Woman shares husband’s Elf on the Shelf kitchen-wrapping prank: ‘2 hours later and a divorce on the cards’

This might be the most labor-intensive way to ensure you get coal from Santa — or your wife.

Nichola Mullen-King, 36, shared photos of a very involved plan that her husband, Carl, hatched as an Elf on the Shelf prank. According to Nichola, Carl, 24, approached her about wrapping the entire kitchen in gift wrap to trick their 6-year-old son Max into thinking the mischievous elf did it.

Nichola agreed to the stunt. However, according to her Monday post on Facebook, she did not realize what an undertaking it would be.

“My a–h— of a husband came up with the bright idea for us to wrap part of the kitchen for Ef on the Shelf… 2 hours later and a divorce on the cards, it’s done including the fruit, eggs, utensils and chopping board,” she wrote.

The U.K. couple’s prank quickly went viral on social media with thousands liking and commenting on the crazy stunt. Several tagged others in comments, suggesting they would like to pull off their own kitchen-wrapping makeover.

“Possible idea?” one person wrote, tagging another in the comment.

“I want someone to be this extra with,” another said.

“This is next level for elf on the shelf,” someone else commented.

The 2 hours-worth of work — including the alleged threats of divorce — were apparently all worth it, though, seeing as Nichola shared with Metro that Max was “absolutely flabbergasted” by the finished display when he came downstairs the next morning.

Originally, the boy did not want the Christmas elf to make an appearance this year, as he thought “the elf gets him in trouble with Santa,” Nichola said.

“But he had a last-minute change of heart on Saturday, which prompted Carl to think outside of the box on the spot,” she continued. “I assumed Carl, who is a customer service advisor, was joking when he said let’s wrap the whole kitchen. But after reading Max a book and putting him to bed, he had started and asked me for a hand.”

Nichola said she “couldn’t stop laughing” during the wrapping prank, but she didn’t say if she was still in high spirits during the 40 minutes it took to unwrap everything in the kitchen – including the eggs.

Ancient Catholic ‘covert church’ discovered in Dublin, buried under old schoolhouse

A secret “covert” Catholic church built more than 300 years ago has been discovered in Dublin, Ireland.

According to the Irish Times, the church was discovered by a group of archaeologists led by Franc Myles before construction on a new building began.

“There was probably a building used as a chapel from the foundation of St Andrew’s parish in 1709 and it is depicted on John Rocque’s map [of Dublin] of 1756,” states the archaeological report prepared for the developers of the new building.

DRACULA’S CANNONBALLS FROM 15TH-CENTURY BATTLE FOUND IN BULGARIA

The Irish Times added that the church likely served thousands of worshipers for more than a century.

“The first ruins to be uncovered were the thick stone walls of a national school which was still standing in the shadow of the office block as late as the mid-1980s,” the Times wrote in its report. “But what lay underneath the old school house proved to be of more interest to archaeologists—the ruins of a considerably older structure which once served as a covert church for Catholics living in the south inner city.”

During “penal times,” practicing Catholicism was banned, the Times added. During King Henry VIII’s reign, Catholics in Ireland were persecuted, according to the Catholic Encyclopedia.

It is expected that the dig will last up until Christmas, the Times said.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan must be ‘more vocal’ on knife crime, victim’s cousin says in dramatic TV confrontation

A British weatherman whose cousin was stabbed to death in London earlier this year took center stage Wednesday when he told Mayor Sadiq Khan in national TV that he must be “more vocal on the issue of knife crime.”

The dramatic moment took place during ITV’s Good Morning Britain program, where the mayor clashed with hosts Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid about his policing priorities and the London Bridge terrorist. Topics ranged from why terror attacker Usman Khan was released early from prison to why London has been unable to adequately combat the stabbing scourge that’s plagued the city for years.

At one point weatherman Alex Beresford joined the conversation and described the pain he’s felt since the March murder of his 29-year-old cousin, Nathaniel Armstrong. He criticized Khan, who listened intently, for not being outspoken enough about the problem.

“I feel like you could be more vocal on the issue of knife crime,” Beresford said. “It’s not just about saying all the right things, it’s about doing the right things as well.”

He added: “We have got young kids walking around with knives, carrying them out of fear. That’s not an excuse to carry a knife but it is a reason for it. And it is because our communities are completely infested with several different things — there are so many disadvantages going on that need to be addressed.”

When asked by another host about Nathaniel’s death, Beresford said “words can’t describe what it’s like to lose one of your cousins to knife crime.”

“And unfortunately Nathaniel isn’t the only person that I know that has lost his life to knife crime,” he said. “It cuts you so deep inside, literally.”

Later in the segment, Khan told Beresford, “I’m as frustrated as you, man” and said the issue is “one thing that keeps me up at night,” according to The Sun.

Armstrong was attacked in West London on March 16. The man accused of stabbing him during an argument was set to face trial in November, but had his murder charges tossed in June after prosecutors said there wasn’t a realistic chance of a conviction, according to the BBC.

As of Wednesday, the number of knife crime deaths in London this year is at 127, slightly below last year’s total of 139, The Sun reported.

Washington Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo is back to work after celebrating the team’s World Series victory and getting married in Jamaica shortly thereafter.

Terry Crews catches backlash for statement on Gabrielle Union leaving ‘AGT’

“America’s Got Talent” host Terry Crews is catching heat from supporters of Gabrielle Union who believe he hung her out to dry.

NBC has been accused of ousting Union as a judge, Variety reported, after she expressed concern over a “toxic culture” on the set of the popular competition series. Fellow celebs, including Ellen Pompeo and Debra Messing, have spoken up on Union’s behalf, resulting in the actress sending a public thank-you message to her supporters.

Crews, 51, took to Twitter to respond to Union’s appreciative post, simply writing “You’re the best, Gabrielle! You will be missed!”

‘AMERICA’S GOT TALENT’ PRODUCERS SAY THEY’RE ‘WORKING WITH’ GABRIELLE UNION

The short statement didn’t sit well with some fans of the 47-year-old actress, who said Crews should have come to her defense more vehemently. Fans also noted that Union was one of very few public supporters of Crews when he accused Hollywood agent Adam Venit of groping him at a party in 2017.

“She was there for you but this is the best you could do. Not surprised,” wrote one follower, while another responded, “Oh Terry. This is all you’ve got? That’s a shame.”

“This is disappointing Terry,” added another fan of Union’s. “She stood up for you when you needed it and this is how you repay her?”

In its statement Sunday, SAG-AFTRA confirmed the union’s involvement in an investigation of the allegations against NBC.

According to Variety, Union “urged” producers to report a Korean joke allegedly made by guest star Jay Leno to human resources, but several insiders told the publication the incident didn’t make its way to HR. The line was cut from the episode.

Bebe Rexha helping to rebuild Albania following devastating 6.4-magnitude earthquake

Bebe Rexha returned from a recent trip to Albania where she’s spearheading an effort to help the country rebuild after a devastating earthquake last month killed 51 people and destroyed thousands of buildings.

Rexha visited Bubq village, 18 miles west of the capital Tirana, to hand over aid. The singer, who is of Albanian origin, started a GoFundMe page that’s raised more than $97,000 to help with the reconstruction efforts.

She continued: “We have designated two houses damaged by the earthquake to rebuild, as a start. Please continue to spread awareness about this tragedy and the help that Albania needs. I love my country ❤️ Te Dua shqiperi.”

The final line of her post loosely translates to “I love you Albania.”

Deckhand in Australia admits to having drunken sex with luxury yacht captain before crash

A deckhand on a luxury yacht in Australia pleaded guilty to negligence for having drunken sex with the captain when the unhelmed charter boat crashed, causing $140,000 worth of damage.

Cheya Handley, 26, admitted in court Monday to guzzling booze and hooking up on the bow of the 80-foot Crystal Blue with the skipper, as the pair returned the vessel from Brisbane to the Gold Coast on March 3, 2018, ABC reported.

“Yeah, I did the wrong thing, drinking on the job. I should have known better, I screwed up big-time,” Handley said in a recorded interview with a maritime safety inspector played in court.

North Carolina woman dies after her cigarette ignites oxygen tank, causing explosion

A North Carolina woman died Tuesday after her oxygen tank exploded — caused by an ignition from the cigarette she was smoking, investigators said.

Belinda Coble, 61, was being administered oxygen at her home in Zebulon, around 25 miles east of Raleigh, while she was smoking. The cigarette ignited the tank, sparking a small explosion and fire, according to officials.

Coble’s husband was asleep in a separate room at the time of the incident, WNCN reported, citing the Nash County Sheriff’s Office. The sounds of the explosion and the smoke alarm reportedly woke him up and he quickly extinguished the small fire.

Experts advise to keep a 10-foot radius between the oxygen tank and people who are smoking, “or from campfires or other open flames.”

Florida candidate in hot water with GOP leadership after suggesting Ilhan Omar should be hanged

Florida GOP congressional candidate George Buck is in trouble with GOP leadership after suggesting Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar should “hang.”

Rep. Steve Scalise, R-La., said Buck should immediately apologize for the fundraising email targeting Omar, a Somali-born Democrat and one of the first Muslim women elected to Congress.

“There’s no place for inciting violence in politics,” the House Republican Whip said in a statement Wednesday. “Instead of doubling down on these disgraceful comments, the candidate ought to apologize unequivocally and denounce these unacceptable statements.”

Florida GOP congressional candidate George Buck is in trouble with GOP leadership after suggesting Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar should “hang.”

Buck is one of six Republicans running for Congress in St. Petersburg trying to unseat Democrat Rep. Charlie Crist.

Fox News has confirmed GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy has removed Buck from the Young Guns program, a special recruitment program for promising Republican candidates. A source familiar with the matter says National Republican Congressional Committee Chairman Rep. Tom Emmer agrees with the decision.

The condemnation comes after the Buck campaign sent a fundraising email on Nov. 26 to supporters repeating an unsubstantiated allegation that Omar secretly works for the country of Qatar and should be gravely punished for it, according to the Tampa Bay Times.

“We should hang these traitors where they stand,” the email said.

It wasn’t clear who the other “traitors” were, but the note also mentions Crist, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and other members of the so-called “squad,” Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts and Rashida Tlaib of Michigan.

Buck initially denied writing the email that was signed by him and blamed it on his campaign manager.

“That was not me. I did not see that,” Buck told the Tampa Bay Times. “I would never talk like that.”

Later, Buck reversed course and defended the email. He sent the newspaper a statement that included the constitutional definition of treason and its punishment: “death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000.”

“Anyone who commits treason against the United States should be tried to the full extent of the law,” Buck said.

Buck was the GOP nominee for Florida’s 13th congressional district in 2018 but lost out to Crist, the former Florida governor.

This is not the first time a politician has suggested Omar be hanged.

Twitter suspended the accounts of Danielle Stella, a GOP candidate hoping to challenge Omar for Congress after she posted last month about killing the congresswoman.

Stella’s account, @2020MNCongress, accused Omar –without evidence – of working against the United States.

“If it is proven @IlhanMN passed sensitive info to Iran, she should be tried for #treason and hanged,” Stella’s campaign tweeted, according to the Washington Times.

Her account also tweeted a picture of a stick figure hanging from the gallows, the Times reported.

Omar retweeted comments from supporters Wednesday calling Buck’s email a death threat and calling for NRCC to condemn him.

She got the backing of fellow squad member Tlaib who accused Republicans of standing by white supremacy.

“The fact that those who make these violent threats very publicly without hesitation reaffirms just how much white supremacy has spread within the @NRCC. They are raising money on a call to hang a Black Muslim member of Congress and too many are silent,” Tlaib wrote and Omar retweeted.

NATO leaders mocking Trump in video proof America ‘cannot be trusted’ by allies, Cory Booker says

Sen. Cory Booker said Wednesday the now-infamous video of world leaders appearing to laugh at the expense of President Trump at a NATO event on London is proof America “cannot be trusted” by its allies.

The New Jersey Democrat  was on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” when he criticized Trump for calling Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau “two-faced.”

“On the world stage, [Trump] just insulted, called the leader of Canada, our most essential ally who has been there with us in every conflict since 9/11, standing in partnership with us in so many ways, to just throw out a school-yard taunt, or punch, like that… [it] stunned me,” Booker said.

Sen. Cory Booker said the video of world leaders appearing to laugh at the expense of President Trump is proof American “cannot be trusted” by its allies.

“Morning Joe” co-host Willie Geist then said Trump’s “two-faced” remark was in response to the viral video of Trudeau, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, and French President Emmanuel Macron and others appearing to laugh at Trump during a Buckingham Palace discussion on Tuesday.

“It appears that they’re making fun of President Trump,” Geist said. “Put that together with the way we’ve seen some of these leaders push back on President Trump at this NATO summit. What picture does it paint of where we are in the world right now?”

Booker, who’s running for president, responded, “America, right now, cannot be trusted.”

“Our allies no longer trust us. It is weakening the fabric of democracies at a time when the planet Earth is seeing the rise of totalitarianism or authoritarian government,” he said. “This president seems to be weakening western and democratic alliances.”

Booker added, “Republicans know this… they know what’s going on.”

Geist didn’t ask a follow-up question and host Joe Scarborough quickly asked about Sen. Kamala Harris D-Calif, dropping out of the 2020 presidential race.

The news-making video of some of the world’s most powerful leaders appearing to poke fun at Trump was shared by the Canadian Broadcasting Company (CBC). When Trump was asked about it during a bilateral meeting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, he said of Trudeau, “He’s two-faced.”

Trudeau appeared to be at the center of the video joking about Trump’s impromptu press conference on Tuesday.
