Floyd Mayweather Flaunts Million Dollar Cheques For Those Who Say He Can't Read

Posted in: , ,

Floyd Mayweather has responded in his own way to all those people on the Internet who had been making fun of him for not being able to read (audio here). Without saying much, the champion boxer posted a picture of two multi-million dollar checks on Twitter, along with the caption ‘Read this’.

$31 million? $40 million! OMG, not that we didn't know he was mega rich, but still, that is just two checks within a period of one year!

This reminds me of what one of my followers said on Facebook in defense of Floyd. He said;

Reading 50 Shades Linked To Abusive Relationships, Binge Drinking And Eating Disorders

Posted in: , ,

A university professor has posited in a study that young women who read the "50 Shades" books are more likely than nonreaders to exhibit signs of eating disorders and have a verbally abusive partner.

The study, which appears in the Journal of Women’s Health, is one of the first to investigate the relationship between health risks and reading popular fiction depicting violence against women. The study's lead investigator is Amy Bonomi of the Department of Human Development and Family Studies. She says;

“We recognize that the depiction of violence against women in and of itself is not problematic, especially if the depiction attempts to shed serious light on the problem. The problem comes when the depiction reinforces the acceptance of the status quo, rather than challenging it.”

The study states also that women who read all three books in the “Fifty Shades” erotic romance series are at increased risk of engaging in binge drinking and having multiple sex partners.

Floyd Mayweather Cannot Read? Radio Station Provides Evidence After 50Cent's Challenge

Posted in: , , ,

Boxing champion Floyd Mayweather may have more money than he knows what to do with, but it seems to be common knowledge that he can't read very well.

First, 50Cent took to Instagram yesterday and challenged Floyd Mayweather, [who has a special woman bathe him every morning here] to a special version of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.

50Cent asked Floyd Mayweather to read one full page of a Harry Potter book in exchange for a $750,000 donation to charity, and many who were in on the joke laughed. A lot. The idea of 50 going to such great lengths to troll Mayweather was hilarious.

But now, Rado Station, Power 105's "The Breakfast Club" may have just taken the joke a bit too far, by providing some evidence of Floyd's struggles to read. He won't be a happy man I can tell you.

Seems President Jonathan Is Reading A Very Boring Book #ReadersAreLeaders

Posted in: , , ,

President Goodluck Jonathan was photographed reading a book today by his assistant on publicity, Reuben Abati, who captioned the photots, #PresidentialReadingTime: President Jonathan perusing "Topics in West African History" by Adu Boahen #Random #ReadersareLeaders.

It's certainly good to read, but the book President Goodluck was reading must have been boring because he had fallen asleep by the final pictures. Or simply not into the book? I suggest someone gives him a copy of A Love Rekindled :)

But who decided to share these pictures? See them below...
