2019 headlines often feel like Mad Libs written by a madman. Take two proper names that have no reason to be connected, throw in a wild card noun or two, and a verb with some wallop. Boom. 2019 newsworthy! And today’s Mad Libs headline is not nightmarish, just madcap fun. Former First Lady Michelle Obama hit One Direction’s Harry Styles square in the crotch with a dodge ball.
Observe the nut shot heard ‘round the world.

Now if you’re asking what and why, the answer to both is James Corden. Because of course it is.
On The Late Late Show with James Corden, the English entertainer begins a bit that seems like it’ll be another Carpool Karaoke segment with Michelle Obama. But then the pair begin to argue over America vs. The UK. Who has better music? Who is better at sports? Specifically, which nation is better at dodgeball? So naturally, they enlist their celebrity friends to settle that question with a no-holds-barred showdown: Team US versus Team UK, contending for dodgeball supremacy.
Team USA boasted Obama, Allison “Uncanny” Janney, Mila “The Killer” Kunis,
Melissa “Never Miss” McCarthy, Lena “Wildcard” Waithe, and Kate “Hacksaw” Hudson.
Team UK was made up of Corden, Harry “Sign of the Crimes” Styles, Benedict “The Claw” Cumberbatch, John “Hurt You Badly” Bradley, and Reggie “Windmill” Watts, who is an American, ringer, and traitor.
And here’s the full video of how this showdown went down.
Tough times, Corden! Well, not as tough as that AMA…
