Today in Hell Hath Frozen Over, pals and business partners Snoop Dogg and Martha Stewart both made some very unexpected announcements this week.
First up, Snoop. Yesterday, the 52-year-old star of Soul Plane took to the social media to announce that he was giving up “smoke.” As in… marijuana? His trademark? Has the world gone mad? Here’s the post, which may or may not be a joke and/or sneaky PR for a new line of edibles:
Snoop once claimed to smoke between “75 and 150 joints a day”. So, if this is true, I hope he’s ready for life to get a lot more boring. Seriously. Have you tried watching The Gilded Age *not* stoned? Nathan Lane’s Foghorn Leghorn accent is 78% less amazing.
In addition to smoking weed everyday, Snoop has launched several marijuana related companies and cannabis products. In fact, just hours before his post about giving up “smoke”, he and Martha Stewart announced their new venture, Best Buds Bags. They’re weed bags that come with lighters and secret pockets. Oo la la!
Now for Martha’s big news. The Queen of Thanksgiving (for real, they crowned her and everything) went on The Kelly Clarkson Show and announced that she’s called off her Thanksgiving dinner this year. Apparently, 82-year-old Martha is sick of turkeys:
“Oh, I gave up Thanksgiving. I canceled. Nine guests canceled because somebody got sick. So, I called up my chef friend and I said, ‘We’re not doing Thanksgiving.’ And I’ve also cooked like 14 turkeys already for my TV show, and I still have to do one more turkey on The Today Show, so, forget it!”
Kelly said, “You’re a little turkeyed out!”, and Martha agreed. But if you think Martha’s just going to lie in bed all day getting stoned and catching up on The Gilded Age, think again.
“I made a plan. Friends, of course, invited me to their homes, so I’m going to about five different homes to taste different courses.”
Kelly joked that Martha’s friends “must be so stressed out,” and Martha replied, “Oh, I hope so!” and giggled. Here’s Martha on Kelly Clarkson:
Something tells me that by this time next year, Snoop and Martha will be back to their old ways. Hell, they’ll probably launch a special tryptophan-infused strain of indica called “The Gobbler”. Mmmm.
