with a theory that the Trump-Kim summit is planned to take place at Stonehenge!
After WTVJ reporter Michael Spears was spotted in London visiting the nearly 3000-year-old monument, he tracked down another eyewitness: Clifford Pritchard of the British Geological Survey, who said he had a surprising photo of the scene taken not too long ago.
Axios went on to inform their readers that, according to the DGSE site, “the visitor center at Stonehenge, is currently undergoing a major refurbishment, and closed to the public for several months beginning in late September for this work.”
But wouldn’t Stonehenge be an ideal place for Kim and Trump to discuss a historic deal? Especially since Kim’s hand could be freshly cast at the of the stony arena’s ancient stone hewn stands?
As for Spears, some Internet users lambasted him for the nanny moment and wondered if the stonehenge mistake was a fake news. (Axios, of course, says it’s a “fair bet.”)

In other news: what happens when you turn an English forest into a TV show?
“Selling Sunset” (pictured) – A traditional British car show – or perhaps more accurately an Old English version – returns to New Zealand’s Porirua Regional Television Station on Saturday evening.
NZTV describes the show as: “An hour long interactive car park-side programme that has developed a huge following in previous years. The format sees car enthusiasts in the show compete for both glory and cash prizes at a variety of events; such as car build contests, speed trials, green hot dog races and their own version of ‘Antiques Roadshow’. The programme sees people who own an antique car appearing in these events, alongside car enthusiasts from across the country. The best part is that most of the drama and tension is played out between the two crowds.”
